Only 20 of the 63 players who made the cut at 154 are at or below par on the gruelling 6,345-yard Canadian Golf Club course. One of the pre-tournament favorites, Sandra Haynie of Dallas, was forced to withdraw midway through the second round due to a persistent pain in her arm. Luc Brien, executive director of the Canadian LPGA, said, "Miss Haynie has had considerable pain in her arm for the past few weeks and It has been even worse this week so she has been allowed to withdraw." Mrs. Skala, 35, has only one major LPGA tournament win to her credit. In 1973 she won the George Washington Classic at Hidden Springs Country Club in Horsham, Pa. A violent thunderstorm interrupted Saturday's round and several golfers still out on the course had to take refuge. "We took shelter in a rain shed and a bolt of lightning came so close to as it wasn't funny," Mrs. Skala said. "Then and there I wanted to run home to my three kids. "The big difference for me on the tour now is that I'm using a tour caddy named Pepper and he made a difference of at least three or four shots improvement in my game." Miss Bourassa, the local favorite, said, "It was very windy and I had to use my short swing to attack the ball. I started like a lion but I had to change my game and I ran out of gas. "I did not adjust and I made a faux pas on the 14th hole when I used a nine iron by mistake. "However, I finished well with a birdie on the last hole and I'm inspired for tomorrow's game. I figure I should finish in the top ten." The winner of the tournament will pick up $12,000.

Broadway Wins NEW YORK (UPI) - North Broadway outsped a field of 10 fillies and mares Saturday at Aqueduct to score an easy win in the 16th running of the $58,650 Sheepshead Bay Handicap. CHICAGO (UPI)-A 16-mile per hour northwest wind turned playing conditions topsy turvy at Butler National Golf Club Saturday and Tom Weiskopf shot a par 71 in the $200,000 Western Open to cling to the lead after 54 holes with 212, one under par. None of the 78 survivors in the field could break par on the 7,002-yard, par 71 links and only three could equal it, Weiskopf, Joe Porter, who wound up with a 221, nine strokes behind, and J.C. Snead, who charged from a seven-way tie for 15th place into second. But he trailed Weiskopf by five strokes at 217. Most of.the day only one player was under par for the tournament, Weiskopf, who started one under and parred his first nine holes. He bogeyed the 10th to go even, but then blr- dled the next two to return to the under par red figures. Then a string of three straight bogeys put hfm over par until the 17th hole when he dropped a birdie putt to return to even. Then he confidently stroked home an eight-footer for a birdie on the 18th to go under par again. Weiskopf blamed his string of bogeys on bad club selection, hitting over the green on two of the holes and into the trees into an unplayable lie on the other. "I played very well the first nine holes, and I played the last three holes very, very well," he said. "I played the whole round very well except for a couple of club mistakes. I hit the ball solid and kept the ball in play. A 71 was a very good score out there today." Al Geiberger.even par for the first two rounds and trailing Weiskopf by only one stroke after 36 holes, fell far behind with aa 80, for a 222, nine over par. The five who trailed by two strokes after 36, Tom Evans, Larry Wise, Tom Watson, Bobby Mitchell and Gary Sanders, had similar problems. Evans, who set a course record with a second round 67, went five over par on his first three holes and wound up with a horrendous 83 for 226. Wise stayed in close contention for eight holes and then slipped toa 79 for 222. Watson shot a 75 for 218, Mitchell 80 for 223, and Sanders 79 for 222. "Par is pretty good here any time," Snead said. "I should have been two under but I blew the 16th and 17th holes with three putts. It was my best put- Standings ting round since I won at Philadelphia and It was fun for awhile. But I'm not driving very well. I know what I want to do, but when I get over the ball I'm chicken to do It. I don't have confidence and I just nurse It around." Frank Beard shot a 73 to tie Watson for thid place and Butch Baird with a 73 and Chuck Courtney with a 75 tied for fifth at 219. Arnold Palmer was in at 220 in a fourway tie while Lee Trevlno took an 81 to slip to 227. Mid-City, Central Win Mid-City all-stars beat R.L. Turner, and Central won from Cedar won from Cedar Grove on winners' bracket finals in the Bay County Little Major League baseball tournament here Saturday night. Mid-City took a 9-5 game and Central was a 15-2 victor. Both qualified for the district tournament starting July 8. The losers will get another chance to qualify by coming through the losers' bracket. . Allen Stanford hit two singles, Nat Brudnicki a double and single and Mike Worthington a sixth inning home run with one on for Mid-City, and Rey Segovia hit two singles for Turner. Craig Cosson and Ken Thomas added a single. Craig Malin hit two singles. Darryl Taylor hit a home run for Cedar Grove's only hit off Thomas, who struck out 14. With Weiskopf the only sub- par player for 54 holes, the chances looked good for the winner of the tournament to be over par for the third straight week. Weiskopf appeeared to be the only player with a chance to finish under par and par rounds could be as difficult or maybe more so Sunday, should the wind change.' The tournament will be onnational telision from 3 5 p.m. CDT Sunday and should there be a tie for first place money of $40,000, there will be a televised sudden death playoff.

Fisk was straddling the plate awaiting a throw from Mario Guerrero when Lee reached home. The throw sailed over Fisk's head as he went down in the collision. "It was a racehorse play," said Cleveland Manager Ken Aspromonte. "If the catcher gets the ball first, he's in a position and the runner takes he brunt of it. But if the runnner gets there first, he has the upper hand." Fisk missed the first several w. I.

U.S. Juniors Lead In Track AUSTIN, Tex. (UPI) - Petite Ekaturina Smirnova completed a Soviet sweep of the girls' pentathlon Saturday, but Americans pulled a double upset in the boys javelin and held onto a healthy team lead at the 3rd annual Russian- American Junior Track and Field Meet. Through 21 events, the United States led the Soviet Union 117104. Miss Smirnova, who blushed Upset Scored By Intrepid NEWPORT, R. I. (UPI) Intrepid, bidding for her third America's Cup, soundly defeated previously unbeaten Courageous Saturday in the final day of preliminary trials for yachting's most prestigious title. Managers of the two other American candidates, Mariner and Valiant, temporarily withdrew both 12-meter boats from competition for design changes in the stern. Intrepid, her wood hull apparently lighter and stiffer than the new aluminum Courageous, split tacks at the start. When the yachts came together again Intrepid was ahead by two boat lengths.

Sudden Death In Soccer Cup FRANKFURT, GERMANY (UPI) — Despite the efforts of its organizers, the world soccer cup has turned into a sudden- death tournament and Sunday's second round matches could eliminate four of the eight surviving tarns. But the other four teams know that victory in the second matches of the second final round will not bring them an automatic berth in the July 7 final. The new second-round system in which four teams in two groups play on a round-robin basis was intended to replace the knock-out method of quarter and semifinals. By chance, the opening second round matches have set up the old situation. Sunday's Group A matches see Holland, the favorite, in action against East Germany in Gelsenkirchen, while Brazil meets arch-rivals Argentina for the first time in a world cup final in Hannover. No matter what the results, Holland's July 3 match against the Brazilians will provide one of the finalists. The Pirates trailed 2-1 in the sixth when singles by Zisk and Manny Sanguillen and an intentional walk to Rennie Stennett loaded the bases with one out. Pinch-hitter Ed Kirkpatrick's sacrifice fly scored Zisk with the tying run and Reuss' single to deep short brought in the lead run. A single by Richie Hebner, a double by Al Oliver and an intentional walk o Willie Stargell loaded the bases again for Pittsburgh in the seventh and Zisk delivered a bases-clearing double to chase Lonborg. Mario Mendoza tripled home Saaguillen, who had singled, to give Pittsburgh a 1-0 lead in the second. But Dave Cash's triple and Larry Bowa's single tied it in the third before Mike Schmidt's 18th homer gave the Phils a 2-1 lead in the fourth. Cash hit his second homer of the year in the eighth and Bowa followed with a bunt single, but the Pirates pulled off theeir fourth double play to end the threat.
