Bangpakong (Yellow Tees)
BAECHLI BASHES ‘EM
On a very hot day the Kronborg golfers made the long but worthwhile journey to the immaculate Bangpakong golf course.
Unfortunately we said goodbye today to ever present Torben Sorensen who will be at sea for a few weeks before returning to Canada and goodbye to the friendly Danish quartet of Kjeld Jurgensen, Torben Rasboel, Jan Johansen and Jan Nielsen – let’s hope they stay longer next winter.
We welcomed Walter Baechli who last played with us two months ago and boy did he play with us today and gave us a good bashing!!
The golf today was hotter than the weather with Walter taking the A Flight with a magnificent 46 points.Second place was two points behind, third place was eight points behind and to our surprise fourth place was twenty points behind – Walter scored 26 points just on his back nine!!
In the B Flight you had to have 40 points to take fourth place and Jan Johansen with his 45 points
took first place from Gordon Clegg who tried to clobber us again with 42 points.
Walter and Gordon share the same excellent golf coach as I have recently used and that has clearly paid off for them. As for me time will hopefully tell whether I have their ability to take it all in!!!!!
