"Nicklaus posted a sixty-eight today and after yesterday's seventy, he's two-under par at one-thirty-eight, together with young Mark Hayes. With half the players still on the course the co-leaders are one ahead of Vietnam veteran Ed Docherty, who had a strange seventy today..... eight pars, five birdies and five bogeys. Nicklaus had to scramble on the later part of his round, collecting one-putt pars on three of the last four holes. Tom Weiskopf, finally playing well again, shot a seventy-one. He's in a crowd on one-forty-one and well in contention for the fifty-seventh PGA title. Jerry Heard came in seventy, his one-forty-five total should easily make the thirty-six hold cut. Also at one-forty-five, seven behind Nicklaus and Hayes are Bud Allan and Lee Trevino. Super-mex, the defending champion here and a seventy two. The course continued to take its toll on many players. Bobby Nicholls could do no better than a seventy-five and is at one-forty-seven. Among those still playing are Billy Casper, Arnold Palmer and Hale Irwin. Irwin may better his opening round of seventy-two, he had a hole-in-one at the third hole. David Colman reporting."
