I can't remember exactly how long Tom Yeager has been a Metro member or how many tournaments he has won, but it was before Whiteford expanded to 72 holes (many are weeds now) and White Pines, The Legacy, Stone Ridge, Carrington and Red Hawk weren't opened yet--and we still played Hillcrest. Yeager has won plenty over the years and his 4 birdie round of 36-36-even par 72 at Fostoria CC, enabled him to add to his list of Metro wins. Back to back birdies on holes #13 & #14 were key to his victory as Yeager encountered inconsistent sand on #18 which led to a double and opened the door for fellow competitors Terry Tyson and Jeff Godzak. Tyson made the turn at 1-under 35-38 for his round of 73, but bogeyed the 197 yard par 3 18th hole to finish a shot back. Godzak, with two twos on the front nine, bogeyed holes #15 and #16, to shoot 36-38-74 to finish 2 shots off the pace. Mike McCarthy and Joe Cline were 3 back with 75's.
In the Net Division, Doug Gust, 39-41-80 was birdieless, yet made 12 pars in route to his net score of 3-under 69. Late round doubles cost both Mike Root, 39-40-79, and Mike Smothers, 43-47-90, as both netted 2-under 70's. Root doubled #17 and Smothers #18, giving Gust the 1-shot victory. Yeager, Godzak and Duane Zitkovic were next with net 71's.
