Tuesday, May 7, Bangpra – Stableford

1st Mark Wood (8) 35pts

2nd Gareth Gill (11) 32pts

3rd Mick Beresford (18) 25pts

The task at hand today was a trip to Bangpra to battle the lightning fast greens and the monkeys.  The course was in excellent condition, however the heat and humidity was unbelievable.

Aberdeen’s Mark Wood did it best as he topped A Flight with a best on the day 35 points.  Big Gareth Gill was three shots in arrears to take the silver leaving the flamboyant Mickey Beresford to close the flight.

Thursday, May 9, Green Valley – Stableford

1st Mark Wood (8) 39pts

2nd Bob Newell ( ) 37pts

3rd Gareth Gill ( ) 35pts

Our title guy Mark Wood has been on form as of late and certainly was on this day as his very creditable 39 points made it three wins out of three games.  Mark put a two stroke gap between himself and ‘Broad more’ Bob.  Bob then did the same to ‘Big’ Gareth Gill.

Saturday, May 11, Green Valley – Stableford

1st Mark Wood (7) 36pts

2nd Bob St Aubin (13) 35pts

3rd bob Newell (6) 31pts

A tidy group turned out for our Saturday knock-about at Green Valley.  The course was, as always, in excellent condition with not too much sand in the bunkers.

The rest is about the same as Tuesday and Thursday, in fact one could be forgiven if one thought he was reading a duplicate article.  Mark Wood again took the man of the match honours with a solid 36 points.  Thinking about it, since the inception of the Players Lounge he is the only man of the match we have had.  Sickening!  Well that’s what the runner up Bob St Aubin did on the ninth hole aided by a few Leo’s.  ‘Broad more’ Bob negotiated the greens (carrots, peas, potatoes) etc. to take the bronze with 31 points.

Note:  The Players Lounge is situated on Soi Wat Sutthawas near to the Courtyard Pub, just off Soi Siam Country Club.  Anyone wishing to play with us just pop in and add your name to the list otherwise give Bob a ring on 080 096 8232.
