Knight back in the winner’s circle


PSC golf from The Outback Golf Bar

Monday, May 26, Burapha – Stableford

A very hot and humid day greeted the 29 Outbackers who got away early on the A and B nines, and with virtually no-one else on the course were round in very quick time with the exception of the last group, who were washed out on the last hole by a sudden and violent storm.

The scores were generally quite good, reflecting that we played from the shorter white tees and that the course was in excellent condition.

Tim Knight – 42 points at Green Valley.Tim Knight – 42 points at Green Valley.

The second division was won by John O’Keefe with 40pts from Sugar Ray on 37; third was a much improved Jack (who only played 17 holes) with 36 and Aussie visitor Kevin Tompsett took fourth with 35.

The top division was also won with 40pts, by Graham Hiskett, from Paul Sharples in second who beat Brad Jordison on c/b, both with 38pts, and Bob Finley fourth on 37.

Today we welcomed Stuart Gordon, Chris Davisson and Bob Pearce, who was having his last game before returning to the UK, and we also said goodbye to Wally Brown and Les Easton.

There were six ‘2’s from Murray Hart, Graham Hiskett, Pete Stonebridge, John O’Keefe, Sugar Ray Handford and Jack Moseley.

Div A (0-15)

1st Graham Hiskett (15) 40pts

2nd Paul Sharples (12) 38pts

3rd Brad Jordison (07) 38pts

Div B (16+)

1st John O’Keefe (17) 40pts

2nd Sugar Ray Handford (18) 37pts

3rd Jack Moseley (22) 36pts

4th Kevin Tompsett (24) 35pts

Wednesday, May 28, Laem Chabang – Stableford

We played the A and the recently re-opened B courses, which were as usual both in fantastic condition and luckily the usual storms, often seen this time of the year, went around us.

Playing his last game with us, Kevin Tompsett won the day with 32pts from the recently returned from Spain, John Lawton, on 31.  In third was Rob Wode (30) and Tim Knight came fourth with 29.  Not the best of scoring, true, but I cannot work out the rating at Laem Chabang – to play to your handicap here from the white tees – 39pts is needed?

We also said farewell to Brad Jordison and Rob Wode who were returning back to Queensland and we look forward to seeing them on their next visit.  If we get enough players we will play this top course on most Tuesdays through to October.

There were no ‘2’s.

1st Kevin Tompsett  (24) 32pts

2nd John Lawton (18) 31pts

3rd Rob Wode (18) 30pts

4th Tim Knight (27) 29pts

Friday, May 30, Green Valley – Stableford

A good field of 26 players back on our resident Friday course for only the second time this month, reportedly in good condition.

Murray Hart, having his last round before going back to work, got it right at last after picking up no spoils in the last few attempts.  Murray scored 40pts to win Div A from Jack Grindvold on 36, Peter Nixon (35) and welcome back to Nick Odnoral (33) in fourth.

Another man who hasn’t seen much in the way of podium finishes in recent months is Tim Knight but he put that right today to record the day’s top score of 42pts to take Div B from the the improving Kim Danboise, complete with new driver on 39.  Bob Lindborg (36) and Ken Hole (34) took third and fourth respectively.

There were two ‘2’s from Peter Nixon and Paul Sharples both on the 12th
