Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - November 2, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa 70 The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sat.. Nov. 2. 1974 Shoot 60 for Team Golf Tie LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) Joe Porter, the talka- tive character whose loqua- cious manner has won him the wry nickname "Silent Joe." considered the situation for a moment then summarized: "We're both pretty mar- ginal players. But wlen we get together we manage to play pretty good." It ranked as a massive understatement. Porter, a career struggler who has quit the pro golf tour in August three times, and partner Bob Zender, another non-winner, had just com- bined for an incredible 00, 12 under par on the Magnolia course at Walt Disney World, and had taken a share of the second round lead Friday in the Na- tional team championship. They were tied in this competition in which scoring is based on the better ball of each two-man team with vet- erans Gibby Gilbert and Bobby Mitchell, who had to birdie six of their last seven holes to match the Zender- Porter two-round total of 124, a whopping 20 under par for holes. Mitchell and Gilbert had a second-round 61 in the warm, sunny weather. A couple of skinny guys from Santa Barbara, Calif., Al Geiberger and Buddy Allin, were just one shot back with a 62-125. The Lee Elder-Bob Murphy and Bert Yancey-Ed Sneed teams followed at 126. Yancey-Sneed had a second- round 62, Elder-Murphy 63.

Delighted Arnold Palmer and partner Lanny Wadkins improved to a 63-130. "It's the most solid round I've played in five the 45-year-old Palmer enthused. Jack Nicklaus and Tom Weiskopf, the pre-tourney favorites, had a 64 and were seven shots out of the lead at 131. Record-setter Johnny Miller, winner of eight tourna- ments this season, and Grier Jones also had a 64 and were at 132. Porter and the hard-hitting Zender had a round that bordered on the unbelievable. It could have been a sub-60 but for a bogey on the fifth hole, where they both missed the green. They played the four par- five holes six under par. Each scored an eagle three. They one-putted 10 times, seven times from 20 feet or more. Porter holed four putts in the 20-foot range, another from feet and holed out a 25-30 foot shot from a sand trap. Neither has ever had an exemption from qualifying. Both have struggled thcli en- tire careers. Zender's best finish this season was third in the Milwaukee Open. Porter hasn't finished that high. But their inspired effort forced the veterans Gilbert and Mitchell to birdie six of their last seven holes to gain a share of the lead halfway through this chase for a 000 first prize.
