Monday, Oct. 17, Burapha – Stableford
Conditions today were great with the testing C & D course made extra difficult with some thick rough, which complicated manners immensely for the higher handicap players.
In fourth place was Peter Stonebridge, beating Peter Nixon on count back but losing out in the same mathematical adjudication to Jimmy Little in third after all three players finished on 33 points. Sel Wegner scored a great ‘2’ on hole 17 and finished second behind Dennis Pelly who also recorded a ‘2’ and beat Sel on count back over the last three holes.
Tuesday, Oct. 18, Laem Chabang – Stableford
Playing the best combination of the spectacular A course and very difficult C course, Steve Mann led our group out to Laem Chabang for a good day out. Feedback suggested that the course was in great condition with the greens playing really well.
Colin Simpson came third today with 33 points while one ahead in second was Chris Kerr with 34. Steve Mann took the honours with 35 points and just about swept the pot after recording a ‘2’ as well.
Wednesday, Oct. 19, Greenwood – Stableford
Playing the difficult B & C courses it was a good day out like it normally is at Greenwood. However, we will likely give this course a skip for a couple of months as they have increased the prices a bit too much for our liking.
4 people finished today with 35 points: in third place, Stephen Watkins finally got into the prizes with 18 on the back nine, Booby Young (19 back-nine) placed second and victory went to Daniel Biel with 20 on the inward half.
Friday, Oct. 21, Green Valley – Medal
With Green Valley slowly getting better we had another large turnout of players battling it out for the coveted place to participate in the grand final in September next year. We were joined by our sponsors, Greg Hirst and Gordon Hall who participated in the prize handouts and everyone enjoyed the day.
Sugar Ray Handford so nearly grabbed the honours again and would have made it two wins in a row were it not for the heroics of Mick Beresford. Each with a fabulous score of 69 on the card, however, Micky just surpassed Sugar by getting a net 34 on the back-nine.
In the event that anyone does ever win the qualifiers twice, the “yellow jersey” will go to the second placed spot for the entry into the finals.
In joint third place today were 4 players on 71 net: Bob Mattes, Tony Oakes, Steve Mann and Bram Vijnveen.
There were only two 2’s recorded, with Gavin Perfect and Sugar Ray Handford getting one each. Paul Smith scored the lowest gross with an 82.
