Pattaya Links Golf Society at Khao Kheow 19/2 S/ford
Caven Contented at Khao Kheow
The week began for the Pattaya Links Golf Society with a trip to Khao Kheow to play a
stableford competition on the C and A nines which were in their usual good condition.
Another large field of 45 golfers saw three flights set with the cuts coming at 11 and 18, a
measure of the quality of the golfers in the field.
The top flight saw scratch golfer Brendan McGovern record an equal day’s best gross with
his 74 giving him 34 points for third place. The top two places were subject to a countback
with Masa Takano on 38 points just nosing out the second best gross of the day, Mike
Allidi’s 38 points.
In the second flight scores were more diverse with Irishman John Kelly taking third place
with 34 points, and Stu Thompson making the frame in second for the first time in a long
while with 35 points.
The flight winner was the ever consistent Tony Browne with 38 points.
The third flight was even more diverse with 31 points making third place and putting a
smile on Harry Lankoff’s face. In second was Larry Slattery with 32 points on his final
round before some R & R in Vietnam.
The flight winner was Niall Caven and he also was awarded his first Green Jacket for his
best score on the day, 39 points. Another contented customer.
The same could almost be said of Tommy Marshall who donned the ‘wig’ for the first time
after his card was adjudged the worthy winner.
Consolation prizes went to Rod Stevens (best front nine, 21 points) and Kevin From (best
back nine, 18 points).
Near pins went to Andrew Purdie (C3), Phil Davies (C8), Kevin From (A3) and Bart
