yielded very few under-par scores over the
weekend, and none in the 60's.
After a week of much-needed rain prior to the
tournament, the course played longer than normal,
although the weekend provided a break from the
downpours that came in four or five waves during

by Ryan Roodzant of Bakersfield, who posted 1-
under 70 in the final round.
