Ball, Ogden, Scott Star On TV Golf Show Tonight Pros, Simon Pures to Be Seen From Tarn OShanter on WNBQ Errie Ball, pro at Oak Park Country Club, and Bill Ogden, Illinois PGA metal-play champion, tonight will be the pair of play-for-pay stars on the .DeMet Pon-tiac television golf show emanating from George S. Mays Tarn OShanter Country Club in Niles over Station WNBQ at 11 p.m. The two amateurs who complete the weekly foursome will be Ken Scott, Illinois Junior titlist, and the low simon pure in the local sectional qualifying round for the National Open, which was held at Twin Orchards yesterday. Ball long has -been rated among the top club pros in the game, whileOgden is making rapid strides in that direction. In the weekly DeMet series, inaugurated last week when Dutch Harrison, Johnny Revolta, Chick Evans and Art Hoff competed, the pros play against each other, as do the amateurs, over a special seven-hole layout around Tarns celebrated 18th green. The seventh tee is from 140 yards out, on the identical spot where Lew Worsham sank his 5,000 eagle duece to win the World Championship of Golf last August. Any pro duplicating Worshams feat will win a Pontiac at the direct expense of sponsor Pete DeMet.
