Links Golf Society 2/3
Pattaya Links Golf Society 2/3 at Mt Shadow S/ford
Bren’s the Guvnor
The Pattaya Links Golf Society ended its current golfing week with a trip to Mountain Shadow to play a stableford competition on the course which is looking a little jaded at the end of high season with dry, hard fairways giving run but some very tight lies. The weather was also very warm and humid in the run up to the traditionally steamy month of April.
The field of three dozen golfers found two flights today divided at fifteen and under and conditions made for low scoring yet again. In the second flight Larry Gibb found himself in third place with 29 points, losing out on countback to the veteran Barry Oats who took second.
The flight winner was again Tony Browne whose consistency seems never in doubt. This time Tony recorded 32 points.
The top flight saw slightly better scores with Dave Edwards returning 30 points for third, a couple behind the runner-up Jon Dean on 32. The winner was scratch golfer Brendan McGovern whose gross figures showed only two dropped shots to the track as he posted 34 points. It was a quality performance indeed from a more than competent golfer.
Near pins went to Vic Wright (5), Masa Takano (8), Jon Dean (15) and Adam Barton (17)
Winner ”A” flight Brendon McGovern (0) 34pts
2 nd Place Jon Dean (12) 32 pts
3 rd Place Dave Edwards (11) 30 pts
Winner “B” flight Tony Browne (17) 32 pts
2 nd Place Barry Oats (26) 29pts c/back
3 rd Place Larry Gibbs (23) 29 pts
Bobby Oliver still showed signs of his very recent flight with his “wig” winning performance for the lowest score of the day.
Thus ended a tough week with PLGS when more than a hundred rounds of competition golf witnessed only five sub-par rounds in total. Stick with it lads, chins up as the next week is always better!
