Cosby, Long and Conley had 32 of Kentucky's 39 points in the second half. Long backed Cosby with 15 for the game and Conley netted 14.

Ford, who had knocked 10 strokes off Mount Pleasant's par in his first 36 holes, goes into Sunday's final round with a total of 207 to Bassler's 210. Bassler, the same 39 year age as Ford, had started the third ford eight shots behind. A trio of other golfers had been half a dozen back of Ford. Ford, a New Yorker since youth, could sink only one birdie and that was on the first hole with a 20-foot putt. At the fourth and fifth holes he ran into bogey 5s by three putting and missing the green. All the rest of ihe way Ford had to fight to even salvage pars in what he called a gruelling day. Four times he sank putts of 10 feet to avoid more bogeys. Meanwhile, the lanky Bassler was reeling off five birdies and only one bogey at the next to last hole. Bassler, a Maryland Open champ six times and five-time winner of the Middle Atlantic PGA, took only 31 putts. The only green he missed was the 201-yard 17th where he took his bogey 4. Bob Goalby of Perdido Bay, Fla., joined Bassler in taking advantage of Ford's fade, Goalby turned in a 67 for a 211 total to hold third place.

Ward held the lead until the 35th lap when he made a pit stop.
