CASEY'S CART-WARMING STORY GRABBING PRE-OPEN HEADLINES
Published June 17, 1998
Casey Martin and his use of a golf cart are dominating the pre-tournament headlines at the U.S. Open, which begins tomorrow at S.F.'s Olympic Club. The USGA decided to allow Martin "to use a regular cart" during play after he "continued to have mechanical difficulties with his specially designed one-seat cart." Martin played a practice round at Olympic yesterday with former Stanford teammates Tiger Woods and Joel Kriebel, with a "[l]arge gallery" following the threesome (Clifton Brown, N.Y. TIMES, 6/17). Also in N.Y., Luke Cyphers writes that Martin has become a "fan favorite" (N.Y DAILY NEWS, 6/17). In Orlando, Larry Guest writes that golf officials and traditionalists "can sneer all they want" at Martin and his cart, "[b]ut a judge and a rather sizeable portion of the public have declared themselves in the Casey Camp" (ORLANDO SENTINEL, 6/17).
