'Stangs still in links contention

By Neil H. Devlin, Mullen Sports Information Director
Brady, Mullen remain in the 4A Championship chase; Round 2 is Tuesday at a pretty City Park G.C.
There is work to be done for Mullen after the first round of the Class 4A Championship.

The good news is the Mustangs are in a position to do it.

After ­Monday’s opening round at the newly remodeled City Park Golf Course on one of those fall days
that makes one thrilled to be living in Colorado, the Mustangs found themselves in 10th place in the team chase and its top player, Ryan brady, tied for 16th.

They are within range -- 22 strokes off the team pace and Brady is only six back of the individual leader.

With a 5-over-par 75, Brady, a sophomore, made his turn – each Mustang went off on No. 10 tee – at 38, 2-over. He overshot the green at No. 1 with his approach and landed in a bunker. His blast out of the sand went past the pin, leading to a 3-putt for a double-bogey-6, but he played his final seven holes in even-par, including a birdie on the No. 8, 182-yard par-3.

Karr, a junior, ballooned a bit on his opening nine with two double-bogey 6s for a 43, but gathered himself on the front nine with a 2-over 36, notably a birdie-3 on the short (331-yard) No. 6.

Hawes also opened with 43 and the senior capped it with 41. Newton, a sophomore, just missed figuring into the scoring – three scores per team count – with his 85, including a three-shot improvement (44-41) in coming home.

Bradley Weinmaster’s 69 leads the field as the Riverdale Ridge sophomore had the only sub-par score and turned in three birdies on the challenging greens. He also led the Ravens to a 6-over 276, six shots better than second-placed Cheyenne Mountain.

Karr (9:18 a.m.) and Brady (10:03) will begin Tuesday’s round on the front side; Hawes (9:36) and Newton (9:54) will open on No. 10.
