Andrew Yeh had no birdies on the front for a one over par 36. Started the back nine with a birdie on 10 and 12. He double bogeyed 13 and bogeyed 16, both due to penalty shots, but managed to shoot 75 for medalist.
HOEPFNER – PETRICK TIE ON CHRISTMAS EVE
At the CasaBlanca on Christmas eve morning Ed Hoepfner played with the BIG elf Bubba Petrick. Both managed to shoot the same round of 87. But skinny elf Hoepfner’s handicap netted him a 74 and gave him his first present of the day first place low net. Petrick had to settle for a tie for the “coal” ward with Minnesota’s Willie Nelson (95) both players netting a 76. Petrick shot bogey, double bogey, par to snatch the coal from Nelson or recorded a bogey, double bogey bogey for third. Paul Le Van with an 85 got the last present with his net 79.
