Jim does the double


PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort

Tuesday, Jan. 21, Mt. Shadow – Stableford

Tuesday was a visit to Mountain Shadow and with the wind blowing a dog off a chain, under clear skies but a little cooler than normal, it was going to be a challenging day of golf.  Good scores had to be earned today, with poor ball striking being punished, and positioning on the greens also at a premium.  

Jim Federspiel (18), who has been battling with his swing of late, was able to put everything together to shoot a creditable 36 points, while our injured golfer Bob Edwards (7) did very well to sign for 35 points.

Near pins were spread around between Bob, Jeff & Paddy.

Thursday, Jan. 23, Plutaluang – Stableford

Plutaluang was the venue for Thursday, with the wind down to a good breeze, while the skies were as clear as a bell.   North & West were the allocated 9s and although the course was quite crowded, once we got going we just cruised along at an adequate pace.

The course was in good order, although the winds have certainly dried the fairways out, with the greens running smooth & true for the most part.  Jim Federspiel was a clear leader today with a well compiled 35 points, while Jeff Wylie (7) & Jonathan Pratt (10) needed a count back to separate them after both signing for 32 points, with Jeff just edging Jonathan 15/14.

Near pins went to Jim & Bob on the West, while Jeff got the pair on North.

Note:  Siam Country Resort, Restaurant & Bar is located just off Siam Country Club Rd, after going under the arch past the 7/11, turn right after 50 metres, with the venue on the left another 200 metres along.  Golf from here is generally played on Tuesday & Thursday, with the Resort hosting prompt presentations on both days.  As a PSC affiliated venue we welcome ALL golfers, including ladies & seniors (>60s) who have opted for the “Silver” tee option.  Call 089 094 1841 for scheduling or enquiries.  Hope to see you there, cheers & good golfing!
