The amazement shown on the face of Ann Baker, 17 (left), a Maryville, Tenn. high school senior, is really just concern about one of her drives in the National Women's Amateur Championship in Rochester, N.Y. last week. But real amazement was justified when Ann's principal rival (right) blasted her way out of a sand trap with—of all clubs—a wood. Nobody, except maybe the blonde Kirk-land, Wash, champion, JoAnne Gunderson, would try such a shot and hope to come out alive. But unaccountable JoAnne, with the boldness that had twice won her this tournament, landed the ball just off the green—and went on to win the tournament once more (see page 82). Amazed Ann Baker was a disappointed runner-up.
