Cris Caruso and Justin Nashimoto tied for low gross with 73’s Friday. Mike Miller posted a 74 and Ron Rosin turned in another fine round with a 75. Ron Rosin (65) and Cris Caruso (66) placed first and second in the net score arena.
Golfing conditions must have been good as five golfers significantly beat the handicap odds maker. Gary Reibman stayed on a roll with a net 67 and Mike Wentrup also posted a net 67.
Dale Fitzhenry, Marty Howe, Mike Miller and Ken Vlah all took home a net skin while Cris Caruso won two gross skins and Mike Miller left with one.
#8 Lakes was (as usual) the cruelest hole on the course extracting bogey or worse from about half the field. The golf monsters must have been lurking around the sixth and seventh holes on the Arroyo course Friday. Both played close to bogey after the dust had settled. #6 Arroyo gave up only four pars, but gifted the field with three birdies. It got even by beating nearly half the field into double-bogey or worse. The average gross score for the day was 82.7. Average net was 73.1.
