PETRICK SHOOTS 78, CLOSES IN ON SECOND PLACE

 

The MMGA took a trip to Sun River to cool off from the Mesquite heat on Tuesday, Aug. 16. Twelve members teed it up at 9 a.m. Bubba Petrick recorded only two 6’s on his card for a 40-38-78 to win medalist. His 78 was a net 69 and it won first place low net in the summer net tournament edging him closer and closer to Ed Hoepfner’s second place slot.

Hoepfner had trouble on the par five 7th with a nine but came back on the next hole and got a nice birdie two but would finish the front side with a 45 and added a 40 on the back for 85 but lost 135 pts to Petrick. Petrick is now only 119 points from overtaking Hoepfner for second place. For the day, Terry Gardner shot 88 and finished with a net 70 for the low net of the daily play. He beat Tim Bergstrom (81) and Tom Durenberger (84) by one stroke.

 

 

LEVAN WINS MEDALIST THREE WAY TIE FOR LOW NET

 

Paul LeVan shooting a 38-40-78 beat upstart Tim Bergstrom by one shot at the Palms on Thursday, Aug. 18. Bergstrom also shot 38 on the front but ran into trouble on his finishing holes for a 42 but all in all a nice round of 79. LeVan’s low gross round was also a tie for low net with Ben Bishop (80) and Tom Durenberger (80) all having a net 68. All three parred the first handicap hole, the par five fifth and Durenberger earned first place with a par on the second handicap, hole the par four 18th.
