Back in the clubhouse after a round of 4 hours and 10 minutes we welcomed James Carrick back from Las Vegas. The scores on the day were not great but in the beginning Kristin Helgason looked like he was going to run away with it but finished first with 37 points. Creaky Ronnie Ratte was second on 35 points and Dave Richardson third with 30.

It was that time of the month for stroke play at the delightful Pleasant Valley for the Cafe Kronborg Monthly Mug. We had an on-time departure with a 45 minute transit to the course. Tee-off was scheduled for 1000 but we managed to get away 40 minutes early. We finished in 3 hours and 50 minutes despite playing the last three holes in the middle of a shotgun start.
The course on the day was in very good condition and there was a bunker grooming tractor working in bunkers all day.
Back in the clubhouse we said farewell to Joe Vanderwegon back to Belgium early Sunday morning.
In a repeat of Monday’s podium, Kristin Helgason took the mug for his second win this week with a fine net 67, Ronnie Ratte came second on net 70, and Dave Richardson took third with net 72.
