Mike Reid came from 4 strokes back with a 5-under-par 67 yesterday in the Tucson (Ariz.) Open and scored the first victory of his 11-year career on the PGA tour. Reid, 33, took advantage of Fuzzy Zoeller's front-side troubles to gain a share of the top spot, then pulled away from Hal Sutton on the back side of the new TPC course at Star Pass. The slender, soft-spoken Reid finished with a 268 total - 20 strokes under par. "Words can't describe how grateful I feel," he said.

Couples, who tied the Congressional Golf Course record with an 8-under-par 64 in the opening round, lost 4 strokes to par when he shot a 7 on the 16th hole. Bobby Clampett, Mike Reid, Larry Mize and Leonard Thompson each finished the second round at 138, 1 stroke off the pace.
