Gisbert displayed steady, consistent shot-making in defeating the 22-year-old Connors who saw his placements and volleys go awry. "It was one of the biggest wins of my tennis said Gisbert. My game was more steady I did not expect to beat him." Connors said he "seemed to lose interest a bit" during the match.

A BLOKE WHO SOMETHINN THAT WHEN SACK IN A MINUTE WU TOUCH MY Race results Young golfers give it another try Panasiuk enjoys hot hand EDMONTON shooting Bob Panasiuk showed no sign of cooling off as he got ready for today's first round in the 54-hole Alberta Open golf tournament. The Windsor, Ont., golfer fired a five-under-par 66 earlier in the week for the best score in the tournament pro-am over the Derrick Golf and Winter Club course. Panasiuk comes into the tournament as the top money- winner on the Canadian pro tour this summer. He has earned and has won two tournaments, last week's Saskatchewan Open and the Quebec Open in June. "I believe I can win any tournament I play in, "says Panasiuk. "I believe I'm a good player and I think all my shots will turn out. I don't think I will hit a bad shot or miss a putt. "And if I do happen to miss, I get over it quickly and look to making the next shot." Officials of the Canadian Professional Golfers' Association say the Derrick course is one of the toughest on the seven-stop tour. In addition to coping with a demanding layout, the 124 golfers might run into problems if it rains since Derrick has one of the poorest drainage systems of any course in Edmonton. "We have a clay base under the says assistant pro Brian Bygrave." Water just sits and sits forever. When it finally does evaporate, the grass is baked solid." He added that "one inch of steady rain overnight has this course in rough shape." Some rain was predicted for Thurs- day night or early today. Several young Canadian golfers who challenged Stockton, Murphy tied WETHERSFIELD, Conn. (AP) Dave Stockton and Bob Murphy shot six-under- par 65s and tied for the first- round lead Thursday in the Sammy Davis Jr. Greater Hartford Open golf tournament. Stockton, hobbling over the Wethersfield Country Club course with a bone bruise on his right foot, dropped three 25-foot putts and holed three more in the 12- to 15-foot range. Murphy, on the other hand, had it so close to the hole he didn't have a birdie putt of more than six feet and missed two others of about the same length. Those two shared a one- stroke advantage over rookie Eddie Pearce and Australian veteran Bruce Devlin, tied at 66. Hubert Green, George John- son, Don Bies and Jerry McGee followed at 67. Lee Trevino, winner of the PGA national championship last week, bogeyed two of his last three holes for a 68 and was tied at that figure with more than a dozen others. South African Gary Player, who has taken the Masters and British Open crowns earlier this season, bogeyed the final hole and was four strokes back at 69. Defending champion Billy Casper could do no better than match par 71. Jack Nicklaus, U.S. Open champion Hale Irwin, Arnold Palmer, Tom Weiskopf and Johnny Miller are not com- peting. Murphy hit every green in regulation. And he had it so close to the cup that his birdie putts measured two, three, four, four, four and six feet. Stockton, however, got his share of the top spot with a round that included putts totalling more than 130 feet in length. He too, got away without a bogey, but had to do some scrambling. He one-putted for par three times, once from 12 to 15 feet, and admitted he got away with a mistake on the 14th hole. He had to drill a third shot through a small opening be- tween tree limbs to the green to make par five on the hole. Panasiuk in Saskatoon last week will be back for another try. Greg Pidlaski of Stouffville, Ont., and Dan Halldorson of Brandon, Man., were tied for the lead after two rounds last week, will head the contingent of young- sters. Tournament officials, who earlier learned that defending champ Al Balding of Toronto would not be in the field, re- ceived a surprise entry by telegram from H. H. Lund of Denmark. Lund apparently heard about the Canadian tour while playing in Europe and decided on short notice to try his luck here. Officials knew little about him, but discovered after his arrival that he is a four-time member of Denmark's World Cup team. CORN FORD AHEAD EDMONTON (CP) George Cornford of Calgary took the first-round lead Thursday in the inaugural Alberta Seniors Golf Championship.

Podersky led the 55-59 grouping. Summerell played in the frosh 50-54 bracket.
