TUESDAY: JORDAN COMES BACK WITH A WIN
Just like a week ago the spring winds were up. But today they were really up over 35 mph especially for the last four holes of MMGA play at Falcon Ridge. Dave Jordan came back after his hiatus and played pretty well with a solid set of 41 scores for 82 to beat out Bubba Petrick (83) and Ken Ward (83) by one shot for medalist honors. Petrick didn’t mind second place gross because his net 70 won him first place low net. Three shots back of Petrick was Tom Durenberger (86) and net 73. One shot back of Durenberger, in third place was John Meyer who also shot an 86 but netted out at 74. The 4th place finish was a tie between Ken Ward (83) and Sterling Johnson (92). Both players shot bogey, bogey and Ward took that 4th spot with a par on eighteen dropping Johnson into the 5th slot.
THURSDAY: YEH EDGES JORDAN ON LAST HOLE
Long time rivals, but they always seem to share their chow mein, Andrew Yeh and Dave Jordan battled it out for medalist honors at the Canyons on Thursday. After five holes Jordan was up two shots but a double bogey on the six hole tied the match. After trading scores on the next two holes their match was tied after nine holes. Jordan took a one shot lead with his par on the 13th hole. Yeh birdied the 16th and parred the last hole to win the match by one shot. Yeh shot 74 and Jordan a great 75. Roger Mueller recorded three birdies on his way to one of his best rounds in awhile a nice 78 and net 65 and won low net honors by one shot over Tom Durenberger (80) and net 66. Durenberger had three birdies on the last four holes. Jordan’s second low gross was rewarded with a second place low net monetary envelope. Durenberger came in third low net due to Jordan’s par on the first handicap hole. The 4th low net went to Greg Sullivan (81) and net 67. Aaron Kennard (83) won that fifth place at a net 68. Picking up the last envelope was Neil Hendricks (82) and net 70 with a par on the 6th hole as Hal Rundle (87) and net 70 recorded a six.
