The best brings out the best


Travellers Rest Golf Group

Well I have to say that this past week the cream certainly rose to the top.  One look at the top of the leader-boards showed that only the best and most consistent golfers featured, leaving the rest of us mere mortals looking on enviously.  All the courses played during the week were first class venues in top class condition, so I guess it was only right that the best players finished on top.

Monday, June 2, Bangpra – Stableford

The TRGG got June off and running on Monday with a visit to Bangpra and on a very hot and steamy morning.  The large field for the low season set off to teach the residents monkeys a lesson but it was only the three leaders who ended up with decent scores.  Daryl Ottaway rattled in 39 points for the win, with Jim Cleaver taking second on 37 and the ever-consistent Neil Bramley posting an even par 36 points for third.

Wednesday, June 4, Burapha A & B – Stableford

On Wednesday it was on to Burapha, another beautiful course which hosts a number of international competitions every year.  This day however it was tamed by the TRGG’s international field as England’s Jim Cleaver led the way home with an impressive 39 points.  Thailand’s Mod Chaviraksa gave the men a run for their money by finishing in second place on 38 points and Australian Daryl Ottaway took third with 37.

Friday, June 6, Greenwood C & B – Stableford

It was the anniversary of D-Day on Friday and at Greenwood the “D” stood for demolition.  The top three certainly did their best to demolish the course, with Neil Bramley leading the way on 40 points ahead of the inscrutable Ito Akitoshi just behind on 38 and Jim Cleaver again in the frame with 37.
