Davies On Song at Burapha

 

The Pattaya Links Golf Society played its 150th competition round of the year at Burapha on Monday, 17th December, on the A – B combination which was in its usual excellent condition with well grassed fairways and consistent greens. The weather was less overwhelming as a cooling breeze held sway throughout and scoring was generally good.

 

The field of three dozen golfers was divided into two flights at fifteen and under. In the second flight three golfers recorded 36 points and countback was invoked, relegating Frank Riley to fourth place, behind his mate, John Coetzee and runner-up Martin Patch.

 

The flight winner was Darren Beavers with 38 points. Perhaps Darren was still on a “high” after Newcastle United’s EPL win two days previously?

 

In the top flight fourth place went to visitor Jason Pereira on 35 points, losing third on countback to John Doyle. Second place went to George Mueller with 36 points.

 

The winner by a margin of five points was Phil Davies whose 41 points was his best round for a while. Here was one Welshman whose game was certainly on song.

 

Near pins : Gerner Lykke, Olivier Tahon, Darren Beavers and Paul Chesney.

 

The consolation awards for the best front nine went to Tommy Marshall with 20 points and Michael Wright with 19 points on the back nine.

2nd Place……………………..George Mueller (13)……….36 pts

4th Place………………….Frank Riley (26)…………….36 pts

 

 

 

French golfer Olivier Tahon presented a box of Ryder Cup balls on his final round and the lucky winners of the draw were Maurice Roberts, Colin Smith and Wayne Peppernell.

 

Chris Walsh suffered the “wig” blues and the “silly hat” was awarded to Tip Briney after a frustrating back nine averaging a point a hole.

 

The final presentation was a commemorative plaque which was donated by Burapha Golf Club to mark Maurice Roberts’ hole-in-one there one month ago. Well done again Maurice.
