EL PASO, Tex. (April, 16, 2011) -- When Bruce Meyer entered the SCAGA Senior Four Ball Championship, he thought his team had a good chance to win. After receiving a phone call less than 48 hours from the start of the championship, he was afraid he wouldn't even be able to play. Meyer's partner, Brian McNutt, called Meyer and told him a medical condition would force him to miss the championship. Meyer was stuck with two choices, withdraw or find a new partner. He found that partner in Lyle Byrum, also of El Paso, and the two had instant chemistry during the first round at Painted Dunes G.C. Finishing with a back nine 34, the pair took a one stroke advantage over the rest of the field after round one.
With nine different teams within three strokes of the lead, the overall title is likely to come down to the final holes. Players can look forward to the inevitable back left hole location on the 160 yard par 3 17th hole. Nestled behind the only water hazard on the golf course, the hole location will have a large part in determining the outcome of this year's championship.
Round Two begins Sunday at 8:00 a.m.
