The two Brookview Metro Senior teams had a tough day at Valleywood Friday. It was hot and muggy. Thank goodness for a little breeze.
The Valley team, which garnered ten points, was led by Tom Hansen and Dan Olson. Olson played well and won his match 6-0. Hansen tied for the low score of the day, firing a 77 and won 4-2. But then, something happened. Marty Mangold must have been ailing, lost his mojo, and was defeated 0-6. Randy Zejdlik’s back must still be ailing as he too was defeated 0-6.
The Golden team, which secured eight points, was led by their captain, Roger Hamm, who shot a 93 (net 78), to win his match 5-1. Ramiro Sifuentes also played well (84, net 74) but lost his match 2-4. Doug Maday did not have his usual stellar day and was defeated 1-5. And Chuck Bernardy slipped a little (he’s having a great season) and lost his match 0-6.
Currently, in the sixteen team field, the Valley team is in 7th place and the Golden team is in 14th place. This Friday the Valley team hosts the event at Brookview. Hopefully both teams can take advantage of their home course.
