Kansas City Bob Wins On Debut
Bob Rice happened to be walking along Soi Buakhow one day and saw The Links Bar golf schedule out front. Having only two days left of his Pattaya break,decided to ask about playing with us. Given a run down on how it works, he signed up, borrowed some clubs and sat in the Mini Bus with the other 7 of us , and off we went to Mt.Shadow Golf Club.
We arrived on time and the first thing I saw was the brand new tiling in the foyer and that staircase. At last the dirty old carpet had gone, well, almost. The job is not quite complete, but looking good.
The golf course I also found in the best condition I have seen for some time. That horrible rough has been cut to a satisfactory level ( for me anyway) and the fairways are very good, although, on this day a little damp underfoot so not much run.
The greens also are in good condition, but again, rain had left them a lot slower than we have come to expect here. We just need to be aware to give the putt a bit more of a push.
Scores today were far from brilliant, because this a tough course and made tougher by the aforementioned dampness.
Bob Rice playing off his USA handicap of 9 did best of all, scoring 34 points. A perfect debut. Unfortunately for us, he has now headed off home to Kansas City.
Also on his last appearance here for this trip, Selwyn Yates kept up his winning ways to notch up just 30 points, but enough to take the only other place on the podium.
Two more prizes to pay and they are for the Best Nines for non winners.
Best Front Nine…..Mike Firkin….20 points
Best Back Nine……Len Jones……13 points. ( he had a chuckle about that.)
Winner……Bob Rice (9)…………..34 pts
2nd Place….Selwyn Yates (11)…….30pts
Phil was away today, so one gentleman is very happy about NOT getting the “Wig”
