The 2017 MMGA Club Championship was played Tuesday at Falcon Ridge and Thursday at the Palms golf course. Andrew Yeh made sure no one got any ideas of winning medalist.
There was no doubt, as Yeh made five birdies on his way to a crushing four under par 68. Jeff Hoyt tried his best to keep up with his 74 and Rod Stanger laid down a 75. Ten shots back was the last under 80 score of 78 by Bill Irace.
The young zero handicapper had such a lead after the first round that he coasted on Thurs with a 74 to win by 13 shots over the demoralized contenders, Stanger, Irace by 18, and Hoyt by 22. New member Richard Brown, playing from the middle tees shot 86, 80 for a gross of 166 and a net of 128 to win overall low net first place. Fred Emmons won “The Most Improved Player” award for 2017.
