Sutton stretches lead to four shots PHOENIX (AP)-Front-runner Hal Sutton overcame a balky putter with a 3-under-par 68 and stretched his lead to four strokes Saturday In the third round of the $500,000 Phoenix Open Golf Tournament. "It could have been a lot lower," the former PGA champion said. "I had some opportunities I didn't capital-1 ize on." Sutton completed three trips over the Phoenix Country Club course in 196,17 j shots under par and the lowest 54-hole total on the PGA Tour Sutton since Larry Nelson had the same in the 1984 Walt Disney World Open. But Sutton was far from satisfied. "I haven't beat the golf course as much as I want to beat it," he said. And, even with a four-shot lead, he's taking nothing for granted going into today's final round of the chase for a $90,000 first prize. "If I lay back, rest on my laurels, try to play par golf, somebody is going to come out and catch me. I'm going to play aggressively. I'm going to try to make as many birdies as I can," said the man who, in 12 rounds this year, has scored 67 birdies. Veteran Howard Twitty, a Phoenix native, could do no better than a 70 in the warm, sunny weather, but retained second at 200. "I never could get started. I just couldn't get anything going," Twitty said. "I wasn't as comfortable as I'd like to have been." And he was well aware than he faces a formidable task in attempting to overtake Sutton. "He's going to be tough to catch," Twitty said. Calvin Peete, the defending titleholder, ran a 173-yard, &-iron shot into the cup for an eagle-2 on the llth hole and was five shots off the pace at 201. Jack Nicklaus, not really in title contention, drove the green on the 320-yard, par-4 fifth hole and made a long putt for eagle-2, the highlight of a 69 that left him at 210. Sutton, who had a two-shot lead when the day's play started, struggled and scrambled out of rough and from behind trees over the first seven holes but was 2-under par for the day until he made his first bogey of the tournament on the eighth. "I'd had a few breaks up to that point," Sutton said. He saved par from difficult positions on the 10th and 12th, then pulled away from Twitty with a 20-foot birdie putt on the 14th and a 12-footer on the 15th. He bogeyed the 16th after a poor drive, then got the shot back with a 9-iron approach that left him a 40-inch putt on the 17th.

(AP) - Barb Thomas, who hasn't finished better than fourth in any event during her three years on the LPGA tour, fired a 6-under-par 66 Saturday and emerged with a one-stroke leading heading into the final round of the $200,000 Mazda Classic. The best round of her professional career gave Thomas a 54-hole total of 8-under 208 over the 6,368-yard course at the new Stonebridge Golf and Country Club. Sally Little also came out of the pack Saturday, shooting a 67 to stand alone in second place at 209 going into Sunday's final round. Robin Walton is at 210 after a third- round 71, and defending champion Hollis Stacy is joined at 211 by Val Skinner, Patty Sheehan and Sandra Palmer. Oddly enough, Thomas started her round with a bogey on the first hole. She quickly rebounded, scoring seven birdies and no bogeys the rest of the way. She started the day 2-under and. was 6-under at the turn following a five-foot birdie putt at the third hole, a chip-in from 30 feet off the fourth green and birdie putts of 10 to 1 20 feet at the sixth, seventh and ninth holes. Thomas, who celebrated her 25th birthday Tuesday, sank a 20-footer for a birdie at the llth green and an 18-foot birdie putt at the 16th to gain the lead. "My attitude is good," said Thomas, whose best previous professional round was a 68. "I proved that at the very start after I got a bogey on the first hole."
