Links Golf Society 7/5

” Tottenham Tops the Table” at Eastern Star on Mon May 7 S/ford 

There was no lull in the heavily overcast conditions on Monday, 7th May as the Pattaya Links Golf Society visited Eastern Star to play a stableford competition off the white tees.

From the start the course, which was in good order throughout, was surrounded by sombre black clouds, and thunder echoed all around. Amazingly no rain fell however, and someone else, north of Ban Chang, received what the group had received on the previous two rounds.

Excessive humidity made the day an uncomfortable one but a tight competition nevertheless ensued.

 

In fourth place was Mike Firkin with 32 points, a couple behind Pete Seil in third with 34 points. The runner-up was Joe Nagle with 35 points, leaving Mike Tottenham the winner with 37 points, the day’s only sub par round.

Near pins went to Pete Seil (3), Bill Copeland (6) and Joe Nagle (17) whilst the thirteenth kept its secrets to itself as no golfer managed to find the “short stuff” on this day.

Consolation awards went to Tip Briney for his best front nine of 18 points and Derek Phillips for the pick of the back nines with 20 points.

 

Best Front Nine ( non winners)…….Tip Briney………..18 pts

Best Back Nine ( non winners)……..Derek Phillips…….20 pts

 

Winner ………..Mike Tottenham (22)…….37pts

2nd Place………..Joe Nagle (13)……………35pts

3rd Place……….Pete Seil (6)……………..34 pts

4th Place……….Mike Firkin (23)…………32 pts

 

Finally the honour of the wig went to group “newbie” Jack Robertson whose debut round managed a paltry score barely equal to his moderate handicap and indeed the wig fitted perfectly.

Well done all on an uncomfortably humid golf day at Eastern Star.
