Hansen has the edge


PSC golf from Café Kronborg

Monday, Oct. 15, Century Chonburi – Stableford

Century Chonburi was the challenge today, just 1 hour up the busy 331 and we got off the first tee 25 minutes early under cloudy and humid conditions, catching a heavy shower of 25 minutes that stopped us after the fourth hole.  The course on the day was in fine condition, a bit wet after the rain but draining very quickly and great value for a 100 baht green fee.

It was a slow round today, 4 hours and 50 minutes to get around, and we had 2 flights with the cut coming at handicap 19.

Mike Allidi took the A Flight on a count back from Stu Rifkin in second, both on 34 points (gross 76 for Mike).  Ted Morris was third with 33 points and Niels Hansen fourth on 32.

Niels Hansen. Niels Hansen.

Dave Richardson topped the B Flight with the best stableford score of the day, 37 points, to finish 8 ahead of Jan Lovgreen in second, while Mick O’Connor edged third place on a count back over Kevin Dinan.

Thursday, Oct. 18, Treasure Hill – Stableford

The game was at Treasure Hill today, where we got away 15 minutes early under partly cloudy skies and hot conditions, which prevailed for the whole round.  The course on the day was dry and in very good condition with some resodding still going on around a couple of greens and we finished the round in 4 hours and 30 minutes with dry feet.

Welcomes went out to Leif Kirkgaard and Bent Moeller back from Denmark.

Nieles Hansen was the winner today on a count back over Mick O’Connor, both on 37 points, while Elias Magnusson, Jan Lovgreen and Stu Rifkin completed the podium in that order.

1st Niels Hansen (13) 37pts

2nd Mick O’Connor (25) 37pts

3rd Elias Magnusson (21) 36pts

4th Jan Lovgreen (21) 33pts

5th Stu Rifkin (16) 32pts
