Mike Newbert is here to stay


PSC golf from The Golf Club

Monday, May 13, St. Andrews 2000 (white tees) – Stableford -.

1st Mike Newbert (11) 41pts

2nd Kevin Moraghan (15) 38pts

3rd Peter Rogers (20) 36pts

4th Nigel Flanagan (13) 36pts

Raves about the fairways and a big disappointment with the greens were the comments coming off the 18th green as we finished our round at the wonderful and magical St. Andrews 2000.  All the greens we faced today were verticut, so if you play here in the next few weeks then be warned.

I am sure after that the course will be in spectacular condition by next week so enjoy this course over the low season sports days and play one of the absolute best golf courses in Pattaya.  We will be back here on Wednesday the 19th of June so send us an email to get you signed up for a great day of golf.

Rayong Green Valley is our usual Monday golf destination, so for us to play St. Andrews for a holiday rate of 2,200 baht was a treat.  This Desmond Muirhead course is certainly one of the best that Pattaya has to offer and is a favourite with the locals.

“The rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” as the great American author and humorist Mark Twain once said.  “The rumors of my departure are completely untrue!” as Mike Newbert reported to me last week.  I had received some misinformation and wrote that Mike was off back to the States, when in fact he is now here full time and is with us for the foreseeable future.  Sorry Mike!  Anyway, Newbert once again proved he is The Montauk Mauler and swept to victory for another notch on his holster with a terrific 41 points.

It was good to see our old pal Kevin Moraghan recovering from a blow from Cupid’s bow to post a strong 38 points at St. Andrews, a course that can eat you alive sometimes.  Peter Rogers was back on track with a 36 and joined by “Mr. Plaids and Stripes” Nigel Flanagan, looking rather dapper in his best Nike clobber.  Sure beats Afghanistan!

Wednesday, may 15, Bangpra (white tees) – Stableford

1st Mike Newbert (11) 38pts

2nd Ken Aihara (4) 34pts

3rd Rob Hunt (21) 32pts

A short week for scheduled golf as the PSC Monthly was taking place on Friday the 17th.  Today we had the very popular Bangpra on our schedule and it was certainly looking good.  No surprise that everyone suffered from several multi-putt greens, hey, this is Bangpra we’re talking about!  They were all quick and dry as to be expected from this golf course, so get there early and do some practice putting before your round and save a few strokes.  Remember our Boy Scout motto -”Be Prepared”!

Today saw another win for Mike Newbert as he has elevated his game to another level.  He is playing some seriously good golf, and a lot of it.  Steady Kenny Aihara was second and turned in a 34 point card while visiting Rob Hunt walked off with third for just 32 points.  At Bangpra, that score can sometimes be a blessing!  Thanks for joining us this week for golf with The Golf Club!
