CLEVELAND (AP) Larry Hinson churned out of a logjam with a five-under-par 65 Thurs day and took the first-rounc lead in the Cleveland Open golf tournament. Hinson, who has overcome the handicap of a withered left arm to become one of the most con- sisent money-winners on the pro tour, held a one-stroke lead ovi a group of five at 66 headed by Lee Trevino and Dave Hill. Also at. that figure were Tommy Aaron, Grier Jones and rookie Bill Bi'ask. Bob Menne, who lost a playoff to Trevino for the National Air- lines Open title, veteran Billy Maxwell and Dick Carmody had 67s. A big group followed at 68, including Frank Beard, Tom Weiskopf and Bob Charles. Many of the glamor names in the game are skipping this event to prepare for the British Open.

Gurney won the opening race at Mosport June 14, beating Britain's Jackie Oliver by less than 20 seconds after 200 miles of racing over the twisty circuit. Hulme pushed his McLaren to third place despite badly hurtled hands suffered during practice for the Indianapolis 500 in May. He finished about one minute behind Oliver's Autocoast. Despite the Mosport. victory and the McLaren domination of the Can-Am for the last three seasons, Hulme and Gurney 'ace some stiff competition in ho 75-lap Le Circuit race and :he other nine races remaining n tile series this year. TITANIUM CAR After his second-place finish at Mosport, Oliver, driving the Autocoast, ranks as, the leading contender. His car, built partly vith the light, space-age metal jtanium, was able to run close o the McLarens throughout the jpening race of the Can-Am ser- s.
