Gallery favorite Robert Landers, the struggling cattle farmer from Azel, Texas, finished his senior tour debut with a 74 for a three-day total of 228.

That J.C. Snead birdied the 18th hole really wasn't that surprising. The uphill par-five at Newport Beach Country Club isn't that difficult for a pro golfer. The news was the unconventional way he went about it. Snead, who starts today as the best known among four tied for the lead at the Toshiba Senior Open, needed about a 40-foot putt to cap his round of five-under 66. His troubles started on the tee of the 510-yard hole.

The Senior PGA Tour originally was set up as a place for golf's former greats to take their curtain calls, but it has evolved to something completely different. That was apparent Friday at the Toshiba Senior Classic at Newport Beach Country Club. It certainly wasn't a day for fans to look at the leaderboard and recall many fond PGA Tour memories. One familiar name, J.C. Snead, popped up--the eight-time winner on the regular tour finished with a five-under-par 66 to tie for the lead.

Black golfers Jim Dent and Walter Morgan said they've been exchanging racial banter with the likes of white golfer J.C. Snead for years, and weren't offended by recent remarks Fuzzy Zoeller made about Tiger Woods. "The guy was making a joke," Dent said. "We do that kind of stuff all the time out here." "We call J.C. a hillbilly redneck from Virginia and everything, and he jokes back," Morgan said. "We're just having fun out here."

J.C. Snead felt the Senior Players Championship tightening around his throat. "I was choking," Snead said. "It seemed like every time I'd make a birdie, I'd come back with a bogey. And it wasn't even on the tough holes. I just had seven- and eight-foot putts for birdies, and I couldn't make any of them." It didn't matter. Snead had such a big lead he was able to maintain a five-stroke lead with even-par 72 in the third round Saturday at Dearborn, Mich. Snead finished the day at 13-under-par 203.

J.C. Snead shot a one-under-par 70 Saturday and moved into a three-way tie for the lead with Dick Mast and Australian Wayne Grady in the third round of the Westchester golf tournament at Harrison, N.Y. Mast, who has yet to win in nine seasons on the PGA Tour, and Grady, not yet a winner in the United States, each shot a 71 on the soggy course to share the lead with Snead, 48, at 205. Scott Hoch, who shot a 67, and Mark Lye, who had a...

It's time to throw away the idea that the PGA West Stadium Course is too tough for the Senior PGA Tour. In team play, the old guys can handle one of the most challenging courses in the country rather well. On Saturday, conditions once again were ideal in the desert--warm and calm--for the second round of the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf event. Organizers lengthened some holes and toughened some pin placements, but still, the birdies and eagles kept coming.

George Burns, the golfer, is easily distinguishable from George Burns, the comedian. Burns, the golfer, is the one who often wears a long face and who has a tendency to get down on himself. His idea of a good time is riding an exercise bike and lifting weights. Even on Sunday, his biggest day in golf, George Burns III seemed to fight the urge to smile broadly or say anything that might be described as amusing.
