"My wife put it on me this morning," said Fleischer who finished second to Dave Stockton. "She said something would come out of the pack and shoot a 64 or 65 to take it." And that's exactly what happened. Tour veteran Stockton fash ioned a seven-under-par 64 on the sultry day and roared froir four back to overtake a host of challengers, including the senti mental favorite, Sam Snead.

CAP) -Courageous, the new aluminun boat designed by Olin Stephens scored two impressive victorie over Valiant Sunday in obsei vation trials for 12-mplo yachts in the running to defend the America's Cup. Meanwhile, the Australian contender, Southern Cress, had 10 inches added to the length of her keel, a modification which is expected to improve her performance to windward, a point she has been of sail on which weak. W h a t W e n d y Fleisher ouldn't have predicted--or :ouldn't have wanted to--was lie dramatic final hole Sunday. Stockton was in with a 13-un- ler 271 total and former nalion- il amateur champion Fleisher :ame to No. 18 needing only a birdie to force a sudden death playoff for the $20,000 first rize. The 25-year-old third-year pro, who has yet to win on the .our. was on in two and needed :o get home in only two for a jirdie to force a deadlock. But ?leisher three-putted, rimming lis second shot from four feet and Stockton had his ninth career victory. "I've never been in a playoff. I looked forward to it and I anticipated it," Stockton said afterward. "I thought for sure the way he hits he would make birdie." Fleisher, who collected his biggest career paycheck, knew exactly what he had to dc coming to the 72nd hole. "I was only 40 feet away after two and I tried to lag it up there," he said. "I hit the hole with my first shot. I actually thought I had it, but it slipped by." "I had no excuse, I just missed it. I hate to use the word choke^I don't think I did--but I did feel the pressure." Snead, the 62-year-old legend, started the day in a tie at 203 with 25-year-old Hayes, but his balky putter failed him. "I hit 17 greens today and I could have hit it better from tee to green." said the winner of 84 tournaments dating back to 1936, but none since 1905. "But oh, this putter, that..." He didn't care to finish the phrase. "I had 37 putts today and there's no way you win with that total." His closing 72--one-over on the 6,000-yard Crew Valley Golf Club layout--earned him undisputed fourth at 275 and $4,700.

"Tulsa scored Avice in the fifth and once in ,he seventh to win 5-2. Fayelteville pitcher Brian Holt dueled Tujsa starter Kevin Hike to a 2-2 standoff through four innings, but he couldn't keep pace with reliever Greg Laplante in the sweltering heat. Laplante pitched perfect bal' over the last three, innings, striking out six, throwing oul ond and getting the other two on fly balls to left. Entering the game in unusua fashion as a pinch-hitter for Rike, Laplante also started the winning rally. He walked to lead off the fifth inning and scored the go-ahead run wher Holt walked Vic Harris with the jases loaded. Mickey Robertson made the score 4-2 with a sacri 'ice fly. Tulsa added an insurance run n the seventh when Duam Meyers singled, stole second raced to third on a passed bal and scored on a wild pitch Meyers' base hit was one o only five given up by Holt i the game. College Club managed jus the first, but was stranded, the second, Mark Prenger ingled and Holt doubled. BOTH SCORE TWO Each team scored twice in lie second.

Second baseman Randy Porter irevented further damage by snothering Brian West's short- lop smash with two out and runners at second and third. Bob Stephens started the Fayetteville rally with a one-out walk. When Prenger's base hit was misplayed in left field, Ste- ihens scored from first base. Prengcr' advanced to third on a ground ball by Rick Taylor and scored on Holt's bad-hop double past center fielder Meyers. Solid defensive play by both :eams highlighted the third and "ourth innings. Fayetteville center fielder Shelby Sizemore robbed Bewley with a great running catch in the top of the third, and Meyers made a similar play on Davis' drive in the bottom of the inning. In the fourth, Porter bare-handed bad hop to throw out Alan pick-up of a low throw at first base to retire Stephens. Holt, now 7-2, struck out four batters, walked four and hit one.

The dispute between the National Football League Players' Association and the NFL Management Council is now in its third week, and the two sides do not appear to be any closer together today than when the strike officially started July 1. Mo progress in negotiations has been announced, and the two sides have not as much as agreed on a date for resuming talks. The College All-Star Game, the annual summer fixture run by the Chicago Tribune Chari- lies, was canceled due to the dispute, and the next casualty could he the July 27 Hall o Fame Game in Canton, Ohio, which kicks off the exhibition season. But most importantly, NFL league's star players -- appear to be quite solid in holding the union line. All around the country, as training camps open, NPLPA picket lines are being set up. And for the most part, the veterans are honoring those lines. Alter meeting with both sides last Friday, federal mediator - James Scearce said he woulc contact them again early this week to see if they want to re. sume negotiating. A number of training camps opened to veterans Sunday, but few players with NFL ex- perience showed up-- except to . picket.
