“BUFFALO BILL” Takes the “Jewel” Comfortably!!!!!!!!!!
It had been sometime since we played out at Emerald GC, with 23 enthusiastic golfers we set out not really knowing what to expect. Pattaya had been hit with plenty of rain up till about 6 am, so we were somewhat uncertain what the outcome would be.
We arrived to see that the course looked to be in great shape, there were patches off water on the fairways but nothing to be concerned about. Playing from the white tees we introduced “Pick, Clean and Place” as there was evidence of water and what looked to be a lack of run.
Two Flights were the order of the day, A-Flight (0 to 17) was taken out by Bill Steinmann amassing 41 points, and creating plenty of space between he and the next place getter. Taking 2nd spot was Steve Younger beating Martin Todd, who came in 3rd, on a count back.
B Flight saw new comer Andy Zwart take the prize rather comfortably from Niall Stuart and Troy Pickford, coming in 3rd getting the nod beating The Colonel in a countback
