New Names Lead UGA 2-Man Championship
Robert Smart and Ryan Brinkman, two names you’ve never seen on the top of a UGA leaderboard, combined efforts in the first round scramble format to shoot eight under par and take the lead in the UGA 2-Man Championship at Sand Hollow Saturday. Furthermore, it is not just a lead, but a four shot lead, and the nearest duo chasing them, Jake Firkins and Jared Bickling, are from Colorado.
In third place, five shots out of the lead, is a well known pairing of former Utah State Amateur champions, Dan Horner and Darrin Overson. They are tied with Keith Humerickhouse and Darrell Carr, another duo from Colorado.
The men’s senior division is a tight battle between well known former champions of this event. Steve Brinton and Kurt Bernhisel, who won the title several years ago, shot four under par and have a one shot lead over Richard Cropper and Dick Peacock, a duo that has won the event the last two years.
Monica Vigil and Deeann Stout-Nowell lead the women’s division by three shots. They are also newcomers to UGA leaderboards.
The final round will be Sunday at Sand Hollow and the format will be a 2-man four-ball.
