Lick, Harle cash

at PGA pro-am

MOSES LAKE – Kevin Lick of Sunnyside and Ron Harle of Prosser cashed at this past Monday’s Central Washington chapter of the PGA pro-am event staged at Moses Pointe Golf Course.

Both golfers were playing for the Black Rock Creek Golf Course squad. A total of 182 professional and amateur golfers competed in the one-day tourney. The competition was the 19


of 24 pro-am tournaments that comprise the 2006 Les Schwab Tire Centers Pro-Am Series.

Lick, a 2005 Sunnyside High School graduate, carded the third lowest round of all the amateurs on Monday. He fired a 2-over-par 74.

The low amateur round was claimed by Dan Whitaker, representing Toppenish’s Mt. Adams Country Club. Whitaker shot an almost unbelievable 11-under-par 61. That follows his stellar performance in this past weekend’s Yakima Amateur Golf Tournament, where he finished first with rounds of 64-64-67.

Harle cashed in Monday’s pro-am tourney by tying for top honors in the net scoring column for amateur division No. 2 golfers. He shot a handicap-aided 66.

The low professional round turned in Monday at the Moses Lake golf course was a 5-under-par 67, notched by Mike Kasch Jr. of Pasco Golfland.
