Senior Tournament Players Championship

If any of the big four of the Senior PGA Tour--Jack Nicklaus, Arnold Palmer, Lee Trevino or Gary Player--shows up for a tournament, the event usually is a success. All four are at Dearborn Country Club, so the $1-million Mazda Tournament Players Championship, which gets under way today, must be considered important. One of the few 72-hole tournaments on the 50-and-over tour, it is only the third senior event for Nicklaus, who turned 50 in January.

The Mazda Senior Tournament Players Championship is one of only four 72-hole tournaments scheduled on the PGA tour for the older golfers. For all intents and purposes, the event over the Dearborn Country Club course was only slightly longer than the normal 54-hole senior tournaments. This one lasted about 57 holes. It was on the third hole of the final round Sunday that Jack Nicklaus essentially wrapped up his second victory in three tries with the 50-and-over group.

Butch Baird, who has only one victory in four years on the Senior PGA Tour, shot a six-under-par 58 over 16 holes Friday to take the first-round lead in the flood-plagued Northville tournament at Jericho, N.Y. The opening round of the 54-hole tournament was shortened because the ninth and 14th holes of the par-72 Meadow Brook Club course were flooded by weeklong rains. Don Bies, the defending champion, and four other players trailed Baird by one stroke. Also at 59 were Paul Moran, George Lanning, Frank Beard and Orville Moody, who won last week's Senior Tournament Players Championship.

Tom Sieckmann had to settle for a birdie on his final hole but shot a seven-under-par 64 to take a one-stroke lead Thursday in the first round of the Westchester golf tournament at Harrison, N.Y. Sieckmann missed a 15-foot eagle putt before taking his two-putt birdie-four. Rocco Mediate chipped in on No. 18 for an eagle-three in a round of 65 that left him in scond place. Tied for third at 66 were Mark Lye, Fred Couples, Kenny Knox, Craig Stadler and Dick Mast. Arnold Palmer said a new grip helped him shoot a 67 that tied him with five others for the lead after one round of the Senior Tournament Players Championship at Ponte Vedra, Fla. Orville Moody, Butch Baird, Lou Graham, Tom Shaw and Dick Howell matched Palmer's five-under-par round over the 6,646-yard TPC at Sawgrass Valley.

First-round leader Tom Sieckemann, Australian Wayne Grady and Dick Mast shared the lead at eight-under-par 134 Friday before rain halted play in the Westchester golf tournament at Harrison, N.Y. Sieckman shot a one-under-par 70, Gray a 65 and Mast a 68. A steady rain flooded portions of the Westchester Country Club course and forced a suspension of play with 99 players in the field of 157 still out or awaiting their starting times. Heavy rain and strong wind knocked out power and blew down trees at the Senior Tournament Players Championship in Ponte Vedra, Fla., but couldn't stop Gary Player.

Wayne Grady's three-foot birdie putt on the first extra hole Sunday gave him a victory in the Westchester golf tournament at Harrison, N.Y.--and his continued competition in the United States. "Now you're stuck with me, fellow," the 31-year-old Australian said after he beat Ronnie Black and gained his first title on the American PGA Tour. Grady, who spent a half-dozen years as a dedicated globe-trotter, settled in the United States five years ago. Lack of success, however, had prompted him to consider leaving.

Veteran Howard Twitty, seeking his first win since 1980, shot a 5-under-par 66 Thursday to share the first-round lead with Loren Roberts in the $700,000 Westchester golf tournament at Harrison, N.Y. Twitty and Roberts, a non-winner, took advantage of the improved afternoon weather at the Westchester Country Club for a one-shot edge over Joey Sindelar. It was far different for the morning starters, who played in a cold rain and gusty winds.

Dodds birdied the last three holes Thursday for a 67, and Friday, he matched that score with four birdies. Edwards' roller-coaster round included six birdies and two bogeys.
