Wylie Moore Memorial: Final Results

DALLAS, TX (April 2, 2006)--John Hefner closed with a 6-under 65 to overtake first-round leader Larry Trowell and win the Wylie Moore Memorial by four shots at Stevens Park Golf Course in Dallas. Hefner made his move on the back nine on Sunday, starting with a birdie on the long par-3 11th, and following that with an eagle on the par-5 12th and birdies on 13, 14, and 16. For the day Hefner recorded 7 birdies and an eagle.

Trowell raced to a fast start with birdies on four of the first six holes, but a triple on the 7th and a bogey on the 8th brought him back to the field before Hefner forged ahead on the back nine. Trowell closed with a 1-under 70 and a 141 total. Win Bruning finished third at 143, followed by Don O'Connell at 146 and Ralph Cotton at 147. Cotton's 69 was second low round of the day.

In the Net Division, Ralph Richardson rode a career round to a net 9-under 62 and a 131 total, five shots clear of David Patrick, a 4-handicapper who shot consecutive net 68's for a 136 total. Richardson, a verified 15-handicap, had 2 birdies and 8 pars on the round to break open a tight contest. Dennis Garner and Eddie Russell, a pair of 13-handicappers, shot final-round net 70's to finish 3rd and 4th at 138 and 139, respectively.

Once again Stevens Park held its own against a talented field. The course, dating from 1922, is quite short by modern standards but still confounds golfers with tiny greens, tight landing areas, and firm rolling terrain which can produce unpredictable bounces. Despite excellent weather conditions, there were only three rounds under par for the tournament, all on Sunday.

The Wylie Moore Memorial is conducted by the Dallas Public Links Golf Association (DPLGA), which is open to all amateur golfers. Next year's tournament will mark the 30th anniversary of the event. Next up on the 2006 DPLGA schedule will be the Erwin Hardwicke Memorial, to be played on May 26-27 at Tenison Park Golf Course. For more information, visit www.dplga.com.
