Clarence Moore, 63, of Winnsboro, S.C., took four consecutive holes early in the match and went on to defeat Robert Harris, of Edina, Minn., 6 and 4, in the final at The Loxahatchee Club, in Jupiter, Fla. It was the second Senior Amateur title for Moore, whose final margin of victory was the largest in the 38-year history of the championship.

Moore led after five holes, 3-up, and from that point was never seriously threatened. He recorded three birdies on the first nine and was just one over par when the match ended at the 14th hole.

In the semi-finals, Moore advanced by defeating John Stieneker, of Dallas, Texas, 1 up, while Harris eliminated Dick Goerlich, of Tampa, Fla., 3 and 2.

Two players shot 7-over-par 151 to share medalist honors: Bob Hullender, 55, of San Antonio, Texas, who just two years earlier had undergone artificial hip replacement surgery, and John Proctor, of Carrollton, Texas. Neither, however, was able to advance past the third round. Proctor lost a first-round match to Jim Thigpen, of Fort Worth, Texas, 2 and 1, while Hullender won twice before losing to Goerlich, 3 and 2.
