T T vio Asbury Park PressFrl. July 18, 1980 Hoch takes Quad Cities Open lead gfesg Pinto Sliced Scores page C8 The Associated Press COAL VALLEY, 111. Scott Hoch fired a 7-under-par 63 yesterday to match the PGA tour's lowest score of the year and take the first-round lead of the $200,000 Quad Cities Open. The 32-31 round also equalled the course record at the 6,514-yard, 35-35-70 par Oak-' wood Country Club course. Six others on the tour have posted a 63 and six others also share the course record. It gave the 24-year-old Hoch, a rookie from Raleigh N.C., and former amateur ace from Wake Forest a two-stroke lead after a par-breaking round. Bunching up in pursuit of a $36,000 first prize at 65 were Bill Sander, the 1976 U.S Amateur champ from Seattle who has failed to make the cut in his last three starts Canadian Dan Halderson, runner-up in the Tucson Open this year; and Tom Jones, another tour rookie who has failed to qualify or has missed the cut in 14 of 18 tournaments. Queueing up at 66 were Tommy Valentine, who birdied the last hole with a 35-foot chip shot; Calvin Peete, the 1979 Quad Cities runner-up; Jim Barber, whose best this year is a tie for 43rd; and Gary Coch, whose best was a share of tenth at the Sea Pines Heritage. Bracketed at 67 were Pat McGowan, Woody Blackburn, South African Jeff Hawkes. Dave Eichelberger, Vance Heafner, John Adams, Morris Hatalasky, and Jim Thorpe. Curtis Strange, eighth on the money list and the only player In the field among the 25 leading cash winners, shot 69. Also at 69 was little-known Bill Lytle, who is being troubled by a bad wrist. The start of the tournament saw not only eagles and birdies coming in bunches, but also a showing of an animal. Bobby Clam-pett, ejected from the 1979 U.S. Open because of his cut-up antics, was playing in his first tournament as a pro. He was putting on the first green when a red fox darted out of the trees, ran across the fairway near the green and disappeared in the underbrush. Clampett went on to shoot a horrendous 74. Despite his sizzling 63, Hoch derided his game. "The best thing about the round is that it's over," said Hoch, whose only two full tournaments of the year resulted in tie for 23rd in the Atlanta Classic and a tie for 19th in the Western Open. "In the last two holes, I was lucky to get in with pars," Hoch said. After sinking putts ranging from four feet to 60, Hoch contended "I didn't hit the ball all that weU, but my putting kept me alive and I hit enough good shots to give myself some makeable putts. Hoch has a back ailment that sidelined him for about four months and now says he has to take daily medication. Thunder is heard from U.S. From page C5 "I'll give it my all to be better than them." Nehemiah, Paige and Fields, too, are "thinking August." Nehemiah, the 21-year-old world high hurdles record-holder from Scotch Plains, N.J., would have been a sure shot gold medal choice in Moscow. After assorted disappointments physical and other earlier this spring, he's solved all of them and was sharp in a wind-aided 13.31 victory last night. Southern California's Tony Campbell was a distant second in 13.68. "Hopefully one day, maybe in four years, I'll be able to compete in an Olympics," said Nehemiah. "I'm running for myself now, not to have the responsibility of running for a team. I have to look at it as an individual. Because I've been hurt, it's important to come around when I want. "I'm very private. To run j well I need a lot of time on my own." While many others were going all-out in the Oslo meet, Paige was passing it up completely so he could compete at full strength for his beloved Philadelphia fans. He added a Liberty Bell to the many Penn Relays watches he collected for Villanova at Franklin Field by fighting off Sudan's Kalifa Omar Kalifa down the homestretch of a 1:47.19 800 meters. "Haven't lost a race here in three years," said Paige, whose 1:44.53 800 in the U.S. Trials is the fastest in the world this year. "I certainly didn't want to see it happen now." In other noteworthy occurrences last night: Americans Bob Coffman (8058 points) and Lee Palles (8009) went 1-2 in the decathlon, far in front of China's third-place Weng Kanggiang as Guido Kratschmer, the West German holder of the world record, dropped out after seven events with a slight injury and (some said) a lark of motivation. Ben Plucknett, who nudged 43-year-old four-time gold medalist Al Oerter off the Olympic discus team, nudged him again, 201-8 to 1994. Steve Scott, America's finest miler, won the 1500 meters in 3:40.19. Kenyans Kip Rono (13:37.52) and Hilary Tuwei (13:39.72), students at Washington State and Richmond, respectively, went 1-2 in the 5000 meters. GOING TO THE TRACK?
