Hoddy stands tall at Khao Kheow


The Outback Bar Golf Society

Monday, May 22, Burapha – Stableford

With a field of only 8 players the low season is really upon us.  The day was won by Peter Stonebridge with a score of 35 points, closely followed by ‘the voucher-man’ Peter Nixon recording a score of 34.

There were two ‘2’s, coming from Helmut Wolf and Colin Goon.

Wednesday, May 24, Khao Kheow – Stableford

On Wednesday this week we learnt about the very sad passing of Capt. Bob Finley.  Bob used to play regularly with our society and our condolences go out to his family.  He will be missed by us all at the Outback and in particular his regular playing partner, Jimmy Little.

Another rain interrupted round of golf and the course was not at its best but still remained a severe challenge to a handicap golfer.  The scores reflected this and top of the tree for the second week running was John Hoddy on 35 points.  In second place came Neil Lavery with 31 points.

Shot of the day went to Charlie Bryan, an iron onto the island green which left the ball nestling next to the pin for a tap in birdie, which led to high fives and fist pumps from his playing partners.  This was the only ‘2’ so Charlie picked up the pot.

Friday, May 26, St. Andrews – Stableford

Unfortunately due to my incompetence at not setting the start sheet properly the result and scores were slightly different to those announced at the presentation.  A division remained the same, with Sel Wegner winning with a fine 37 points.  Battling for second were Kim Danboise and Colin Goon on 35 points, both having 18 on the back but Kim with the better last 6 holes claiming the silver.

The winner of B division was Bob Mattes with 40 points while in second was Per Loevgren with 38.  Steve Watkins completed the podium in third with 37.

Kim Danboise and Per Loevgren scored the only ‘2’s of the day.
