McKinney Edges Wyrick at Nicklaus Club

Tom McKinneyMBGFR President Tom McKinney (86-70) won a card-off over defending Trotter Cup Champion Bob Wyrick (83-70) to take home low net honors at our August 5 tournament at the Nicklaus Club - Monterey. Fourteen MBGFR members played in the event at the former Pasadera Country Club.

Although McKinney edged Wyrick for low net, Wyrick's 83 was good enough to collect low gross money.

Third low net went to Babe Titus (93-73) and Sid Williams (94-74) was fourth low net.

Closest to the flagstick money went to Jerry Schock on #3 and Tom McKinney on #16.

Thanks to Claudia and Babe Titus for hosting this tournament!
