Christmas and Weather Limit MMGA Players

TUESDAY:

MEYER / DORRELL LEAD MMGA WILD CARD FIELD

The format for the players today was the monthly wild card day when the foursomes were picked just prior to teeing off.

John Meyer put two consistent rounds together, 37-40, and led all MMGA players on Tuesday by four shots. The next best was Bob Chambers with 81 and Bill Irace and Frank Thomasino with 82. Art Dorrell (39-47-86) led the net field with a score of 66. One shot back was Tom Greer with a very nice one over par 36 on the front and a total 83 which netted him a 67. Bob Chambers and Art Tadej (92) were tied for third with net 68’s. Both players double bogey the 13th. Chambers was awarded third when he bogeyed #6 and Tadej double bogeyed for 4th. The 5th low net went to Manny Lira (99) and net 69. John Lewis (97) took the last spot with a net 70 score.

APERCU’S: The shot of the day was turned in by Neil Hendricks on the par four ninth hole. He chipped in from off the green for a nice birdie three. The hole of the day was shot by Art Dorrell on the par five first hole. His second shot from the middle of the fairway was shanked to the right off the side of the hill and bounced back into the fairway. From there he hit his third shot on to the green and sank a 36 foot putt for a great bridie three.

THURSDAY:

CHRISTMAS & WEATHER FORECAST LIMIT MMGA PLAYERS

Two facts of life were working against the members on Thursday at the Palms golf course. First the holiday season and then the cold windy forecast. But to their surprise the weather was great at the start as only 14 players teed off. Tom Durenberger turned in the lowest gross round of 40-43-83 for low gross followed by Jay Bernardoni with 43-43-86. Robert Gray must have picked up some great golfing tips when he joined the Oasis club because he captured first place low net with a gross score of 46-44-90 and net 65. Second low net went to Art Tadej 47-47-94 and net 72. Tom Greer (91), Jim Chatlin (89) and Jay Bernardoni (86) were tied for third with net scores of 74. Greer was awarded third place with a par on the first handicap hole while the other two shot bogey 6.
