Brian Gerken has been the TMGA's best player the last few years, but family obligations has limited his tournament play this year. However, Gerken was able to offset a double bogey start with 5 birdies, in route to his even par 38-34-72 in breezy conditions at Fostoria CC. Two other TMGA vets-Brian Simmons (who also has had limited play this year) and Terry Tyson finished 1 shot back with 73's. Simmons made 3 birdies with nines of 37-36 and Tyson had 4 front nine birdies shooting 35/38. Joe Cline shot 74 and Connor Stykemain who birdied 1,3,4,5,6 for a front nine 32 was next at 75.
Doug Gust, who always seems to be in the net hunt, shot 40/41-81 for a net 69. Dave Mikolajczak, shot 38/42-80 and Dave Spoerl with 41/40-81 tied for second with net 70's. Mike Kennedy was next at net 71.
Brian Simmons shot 1-under 34 on the front nine at Eagle Rock Saturday, yet found himself down by 2 shots to John Zitkovic. Simmons birdied both 10 and 11 to close the gap, but it was the par 5 13th hole that really catapulted his round. Unsure if his drive was even in bounds, Simmons found his ball safe and was able to hit an 8 iron on the green. He jarred the putt for eagle and took a 1-shot lead that was never relinquished. After making his 5th birdie of the day on the par 5 15th hole, Simmons took a 2 shot lead, and was able to withstand a double on 16 to squeeze out a 1 shot victory. Simmons fired a 4-under round of 34/33-67, that included 5 birdies and an eagle. Zitkovic also had a fine round of 32/36-68 that included 4 birdies, against a lone bogey on #16. Tom Yeager fired even par 71 for 3rd and Connor Stykemain was 4th with 74.
Zitkovic netted 66, as did Dave Mikolajczak, who made 4 front nine birdies to make the turn at 2-under. However, Mikolajczak lost 5 shots on the last 3 holes costing him the outright net victory. Ron Heringhausen, Brian Simmons and Al Szczublewski tied for 3rd with net 67's.
