Club West

Tony Dalton and Grady McEachern tie at 62 net, but Tony prevails for 1st on the scorecard playoff. Tough luck for Grady twice, since he wasn’t in the player prise pot, no paycheck for the dude from Superstition Mountain. Great game though and 2nd place. In third and 2nd place money and playing very well lately, Steve Richter at 63 net. Gordon Lukert takes 3rd place money at 64 net. Great day at Clubwest weather wise. Better get some more water on the course as it is drying out in spots. Next up, Saturday April 23 2016 Aguila-w/city card 8;00 AM $ 44.00. Excellent course, get out and enjoy it.

Saturday April 16th, 2016-Viewpoint and 1st round of President’s cup for Saturdays.

Viewpoint

Gordon LukertI was matched with Gordon Lukert in today’s President’ Cup play looking to crush him early. There was none of that, he not only crushed me but the rest of the field too, with a 60 net and winning by four strokes. What can I say Gordon you played well. Knew it wasn’t going to go my way when he sunk a 60+ foot putt from off the green for Birdie. Ron Gunderson came in second at  64 net. Steady as always Ron. Third place went to John “Cheese” Pierce at 65 net. A little windy today too, but over all another great Arizona day. Next VGA event, Wednesday April 20 2016 Club West GC 8:00 AM $ 45.00. Be there.

Danny Clark gets it done again. Finishes strong at 67 net to win 1st place. 2nd went to Ron Gunderson at 69 net to shot off the pace. Picked up the only good birdie. Nice work ye ole devil. Not enough golfers to pay 3rd place but Neal Fisel gets it for Big Dog points anyway. Maybe 645 am isn’t the right teacup for VGA players. Next VGA event, Saturday April 9 2016 Union Hills 8:00 AM $ 49.00.

Jeff Currie took the honors today at Cave Creek with a 64 net. Great work Mr. Currie. Tied at 68 net was Fred Baldwin who got 2nd on the scorecard playoff and in third was Al Dan. Nice job out there. Four guys lined up for Atta-Boys at 70 net but the coordinators didn’t want to go through the playoff for an Atta-Boy. Good thinking guys.
