    Background: The Singapore Open golf championship, second leg of the 1972 Asian circuit, got under ??? yesterday (Thursday), More than 120 golfers hit off.

    Walter Godfrey of New Zealand shot a six-under-par 66 to lead the field at the end of the first round. He has been in good form since winning the Melbourne Open two weeks ago.

    But Australia's Peter Thomson, runner-up in Singapore last year, did not fare so well. His round was 76. South Lorea's Hahn Chang-sang finished with 74.

    All eyes were on Japan's Hideyo Sugimoto, winner of the Philippines Open last week. Despite a good practice round, yesterday he could only mange 76.

    Taiwan's ???aieh Yung-yo, bidding for his fourth Singapore Open, stayed in contention with 71. Ben Arda of the Philippines, a veteran of the Asian circuit, went three over par with 75.

    Japanese World Cup star Takaaki Kono returned 67 to be in second place after the first round - one stroke behind Godfrey. Equal fourth was another Japanese, former baseball champion Ma???ashi Ozaki, who finished with 70.

    Taiwan's Hsu Cheng-san putted well for par, but Thailand's Sukres Onchum was off target for 75. Sugimoto was also in difficulty on the greens to dim his chances of a second successive 1972 title.
