Tyler Brungardt claimed the honor of being the 2011 men's champion at the Yucca Ridge "OPEN" this past weekend and adds his name on the wall at Yucca Ridge Golf Club. With consistent play of 37 on three 9-hole rounds, Brungardt turned in a 9 over par 149 for the 2-day 36-hole tournament. Coming in second was last years winner Robbi Jackson 2 strokes behind at 151. Filling out the championship foursome were Conner Warren and John Humble, shooting 157 and 161, respectively.
On the women's side Kathy Swartz earned top honors as ladies champion at the Yucca Ridge Golf Club "Open". This is the third win for Swartz at Yucca Ridge, who turned in a 176 for the two days of play. Swartz was followed by Mindi Ormiston taking second.
"Playing much of the time in near 3-digit temperatures over both days, it was a good test of the players' endurance. They had a good time and thought the course was in good shape considering the dry summer," said Trent Kitch, course superintendent.
