stroke back.
The bold and brassy Trevino,
who won this ancient crown a
year ago to complete an un-
precedented sweep of three na-
tional titles, had a 36-hole total-
of 141, one under par for the
6,892-yard Muirfield course, a
slumbering monster of the Scot-
tish Moors that awoke to snare
both Tony Jacklin and Doug
Sanders.
Jacklin. the brilliant and
breezy young Englishman who
won the British Open in 1969,
had to mount a courageous ral-
ly Irons a triple bogey six on
the 13th hole to salvage a 72
and a tie with Trevino for the
lead.
Sanders, a , greying, 38-year-
old American veteran striving
as hard to win his first major
championship as Nicklaus is to
get his 14th, blew a two-stroke
lead with a triple bogey seven
on the final hole.
Sanders finished with a 71
and was tied with the favored
Nicklaus and five others at 142.

- Dallas Cowboys Coach Tom
Landry said yesterday he wasn't
certain what the future held for
moody running back Duane
Thomas, who walked in and
out of the National Football
League champion's training
camp Wednesday night,
Thomas and Redic Price of
Dallas met with Landry for
about 20 minutes Wednesday
night.
Redic did most of the talking
at the brief meeting before
Thomas said "Let's go."
The Cowboy running star,
who is under a five-year pro-
bated sentence on a charge of
possession of marijuana. then
left camp.
Price was a wide receiver
prosject whom the Cowboys re-
jected after a brief workout
last Sunday.
Price told the Dallas Times
Herald yesterday he wouldn't
divulge the whereabouts of
Thomas and added, "Too don't
find out nothing about me.
don't try."
Terms of Thomas' probation
include permission from his
probation officer, Bill Haddock
of Greenville, to leave the state
of Texas.
Thomas is on the last year of
a three-year contract with the
Cowboys. He was expected to
renegotiate the last year of his
contract on the basis of his
outstanding performance last
season.

but lost the stroke when he bo-
geyed the next from a bunker.
As usual Trevino had an opin-
ion on why the remarkably
good weather - bright, sunny,
mild and with just a gentle
breeze - hadn't brought on a
flock of low scores.
"I think anytime you're pre-
paring for a golf championship
and you practice for rain and
wind and cold and then you get
weather like this, well, you just
don't know what to do. You're
still thinking rain and wind and
cold," he said.
Nicklaus, already the holder
of the Masters and U.S. Open

however, if somebody suddenly
breaks through and goes four
or five under then there are a
lot of guys at four or five un-
der. But if the first one doesn't
do it, then sometimes nobody
does it."
THE SITtATION is remark-
ably similar to those in the
third round of the Masters and
the second round of the U. S.
Open. Nicklaus played rela-
tively poorly, shooting 73 each
time. but nobody really took ad-
vantage of his lapses.
As it is, he shot one over par
here and still moved one stroke
closer to the lead.

JACK NICKLAUS blasts out of a tricky bunker on the 17th
hole and recovers nicely on his way to a second round score of
72 at Muirfield, Scotland yesterday. Nicklaus, in fine position to
make his second-half charge, entered the third round just one
stroke behind the leaders, who included Lee Trevino.
