Links Golf Society 6/5

 Marshall Master Class

Greenwood it was then on Wednesday, 16th May and the Pattaya Links Golf Society turned five groups out on the A and C nines to play a stableford competition.

The course was in fine condition in view of the recent daily storms and fairways were no more than soft but the greens were very good, Conditions were very uncomfortable with a 2 club/ three shirt humidity with the much anticipated storm duly arriving with a few holes to go.

Scores generally reflected the difficulty of the conditions, with one outstanding exception. Fourth place saw Icelandic golfer Petur Petursen securely in place with 33 points, one behind a resurgent Derek Phillips on 34.

Second place was occupied by Paul Smith’s 37 points and he shared the best gross figures of 74 with the day’s winner Tommy Marshall, victor with 43 astounding points, helped by a trio of good “up-and-downs” and a couple of long putts.

Near pin winners were Tommy Marshall (A5), Derek Phillips (C6) – almost an ace, Paul Smith and Barry Wellings.

Consolation awards went to Len Jones for the best front nine (17 points) and Maurice Roberts for his best back nine of 17 points also.

Winner ………..Tommy Marshall (9))………..43 pts

2nd Place………..Paul Smith (3))………………..37 pts

3rd Place……….Derek Phillips (22)………….34 pts

4th Place……….Petr Petursen (6)…………….33 pts

Best Front Nine (C) ( non winners)……Len Jones…………17 pts

Best Back Nine (A) ( non winners……Maurice Roberts….17 pts

In the absence of Mr Phil. Mr Len “emceed” the presentation and awarded the Booby Bevy to John Anderson after another frustrating round. The day had been long with an hour’s delay during the storm and most golfers were wilting by the time they returned to the Links, but the cool beers, as always, were very welcome.
