Laem Chabang  Mon  July 23 S/ford – Smith Shows His Class at Laem Chabang

 

Monday, 23rd July saw the Pattaya Links Golf Society continue its low season golf odyssey at Laem Chabang and again found the course (B & C nines) in superb condition.

 

To add spice to the day the Singha All Thailand Championship had been played on the same combination at the weekend and the course was in prime “tournament condition” with punitive rough and quick greens. In addition most of the pin placements were behind bunkers or over water making accuracy and club choice essential.

 

Maintaining its course average this year of forty-plus fields the group teed off in twelve groups in hot and sultry conditions, the only respite coming in the final stages as the sun started to lose some of its ferocity. Good scores were at a premium for the three flights, cut at twelve and nineteen and a mere few managed to do better than net par on the day.

 

In the third flight fourth place went to Paul Garvie with 27 points, one behind Len Jones’ 28 points. Runner up was Masaaki Sugaya with 32 points and the winner was his fellow countryman Masayuki Okada with 37 points.

 

In the second flight fourth place went to John Carling with 33 points, losing third to Kazunoyi Okamoto on countback. Second place went to Maurice Roberts with 35 points, twenty of which were recorded on the extremely tough C nine. The flight winner was Wayne Peppernell with an excellent 37 points.

 

In the top flight John Pierrel found himself in fourth place with 35 points, a couple behind Kevin McEntee and Pete Seil, with the latter taking second on countback. The best score of the day was reserved for Paul Smith whose gross 72 would have ranked in the top twenty a day earlier in the final round of the afore-mentioned Thai tournament. Paul has quality throughout his game and displaying it at Laem Chabang will give him a great deal of pleasure.

 

Near pins went to Kevin Rogers (B5), Paul Smith (B8), Mick Alleyne (C5) and Pete Seil (C8) whilst the consolation brace went to Michael Olah for his best front nine of 21 points and Matt Cronin’s 17 points on the back nine.

 

The dreaded wig was placed on the head of Angus Gannon and the silly hat for the worst nine would have been awarded to Stu Brown had he survived the late presentation.

It had been another splendid golf day’s at Laem Chabang and golfers are asked to sign up early for the next few dates there as the entry list fills up almost immediately.
