Cafe Kronborg played at Pattaya Country Club on Monday and the course was in its usual condition, but with a few greens poorer than normal.  The cards showed that the course had proven to be a stern test with only one person beating their handicap and only two more playing to theirs.

There were 2 flights with the A flight winner being Brian Gabe who continued his hot run with a solid 36 points.  Apparently a Korean golf video has added yards to Brian’s tee-shots.  Second was Jon Dean with a very respectable 35 points, joining us for the first time in many years, and third was the consistent Peter Bygballe with 34.

In B Flight Kenny Chung was the winner with an excellent 37 points and the best score of the day.  Karen Brown came second with a sterling 36-pointer, continuing her improving game, while third was occupied by Torben Sorensen with 35 points, no write up would be complete without a mention of Torben.
