TUESDAY: THOMASINO’S 72 BEATS FOUR OTHERS
The new irons and the golf lessons are beginning to pay off for Frank Thomasino. On Tuesday. at Falcon Ridge he birdied holes six and nine for a smooth even par 35 on the front side. His steady one over par 36 on the back was aided by a birdie on the par five 16th hole for a round of one over par 72. Paul LeVan and John Meyer also had front side scores of even par 35 but ran into trouble on the back side. Both players shot the identical scores on the back, 42, for their 77’s. Ron Manthey shot a 38 on the front and a 40 on the back for his 78. The team of Thomasino, Durenberger, Meyer and Petrick had eight birdies coming close to the MMGA record. Ray Rodgers (85), from the gold tees and Meyer tied for low net honors with their 64’s. Meyer won the overall low net when he parred the second handicap hole, #6, and Rodgers bogeyed it.
THURSDAY: MEYER CONTINUES TO PLAY WELL…CLOSES IN ON JULY BTH TRNY
John Meyer continues his play in the MMGA. Thursday at the Casablanca his 38 on the back was one of only two players that broke 40 on either side. His total score of 79 was two shots better then Frank Thomasino’s 81 who had the other sub 40 score of 39. Ray Rodgers has been gunning for that first place low net spot for weeks and today finally did it with a gross score of 41-43-84 and net 65 which was two strokes better than Bill Eller (84) and a net 67. Gerry Hart (91) was one stroke back with 68. Meyer’s fine play has made him impossible to catch for the July Beat The Heat “Fed-Ex” tournament over second place Rodgers with only one date left. Jerry Hyland had the best series of five holes. Starting on 18 with a chip in birdie three, bogeying number one, parring number two and hitting an eagle two on the third hole from 100 yds out he would par the 4th to be two under thru five holes. Frank Thomasino also started out well birdying the first, third and fourth holes to start three under after three.
