He was the only man able to break par over a course where the fairway grass was left loo long by accident. White his idols like Jack Nicklaus, Johnny Miller, Hale Irwin and Tom Weiskopf were struggling with the high ber- muda grass, lieid, 21, became the first amateur in five years lo lake an Open lead Thursday by putting together a string of three straight birdies and posting a 3-under-par 67.

Sport -0-Grams By FRED DOWN UPI Sports Writer The New York Yankees have reunited the "Big Three" of (he Oakland A's world championship pitching staff from 1972 through 1974 but at least one of Ihem thinks reliever Sparky Lyle may be Ihe key lo winning Ihe American League pennant. He's Jim Hunter, who scored his eighth victory with the relief help of Lyle Thursday night, when Ihe Yankees beat the Chicago White Sox, 5-4, and increased their AL Eastern Division lead to six games. Hunter has eight victories and Lyle four wins and 10 saves. "Last year the Yankees didn't use Sparky," said Hunter, now reunited with Vida Blue and Ken Hollzman after Tuesday's sensational sales and trades. "This year Ihey started using him and he looks like the old Sparky." Run-scoring hits by Fran Healy, Willie Randolph, Oscar Gamble and Carlos May led the 12-hit New York attack, which tagged Terry Forster with his fourth defeat and sent the While Sox to Iheir seventh straight loss. Baltimore defeated Texas, 41, California beat Milwaukee, 20, Minnesota topped Detroit, 40, in a rain-shortened, five- inning game, and Boston downed Oakland, 8-3, in other AL games. Philadelphia shaded San Francisco, 3-2, and New York " days of meetings involving ments, to be decided solely by the chance of a suit by his group discussion of the Nets moving O'Brien and his advisory com- 18 original NBA clubs, should be against the NBA. oul of Uniondale NY " said mitteeoffour NBA owners along announced in the next week so rj n e of Ihe last things to be Michael Burke, Knicks president and a member of the NBA advisory board.

G©LF TIPS^H By Thor Evensen if The "Wedge" A Tough Club If your handicap is ten or owr, leave your wedge in the bag on fringe approach shots. Old timers like Samen and Billy Burke used lo save pars and earn birdies by using a "jigger" for approaching from the "/roghair". The "Jigger" has a modern counterpart in the four iron which has the s ame loflas the older club. You can regulate distance by gripping up or down on the shaft. The ide a is to roll the ba II close enough to the cup for a putt. Practice this shot with your four or five iron until it becomes automatic and watch your scores become lower.
