A Malaysian Invasion

 

Henry Loh had such a good time when he was last in Pattaya to play golf, he was full of enthusiasm back at his home golf club and tried to encourage some friends to come and try. He ended up leading a group of nine to play at a couple of Societies as well as on their own.

Today they came to Pattaya Links Golf and swept up some of the prizes.

Khao Kheow once again came up to expectations and even though the course had received a drenching the night before, still played well, albeit with not a lot of run on the fairways.

The greens are in really good condition considering the rain, and ran true.

We played lift, clean and place on the fairways as carts were restricted to the path only. The day was hot and humid with the ever present threat of rain but, lucky us again, no rain during the round, but plenty of wet stuff on the drive back to the Bar.

We played two flights with four placings in each.

“A” flight was won by one of the visiting Malaysian golfers, Pete Pang who scored a jaw dropping 47 points. That sort of score is almost unheard of at Khao Kheow.

Another amazing score came from Marco Beer, a regular here, with 44 points. He said he could not make it back for presentations, so we took a photo ready for his win. 44 was not enough! Masa Takano, still waiting for his Green Jacket had 40 points and then Bill McGarvie scored 37 points for fourth place.

“B” flight was no less amazing as another of the visiting group, Herbert Leong, made a big 42 points to beat Mike Firkin, who really has it going at the moment. He scored only? 41 points. Job well done Mike.

Darren Beavers is back after a slump and amassed 36 points for third and Tony Browne, who continues practicing took fourth with 36 points.

John Anderson had more dramas than we could imagine, firstly once in the bus, can’t find the phone. Eventually found to be sitting on it.. Then forgot to put out the first near pin, sending caddie for a drive, then tripped over and took skin off his arm, and finally, the indignity of slipping in the mud on the tenth wrenching a knee, but carried on playing, regardless.

Certainly a “silly hat” winner.
