Taber and Chadwell Close in on Gary I llvMdts Page Gary Gruenemeier was still the man to beat for the Lincoln City Golf title, but he had a long hard day at Hillcrest Thursday. Seeking his 3rd successive crown, Gruenemeier soared to a 79 in the semifinal round for a total of 220.

But he still held a two- stroke lead over Matt Taber, ho managed to chop the gap by one stroke with a 78 and a total of 222. Zooming into the picture with a par performance was Results Page 14 veteran and former champ Gene Chadwell. His 72 brought a 3-round total of 225. Flrv Peterson shot a 75 to gain a 3rd place tie with Chadwell. Lew Sheary is 5th with 226.

Thursday was somewhat of a nightmare. Dawn rains forced a delay in starting the tourney and some slogging lower flighters frequently jammed the Hillcrest course. The Gruenemeier-Taber- Sheary threesome tee off until after 3 p.m., and they had to wait another hour before playing the second hole. They struggled home in near darkness, shortly after 8 p.m. Both Gruenemeier and Taber had good fortune and bad, but it was a spectacular approach shot on 16 that kept Gary in the seat.

Taller went in front for the first time in the tourney on No. 13 when Gary took a double bogey, but the defending champion evened it up on 15 when was stuck with a bogey. Gruenemeier potted his duece on 16 by chipping from the lower portion of a bunker on the left side of the green. His shot rattled the pin, then dropped, and when Taber wound up with a bogey 4, Gary was again in command. The two leaders see.sawed all day and both were in trouble on several occasions.

I Taber pulled within stroke after two holes, then; dropped 4 strokes behind on the next two, bogeying 3 and I taking a double bogey on 4. Matt birdied No. 7 while Gary sailed into a tree and, faced with an unplayable lie, chose to drop out and take a two-stroke penalty. That evened things up, but Taber bogied 9 and 10, while Gary bogied 12 and then took a 6 on 13 to tie up the leadership again. 72 was the best round of the day and came when winds and delays were bothering most of the field.

Taber, by the way, had good reason to be a bit edgy. In addition to the late start, the delays and some bad luck, he became a father for the second time just prior to his tee-off time. Mrs. Taber, who a rushed to the hospital at 6 a.m., presented Matt with a 9 pound, 1 ounce girl, the second daughter. 1 Taber and Peterson teed off 1:18 p.m.
