Landis, Mick and Buckers Win at Pattavia
21 players gathered at BJ’s Holiday Lodge on Beach Road, Soi 3, to wake up with coffee or breakfast. The 2019 changes to the rules of golf have only been in effect for one week and provided much of this morning’s conversation. Leave the pin in to putt? Hmmm.
The day’s course was Pattavia Century Golf Club and it proved quite a challenge, with only Mick Coghlan able to score better than his handicap. A few sprinkles of rain fell as we started to tee-off, but as soon as umbrellas were opened, the sun was shining again. The weather would not an issue today and after a nice round of golf, everyone packed into the cars for the drive back to Pattaya.
Today we had a total field of 22 players, with eleven winners, spread over three flights.
The minimum half the field being a prizewinner is proving very popular.
In the A flight (0 – 15) Landis Brooks was on top, with 35 stableford points, playing from his handicap of 8. Second went to Mashi Kaneta (13) with 32, and Paul Weatherley (15) was in third with 31 points.
In the B flight, (16 – 22) Mick Coghlan (22) was first with 37 points. Second was Joe Sparwirth (22) with 30 points, ahead of Daryl Evans (22), besting Brian Gabe on countback, with 29.
In the C flight (23 and up), Graham Buckingham (24) was first with 34 points. Don Carmody (26) claimed second on count back over Frank Xin (23), with 32 points
The best front nine, not placing, went to Brian Gabe’s 17, while John Davis had the best back nine score, with 18 points. Congratulations to all the winners.
