On an unusual late tee time start, but a glorious Saturday morning nevertheless, 29 Amigos Golf Club members and guests showed up to play the challenging River Ridge Vineyard course. A flight had a strong showing of 8 solid members which Doug Heller won by 3 strokes over 2nd place finisher Jaime Lopez. Doug's 2 over par was enough to also out distance Chuy Barragan by 7 and Goose Golfer by 9 and Al Perez by 10 strokes to round off the top 5 places for the A flight.

Amigo Nation would like to make a clarification for those new club members who may not know the difference between Gross and Net. Simply put the gross score is the raw score as it is and the net score is your raw score minus your handicap/index.
B Flight had another great turn out for the golf tournament at River Ridge Vineyard Golf Course. It was a spectacular beautiful day as any summer day here in the middle of winter.

First place gross champion was Rookie of the Year Angel Lopez with a very nice 85 score , Johnny Garza was one stroke back to capture 2nd gross. Perrenial contenders and new vice president was Hector Betancourt came in third gross, 4th gross was Nacho Corral Jr. and rounding off the fifth gross position was Joe Puga.
Mr. Goose Golfer
The River Ridge Vineyard golf tournament Money Shot putting contest was over almost as soon as it started. Contest coordinator Nacho Corral Jr and his assistant Manny Ayala noted that it took the first participant, Mr. Goose Golfer, just a third and final putt to drain a monstrous 50 foot side hill with a huge right to left breaker. It was an amazing feat that may have left many other Amigos golf club members too shy to try and match that putt. However, after 8 other amigos tried to sink the challenging putt, it was time for our golf tournament to begin. $115 was a very nice total to win and quite a way to begin any golf tournament says Amigo Nation. Oh well, for the rest of us there is always the next money shot contest!
