Southern California (SCGA) Affiliate Team Championship

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.

ABOUT THE Southern California Affiliate Team

The tournament is open to two-person teams, with both players members of the same SCGA Affiliate club, and each having established full, active current indexes not exceeding 24.4.

If the size of the field is not complete (64 teams) by the date of the entry deadline, the SCGA will allow a second team from an affilliate club, by date of entry receipt, to enter. Clubs should, therefore, be sure to designate which is the No. 1 team and the No. 2 team on entry forms they submit.

Tues., — 18 holes, Four-Ball net stroke play. Wed., — 18 holes, Pinehurst net stroke play.

HANDICAPS: On Day 1, individual players will play to 80% of their course handicap. In the Four-Ball competition only, handicap spread restriction of 5 strokes is imposed on teams. Although players may not “play down” to meet the maximum current index of 24.4, they must “play down” to meet the maximum 5- stroke handicap spread between team members. On Day 2, 20% of the higher handicap player plus 50% of the lower handicap player will determine the team’s handicap. Each partner drives from each tee, then plays the second shot with the other’s ball. After the second shot, the team chooses which ball it will use to complete the hole, hitting alternate shots. Handicap is deducted from team score at the end of the round.
