St Andrews

7 players today for St Andrews with an all in price of 1750bht and Members 1000bht you would expect the place to be packed,but a lot of cars on the car park but St Andrews was empty.They are starting to do some work on the greens so this will probably take a few weeks to get it right in the meantime they need to cut the rough down, its almost impossible to get out of it at the moment, apart from that a very pleasant roud of golf, The 1st group out Gary Emmett ,Greg Kath, Stan Smith all from Aus. They set a cracking pace and Stan was on fire 23pts on the front then going well on the back till he hurt his back on the last 2 holes for 40 pts.on 16 holes, Gary was not far behind on 33 pts and Greg trying out a new driver with27 pts. The next group out Rune Aksdal ,Paul West, Tip Briney and the Donkey. Here it was a battle between Paul & Colin from the start with Paul just edging the 1st 3 holes then the blobs started 2 each on the front & 2 each on the backand Colin just taking Paul overall 36 pts  to 32 pts Tip was one back on 31pts and Rune unable to keep up Mondays back nine form with 24 pts.

Mountain Shadow

13 players today luckily enough to escape the madness of Pattaya for a few hrs. The course quite busy but we were lucky enough to go straight off with 3 x 3 balls & one 4 x ball. 1st group out Aussies Stan Smith & Greg Kath & Pierre Zbinden on his last day before returning to work, These lads did not hang aboutand finished in about 3 ½ hrs, Stan was once again top man with 36 pts with 22 on the back. Greg 30pts & Pierre 27pts. The next a trio of English peter Hynard, Paul West & the Donkey, This was peters 1st game back and he showed a bit of rust in places.paul had a nightmare start1pt from the 1st 3 holes but kept at it to finish 32pts, The Donkey blobed 7 & 8 but then 22 pts on the back for 36 pts. The next group Tip Briney Barry Oats, & Mogen’s Jensen. Mogen’s had his normal front nine with a couple of blobs & a good back nine of 22pts for 38pts.Barry played off the white tees and had 3 blobs on the front and a couple on the back for 28pts, Tip after a bright start had 5 blobs in a row and 3 more on the back left him wishing he had stayed at home at least there was plenty of free ice on the streets. The final group we welcomed back after a long time Mark West, Grahame Buckingham, John Davis & Mick Coghlan. Here it was Mark to make his Mark with a solid 20 pts on the front easily the best front nine score of the day.and he did well on the back until some bad advice from his caddy on the last 3 holes to finish 36 pts Grahame had a creditable 33pts John 31pts And Mick 24pts.
