(AP) — The best Ernie Els could do at windswept Warwick' Hills Country Club on Saturday was even-par 72, but that was good enough for a three-stroke lead at 203 heading into the final round of the Buick Open. Curtis Strange, Larry Mize and Brad Fabel were tied for second at 206. Strange shot 68. Mize 69 and Fabel 70 in Saturday's third round. Vijay Singh shot 67 and Tom Pernice had 68; each tied at 207. Els, who could do no wrong while building a four-stroke lead during the second High Rollers: Casino Bets $1 Million Versus Perfect Game During TV Final Hills, But Holds On To Lead At Buick Open round,'struggled in the third round. He took a big step backward with a double-bogey at the par-4 second hole. Two birdies and a bogey later, he made the turn in 37. Els almost pitched in for eagle on No, 13 for the second straight day, but his shot from a greenside bunker hit the pin and rolled •three feet past the hole. That birdie finally got him back to 13-under, exactly where he was at the start of the round. A thunderstorm rolled across the area at 5:15 p.m., just as Els was teeing off on No. 15. He hooked his drive into the rough, on the upslope of a fairway bunker, and play was suspended moments later. The delay lasted only 30 minutes, but the struggle continued for Els who lipped out a three-foot putt for bogey at the 15th. That dropped him back to 12-under and into a tie with Mize. Undaunted, Els birdied the next two holes and appeared firmly back in charge. But a bogey at the final hole forced him to settle for 72 — and a shaky lead. Mize, starting at 7-under, launched a solid, steady round with a birdie on the first hole. He birdied No. 7 to turn in 34. Mize started the back side with birdies on three of the first four holes. He birdied No. 16 to get to 12-under, tied with Els at that point. But Mize ran into trouble on the final hole. He double-bogeyed for 69 and fell into a tie with Strange at 206. . On the 18th, Mize drove into a bunker, pitched out to the beaten down grass of the fairway crosswalk, skulled a shot into the back fairway bunker, pitched out to the fringe, and two-putted. "Actually, I made two good putts just to save 6," Mize said. Mize, the 1987 Masters champion, won the Buick Open in 1993. But he hasn't won anything on the PGA Tour since then. 'Fabel, who has never won a Tour event, looked hoplessly out of it when he turned at 37. But he ran off birdies on Nos. 11-13, then added a birdie at No. 17 for his 70. Strange, starting at 6-under, birdied No. 10 to get~to 9-under. He dropped a shot with bogey at No. 11, but birdies at Nos. 13 and 14got him back on track. He got to 11-under with a 3-foot birdie putt at No. 16, but gave it back with bogey on the next hole. Strange, winiess in this country since the 1989 U.S. Open championship, shot 68 for 206. From Knight-Ridder Newspapers LAS VEGAS — This city is known as the gambling mecca of the world. But normally, the casinos don't make the bets. The Herald has learned the Showboat Hotel/Casino/Bowling Center is going to gamble there will be no 300 game rolled in a championship match during nine CBS telecasts in 1998. If a PBA bowler rolls a 300 game in an event final, he will win $1 million from the Showboat, Mark Gerberich, commissioner of the Professional Bowlers Association, said, "I'm not going to confirm we have a deal." But Jack Cook, general manager of the Showboat's 106-lane bowling facility, said "it's a win-win deal for everybody ... CBS, the TV viewers, the bowlers, the PBA and the Showboat." Certainly with $1 million at stake each Saturday, TV ratings should climb drastically. But don't get the idea the Showboat is striking a bad deal. In 36 years of PBA broadcasts, there have been 10 perfect games. And only two bowlers — Bob Benoit and Mike Aulby in 1993 — have managed to string 12 strikes in a championship game. The Showboat, which last year struck a $1.5million, two-year sponsorship deal with the PBA, will remain the umbrella sponsor of the Senior Tour next year. "We plan to continue to work with the Showboat as a vital partner," Gerberich said. The commissioner also said no decision has been made concerning announcers for next year's CBS telecasts. Asked about the possibility of TV personality Chris Hardwick, son of former Miamians Billy (an ABC-PBA Hall of Famer) and Sharon (daughter of Palm Springs Lanes owner Jim Facente), landing one of the CBS announcing jobs, Gerberich said: "Chris would be a great person to have on the show. But there is no rush to pick the announcers since the first telecast is not until April." MUFFLERS Brakes & Shocks ;«JttWJfURKET, (ATCICOTT ST.)
