Danny Delgado wins today at Ken McDonald with a 62 net, my God man you are good. The Golden Boy Rusty Silverman took 2nd place with 65 net. Way to go Rusty. Eddie Litte captured third place with a 66 net and Larry Burton came home with the Atta-A-Boy at 67 net. Some extra fun items in our group today, Bill Heller had the bad luck to hit 7 consecutive balls into the lake in front # 12 par three and finished with 18 on the hole. Haven’t seen anything like that since I took a 14 on number 10 at Ocotillo on another occasion. Some days are a stone for sure. Here’s another strange one for sure. I purchased some reconditioned Calaway Soft golf balls recently, and I noticed something didn’t look right. The ball had actually split, I’d like to say that I actually crushed this ball, but I’m thinking defective. Take a look what would you say? Next up for VGA Stonecreek on Wednesday.

The Sun hardly came out full strength this morning and in fact, we even experienced a few rain sprinkles bout halfway through. Weather and course were excellent. Tom Hebert was the man of the day as he charged in with a 66 net for 1st place. Whoa, Roc and I left early and just now found out I came in 2nd place. Much to my chagrin what with all the low 60 scores some of the guys have been putting up I didn’t think my 68 net had a chance. I’m a happy guy considering I was thinking about burning the clubs lately. Rusty Silverman came in with a 70 net tied with Richard Brooks who also had a 70 net. Rusty won third place on a scorecard playoff and Richard took home the Atta-A-Boy. Next up Wednesday Ken McDonald in Tempe. Remember it will be cart path only we’ve been told. Fun course so don’t miss playing it. Full results click here.
Fred is back and what a way to start off the new VGA fiscal year of 2018 with his 3rd hole in one this calendar year. He didn’t wait long as he did it on #2 hole. Didn’t see his hole in one dance but heard it was a good one. Got 1st place in the event too with a 63 net. Nice round Fred and thanks for the drinks too. Larry Burton playing his best on as he described as the best course he ever saw (sic) placed second with a 65 net. Nice work Larry. Third place goes to Tom Giljum with a 66 net. Great as always Tom.
