Wednesday, Nov. 21, Chee Chan G.C. – Stableford

We were lucky to have 16 players here today, not because the course was full but due to the course still experiencing a shortage of caddies, although the situation is apparently improving.

We had two divisions and in Div A (0-13), both David Rose (h’cap 3) and Nick Fazakerley (h’cap 10) were tied at the top on 32 points and after a countback first place was awarded to low marker David.

John Emmerson surprisingly found himself in Div B (14+) which cannot have happened very often, and he took second place with 33 points. The runaway winner was Chris Martin with 38 points off a handicap of 14.

Thursday, Nov. 22, Burapha B & A – Stableford

It was unusually busy here for a Thursday, with mostly Koreans waiting to tee off on the A & C nines. The starter, who has been here for many years, must have felt sorry for us as the Koreans were running late, so he very kindly opened up the B nine just for us, giving way to a speedy front nine.

Jean-Pierre (another J.P.) was very steady for his 34 points for fourth place whilst Petteri (h’cap 6) got off to another slow start with only 15 points on the front nine before returning on level par for 21 points and a total of 36, to put him third.

Roger Emery took second on 37 points and the win went to John Harrison, finishing in the frame again with a very fine 39-pointer.
