Shelley Hamlin shot a five-under-par 67 Thursday to take a one-stroke lead in the first round of the $300,000 LPGA Henredon golf tournament. "I would have to say that I was brilliant today," said Hamlin, who hit a 40-foot putt for a birdie on the 18th hole. "It was a day I gave nothing away. A key was my putting--I got a tip from a pro in Fresno." Hamlin said another key to her good round was deciding to wear running shoes because of blisters on her feet caused by the humidity.

If golf fans haven't heard of Shelley Hamlin, that's only because her battle hasn't been loud enough. That, like Hamlin's life in the last year, is about to change. Hamlin is fighting breast cancer, as are four other women associated with the LPGA tour. Heather Farr's struggle has been more publicized. The illness of Suzanna Jackson, LPGA director of tournament operations, has a higher profile. Hamlin, like millions of American women, has been quietly fighting an insidious disease.

Jack Nicklaus and Greg Norman each fell victim to what Nicklaus called "stupid mistakes" and were among the two dozen players eliminated Friday in the second round of the International golf tournament at Castle Rock, Colo. "I didn't play very smart golf, and that's unusual for me," Nicklaus said. He also had some extremely high numbers, including a 44 for his first nine holes at the Castle Pines Golf Club, a course he designed.

Even the most imaginative scriptwriter would have to struggle to top the tale of Robin Walton in the Inamori Classic golf tournament at StoneRidge here Thursday. In Walton's words, "It was an unbelievable, coincidental, you'll-never-believe-it-in-a-million-years story." En route to the three-under-par 69 that put her in a first-place tie with Marsha Foyer and Caroline Keggi, Walton lost a contact lens on the fifth fairway.

Keith Clearwater still had a one-stroke lead Friday after an up-and-down second round in the $500,000 B.C. Open golf tournament at Endicott, N.Y. Clearwater, who was two over par after seven holes, had five birdies on the last 11 holes to finish with a three-under-par 68 at the En-Joie Golf Club for a 36-hole total of nine-under-par 133. However, his poor start prevented him from adding to his first-round margin. Clearwater's problems were much the same for those trying to catch him.

Jan Stephenson moved ahead to stay when Ayako Okamoto double-bogeyed the 11th hole, then held off the Japanese star Sunday to post a one-stroke triumph in the $300,000 Santa Barbara Open. In snapping a two-year victory drought on the LPGA Tour, Stephenson shot a 1-over-par 73 to finish the inaugural 54-hole tournament at 1-under 215. Stephenson, the only player to break par, won $45,000.
