Jomtien Golf with the IPGC
Monday, April 16, Eastern Star – Stableford
The craziest week of the year here and for some of our lads who had not gone away or into hibernation for the week they needed a game. A holiday price today so obviously we were at Eastern Star and with a few overnight cancellations we only went out with two divisions and the cut was6-16 in division 1 and 17 + in division 2.
We are still being told by the management that the greens will be highly improved in the next 21 days, so we will keep everyone updated.
Mike Missler and Rod Howett, 1st and 2nd division winners at Eastern Star on Friday.
Alan Griffiths, playing off 11, shot a gross 38 on the back nine to score 22 points and with 15 on the front he won division 1 with 37 points. A great round Alan! Frank Kelly was second one point behind and Chris Voller took third on 34.
Iain Walsh with 34 points beat Mauri Friman on a 19/17 count back to win division 2 and Walter Webber was third two points behind.
