Pickles scores a double


PSC Golf from Colin’s Bar

Monday, Sept. 28, Bangpra – Stableford

1st Barry Oats (22) 33pts

2nd John Pirrel (13) 31pts

3rd Colin Davis (19) 30pts

Just a small turnout today, two 3-balls, but fortunately the weather was with us although the course still won.  We started on the first hole and had to wait for a group to finish hole 18 before starting the front nine, but after 2 holes they disappeared and we almost ran around the course and we were all back in the locker room within three and a half hours.  But like I said the course was the winner today – maybe we were too quick!

Barry Oats, playing from the silver tees, had the best score of the day with 33 points while 2 shots back was John Pirrel in second and a further shot back was Colin (Donkey) Davis to complete the podium.

Wednesday, Sept. 30, Khao Kheow A & B – Stableford

1st Ian Pickles (17) 38pts

2nd Rod Brown (18) 31pts

It seemed the rain scared everyone away today, but a few brave souls set out for Khao Kheow and when we arrived there were grey skies all around, but thankfully no rain, and through the black clouds the sun shone on our brave golfers.

Reborn again Ian (San Miguel) Pickles was as steady as ever with 19 both front & back for a total of 38 points and first place.  In second was Rod Brown seven shots back on 31 points and, sadly for us, his last game in Thailand for the next 2 years.

When we got back to Pattaya we knew we had made the right decision to play after hearing about all the rain they had whilst we were away.

Friday, Oct. 2, Crystal Bay C & A – Stableford

1st Ian Pickles (17) 42pts

2nd Vaulton Reece (18) 39pts

3rd Alan White (13) 37pts

Crystal Bay today with a 10.00am tee time and a last game for Max Scott, off back to Australia, and Alan (Woodsy) White & Vaulton (Vee) Reece, back to work in Korea, but they’ll be back in a few months.

There was a rollover ‘2’s pot so a little more interest on the par-3s.  Star of the day again was that man Ian (San Miguel) Pickles with 42 points, including a missed 6-inch tap in!  He was followed by two of the homeward bound boys, Vee and Woodsy, leaving only the Donkey kicking his heels again.  The ‘2’s pot was split between Woodsy , Bob Watson and Maurice Roberts .
