Trevino to the fore

The American veteran Lee Trevino holds a four-stroke lead in the $45,000 Australian PGA Seniors golf championship after a two-under-par 70 in Canberra yesterday. Trevino has a three-round total of five-under-par 211 over the Gold Creek Country Club course. Australia's Terry Gale, who double- bogeyed the 18th hole, is Trevino's nearest rival at 207 after shooting a 73 yesterday. Japan's Kenichi Tsurumoto is in third place after a 74 yesterday and is at even-par 216. Trevino said it was the worst he had played over the three days. "I feel great but my ball striking wasn't good," he said. "My putter saved me." He knocked in a 35-footer for a birdie at the 13th. "I'm going to make room on my pillow for my putter tonight - I might even sleep on the floor," added Trevino, who has been battling spasms in his right shoulder.
