Monday, April 23, Pattana G.C. – Stableford
We were playing the A and B nines today with the cut set at 6-17 and 18+ in the two divisions. The greens here were slightly slower on the A course but very slick on the back nine.
Nik Evans returned the best score of the day, winning division 1 with 36 points. Martin Grimoldby was second on 35 and Paul Butler was on the podium again, this time in third with 33 points.
Rick Assi topped division 2 with 34 points, one ahead of Alan Bissell while Andre Van De Laan pipped Steve Harris on a back-six count-back of 10/8 to take third place with 28 points overall and 14 each on the back nine.
Near pins went to (Div 1) Paul Butler, Bob Poole and Dennis Scougall, and (Div 2) Rick Assi, Alan Bissell and Steve Harris.
With a few ‘2’s rollovers in division 2, Steve Harris was a happy chappy with a birdie on B3 and in division 1 there were two rollovers to Plutaluang.
Wednesday, April 25, Plutaluang – Stableford
We always play two or three rounds on the North and West nines and then one game on the East and South course and that is where we were today. It was a tough test of golf with the greens so slow it was unbelievable.
We had a different cut from Monday with 14-17 in division 1 and 18+ in division 2 and an amazing 33 points was the highest score of the day, with Dennis Scougall winning division 1. The Khao Yai boy, Tim Hake, was second with 29 points and Paul Butler third with 27.
Theo Bahrt with 31 points won division 2, with Gil Phillips second one point behind and with a measly 25 points Leo Adam was third.
Near pins were claimed by (Div 1) Paul Butler, Tim Hake (2) and Dennis Scougall, and (Div 2) Peter Davies, David Phillips, Gil Phillips and Allan Robartson.
More rollovers in division 1 in the ‘2’s but in division 2 Gil Phillips birdied the 5th on the East course.
Friday, April 27, Eastern Star – Stableford
The forecast here today was not too promising but all groups survived before the horrendous storm started just on our way home back to Jomtien.
The majority of the fairways had been holitized so ‘pick clean and place’ came into play on the fairways and fringes.
Two 37 scores came in with Dave Stockman recorded one of those to win division 1, one ahead of Mikael Andersson in second on 36. Peter Seil took third with 35 points and in fourth place was Frank Kelly with 32.
Alan Bissell was the winner in division 2, with Tony Thorne second six points behind on 31 and Theo Bahrt beat Glyn Evans on a 16/14 back-nine count-back after they both came in with 30 points.
Near pins went to (Div 1) Mikael Andersson, Dave Stockman and Pete Sumner, and (Div 2) Colin Aspinall and Theo Bahrt.
No ‘2’s today in either division so four rollovers here next Friday.
We had some very sad news for Jomtien golfers today as we heard of the passing away of Fred Temminick.
