Ahead of him, Joe Irwin Falls One Behind At Colonia FOHT WORTH, Texas (AF)— A trio of superstars moved into contention, but it was a self-styled scrambler, a Wintu Jn-jdian and a former football player who led the way today I into the third round of the $250,-1 OOO Colonial National Open. “Even Hen Hogan can’t hit all the greens on this course— you’ve got to be able to chip it! close and make the putts,” theorized Chuck Courtney, recognized as one of the tour’s top scramblers, “I’m pretty good around the' greens,” he added. “Arid with this type of course, you’re going to miss a lot of greens, especially in this wind.” Up by One Courtney stripped four shots I from Colonial’s begrudging par 170 Friday and moved into a I one-shot lead at the halfway! ■point of pro golf’s first desig-1 I noted tournament.

Defending champion Tom Weiskopf, Jack Nicklaus and Lee Trevino made bids for the $50,000 top prize, Weiskopf with a 68 that propelled him into fourth place at 138. Nicklaus, despite dumping a wedge shot into the lake near the 18th green, shot a 69 after an opening 71 and headed a group of six at par 140 Leaning forward in his press room chair to glimpse the leader board, Nicklaus, one of the ■“designated” players required on six hits and Tommy Davis    to appear    here, said:    “I clubbed two homers, driving in    guess i’m not    in all that bad a four runs in a game trimmed to|    P°sitioii...    a    couple of    good six innings by rain and enli- j0 Big Ten Baseball Lead To Iowa; Gophers Split —AP Wirephoto Hisle To Win By The Associated Press The Big Ten baseball race, originally scheduled to end today, is bogged in the rain and mud.
