Cummings wins again, Baker cans a hole-in-one


PSC Golf from the Phantom Golf Society

Monday, Feb. 15, Pleasant Valley – Stableford

We had another good group signed up to play Pleasant Valley with 29 on the starting sheet and on a fine Monday morning we departed Pattaya at 8.30am and made our way through the traffic and onto No.7, arriving at the course 40 minutes later.  It was fairly busy there so we had a bit of a wait but were able to send our first group away 5 minutes early at 9.55am. 

The weather was good but somewhat overcast but the threatening rain stayed away and although hot & sticky it was perfect golfing conditions with the course being in good shape although the greens were quite slow.  The pace of playing was not too bad and most of our groups completed their rounds in about four and a quarter hours.

Once again it was the recently arrived Dane, Jacob Cummings, who stole the show in A Flight by winning with 40 points, just one point ahead of Jim Groves in second place.  Mike Allidi showed his class by going round in par and finished third with 38 points and with two golfers on 37 the count back resulted in Christian “Psycho” Boysen (18 point second nine) finishing fourth from Dennis Steele (15 point second nine) who just missed out.

Thirty three points was good enough to win the B Flight and it was Odd Holm-Hansen who took that honor and another count back was required to sort out second, third & fourth places.  This gave Colin “Donkey” Davis (18 point second nine) second spot from “Aunty” Lorraine Percy (14 point second nine) in third place and John Tallett (13 point second nine) was fourth.  We must also mention Steve Baker who bagged a hole in one on the 17th and this was Phantom Golf’s second one in 12 days.  Well done Steve!

Friday, Feb. 19, Mt. Shadow – Stableford

It was a huge turnout on this day at Mountain Shadow with 47 players on the starting sheet and with a 10.00am tee time we arrived at the course in plenty of time after a 40 minute drive.  It was reasonably busy but our first group got away about 10 minutes early in fine but hot conditions.

The golf course was in excellent condition with the greens fairly slick but by the look of the scores afterwards, with the exception of one player, Mountain Shadow was definitely the winner on the day.  The pace was good with very few delays and most golfers completed their round in around four hours and fifteen minutes.

The runaway winner with 42 points was Ed Wyckoff in A Flight and Christian “Psycho” Boysen came second on 33.  With 3 golfers on 32 points a count back was required to determine third place and this went to Peter Kelly (16 points on the second nine & 11 points on the last 6 holes), with Jeff Hosfield (16 points on the second nine & 10 points on the last 6 holes) and Jim Reilly (14 points on the second nine) just missing out.

Another count back was needed to find out the winner of B Flight with 2 players on 32 points and it went to Colin “Donkey” Davis (17 points on the second nine) from Barry Oats (15 points on the second nine) and Per Brandsrod was third with 30 points.

In C Flight the winner was Mikael Jansson with 33 points and second spot went to Odd Holm-Hansen with 29 followed by Nigel Harrison in third place with 28.
