Brad signs off in style


PSC Golf from The Outback Golf Bar

Monday, Oct. 27, Burapha – Stableford

Eighteen Outbackers played A & B in overcast but pleasant conditions and it was of no surprise that we were restricted to the cart paths so we winter rules were applied.  Despite no carts on fairways the course was in great condition as the top scores showed.

Running fifth with 34 points was Kim Danboise, while beating him on count back was the recently returned Murray Hart.  Brad Jordison (36) was third with Peter Nixon taking runner-up spot on count back to Bob St Aubin, both on 37.

1st Bob St. Aubin (12) 37pts

2nd Peter Nixon (12) 37pts

3rd Brad Jordison (06) 36pts

Tuesday, Oct. 28, Laem Chabang – Stableford

Our last scheduled visit to Laem Chabang until next year’s low season, was a very, very wet one, in fact it’s amazing that the boys got round.  The weather scared off a few but a big welcome to the guys from Sawtell who were in no doubt that they were going to enjoy themselves, come what may.

Joined by Brad Jordison, it was a very classy field with another Brad leading the way playing off 3.  The winner was Paul Herring (11) with 34 points, beating his mate Dave Angus on c/b with Brad Lewis in third on 32.

We said hello and goodbye to this great group of guys after spending most of the afternoon apres golf at the Outback with them and look forward to their return next year.

There were two ‘2’s from Dave Angus and Darren Blaikie.

1st Paul Herring (11) 34pts

2nd Dave Angus (16) 34pts

3rd Brad Lewis (03) 32pts

4th Brad Jordison (06) 32pts

5th Darren Blaikie (07) 29pts

6th Craig Blyth (09) 28pts

Wednesday, Oct. 29, Bangpra – Stableford

Regrettably the poor weather continues to affect the golfing numbers as conditions on the courses deteriorate still further.  Bangpra was just about playable although Bob St Aubin didn’t think so and Eddy’s attempt to play with a sore finger didn’t work either, as he had to withdraw.  Les Easton played a completely different course to the remainder as he romped home with 38 points to win by 10 shots over Greg Hill on 28 and Kim Danboise third with just 23.

There were no ‘2’s.

1st Les Easton (23) 38pts

2nd Greg Hill (18) 28pts

3rd Kim Danboise (15) 23pts

Friday, Oct. 31, Green Valley – Stableford

This day will be remembered not only as the day that Brad Jordison, playing his penultimate round of golf before returning to Aus, shot 39 points to win at Green Valley by four, but also for one of the fiercest storms ever seen in the Pattaya area, surpassing the one around the same time last year, which caused thousands of bahts worth of damage to the Outback’s television systems.  The hour and a half long spectacular thunder and lightning show struck at around 1.30 p.m., knocking out the power and turning Siam Country Road into a river as customers at the bar watched and listened in amazement.

Incredibly, all the groups except one managed to complete their rounds but were subjected to a hazardous drive back.  25 Outbackers started out and even after setting apart the players who could not play the finishing hole, the CSS for the day was three shots tougher than par.

Peter Nixon (35) was second and Kim Danboise (33) was third, even though he was one of the guys who didn’t play the last.  In Div B, the win went to Greg Hill on 35pts from Les Easton (33) and David Davies (32).

There were two ‘2’s from Geoff Stimpson and Brad Jordison.

Div A (0-17)

1st Brad Jordison (06) 39pts

2nd Peter Nixon (12) 35pts

3rd Kim Danboise (15) 33pts

4th Geoff Stimpson (06) 31pts

Div B (18+)

1st Greg Hill (18) 35pts

2nd Les Easton (23) 33pts

3rd David Davies (24) 32pts

4th Tim Knight (24) 31pts
