PVMGA May tournament results

Bob Armstrong, Publicity

Even as temperatures climb, the Saturday morning battles continue. While the less stout-hearted of those among us skulk off in the night to seek cooler climes to the north, the remaining warriors prepare for the coming exposure to the ever-present sunshine and its blast furnace heat, filling coolers with ice cold beverages, donning wide-brimmed hats, liberally applying sunblock and adjusting course management plans to include the targeting of shaded areas on the sides of the fairways. (Of course, some of us merely stay indoors.)

Following are the most recent results from the Palo Verde Country Club Saturday men’s events:
