Chip Beck, delaying his honeymoon, shot a seven-under-par 65 Thursday for the lead in the $1-million Western Open golf tournament at Oak Brook, Ill. Beck, who was married last Saturday to Karen Thompson, had nines of 34-31 over the 7,097-yard Butler National course to take a one-stroke edge over Payne Stewart and Blaine McCallister. "I guess when you're happy, everything looks good," said Beck, a two-time winner on the PGA Tour who has been blanked this year. He did, however, finish in a tie for second place in the U. S. Open, one stroke behind winner Curtis Strange.

As an optometrist, Craig Steinberg has made a career of vision. But even he hadn't seen anything quite like what happened Tuesday in the 78th California Golf Assn. Amateur championship at Monterey Peninsula Country Club. Steinberg, of Van Nuys, shot a 72 to go with his opening-round 70 and earned third-place medalist honors. Steinberg is the 1988 Southern California Amateur champion and he, along with SCGA Mid-Amateur champion Buz Greene of Thousand Oaks, were the only local players to survive the two-round stroke play portion of the tournament.
