'Jacklin appears determined with 69-72 Nicklaus scrambles to stay close Thuridoy, July 13, 197J THE IETHSRIDGE HERALD MUIRF1ELD, Scotland (C'P- AP) Tony Jacklin of Britain took over the lead in the British Open golf championship today with a two-round total of 141, one under par, but several of the top players were still to be heard from. Jc-cklin, who won the Open in 1969, shot a 72 to go with' his opening fin. His one-over-par round today included a three- over-par six on the short 13th hole. Close on his heels was a young American, Johnny Miller, who fired a course-record 66, which included a double eagle, for a total of 142. Miller's stunning doublu eagle came on the 558-yard, par-5 fifth hole when he holed out his sec- ond shot. Peter Butler of England shot a 65 here six years ago but it was announced that Miller's 32- 34 on the 36-35-71, Muirfield links was being ac- cepted as a record because the Fires second round of 80 Home in second alone EDMONTON f Special) Barbara Home of Lethbridge registered her second round of 80 in as many days and moved into sole possession of second place in the Alberta Women's Golf Championship Wednes- day.

Native Sons whip Royals The Lethbridge Native Sons earned a 12-6 lead after two periods and went on to stun the Calgary Royals 15-9 in South- ern Alberta Major Lacrosse League action Tuesday. The Sons grabbed an early 3-0 lead, but the Royals came back within a goal after nine min- utes elapsed in the second per- iod. With five straight goals, the Sons cruised to the win, Dwayne Kirchner tallied four times for the local club while Jerry St. Jean, Ken Ham- merstedt and Don Kitchen added a pair each. Solo markers came off the sticks of Pete C o w a n, Bob Monkman, Bill Shaw, Ken 3oychuk and Norm Hall. Ian Traquair scored five for the Royals while Wal- ler Little scored three and Ken McDonald one.

Peter Tupling, a tall English- man whose golfing career is studded with frustration and ob- scurity, was two under after 30 holes. He was the first-round leader "I haven't a chance in the Tupling said after carv- ing out a 68 Wednesday, a three-under-par total that left the world's best shot-makers straggling behind. "If you look at the law of averages, there's no possible way I can win the said Tupling, a 22-year-old who turned pro in 1969 after playing on Britain's amateur Walker Cup team. He's a rangy 6-foot-2, sports a moustache and is refreshingly candid about his chances. "I'm not that good a player he said. "Maybe I will be, I've still got some years to go, but I'm nowhere near that good now." He has yet to win on the Eu- ropean circuit. His best finish was a tie for second but he's had nothing but troubles this year. He has won less than Tupling fashioned his opening 0 with four birdies and a single one-over-par, when he missed the green on the 10th hole. He got back to two under par with a six-iron shot to four feet on the 12th hole, then took the lead with a 15-foot birdie putt on the 14th. He saved par with a 12-foot putt on the next hole, then paired in routinely to lead Tony Jacklin of Britain by one stroke.

A week ago streams like Dutch and Vicary were still hitting a hot pace, but there has been a sharp drop in angler success during the course of the past week. Spotty rain showers has increased the water flow in many of the streams and they have become more turbid. Wet flies and lures are not being taken now as readily as they were two weeks ago. Some of the lakes are also reported to have drop- ped off. Chain Lake and Mami are rated as only poor to fair. Even Beauvais Lake has dropped off considerably. Some improvement is noted at Police Lake fol- lowing several weeks of little or no action. Cavan Lake east of Medicine Hat is rated as having made the best comeback. Three to four rainbows in the five to six-pound category for an afternoon of fish- ing is now reported as not too uncommon. The South Fork Lakes, often referred to as the Burnaby Ridge Lakes open this Saturday. The lakes are the home base for the golden trout in Alberta. Don't be too surprised if Hie lakes are still frozen over when you arrive at the top of Burnaby Ridge. It's been an exceptionally cool and slow spring throughout the south country. SUPERVISING FISH AND WILDLIFE officer for the south country, suggests anglers should give Trav- ers Reservoir an honest try. There is some official belief that the reservoir is harboring kokanees. Test nets have not produced any of the land-lock- ed salmon. But there is something breaking the water surface now, in the evening, and it's not pike. Could tie that kokanee are surviving in the lake in a run, is one possibility. Tyrrell's Lake has also made a marked come- back during the past 10 days. While fly fishermen are having some luck with wets, shore fishermen are finding worms and marshmallow offerings to be .he best. There are scores of anglers champing at the >it to prove the biologists wrong about Tyrrell's. Test lets last fall indicated there was hardly a rainbow eft in the impoundment. AND, THE OLDMAN RIVER is becoming better ban ever for goldeyes. While worms are still the lest, rises are to be seen every evening as the water lears. Just wait until its grasshopper time? Suckers arc in abundance all along the Oldinan. lie odd catfish is still showing up, and a sauger very once in awhile keeps the angling interesting. While the majority of the outdoorsmen are still tying to got with angling, a few are starting to oncern themselves with the fall hunting.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) One of the first things Paul Owens did after he was mada field manager of Philadelphia Phillies was to fire third basa coach George Myatt. Myatt has been a coach for 23 years and is not afraid to speak his mind. In an inter- view with Jim Barniak, Myatt indicated that his candor might have had something to do with getting canned. Last week, he said, the Phil- lies management asked each coach and the manager if the team was capable of playing .500 ball the remainder of tha season. "There was a lot of hem- ming and he said. "When they got to me, I said, 'No way.'" "That sort of startled them, I guess. I told them that our outfield, defencewise, was the worst I'd ever seen in base- ball. And the pitching's real bad. Once you get past Sleva Carlton, it's like reaching into a grab bag. I guess I'm gone because I'm too outspoken in analysing the ball club." "It's the most over-coached ballclub I ever saw in my Myatt said. "There are young guys here, guys who have had one good yearsome- where. who all of a sudden are all tangled up. There are good players who came up through the Phillic's system, looked good all (lie way, and once they go with the big club in spring training, they seemed to lose something." GIVES A nuXDOWN Asked for a rundown on in- dividuals, here is part of w hat Myatt said: Greg Luzinski: "Busted his gut trying lo he an outfielder, bir', it is not his position. He's got lo be on first base. He's proving he can hit." Tern' llnrmon and Dennr Doyle: "Both arc growing up a hit. Neither one is going to be great, but they can be good ones." Don Money: "A very con- fused guy right now. Defi- nitely n victim of overcoach- ing." Oscar Gamble: "Now here's a kid with a lot of natural ability.
