PAUL DURKAN LOVES LAEM CHABANG
About two weeks ago, Paul Durkan had a resounding victory here at Laem Chabang, scoring 44 points.
That’s a hard act to follow, but Paul was the winner again this day, but with a more modest 35 points.
Tip Briney played his best ever game at Laem Chabang to also score 35 points and take second spot after losing a countback to Paul.
Now, we don’t see the name Walter Baechli in the winner’s circle too often these days, but he jumped right into third place with a handy 34 points.
The name Mark On is sure to appear somewhere in the results and, here, he took fourth place with 32 points after winning a countback over Kelly Phelps.
A great score of 23 points got Serge Straeten the ‘best front nine’ for non winners. Just a pity he couldn’t carry that through on the C course.

We know, of course, that there has been a lot of rain about, so we played lift, clean and place. This was good as, although the fairways are in good condition and looked inviting, they were damp and a little soft, even managing some ‘mud balls’ in places. This may be a reason for the lower scores than we would have expected.
The weather, once again, was overcast for most of the round and hot. A nice strong, cooler breeze did come in near the end, albeit too little, too late.
While Laem Chabang holds the special price of 1900 bht all-in, Links Golf will continue to take advantage of playing at this top class golf course.
