VELMA — Sunday afternoon at Wildhorse Golf Course was home to the stomping grounds of dozens of area golfers as they took part in the Wildhorse Memorial Day Golf Tournament.
Players as young as 12 to ages into the 60s and beyond battled with the ever changing weather conditions on the course Sunday.
“It was a little less windy this morning than it was yesterday and we had a little rain as well. Even though things were easier to play, scores were still up a little,” Matt Hunt, of Wildhorse Golf Course said.
The players from the morning rounds arrived at the clubhouse heckling each other about missed putts and drives that didn’t quite find the right fairway, while watching Hunt record their scores. Some were satisfied with their results but several of the golfers found themselves moving up or down somewhat.
In B Flight, Carlis Maxwell and David Sanchez found themselves tied for first after both shot rounds of 75 which left them at 149 strokes overall in the three day event. Casey Lynch was at 151 after he shot a B flight high of 74, trailing the leaders by two strokes.
Dale Hurst was pacing C flight with an overall score of 161. Chris Cooper trailed Hurst by three strokes at 164 after both men shot a round of 81.
In D Flight action, Dale Pollock’s 163 led the pack. Leonard Jackson finished in second place for the day tied with Jason Hunt at 165.
“There wasn’t a lot of movement today in the B, C, and D flights as there usually is. Guys were pretty consistent with their scores,” Hunt said.
The afternoon hours brought the Championship, Presidents and A Flight to the course. It also brought David Jennings and his 63 stroke performance which catapulted him well into the lead in the Championship Flight.
Jennings shot a 31 on the front nine and finished up with a 32 on the back side to end up with 63 strokes on the day and 124 overall.
Lyndol Brosh was in second at 138 strokes after finishing with a 71 on the day. Ray Headley was in third at 141 and Jim Wiggins was in fourth at 149 for the tournament.
“Dave (Jennings) and Lyndol (Brosh) both hit the ball well today. I hit the ball pretty good too, I just got some weird bounces and I didn’t putt as good as I could have,” Headley said after finishing his 18 holes on Sunday.
John Maxwell found himself atop the Presidents flight after shooting a 75 which gave him a 146 for the tournament. Heath Edie was in second with 156 strokes and Ronnie Lane was in third at 162.
John Strickland was in the lead in the A Flight as he shot a flight-best 72 to bring him to 150 total for the tournament. Harold Bradshaw was five strokes back at 155 while Jerry Hunt was in third at 161. The tournament will conclude on Monday with each flight finishing up action.
