Nice work Tom, I tried to distract you as much as possible didn’t work. Dennis Haigwood gets third place at 65 net for the day. Nice work guys.

Club West Course played pretty well today I thought but there was a lot of confusion with collecting the green fees, the holes had been changed around, they were using the old hole numbers but it came out pretty good for most folks. Danny Delgado playing hot still won today with a nifty 62 net. Keep it going, Dan. Rusty Silverman and Dave Dean played to a 66 net tie with the Golden Boy coming in second on a scorecard playoff. Dave Dean settled for 3rd place today even though he scored 5 birdies in the round. Watched him do it most birds I’ve seen for an individual player that I have played with. Well done Dave. The Legend Dan Clark racks up another Atta-A-Boy today he must have a shelf full of them. Fred Balwin scored an Eagle on the # 3 hole today, nice putt I’m told. I also putted for Eagle on that hole which I did Eagle the last time we played there but it was not to be. Got a Bird though. Aguila next Saturday so bring any shacks your want they don’t have any concession there yet. Rest of the field scores can be viewed here.
My oh my, Ron Amstutz came to play today and did he ever scoring a 60 net score for 1st place at a cloudy and cool Viewpoint course today. Must have had something good for breakfast this morning as he was on fire. Nice round Ron. Second place and walking the course and playing very steady golf Jim Belanger or as he is known to me Mark Belanger in with a 67 net. Nice work Jim and enjoyed the round with you and Tom Giljum. Third place goes to John Bucco with a 69 net and well done John. Atta-A-Boy goes to our past Presidente, Tom Hecocks with a 70 net. I know you were wearing your shoes today. Rest of the Scores are here.
If you didn’t get to play today’s event here’s a flyover view.
Jake Nicol pronounced Nichol showing more progress by taking first place at Troon North-Monument course with a 68 net score. Way to go Jake no easy task well done. Second place goes to none other than Robert Inman one off the winning pace at 69 net. Robert scored an Eagle on Monday at San Marcos for which he received nothing to see how golf gives and takes. This time you score big time way to go Bob. A tie for third place with John Bucco and Jim Niblack getting 70 net scores. John gets the third place money on the scorecard playoff and Jim settles for the Atta-A-Boy. Mr. Eagle Dave Dean picked up another Eagle on hole #5 known as “The Swale” take a look the Green and you will know why. Nice work Dave. Next, up for VGA, this Saturday is Viewpoint out in Mesa. A very fun and challenging little course try it you’ll like it. Rest of the field’s scores click here.
With 3 good birdies, Tommy of the no shoes Hecocks on a scorecard playoff wins the Union hills event today under cloudy skies. Tom and Mike Roether scored identical 68 nets but Tom got 1st place and Mike settled for a 2nd place using the scorecard playoff system. In third place and playing very well with his new driver shaft Bill Heller is hitting the ball much straighter lately finished with 66 net. Easier to see and find your ball in the fairway as I well know. Danny Delgado also playing well lately tied Tom Hebert for the Atta-A-Boy at 68 nets they agreed it required no playoff. Next, up for VGA, Wednesday will be the Troon North Monument course one of the finer courses we play. Get out and play eh? Rest of the field results click here.
Can you believe it Harley Ewing won it today at Kokopelli his personal nemesis course with a nifty 65 net. A course on which I almost had a heat stroke one Summer past. Even scoring 2 Birds on # 1 and #7. I played very well until taking a 7,6,6,8 on the last 4 holes. Oh well enough about me, Three other players came in tied at 71 nets. Gordon Lukert the Dean of VGA came in 2nd on the scorecard playoff beating out Dave Dean who got 3rd place and Doug Rankin who scored the Atta-A-Boy award. Kokopelli can be a tough track and I think it played that way today. Sad to hear Richard Brooks suffered a severe (11 stitches) cut on his leg from the bottom of a Golf club bag. He was ok to drive himself to the hospital after some remarkable first aid given by Jeff Stone and others at the course. We all wish you well Richard and hope to see you out playing with us soon.

The Golden Boy from PVAZ steps up again and takes the Francisco Grande event today with a scorecard playoff win over the Legend Daniel Clark. Both tied at 67 nets. Rusty also moved up to 1st place in the Saturday Big Dog competition as he moved past John Adair. In the third spot, Gordon Lukert took it with a one stroke off the pace 68 net. Hope you won at Snake as it appears the money ran out before it got to you. Well done, however. Tim Haight at 69 net scored the Atta-A-Boy.
Oh my, Doug Patterson is at it again and wins the VGA Legacy event with an outstanding 66 net today. Way to go D2. Tied at 67 nets, Richard Brooks takes 2nd on the scorecard playoff while also at 67 net Tom Giljum is in at 3rd place. Jake Nicol gets the Atta-A-Boy today and shall be known in this domain as Flying Eagle for his Eagle on hole number 8 today. This guy tells me he has only been playing golf for 4-5 months. We got a hidden gem in him. Played with him today and he hit two big blasts to get within 20-30 yards and holed the Eagle with a pitch shot nine iron. Worse yet I was fooling around on the lower left part of the green fringe and didn’t even get to see it go in. Next event up for VGA is Francisco Grande the San Francisco Giants old training ground in Casa Grande. If you haven’t played this one you should with its great history there and most of the time in great condition. Free lunch provided for us too. Good to see Jeff Stone back in town and playing with us again. I pulled a senior moment on him as I mistook him for Robert Inman uncle of Bradley Rinehart. I told him everyone in a golf hat looks like Robert Inman to me. Don’t think he bought it though. Anyway, welcome back Jeff and where are you Robert who was scheduled to play today. Also great to see Rich Golz out to visit us today back from two surgically repaired knees. Getting around quite well with his new racing cane. Rest of the field results are here.
