Phillips Holds the Field Over a Barrell

 

The Pattaya Links Golf Society left Soi Buakhao in high spirits on Wednesday, 12th December, savouring a visit to Greenwood to play a stableford competition in three flights, cut at fifteen and nineteen. leaving those on twenty and above in the third flight.

 

The day was splendid with a cloudy sky and a cooling fresh breeze and the course was in excellent condition, with the reopening of the long-missed B nine a bonus.

A quality field of 44 golfers set off on time from the B and C tees and progress was good.

 

Scores in the second flight (16 – 19) disappointed with Willy Brown managing fourth place with 32 points on his return round, a couple behind Colin Service, again on form, with 34 points. The top two were separated by countback with Paul Chesney’s better C nine score taking the win ahead of Derek Phillips, both with 35 points.

 

 

The third flight saw an eclectic mix of scores as Murray Edwards plodded to fourth place with 27 points, one behind third placed man Alan Spencer on 28. In second was Frank Riley with 34 points, but the man of the moment was Aussie Bryan Barrell whose 39 points represented his best score in more than six years golf with the group. Bryan is a very patient golfer! Well done mate.

 

 

The top flight was treated to some fine golf as American-Thai golfer Zack Tsisri posted 35 points on his debut round with PLGS for fourth place. Third place went to Simon Kendall who played another fine round with 36 points.

 

Runner-up was Alan Humphries with 39 points, his best this trip, leaving fellow Welshman Huw Phillips to “lord it” for the second time this week with a sublime 41 points. When Huw is on a hot streak he is hot.

 

The usual technicals were contested, in two flights with near pins going to Derek Phillips,Alan Spencer, Jim Ferris, Kevin LaBar, George Muller,Huw Phillips and Dave Ritchie.

 

The longest putt, a rarity at Links, on hole B9 went to Paul Chesney.

 

Consolation awards went to Carl Luke for the best B nine score of 19 points and Colm Lawlor with the best C nine score of 20 points.
