More ecstasy for Etherington


Phoenix Tuesday/Friday Golf Group

Friday, Feb. 3,Phoenix – Stableford

I don’t know what he’s on these last couple of weeks but whatever it is I really need some.  After last Tuesday’s result of 39 points, Keith Etherington was cut a shot for the Friday game but still managed to equal his gross score of 80 – equating to 38 points to win the day again.  Surely it cannot last?

Sad thing for Keith is that in a couple of week’s time he will have to re-adapt to the cold weather of the U.K to continue his good fortune and give the rest of us a chance to win.

In second place was Richard Baldwin with 36 points and third was Mukesh Thakker with 35 points.

Near pins went to Keith Etherington, Peter Rawling & Granville Swanton.

Lucky draw of a free massage at The Relax Bar went to yours truly.  The free drink went to Denis Dixon

Tuesday, Feb. 7, Phoenix – Stableford

On to Tuesday and another player who will be going back to his homeland next week is Joe Miller who managed to beat the slick greens today and score a fine 35 points in ‘A’ Flight.  Yes 35 points was good going today.  The course is very dry and the greens are faster now than they have been for some 10 months.  Absolutely no chance of spinning the ball to stop unless it was a very high shot.

In second place was Denis Dixon with the same score but losing on count back and in third place with the same score again was newcomer Francesco Toma.

B Flight (19 to 28 H/C) was won by Sergio Volpi with 32 points, with Patrick Browne in second on 30 points pushing Bob Neylon into third place with the same score.

Near pins went To Mark Prytz, Joe Miller (2) & David Czernie.

Lucky Draw prizes donated by The Relax Bar went to yours truly (free drink) and Graham Hiskett (free massage).  A lovely PGA tournament memento ball marker donated by Joe Miller was won by Bong Thonsaphon.

Next week we play for the KPK Food Services voucher under stableford rules.

We are now playing every Tuesday and Friday with a small group also playing on Sundays.  If anyone is interested please contact me on 087 091 7565.  Visitors can enjoy a green fee rate of 1,000 baht as a guest of the members on Tuesday and Friday.
