Ciano chips in for glory


PSC Blue Moose Golf Society

Monday, August 27, Pattaya C.C. – Stableford

Three groups of Moose golfers made their way to Pattaya Country Club on this overcast Monday.  Fortunately the rain held off and the round was played without intervention.

Richard Hall brought along his son, Anthony, visiting from the UK, while Joe and Billy joined the 3 ladies in a 5-ball.  Due to Jan oversleeping the group did not tee off until 8:00 a.m.  Gay had new clubs to use because of scoring well the week before.  No comments on the results.

Dale Murphy scored a new high of 43 points to come in first followed by Larry with 37 points.

Oiy had a birdie on the par 3 fifth with a 3 foot putt.  She left a 4-footer three inches short on the same hole the second time around and had to settle for a par.  Her score of 35 stableford points was good for third place.

Billy usually scores well on his first round of golf but not this week.  The par 5 third hole took its toll on his score card with double bogeys each time he played it.

Wednesday, August 29, Green Valley – Stableford

The Blue Moose monthly trophy was up for grabs this Wednesday and the Moose golfers arrived at Green Valley with high expectations.  Weather was great and the course was in good shape.

More discussions were had on the logic of the hole sequence – everyone was glad to not be walking.

Dale Murphy, the odds on favorite to win after posting several recent 40 point scores, had a letdown and came in with only 30 points.  However, he did win the near pin.  The winner with 35 points was Ciano Glavina who had a birdie, chipping into the hole from 50 yards.  His score came under question since the last nine holes he had played at Emerald only produced 2 points.  This was his first trophy win with the Blue Moose Golf.

Coming in second was Blue Moose owner Billy Thompson with 34 points who started slow before recovering with 8 pars in a row.  Matt Millar came in third with 32 points.

Gay Wilanan, the Blue Moose Manager, presented the trophy to Ciano while Billy is still asking how?  In the background Herbie was presenting his usual excellent spread for the remaining golfers.
