Grouped at 207 were Beard, Terry Dill and Howard Twitty Jr. Beard and Dill shot 69s and Twitty, playing in his first PGA tournament, finished at 68. Blancas shot a 73 and finished at 210 while Snead soared to a 214 with a 77. "I drove the ball better today than the first two rounds," Eichelberger said. "That front nine plays tough. It was a little windy and 1 was a little shaky." Beard Cites Experience Beard, coming off a prolonged slump, said he believes his experience gives him some advantage in Sunday's final round. "The ball is moving in the right direction," he said. "I feel I can win the tournament if nobody gets in at eight or under." That was before Eichelberger, whose lead at one point dropped to one stroke because of his front-nine problems, came back strong. fircstone CAR SERVICE VALUES TO ................................. ·« ·-' J J Dunbar .................................. 000 000 1 -- 1 S 4 Langmaack and Scott; Mallett.

Carol Mann Still Making Birdie Putts COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - Carol Mann ran her two-day birdie total to 11 Saturday, shooting a two-under-par 70 that expanded her lead to three sstrokes in a $65,000 Ladies Professional Golf Association tournament. Miss Mann, who reeled off a tour-record seven straight birds Friday, posted a 36-hole total of 136, eight-under-par on the flat, 6,200-yard Riviera Country Club course. Jane Blalock, shaking a month-long slump, also fashioned a 70 and surged into second place at 139. Miss Mann said she wasn't trying for another run of birdies although she accomplished them on the 2nd, 4th, 9th and 12th holes. That more than offset bogeys at seven and eight. "I wanted to keep as much of a lead as I could," said the 6- foot-3 president of the LPGA. "I played a controlled, yet aggressive game. I'll take anything under those circumstances," she said.
