By Gary Baines – 07/13/2019

Richard Bradsby of Lakewood Country Club, who teamed up with Jon Lindstrom to win back-to-back CGA Four-Ball titles in 2017 and ’18, is hoping to add an individual championship this weekend.

Bradsby and Barrett Jones of Eagle Ranch Golf Course matched 1-under-par 71s on Saturday and share the lead at the halfway point of the 37th CGA Western Chapter Championship at Battlement Mesa Golf Club.

Bradsby (pictured) made four birdies and three bogeys in round 1, while Jones chalked up six birdies and five bogeys.

Holding third place going into the final round is Roger Nakagawa of CommonGround Golf Course, a longtime member of the Hale Irwin Player Program at CommonGround, who chalked up a first-round 72.

Former champion Keith Humerickhouse of Gypsum Creek Golf Course, a four-time winner of the CGA Mid-Amateur, stands in fifth place at 74.

Scott Sullivan of Bookcliff Country Club, the men’s golf coach at Colorado Mesa University, leads by two in his senior division title defense. The recent CGA Senior Match Play champion carded four birdies and two bogeys on Saturday to shoot a 2-under-par 70.

Matt Hall of The Club at Redlands Mesa holds second place among the seniors at 72.

Lauren Murphy of Western Co E-Club holds a 13-stroke lead in the six-player women’s division after posting a 6-over-par 78.

Play will wrap up in all divisions on Sunday.
