Mike Wentrup fired a net 66 and just edged Laurence Rosen to win low net in Friday’s matchup on the Dunes/Arroyo course combo. The picture shows Mike at his night job working as a rock star. Howard Jones and Jim Stamatis were again bride’s maids, finishing third in the net category.
Low gross honors went to Mike Miller with a 76. Scott Thompson was on his heals with a 77. Wentrup, Jones and Stamatis vied for the third place bouquet, each shooting a 79. Jones’ round was an exceptionally “consistent” round. After opening with a 44 (including four double-bogeys), he finished with a 35. At his age, it takes a while to get loosened up.
