It was ball golf course first for the Open divison at the MPO A Pool started at Mulligans for a hopeful low scoring affair.
- Tied in first through 18 holes are Nate Sexton and Ricky Wysocki at 10-under par total. Sexton didn’t find a bogey until going OB on hole 18, and Wysocki was the only player to birdie six of the final seven holes.
- In the four-way tie for third, one stroke behind the leaders at 9-under par, Kevin Jones, Calvin Heimburg, and Idaho’s Dallin Blanchard recorded four bogeys and six OB strokes collectively over the final four holes. Meanwhile Thomas Gilbert went 10-under par to finish his round after starting 1-over through three holes.
- Gregg Barsby and Mason Ford are two of 12 players tied in seventh at 8-under par. They had the only two bogey-free rounds in the top 18 players.
- Anthony Barela is one of four players tied in 19th at 7-under par, and he was able to score that well with six OB strokes. His OB rate is currently tied with Jeremy Koling and Matt Bell for worst in the top 51 players. Barela’s 5.42 strokes gained from tee-to-green leads the division by 0.41 strokes better than the next best player.
