Jack Nicklaus headed a group
of six players tied for the 'lead
but still seeking position on the
craggy cliffs of Pebble Beach
while Arnold Palmer moved into
position with a charging, birdig-
birdie finish yesterday in the
second round of the U.S. Open
Golf Championship.
The heavily - favored Nick-
Jaus, already the Masters cham-
pion and winner of more than
$156,000 this season, shrugged
off the effects of three consec-
utive bogeys in the home
stretch and finished with a 73
for 144.
That put him even with par
for two trips over the cool and
breezy Pebble Beach Golf
Links,' stretching for 6,812
yards through stands of gnarled
Monterey pines and flanked by
the churning whit surf of the
"Well, I'm still ,even par and
that's as good as anybody and
better than most" said Nick-
laus who seeks this prestigious,
title as the second step in his
quest for an unprecedented one-
year sweep of all the world's
major titles.
- "I just hope I got my bad
round out of my system," he
said after making bogeys on
the 14th through 16th holes in
the cool, breezy weather.
Nicklaus, who shared the
r first round lead with five oth-
ers, was tied at 144 after 36
holes with Australian veteran

rookie Danny Wadkins. longshot
Cesar Sanudo and a pair of for-
mer University -of Houston

players, Kermit Zarley and

this season with more than $50,-
000 in winnings, had a brilliant

nix Open earlier this year, had
11 one-putts on the tiny greens
as he and Crampton matched

American citizen who has yet
to win in four years on the
tour, used an old Lee Trevino
putter to record his 72. Zarley
had a 73.
"It's something of a relief,"
Palmer smiled after crisp iron
shots left him birdie putts of
four and six feet on the final
two holes as he delighted his
vast and faithful gallery with a
charge reminiscent of his domi-
nation of the game in the 1960s.
"It's probably the best round
I've played all year. Not the
best scoring round, but maybe
the best playing," said the 42-
year-old who hasn't won a ma-
jor titles since the 1964 Masters
and has been shut out of vic-
tories this season.
His b 1 a zi n g 68, matching
Wadkins' effort as the best in
this tournament, left him alone
at 145. He stormed past 49 play-

to fulfill one of his most che-

Nicklaus had it three under

ready to make a rout of it until
Pebble struck back.
"I felt I was playing better

then I got to No. 14," Nicklaus
The hard-hitting blond with

himself in the rough.
He hit an iron out, but got a

Trinity takes tennis title,
Bengal duo vie for crow
ATHENS, Ga. VP)-Trinity University aces Dick Stockton
and Bryan Gottfried defeated a pair of Stanford All-Americans
in the semifinals of the NCAA tennis championships Friday
and swept the Bengals to their first team title.
Stockton downed hard-serving Roscoe Tanner of Stanford,
7-5, 3-6, 6-7, 6-2, 6-4, in a match that lasted nearly three
In the other semifinals, the fourth-seeded Gottfried ousted
fifth-seeded Alex Mayer, 7-6, 6-1, 6-3.
The two Trinity players will meet for the singles champion-
ship at 10 a.m. Saturday.
The team victory by Trinity ended a UCLA-Southern
California domination that began in 1959. UCLA was the
defending champion.
Stockton fell behind 2-1 in sets, but after a 10-minute rest
the rangy senior ran out the final two sets. He broke Tanner's
service in the first game of the fourth set, broke again in the
next game and the Stanford junior never recovered.
Tanner's powerful serve made it difficult for Stockton in
the second and third sets. He repeatedly served aces, but he
could not sustain his power game in the last two sets.
Gottfried won the tie-breaking first set from Mayer and
swept the next two sets with ease. Meyer suffered a pulled
muscle in the first set and this slowed him the rest of the way.
Gottfried's victory eliminated Stanford from the team race.
Trinity was the 1971 NCAA team runnerup and shared
runnerup in 1970. The Bengals finished the 1972 season with
a 27-0 record.
