Professionals Gary Anderson and Butch Butler each registered 1-under-par 69 to take the lead in the Senior Open at the Chevy Chase Club, and C.J. Reeves returned a 1-over-par 74 in the Women's Open at Holly Hills Country Club. Yesterday's play marked the first of two rounds for each event, both of which are sponsored and conducted by the Maryland State Golf Association.

Anderson, the head pro at The Hamptons Golf Course in Hampton, Va., had two birdies and one bogey in shooting 34-35, and Butler, the head pro at Cedar Point GC at the Naval Air Station in Patuxent River, turned even, birdied the 10th, then ran off eight straight pars for 35-34-69.

Reeves, from Bedford, N.Y., fifth in the LPGA's Teacher-Club Pro championship earlier this summer, struggled to a front-nine 40 with just two pars, then rang up three birdies on the back on her way to 40-34. She broke out of a tie for the lead with an 18-foot birdie putt on the 18th green.

At 75 were former Middle Atlantic PGA Woman Player of the Year winners Holly Anderson, from Columbia CC, and Patricia Frohna, formerly of Fair Oaks Golf Park, now working in West Palm Beach, Fla.; and one-time LPGA Tour player Cindy Miller.
