           Mashi’s Debut Performance

 

We scheduled a game of golf at Pattavia for New Year’s Day. It was always going to interesting to see how many hardy, or dedicated, souls signed up.

Much to our surprise that number became 26. Not such a surprise was the fact that we had cancellations and two no shows, but a couple of very late entries, to finally load 21 starters into cars and buses and get away on time.

We booked Pattavia, because in the recent past they did not charge holiday rates. Our next surprise was that, when we arrived, we found we were about to pay 1150 baht and not 700 bht. Green fees. Oh well, we’re here now.

The course looked to be all ours and our first group, a three ball, got away a few minutes earlier than our scheduled time. That first group set a good pace and all others followed.

Weather was just about perfect and the Course was in the excellent condition we know and have come to expect. The greens were sloped and quick, of course, but not as fast as some other occasions. Actually quite puttable, but still not wise to miss the hole on a downhill putt.

With 21 players, we paid two flights with the cut at 15.

The best score of the day came from the golf journeyman, Mashi Kaneta.

In his first outing with Pattaya Links Golf he won “B” flight with an impressive 37 points. Yes, you read correctly ”B”.

Pat Murphy had a win last week and this time was second to Mashi, scoring a fine 35 points, and David Dunne with 33 points, grabbed third spot by the narrowest of margins on countback.

Simon Kendall won the Green Jacket last week and again was on top of “A” flight with a handicap equalling 36 points.

Phil Davies made a last minute decision to play today and reaped the reward for second place with 35 points, while third place went to a three way countback, each having 34 points. Terry Worth did best on the back nine to take the prize.

Two more prizes to go, those being Best Nines.

 

Best Front Nine ( non winners)…Steve Evans…………20 pts

Best Back Nine ( non winners)….John Doyle…………19pts. c/back

 

 

Winner..”A” flight……..Simon Kendall (14)…………….36pts

2nd Place…………………… Phil Davies (11)…………………35 pts

3rd Place………………..Terry Worth (15)………………..34 pts. c/back

 

Winner “B” flight……….Mashi Kaneta (16)………………37pts

2nd Place…………………Pat Murphy (25)……………….35 pts

3rd Place………………….David Dunne (18)……………..33 pts. c/back

 

After an uninterrupted round all adjourned to the Club House to make use of the free drink/food voucher which, once again, Pattavia is presenting to each player upon payment of green fees. Nice.

We were nice and early back to Links Bar, so Phil decided to do presentations without much delay.

The highlight was to see Mashi wearing the oversize (for him) Green Jacket.   The “wig” went to Andrew Purdie. Not something you would expect, but we’ve all been there.
