Ingo Meets His Match

They laughed when Ingemar Johansson stepped up to the tee. But they laughed quietly. Followed by his fiancée, Birgit Lundgren, who nuzzled his ear, fondled his arm and gazed admiringly into his Nordic blue eyes, the heavyweight boxing champion of the world took a day off from training for his bout with Floyd Patterson and shot a remarkable—considering the circumstances—103 against TV Star Ed Sullivan (right).

Ingo is an average Sunday golfer with an average Sunday golfer's problems. He failed, as one expert observed, to use his full power, hitting only one good tee shot, a 200-yarder down the middle. Most of the time he topped, sliced or hooked his drives a dribbling 75 to 100 yards. Golf isn't the champion's game and, from the looks of it, Birgit couldn't care less.
