Frank Wins His First Monthly Mug
Always one of the highlights for the Tropical Golfers, the Monthly Medal Mug is up for grabs! Its easy to grab because it’s a nice mug with a big handle, but hard to win. This Friday fifteen golfers decided to give it a try… some for their first trophy, others hoping for bookends or a full collection. Forgiving Crystal Bay was on the agenda today, giving everyone a good shot.
Assigned the B + C nines (will A ever re-open), we were able to tee off a bit early in breezy conditions. The course was in overall good condition given the price. A bit weedy in places, but playable. One thing that confused many golfers was the quite slick and sloped B-side greens, and just as we were getting used to it, the C-side did an about-face and went to quite slow. Well, proper golfers don’t complain but just accept what the course hands you and tend to business. Stableford scores usually tend to be a bit high at CB, but today the stroke competition tempered things, as it usually does.
Results: The only one to break handicap, and winning his first Monthly Mug, Frank Xin (h/c 26) took proud honors with his net 68. Beverages do taste better when sipped (or gulped) from The Mug, right Frank? Next Takeshi Hakozaki (12) used his home course knowledge to win a multi-count-back at net 73 over John Davis (10) and Paul Sharples (15). John Pierrel (11) was next in line with net 75, and Brian Parish (11) was surprised to get the final mention with a good enough net 78. Cheers!
