Monday, July 8, Phoenix Gold – Stableford
There were some very unfriendly pin placements on both the Lake and Ocean nines today at Phoenix and this showed in the scoring. It’s not very often you get a 6-way countback but we had one today with all of them on 33 points. Gerard Lambert took third spot having 18 points on the back nine, Glenn Smith having 19 on the back nine took second and Bill Marsden, with 21 on the inward half, attained first place. There were no 2s recorded.
Wednesday, July 10, Green Valley – Stableford
We took a trip to Green Valley on Wednesday, with 12 ladies and 8 guys playing. The girls took the place apart today with Miss Nu firing 38 points off her 15 handicap while coming in second with 40 points off her 22 handicap was miss Sa. But first place went to Miss Lynn with a staggering 41 points off a 10 handicap – a great score young lady. There were two 2s, coming from Miss Phen and Miss Sasi.
The men’s division was won by Auke Engekles with a fine score of 38 points. Coming in second was Sel Wegner, taking that spot courtesy of a countback over Jeff North, both scoring 37 points. There were no 2s from the boys today.
Laem Chabang was our other venue of the day with 12 players on the B and C loops. We had a countback for the minor places between Gerard Lambert and Barry Copestake, both scoring 33 points but with Barry getting the nod for second. Top of the tree was Tim Knight with 34 points. There no 2s today.
Friday, July 12, Burapha – Stableford
Burapha C and D was the challenge of this day. Some of the tee blocks were forward and some were well back from their normal positions making some holes extremely difficult for some of the shorter hitters. Half the field didn’t make 30 points and only one player beat his handicap.
Glenn Smith took third place with 32 points, Rick Culley, having not had a game in 3 weeks, was second with 33 points, and Arch Armstrong took the top spot with a fine 37, also getting the only 2 of the day.
