SOLVANG, CA (July 20, 2005) -- Because they live nearly 100 miles apart, Ronald Boll and Dale Meyers don't have too much to play together, even though they belong to the same SCGA affiliate club: California Air-Guard. But the two retired military pilots came together perfectly and rallied from off the pace to capture the 18th SCGA Affiliate Club Team Championship at the River Course at the Alisal.
Boll and Meyers fired a 7-under-par net 65 in today's Pinehurst format, and when joined with their net 62 in yesterday's four-ball net format, their 36-hole total of 127 was good for a two shot victory over Mike Snyder and Greg Snyder of TNT. Kirk and Brian Dancses of GolfExtra GC finished in third at 130.
First-round leaders Dennis Grogan and Jim Fortier of Long Beach Firefighters, who shot a lights-out 57 in yesterday's better-ball format, slipped to a 2-over-par net 74 in the tougher Pinehurst format and finished in a group at 131.
The tournament's individual highlight came from Perry Huyck of Split Tee, whose pitching wedge tee shot on the 115-yard, par-3 seventh hole landed in the hole for his first ace in 40 years of golf.
