The spring winds were up again on Tuesday at Falcon Ridge and naturally the MMGA scores were as well. Give credit to the fact that all 21 players that signed up showed up and all finished their round. That’s where the good news ends. Medalist went to Andrew Yeh with a round of 37-46-83. Frank Thomasino had the next best front side with a 38 and Don Mannon was the other front side score under 40 with his 39. This writer intentionally did not record their back nine scores for obvious reasons. There were only four birdies made all day and Joel Reilly, with the only birdie four on hole number 10, shot 91 and won low net with a 70. Two shots back was Bill Irace (86) and net 72. Third place went to Ben Bishop (87) and net 74. One shot back in fourth was Sterling Johnson (91) with his net 75. Delbert Moore (93) won 5th as he parred the 13th hole and than parred the second handicap hole, number six, to beat out Gary Denhalter (92) who parred the 13th as well but tripled up hole six.

This year the MMGA Spring Masters tournament was an inclusive “Masters” tournament. The MMGA director added a little twist and included the real Augusta tournament. For a little extra mullah each player drew for a PGA player in the Augusta event. Joel Reilly came out big and John Meyer was a close second. Reilly won first place low gross in his flight in the Mesquite event and drew Jordan Speith. Meyer won his flight as well as the overall low gross round of 77 as he drew Hunter Mahan. Reilly had a total four day total points of 336 to Meyer’s 342.
