Results of Match 5:

Morro Bayís hopes for second round play wilted in the unrelenting Paso Robles heat Thursday as the good guys fell, 26 to 10. Only Lou Purio and Larry Rentler were able to secure wins, while Bill Subang and Malin Lebbad halved their matches. Once again, the pitfalls of life on the road befell us but all the players should be commended for battling through the blast furnace that is Paso Robles Golf Club in July.

Thereís still a mathematical chance with a win next week at Paso Robles Links and some help in the other match so we will soldier on in the quest for a win away from the comfort of our Morro Bay home.

Results of Match 4:

Despite giving an average of four shots per match to the Chalk team, the Morro Bay juggernaut rolled to a third straight win, 20 to 16 at Morro Bay. Marc Burgraff and David Jones led the way with sterling rounds of 70 and 71 respectively. Other winners included Ed Hurd (75), Jeff Blanchard (75), Mark Mahler (80), John Seidel (81) and Gordon Empey (81). Brent Jorgensen (75) lost a tough match giving five strokes.

Results of Match 3:

The depth of the Morro Bay team was on full display Thursday in a 29-7 win over The Links at Paso Robles. With stalwarts Jeff Blanchard, Josh Heptig and David Jones unavailable, Morro Bay didnít miss a beat in cruising to the victory. Winners included Morgan Brockman (74), Marc Burgraff (76), Gordon Empey (79), Mark Mahler (79), Ian Sorensen, Stu Weaver, John Seidel, Matt Dodge, Larry Rentler and Malin Lebbad.

Results of Match 2:

On an unseasonably cool day at Morro Bay, the home team moved into the win column with a decisive 26-10 victory over visiting Paso Robles Golf Club. Several back nine rallies turned what had been a close match into a comfortable finish. Jeff Blanchard (72) led a parade of Morro Bay winners that included Josh Heptig (74), David Jones (77), Doug Bugni (79), Larry Rentler, Mike Nielson and newcomers Matt Dodge and John Lalley. Marc Burgraff (76) and Sam Mangum halved their matches.

The win is gratifying but the reality is that we will not advance to the next round unless and until a road win is secured. But that will have to wait until after our next match at home against The Links at Paso Robles on June 29th.

Results of Match 1:

Notwithstanding a switch in allegiance by Joel Clay, the good guys fell to Chalk Mountain last Thursday, 25 to 11. Highlights for Morro Bay included a sterling 70 by Josh Heptig, including a near hole in one on the par 4 fourth hole; an approach shot to one foot on the eighteenth by John Seidel to secure a 1-up win; wins by Joel and the ever-reliable Doug Bugni; and a halve by Rob Hogrefe. In the category of sour grapes is the fact that several of our other players would have won had they not been giving multiple strokes to their respective opponents on their course. As always, thanks to everyone for playing and we will gear up for a home match against Paso Robles CC on the 22nd.
