Dale Roberts Highlights and Upcoming Events - Sep 10th, 2012
The 6th Annual Dale Roberts Memorial was scheduled on a near perfect day! Mid 70's and sunshine was enjoyed by all. The wind was a factor tough, keeping the scores a little higher than year's past. It was awesome seeing 78 players take part in this event and remembering Dale Roberts. All of his family were very thankful and happy seeing the great turn out. On behalf of the family thank you all for your support!
Adam Hunt took a small lead after the first round shooting an 8 under first round. His lead would not last, as local Aaron Ulrich (moving up to Open from Advanced) caught him in the second round winning by one stroke. The best round of the day was a 9 under par shot by Justin Kingery (Springfield, MO) who ended up in a tie for third with Richard Why of Tulsa, Oklahoma. There was also a sweet battle in Advanced Grand Masters division that was won by Bruce Heidebrecht over Jeff Beth on the last hole. Justin Ausmus and Kevin Umbright in Intermediate also battled and had to play a sudden death tie break to decide the win. Congratulations Justin Ausmus for winning the show down! It was very exciting to see 5 women this year making up two divisions. Congratulations Janie and Brandy for your wins! For all of you who cashed great shooting!
