Kite, Lister grab Phily golf lead

By The Associated Press

By The Associated Press
PHI LADELPHIA-
Tom Kite, happily and enthu-
siastically defending the only
title he's ever won, scrambled
his way to a hard-won, rallying,
two under par 69 and a tie with
New Zealand's John Lister for
the second round lead yester-
day in the $200,000 Philadelphia
Golf Classic.
"Oh, what a day," Kite sig-
hed after his erratic effort that
included four bogeys - one of
them a one putt - six birdies
and only eight pars.
"It may sound funny, but
that's the kind of round you
sometimes have when you're
playing good," Kite analyz-
ed. "I turned an over-par
round into a fairly decent
one and almost a good one."
A bogey on the 18th-which
cost him the lead alone-kept
it from being a good one, he
said. Ie missed the green from
a flying lie and dropped hack

into a tie with Lister at 135,
seven under par for two trips
over the tight little 6,687 yard
Whitemarsh Country C 1 u b
course.
Lister, in his seventh full
year of tour activity, putted his
way into contention with a six
under par 65, the best round of
the mild, hazy day. Lister
holed five putts in the 12-15 foot
range and dropped another
from about 40 feet.
"I missed a couple of short
ones," he said, "but, over-
all, you'd have to say I made
everything I should have -
and then some."
Slender Danny Edwards, a
winner at Greensboro earlier
this year, had a second round
69 and was one stroke back of
the leaders at 136.,
Mike Hill, who spiced his
round of 69 with an eagle two
on the 13th hole, and big J. C.

Terry Diehl, the first round
leader and the man Kite beat
in a playoff for the title here
a year ago, slipped to a 73
and was in a large group at
138, three strokes off the
pace.
"I was mentlflly off, playing
like a zombie," Diehl said.
The others at 138, and their
second round scores, included
Bob Murphy, with 66 and 30 on
his back nine; rookie Brady
Miller, 67; Jerry McGee, 68;
Grier Jones and Victor Rega-
lado, 69; Bob Gilder, 70; and

The curly haired Kite, who
has played both his amateur
and professional career in the
shadow of Ben Crenshaw, his
teammate, at the University
of Texas, bogeyed the sitth
hole after missing the green
then hit one into an unplay-
able lie on the seventh and
had to hole a six-footer for
bogey.
lHe missed the green but
managed to save par on the
eighth, then started his birdie

feet on the next two holes.

to keep myself in the ball
game," he said.
He did a little better than
that. lie had sole control of the
top spot until his drive trickled
into the rough on the 18th and
his approach came out hot and
