ASPEN ” California no longer rules the MotherLode’s oldest men’s division.

Late Thursday, in the men’s over-50 final, the Florida team of Larry Dejerzo (Coconut Creek) and David “Del Ray” Posta (Del Ray) broke the streak of California titleholders with a win over fellow Floridian Kerry Kleppinger (Sarasota) and Pete Graham of Novato, California.

The Golden State still reigned in the men’s over-45 final, with Kenny Lentin of La Jolla and Chip Hollis San Diego claiming the trophy.

The women’s master division final (over 35) was arguably the most exciting of the day as perennial second-place finisher Kris Bredehoff of Englewood and partner Pamela Sorensen of Broomfield defeated Julie McGarr and Samantha Meador of Houston, Texas, in a tight three game match.

On Friday, the country’s largest pro-am beach tourney continued with co-ed and men’s masters (over-37) divisional play. Those divisions wrap up this morning.

The men’s and women’s open divisions as well as the amateur divisions begin play Saturday and continue through Sunday and Monday.
