Jaunty Jerry leads PGA.herd

By BOB HEUER
Special To The Daily
BIRMINGHAM - Twenty-
five year old Jerry Heard re-
lied upon a steady putter to
shoot an even par seventy and
take the second round lead as
the undulating dreams of Oak-
land Hills continued to keep
scores high at the 54th PGA
Championship.
Heard led by as much as three
shots on the front nine as he
dropped birdie putts at the par
five second and par four eighth
holes. He faltered slightly or the
backside, taking bogeys on 10
and 14 to drop back to one un-
der par for the tournament.
Former champion Ray Floyd,
Tribe's Tidrow

who finished the day one stroke
back at even par 141 actually
lead after he birdied three of
the first five holes, but Floyd
fell victim to bogeys at 6, 10, 12,
and 18 as he carded a 71.
Also a stroke back is Hale Ir-
win, who rode a hot putter to a
one under par 69. Irwin canned
birdie putts of 8, 15, 20 and 25
feet, and came back with 6, 7,
and 15 footers to save par.
Bracketed at one over par
141, two shots off the pace,
were Gay Brewer, Jim Jamieson,
and Bob E. Smith.
Brewer was tied for the lead
after 15 holes but blew himself
out of it with a double bogey
six at number 16. Brewer put
trips Lolich

. and Pattin two-hits orioles
From Wire Service Reports
CLEVELAND
THE CLEVELAND Indians continued their harassing of the,
leading teams in the American League East last night,
shutting out the Detroit Tigers and Mickey Lolich, 1-0, behind
the four-hit pitching of rookie Dick Tidrow-and Frank Duffy's
second major league home run.
The Indians have now taken ten of their last games
since the Al-Star Game and showed that were playing no
favorites by dumping Baltimore in five of seven meetings
this past week, before meeting the Tigers.
Lolich, who is now 18-7 and still tied with Cleveland's ace
Gaylord Perry, who goes against the Tigers today, for the
major league lead in victories, battled evenly until the seventh
with the Indian's right-hander.
The Tribe's light-hitting shortstop, Duffy, slammed Lolich's.
first pitch of the seventh frame into the left field seats avoiding
a stiff breeze blowing in off the former Lake Erie,
Tidrow, who has now won four games in a row and cap-
tured back-to-back 1-0, decisions recorded his third shutout of
the season and was never in serious trouble in evening his
record at 9-9. He retired Detroit's first ten batters, five of
them on strikes and also set down the Tigers' last seven hitters.,
But, once again the Tigers' loss did not diminish their
lead over Baltimore which likewise was shutout, by Boston's
Marty Pattin. So the Orioles still are, only two games back
of Detroit in the excuse-me division with New York and
Boston fast closing in.
The Red Sox victory, produced on Pattin's ninth win, a
two-hitter, and run scoring hits by Luis Aparicio and Rico Pe-
trocelli, brought the Boxsos to within 4%1 games of first al-
though their record is but two games above .500.,
CINCINNATI - Like a disc jockey's pipe dream, the hits
just keep on comin' for the Cincinnati Reds. Yesterday's batting
biggie was little Bobby Tolan, whose single, double, and homer
led the Reds to a sweep of the Atlanta Braves by scores of 3-2
and 6-5.
Tolan, of course, wasn't the only Red to damage the frail
pitching staff of the Braves. Pete Rose and Joe Morgan, the
Reds tough little lead-off tandem, helped too.
ST. LOUIS - Don "Frosty" Durham whose picture book
curve made him a prospect for the pitching thin St. Louis
Cardinals, found out last night that even a .230 hitter knows
where the ball is if you serve it down the middle.
The Philadelphia Phillies aided by Tommy Hutton's four
runs batted in and a six run eighth inning, swamped Frosty
and the St. Louis Cardinal by a whopping 8-3 score.
Durham was, of course, aided by the Cardinal bullpen
which more than pundit described as unable to put out a wet
match.
Sporting a batting average that was the complete oppo-
site of his earned run average, Frosty smacked his first major
league hit, a three run blast that carried all the way to Tulsa,
Durham'a next stop on the pitching trail.
Professional League Standings

his third shot in the water on
the picturesque 16th and chip-
ped to within eight feet after
the penalty to save his six.
Smith shot a sizzling 32 on
the back nine, coupled with a 37
to give him a one under par 69.
The big names continued to
have their problems in taming
the Monster. Jack Nicklaus and
Arnold Palmer each shot 75,
while Lee Trevino posted a 71.
Trevino and Palmer trail Heard
by five shots at four over par
144. Nicklaus is a distant eight
shots off the pace at seven over
par 147.
Nicklaus and Palmer were
vivid in describing their disap-
pointing play. "I'm disgusted,
just sick and tired of it," a dis-
traught Palmer told reporters.
"My putting and chipping game
is terrible."
Palmer took to the practice .
green after his round yester-
day in hopes of remedying a
stroke which produced no bir-
dies and an incredible 37 putts.
As for Nicklaus, the 32 year
old defending champion could
not remember a round this year
he.had played so badly. "Every-
thing I did was wrong. I had no
concentration all day -couldn't
sae my body do what my mind
wanted it to." Nicklaus drove
poorly and missed ten greens
with his approach shots.
The rarefied air at the top was
apparently too thin for first
round co-leaders Buddy Allin and
Stan Thirsk. Allin shot a 77 to
put him at 145, while Thirsk,
the Kansas City, Kansas club
pro, soared to a 12 over par 82.
Thirsk was the last player to
make the cut at 150.
South African Gary Player
duplicated his opening round 71
to share the fourth spot with
Lanny Watkins, Dan Sykes and
Tommy Aaron at 142. Player was
leading the tournament after 13
holes and needed only par to hold
it, but took bogeys 14, 15 and 18
to finish at one over.
Watkins, the 22 year old Wake
Forest graduate, recorded the
day's best score of 68 to go with
a first round 74.
When asked if he thought any-
one would break par for the
tournament a confident Ray
Floyd said that he would. "I feel
mentally and physically ready
and I'm playing too well not to
play par."
In direct contrast to Floyd's
tone Heard, when questioned
about strategy, replied, "I plan
to stay up and watch late
movies."

and friend of Batman, demonstrates the form that has catapulted
him to the second round lead of the PGA. Heard, who vowed to
watch late night movies, saw "Dimension 5" last night.

CHICAGO (P) - Mark Spitz
continued his pace of a record
a day and was joined by virtual
unknown Kurt Krumpholz yes-
terday in preliminary competi-
tion of the U.S. Olympic swim-
ming trials. .
Spitz, who set the world mark
of 2:01.53 in the 200-meter but-
terfly Wednesday and established
a record of 1:53.58 in the 200-
meter freestyle Thursday, smash-
ed his own world record of
:55.0 in the 100-meter butterfly
yesterday With a time of :54.68.
Krumpholz, who played with
UCLA's NCAA water polo cham-
pionship team, came in with a
stunning 4:00.11 in the 400-meter
men's freestyle and erased the
former world mark of 4:01.7 es-
tablished by Australian Brad
Cooper in February at Brisbane.
Krumpholz, who said, "I never

Gmeno gouges Smith

heard of Cooper before today,"
immediately was challenged by
John Kinsela, the 1970 Sullivan
Award winner from Indiana Uni-
versity, in the following heat.
Hinsella had better split times
-but faltered in the final 100
meters and finished with a 4:01.36
which also was better than
Cooper's record.
Krumpholz's splits were :58.6,
1:59.59 and 3:00.23 while Kin-
sell 's times were :56.74, 1:57.59
and 2:59.27.
Krumpholz, admitting his rec-
ord time was "nine seconds bet-
ter than I've ever done before,"
said he was "only dreaming" of
making the Olympic squad which
could become a reality by his
finishing in the top three of the
finals Friday night.
Another record effort was not
expected from Krumpholz Fri-
day night but he'll have to
come close to it to make the
trip to Munich. Aside from'in-
sella, he'll be facing such stal-
warts as Steven Genter, Lake-
wood, Calif., who already made
the team in the 200 - meter
freestyle and was timed in
4:01.94 in the 400-meter free-
style prelims.
In the women's division Shir-
ley Babashoff, a 15-year-old from
Mountain Valley, Calif., set a
world and American record in
the 200-meter freestyle, churn-
ing home in 2:05.21. Shirley al-
ready had earned an Olympic
berth by finishing second in the
finals of the 100 and 400-meter
freestyle events.
Her world record eclipsed the
mark of Shane Gould of Aus-
tralia who set it at 2:05.8 last
November. Miss Gould also held
the American record of 2:06.6.
Also winning Olympic berths
in the 200 meter freestyle were
Keena Rothhammer, Sunnyvale,
Calif., with 2:06.17 and Barbara
Marshall of Fort Lauderdale,
Fla., with 2:07.54.

BARCELONA, Spain (1P) -
Spain's Andres Gimeno, a bal-
ding 35-year-old veteran of the
pro tennis circuit, jolted the
United States' hopes of retain-
ing the Davis Cup by upsetting
Wimbledon champion Stan
Smith in the opening singles
match 6-8, 7-5, 6-3, 6-4 Friday.
Teen-ager Harold Solomon-vof
Silver Spring, Md., however,
revived the Americans' chances,
gaining a 9-7, 7-5, 0-6 lead over
another Spanish veteran Juan
Gisbert, before darkness halted
their match.
Solomon, 19, and Gisbert, 31,
will finish their match Satur-
day, before Smith and Erik
Van Dillen of San Mateo, Calif.
meet the Spanish doubles team
of Gisbert and Gimeno or Man-
uel Orantes.
Gimeno, a late replacement
for Orantes, who injured his el-
bow Thursday, used his court
savvy in stopping the favored
6-foot-4, 25-year-old Smith. He
seemed better suited to the 87-
degree temperature.
Playing carefully, he took ad-
vantage of Smith's numerous
errors and the American's er-
ratic service. He kept the pres-
sure on Smith, who was his
own worst enemy, double-fault-
ing 10 times, the last costing
him a game in the final set,
Smith's usually powerful serv-

ice deserted him, and could
prove to be the downfall of the
favored Americans.
Solomon and Gisbert battled
each other on the baselines
with the young American slam-
ming back drives to keep Giss-
bert from the net, his strength.
Both opened the match by
breaking each other'sservice.
In the first set, Gisbert had
four double faults, one per-
mitting Solomon to break serv-
ice in the 15th game,
In the second set, Gisbert
jumped to a 5-2 lead, but Solo-
mon rallied and won the next
five games. Gisbert recovered
quickly, however, and swept the
third set in 21 minutes against
the tiring youngster.
