Terrific Trio Tops Bay Hill Invitational Leaderboard

Sun., March 22, 1998

At the Bay Hill Invitational in Orlando, Fla., today’s 36-hole final round will feature a terrific threesome of Masters champion Tiger Woods, PGA champion Davis Love III and U.S. Open champion Ernie Els.

“It’s a great leaderboard,” said Woods, who scrambled his way around the Bay Hill Club for a 2-under-par 70 to catch Love at 10-under 134 after two rounds.

Els, who won the Grand Slam in Hawaii last year by three strokes over Woods, was two strokes back at 136.

Liselotte Neumann shot a 4-under-par 69 to extend her lead in the Standard Register Ping in Phoenix, all but eliminating Laura Davies’ bid for a history-making fifth consecutive win in the tournament.

Neumann’s 54-hole score of 14-under 205 put her four strokes ahead of Robin Jones, who moved into second with the day’s low round of 67. Rathdrum’s Tracy Hanson shot a 76 for a 214 total.

David Graham and Hugh Baiocchi overcame cold, blustery winds to shoot an 8-under 64 and take a one-stroke lead into the final round of the Liberty Mutual Legends of Golf senior event in Amelia Island, Fla.

Graham and Baiocchi are at 127 through two rounds of the two-man best-ball event at the Golf Club of Amelia Island. They lead by one over Charles Coody-Dale Douglass and Dave Stockton-Larry Nelson.
