Watson wizards weather,
fires fabulous 68 for first

Never up,
never in
THIS OLD ADAGE still
trips off the tongues of
those golf commentators
who bring PGA golf to
American homes, (the golf-
ers say it a little bit differ-
ently), but Johnny Miller
was sure a little push
would help one of his birdie
putts at Medinah yesterday.
Miller's body english didn't
work however and he set-
tled for par on the way to
a 72 and a 147 after two,
weather - affected rounds
at the U. S. Open.

MEDINAH, Ill.-Tom Watson,
composed and confident he can
avert the collapse that cost him
this title a year ago, fashioned
a gritty, 68 and swept into a
three-stroke lead in yesterday's
weather-delayed second round
of the 75th U.S. Open Golf
Championship.
"I am more sure of myself
and my ability to handle the
pressure," said Watson, who
held the third-round lead then
blew this most coveted of all
the world's golf titles with a
horrendous 79 last season.
Yesterday afternoon, the dif-
ficult layout offered still an-
other terror-lightning.
"It's nothing to fool around
with," Watson said. "You're
talking about your life. I have
a lot more U.S. Opens to play
in, but I have only one life."
With that in mind, he invoked
the lightning rule and declined
to tee off at his appointed time.
He was questioned about the

decision by two U.S. Golf Asso-
ciation officials, including exec-
utive director P. J. Boatright in
a conference in the huge old
mosque of a clubhouse.
"They questioned whether the
lightning was close enough for
the rule to be invoked," Watson
said. "We talked about it and
they went out on the first tee
and ZAP, there it hit. Mr.
Boatright apologized to me
later."
Jack Nicklaus, the Masters
champion who so desperately
wants to win this one and keep
alive his improbable dream of
a one-year sweep of all the
world's major titles, could man-
age only a 70 and was seven
shots back at even-par 142.
The steamy heat got to
Arnold Palmer and he bog-
eyed five of six holes on the
front side before parring the
rest of the way for a 40-35-75
in the second round of the
U.S. Open.

A phone call. A simple,
ten-cent phone call for a cab
could save your friend's life.
If your friend has been
drinking too much, he shouldn't
be driving.
The automobile crash is
the number one cause of death
of people your age. And the
ironic thing is that the drunk
drivers responsible for killina
young people are most often
other young people.
Take a minute. Spend a
dime. Call a cab. That's all. If
you can't do that, drive him
yourself. Or let him sleep on
your couch.
We're not asking you to
be a doctor or a cop.Just a friend.
