It may sound like a broken record, but Marty West has won again. This time, it was in the McLeod Eastern Four Ball Championship at Chevy Chase yesterday, and it was with former University of North Carolina teammate Bill Boles.
The pair had a 13-under-par 194 in the 54-hole event, four strokes better than defending champions Henri de-Lozier, West's Columbia Country Club clubmate, and Buddy Marucci, former University of Maryland golf captain.
Two weeks ago, West won the Middle Atlantic Amateur championship to go with his many area titles. He also has been a member of the Walker Cup team twice and has played in four Masters tournaments.
West and Norman Swenson won the McLeod title in 1976. Swenson was supposed to have played with West in this tournament but pulled out.
Boles, a dentist in Wilson, N.C., did his share yesterday. He got the team started on the fourth hole when he holed out a sand shot for a birdie 3. Boles followed with a birdie on the fifth. West birdied the short 10th, Boles shaved a stroke off par on the 14th and West came back with a final birdie on the 17th.
A decision was made yesterday by Les Barker, president of the Middle Atlantic Golf Association, rescinding a penalty on deLozier. Saturday, deLozier was penalized a stroke on the short fourth for picking up the marker on his ball before everybody had putted. However, it had no bearing on the outcome.
DeLozier and Marucci played flawless golf on the first time for a 34 but were erratic on the back, where they had three birdies and two bogeys for a 33 and a total 67.
This tournament, which for 10 years had been held at Columbia, was shifted to Chevy Chase this year because of construction on the Columbia course. [TEXT OMITTED FROM SOURCE] nolia course at this sprawling amusement complex.
he victory in the event that closed the 10-month PGA Tour schedule was worth $31,500 to each of the Edwards, 29-year-old Dave and 24-year-old Danny.
Although the money is unofficial and does not count on the season's money winning list, the victory provided Dave with a one-year exemption from qualifying. Danny already owned an exemption. It was the first career victory for Dave, the second for Danny.
Tied for second at 255 were the teams of Gibby Gilbert and Grier Jones, Mike Harmon and Barry Harwell, and Dan Halldorson and Dana Quigley.
Halldorson, a winner last week at Pensacola, and Quigley had a final round 62. So did Harmon and Harwell. Gilbert and Jones made up the most ground with a 61.
