LE VAN WINS WINDY LOW GROSS

When are these winds going to stop?  Paul LeVan won for the second straight Tuesday this time at the Palms in those nasty winds.  Once again without recording a birdie he managed to shoot 44-39-83 and beat Jerry Hyland (84) and Don Mannon (84) by one shot.  Hyland and Sterling Johnson were the only other players breaking 40 by matching Le Van’s 39 on nine holes.  Half the players shot 90 or above. Even Andrew Yeh (86) and Dave Jordan (87) had issues with the wind.  Mannon’s 84 did net out as 67 and was good enough for first place low net.  Terry Gardner loves to play in the wind and it showed as he shot 85 and a net 70 for second place low net.

ANDERSON’S 63 BEATS JOHNSON BY TWO SHOTS

Oh how the MMGA likes to play in perfect weather rather than the wind.  On Thursday their scores plummeted almost as much as the winds from Tuesday.  Jim Anderson left his driver in “time out” in his garage and shot a fabulous round of 42-44-86 with one birdie for a net 63 beating out Sterling Johnson’s 40-43-83 and net 65.  Tom Durenberger (79) netted 66 and Andrew Yeh (72), Don Mannon (84) and Clark Mitchell (80) had net 67’s.  Yeh only recorded two birdies on his low gross round but had 14 fours scoring fours on eight out of nine holes on the back side.  Anderson’s first place finish jumped him from 11th to 4th and Johnson’s fine round moved him from 9th to 3rd in the summer “fed-ex” tournament.

The next scheduled play is on Tuesday, June 24th at Falcon Ridge at 7:00 and Thursday, June 26th at CONESTOGA at 7:30.  Always check your sign up sheets for any corrected times or places.  Anyone interested in joining the MMGA can call 346-6363.  Also check out our website at www.mesquitemensgolf.com.
