Brian Ringering takes the Desert Peaks Men's Club title for the 16th time; first championship came at age 17

BRAD MONDOY  - Brian Ringering captured his 1th men's club title at Desert Peaks Aug. 13-14. Maybe it's time to change the name to the Brian Ringering Invitational.

For the 16th time, Brian Ringering has won the Desert Peaks Men's Club Championship at Desert Peaks Golf Course in Madras.

Ringering shot a five-under-par 139 over the 36-hole tournament, played Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 13-14, to win the A Flight title by eight strokes. Donnie Bagley Jr. and Johnny Wilson tied for second with scores of 147.

Ringering first won the Madras golf course men's league tournament as a 17 year-old.

In all, 30 players entered the tournament, which this year was sponsored by Gary Gruner Chevrolet.

"We'd really like to thank Gary Gruner for sponsoring," said club president Brad Mondoy. "Everyone very much appreciated the sponsorship."

Ed McDaniel and Jason Bjorklund, with rounds of 152 and 175, respectively, took fourth and fifth.

Kyle Devine won the net competition among the A Flight. Devine carded a net 133, just enough to nip Jordan Say, who finished with a 134. Carl Daniels was third in net with a 138. Francisco Morales and Travis Alire were fourth and fifth, with scores of 141 and 144.

While coming up just short in the net scores, Say's monster driving took the long drive honors for A Flight for both days of the action. Morales won closest-to-the-pin on day one while Bagley took the honors on Sunday.

Amare Jones shot a 155 to cruise to the B Flight gross score title. Russ Scholl was next in line at 162, just edging third-place Brent Schulke who carded a 163. Elvin Frank shot a 165 for fourth and Don Kraus took fifth with a 171.

In net competition in the B Flight, Owen Danzuka Sr. carded a 132, topping runner-up Frank Reese by three strokes. Rich Madden took third with a 144. Rich Vigil and Andrew Fine tied for fourth with net rounds of 145.

Long drive in the B Flight went to Frank on Saturday and Jones on Sunday. Schulke took KP honors Saturday while Danzuka did the trick on Sunday.
