Herbie strikes back

Monday, July 2, Pattaya C.C. – Stableford

Eight of the finest showed up early to tee it up at Pattaya Country Club.  The usual 4-some of Billy, Joe, Jan & Oiy drafted Dale M. to replace Oiy because of illness.

The weather was good; however, the greens were very slow.  Joe S. had a 6 foot putt for birdie that ended up as a bogey!

After winning the monthly at Burapha, Billy T. realized that you cannot continue that level of golf after a month layoff.  Herbie meanwhile is getting back into the swing of things with a 40 point effort.  He is also predicting domination of the Monday golf.  Bobby C. and Paul K. were missing due to (alcohol related?) injuries.

Following Herbie on the podium was Dale M. with a fine 39 point performance.  Jan thought she might be competing for the top spot until she found out her handicap was 2 strokes lower at 24, resulting in 35 stableford points.  Larry E. claimed some Tiger Woods driving distances without any verification.

All stopped at Caddy Shack 2 before moving on to Jan’s for some Thai food.

Thursday, July 5, Phoenix – Stableford

This week the Blue Moose gang travelled to Phoenix Golf Club to play the Mountain and Ocean nines.  The weather was very humid without any wind.

Bill Thompson beat out Larry Emerson on count back with 37 points.  Bruce Funk came in third with 32 points.  The gap between Billy and other normal contenders could have been because of the excellent 4th of July party Billy put on the day before at the Blue Moose.  The consumption at the open bar was high.

Our low handicap golfer Mark Campbell struggled with tight shoulders due to excessive conditioning, although he did capture closest to the pin.

The returning golfers were treated to hot dogs, potato salad and other complementaries at the Blue Moose.

Note:  Golf outings will change from Thursdays to Wednesdays.  Check the web site at http://www.blue moosepattaya.com/ for the upcoming schedule.  Monday golf will stay the same at Pattaya Country Club.
