Nicklaus, Watson- pace field

By The Asociated Press
TURtNBERRY, Scotland - A
pair of madgnificent 65s, corn-
n))""d by Jack Nicklaus and
Tim t1ison in one of golf's
?!d trilling duels, left the
Itiihopen championship in
a t e andc set up a classic show-
down fo)r today's final round.
Ir as fun," Nicklaus, the
creaking of world golf, said
fhfierce, .tense, nerve-
tA 'kiflit match with the re-
.ntle Watson yesterday.
mo.'IFNTS LATER Watson,
the ;(┬░tt apparent to Jack's
ran h eco ed in the exact
'Ilt aIs fan."
~I ic>trying to make it a
0n1 tttatt toarnament," Nicklaus
isTon was trying to make
i ta row-an tournament. And

we made it a two-man twlirna-
mnent.
It set up a rematch of their
spectacular a I r a g g 1 e in the
Masters. Watson won that one.
THERE ARE two dift' rences.
This time, as they were on this
gloomy, rainy, stornsy Friday,
they'll be paired together. In
Augusa, Ga., they were not in
the same group.
"And this. time I'm not start-
ing out the last round a couple
of strokes back," Nicklaus point-
edt ot.
Watson just smiled.
Nicklaus was asked if the
challenge is greater since it
comes 'from Watson, the man
who is threatening his long-
time supremnacy.
"THIERE'S ALWAYS a chal-
leage," Nicklaus said. And then

he ticked thsem off:
{There was Palmer and Play-
er and Trevino and Weiskopf
and Miller.
'There's always a challenge.
'That's what it's all about"
Watson smiled.
He'd just matched strokes
with the greatest player the
world has known, the man who
says he's now in his golfing
prime, and emerged with a mer-
ciless stand-off, dead even.
IN THlE END, they had to
settle with matching scores of
203, seven under par for three
onds over Turnberry's tem-
peramental Ailes course, stretch-
ing 6,875 yards along the Ayr-
shire coast.
It is not, howeever, completely
a Itwo-man show. Ben Cren-
show's in there, too. Gentle Ben
finished birdie-birdie for a 66
that left him a 206, three strokes
back.
"I JUST DON'T know bow
many birdies those guys have
got left," Crenshaw said. "I
think you know what winning
this tournament would mean to
me, sos I won't dwell on it."
Only three other men were
under par figures and, at 209,
they trailed the intimidating
Nicklaus and the unawed Wat-
son by sax big shotu.
This game keeps
going in
any weather.
