TUESDAY: HART / GREER MAKE STRONG PUSH TO END JULY TOURNAMENT
The MMGA had the pleasure to finish out their July Beat the Heat Net Tournament at the Conestoga golf course. Nineteen players teed it up to try and maneuver positions for the final day. With John Meyer already the first place finisher he decided to sit it out as well as the second place Ray Rodgers. It didn’t cost Meyer anything but by sitting out Rodgers dropped from second to fourth place in the final standings. Tom Greer(85) and Gerry Hart(96) played together and both ended the day tied for first place low net with 70’s. Their battle for second place went to the fifth handicap hole, #8, where Hart shot a par four that earned him second place and Greer bogeyed for third.
THURSDAY: BUBBA PETRICK WINS BY ONE SHOT OVER LE VAN
The lately struggling Bubba Petrick found his focus today at the Canyons and shot a superb two over par 73 at the Canyons golf course. “I have always liked putting on these greens” Petrick commented after his round. He had a bogey on the par five second hole and hit his tee shot on the par three 4th hole within three feet for his birdie and parred out the last six holes for his even front side of 35. He parred the all of the first seven holes on the back and missed a relatively easy putt on 17 for his 73. Paul LeVan just about copied Petrick on the front side with a bogey and a birdie on the most difficult hole, number 6, for his even front side of 35. After bogeying #10, LeVan parred the next six holes before he bogeyed 17 and 18 for his nice round of 74. Great rounds guys! Three strokes back of LeVan was Dick Swayne shooting a 38 on his front side and then birdying holes 11 and 12 for a 39 on the back for a round of 77. Three players were tied for first place low net with 66. LeVan, Petrick and Tom Greer. The above mentioned birdie of LeVan’s on the first handicap hole earned him the low net.
