PSC Golf from The Bunker Boys
Monday, July 1, Pleasant Valley – Stableford
1st Jimmy Carr (16) 47pts
2nd Robby Watts (9) 44pts
3rd Mashie Kaneta (16) 34pts
We started off a new month of golf with a rainbow format at the Pleasant Valley course. Which was surprisingly in poor shape, in particular some of the greens were very shabby and require a lot of remedial work.
Scoring today was exceptional and Jimmy Carr took the win with forty-seven points. It was a remarkable performance tee to green with putts dropping from everywhere. Robby Watts had to settle for second place with forty-four points and an indication of how crazy scoring was, it was a full ten strokes back to find Mashi Kaneta in third place on thirty-four.
One near pin each went to Barry Murnin and Gary Smith with Robby taking two.
Wednesday, July 3, Pattaya C.C. – Stableford
1st Gerry Cooney (21) 39pts
2nd Tony Robbins (21) 34pts
3rd Chris Delamare (1) 31pts
After several weeks off in the countryside, Gerry Cooney returned to the Bunker Boys today and brought his A game, with him taking first place with thirty-nine points, including twenty-three on the front. Another septuagenarian, Tony Robbing, suddenly found some length off the tee and returned a decent score of thirty-four in second place whilst the relatively youthful Chris Delamare took third with thirty-one.
Chris also displayed pinpoint accuracy on the par-threes and snared three out of the four, the fourth went to the delinquent fund.
Friday, July 5, Pattavia – Medal
1st Paul Smith (4) net 66
2nd Robby Watts (8) net 72
3rd Chris Delamare (1) net 72
4th Stuart Brown (9) net 73
On our arrival at the Pattavia course the rain was still falling and continued for another two hours – the prospect of play didn’t look good. Eventually, at about 1.00pm the rain finally stopped and play commenced under grey skies and with no wind.
All the top guns fired today and dominated the winner’s circle. Paul Smith off a handicap of four took first place with a score of two under the stick, including four birdies for a net sixty-six. After a very poor start over the first six holes, Robby Watts recovered to take second place with a net seventy-two, edging out Chris Delamare on countback. The final place in the winner’s circle went to Stuart Brown in fourth place with a net seventy-three.
The near pins came from the same group with Chris Delamare and Stuart Brown with one each and Paul Smith took two.
