Tony Dalton is smoking hot lately as he scores a 63 net at Red Mountain Ranch. Now as anyone knows who has played that track, it isn’t easy by any means. A 76 gross score indicates the game he had today. Well done Tony. Second place goes to Larry Burton playing as steady as can be at 67 net. Third goes to Tim Haight working his way back to winner form. Dan Campos takes the Atta-a-Boy at 70 net. Next up

Tony Dalton finds his place in the sun today by winning the Arrowhead Country Club event at 70 net. Perhaps a vacation is good for the soul. In second place Gordon Lukert the Dean and self proclaimed Patriarch of VGA with a fine 72 net. Some rumors about the R being put back on his handicap, I hope are not true. Perhaps the Palmer spirit has taken over his body. Third place was very popular today, four players scored a tie at 73 net. Dave Dean got the last paycheck for 3rd place on the scorecard playoff. Well done Dave. Neal Fisel, Steve Richter, and Mike Roether share the Atta-a-Boy. Next up Camelback-Ambiente on Saturday another fine course to challenge your golfing spirit. Rest of the field scores below.

The Golden Boy, Rusty Silverman was a happy camper today. He closed out a great round with an Eagle on # 18 at Legacy and scored a very impressive 60 net score. In his own words about the Eagle, “Bombed 3 wood off the tee. Another 3 wood just short and chipped it to take Freddy’s money”. Well done sir. Three other players tied at 66 net. They were Doug Patterson who got 2nd place, Tony Dalton who got 3rd place and Tommy shoes or no shoes gets the Atta-a-Boy. All on a scorecard playoff. Course took a beating from heavy wind and heavy Rain. Ponds out there that no one has ever seen before. Over all very playable as always out there. Remember the O’Keefe cup, a match play event vs the Saturday Golf League is coming up. The Venue I understand it’s going to be at Antelope Hills in Prescott. Danny Campos tells me we have room for 24 golfers for this fun Match Play. O’Keefe will be watching. No date is firm yet but try to keep your schedule a little flexible. Wednesday we take on Arrowhead CC, so everyone should look forward to that. Rest of the fields scores below.

Beautifully Cloudy all day at Bear Creek Golf Course. Little too humid however. First place went to Larry Burton with a 66 net score. Great job Larry and thanks for picking up one of my lost balls today. Surprised you didn’t find more. Tied for 2nd, Bill Myers and Steve Richter at 67 net scores. Bill got 2nd on the scorecard playoff and Steve got 3rd place. Not enough players to pay out for 3rd today but I contributed to Steve’s IRA today anyway. Tom Giljum picked up the Atta-A-Boy at 68 net. Well done Tom. Next up on Saturday, Legacy should be a big field. Rest of today’s scores below.
Next up for VGA on Saturday Legacy at $39. Don’t miss that.
