Long Putts: #18 John Edwards.
Still suffering from the lack of punters in Pattaya we ventured out with 12 eager and enthusiastic golfers all prepared to go into battle with the monkeys at Bangpra.
It was such a shame that our numbers were low as we were heading to a great course that always comes up in tip top condition. I keep forgetting just how good a nick this course is in the staff must be congratulated on the fine job that they do. The Greens were a bit slower than normal but still good to putt on.
We attacked the course from the white tees and Rudy was out to show that he meant business from the start. First game back with us he returned with 34 points to take out first place but only ended up one shot in front of second placed Mashi Kaneta.

An even group of 20 golfers headed out to Pattaya Country Club, a course we have not played for quite some time. The front-nine of the course was in great nick but the greens on the back-nine were a bit disappointing. Word was that they are cut too short and suffered damage. Hopefully they can recover quickly.
There were two divisions and today in A flight Ian Ward came in with a solid 37 points to win easily by 3 points from Aaron Dykes. Steve Younger completed the podium in third with 33 points.
B flight was won by Tony Cook who had his best round for quite some time with 37 points to win by 4 points from Alex Field, who snared second spot from Mashi by way of a count-back.
