Friday, he suddenly showed up at the green as the number two man in the three-day tournament. One of the surprises was Bill ffakcliam, a 29-year-old profes- sional from Victoria, who was tied with Moryson for the lead in the first round. He posted a 77 Friday for a total 140. Oax was not happy with Ins putting en greens which he said were difficult. He has missed four short putts in two days, one of a four-footer on the 16th Fri- day. Moryson also had problems on the greens, three putting the 16th from 15 feet. He then cracked the ball off the 17th fairway and took a two-over par on that hole. The (force-putt 16th and the bad shot cost him the lead. Groan had been playing con- sistently well but he also ran into difficulty on the 17Ui and went one over.
