(AP) - Al Geiberger had to fight off a letdown and a growing sense of panic to rally past Dave Stockton Sunday and win the Tournament Players golf championship. "It's a funny sensation," Geiberger said. "Leading all the way like I did, there's so much pressure on you. When I finally lost the lead, it was like the monkey was off my back. I felt a tremendous letdown. "There's been a lot of^bther tournaments when something like that would happen, and I'd panic. I wouldn't be as bad off as I thought I was, and I'd panic and do something foolish. "Fortunately, I was able to kind of pull myself together. I kept my head and just kept my mind on what I was doing." That was on the ninth hole. He'd just blown a four-stroke edge and Stockton had taken the lead for the first time. But Geiberger pulled^his^ game together and overhauled his scrambling friend with a one-under-par 69, winning bythree strokes with history's finest score here. 'Played Best Ever' "tt v s the best I've ever played," said Geiberger, who had won seven previous tournaments in a 16-year pro career. "I had every break possible, and I couldn't handle him," Stockton said. "Alan made no mistakes.- white..I was-making-some. Very few people could have done as well under the pressure as Alan did. "I just can't believe he played four rounds that well. I just can't believe it." Geiberger's round, which featured five birdies and four bogeys —gave him a 270 total, 10 under par and a record on the 7,190-yard Colonial Country Club course. Break* Heafner Mark His total broke the 72-hole mark of 272 set by Clayton Heafner in the 1948 Colonial National Invitation tourney when the course played much easier. Stockton couldn't match Geiberger's fast finish, ending at 69-273. Green Finishes 3rd Hubert Green,. second Jn last week's Hartford Open, was the only other golfer under par for the tournament, finishing at 69—275. Tying for fourth at 281, 11 strokes back, were Mason Rudolph (70), Bob Dickson (73) and Bob Murphy (68).' Jack Nicklaus finished 1 with a 75-286 in this $250,000 event, a "designated" tournament in which all leading players are required to compete. South African Gary Player, Lee Trevino and Tom Weiskopf all had finishing 73s. Player closed his American season with a 288, Weiskpof, had a 289 and Trevino 293. Stockton Closes Geiberger, 37, JwlwL won the Tournament of Champions earlier this year, had a three- stroke lead when .the day's play started and built the margin to four with birdies on two of his first three holes. But he bogeyed three of four starting on the fifth hole and Stockton closed the gap, tying on No. 8 and taking the lead with a birdie on the ninth: '— Geiberger, playing one hole GOLF Please turn to Page Three T l!

Pana. tBBSO 1 8 i! 0° 0° By ED MATTJX Roger Dolan, hounded steadily by Ed Sanger, won the International Motor Contest Association sanctioned late model stock car feature 'race Sunday at the Iowa State Fairgrounds. Dolan, of Lisbon, took the lead on lap nine of the 60-lap event and drove a strategic race in holding off Sanger of Waterloo before an estimated crowd of 4,500. Sanger. put his 1974 Camaro into second place on lap 17 and passed Dolan's 1974 Chevelle on lap 37, only to have the position change negated by a caution flag. Sanger believed he tipped his land in his aborted attempt to take the lead coming off the second turn. "When they canceled where I passed him with the yellow flag he knew where I'd try to pass," Sanger said. "After that, he drove higher in the turn." Sanger made one other attempt on the final lap to pass Dolan but that also failed. Tagged Tail "On the last lap, Collier (t h i r d-place finisher Ferris) tagged my tail and set the car off a little," Sanger explained. Dolan won $1,000 for capturing the IMCA race in his first attempt. The top three cars Battled the final 24 laps, but Dolan said he ran only fast enough to win. "I didn't want to burn the lires off in the corners," said Dolan, who finished second to Sanger in Saturday's program "I just had enough to hold him (Sanger) off." -Sanger was the fastes around the half-mile oval during time trials in : 26.61 seconds and won $650 for his runner-up finish. Collier collected $475 for third. Dan Dickey of Packwood was fourth, followed by Jim Hager of Liberty, Mo., Dave Chase of Council Bluffs and Stan Stover of Reinbeck.

(AP) - Call him Lucky Ed Halicki, if you like. That's th« way the San Francisco right- hander referred to himself Sunday after pitching the National League's first no-hitter in more than two years. "I've got to think a no-hitter has got to be luck," said Halicki, 24, after baffling the New York Mets, 6-0, in the second game of a doubleheader. "If it were a case of skill, guys like Tom Seaver, Bob Gibson, Sandy Koufax and'Nolan Ryan would have about 20 no-hitters." New York won the opener, 95, as former Giant Dave Kingman unloaded a single, double and grand-slam homer. The closest the Mets came to hit off Halicki was Rusty Staub's smash back through the box to start the fifth inning after the 6-foot 7-inch, 220- Jound New Jerseyan had breezed through the first 12 ratters. Deflected Ball Halicki said the ball deflected off the back of his leg as he fell off the mound toward the first base line. It caromed to the ight of second base, where Oerrel Thomas tried for a lack-hand pickup but couldn't handle it. The official scorer ruled it an error. "That's why I say there's a ot of luck involved in a no- hitter," said Halicki, who is in lis first full season in the ma- ors. "That ball was going up he middle for sure. It definite- y would have been a hit. But Ed Hallcld Nothing but Luck Ve often heard it said that official scorers like the first hit o be a really clean one." Staub wasn't about to deny lalicki his moment of glory. Good Stuff "you've got to give him all he credit," the Mets' clean-up litter said. "He had real good tuff and he was getting his peaking ball over. When he gets his breaking ball over he's eally effective because you've till got to look for his heat fastball)." "1 went mostly with fastballs nd sliders," said Halicki, who drew 122 pitches, only 35 of vhich were balls.
