GROWLING SWAN 6/9
The Winner “B” flight, Shane Young (L) and Winner “A” flight, Bill Steinmann (R).
GREENWOOD 6th of September 2018.
Buffalo Bill blazes a trail with such a Great Score!!
A quick reminder to All Golfers, your handicap is your responsibility and not that of the person preparing the start sheets. PSC issue sheets (up to date) every Sunday and that is what is used for the week. Please check the start sheet and if you do not agree, the sheets are on hand to be checked!
Well we hit the road with Twenty Two golfers, two buses and a small fleet of cars. Our destination is Greenwood GC a short distance up the highway north.
As per normal this course was in good shape, I would normally say great shape but the back 9, as we played today, had a lot of G.U.R. around the greens making approach shots a little difficult. We played C & A in that order and hit from the Yellow Tees other than the 3 ladies that joined us today. (they went from the Red tees) Let’s hope next month the G.U.R has been repaired.
Weather was not in our favour, we had the sun all day with very little or no breeze to mention. Patch was looking to park himself under a tree and watch the world go by. And that was after 5 holes! It was a hot day!
We had two flights with three placing’s in each and all novelties were in play! Game On!
A Flight saw “Buffalo Bill” Steinmann play a game like no other, I had the pleasure of marking his card and it was something else. (I am sure Bill is the saying the same about the marking of my card) Just to say that Bill won the day easily and I was last on the day easily. (see Crossy I did not give you up).
Second past the post was Stu “Casa” Rifkin continuing with some good form. He beat Steve Younger via the count back system Steve is also having a bit of a Purple Patch as well!
B Flight saw “The Jock” Shane Young take the lollies in his last game before heading back to Oz, he also got there via the count back system keeping John Anderson at bay. Third went to Bruce Walters!

In the photo from L to R well I will rephrase that we have today’s winners Shane “Jockey” Young and “Buffalo Bill” Steinmann sharing the fruits of the days outing!
Back at the Swan, our host Peter Grey welcomed Bruce Walters, then unfortunately had to say goodbye to Shane “The Jock” Young, Martin Todd and Brad Todd. We wish you all safe travel and hope to see you all again soon!
Alex Field paraded D-For around to collect contributions for the less fortunate children of Pattaya. Most golfers and the punters from the Swan are renowned for their generosity!
