Roundup - Black Rock fifth at Buick Scramble

October 09, 2003


ORLANDO, Fla. - The Black Rock quintet led by club pro Dirk Schultz finished in a fifth-place tie following the opening round of the 20th annual Buick Scramble National Finals on Wednesday.

Schultz and his amateur partners - Rich Moyer, Denny Lowery, Scott Matheny and Larry Henry - carded a 15-under par 57, three shots behind the leaders from Plum Brook Country Club in Sandusky, Ohio in the gross division, in which 130 teams are competing.

"We played the par 5s in 7-under and went 8-under over the last six holes with two eagles," Schultz said. "We played pretty good after a slow start."

Much of the credit to the hot finish went to Matheny, who knocked in a 40-foot eagle putt on 16 and then finished with birdie putts from 18 and 15 feet on the last two holes on the Falcon Fire Golf Club course.


The group continues play today, with a 1:40 tee time, and Friday, with the top 24 teams making the cut for Sunday's nationally televised final on The Golf Channel.

The Waynesboro (Pa.) Country Club contingent led by club pro Rob Bostic and partners Chad Bricker, Jon Bricker, Brian Carroll and Ben Leonard, were in a tie for 77th place with a 10-under par 62 in the gross division.

In the net division (130 teams), Musket Ridge, of Myersville, Md., shot a 12-under 60 for a tie in 59th place. The team consists of club pro Mike Ahrnsbrak and amateurs Dave Sulley, Tim Ross, John Johnsont and Jim Sulk.

Tiger Woods, national Buick chairman, will be on hand to present the championship trophies Sunday.
