Allidi posts low gross at PSC monthly


Pattana B & C was the choice for this, the 145th PSC monthly golf tournament, held on Wednesday, Sept. 9, and with a reduced field of 70 golfers it was a little surprising that there were not more people signed up to play this fine golf course.  It was actually disappointing to see that there were originally 74 golfers signed up but 4 decided not to attend without any prior notification.

PSC Golf Chairman Maurice Roberts, along with Peter Blackburn, Dick Warberg, Marcus Earp and Gerd Riedler were at the course early to prepare for the players arrival, together with the Pattana staff who were on hand and extremely helpful.  Thanks also go to Tom Herrington who took the winners’ photos.

On this occasion the A Flight played medal off the white tees, B Flight played Stableford off the whites and C Flight also Stableford but off the yellow tees, while the Ladies/Seniors flight played Stableford off the red & silver tees.

The Low Gross winner on the day was Mike Allidi (h/cap 3) who carded a fine 76 gross.  A Flight was won by Anders Pedersen (9) who had a net 69 while the B Flight winner was Jan Lehtinen (17) with 41 points.  Don Carmody (27) topped the C Flight with 37 points and in the Ladies/Seniors flight it was Jim Elphick (26) who came in first with a steady 36 points.

The presentation and prize giving was this time held at Hotel Dania on Soi Buakhao and the food was terrific and plenty of it.  Many thanks go to Alex & his staff for an excellent buffet.

Peter Blackburn welcomed all and introduced Golf Chairman Maurice Roberts who expressed his appreciation to the day’s players and those who assisted him at the course and to the PSC office staff for the pre-tournament work.  Maurice did point out once again that it was necessary to have both players & markers scores on the scorecard and each scorecard must be signed by player and marker.  He also asked everyone to please present themselves at their allocated tee at least 10 minutes before their scheduled tee time.

Peter then announced the winners and Maurice, Dick & Andre presented the prizes followed by the Lucky Draw and 50/50 Draw, the latter being won by Nat Rukkid.
