No fewer than 44 golfers cracked the par-71 over the 6,777-yard Harding Park course on a sunny but cool day as many of the country's top golfers fought for the $20,000 first prize In the four-day tournament.

New Mexico, which Is allowing more points per game (39) than anyone, won out this week. The Lobos (0-7) were ranked No. 1 among the nation's poorest major college football teams, following an Impressive 35-6 loss to Wyoming Saturday. Last week's No. 1 Wisconsin 0-6 dropped to No. 2 this week : by narrowly losing to Northwestern, 13-10, Saturday. Still, the Badgers' loss couldn't be taken too lightly. Northwestern ' came into the game winless, too. The Badgers are the lowest scoring team in the nation (5.6 per game)- With the defections of Northwestern and Baylor (a 10-9 winner over Texas A&M), just six teams remain winless: Wisconsin, New Mexico, Columbia, Illinois, Mississippi State and Rice. There Is no reason to believe the list will get smaller. None of the six will play each other this year. Today's menu: LAST LOSS NEXT CATASTROPHE Bombers. The modifieds take the week off because of the state modified championship Saturday night at Tampa's Gold Coast Speedway. The modifieds will return here next weekend. The Bomber division, which has proved popular at many southern tracks, has slightly smaller tires and engines than the stockers. The less-expensive machinery gives younger driv-ers-a place to gain experience economically. Man to beat tonight in the stockers is West Palm Beach's Buddy Pearce. The veteran driver gunned his stocker to the front early in the feature race last week and won handily- Stiffest competition should come from Jimmy Crowe and Chuck Wooten, both local drivers. That is, if the pair can avoid accidents. Last week Crowe crashed into the wall during warmups and put his car out of commission. Wooten crashed into the wall during the stocker feature and failed to finish. Others who could be among the front runners include Red Begtrup, Robbie McCoy, Ray Hansler, C. J. King and Porter Mellette. Promoters Ron Hall and Billy Dodds have also announced to make the compeitlton more intense the fastest cars based on point standings will start from the rear in future stocker and modified features. 1.
