Metro Senior Teams have a Tough Day at Valleywood

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.

Metro Seniors Tumble at Brookview


Yesterday the Metro Seniors played at Brookview as Roger’s Brookview Golden team hosted the event.  It was a beautiful morning and, of course, Roger had everything well organized.  The Brookview Valley team, led by Stan Hop and Gary Ridout, managed to salvage 12 points of the 24 points possible.  Gary and Stan each squeaked out victories, Gary accumulating six points and Stan five points.  Randy Zejdlik was dealing with a shoulder injury but still manged to gain Valley’s final point.  Jim Sanford lost an up and down match to his opponent as he couldn’t quite get across the finish line.  


Roger’s Golden team didn’t quite fair so well.  The team managed to gain six of the possible twenty-four points.  But their time will come.  In the “A” match, Steve Merriman played well, but ran into a buzz saw in Skip Schultz.  Skip was co-medalist yesterday, firing a 75.  Doug Diedrich played to his handicap and gained five points.  Nice playing Doug.  Richard Courtney salvaged a point and Ted Roberts played ok, but again played against a very good opponent.


In the sixteen team field, currently the Valley team is in sixth place and the Golden team is in fifteenth place. Follow the action all season long at https://metroseniors.org Weekly results and weekly standings are online there.
