ON THE COVER
Gene Littler's smooth swing is evident even in this sand trap shot. Not so evident to the general public, however, is the truly great competitive record this unassuming Californian has forged since he turned professional in 1954. It is a matter of fact that Littler's accomplishments have never been given their just die simply because Gene Littler himself has such a retiring nature. Walt Roessing's feature (page 28) delves deeply into Littler's character–why he acts the way he does; how he feels about his golfing feats and about his acceptance by the public.
