MMGA FORWARD TEE PLAYERS DESTROY FALCON RIDGE

What just happened?  Seventeen players teed it up at Falcon Ridge on Tuesday and eight of them played from the forward tees.  It wasn’t the fact that they played from the forward tees but rather the great net scoring they produced.  Of the eight only one player did not register a net score below par 71.  Jerry Hyland led the barrage with four birdies on his way to a gross 76 that included a 10 on the par five 12th hole or he would have “been somebody”.  John Meyer recorded the same 76 with two solid rounds of 38 and won medalist over Hyland on the sixth hole with a par.  Terry Gardner recorded an eagle three on the par five 16th , which aided his nice round of 38-39-77.  His net 64 won him low net honors for the day.  Paul LeVan (79) was the other player to break 80.  Hyland had the best front nine score of even par 35 and Andrew Yeh (82) had the low back side with an even par 36.

 

YEH SCARES FELLOW PLAYERS

Andrew Yeh once again took home the medalist score at Conestoga with a ho-hum 37-40-77.  But story of the day was his tee shot on the fifth hole that almost took out two of his MMGA players putting on the 4th hole.  The par three 5th hole is a straight-forward par three.  The 4th green is over a high hill and to the right of the fifth teeing area.  Dick Swayne and David Jordan are walking to their respective balls to get ready to putt.  Yeh shanked his tee shot from the back tee box well over the hill and landed between the two putters.  So there just had to be some “fun” with this shot.  As Yeh was driving his cart over the rise to the green Swayne was lying on the green feigning to catch his breath and keep from laughing at the same time. Yeh was running down to the green fearing, he had actually hit Swayne.  He asked several times if he was ok, not wanting to believe that he had actually hit him, at which time Swayne got up with a smile and said “ yes, if you will buy me lunch!”.  After removing his ball from the green, taking many deep breaths in relief, hit his next shot from 107yds back to the fifth green to within in 15 feet and sunk the putt for a “shanked” par.  Great shot of the day Andrew!

The next scheduled play is on Tuesday, July 15th at Falcon Ridge at 7:00 and Thursday, July 17th at 9:00 at Coral  Canyon.  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.
