Thompson returns to claim monthly honors


PSC Blue Moose Golf

Monday, June 25, Pattaya Country Club – Stableford

The Blue Moose Group took off to a beautiful day at the Pattaya Country Club this 25th of June.  While the sun was out there was a cool breeze throughout the 18 holes. Thanks to the cool breeze Bobby Clark’s fire hot game was kept somewhat cool.

Back at Caddy Shack II the cards showed Bobby with a cool 38 points followed by Bruce Funk with 33 points.  After a bit of refreshment the players trooped off to the Blue Moose.

Thursday, June 28, Burapha – Stableford

The group teed off at 8:15 to perfect golf weather on this day.  This being the final outing of the month, up for grabs was the Monthly Trophy, a tradition dating back for the past 10 years.  Joe St. Laurent was hoping for a trifecta, as he had won the previous two – however, he would be sadly disappointed.

The course was in good condition except for number 5 that still had “lose your ball” tall grass.  Caddies, such as they are, were of little or no help in finding the balls or even having an idea of where they may have travelled to.  That didn’t stop Bill Thompson, arriving back from the rig at midnight and getting home at 02:00, getting up at 06:00 and meeting the tee time and then carding a 36.

Following Bill were Richard Hall and Dale Murphy with 34 stableford points each, with Rich taking second place honors on the count back.  Dale’s significant other, Noi, hit a nice shot onto the 12th green to knock Bill off of the Near Pin honor.

As per custom, Herbie and the girls provided a variety of complimentary snacks for the golfers at the Blue Moose.
