JACKSON, Michigan (AP)

Dave Hill, a 13-time winner on the PGA Tour who made three Ryder Cup appearances for the United States and won the 1969 Vardon Trophy for the tour's lowest scoring average, has died. He was 74.

Hill died Tuesday. He suffered from emphysema for several years, brother Mike Hill - also a former PGA Tour player - told the Jackson Citizen Patriot newspaper.

Hill finished second in the 1970 U.S. Open at Hazeltine in Minnesota, making headlines for saying the course ''lacked only 80 acres of corn and a few cows to be a good farm'' and that architect Robert Trent Jones ''had the blueprints upside down.''
