Links Golf Society 18/6
Tommy’s 40 Beats Greg’s 40 at Khao Kheow C+A Mon Jun 18 S/ford
Playing at Khao Kheow and scoring 40 points is quite an achievement, and today two players, with quite different handicaps did themselves proud. It all came down to the countback where Tommy Marshall had the better back nine (A course). From his new handicap of #6 it was 74 gross.
Greg Perfrement has only been here for about two weeks this trip and has been right among the placings, including 2 Green Jackets. Almost a third one today. Great shooting.
The two mates, Derek Phillips and Kevin Rogers were once again in the mix. This time it was Derek’s turn to edge out Kevin by just one point. Consistency comes to mind with these two.
Khao Kheow is a Pete Dye designed course and one comment in the bus on the way home was how there are no uninteresting holes. All different, all scenic and with many challenges. Concentration is always a must here.
The “A” course has had some maintenance done recently and the Management has gone about it with golfers in mind. The Fairways and greens have been worked on first with the Tee boxes to be completed soon. They will be all grown back in a couple of weeks.
You have to like the greens here. Always a good pace and true. Some pin placements today meant that we can use that word again, concentration!
Near Pins have been hard to come by lately for the Links Golfers, but today all was back to normal.
Winners were: Dave Stockman (C3), Pete Seil (C8), Pete Seil (A3), Paul Chesney ( A5)
Then there were the “best nines” for those not yet earning a prize.
Best Front Nine……John Anderson………19pts
Best Back Nine……Paul Chesney………….19 pts
Winner …………….Tommy Marshall ( 6)…………..40 pts c/back
2nd Place…………….Greg Perfrement (20)…………..40 pts
3rd Place…………..Derek Phillips (19)…………….38 pts.
4th Place……………Kevin Rogers (10)…………….37 pts.
All back to Links Bar nice and early, no rain anywhere, and into the presentations.
If you think it was tight at the top, you didn’t want to be at the other end.
It was a three way tie for the worst score of the day. After teasing a few, Phil kept the “wig” and glasses for himself, causing much joy for the other two.
Another great day of golf at the great Khao Kheow Country Club.
