Bunker Boy’s first – a dead heat


Monday, August 1, Crystal Bay G.C. (B & C) – Stableford

The start of a new month saw two Japanese golfers, Takeshi and Mashi (Takeshi on his home turf), fighting it out right up to the 18th hole where a count back separated them. Takeshi just nicking it to take the runner up spot! Aussie Geoff Williams has found some form at last and won with a very impressive 40 pts which went very nicely with a near pin prize too.


1st Geoff Williams (17) 40 pts

2nd Takeshi Hakozaki (12) 39 pts

3rd Mashi Kaneta (12) 39 pts

Near Pin Winners: Colin Greig, Geoff Williams, Takeshi Hakozaki, Mashi.

Wednesday, August 3, Greenwood G.C. (B & C) – Stableford

Three new names took the prizes today, Tony Robbins winning with the best score of the day and it was nice to see old timer Reg Smart in the prizes after what seems like a prolonged absence.

Reg took the runner up place beating Barry Murning on a count back. Barry had to settle for third place but two near pin prizes made up for his disappointment!

Friday, August 5, Pattaya C.C. – Stableford

For the third game in a row we had another three new names in the winner’s enclosure and for the first time ever playing with the Bunker Boy’s we had a ‘dead heat’.

Nothing could separate Alan Sullivan and Lee Butler who both came into the clubhouse with identical scorecards and so had to share the spoils between them! Newcomer Martin Allard was pleased to be in the frame taking third place with a handy 38 pts.


1st Alan Sullivan/Lee Butler (12 & 15) 39 pts

3rd Martin Allard (24) 38 pts

Near Pin Winners: Barry Murnin, Eddie Martin, Lee Butler (2)
