Devastating Davies Sets Season High
As the seasonal temperatures continue to rise the Pattaya Links Golf Society continue to find quality courses to play and settled for Burapha on Wednesday, 4th April. The A and B nines were in excellent condition and two dozen golfers took to the tee in two divisions with the cut coming at fifteen and under.
Fine conditions and good golfers led to high scores in both flights. In the second flight Colin Service took third place after countback with Brendan Gilsenan, both on 34 points.
In second place was Welshman Will Brown whose 36 points rewarded a round of very solid golf. The flight winner was Nigel Harrison and thirty eight points notched another sub-par round for the record.
In the top flight two huge scores stood out as first Tommy Marshall returned with forty points, seemingly set for the win but he knew the truth. He had been playing with Phil Davies who had played the round of his life after some indifferent performances.
His forty-six points matched the best PLGS round of the year so far for an emphatic win.
The secret? Some mediocre rounds recently had increased his handicap and he was fired up by the embarrassment of it all. His words not mine!
Near pins went to Tip Briney (A3), Jon Batty (A6), Michael Wright (B3) and Paul Smith (B8)
The consolations went to Russell Exley (best front nine, 22 points) and Colin Service (best back nine, 19 points).
Finally the “wig” went to Tony Lang after a lacklustre round on his return to the group.
Winner..”A” flight……..Phil Davies (15)…………46 pts
2nd Place…………………… Tommy Marshall (9)…….40 pts
Winner “B” flight……….Nigel Harrison (21)……….38pts
2nd Place…………………Will Brown (18)…………..36 pts
History only remembers the good scores and Phil’s phenomenal 46 will be remembered for a long while yet.
