We ran into a buzz saw against Fountain Valley on Sunday. Apparently, a bunch of the big guns from Valleywood decided to leave the club and join Fountain Valley because they were raising their rates (!). We actually played them very tough but came up short and lost 10.5 – 13.5.
Reports on the ground were that they had 5 rounds of 70 or lower! Trent Peterson led the charge with a smooth 66 in the first group…playing the day before the State Am at Edina CC where he would go on to finish THIRD at -9!!! Other notables were John Holmes and Justin Burleson, two guys that have had prominent amateur careers in MN. Have to think these guys should be bumped up to a higher division next year.
Mike Sustad and Kelly Gallagher led the Brookview squad with a rounds of 70 and 71. Great playing guys!
Nice job hanging in there guys. We did a great job to have a chance to beat these studs with the last group coming up 18.
