Friday’s turnout was bigger than normal and the competition was tougher. Mike Miller was on fire shooting an even par 72 with three birdies and three bogies. (How do you spell the plural of bogey? Not that I’ve never had more than one in a round.) Mike’s even par round wasn’t good enough to capture the low net title. That went to Raoul Encinas with a 64. It was a 200-to-1 round on the golf “odds-o-meter”. The course is looking better by the day and more golfers are drifting back form their summer trips.
- Raoul Encinas – 64
- Bruce Partridge – 66
- Mike Miller – 67
- Mike Miler – 72
- Harold Hoeg – 77
- Joel Temple, Dave Inman and Rick Brown – 78
Miller picked up three out of the five gross skins leaving one each to Harold Hoeg and Ron Rosin. Net skins was where the big money was with Bruce Partridge, Raoul Encinas and Ken Vlah splitting a $210 pot.
I am proud to say I personally won the high net score award – not an easy accomplishment. The other golfers were pretty steady with all 18 holes playing at under bogey. The average gross score was still 85.
