Cafe Kronborg 25/3
KENNETH MADSEN AND PETER “HOT” HAMMOND FINISH ON A HIGH
CAFÉ KRONBORG AT MOUNTAIN SHADOW 25TH MAR 2019
Cafe Kronborg played Mountain Shadow on Monday 25th March, where the forecast was rain for the whole golfing day. The rain duly appeared as we were all teeing off and gave everyone a good soaking, however by the 7th hole it had eased and then stopped completely for the rest of the round. At least golf bags and equipment were dry by the end of the round. The course was in pretty good condition and not too affected by the rain, greens were very receptive to shots in and were still pretty quick on the downhill putts.
Back in the clubhouse the scores were better than anticipated, with a couple of people managing to beat their handicap. A Flight played from the Blue Tees and B Flight from the Whites, but the scores were pretty even for the flights. Due to the congestion of players on 23 handicap B Flight had a few more players than the A Flight and so had 4 places up for grabs, as opposed to 3 places in the A Flight.
There were 2 flights with the A flight 0 to 22 and the B flight 23 and above.
The A Flight winner was Kenneth Madsen, with the score of the day, an outstanding 38 points. This was after Kenneth managed a personal best score of 77 gross last week. A shame for him today was his last day of golf this season due to his imminent return to Denmark later in the week. At least it gives the rest of us a chance! In second place was Ty Anderson with a solid 36 points. Ty continuing with a rich vein of good scores and the rest of us waiting in vain for his handicap to come down. Third was Henning Olsen with a steady 31 points, still a pretty good score considering the conditions.
In B Flight the winner was Peter “Hot” Hammond with a great 37 points, which could have been a lot more had the golfing gods looked upon him more favourably. Peter striking the ball and putting the best I have seen for many years. It was also Peter’s last round of the season, returning to the UK shortly with his golf game in great shape. In second place was Patrick Poussier with a good 35 points, Patrick showing great consistency on his outings with the Kronborg. There was a 3 way countback for 3rd and 4th places with 3 players having 30 points. Gordon Clegg came in strongest with 18 points on the back to take 3rd place and Karen Brown was 4th with 16 points on the back. Carole Kubicki just losing out with 15 points on the back.
