Schnell beat Mike Bender of Okoboji by three shots. Schnell wins Open; Hoefle top amateur j , Standing on the second tee Sunday during the final round of the Iowa Open golf championship at the Lake Panorama course in Fanora, Gene r. Elliott looked over at Curt Schnell on the first green. "I think we're all playing for second," Elliott said. Prophetic words, indeed. Schnell, who started the day with a two-shot lead, fired a third consec-, utive 3-under-par 69 and captured his third Iowa Open championship by h" three shots. His 207 total was the lowest winning score in 19 years. This was the seventh straight year that Lake Panorama has been host to the -tournament, and the previous low score for 54 holes on the 7.001-vard unA knnn n am t.Ai u.. ttm 1 ; t I rr. i:n i. mod r-i i : it tuuisc uau uccu a iiu suui uy jbinuii auu terry miner ill laoo. Ciiuuii "won the playoff. i "It feels good to get No. 3," said Schnell, who resides in Bettendorf but . works as a teaching pro at the Des Moines Golf and Country Club. "I won ' in 1978, 1982 and now 1991. At this rate, I'll have to wait until the year "2000 to win again." , Mike Bender of Okoboji, who started the final round two shots behind Schnell, was trailing by five shots with eight holes remaining. He nar rowed tnat dencit to two snots on tne DacK nine, but could get no closer. "Curt played great golf," said Bender. "Sixty-nine was a very good ""score today." Bender closed with a 70. Waterloo pro Mark Lemon also finished with a 69, the best round of - the day, and finished third. He was eight shots behind Schnell. The Ames duo of Jay Horton and Bill Hoefle tied for low amateur at ' 218. Hoefle's finish enabled him to pass Mike McCoy of Des Moines and capture Iowa's 1991 Amateur of the Year award. Hoefle finished with 780 points. "I'm very happy with the way I played this summer," Hoefle said. "I played much better in the state than I did in national amateur events." McCoy, who had 750 points, started the Iowa Open with a 1 0-point lead , xover Hoefle. - "We both came here knowing what we had to do," said McCoy. "I 1 "didn't respond, and Bill played great. I had one bad hole this week." That was the 171-yard, par-3 No. 13. McCoy had a triple bogey in the -first round and a double bogey Sunday. He finished four shots behind ""Hoefle and Horton. Hoefle already had started classes at Oklahoma State, but came back to play in the Iowa Open because he had a chance to be the state's top amateur. He flew back to Stillwater, Okla., Sunday night so he could make his cost accounting class at 9:30 this morning. "I knew I had to finish third or better, and I had to beat Mike," Hoefle said. Schnell's final-round 69 wasn't without a little excitement. That in- deluded what turned out to be a very good bogey on the par-4 fifth hole. " Schnell's second shot hit a railroad piling in front of the green, bounced high in the air and dropped into a water hazard. He took a drop, then wedged his fourth shot 4 feet above the hole. -When he putted the ball, he thought he had missed it and started walking ,toward the hole. But the ball broke left at the last second and fell in. , "Curt was there for the offensive rebound in case it lipped out," said playing partner Dave Hilgenberg, jokingly. "He was going to jam it in." ; Birdies at No. 8 and No. 10 gave Schnell a five-shot lead. But Bender birdied No. 11, then chipped in from a terrible lie near the green for an 'eagle at the par-5 No. 12. Schnell birdied the hole, but saw his lead shrink to two shots when he bogeyed No. 13. "When Mike's shot went in on 12, 1 thought to myself, 'You've got to be kidding,' " Schnell said. "That's why I call him 'Scrappy.' He always battles you." A 25-footer for birdie on the par-3 16th increased Schnell's lead to .three shots. After missing the green on No. 17, a brilliant chip from behind the hole and a 5-foot par putt ended Bender's hope of a second - Iowa Open crown. - "I had not been putting well at all this summer," Schnell said. "But "two weeks ago, I saw a flaw in my setup and corrected it. This is as good f as I've putted for a long time." Rick Brown f c D PriO Wins Canadian Open. Nick Price used a string of five consecutive birdies to claim a one-stroke victory Sunday in the 82nd Canadian Open Golf Championship at Oakville, Ontario. "This is very, very special to me," Price said after his bogey-free "final-round 66 over the Glen Abbey Golf Club course. . ' "To win a national championship of this stature is so important to me. :i This will give me a lot more confidence than I've had before ever," he eHsaid. n: I L: I f tin nMJ J..

Harry Gant won Friday's Busch Grand National race, the first ever run under the lights at Richmond's ft-mile, D-shaped layout. Then Saturday, Gant won the Miller Genuine Draft 400, the inaugural nighttime Winston Cup event at the facility. : "We made some changes based on what we learned in the Busch race, I and it really helped," Gant said. Drivers Davey Allison and Ernie Irvan 'also used the Grand National as a warm-up. D Mansell revives hopes.

He led the last 83 laps of the ' 100-lap event. He lapped the field twice except for the second- and third-place finishers. Opponent: Iowa (1-0) Whenwhere: 11:35 a.m. Saturday Cyclone Stadium, Ames Television: Cyclone network (WOI, AmesDes Moines; KMEG, Sioux City; KIMT, Mason City; KCRG, Cedar Rapids; WQAD, Quad-Cities; KPTM, Omaha, Neb.) Iowa Slate update; At least one of the Cyclones admitted Saturday to looking beyond last week's opponent, Eastern Illinois, to this week's game against Iowa. "I've been thinking about it for a long time," said quarterback Chris Pedersen after a 42-13 stroll past the team from the NCAA's Division I-AA. Pedersen did not play against Iowa last season because of a knee injury. "You can't over think about an opponent like Iowa," he said. One of Coach Jim Walden's concerns Saturday was the performance of Eastern Illinois quarterback Jeff Thome, who completed his first eight passes and kept the Iowa State offense on the bench for much of the first quarter. The Cyclones won't be able to afford Iowa's Matt Rodger the same luxury. "We've got to play defense better," Walden said. "We didn't get a great pass rush and we don't have great speed up front. But the biggest thing that bothered me was how many times we had (Thome) but didn't bring him down. We've got to quit bending so much, but at least we didn't break." Walden said he isn't sure which players will be withheld from competition, but freshman reserve tailback Leonard Holmes won't be. Holmes had six carries for 44 yards Saturday. 'We got (Holmes) in there because Lamont (Hill) and Sherman (Williams) got the cramps," Walden said. "We knew we weren't going to get through the season without playing Leonard Holmes, anyway." Walden said backup quarterback Bob Utter will be withheld from competi tion. The sophomore filled in during the two games Pedersen missed last season. I Iowa State Injury update: Offensive guard Doug Skartvedt bruised his right knee on the 13th play of the game and watched the remainder from the bench. "If there's no swelling, and we're not expecting any, hopefully he'll be able to practice Wednesday," Walden said. RandlJ peUrn Opponent: Iowa State (1-0) " Whenwhere: 11:35 a.m. SaturdayCyclone Stadium, Ames Television: Cyclone network (WOI, AmesDes Moines; KMEG, Sioux City; KIMT, Mason City; KCRG, Cedar Rapids; WQAD, Quad-Cities; KPTM, Omaha, Neb.) " Iowa update: "We're looking forward to the Iowa State game," Iowa Coach Hayden Fry said after his Hawkeyes opened the season with a SSAb victory Saturday over Hawaii. "Coach Jim Walden will have his team all fired up for us. Traditionally, it's a good game." , Based on the Cyclones' 42-13 victory Saturday against Eastern Illinois, Fty said it "appears Iowa State's defense has come on." ; Iowa has won the last eight games in the series, and has outscored Iowa State, 187-43, in the last four games at Ames. The Hawkeyes won last season In Iowa City, 45-35. After beating Hawaii, some of Iowa's players were already talking aboJU wanting to "keep this a Hawkeye state" by defeating Iowa State. " " Fry said he plans to continue having quarterback Matt Rodgen use option plays. "The option is too important to us," Fry said. Rodgers ran for 67 yards just one fewer than team leader Marvin "Scoot er" Lampkin against Hawaii. He also completed 12 of 18 passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns. Iowa injury update: No players were hurt against Hawaii. Fry said defensive end Moses Santos and linebacker Mike Dailey, who missed the Hawaii game with injuries, will likely be ready for Iowa State. - Ron Maly NORTHERN IOWA Opponent: Augustana (S.D.) (0-1) Whenwhere: 7 p.m. Saturday UNI-Dome, Cedar Falls Northern Iowa update: The game against Augustana of Sioux Falls, S.D., wouldn't appear close on paper, but Northern Iowa Coach Terry Allen said the Panthers aren't good enough to dominate. I see plenty of spaces for a ton of improvement," Allen said Sunday, one day after a 30-5 victory against McNeese State. "It's probably a good situation that we turn right back around and try to make up for the mistakes we had and become a little bit more polished team." Allen said most of Northern Iowa's mistakes can be corrected with playing time and experience. Northern Iowa injury update: The Panthers had no major Injuries. Au(ustana update: Augustana, which was 5-5 last year, dropped its open ing game Saturday, 28-10, to Southwest State of Minnesota. The Vikings leading returning rusher is John Bobinski, who gained 235 yards last year. He also passed for 761 yards. Bobinski ran 2 yards for Augustana s only touchdown against Southwest State. He rushed for 8 yards and passed for 49. The Vikings had only 212 yards Of Offense. Dan McCool THE POLLS ftP TOP 25 (First-place votes in parentheses with 1991 record, points, previous ranking) 1.
