Big Phil Does It Again!
It was back to the popular Khao Kheow for the first game of the week and after a few withdrawals due to sickness we ended up with a very healthy field of 30 golfers ready to tackle this challenging layout. Just 40 minutes up number 7 and we were there and with it not being too busy our first group was able to get away right on our early tee time of 9.10am. The weather was perfect although fairly hot but a gentle breeze did help somewhat but towards the end of the round the humidity was high as was the water consumption. The golf course was in great shape as ever with the greens very well prepared and fairly quick at times causing many three plus putts from quite a few in the field but as they say, it’s the same for everyone!
We had just the one Flight with four places and there were also rewards for nearest the pin on two of the par threes and longest first putts on the 9th and 18th greens.
Peter Kelly followed up his win at Royal Lakeside the previous Wednesday with an excellent 42 points and easily won the A Flight. There were 2 golfers on 36 points therefore a count back was required which resulted in second place being awarded to Paul Smith (18 point second nine & 12 points on last 6 holes) from Phil Davies (18 point second nine & 11 points on last 6 holes) in third spot and Mike Allidi came fourth with 33 points. It was another win for Satita “New ST” Cheoychao in the B Flight who had 41 points and another count back was needed with 2 players on 37 points which saw Nigel Harrison (19 point second nine) take second place from Barry Oats (18 point second nine) who finished third. There were 2 golfers with 36 points and the count back resulted in fourth place going to Colin Davis (23 point second nine) with Torben Lindgaard just missing out.
