The round included seven birdies, one bogey and one eagle.

Oh, those poor babies! Talk about sour grapes. The cups at the British Open were painted wrong, and with the wrong kind of paint, and the weather was deplorable and the greens were too narrow, and the list goes on and on. For professionals, it seems to me, they want everything to be just perfect in order for them to play. They all arrived early enough to decide whether or not they wished to play and if they felt it was too difficult, they could have withdrawn. Mac O'Grady's remarks were uncalled for and, being of Scottish heritage, it really makes me angry.

His two-round total of 132 put him three shots ahead of Bob Eastwood, who had a 66 for the best round of the day; Buddy Gardner, who shot a 68, and Peter Oosterhuis, who had a 69.

Defending champion Corey Pavin finished off a 65 with a birdie on the last hole and took a one-stroke lead Thursday after the first round of the $600,000 Hawaiian Open golf tournament.

The traveling Mac O'Grady Circus stopped briefly at the Augusta National Golf Club Friday. After shooting a two-under-par 70 to improve his Thursday score in the Masters by 12 strokes, O'Grady, who does not talk to reporters in pressrooms, entertained about a couple of dozen of them on the veranda of the green-and-white clubhouse. Curious spectators listened from the street.

Commissar Deane Beman's suspension of Mac O'Grady is the most outrageous of several small-minded actions that are destroying interest in professional golf. Deane says that: --The American public no longer has the right to see Seve Ballesteros in action because he didn't compete in enough events. --The 1985 record books will be doctored to make it look like Ballesteros never existed. --Golf fans will watch the same 135 players week after week, even though the next Palmer or Nicklaus may be deprived of his chance to compete.

Golfer Mac O'Grady suffered a setback Monday when a federal judge in San Diego refused to issue a preliminary injunction to prevent O'Grady's six-event suspension from the PGA Tour.

"This was one little battle in the whole war," said Stephen Novak, O'Grady's lawyer. "It's a setback, but it's not over.
