Neal Fisel won the Monkey’s behind award (not spelled exactly that way) for the highest net score today at Torres Blancas in very blustery winds today. Thanks to Doug Rankin for the pic.

 

This creature actually came on to the Course at Torres Blancas and asked for Gordon by name? Something biblical there. Ron Amstutz was gracious and brave enough to take the picture.

The John Peirce Green Valley Invitational tournament was held on Memorial Day weekend. The four day event began on Thursday with a practice round at Canoa Ranch, the first tournament round at Torres Blanca under very windy conditions, the second round at San Ignacio, and the final round back at Canoa Ranch.

The A Flight tournament was unbelievably close with only six strokes separating the first six golfers. Jim Flodin shot an opening round net score of 67, slipped a little on day two to 77, but returned to good form with a closing round of 71 and a winning net total of 215. John Adair claimed second place with net scores of 74, 73, and 69 to finish one stroke out at 216. Tom Hecocks finished third with net scores of 73, 67, and 77 for a total of 217. Dan Campos and Tom Giljum both finished with a net total of 220 with Campos claiming fourth place using a tie-breaker and Giljum settling for fifth. Dan Delgado finished sixth and out of the money with a 221 net total.

The story in the B Flight tournament was Gordon Lukert. Lukert shot net scores of 70, 73, and 68 for a winning net total of 211 – all at the age of 84! John Pierce claimed second place with net scores of 76, 69, and 70 for a net total of 215 giving the “old men” a one-two finish. A much younger Fred Baldwin finished third with net scores of 72, 78, and 70 for a net total of 220. Ken Baca took fourth with net scores of 72, 71, and 79 for a 222 total and Ron Amstutz slipped to fifth with net scores of 70, 76, and 84 to finish with a total of 230. By the way, Uncle G played all four rounds at Green Valley and will be 85 in a couple of weeks on June 13. You may think that he was born on Friday the 13th, but June 13, 1932 was a Monday.
