Masters champ shoots 29 over first nine holes at Byron Nelson Classic By The Associated Press IRVING, Texas — Tiger Woods can shoot a 29 for nine holes and not even know it. Lee Rinker can shoot a 63 for 18 holes and no one else knows it. That just about sums up the difference between Woods and the mere mortals on the PGA Tour. Woods is playing on a different level, the others are playing to virtual indifference. A wildly appreciative gallery on the Cottonwood course cheered Woods' every move as he shot another 64 at the GTE Byron Nelson Classic on Friday, teasing the crowd with dreams of a 59 when he played the first 11 holes seven under par. "I went out in 29?" Woods said with genuine surprise when asked about his front nine score. "I had no idea." Rinker, meanwhile, couldn't have gotten a good poker game together with his gallery. He made a 50-foot putt, chipped in from 50 feet another time and finished with three consecutive birdies as he shot a 63 on the TPC course at the Four Seasons Resort. "What gallery?" Rinker replied when asked how many people followed his round. "I think the only people following us were family members." Woods and Rinker were at 12- under-par 128 after 36 holes, one stroke ahead of Mike Standly and two better than Paul Stankowski and Jim Furyk. • Tom Watson, a four-time winner of the Nelson, was in a group at 9-under 131. But the round that set everyone's heart racing was by Woods. He birdied four holes in a row starting at No. 2 — three times on putts of 12 feet or less — and picked up another birdie on No. 8 — on an 8-footer — to turn the par- 34 front nine in just 29 strokes, needing only 11 putts. "There is not a hole on either of these courses where par is a good score for him," Rinker, a non-winner in three years on the tour, said about Woods. "I'll be pumped playing with him tomorrow," Rinker said. "The adrenalin will be flowing. Maybe I'll be able to hit it within 50 yards of him." Birdies at Nos. 10 and 11 put Woods at seven under par for the day and meant he needed to play the final seven holes four under par to shoot a 59, a score achieved on the PGA Tour only twice — by Al Geiberger in 1977 and Chip Beck in 1991, both times on par-72 courses. "No, I never thought about it," Woods said about shooting 59. "When I shot 59 (in a casual round in Florida right before his record- setting victory in the Masters last month) I was 10 under through nine holes," he said with a sly smile. "There's a difference." But Woods, who really wasn't very sharp, played the last seven holes one over par as he failed to get his irons close to the cup. He needed as many putts on the final seven holes — 13 — as he used on the first 11, mostly because he was leaving himself 30-footers instead of 10-footers. "It's funny, coming in I felt pretty good about my swing," Woods said. "But it has been my putting that has carried me here — and my chipping." Woods is never satisfied. That is a big part,of his greatness. When he got a big lead at the Masters he wanted to break the tournament record of 17 under par. When he got to 18 under, he wanted to get to 20 under. "Obviously, this is a good position to be in," Woods said. "But I still have to drive the ball well with my 2-iron, 3-wood and driver." When a guy shoots 64-64 and is still tinkering, trying to get better, it sends a chill down the spine of the other players, and it mystifies The Associated Press Tiger Woods reacts to his birdie putt on the fourth hole in the second round of the Byron Nelson Classic Friday In Irving, Texas. those watching him. "What's he going to do, win every week?" one person in the gallery said to a companion as Woodu made yet another birdie putt on No. 8. LPGA: Stelnhauer leads event ROCKLAND, Del. — The weather once again was the main storyline at the LPGA Championship. This time, though, rain and lightning wasn't an issue. Playing in cool temperatures and a swirling wind that gusted up to 30 mph, Sherri Steinhauer blew past the competition with a par round of 71 Friday for a 3-under 139 total and a two-shot lead halfway through the 72-hole tournament. Leta Lindley, with a 69, was the only golfer to break par Friday on the windswept DuPont Country Club course. Lindley, Barb Mucha and Chris Johnson were at 141 and first-round leader and defending champion Laura Davies was alone in fifth at 142 despite shooting a 75. Annika Sorenstam, the leading money-winner on the tour, shot a 73 and was among four players at 143. That group included Kim Sai-., ki, who was 3-under with three holes left before closing with two bogeys and a double-bogey. : » Steinhauer, who hasn't won an," LPGA event since 1994, offset a double-bogey and three bogeys; with five birdies during a whirlwind round on the 6,386-yard course. Seniors: Archer leads by 4 CLIFTON, N.J. — George Archer took control of the $950,000 Cadillac NFL Classic on Friday by beating the wind for a change. What may stand in the way of his first title in two years and his,, first since a hip replacement 13 months ago are "the bolts of lightning." Archer took a major step in his comeback by shooting 5-under-par '•'., 67 in winds that gusted from 20-tq- 30 mph to take a four-shot lead, the' largest after the first round on the- Senior PGA Tour this year. Mike McCullough and Hugh Baiocchi were at 1-under par and were the only other players in the field of 78 to break par. CONNECTION Dmiion of USA, Inc. 1915 S.
