John Pierrel – A Good Golfer On A Roll

 

Well, that’s different! We have never played the combination of A+C at Burapha before, but we did today.

 

Both nines were in typically good condition with terrific fairways and good speed on the greens, even though there was a hint of residue sand on some.

The rough here is usually pretty difficult and, although it had been cut down a little, still caused a few problems.

 

No problem, however, for the very in-form John Pierrel. Fresh from playing his important part in the successful “Links Bar” team at Pattaya Matchplay he cleared away from the rest with a big 40 points score card to take out “A” flight and, not for the first time, donned the Green Jacket.

 

We mentioned recently that Kevin LaBar has been in contention most games this trip, and here he is again, taking second spot with a well played 36 points, followed by the ever reliable Paul Smith with 35 points off his lowly #3 handicap.

 

Dave Arataki has had his share, and then some, of “wigs” and silly hats”. But how the worm has turned!  Forget the hats, by taking out “B” flight with a strong 36 points to win on countback, is a much needed form reversal.

 

It says something about the “wig” when it kick starts people into concentrating a little bit more.

 

The second and third places also scored 36 points each and both are also recent “wig” wearers. Paul Chesney pipped Tip Briney for second. Good job from all three.

 

Near Pins: Kevin LaBar (A3), Colin Service (A6), John Pierrel (C5), Pete Seil (C8)

On Monday, Bill Markwell was the “wig” winner, but failed to return to the Bar, so his mate Maurice Bowman “ modelled” it. But good things come to those who wait. Bill again had the least number of points and this time he was the model.

 

This “silly hat” thing has taken on many connotations in it’s short life. This time Maurice Roberts decided to use it to take revenge on those who voted for him to wear it recently, and the first victim was Toby Glass who, incidentally is leaving for home today after a two month stay.

 

The fans were turned down and the beautiful Birthday Cake arrived for our co-organiser, Len Jones. He was so excited that he ran inside and “rang the bell”.

Happy Birthday, Len.
