"One of the things I've been trying to learn in the short while I've been on the tour is to play ohe round at a time," said Fezler. "I've been in ttiis position several times before and let it get-away. You simply cannot spend too much time thinking about It." Fezler, who got his tour card the fall of 1971, started Friday's round tied with Gay Brewer after both shot 67s in the opening round. It was the veteran rather than the newcomer who faded Friday as Brewer, who missed short putts on four straight holes, shot a 74 -14'1. Fezler, who has not finished j higher than a tie for eighth as a pro, had an erratic, even-par front nine Friday, but started the back nine with that 70- footer and added two more birdies to equal the 33 he shot on that side of Inverrary on Thursday. "Actually, I didn't play that well," Fezler said. "I haven't been chipping well and if I Biddy League To Play Today Biddy League basketball, sponsored by the Jaycees, will be resumed today at the Rosenwald gym with a full schedule of games.

Trevino, playing with a set of clubs he borrowed from Cesar Sanudo and noting that his game usually improves when he come.s to Florida, said he feels that smoothing out cleat marks should be includ'id among the housekeeping allowed on the green. "Why fix ball marks and not cleat marks?" Trevino asked heatedly. "Let's fix them all- or else let everybody play their putts where they lie." Gibby Gilbert held on to third place Friday with a 70-139 and insisted the fact he was an early starter Thursday when it was cold and a late starter Friday when there was occasional light rain cost him at least three strokes. Brewer, who ran into a siege of front-nine bogey trouble (four in five holes), was tied for fourth with PGA rookie Tom Kite (71); Al Geiberger (70); and Bruce Devlin (69). Jack Nicklaus, saying "at least I'm back in the tournament," started badly Friday but finished strong to po -'5t a 69142 where he was tied with John Miller (71), Curtis Sifford (fin) and Hale Irwin (69). Sam Snead, who will be Bl 1 years old in May, sliot a 69 Friday and was tied at one- under 143 with Art Wall, Doug Sanders, Jerry Heard and Ed Sneed. Arnold Palmer had a 71 ! Friday but that still left him one-over-par for the two rounds and nine strokes off Fezler'i pace.

NIAZM JMiAIN. Road Tesf Magazine has.namecl the rotary-engine Mazda "Import Car of the Year."... Again. This year's award went to a model that didn't ffl(ist last year: the RX -3 Station Wagon with Mazda's new automatic transmission. Why? Read Road Test's own words: "The trouble With some small wagons—domestic or import- is that their four-cylinder powerplants con barely pull them along at a respectable rate unloaded, let alone loaded. The Mazda rotary automatic has plenfy'^of power by contrast—zipping through the quar^r-mile :8ii 18.5 seconds." "Even at 1 ^6 mph, the Mazda rotary just hums along with uncanny smoothness where many cars sound like they're coming apartot the seams.** "The '73 RX -3 wagon pioneers in two significant new areas— in the mating of a rotary to an automatic and the use of the rotary engine in a more family-oriented vehicle." 'There is no skimping on materials. Much of thsengine^cmd the radiator, is aluminum. The olj lines are braided, like airaaf^ lines. An oil cooler and an electric fuel pump are standard— usually, you're lucky to get these features on $8000 sports cars.** Finally, says Road Tesf, Mazda is "covered by a transferable parts and service warranty on the rotary engine lasting two years or 24,000 miles, whichever comes first." * In summary, /?oad Tesf says, "If any one car represents the direction the auto industry can aim toward, it's Mazda." See it and drive it soon, * 2-year, 24,000-mile warranty covers engine block and internal parts to be free of defects, with normal use and maintenance, or Mazda will fix it free.
