Gardner on top at Mountain Shadow


The Jomtien Golf Society

Monday, June 25, Mt. Shadow – Stableford

Another empty course again today and an early tee off with nobody in front at all. Bruce Gardner took the win with 33 points and with a 20/17 back nine count-back, Paul Young placed second ahead of John Carlin in third. John Doyle was the last man in the podium in fourth with 25 points.

There were no near pin winners in division 1 but for the first time ever, with us an exact distance for two players on the same green, Ray Daws and Bruce Gardner shared the prize in the second flight on the 5th hole.

Bruce Gardner had the sole birdie ‘2’ in either division.

Wednesday, June 27, Khao Kheow – Stableford

Today we were allocated the C and A nines at Khao Kheow and playing off 14, Nik Evans returned the best score of 34 points. Paul Young took second on 33 and in the frame again was Bruce Gardner placing third on 28, just one ahead of Bob Poole in fourth.

Nik Evans and Bob Poole were the near pin winners in division 1 and John Doyle was the only winner in division 2.

Bob Poole birdied A5 with a rollover and in division 2 there was another rollover to Crystal Bay on Monday.

Friday, June 29, Eastern Star – Stableford

Another seven weeks before the clubhouse renovations are completed but we all can’t see what’s going on at the moment. Out on the course there were some amazing pin positions today, which some of the members have never seen before, and this was reflected in the scores.

The equal cut in the two divisions today was 10-18.7 and 18.9 + and there were two 35’s coming in; Colin Aspinall scoring one of them to win division 1 with John Carlin in second one point behind, Jerry Sweetnam in third on 33 and Ray Daws fourth with 32.

Frank Kelly was the winner in division 2 with the other 35-pointer, with Bruce Gardner coming second on 34, Glyn Evans third on 31 and Hennke fourth with 30 points.

Near pins went to (Div 1) Marc Brunner and Jerry Sweetnam (2) and (Div 2) Colin Aspinall, Paul Butler and Ray Daws.

John Seton, in division 2, birdied the 6th for the only ‘2’ of the day while there was a rollover in division 1 to next Friday.
