Player's lead appeared to be
solid although there still were
golfers on the course including
Peter Dswson of Britain, who
scored an eagle three at the
tixth hole, to go even par after
24, and Liang Huan of Taiwan,
who also was even after 24
holes after a birdie at No. 6.
Johnny Miller, the leading
money winner on the U.S. tour
who had a 72 Wednesday, made
a charge on the front nine,
shooting a three-under-par 32
to go three for the tournament
for 27 holes.
However, Miller bogeyed the
10th and 11th holes and took a
triple bogey six at No. 12. He
suffered two more bogeys and
a double bogey and finished with
a 43 for a 75 and 147.
Rookie pro Danny Edwards
of Edmond. Oklahoma, who shot
a 70 in the first round, stayed in
contention by shaking off a
triple bogey eight on the sixth
to finish with a creditable 73 on
the 6,822-yard Royal Lytham
and St. Anne's Club course for
a 143, six strokes behind Player.
A stroke back at 144 was
John Morgan of Britain, who
shot a 75 after tying Player for
the first-round lead with a 69.
Defending champion To m
Weiskopf also was at 144 after
a second straight 72 while Bobby
Cole of South Africa and Peter
Oosterhuis of Britain were five
strokes off the pace at 142. Cole
shot a 72 and Oosterhuis a 71.
American Hubert Green was
at 145 after faltering on the
closing holes for a 74. Neil Coles
of Britain also shot a 74 and was

tastic golf and he was lucky to
get an early start today," Nick-
laus said of Player who was
among the first to tee off.
Player called his performance
"the best golf I'm capable of
playing."
The South African, the reign-
ing Masters champion and twice
winner of this tournament, bir-
died the first, fifth, sixth, 13th
and 18th holes. His birdies on
the first and fifth came on 25-
foot putts, and the birdie on the
final hole came after he hit a
