PSC GOLF REPORT.
PATTAVIA – THURSDAY 31st of Jan. ‘19.
STROKE. “JANUARY MONTHLY MUG”
By: PRH Grey.
“It’s Steve Younger rebuilding his career!”
Twenty eight starters, two buses and a couple of cars were required to deliver us for today’s challenge for, The January 2019 Monthly Mug”, a Stroke event.
Pattavia Golf Course, the pineapple plantation was today’s venue for our golfers. This course very rarely gets a bad write up, and according to all reports this has not changed. The last time that I played here it was quite evident that they were doing maintenance to tidy up areas that had overgrown. Today we found the fairways in great condition, rough had been cut back and the greens well what can I say about them.
The weather was on our side so the only thing stopping us was ability. We went at it from The Yellow Tees a bit short for some but being a Stroke day we needed to speed the game up as Mug Day can turn into a long day.
Twenty eight golfers (another good field for Mug Day) gave us the opportunity to play 2 divisions with four placing’s in each. We also ran all novelties.
A Flight saw a younger Steve Younger take on all to get back on top of his game, he returned with net 69 one stroke clear of his nearest opponent. That being Tony Berry as stated he fell one shot short of today’s winner. Third place went to Takeshi Hakozaki with Keith Buchanan filling the fourth spot on the podium.
B Flight was as close as A Flight net 70 saw Dave Maw win the flight also a solitary stroke in front of second position, that being Patrick Poussier, who has more Monthly Mugs than The Growling Swan. His net 71 kept him one shot clear of 3rd & 4th spots which were separated by The Count Back system. Winning the CB and getting third was Jason Schembri with Pat Kavanagh taking fourth place.
