Horgan huffs and puffs his way to lifetime best


Travellers Rest Golf Group

Tuesday, August 13, The Emerald – Stableford

It was the Queen of Thailand’s birthday on Monday 12th August which meant it was a Thai Holiday, which also meant no golf for the TRGG.  So the golf fanatics among the TRGG had to go cold turkey on Monday and it was Tuesday 13th August before they could get their next fix.

One man who knows all about going cold turkey is big Liam Horgan our affable Irishman.  Liam however was not addicted to golf but the dreaded weed, tobacco.  He informs me that with the help of his giant collection of E Cigs (electric cigarettes for the uninitiated) he has now gone six months without a cigarette, well done Liam.

Liam Horgan.Liam Horgan.

On Tuesday at Emerald, however, Liam was certainly smoking as he put together his best round of golf in his living memory and returned with 43 points, which was miles ahead of Robert Cannon who puffed his way into second place on 37 and even further ahead of Ted Senior who must have been suffering from withdrawal symptoms, only finishing third on 35.

1st Liam Horgan (14) 43pts

2nd Robert Cannon (17) 37pts

3rd Ted Senior  (14) 35pts

Thursday, August 15, Phoenix – Stableford

On Thursday 15th August the TRGG headed off as usual to Phoenix (Lakes and Mountain) and the smokers among us fought back.  Roger Wilkinson took one giant puff and blew the opposition away, but only just.  He won on count back from Jim Cleaver both of them finishing on 37 points.  Tewin Poopay Lamthong made it into third spot with 35.

1st Roger Wilkinson (11) 37pts

2nd Jim Cleaver (12) 37pts

3rd Tewin Poopay Lamthong (11) 35pts
