Jay Delsing saved par after hitting into water at No. 17 and took the lead at the halfway point of the Phoenix Open on Friday. "Every round seems to have a turning point; No. 17 was mine," Delsing said after completing a bogey-free round of six-under-par 65. The rangy, 6-foot-5 Delsing hit his tee shot into a lake on the par-four 17th hole--his eighth hole of the day--at the Tournament Players' Club at Scottsdale.

Every night before he goes to bed, Jay Delsing should whisper a little word of thanks to Severiano Ballesteros. It it weren't for Ballesteros, Delsing wouldn't be playing in the Los Angeles Open. But Delsing is playing, and he came out shooting birdies Thursday, finishing the first round with a 66, five under par, at Riviera Country Club. That gave the 6-5 1/2, 185-pound former UCLA All-American golfer a share of the lead with another California college product, Dennis Trixler of Fresno State.

The last round of the PGA Tour Qualifying tournament, scheduled to be played at La Purisima Golf Course near Lompoc, was canceled Tuesday because of rain, the first time that has happened since the 108-hole format began in 1982. The tournament was shortened to 90 holes because the course was unplayable after two daysof rain, which meant that 49 players at even par or better earned PGA Tour cards for 1997. Allen Doyle and Jimmy Johnson had the best scores in the five rounds at eight-under 352.

Canadian Dave Barr was another stroke back. He overcame some early putting problems and made four consecutive birdies in a round of 68.

Joey Sindelar played the final 10 holes in seven under par Thursday and finished with a six-under-par 65 to take a one-stroke lead in the first round of the $400,000 B.C. Open golf tournament. Jay Delsing was second at 66, and Antonio Cerda was another stroke back after 18 holes on the En-Joie Golf Club course. "The last 10 holes, seven under, that will certainly turn you around and get it going in the right direction," said Sindelar, a native of nearby Horseheads, N.Y.
