E4-Palm Beach Part-Times, Snniay , Nv. 24, 1X8 Kathy Whitworth Pads Suggs Lead With Second 69 Pats Rookie QB Facing Miami Go BOSTON (AP) - The Boston Patriots, nearing the end of a miserable season, attempt to snap a four-game losing streak Sunday in an American Football League meeting with the Mia ni Dolphins. The Patriots hope to have rookie quarterback Tom Sherman, former Penn State star signed as a free agent, available for full- and move into third place in th By CHUCK VOORHIS Golf Editor DELRAY BEACH - The lady pros will be playing for second place in the Third Annual Louise Suggs Invitational LPGA tour tournament at the Pine Tree Golf Club today. Kathy Whitworth of Dallas, leading money winner on the 1968 tour, all but clinched her 10th win of the tour with a 36-hole total of 138, eight shots in front of the field. She stacked a 3-under 69 score Saturday atop a similar score in the opening round Friday. Her closest rivals are Sherrv Wilder and Donna Caponi with 146s. Four were tied at 147, nine shots away and a lot of shots to pick up in one round. Katv Friday said she hoped for a pair of 72s in her closing rounds. She thought they would be good enough to win. Now she is hoping for another par 72, which would put her total far out of reach of the pack. She called Pine Tree, groomed by head greenskeeper. Don Ward, one of the best 'conditioned courses she had ever played. Carol Mann of Buffalo, who has one more tour win than Miss Whitworth, but trails her in the money circle, has had rounds of 74-73-147. Kathy opened with a 30-footer for a bird on the second, and a 25-footer for another bird on the third, and was glad "it hit the cup or it would have been long gone." She hit a wedge to the green for a fS-foot putt for a bird at the 9th. Her one bogie came at the 4th where she missed the green on her approach, chipped short and took two putts on this par four hole. She was out in 34, and then hit every green on the back side, except the 16th where she came off a 3-wood shot but chipped close enough for a put and her par. Her birdie on this side came at the 12th, normally a par four but now a par five, where she was down in two putts. The famed 13th. the par-three with 15 traps from tee to green, called for a precise choice of clubs. She used a 5-ironFriday and a 7-iron Saturday to hit the green.

However, he was discharged Friday in time to work out with the Patriots. Shermaa woi the startiag job after veteran Mike Taliaferro, obtained from the New York Jets in Jdy, failed to come through. Taliaferro also is nursing a sore arm. The Patriots Saturday activated Jim Corcoran, the star quarterback of their Lowell Giants farm club, for the game with the Dolphins. The 26-year-old graduate of the University of Maryland has been the outstanding passer in the Atlantic Coast Conference the last two years. The Dolphins will be bolstered by the return of former Syracuse star Larry Csonka. The hard-hitting fullback has been out three weeks with a head injury. The Patriots, who have won only three of 10 games, are slight favorites over the Dol phins, who own a 3-6-1 mark However, Boston has several in jury problems. Nick Bnonicoati, a perennial all-AFL middle linebacker, h sidelines with a knee injary Free safety Don Webb and split end Jim Cotclongh are also lost, while strong safety John Charles is a question mark.
