Above Par takes
By Lenny Roberts
Blamed on the wind and unusual
cold in the opening round of the 13th Sundowners Golf League
season a week ago, the worst overall scores in recent memory
Despite much better weather Tuesday afternoon at Soule Park,
the trend continued in week No. 2 when scores included nine nine-hole
rounds of between 47 and 49, and five rounds of more than 50.
And some of those high scores were posted by some of the league's
With 23 points from Brian Ramsey, 21 from newcomer Jerod Wallace,
and 20 from team captain Dave Cornell, Above Par jumped on top
of the pack with 64 points, taking an early nine-point advantage
over the Village Idiots, last week's leaders, and 10 over 2002
Callender Cup winners, #&?*!@$%. Two-time champs, Bopper's
Thumpers, follow with 107 total team points.
The Thumpers totaled 55 points - 20 from Jim Coultas, 18 from
Jacob Lusk, who played even par for the second straight week,
and 17 from the always-reliable Jim Doyle.
By shooting three under par, Wallace posted the 16-team league's
best round, followed by Doug Ragan's 34. Lusk and one-time Ojai
city champion Sam Williamson shot even-par, and Mark Ackerman,
Mike Urbanek and Scotty Davis each came in at one over par.
Ramsey's 23 were the most points by any of the 73 players who
showed up. Ackerman and Bill Hatch scored 22 points each, and
Wallace, and Mark Bartholemew, Ragan, Urbanek, Marshall Lopez
and George Ortiz each tallied 21.
