Kevin Mackintosh – A Flight & Low Gross winner.

The Pattaya Amateur Golf Series for April had a decreased number of participants with 87 taking part, including a solitary lady.

Burapha A & B nines were the combination of the day, with the course playing at its full scorecard length, and in overall fine condition.  The weather conditions deteriorated about midday, with heavy rain and plenty of electrical activity in the skies above the course.  Most players waited out the rain, and were rewarded with some satisfactory to outstanding scores.

There was no winner in the Ladies Flight as the 1 lady failed to finish due to the weather.  The C Flight winner for handicaps 21+ was Todd Fox (38) with the aforementioned day’s outstanding score of 45 points.  Stephen Watkins (27) played well to record 40 points, while Bengt Almstrom picked up third spot with his 37.

B Flight for handicaps 13–20 was won by Phil Barber (15) with a solid 39 points, ahead of 2 players on 36.  Pierre Zbinden (20) had the better back 9 of 18 points to claim the silver while Bjorn Noren (15) had to be satisfied with the bronze medal position after signing for 17 points on the back 9.

The A Flight for players for 0–12 saw Kevin Mackintosh (5) show some great form to shoot a 1-under par score of 71 to win Low Gross and top spot in the flight with a spectacular 42 points.  Pelle Petterson (12) played well to sign for 39 points, while Steve Truelove (12) picked up the low spot on the podium with 37 points, to go with his Long Putt on A4.

Honourable mentions go to Mark Johnson with his 3 technical awards and Andre Coetzee with 2.
