RICHARD KUBICKI WINS DAY OF THE COUNTBACKS
CAFÉ KRONBORG AT PATTAYA COUNTRY CLUB 28TH MAR 2019
Cafe Kronborg played Pattaya Country Club on Thursday 28th March, where the course was in pretty good condition with fast true greens and softer than usual fairways. A small but motivated group turned out today, with everyone keen to finish on a high.
Back in the clubhouse the scores validated this determination to do well, as nearly everyone made 30 points or better, only a couple of players struggling. However, probably due to the slick greens and some really difficult pin positions no-one managed to match or beat their handicap. The cards also revealed that there was a countback for every place and that 7 players were vying for 5 places.
Due to the small size of the group there was only one flight today, but with 5 placings and a long putt prize there was a more than 50% chance of winning something. With only one flight it was nice to see that the winners were a good mix of what would have been A and B Flight players.
Two players on 35 points fought it out for the top spot and the winner was yours truly, Richard Kubicki with a countback of 18 points, beating Arne Max Pederson into second place, Arne’s countback of 16 points falling just a little short.
There were also two players fighting it out on countback for third and fourth places, both having 34 points. Victorious and taking third place was Rob Brown with a countback of 16 points, beating Lotte Boskov into fourth. Lotte had a storming 22 points on the front, but was unable to maintain the pace and slumped to 12 points on the back.
Fifth place was the most hotly contested position with three people having 32 points and only the one place up for grabs. Jan Lovgreen secured fifth place with a solid 18 points on the back, relegating Ronnie Ratte with 16 points and Karen Brown with 14 points into the also ran positions.
As Carole & myself head off home once again we would like to thank everyone who has played with the Kronborg for making it such a great group to play with. Best wishes to all for a great summer whereever you will be and we look forward to seeing you all next season. Also many thanks to Bjarne and Kran for providing perfectly chilled beer and nibbles back at the Kronborg, nice to see more and more people taking a drink or two there after a hard day’s golf.
