2nd Neil Smith (35) 39pts

A little better turnout for Burapha today with 15 players in total and the weather looked good despite the forecast.

The field was split into 2 flights and the star-turn came in the B Flight from Mogens Melander who returned with 42 points on his scorecard to earn top billing.  Mogens was three clear of Neil Smith in second place.

Colin ‘The Donkey’ Davis hung on by a single point to win the A Flight, his 38 points proving to be just enough to see him take first place ahead of Nick ‘Elvis’ Shaw.

Near pins were claimed by Colin Hopkins & Mike Omiya while the longest putt award went to Mogen’s Melander.

Crystal Bay was the challenge today, with 14 players in 2 flights taking on the C & B courses in that order.

This day turned into the Christen and New show as first Christen Boysen took out the A flight with a lifetime best 2 over gross 42 points, six clear of The Donkey in second, and then New Satita followed suit with a 41-pointer to take out the B Flight ahead of Barry Oats.  Christen and New’s playing partners, Iain Jones and Kent Gustuasson, could only look on in amazement.
