Waldorf Uses Fast Start To Lead Hawaiian Open; Ogle Avoids Eye Injury

By Compiled From Wire Services

Duffy Waldorf used a hot putter to post a 7-under-par 65 and take a three-stroke lead Friday in the second round of the $1.2 million Hawaiian Open at Honolulu.

Brett Ogle, trying to make an aggressive move that would put him back in position to defend his Hawaiian Open title, gave the golfing world a scare when one of his club’s splintered off a coconut tree and struck him in the face.

It was initially feared that he had suffered a fracture of the orbital bone under his left eye, but X-rays taken at a hospital indicated a bruise. However, the X-rays will be examined further.

Waldorf, who had an opening 68, checked in with an eagle and six birdies and stumbled only once, when he threeputted the 419-yard 16th hole.

His 133 total put him three strokes ahead of two other early starters, John Morse, who also shot a 65 over the 6,975-yard Waialae Country Club layout, and Clark Dennis, who opened with a 68.

Chip Beck, with a 66, and Brian Henninger, who shot 65, were at 7-under 137. Mark Wurtz was alone at 138.

At Dorado, Puerto Rico, Raymond

Floyd shot a 4-under-par 68 to take a 1-stroke lead after the opening round of the Senior Tournament of Champions.

At Orlando, Fla., Beth Daniel shot a

1-over-par 73 to take a one-stroke lead over first-round leader Barb Mucha after two rounds in the LPGA Tournament of Champions. Another stroke back were Dawn Coe-Jones and Liselotte Neumann.

With the wind gusting, Mucha, who shot a first-round 68, came in with a 75 to trail Daniel’s 69-73 by 1. They are the only two players under par.
