Alan, AVD, and Barry Win at Khao Kheow
Khao Kheow Country Club was on the day’s agenda, and it is never easy to run up a big score on this course. Today’s point totals were no exception. Alan Sullivan was the only player to better his handicap and Barry Elphick, was able to take first in the C flight, while totaling less than 30 points.
The greens were quick, and some large patches of the course were brown, with dried grass. I understood from my caddie, that there was a problem with the irrigation system. Mechanics at the pump house seemed to be working on the problem so let’s hope for the best.
Today we had a total field of 19 players, with eleven winners, spread over three flights. In the A flight (0 – 14) Alan Sullivan was on top, with 37 stableford points, playing from his handicap of 14. Second went to John Davis (10) with 34. Paul Sharples’ (13), 30 points, took third on count back over Steve Truelove and Brian Parish.
In the B flight, (15 – 22) Andre Van Dyk (17) was first with 35 points. Josef Buchberger (16) 31 points, took second over Brian Gabe (16) on countback.
In the C flight (23 and up), Barry Elphick (29) didn’t break 30 points, but his 29 was all he needed to claim first place. Patrick Poussier (28) also had 29 points, but lost the top spot on count back. Torsten Bischoff (23) placed third with 28.
The best front nine, not placing, went to Brian Parrish’s 17, while Rob Brown had the best back nine score, also with 17 points Congratulations to all the winners.
