Watson Shows His Quality Again

 

December 11th marked the first anniversary of the sad passing of PLGS old friend Leigh Abbey, at Burapha, and it was decided to dedicate the Links Golf day at Mountain Shadow to his memory.

Many friends turned out and the large field was divided into two flights at sixteen and under. The course was looking a little jaded with some patchy fairways but still had the capacity to test and frustrate golfers who dared to stray from the short stuff.

Scores followed previous visits with golfers posting average or less cards, with one exception.

In the second flight a better back nine was enough for Harry Langkoff to shake off the challenge of Tip Briney for third place with 29 points. Niall Caven posted another steady score of 30 points for second and Irishman Chris Walsh went three better to take the flight.

In the top flight Scotland’s Bob Stokes took third with 32 nudging his partner Anne into fourth on 31. Second place went to Wayne Peppernell with 33 solid points whilst the group’s best golfer, Bob Watson shot a gross 75 to give him 37 points, the day’s sole sub-par round.

Near pins were won by Maurice Roberts (5), Tip Briney (8), Bob Watson (15) and Harry Langkoff (17) and the consolation prizes were won by Ralph McConnell (best front nine, 18 points) and Colin Smith (best back nine, 16 points).

John Mason kindly sponsored four more technicals, the winners being Bob Stokes in flight 1 (near pin, second shot, hole 10) and Harry Langkoff (second flight). The best par three total of 8 points was registered by Peter Wilson, on countback and the best par-five total was an excellent 10 points by Phil Davies.
