(UPl) —Two "havenots" were the pace setters for golfs big stars today with Rod Funseth and Butch Baird nursing a one stroke lead heading into the second round of the $125,000 Buick Open at Warwick Hills. Funseth has earned only S13,168 in 20 tournaments this year, not enough to make the top 60 in earnings on the pro tour, and Baird has earned only S4,080. Each has scored only one tournament victory on the tour, Funseth in six years of trying and Baird in eight. But, Thursday they solved the tough par 72-\Varwick course, 7,001 yards long, with four under par 68s while the better known and more affluent players were battling to get close. "Normally I don't play this course very well," Funseth said, "and I had very little confidence when I started. But I started putting well, my driving improved. I improved with my irons and everything came together." Funseth played early in the day and holed out a 35-foot explosion shot from a trap for one birdie while knocking in putts of 25 and 20-feet for two others. Baird, playing after the greens were chopped up wth spike marks, said the putting surfaces were "bumpy" but he laughed about the problem. "When you hit it right" he said, 'it goes over the bump and in. But if you miss, you blame the bump. 1 putted okay. I didn't feci real good about it, but I made them." He canned one birdie putt of 25-feet and others of 11 and 18- feet while posting nine, one putt WINS AGAIN — Cole Yarborough and his wife, Betty Sue, flash big smiles after Cal« eop- tured the Daytono Firecracker 400 for the second time.

Eagles. The National Football League club Thursday announced that Young has signed a contract for the coming season. He received All-America honors after helping the Trojans win the national championship last fall. He was the Eagles' No. 3 draft choice. This pushed his year's winning to $96,781. with the racing season only half over. The record for money winnings in a single season is held by Richard Petty of Randleman, N.C., set last season at 5127,000. Yarborough still has four "superspeedway" races in which to pick up money, plus numerous smaller races. The four big races left are the Darlington 500, the Charlotte 500, the Di.xie 500 at Atlanta, and the Rockingham, N.C., 500. These four races alone will provide about 552,000 to the first place finishers. Thursday's victory was the tliird straight for Yarborough here in a major race and he I made it look easy.
