Christian Wins Again!
Once more the weather was perfect and another later start meant a bit of a sleep in but poor old Ken Hole missed the turn off and by the time he did get off Number 7 he encountered some really bad traffic and decided to head for home. Nonetheless we had a healthy group and although the course was quite busy our first group teed off right on time at 10.35 am. The course was looking very good with the greens a bit slower than normal but all in all conditions were excellent and the round was finished in just over four hours.
Once again it was Christian Boysen who led the way and captured first place with a fine 38 points and veteran Ted Morris came second one point further back. Our old friend Takeshi Hakozaki was third on 36 points and Andrew Woodall finished fourth with 35 points.
1st – Christian Boysen (14) – 38 points
2nd – Ted Morris (14) – 37 points
3rd – Takeshi Hakozaki (13) – 36 points
4th – Andrew Woodall (12) – 35 points
17th – Christian Boysen
Friday, 20th February – Phoenix, Lakes & Ocean – Stableford
Andy & Andre Get The Chocolates!
We had a fabulous turnout for our second “Fridays at Phoenix” competition with 12 groups on the Starting Sheet and a late tee time of 11.52 am seemed to suit many of them. Lakes & Ocean were once more the allocated nines and the first group teed off on Lakes 1 just about right on time. There was apparently a rain forecast but fortunately it stayed away from Phoenix and the weather was quite pleasant with the golf course as usual in tip top shape. There were no major delays despite the large number of players and the rounds were mostly completed in around four hours and twenty five minutes.
We had two flights with A Flight for handicaps 0 to 17 and B Flight for golfers with 18 handicap and over with five places in each flight plus 2 Nearest the pins and 2 longest first putts.
Andy Purdie was the winner in A Flight with an excellent 41 points, 3 points ahead of Francis Goyens in second spot and that man Christian Boysen was third with 37 points. In fourth place came Huw Phillips on 36 points and Bill Hewitt finished fifth with 35 points. B Flight was well won by the in form Andre Fortis who carded 39 points and in a count back for second and third with two golfers on 36 points it was Gary Williams (25 point back nine) who edged out Jim Lanzo (23 point back nine). Samorn Tanamsri finished fourth with 34 points and another count back saw Maurice Goyons (17 point back nine) grab fifth place from Nick Shaw (16 point back nine) with both on 33 points.
1st – Andy Purdie (9) – 41 points
