YEH EDGES JORDAN BY TWO SHOTS

The MMGA teed it up at Coyote Springs on Tuesday and it was not windy not even at the Chase.  But the course won again.  Andrew Yeh, despite a triple bogey seven on the first hole, played the greens with the least amount of difficulty shooting a 39 on the front and 43 on the back for 82 for medalist.  His playing partner Dave Jordan almost reversed that score with a 39 on the back but recorded a 45 on the front side to lose by two strokes.  His 84 netted him a 77 to tie Manny Lira (102) and same net score.  But the ever first handicap hole won it for Jordan with a bogey five to Lira’s triple seven.  Even though Don Mannon did not play both Jordan and Yeh moved closer to his lead in the Fed Ex race.  Terry Gardner (96) and putting very well today managed to make the biggest jump in the summer trny from ninth to fourth just one point ahead of Jim Anderson.

MMGA PLAY TO ZERO SKINS

You would think this cannot happen but it did on Thursday at the Casa Blanca golf course.  Eleven great golfers anteed up their skin monies and at the end of the day these “great” golfers recorded zero skins.  There had been some single winners in the past 10 years but never a shutout.  Have we degraded the game that much?  Well back to the game.  Ron Manthey came out of retirement to edge out Andrew Yeh (81) and Dave Jordan (81) by one shot and two over Paul LeVan’s 82.  Joel Reilly (91) and net 69 beat out Le Van’s net 73 for first place low net honors. Reilly’s “traveling brother” Manny Lira (95) and Dan Trower (98) came in third with their net 74’s.

With Lira’s third place finish he jumped into second place in the summer tournament just one shot in front of Dave Jordan.

The next scheduled play is on Tuesday, July 8th at Falcon Ridge at 7:00 and Thursday, July 10th at 7:30 at Conestoga.  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.
