It was another early start at Green Valley with a lot of sleepy players so the first hole was even tougher than usual.

Jacob Olsen, out in the first group, was Mr Consistency on the day with 20 points on each nine to record 40 overall and take the day’s honours.

J.P. Maffray started out both nines with 1 point but he recovered to post 38 points and take second place, one ahead of Christen Boysen in third.

Another good turnout for a Monday with 22 players showing up for the trip to Khao Kheow, a good course always gets a good response.

Jacob Olsen was again fast out of the blocks and took out the A Flight with 40 points for his second win in two days.  Christen Boysen went one place better than Sunday and came in second with 38 points as Seamus Lanagan completed the podium a further point back in third.

Neil Smith was making his second visit to Khao Kheow in 2 days, Sunday was at the zoo, but he must have got some local knowledge from the residents as he matched his Handicap (39) with 39 points for victory in B Flight.  Nim Cheoychao took second place with 37 and Barry Oats was third on 35.

Wednesday, June 29, Royal Lakeside – Stableford

A Flight

3rd Lindsay White (23) 38pts

Near Pins: Lindsay White, Neil Smith & Walter Baechli (2).

Long Putts: Mark Bamber (2).

Everything was going well on the trip to Royal Lakeside until we went to turn off the motorway to the Chonburi bypass and hit a tailback as far as the eye could see, so it was back on the motorway till the 334 turnoff and lo and behold they were laying new big water mains.  Eventually we got on the bypass and then found they were digging up the road to Lakeside.  This is not the way to start a game of golf!  Once at the course however, everything changed for the better.

Mark Bamber, playing off an 8 handicap was the star in A Flight with 38 points for the won plus two longest putt awards.  Mark edged out second placed Walter Baechli on count back as Peter Burton took third on 37.  Walter had some consolation with two near pin prizes.

Gerry Raftery stormed home with 22 points on the back nine to win the B Flight with 40 points overall.  Colin Davis pushed Gerry all the way and finished second with 39 points as Lindsay White completed the podium in third with 38.
