SWAYNE UPSETS YEH
Dick Swayne put all those practice hours to good work and on Tuesday at Falcon Ridge he played very steady golf to win low gross honors. He hung around the first nine shooting a nice two over par 37 and went on to birdie the 11th hole and finished the back side with a strong three over par 39 for a very nice round of 76. The normal Andrew Yeh cruised around for 81 that included a 40 foot down hill putt on the par three temporary green on number nine for a birdie two. His best friend, Dave Jordan, after witnessing that “putt” never came into the club house. He was last seen grabbing his clubs and balls and went right home. The forward tee players struggled on the course as well as the best round was turned in by Clark Mitchell with 80 and Ben Bishop with a 38-43-81. Bishop’s score did reward him with a net 67 for the low net round of the day.
The MMGA sends out a warm welcome to our latest new member Ken Ward from Nebraska. Welcome Ken and we hope you will play every week with us.

CONESTOGA BEATS MMGA AGAIN
Twenty members of the MMGA shot-gunned it at Conestoga Golf Course this past Thursday under ideal conditions. But as it has done in the past, the course won. As expected Andrew Yeh had no issues as he played 39-38-77 to be the only player close to par. Three shots back was Dave Jordan as he shot 39-41-80 Yeh’s closest competitor. Both Yeh and Jordan tied for low net scores of 73 but Jordan won it outright with a par on the par five 9th hole. Jordan’s net 73 moved him up into second place in the “Fed Ex” summer net tournament with only six matches left. Mannon dropped to third and Yeh remained in the fourth spot.

The next scheduled play is on Tuesday, Aug 12th at PALMS at 7:30 and Thursday, Aug 14th at 7:15 at the Casa Blanca golf course. Always check your sign up sheets for any corrected times or places.
