ROB “CONSISTENCY” BROWN WINS AT BANGPAKONG
CAFÉ KRONBORG AT BANGPAKONG 14TH FEB 2019
Cafe Kronborg played Bangpakong on Valentines Day, Thursday 14th February, where the course was in lovely condition with greens slightly slower than usual. The course has had some changes in the last year making it a bit harder, added to this a bit of a swirling wind on the second nine and evil pin positions scoring was not so easy.
Back in the clubhouse the cards bore witness to a Valentines Day Massacre of sorts, with only one player managing to beat their handicap, the rest being cut down in their prime by the course and conditions. Again the A Flight faired better than the B Flight, but for the third time in a row all 8 winners had 30 plus points.
There were 2 flights with the A flight 0 to 22 and the B flight 23 and above.
The A Flight winner was Rob “Consistency” Brown, or Rab C for short (not to be mistaken for a less charming fictional Scottish character), with a finely crafted 37 points the score of the day and the only player to beat their handicap. Second was yours truly, Richard Kubicki with a hard earned 35 points. Third and fourth places were decided on a very close countback with 2 players having 34 points. Peter Bygballe triumphed, taking third place with 20 points on the back and 8 points on the last 3 holes and Kjeld Jorgensen narrowly losing out, taking fourth place with 6 points on the last 3 holes.
In B Flight the winner was Kurt Sandgaard with a respectable 33 points, a nice even round from Kurt which he delivers every once in a while. Second and third place were decided on countback with both players having 31 points. Peter Hammond taking second place with a countback of 18 points and Karl Beter, in only his second round since his return, taking third place with 17 points on the back. In fourth place was Arne Max Pedersen with 30 points, Arne only taking one week to get on the winners podium since coming back to Thailand.
The day was not as hot as of late with the wind cooling the body as well as the scores. The late arrival of the buses might also have had an adverse effect, I know it did for the organisers.
