The second-round leader, 17- year-old Dave Parker of Ed- monton and 16-year-old Roy Abbenbroek of Calgary, tied for fourth at 230. Parker, who led Cowing by a shot, 150 to 151, after 36 holes, faded to 80 in the final round. Abbenbroek shot a last-round 74. Wayne Meyer of Edmonton, the co-leader with Parker end Edmonton's Tony Lecuyer after the first day, was alone in sixth with 232. Lecuyer and Bob Haldane of Red Deer shared seventh with 233. Doug Lecuyer sunk a dutch seven-foot par putt on the 17th hole to hold off Cox, who had pulled even with Lecuyer, sink- ing an eight-foot brktie on the 460-yard 14th. Cox double bogied 16, how- ever, and Lecuyer bogied to lose a shot he never recovered.

Record book threatened at Troon Weiskopf, Miller set to meet head on TROON, Scotland (AP) Tom Weiskopf and Johnny Mil- ler may write themselves into the record books today in their lead-to-head clash for the 102nd British Open golf championship. The two golfing stars were locked in what seemed like a two-man charge for the coveted trophy over Row's layout along Scotland's windy west coast. Weiskopf, from Columbus, Ohio, who has won three United States PGA events recently, and Miller, the U.S. Open champion, were only one shot apart as they went into the final round. Weiskopf was at 206-10 under par. Miller was nudging him with a 54-bole total of 207. As they partner each other on the final day, the winner may need a record score to hold off the runner-up. Arnold Pahner, the veteran from Latrobe, Pa., set (be Brit- ish Open record the last time the championship was played in Troon, in 1962, with a 276-12 under par. RECORD IN BEACH Weiskopf caeds a three-under 69 to beat the record. He and Miller have teamed 19 the course in conditions that varied between stiff winds and down- pours on the first three days. Weiskopf went Mil- ler did 7fr68-69. Fellow American Bert Yan- cey appeared the only player within reach of the two leaders among the 70 golfers who sur- vived the cut for the last round. He was another four shots off the pace at 211. Brian Barnes and Neil Coles of Britain each had a 213 and Lanny Wadkins, another U.S. tourist, was at 214. Jack Nkklaus fell out of con- tention with a 215 while Palmer bad a 218. Defending champion Lee Trevtoo's bid to win the open for the third consecutive time wavered as he ballooned to a 221 after taking three bogeys in a string of four on the back nine. "This is the big said Weiskopf. "But I be wor- rying about the other guy. I'll just play the course." Miller, who picked off pars and birdies-with assur- ance as he gradually wore down Weiskopf's toad from the fust day, told reporters: "This is the best I've ever been going into a final round. "It would be cream on the top of the cake to win this one after the U.S. Open." Tara Road best challenger Royal Chocolate favored WINNIPEG (CP) The en-' try of Royal Chocolate and Tara Road has established itself as the pre-race favorite for the 25th running Sunday of the Manitoba Derby at As- siniboia Downs.

TEL AVIV (AP) Three Kenyan runners invited to race in Israel's ninth Maccabiah Games as special competitors said late Friday they had re- ceived instructions from Nair- obi to bow out of official coin- petition because of the partici- pation of Bhodesian Jewish ath- letes in the event. Word of their pull-out came as the track and field finals were set to begin tonight. Distance runners Amos Be- mott and Thomas Maweu and women's African champion Sa- bina Sabichi said they had been instructed not to compete against athletes from Rhodesia competing here in the so-called Jewish Olympics. Maccabiah officials decided to arrange what they called a "special invitation program" outside the Maccabiah schedule I in which foreign, non-Jewish' athletes would compete after the regular athletics com- petition. The Kenyans were unavail- able for comment on the in- structions.
