TUESDAY: ANDERSON LEADS LOW NETTERS
Jim Anderson turned in a fine round of 43-47-90 to tie Joel Reilly’s 42-44-86 both players netting out with the low net of 67. And Anderson prevailed as Reilly “snow-manned” the first handicap hole at Falcon Ridge to hand Anderson first place low net. Paul LeVan’s nice even par 35 on the front followed with a 42 on the back was second low gross and second low net with 68. One shot back at a net 69 was Hal Rundle (83). Andrew Yeh with birdies on 10, 14 and 16 shot a three under par 34 on the back with a 37 on the front for medalist honors at one under par 71. The newest MMGA member, Tim Bergstrom out of Minnesota, recorded the shot of the day on the par five 10th hole. His second shot, a nine fairway medal, landed short of the green and rolled all the way to the back pin stopping three inches short a Adrian Peterson “kick” in eagle. Tim welcome to the MMGA!

THURSDAY: HERE COMES MANNY
Everyone had just about given up on Manny Lira’s chances to come back and win the summer net tournament, that is everyone but Manny. At the Casa Blanca Thursday he recorded birdies on holes three and thirteen to score 46-47-93 for a net 69. That earned him 320 “fed-ex” points and bolted him back into contention in the summer tournament. His score was the only one to net in the 60’s. Ed Hoepfner (82) and net 71 earned 300 pts to move him up as well. Andrew Yeh took the day off and had no birdies shooting a 78 for low gross. Tim Bergstrom took the courageous shot of the day. On the par five 11th his tee shot stopped just a couple inches in the water will he successfully doused himself with a cool spray of recycled water and landed in the bunker just short of the green.

The next scheduled play is Tuesday, July 7th at Falcon Ridge at 7:00 and Thursday July 9th at Conestoga for golf and lunch at 7:30. Always check your sig up sheets for any corrected times or places.

Here are the results after the first month of June for the MMGA
summer net tournament. It appears that there will be a run away
winner this summer in the name of Andrew Yeh. Manny Lira and
Don Mannon and Ed Hoepfner were trying to stay close but recent
rounds have dropped them back. Maybe the player to watch is Joel
Reilly who has steadily moved up and is now in second place 200pts
behind.
