Monday, August 26, Khao Kheow – Stableford

We were allocated the A and B nines today and playing off the yellow tees we had two divisions out with the equal cut at 12-17 and 19+. “Pick, clean and place” was implemented from the first tee and that was a good move as there were some soggy patches throughout.

It was a tough test out there today with 35 points the best score of the day, with Neil Gamble posting that to win division 1. Willy Van Heetvelde was second on 32 and Nik Evans took third with 29 points.

Some lower scores in division 2 with Frank Grainger taking the top podium position with 29 points, Alarn Bissell was second on 27 and John Doyle finished third with 26.

Neil Gamble scooped three nearest the pins in division 1 while Ray Daws and Willy Van Heetvelde were the only two winners in division 2.

Ray Daws birdied A5 and Willy Van Heetvelde B3 to record the only 2’s of the day and split the pot in division 2.
