Links Golf Society 8/8
At Pattavia On Wed Aug 8 S/ford
Phil Davies Takes All Before Him
Hot on the heels of leading the “Links Bar” team to victory in the first Pattaya Matchplay round at Pattana, Phil Davies’ devastating form has carried over to this game at the fabulous Pattavia Century Course today.
Phil’s score of 41 points had him well clear of second placed Chris Barker with 36 points, who has found form quickly since arriving back a week or so ago.
Then came a countback situation where Greg Proctor eased out Kevin LaBar for third spot, and the ever reliable veteran Alan Walker was once again in the mix with 33 points for fifth.
It’s only been two weeks since we last visited here and, as we have come to expect, everything about this course, including the price, is in tip top condition.
The comments on the “famous” greens were that they had quickened up slightly since our previous trip, but still very playable. The players in his group told of Phil’s putting this day, and how he just couldn’t miss, so he thinks the greens are just fine.
Four near pin markers out today.
Paul Chesney (4), Mark Effendie (7), Colin Service (13), while the 17th went begging, as no player could get on the green in regulation.
Winner …………..Phil Davies (9)…………41 pts
2nd Place………….Chris Barker (12)………..36 pts
3rd Place………….Greg Proctor (20)………34 pts c/back
4th Place…………..Kevin LaBar (14)……..34 pts
5th Place………….Alan Walker (27)………33 pts
Best Front Nine ( non winners)……Charley Gauci………20 pts
Best Back Nine (non winners)……..Darren Beavers…….18 pts.
Masyuki Okada, one of a number of Japanese players to join us recently, found himself in last place and got to try the “wig” for the first time.
Funny how it works sometimes. Charley Gauci was excited to win “ best front nine” with 20 points, but within a few minutes was wearing the “silly hat” for having the worst nine score of the day ( in his case, 5 points for the back nine).
Another fine day on a beautiful Golf Course for the “Links” players.
