Jomtien Golf with the IPGC

Monday, August 1, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

The weather is a bit dubious as we head up on the seven towards Mountain Shadow but as we arrive the clouds disperse slightly and everyone enjoys a good round of golf in gentle conditions.

There are only two divisions out today and the cut is 7-20 in division 1 and 21 plus in division 2. The French boy, Jean Morel wins division 1 with 32 points and Peter Seward is second one point behind.

After three weeks off duty from his employment in Kazakhstan, Tom Novak, playing off 24 wins division 2 with 40 points. Brian Ferringo is in second place with 24, beating Ian Hart on a 15/11 back nine countback.

Friday, August 5, Eastern Star – Stableford

Our busiest day of the week with seven groups out today. Everybody’s opinion is that the Eastern Star greens are still improving each week. As we have more than 24 players, nearest the pins come into play. It is a very hot day here with hardly any breeze whatsoever.

In division 1 today the cut is 7-17 and 18 plus in division 2 and 34 is the best score recorded in both divisions. Jon Lay wins division 1 with 34 points. Barry Copestake comes second one point behind and Bill Bertram is third with 31 points beating Frank McGowan and Tony Thorne on a 17/16/14 back nine countback.

The organiser takes podium position in division 2 with 34 as well. In second place on 33 and always hitting a different fairway from where the tee is placed, Mr. Zig Zag alias Cully Monks is second with 33. Crash helmets will be issued next week to the groups in front of him. Tony Holehouse is third on 31.

A memorable day for Jon Lay playing off 7 taking three nearest the pins in division 1 and the only two as well. Glyn Evans and Jim Lane get rewarded for nearest the pins on the 3rd and 13th while there are no two’s in the second division.
