        Stevens Starts The Year In Style

 

The third day of 2018 saw the Pattaya Links Golf Society visit beautiful Burapha to play a stableford competition in two flights, cut at sixteen and under. As always the sumptuous A and B nines were in perfect order and the day was fair with a light breeze making it the most comfortable of golfing experiences.

Scores were as competitive as always, with one exception, and in the top flight Simon Kendall again found the secret with 34 points giving him third place – a few behind runner-up, Irishman John Doyle, on 37. John’s 81 was also the best gross of the day. The flight winner was Ralph McConnell, also with 37 points but the countback was in his favour.

In the second flight third place went to David Dunne after a sound performance of 35 points, Jake O’Neill managed 36 points for second but the flight was usurped by Canadian golfer Rod Stevens whose power-packed swing returned to give him 40 points and the group’s first sub-70 net round of the year.

Consolation awards went to Colin Smith for his best front nine of nineteen points and fellow Welshman Len Jones who took the best back nine slot with twenty points.

A special mention must be made of one of the group’s most loyal supporters, Dave Moriarty who played his first round since suffering a heart attack back in the States in the summer. His recovery is taking time but just to see him on the course again after the trauma is a reminder to us all of how precious our golf days are. Good to have you back Dave!
