After teaming with Paul Smith to win the PSC Members Tournament on Monday at Laem Chabang with a massive team score of 49 points and an individual score of 42 points, Phil Davies kept his hot form going to take out today’s “A” flight and the Green Jacket, for which was he was the model for the tailor. In second place was John Pierrel, who is also playing good golf, scoring 37 points to win the countback over Dave Buchanan who once again had 72 off the stick.

“B” flight saw Tip Briney, still showing very good form, grab first spot with 37 points. Barry Elphick came to join us again and had a good day out by clocking up 36 points for second place, while Geoff Wallace, on his return, took third with 33 points.

Friday, July 19, Pleasant Valley – Stableford

1st Tony Boggian (17) 40pts

2nd Phil Davies (13) 37pts

3rd David McKey (19) 37pts

4th Paul Smith (3) 36pts

The society ended the week with a visit to Pleasant Valley for a stableford competition. The course was in good condition and the greens were not noticeably slow and playing from the blue tees made the course a testing challenge of 6,600-plus yards.

Paul Smith took fourth spot by winning a countback from George Mueller, on 36 points. Then, losing a countback for second place on 37 points was an improved Dave McKey. Beating Dave McKey was Phil Davies with his third sub-par round of the week, this time 37 points. That’s how it stood until the final group returned and newbie Tony Boggian, handicap 17, proudly submitted a forty-point card to take the win and his debut Green Jacket.

Near pins went to Eric “The Judge” Black, Wayne Peppernell, Mark Sharp and Phil Davies, whilst best nine awards went to Bill Stewart (17 points on the front nine) and Bill Copeland (21 points on the tight back nine).
