Links Golf Society 19/12

Winner,”A” flight, Huw Phillips (R), with Martin Patch ( wig )

Pattaya Links Golf Society….Pleasant Valley…Wed. Dec.19….S/ford

 

Hot Huw Has Happy Holiday

 

When your hot you’re hot, and Huw Phillips’ form right now is very hot. Scoring 40 points to win “A” flight today gave Huw his fourth Green Jacket for the month of December.

Of course, the cries go out asking why his handicap doesn’t come down. It will in due course, that’s the system of USGA handicap.

 

Phil Davies backed up his 42 points haul at Burapha on Monday to record 37 points to take second spot, while the other half of the Links Duo, Maurice Roberts, was right behind the lead pair with 36 points.

 

Another who has been consistently in the winner’s circle is Stan Stewart and he took front and centre today to take out “B” flight with a very handy 36 points.

 

Derek Phillips either has a very good game or a very ordinary game. Today was a good one, scoring 35 points for second place, and Niels Peter won a countback to secure third spot.

 

This Pleasant Valley course seems to change from very good condition to just okay condition. This time the fairways were drying out, and the ground staff had sprinklers in action, but at some places too much, resulting in some soggy patches among the dry.

Greens had been sanded and, although quite quick, were patchy and varied.

 

The blue tees were a located at their full length to make for a long course, and slowing the pace of play at times.

 

Near pins : Colin Smith (5+13), Michael Wright (8), Niels Peter (17)

A rare lowly score for Martin Patch gave him the honour of wearing the “wig”.

 

The person Phil had decided was good for the “silly hat” escaped before the presentation.

 

But wait! Tip Briney just walked in and, although he didn’t play today, he loves that hat, so why not?   Sorry Tip, not yours today.
