MMGA monthly wild card tournament results at the Casablanca on Thursday
The best round by far was turned in by new member Rudy Gonzales who had 8 birdies including three in a row on 1,2,3 and 6 and than 11,13, 15 and 15. That may be a MMGA record of birdies in one round.
The overall low net winner was Willie “lucky red” Nelson with a 63. The first flight had the most competitive scores ranging from 66, 67,68,69. The importance of the first couple handicap holes came in to play for each flight as there were ties in each. In the A flight it went to the fifth hole where Paul LeVan beat Ron Bankson with a birdie three. In the second flight Tim Bergstrom shot bogey, bogey and beat Virgil Mink who shot bogey, 2X. And in the third flight Doug Anderson won third place with a bogey on the 2nd hole over Fred Emmons’ 2X.
