Tres Rios was in perhaps the best condition that I have seen it lately. Amazing what a little rain will do for the Desert. Fairways were good mostly covered with great grass and the greens were all good I thought and held well. High temp for the day on the course hit only 88.  In fact I liked it so well I won with a 62 net. This time I didn’t hit the wrong ball or any of the other stupid things I can do on a golf course. To coin a VGA phrase, I was “Luckier the Bosiak” If I hit into a tree down the fairway It went through and magically appeared on the fairway on the other side. So I accepted the luck, the fate, what ever it was and come home smiling. In second place and playing a new rack of Forged irons and other amazing stuff he doesn’t even need because he is the one to beat gross wise every time. Danny Campos came in with 4 birdies and a gross 66 with a net 63. Sorry Dan you deserved it. Third place at 64 net was Jim Bays, who by the way sold me the Bridgestone E6 balls I played with today. Thanks Jim they worked well for me. Next up Superstition Springs so try it out if you haven’t played it. Rest of the field scores below.
