Vallance Beats the Water and Khao Kheow
With Songkran water splashing all around, 9 hardy golfers turned out for the trip to the beautiful Khao Kheow golf course.
Pattaya has been experiencing very hot and wearing conditions of late, and today was more of the same. However, this course was once again presented in wonderful condition.
Shooting a good score here can be difficult, but today, on his return, Gordon Vallance flew out of the blocks to pile on a great 41 points.
This set him head and shoulders above the minor placegetters. On another day golfers would be looking for a Green jacket if they scored 36 points, but not today.
Phil Davies pinched second place on countback from the unlucky Paul Chesney.
Jon Batty also had 36 points but just missed a spot on the podium.
No near pins, but we did have Best Nines.
Best Front Nine (non winners)….Tip Briney……22 pts
Best Back Nine (non winners)…..Jon Batty……19 pts
Winner …………….Gordon Vallance (21)………..41 pts
2nd Place…………….Phil Davies (13)……………..36 pts c/back
3rd Place…………..Paul Chesney (22)…………..36 pts.
Can this be a new record? The “wig” is presented to the player with the lowest score for the day. Tip Briney had the best front nine with 22 points, but then a gigantic form crash saw him manage just 9 points for the second nine for a total of 31 points.
We will check the records but think 31 points is the highest score ever to win the “wig”.
All back safe albeit a little damp to see Gordon trying on the Green Jacket.
