Nut shines bright at Emerald


Jomtien Golf with the IPGC

Monday, Jan. 26, The Emerald – Stableford

Yet again a deserted tee box met us here and we were off 25 minutes ahead of schedule and with 8 groups out with the cut set at 7-17 in division 1 and 18 plus in division 2. 

Playing her socks off today off the white tees Miss Nut won division 2 with an amazing 37 points.  Mike Fitzgerald came in second after beating Alan Bissell 13/12 on the back nine, both tying over 18 holes on 30 points.
