Marshall Calls the Shots at Burapha
The Pattaya Links Golf Society visited nearby Burapha on Wednesday, 19th September to play a stableford competition on the C and D nines. Though not the combination of choice for many of the field – A and B being the preferred option – the course was in reasonably good condition.
Fairways were soft and the rough, which is a problem on the best of days, has now thickened with the recent wet weather. Throw into the mix the usual hazards and long par fours and there is a golf course waiting to be challenged.
A field of twenty played in one flight. With one exception scores were moderate with Pete Seil making fourth place with 35 points, shunted out of third by Maurice Roberts’ better back nine. In second was Dave Arataki making a welcome return after a few weeks absence and his 38 points again indicated how his game is improving since his move to Pattaya about a year ago.
The winner was Tommy Marshall who called all the shots this day with an excellent 41 points (gross 73) to win handsomely. All on his birthday too!
Near pins went to Petur Petursen (C5), Barry Oats (C8), Darren Beavers (D2) and Paul Smith (D8).
The best front nine award went to Paul Durkan…19 points .Garry Hookey took the award for the back nine with 19 points also.
Winner ………..Tommy Marshall (6)……………41 pts c/back
2nd Place……….Dave Arataki (28)………………….38 pts
3rd Place……….Maurice Roberts (13)…………..35 pts c/back
4th Place………..Pete Seil (5)……………………35 pts
Had they been present at the presentation the booby prizes of the “wig” and “silly hat” would have gone to Ari Yokoyama and Sunny Khanna respectively. Maybe they were wise to stay away?
The presentation ended with a rousing chorus of “Happy Birthday” to winner Tommy and the field were rewarded with a share of an excellent cake to celebrate not only a birthday but a very fine round at Burapha. Well done Tommy!
