Phill doubles up


PSC Golf from Mulligans Lakeside

Tuesday, Jan. 15, The Emerald – Stableford

Tuesday was a visit to Emerald, where the course was in good condition, but full to the brim with golfers.  This meant an unusually slow round for the regulars, more than 5 hours on the course, not the most desirable, roll on High Season.

With a large number of players today we had 2 flights with 4 placings in each.  Leading the way in A Flight was Phill Waite (H/cap 12) who has been in good form of late, resulting in a steady decrease in his handicap.  Phill recorded 36 points and led the way from Martin Hayes (12) with 35, one ahead of Owen Walkley (10), with Jeff Wylie (6) another point behind after edging Bob on count back 19/17.

In the higher handicap flight, it was JeanClaude Coulon (29) on top with 36 points, from Frans Olgers (18) with 35.  Third spot went to Joel Flor (22) with 34, one up on our silver tee octogenarian Kurt Erik Persson playing off (24).

Near pins were shared around between Neil, Owen, K & Jeff.

It was pleasing to see we had 4 Thai ladies playing with us today, hope to see them again soon.

Thursday, Thursday was the long drive to Crystal Bay, with the C & A combination our test of the day.  Good scores were a little thin on the ground; it was a little windy, but otherwise good conditions and no excuses other than perhaps the 5+ hour round.

2 flights today, but only 3 places in each, and it was Phill Waite (12) again leading the way with the day’s best score of 36 points.  He was followed by Bob Edwards (8) with 35, while Jeff Warner (13) had his first collect of this visit with 33 points.

The higher flight went to Kurt Erik Persson (24) with 34 points, ahead of Brian Maddox (21) with 31 points while Mam (29) got third spot with a paltry 27 points.

Near pins were again spread around, with George, Jeff, Phill & Neil getting amongst the prizes.
