MANNON RECORDS EIGHT STRAIGHT PARS

Don Mannon’s round of 39-46-85 included eight straight pars from the fifth hole through hole 12.  The streak included the very difficult paar four 10th and the par five water hole number 12.  “It is the first time I have ever scored eight straight pars in my life”, is how Mannon summed up his round.  It also proves how much he is loving the move to the forward tees.  His playing partner Manny Lira also shot a solid 45-46-91 to tie Bill Irace (79) for first place low net at 68.  Both players bogeyed the 13th hole and Irace’s nice birdie three on number six knocked Lira out of first place.  No regrets Lira your round moved you ahead of Jordan into second place in the summer “Fed Ex” tournament.  Three other players shot in the 70’s led by Andrew Yeh’s 37-36-73, Jordan’s 79 and Paul LeVan at 79.  LeVan and Terry Gardner (88) each had two skins with birdies.

LIRA SHOOTS 38 ON THE FRONT TO OVERTAKE MANNON

We are midway through July and the MMGA summer “Fed Ex” net tournament.  Manny Lira traveled to Coral Canyon on Thursday and shot a “hot putting” 38 on the front nine and recorded a 9,8,7 in three straight holes on the back for a average 50 for a total round of 88.  Lira put on a putting clinic making at least 9 putts from five to 10 feet with ease.  It was quite a demonstration.  His score netted him a cool 64 for first place low net.  Combine that with his first place low net on Tuesday and he catapulted into first place in the summer tournament ahead of the idle Don Mannon.   Andrew Yeh (79) and Dave Jordan (79) had their normal competitive round.  Both shot 42’s on the front and 37’s on the back.  Jordan’s par on the first handicap hole awarded him low gross and bragging rights between them.  Playing partners Bill Irace (81) and Paul LeVan (80) also had good rounds. In their foursome they recorded nine birdies with Yeh having four and Irace three.  On the par three 11th they had three birdies.

The next scheduled play is on Tuesday, July 22nd at Falcon Ridge at 7:00 and Thursday, July 24th at 7:30 at th Palms.  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.
