Pattaya Links Golf Society 23/3

Pattaya Links Golf Society at  Greenwood on Fri  Mar 23  S/Ford.

Five Star B & B at Greenwood

The Pattaya Links Golf Society travelled to Greenwood on Friday, 23rd March to play a stableford competition on the A and C nines. The course was in excellent condition with grassed fairways giving run and the truest greens anywhere in the province. The weather was excellent with a cool breeze throughout and all forty three golfers enjoyed the trip immensely, The field was divided into two flights at sixteen and under.

In the top flight fourth place was occupied by Tommy Marshall, his 33 points finishing three behind third placed golfer Kevin LaBar. Welshman Colin Smith took second place with 37 points which included a near pin on C6.

The flight winner was American golfer Chris Barker whose 23 points on the front nine set the standard for the rest of his round, finishing as he did with 42 points.

In the second flight Len Jones finished in fourth place with 35 points, having been edged out of third by Rod Steven’s better back nine. In second place was John Mason with another creditable round of 36 points.

Bart Bingham produced the round of his life just 48 hours before, and one can imagine the elation he felt sinking his final putt for 42 points, recording eighty three points on his latest 36 holes. It really was an amazing round and one which will see his handicap suffer a large cut to test his resolve in rounds next week.

Near pins went to Dave Heyes (A2), on his final round this trip, Chris Barker (A6) and Colin Smith (C6), Unsurprisingly C3 into the wind at 200 yards saw the green unscathed.

Consolation prizes went to Derek Phillips for his best front nine (19) and Mike McGuigan with the best back nine of 19 points on his final round this trip. Other old friends leaving after today were Dave Moriarity and Kevin Timbrell and the PLGS wish them the best of health and golf until their return next time.
