Alameda Commuters Results rounds 1 & 2

Breezy and firm course conditions

lead to solid scoring at the



With firm and fast conditions, along with a slight westward wind, scores were a bit higher than usual in the 83rd ALAMEDA COMMUTERS GOLF TOURNAMENT. From the starting field of 224 players, who teed off over 36 holes on the Fry and Clark courses this past weekend, only 36 rounds were posted with under par scores.

After 36 holes, former CAL golfer and current SF CITY Champion, George Grandanata of Emeryville and Scott Olds of Oakhurst, lead the field heading into the final rounds April 24-25 at the Chuck Corica Golf courses. Both players stand on top of the leader board, firing 5 under par: 137.

Other notable players within striking distance, as play continues April 24th, include Moreau HS senior,

Carlos Briones at 4 under par 138, 4-Time Alameda Commuters champion Rick Reinsberg at

2 under par 140 and 2009 defending champion Travis Taylor at 1 under par, 141.

The Commuters caught up to 1987 and 1990 winner Ken Webb of Turlock who proclaimed…

”if there is one tournament I will always play in, it will be the “Alameda Commuters!” Ken fired

rounds of 77-76/153 and missed the cut.

Of the 224 players, the cut line for next weekend’s finals was a two round score of 146. Only the low 50 scores and ties make the cut. Reaching the final weekend in the “Commuters” is one of the toughest cuts to make and a true testament to the quality of players each year. Jack Cummings, PGA professional estimated that 146 would be that number after first round action: Jack heads the committee that sets up both courses for true championship golf. With tucked pins over bunkers, along with the firm and breezy conditions, players we tested early and often throughout all 36 holes. With this low cut score, only 9 strokes separate the leaders from the entire field
