TUESDAY: LeVAN EDGES THOMASINO BY ONE - GREER NETS 67
Tom Greer shot a 43-40-83 on Tuesday to win low net medalist with a 67. Paul LeVan with a nice two over par 37 on the front and a 41 on the back recorded a 78 to nudge out Frank Thomasino who scored a 39-40-79 for second place. “Bubba” Petrick and Tom Durenberger were tied for second low gross with 81. Ray Rodgers (91) and Gerry Hart (94) were two shots back with net 69’s.
THURSDAY: LEVAN TAKES EARLY JULY BTH LEAD
The MMGA took an unusual but pleasant trip to Wolf Creek on Thursday. Paul LeVan shot 42 on the front side while teammate Frank Thomasino was in at the turn with a 39 to take a three stroke lead. LeVan stayed steady and shot a nice two over par 38 on the back. Thomasino birdied the 10th hole to take a five shot lead as LeVan bogeyed. But LeVan played steady golf and was only two back going to the 17th tee. “ I made a dumb shot out of the bunker on 17 and it cost me three strokes on that hole” lamented Thomasino as he headed to the 18th tee. It could have been a four shot swing as LeVan missed a four foot birdie putt. Terry Gardner (87) turned in a net score of 70 to win first place low net honors. At the end of the first week of July LeVan’s two first place low gross finishes, took the early lead in the July B T H tournament by 93 points over Tom Greer.
