WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 15TH
So it was Valentines Day yesterday and being a bunch of romantics at the Billabong, celebrations were essential, but for those standing near the 1st tee the aftereffects of last night’s revelries, George Barrie and Kevin Wild in particular, showed the effects of last night which was etched on their faces and most of the 36 golfers needed the hair of the dog for only 12 had 30 points or better. We can only assume that their better halves, male and female, also had a great night for the Thai ladies know how to enjoy the occasion. The course is on good condition and even the bunkers have not been ignored for more sand has been added. A strong wind accompanied us for the first nine holes which is a contributory factor for Jeff North to experience the worst round of golf since puberty. Gerard Lambert is making a habit of being mentioned in dispatches with 35 points just one point below Warren Miller who finished 3rd with 36 points. William Macey was well short of Peter LeNoury on 38 points who went round in gross 79 to have 41 points. The overall scores for the ladies reflected the day after the night before but Miss Yen had 33 points just 1 point less than Miss Sa who finished 2nd but Miss Da made a welcome return to the winners enclosure on 36 points. Two 2s today going to Miss Sa and John Bearden PLEASE NOTE: The tee time for the Billabong monthly scramble on February 24th at Plutaluang ihas been changed to 7.30 – yes 7.30am.
