The Golf Club 5/12
Monday 5th – Green Valley – Stableford – White Tees
T -1st – Paul Walsh (15) 39 points
T -1st – Ernie McInerney (10) 39 points
T -3rd – Alan Rothwell (7) 36 points
T -3rd – Dave Mather (8) 36 points
Hello’s and goodbye’s see Ian Brimble heading back to the States as we say welcome back to Smilin’ Dave Mather and Alan Rothwell, the Mayor of New York. Yes, it’s that time of year that signals high season approaching. I sure hope it is!
Ian has had a good run of late and today he nicks the Caddy Smile near pin prize. New arrivals Dave and Alan share the podium on 36. That’s a nice start fellas!
Top of the totem pole is shared by Paul Walsh and Ernie McInerney who both turned in solid scores of 39 points today. I think it’s the Kha Thom Moo helping Ernie on the back 9!
Tuesday 6th – Pattavia Century – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Bryan Carroll (18) 36 points
2nd – Robbie Taylor (14) 35 points
T – 3rd – Kenny Aihara (4) 34 points
T – 3rd – Alan Rothwell (7) 34 points
Our praise of Pattavia continues and a full sheet of golfers will attest to the quality of this golf course. These greens are not for the faint of heart and you must accept the fact there will be a few 3 putt greens. Kenny Aihara and Alan Rothwell came back with good scores of 34 points to tie for third. Alan also took the near pin prize. Robbie Taylor must be well chuffed to beat them both by a stroke!
With an outstanding 36 points, Bryan Carroll takes top prize out here today. Bryan is one of the few golfers who have played both Augusta National and Pine Valley. Bryan actually won the Ransome trophy at Pine Valley as a member of the Wentworth Club in London a few decades back. Carroll seems to have his game together this trip as he had a win last week also, so ya better watch out!
Thursday 8th – Greenwood – Stableford – Yellow Tees
1st – Alain Hefner (18) 45 points
2nd – Alan Rothwell (7) 40 points
T – 3rd – Ben Denham (1) 38 points
T – 3rd – Paul Walsh (15) 38 points
Monday’s winner is back up on the podium as we see Paul Walsh in a draw with long hittin’ Ben Denham for a third place tie. You would think a big red 40 at the top of your card should be good enough for the win, right? Most days yes, but today Alan Rothwell could only muster second on the leaderboard.
With a personal record best, Alain Hefner’s tally of 45 points takes the cake and takes the plate. Alain is joining us from France but seems to be quite happy in the tropics. Our buddy Todd Benedis took the Caddy Smile near pin, but then lost it to Nate on the Ohio State game!
Friday 9th – Silky Oaks – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Fred Birch (20) 36 points
2nd – Dave Ferris (19) 36 points
3rd – Ian Stockton (18) 36 points
4th – Fred Graham (17) 36 points
There were some interesting numbers out there today as the leaderboard will attest to. In the end, it was a strange four way tie for first place!
The course was great in the fairways, but still a bit wooly on the greens. There were no complaints from the peanut gallery as the all-in rate of 1,750 baht shows tremendous value for this course. Ally Greer had no problem with the near pin so thanks for the contribution to the Caddy Smile prize.
We have not seen Freddy’s name in lights lately so it was good to see him share the win the other regulars. Ian Stockton and Dave Ferris (your Monthly Medal winner of last week) also strode home with 36 on the card.
Fred Birch has also been hiding from the podium lately, so we hope this win here today will bring him back for more.
Thank you for your support gentlemen, and keep it in the fairway!
