                              Birthday Boy Phil Still Celebrating !

 

It’s only a couple of days ago we had a Big celebration day for Phil’s birthday, but at Bangpra today he kept the party going with a runaway 40 points Stableford to easily win “A”Flight.

Another big crowd of golfers, 31 in all, loaded into 2 buses and a number of cars to make the trip to the “Monkey Course”. Weather was certainly favourable  and  the course in very good condition.

We all need to be aware that if we want to play on very good greens, then we must be prepared to accept that the Greenkeeper needs to work on the greens at some point. Today we may be inconvenienced, but tomorrow have excellent greens to play on.

With that in mind, these were allowed to grow a tad longer, but for the good of the greens. So today a little slower than we know Bangpra to be. However, Phil Davies said he didn’t have problem with this, even though many others did. Just need to be a good putter, eh? Phil.

Generally scores were much lower all round, apart from Phil’s 40 and “C”Flight winner, Nim with 35 points. Nobody could explain why, and certainly no-one blamed the course. Maybe, because many of these players had not been to Bangpra for a while, and next time will fare much better. That’s my theory anyway..

With so many players, we again had 3 Flights, with 3 places in each. And the “2s” were everywhere. Today we had to split the kitty 4 ways. So obviously the Par 3s were good to some.

Back to “Links Bar” for some fine food and presentations.

We only have the one Green Jacket, so it needs to fit anyone who shoots the best score of the day. On some it looks a little loose and others a little tight, but just like Goldilocks and the porridge, on Phil Davies it fits just right. ( after all he was the model for the tailor who made it!..)

And now for a couple of cold ones, while watching day become night after another terrific day of golf.
