PCGA Open - Heron Lakes

PCGA OPEN - Heron Lakes
 Matt Waters shot a final round 66.1 to claim his 1st PCGA Major Title and his 1st PCGA Event at Heron Lakes Country Club Saturday.  Waters, along with only 3 other golfers broke par for the day.  "It was a long day for golf" said one as they entered the clubhouse.  Rain delayed and saturated an already wet back nine.  Frank Liley carded a 70.4 for 2nd, Van McInnis shot 70.9, finished 3rd and Ron Walsh finished 4th with a 71.8 net.  
McInnis took over the points race, 344, after 6 events.  Kevin Phillips dropped to 2nd with 322, Kipp Bedford moves to 3rd with 327. Denny Mecsko, 321, and Keith Action Jr, 315, round out the top 5.  Good stuff.       
Liley recorded his 4th 2nd place finish.  Congrats.  Tied for 2nd in that category. 
Keith Roberts hit it close on the front nine to claim the cash, $20 that is.  Tom Ferritto, in back to back months, hit it close on the back nine to claim the 8 valuable race points.  Tom Emmons still leads the race for the most closest with 3.  Ferritto is only 1 back.  
Money Title?  Getting close.  You know, it is still too early to talk about this!
Waters was the low man of the day with a 78.    That gives the PCGA another golfer in the Mr.79 or better club!!!!  3 golfers, 3 scores below 80, in 6 events.  Practice anyone?
Mecsko, Waters, Ferritto

Next up for the PCGA
The PCGA returns to Magnolia Grove for the 2nd time this year in August.  We will tee it up on the Crossing this time.  Falls was our first tournament of the year.  Trey Atkins will be looking to claim the Magnolia Grove sweep by winning again, this time on the Crossings.  Looking forward to a great golf course.

early exit

Guys I wanted to explain my early exit Saturday.  First of all, congratulations to Matt Waters on his 78 and first PCGA major Great round Matt!

Unknown to me, until I called home, as Denny and I pulled away from the 18th green but my family had planned a birthday surprise for me Saturday night.  Expecting me to be finished with golf about 5:30 the family was waiting for me.  My 8 year old daughter answered the phone at 7:00 and said "Daddy where are you?  We are waiting on you to cut the birthday cake?"  Denny dropped me off at my car and I left.  Any of you with kids hopefully will understand.

The PCGA is important to me but my family will always come first as I hope yours does too.

This event was set up great for a major.  The shotgun start had all the makings of spending time afterwards to get together and zing each other on the "could have beens".  My intention was to be right there with you all. Weather and surprise birthday parties had other plans for me. 

I also want to take a second to thank Frank Lilley for treating this game we play with the respect of sportsmanship it deserves.  Frank teed off from the incorrect tee during the event and called a two (2) stroke penalty on himself.  This game we play is the only game where the individual player can call a penalty on himself.  When Bobby Jones was praised for calling a penalty on himself this was his response: "You might as well praise me for not breaking into banks. There is only one way to play this game."  I hope we can all take a lesson from Frank and Bobby :).

See you guys next month.
