PVMGA tournament results

So, once again, at high noon on May 9, the members of the Palo Verde CC and the Cottonwood CC were treated to a demonstration of golf played well when our assistant pros competed in a “Skins Game,” this time held at the CWCC course. The winner of the event was our own Joey Forsythe – Congratulations, Joey! Of course, the real winners were the members.

A Home and Home tournament with SunBird Golf Club took place on April 13 and 15. A good time was had by all, and the victors, in a very close finish, were Lew Lepore and Howard Anderson of SunBird and Ken Verbeck and Ivan Shaw of Palo Verde, with a total score of 203.

An afternoon Scramble on April 25 was narrowly won by Scott Demichael, Ed Johnson and John Kuchera who finished with a score of 38.25.

The annual CMGA/PVMGA Ryder Cup Championship was held over the April 22-23 weekend. The Cottonwood crew were the eventual winners with a total of 77 points, winning 13 of the 23 matches. (We’ll get even next time!)

A Saturday, April 22, 2017, afternoon 2 Net BB’s match was won with a score of 104 by Mike Pasternak, Tim Lamb, Jerry Esget and John Lefebre.

Beginning on April 29, and still underway at the time of this report, was the PVMGA 2017 Match Play event. Scores were being posted at the Pro Shop, with several matches yet to be completed.
