Paddy triumphs on return to Emerald


PSC Golf from Siam Country Resort

Tuesday, Oct. 27, The Emerald – Stableford

It was a long time ago that we last played the Emerald, so we were curious as to the condition we would find the course.  Despite heavy overnight rain the layout was in fine condition and we enjoyed our day and had a good game. 

Paddy Devereux (H/cap 22) confirmed his recent good form again today with 39 stableford points to take top spot.  Second was Sam Gettinby (24) with 38 points and in third was Willem Lasonder (19) with 37.

The near pins went to Sam Gettinby, Willy Hogg and Jonathan Pratt.

Thursday, Oct. 29, Mt. Shadow – Stableford

On the Thursday we went to Mountain Shadow where the weather was nice and hot.  The course was in very good condition although the greens were a little bit unpredictable because of the sanding – sometimes slow and the next time very fast.  Anyway we had a nice golfing day again.

Neil Harvey, Jonathan Pratt and Paddy Devereux.

We had a close finish between Neil Harvey (16), Jonathan Pratt (10) and again Paddy Devereux, each with 33 stableford points.  Neil was declared the winner on the count back and Jonathan Pratt took second.

The near pins were claimed by Neil Harvey and Martin Hayes.
