McGoveran, Wilson Shoot +3.7, Share 1st pl. @ Emerald Falls

Tulsans Ed McGoveran and Dell Wilson survived the brutality at the new Emerald Falls GC in Broken Arrow, OK to share first place money at the tour's third event of the 2008 season. The last two holes proved to be the difference as always on our tour as Trey Coursey (2.7 hcp)was the leader going into the par five 18th...Trey met his demise when he dumped his third shot into the water from 135 yds and carded a double bogey to finish at 77.3. Meanwhile, "Steady Eddie" (4.3 hcp) as we call him, bogeyed four of the last five holes while Dell Wilson (2.3 hcp) pars four of the last five holes to create the tie at 75.7. Mike Brownell (6.4) carded a 76.6 in another hard luck round that featured a hot start at -1 thru five holes before recording an 8 and 7 back to back on the par 4 6th and 7th...It marked the third consecutive time Mike has finished out of the money by less than 1 stroke.
