John Dearden (center rear) hands over a donation of 130,000 baht to the Camillian Center in Rayong. The money was raised at last month’s JTB Charity Classic golf tournament held at Green Valley.
Ah, to the title match! Throughout history there have been classic mano-a-mano match-ups going back to Hector and Achilles, Napoleon and Wellington, certainly David and Goliath, and who can forget Louis and Schmelling. And now we have ‘Broadmore’ Bob and ‘One-ball’ George.
While newcomer to the Pattaya golfing scene, and golf itself, Phil ‘keeps-u-fit’ Thomas, one of Leicestershire’s top anglers, put together a solid 7 points on the outer nine but could not keep it up to add to his total on the inner nine, ‘Broadmore’ and ‘One-ball’ carried on and a swell joust it was as Broadmore put a 31-point licking on Oneball’s 23.
Saturday, June 29, Green Valley – Stableford
1st Jim Bell (17) 37pts
2nd Brad Sproxton (13) 35pts
2nd Chris Davison (14) 35pts
It was a short week thanks to the much anticipated Freddy Starbeck’s birthday bash played at the Plutaluang Navy Course (Happy birthday Freddy from all at the Players Lounge).
With only Saturday for the lads to ‘strut their stuff” the race for the title slot lacked its usual luster. No stranger to the big font, Jimmy AK-47 Bell won the man of the match honours with a rock solid 37 points. Jim was also the only competitor to better his handicap.
Newcomers Brad Sproxton and old friend Chris Davison were welcomed to the society as they shared the second place on the podium. The GM has decided that count backs are not required and the spoils were shared equally.
The society welcomed Mark Wood and Big Gareth Gill as they returned from that devil called work.
