PAT ON THE BACK

JAMES I. EAST
At 86, Jim East has doubtless made more holes in one (133) than any other golfer. Most (118) have been scored on a "pitch and putt" course, Presidio Hills in San Diego where Jim played two rounds daily for 15 years until illness laid him low several weeks ago. Jim, who once challenged Ben Hogan to a hole-in-one duel (Hogan declined), has aced every hole at Presidio Hills at least twice. His first hole in one was scored 40 years ago.

JUDY TORLUEMKE
At 10, Judy Torluemke of St. Louis is shooting for her third straight National Pee Wee golf title (for ages up to 12). Her father induced her to take up golf four years ago, and Judy now averages a respectable 41 to 44 for nine holes, 84 to 88 for 18 on regulation courses. Though she weighs only 60 pounds, Judy can stroke a drive 170 yards. A regular victor over much older girls, Judy aspires to a professional championship.
