We had thirteen golfers show up for the day’s event at Khao Kheow. The weather was in our favor, even if a little on the warm side. Playing from the yellow tees we attacked the B & C nines and the course was in good shape. Fairways were good, greens were fast but true and bunkers were clean and raked.

The numbers dictated that we would be playing one flight only with all novelties in play. Frenchman Patrick Poussier returned a very good score of 37 points to carry the day and we then saw second and third decided by the countback system, with Dave Maw on his return to the Swan taking second and Colin Stielow third.

Thursday, Dec. 6, Greenwood – Stableford

1st Bill Steinmann (11) 42 points

2nd Steve Younger (13) 36 points

3rd Martin Kempton (11) 36 points

4th Frank Riley (27) 35 points

Near Pins: A6 Bill Steinmann, B2 Troy Pickford, B5 Bernie McCart.

Long Putts: A9 Andrew Allen, B9 Bill Steinmann.

Greenwood never disappoints us, a great course at a good price and with B nine now open it was perfect. The weather was on our side but one has to say as the day got longer the mercury was on the move, it turned out quite a hot day! But with the course being in the condition that it was we all forgot about the heat.

Courses A & B were the challenge and we attacked them from the yellow tees. We had seventeen golfers so that gave us one flight with four podium places. All six novelties were in play as well.

‘Buffalo’ Bill Steinmann played one of his better games today, getting out of the blocks and only leaving daylight between himself and the rest of the field. His return of 42 points left no doubt as to who was going to collect the chocolates. Six points in arrears were Steve Younger and Martin Kempton, both locked together with the same score. The golfer that loses more countbacks than any other, Steve Younger, got the nod from the judges to take second leaving Marty in third place. Frank Riley edged out the man with the good form at the moment, Colin Stielow, to take fourth place.
