TUESDAY: LA LIBERTE HAS EARLY CHRISTMAS PRESENT
J.P. La Liberte found an early Christmas present at Falcon Ridge on Tuesday. The north winds were foretelling of the start of the winter season in the high desert. J.P. who has been working to find his game after a little surgery mastered it today with a nice one under par 34 on the front side and a 42 on the back to score 76 and win by three shots over David Jordan (79). Jordan had a little fun with the current club champion distracting him enough that Jon Hawkins with a 38 on the front had some difficulty on the back to finish with 83. Andrew Yeh was thinking of his trip to New York and couldn’t find a birdie as he turned in a “sub-par” 82. Lew Roney continues to play well shooting a nice 38 on the back with a 45 for 83 and first place low net honors at 70. He was tied with Dave Jordan but after each bogeyed the 13th hole Roney won first with a par four on number six. Third low net went to Yeh with net 74 and Hawkins won fourth with a net 77. This net finish stops all whining that the low handicappers can’t win net spots as they finished two, three and four.
The next scheduled play is on Tuesday, Dec 30 at Conestoga a 7:30 shot gun and Thursday Jan 1 at Casa Blanca at 8:30.Always check your sign up sheets for any corrected times or places. Anyone interested in joining the MMGA can call 346-6363. Also check out our website at www.mesquitemensgolf.com.
