First half of men's league comes to end

 


The Havre men's league golf association completed the first half of its regular season this week as four teams from both Tuesday and Wednesday night earned automatic berths into this fall's league championship playoffs.

On Tuesday night, Hole 19 captured the first half championship with a total of 184 points. Driver's Choice finished in second place with 177.5 points while Stockman Bank was third at 177 and Farnik Bin Sales was fourth at 174.5.

On the final night of the first half of the season, Hole 19 grabbed high-team honors to go along with its first-half victory as it racked up 23.5 team points. Hole 19 is composed of Kevin Olson, Mike Purkett, Gerry Veis and Tim Keating. Nick Obie took home low-gross honors with an even-par round of 36, and Ryan McLean grabbed low net with a 27.5.

Wednesday night saw Erickson-Baldwin Insurance take home high-team with 22 points. Erickson-Baldwin is made up of Murray Barkus, Bud Baldwin, Larry Martinson and Tom Adams.

Meanwhile, Nick Obie continued his fine play by shooting a 3-under-par 33 to once again earn low-gross honors. Pat Foster captured low-net score honors with a 28.

Beaver Creek Golf Course captured the Wednesday night team championship for the first half of the season, while Stone Child College took second place. Taco John's and Bear Paw Credit Union finished tied for third and fourth but no tiebreaker could be determined as of yet because the two teams have not met in head-to-head competition.

All four Wednesday night teams will join the four Tuesday qualifiers in September's playoffs.

This week marks the start of the second half of the regular season and all point totals will start at zero. On Tuesday night the Elks Club is out and on Wednesday night D.A. Davidson and Michelob Light will have byes.

On Thursday night, D.A. Davidson cruised to the high team honor in women's league with an insurmountable 31 points. D.A. Davidson is made up of Shari Baltrusch, Karla Bolken, Dorothy Dugdale and Susie Pearson. Carrie Kato earned low-gross honors for the night with a round of 50, and Shauna Albrecht grabbed low-net score with a 34.

Sunday afternoon saw BCGC host its annual Men's Golf Association Calcutta Tournament. The event was a two-person 18-hole best-ball format and the team of Jim Kato and Dick Scharfe hooked up to grab first-place honors with a round of 57.

The team of Bob Peake and Ryan Mapes also turned in a round of 57, but Kato and Scharfe garnered first-place honors by capturing the second playoff hole. The team of Gene Harada and Kevin Olson came in third place with a 58.

Aside from winning the tournament, Kato also captured low-gross honors for the day with a 2-under-par 70. Gene Harada earned low-net honors for the tournament with a net score of 62. The tournament featured 17 teams and the purse was a 100 percent cash payout distributed among the top seven finishers as well as the top three for low-gross and low-net score.
