Along about 6 p.m. Sunday in Westford, Mass., Pat Bradley's dad began loudly ringing a bell on the back porch of the family home. Pat had won the $430,000 Nabisco Dinah Shore tournament with an eight-under-par 280 and he wanted the neighbors to know, so the bell rang as it had for her 16 previous Ladies Professional Golf Assn. wins. Before long the street was clogged with horn-honking cars. Bradley is 35 now, a veteran of 13 seasons on the LPGA circuit and lives in Marco Island, Fla.

Today it will go into a fifth dAy in an attempt to complete the third round and be satisfied with 54 holes, instead of the scheduled 72. Sunday's attempt to finish the third round and get on with the fourth was a complete washout.

Hal Sutton sank a 15-foot birdie put on the first extra hole Sunday to beat Mike Reid in a playoff and win the $400,000 Southwest tournament at Abilene, Tex. It was Sutton's second sudden-death win this year. He defeated David Ogrin in a playoff to win the Memphis Open. Reid and Sutton finished 72 holes at 273, 15-under par, after fighting 30 m.p.h. winds that sent scores soaring at the Fairway Oaks Golf Club. Sutton shot a 71 and Reid had an even-par 72.
