Giving Raymond Floyd a lead going into a final round is like sending rice to China, money to Switzerland, ice to Siberia. It's nice, but it's not necessary. Floyd on a golf course is like Johnny Longden on a horse. You can get to him. You can't get by him. He brings new meaning to the word front-runner. He could be caught by Dave Stockton, Hale Irwin or Isao Aoki three shots behind--but that may not be the way to bet. Floyd is a master at keeping a field in his rearview mirror.

Larry Ziegler had had enough Saturday, and he sure wasn't going to take it anymore. After whiffing three times while trying to pitch from greenside kikuyu grass on No. 18 at Riviera, Ziegler finally skulled the ball over the green, chipped back and three-putted for a scintillating nine to finish the third round of the U.S. Senior Open. After getting to the scorers' room in the clubhouse, he erased the nine and wrote down 12. "I wanted to make sure I covered all the penalties," he cracked.

It was just past noon Saturday, and Cathy Stockton stood by the first green at Riviera Country Club, antennae up. Tammy Stockton had been watching television and hot-footed it to the course to give her mother-in-law the news from the East: Dave Jr. was tied for the lead in the CVS Classic, a PGA Tour event in Sutton, Mass. "I was so excited," Cathy Stockton said. "And so was she." Tammy is Ronnie's wife, and Ronnie is Dave Jr.'

Lee Trevino took a more aggressive approach with his driver today, shot a 68 and opened a four-stroke lead in the second round of the U.S. Senior Open golf tournament. Trevino, winner of five titles on the over-50 tour this year and a runner-up in his last two starts, reached the tournament halfway point with a 36-hole total of 135, nine under par. With more than half the field of 156 still playing, Mike Hill was second at 139. "I think Lee can do just about anything he wants to," Hill said.

Mike Schmidt, who hit 548 home runs with the Philadelphia Phillies before he retired in 1989, is getting frustrated with his post-baseball life. Schmidt tried broadcasting but it didn't last, he was turned down when he offered to coach the Phillies, and he made an unsuccessful bid to invest in the major league franchise in Miami. "What am I good for?," he asked. "I'm getting tired of doing the same thing every day. Do I have to do it the rest of my life?

The U.S. Senior Open golf tournament went one for two with its big names Tuesday at West Des Moines, Iowa. Arnold Palmer made it. Jack Nicklaus did not. Nicklaus withdrew to continue resting his aching left hip. Palmer, who has been bothered by a pulled rib muscle, arrived Tuesday morning. Miller Barber, winner of the Senior Open in 1982, 1984 and 1985, also withdrew because of family problems. * Juli Inkster, the U.S.

Most people didn't know Larry Laoretti from Mario Andretti. Then, out of nowhere, he stepped on a golf course and won the U.S. Senior Open championship the other weekend--knocking the argyle socks off such marketing millionaires as Jack Nicklaus and Arnold Palmer.
