LIRA ‘S EAGLE LEADS GOLD TO VICTORY

Manny Lira recorded a rare eagle on the par five 10th hole for a superb 18 holes of 40-42-82 and led the front tee players that took six of the seven net pay out spots.  Tim Miller had four birdies, three in a row on 14,15 and 16 for medalist at 79.  The only other middle tee player to take home some “mola” was Gene Scavetta (82) for second low gross.  First low net went to Russ Clark (86) and net 68.  Lira and Bill Nelson (92) were tied for second at 70 which Nelson won with a par on the first hdcp hole. Lyle Warner may be feeling better since he moved up to the forward tees as he shot (92) net 72 for 4th.  Don Mannon (85) had two birdies, one on the first hole and one on the last hole for a net 73 along with Joe Smith (85) and net 73.  Mannon won 5th with his par and Smith’s double bogey dropped him to 6th.  That left the 7th place to Joel Reilly(92) all alone with his net 74.
