Ueno strung together birdies on Nos. 3 and 4 and Nos. 6, 7, 8 and added two more birdies on the back nine at the 6,993-yard, par-72 Phoenix Country Coub course.

Ishii, of Hawaii, the second-leading money winner on the Japan PGA tour with four victories this season, scattered six birdies and one bogey for a 67 and shared second with Japan’s Koichi Uehara and Kazuo Kanayama.

At 68 were American Kenny Knox and five Japanese - Masashsi Ozaki, Tsuneuki Nakajima, Hiroshi Makino, Saburo Fujiki and Ikuo Shirahama.

Americans Andy Bean, Scott Simpson, Bob Tway and Larry Mize, Spain’s Seve Ballesteros and Japan’s Yoshimi Niizeki, Hideto Shigenobu and Taijiro Tanaka shot 69.


LONDON (AP) - Nick Faldo, the British Open champion, and the victorious European Ryder Cup golf team of which he was a member, have picked up two of the three major honors in the annual awards poll conducted by the British Sports Writers’ Association.

Faldo was voted sportsman of the year with 176 votes. Golfer Ian Woosnam, the first British winner of the Suntory World Matchplay Championship, was second with 149 votes and Terry Marsh, the world light-welterweight boxing champion forced by sickness to retire, was third with 52.

CINCINNATI (AP) - Ticket revenues from a workout by members of the 1988 major league baseball All-Star squads will be donated to the children’s section of the Cincinnati Zoo.

The Cincinnati Reds and Riverfront Stadium will be hosts for the 1988 All- Star Game on July 12. The workout, in which players will compete in contests including a home run hitting competition, will take place the day before the game.

In the last three years, the workouts have contributed about $400,000 to youth-oriented charities in Minneapolis, Houston, and Oakland, the sites of the previous three All-Star Games.

This year’s All-Star workout in Oakland was a sellout, raising $182,000.
