King wins medal in qualifying for Senior Amateur


HAYMARKET, Va. -- Dave King of Sterling, Va., continued a summer-long stretch of outstanding play when he posted a 1-over-par 73 at Evergreen Country Club, and collected the qualifying medal in sectional competition for the U.S. Senior Amateur championship yesterday.

King, 58, the reigning Maryland State and Northern Virginia Senior titlist, led a field of 43 starters with 35-3873 against a par of 36-3672 for the 6,645-yard course some 20 miles south of Leesburg.

With four places available for the championship, to be played Oct. 2-7 in Portland, Ore., Jamie Gough of Fairfax, Va., and James Kite of Wolftown, Va., earned two of them with 74s.

George Sampson of Bowie got the other when he birdied the first extra hole (No. 10) to defeat Arthur Mason of Chevy Chase. They had tied with regulation 75s.

(Scores, 5D)
