  • Description

    MEXICAN BORN GOLFER LEE TREVINO STAGED ANOTHER LATE COME BACK TODAY TO SHARE THE LEAD WITH BRITAIN'S TONY JACKLIN AT THE HALF WAY MARK OF THIS YEAR'S BRITISH OPEN GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS BEING PLAYED AT SOUTHPORT, NEAR LIVERPOOL. IN THIRD PLACE ON 140 ONE STROKE BEHIND THE TWO LEADERS IS LIANG HUAN LU OF TAIWAN. TREVINO REPEATED YESTERDAY'S STRONG FINISH BY SINKING A 15FT PUTT FOR AN EAGLE THREE ON THE LAST GREEN TO JOIN JACKLIN ON 139 AT THE END OF THE SECOND ROUND. ANOTHER HIGHLIGHT OF TODAY'S PLAY WAS A HOLE IN ONE BY BRITISH PROFESSIONAL LIONEL PLATT. THIS IS SHOWN ON THE FILM.

    SYNOPSIS: BRITISH GOLFER TONY JACKLIN RETAINED HIS JOINT LEAD IN THIS YEAR'S BRITISH OPEN GOLF CHAMPION SHIP AT SOUTHPORT IN ENGLAND WITH A SECOND ROUND SCORE OF 70 TO GIVE HIM A TOTAL OF 139.

    JACKLIN WAS AIDED BY SOME STRAIGHT AND SOMETIMES LUCKY PUTTS. BUT HE PLAYED STRONGLY ENOUGH TO SEE TWO OF THE GOLFERS WHO SHARED THE LEAD WITH HIM OVERNIGHT, DROP BACK. ONLY LEE TREVINO STUCK WITH JACKLIN....AND IT WAS ONLY AN EAGLE ON THE LAST HOLE THAT GAVE HIM A SCORE OF 139....EQUAL TO JACKLIN'S. BUT THE SURPRISE OF THE DAY WAS PROVIDED BY TAIWAN GOLFER LIANG HUAN LU WHO OUTPLAYED SOME OF HIS BETTER KNOWN RIVALS TO SHOOT A SECOND ROUND 70, THE SAME SCORE AS HE HAD ON THE FIRST ROUND TO PUT HIM IN THIRD PLACE AT THE HALF WAY MARK. THE 35-YEAR-OLD GOLFER IS HOLDER OF THE PHILIPPINES AND THAILAND OPEN TITLES. HE'S PLAYED STEADY GOLF THROUGHOUT THE TWO ROUNDS AND EXCEPT FOR A FIVE A THE LAST HOLE COULD HAVE BEEN SHARING THE OVERNIGHT LEAD.

    THE DAY PROVED MEMORABLE FOR BRITISH PROFESSIONAL LIONEL PLATT WHO SCORED A HOLE IN ONE. ALTHOUGH WELL DOWN IN THE FIELD, AND LIKELY TO SAY THERE, PLATT WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER THE 1971 OPEN, THE ONE HUNDREDTH PLAYED.
