Two tie or Open lead

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. (AP) -
Bruce Devlin, a 44-year-old veteran
who hasn't won in 10 years, crafted a 2-
under-par 70 and tied Bill Rogers for
the early first-round lead yesterday in
the 82nd United States Open golf cham-
pionship.
Devlin, who now spends most of him
time as a television commentator and
golf course architect, grabbed a share
of the top spot with birdies on the 15th
and 16th holes, two of the more deman-

ding on the difficult back nine.
"SORT OF playing from memory,"
said Devlin, who said he has played
"only five or six tournaments this year
and just played miserably.'
The veteran refused to accept an on-
the-spot ruling on the 14th hole, called
for an official from the sponsoring U.S.
Golf Association and got relief from
earth that had been heaped up when a
stake was removed.
The relief enabled him to play a deft

little chip to within 6 inches and a
scrambling par. He followed with bir-
dies from 12 and 6 feet on the next two
holes, then one-putted for par on the
18th, retaining a share of the top spot.
ROGERS, IN a year-long slump, got
his piece of the lead with a closing
string of nine consecutive pars.
Jack Nicklaus, meanwhile, fell vic-
tim to the putting problems that have
troubled him most of the season and
opened his attempt at a record fifth
American national championship with
a 2-over-par 74.
"Generally speaking," said Nicklaus,
now 42 and the holder of a record 17
major professional titles, "I played a
lot better than I scored. I didn't get the
ball in the hole very well. The wind fac-
tor made it a very difficult day to play
golf. It was the kind of day when you
had to make some putts. And I didn't do
it.
"I didn't take advantage of the way I
played."
NICKLAUS, generally considered the
finest player the game has produced,
played the front 1-under and missed
twice from eight feet or less.
Those little failures were a hint of
thingsto come.Although he has won on-
ce and finished second in two other
tournaments this season, he has ex-
perienced near-constant frustration
with his putter. And that frustration
continued.
He 3-putted from 35 feet on the 11th
hole-"and that really turned my round

the other way," he said-three-putted
again on the 12th and bogeyed the 16th,
missing the green.
ROGERS, however, had no such
troubles. He once made a 50-footer,
from the front of the green, to save par,
and, in his decisive closing string of
pars, one-putted four times.
"There was a little bit of scrambling,
but I played pretty good, too.
"I've been struggling," said Rogers,
who hasn't even had a serious challenge
for title this season.
"I FULLY expected to come back\
like gang-busters," said the lean
Texan, who won the British Open, three
American tournaments and a total of
seven international crowns as the best
player in golf in 1981.
"It hasn't happened. And it hasn't
been any fun. But," he said, "you have
to live through these things.
"I can't say I came here expecting to
play well. I haven't played well all
year. But this is a good time and a good
place to do it. Sometimes a major
championship will do it to you.
"Maybe this is the week." With about
half the international field of 153 still
out on the spectacularly beautiful Peb-
ble Beach Golf Links, Rogers held a
one-stroke lead over Cal Peete, Danny
Edwards, Bobby Clampett and Jim
King, a former tourist and now a Miami
club pro. They were tied at 71.
Former champion Andy North was
alone at par 72.

Jaeger drops out of
pre-W edon mateb

EASTBOURNE, England (AP)-
Andrea Jaeger became the most impor-
tant pre-Wimbledon casualty yesterday
when she had to pull out of the BMW
Women's Grass Courts tennis tour-
nament at Eastbourne with a groin in-
jury.
Jaeger, who was due to meet Bettina
Bunge, a transplanted West German
who now lives in Miami, for a place
in the semifinals, did not go onto the
court. Instead; she went to a local doc-
tor, who said that it was unlikely the 17-
year-old would miss Wimbledon.
SINCE THE fourth-seeded Jaeger
has a first-round bye, she will not have
to play until next Wednesday at the
earliest, but she will miss several days
of practice.
Her defection, let Bunge go on to the
semifinals against the talented but
erratic Hana Mandlikova of
Czechoslovakia.
In yesterdays quarterifnals, Man-
dlikova outclassed 18-year-old
American ZinaGarrison 6-1, 6-3.
TOP-SEEDED Martina Navratilova
beat Barbara Potter 6-3, 6-3 and
Britain's Jo Dune defeated Betty Stove
of the Netherlands 0-6, 6-3, 6-0 in the
other quarterfinals.
Mandlikova played fine, aggressive
tennis and limited Garrison's scoring
chances severely. Garrison was badly
rattled by losing the first four games.

Although she rallied in the second set
and kept the match alive at three-
all, she managed only a point a game
for the remaining three.
Navatilova, now ranked No. 1 in the
world, had no trouble extending her
remarkable 1982 singles record, which
includes only one defeat. Her serve was
so awesome that Potter did not manage
to get to deuce once on her opponent's
delivery. The Czech expatriate drop-
ped only five points in nine service
games, none in the second set.
