Links Golf Society 25/4
At Green Valley on Wed Apr 25 S/ford
Davies Dominates Green Valley
Pattaya Links golfers warmly looked forward to a visit to Green Valley on Wednesday, 25th April and found on arrival that the greens had been cored and sanded a week before their arrival.
Putting was to be a bit of a lottery therefore, on the course which otherwise was in excellent condition. With the removal of quite a number of trees around the course the track now has a more open and airy feel and the latest routing is almost the same as the original design.
The single flight started on time and made good progress while all around the skies were heavy but the rain gods stayed away, making a delivery to courses north of Green Valley instead, notably Burapha.
Scores showed Brian Talbot in fourth place with 37 points, one point behind Tip Briney and Derek Philiips on 38 but separated by Derek’s better back nine.
The winner was Phil Davies whose game is either right on or stuttering. This day was his though, as another forty point return saw him don his own Green Jacket back at Links Bar.
Consolation prizes went to Nigel Harrison for his best front nine of 19 points and Bill Copeland for his best back nine of 17 points.
Best Front Nine ( non winners)…. . Nigel Harrison……….19 pts
Best Back Nine ( non winners)…… Bill Copeland………..17 pts
Winner ……..Phil Davies (13)…………….40 pts
2nd Place…….Derek Phillips (23)…………38 pts c/back
3rd Place…….Tip Briney (22)…………….38 pts
4th Place……..Brian Talbot (14)…………..37 pts
The “wig’ went to Dave Arataki on his final round this trip and the English golfer who had performed so creditably during the Links’ Songkran tour found another type of reward waiting on his return.
A number of old friends are leaving for home this week and the Links wishes them all a good summer and God speed till we meet again later in the year.
