Scoring on the Green

Houston -- Masters Golf champ Jack Burke sinks a "sold" sign in the lawn of a Houston house he's selling to Mr. and Mrs. Webb Melder. Burke and fellow golfer Jimmy Demaret are partners in a Houston real estate firm, to which Burke plans to devote most of his time. Though only 33 and with his first big title just won, Burke is going into semi-retirement from the links. He says he'll play just enough to keep up his game for the big tournaments, spending his time at the business and with his family. (1956)
