Senior stays on course with victory at Laem Chabang


Travellers Rest Golf Group

So for the second week running it was “All Quiet on the Eastern Front”.  The Reds might not be getting on with the Yellows at the moment but the Blues and the Greens were in perfect harmony.  The blue of the sky and the green of the golf fairways blended beautifully to provide the perfect setting for a round of golf.  Mind you, there were a few rumbles of distant thunder this past week.

Monday, May 26, Laem Chabang – Stableford

On Monday the TRGG took to the road and headed off to play Laem Chabang (A and B courses) and it was wily old Ted Senior who carried on his good form to romp home with a splendid 37 points.  Derek Thorogood chased him all the way but had to settle for second place on 35 and Michael Patterson took third place on 33.

1st Ted Senior (14) 37pts

2nd Derek Thorogood (17) 35pts

3rd Michael Patterson (12) 33pts

Wednesday, May 28, Wangjuntr Highland – Stableford

It was off to Wangjuntr Highland on Wednesday for our annual visit, as it is nearly two hours away for most drivers.  Last time I made the trip we travelled by time machine, (also known as Fergus Brennan’s car) and we got there ten minutes before we left.  Fergus certainly doesn’t hang about.  He didn’t hang around on the golf course this year either as he left the rest of the field trailing in his wake.

Fergus stormed off with first place although Phil Mitchell in second spot and Ted Senior in third were right on his back bumper and the latter two were only separated after a count back.

2nd Phil Mitchell (6) 33pts

3rd Ted Senior (13) 33pts

Friday, May 30, Plutaluang – Stableford

The final trip of the week on Friday was to play the Navy Course at Plutaluang (West and North courses).  It was here that the closest finish of the week transpired and a count back was necessary to sort out first and second place.  John O’Donaghue took the honours, just getting the better of Daryl Ottaway while Billy Allan trailed in a long way behind on 33 points.

1st John O’Donaghue (16) 38pts

2nd Daryl Ottaway (7) 38pts

3rd Billy Allan (16) 33pts
