Ronnie Hulchinson at Little Rock was close behind with a 9, and C. W. Knauls of Piggott shot 71. Five players, including )ane Harris and Sug Wilson of Hot Springs and Scott Seller of v ayetteville, shot 72. The 72-hole stroke play event ontinues through Sunday o'l he par-70 Hardscrabhlc Coun- ry Club course. A field of 143 golfers will be divided into lights after today's play. ' Harris, who works until 3 p.m. most days for a railroad company, said of his round, 'There were a lot of good shots, mixed with a lot of good icrambling. I had to get up and down six times. I played j'jst is conservatively as 1 know low. starting with the idea of trying to par each hole." He almost did, coming up short only on the 10th hole where he missed the green and a five-loot putt. He birdied the par-three second hole from four feet and the par-five third by reaching Ihe green in two. Harris also birdied the llth from one foot, and nearly added a birdie at the 12th. ONE OF HIS BEST 'For no more lhan I've been able to practice lately, I'.n quite pleased." he said. "This was one of the very best rounds of tournament golf I've ever shot." He said he expected the w i n n i n g score to IK between 280 and 285. Of the Fayettci'ille entries, Bob White was runner-up lo Seller with a 71 John Allison and Jim McCord folowcd at 75. while Thomas McNair and Hill Dick McNair each shot 70. Bill Brown carded a 78, David Vandergriff and Olhel Sharp shot 79 each and Bob Renner had an 80. At 81 were Bo Baumeis- tcr, Frank Broyles and Gordon Norwood. Bill Dick McNair would have been among the leaders but for mishaps on two holes. He four- putted the par-four 10th hole for a double-bogey, and dunked two balls into the water on the pav- threc 17th for a quadrupfe- bogey. By contrast, Thomas McNair salvaged his round with birdies at the 16lh and 17th, making putts ot 40 and eight feet. He opened with a two-over-par 37 on the front nine, but went bogey Â· bogey Â· triple - bogey- on holes 10 through 13. Brown, who was widely publicized for breaking his elubs at the Southwest Conference tournament in April, didn't play Tor six wcesk afler that. When hi did play again, his first shot was a perfect drive off number 10 at Paradise Valley in Fay- cltcville. "See?" he said, "It's great game, and from now on, I'm going to enjoy it.' BOBBY JONES MODEL Thursday, Brown showed up at Hardscrabhle with a Bobby Jones-vintage putter. "On fast greens, I do as well with this as anything else," he said. Thomas McNair took one look at the putter and said, "Bobby Jones must have been a great player if he used that thing." Later. McNair watched as Brown three-putted the par-five sixth hole for a double-bogey. Sharp made two predictions before the day's play began, and missed on both. "I think someone will shoot 66 or 67," he said "and I think it will be Thnmas McNair." Sharp also said, "I'd like to shoot about a 70." He missed by nine strokes. Broyles was one under par through seven holes and even through eight, but suffered back-to back triple-bogeys on the next two holes. One of his playing partners, three-time winner Tommy Stobaugh, had a 76 with a quadruple-bogey eight on the par-four 14th hole. STILL NERVOUS On the first tee, Stobaugh had said, "I'm as nervous as if I'd never played in one of these things." Nerve damage in his shoulder sidelined the Morril f .on golfer for two years, and he didn't know if he'd ever play again. "I'm just thankful to be out here." he said. Baumcister's 81 could have been even worse, but for some great scrambling by the competitive U of A golfer. He con- t i n u a l l y put himself in trouble by driving the ball over fences artd into trees, but just as consistently got the ball up and down from traps and hillsides. Kelly Kirkpatrick, a Univer-i sity of Texas sophomore fronr Fort Smith, opened with a 73. At the I0th green, however, he faced a five-foot putt for a bogey to keep from going six over par. "if I can just make this and then use the experience I'm supposed to hove gotten *l Texas, I'll be all right," he said. He did, and he was.
