Apple’s Irish Bar 15/1

There was only one 2 which was Big Stan, whose envelope was quickly hijacked by Miss Lek. In 4th place with 35 pts was past captain, Ian Corica (25). Ian lost out to current Captain Gerry Conway(19) . In 2nd place was another past captain with a very good 37pts was Rudy Regenass (21). But literally head and shoulders above everyone else ,with a brilliant 40 pts was Shaun Pullen (13).
A very good turnout of 5 groups at Pattana on Friday 8th Jan. where the course was in excellent condition. We had perfect golfing conditions with stiff breeze in our faces for most of the day . Had we had some rain it would have been perfect Irish conditions. We had 4 winners in the 2’s club, Rudy x2, Derek and Captain Gerry. 2nd in B Flight (20+) with 33pts was Rudy “Bitcoin” Regenass (20). Taking 1st place with 34pts. was Ian ” ah god that’s not a gorilla ” Corica (25). 2nd in A Flight, losing out on the Back/9 was in form Shaun Pullen (13). Taking the A Flight honours , also with 37pts , B/9 19 was Captain Gerry. Is this going to be the trend for the year Gerry ??. The overall winner on the day with a terrific 38 pts was Dubliner Derek Phillips (12) On Tuesday 12th we were at Burapha, which is always a pleasure to play. The course was in excellent condition as long as you didn’t venture too fat into the rough, as it should be !!. No 2’s today ,so the pot goes forward to KK on Friday.

On Friday 15th we returned to the lovely Khao Kheow, who gave us a loyalty reward of 1,100 all in, a very pleasant surprise. Conditions were perfect for golf on a great course.
