The two finished the regulation 72 holes with 14-under-par 274s. Chapman, long-ball hitter who doesn't carry a driver In his bag, whittled two strokes from Spray's lead on the morning 18 when he fired a 71 to the champion's 73. Still two strokes back, Chapman c a r d e d a four-under-par 32 on the front nine of the afternoon round to tie Spray, who had a 34, at 239. Both finished with one-under 35's, giving Chapman a 67 to Spray's 69. Bob Leahy , of Manning, a former' champion here, showed his Old-time form when he finished with a six-under-par 66 for 277 and third, place. Next came Luti Fontanini, the Des Moines slim man who was never over par, with a 69-71 for the final day to give him a 279. Par for Tourney Bill Fergus on of Des Moines, was three strokes back of Luti at 282. Shooting 284's were Rod Bliss III of Des Moines, who was second at the end of 36 holes, and Dr. Charles Updegraff of Boone. Spray nearly lost his chance at the title when he hooked his drive out-of-bounds on No. 13 in the afternoon. He put in a 25-footer for a bogey 5. He credited the putt as the stroke which kept up his courage. , "I just hooked the ball and my heart quivered a little," said Spray. "But when I dropped the putt I regained some of my confidence. "Then my eagle 3 on the sixteenth was a tranquilizer." ' A large gallery followed the two as they drove off No. 1 in the playoff. Spray's second shot landed 10 feet from the cup and his first putt was inches from the pin. ' Pair of Par 4's Chapman's second drifted 25 feet from the pin. He was down in two and they halved the hole with par 4s. ' Spray's tee shot on the 127- yard second hole settled 8 feet from the pin.
