Monday, May 28, Green Valley
(white tees) – Monthly Medal

1st J.P. Thomas net 66

2nd Ian Brimble net 67

3rd Darren Stanton net 70

It sure is taking a lot longer than we thought for these greens to come back but unusually high rains for this time of year seem to have slowed progress. Other than that the course was in pretty good nick. At least those rains cooled things down for us!

Nice to see our mate Darren Stanton join us and didn’t he do well taking third place. Ian Brimble is winding down this latest visit and fired a great 67 for second. We are actually getting more ladies to join us on our Monday outings so if you and the wife are reading this, what are you waiting for? Couples are always welcome to play with us.

The lads had to give over to the gals for this medal and getting her second star was our May monthly medal winner, J.P. Thomas. She started playing golf about 2 years ago and has been improving consistently to now play off 21, so kudos to J.P. We even had an extra small Antigua TGC shirt to fit her tiny frame!

Friday, June 1, The Emerald (white tees) – Medal

1st Bob Wade net 73

2nd Jeff Evans net 77

3rd Scott King net 79

What started out as a casual breakfast here at TGC ended up a mad rush to get in the van. Out of nowhere, a big downpour hit us just as we were loading up the golf bags so off we went a big more soggy than expected.

We had a small turnout of just 2 groups today and greeted newbies from Australia on this trip. There was a group decision to change the format to medal play, even in these wet conditions, so for the next 6,024 yards, every shot counted! After the first 5 holes conditions improved greatly and for the rest of the day the course was in decent shape.

J.P. Thomas.

Bob Wade was the leader of the Sydneysiders and his net 73 took first place. Second was Jeff Evans four back on 77 and my buddy from Tennessee, Scott King, nabbed third. Near pin was all Phil O’Halloran and everyone decided that the day should be for our Caddy Smile project so all prizes were given back to the cause. Thank you so much gentlemen. Phil even had a photo of his Emerald caddy Khwan as a future recipient so watch this space for her progress and treatment updates.
