 Maurice Roberts’ Back is Back.

 

After not playing or not completing rounds a few times recently, Maurice came roaring back to his best with a Green Jacket winning score of 39 points on a difficult course.

Today, Pattaya Links Golfers loaded four mini buses and some cars to get our 36 golfers to the course in time to tackle the B and C combination. However, thanks to a bit of forward thinking from the starter, 3 of our 10 groups were sent off the C nine. Well done.

Anyone who has played this course knows how stunning and well presented it always is. As with most courses at the moment, recent rains had softened up the fairways, so lift, clean and place on fairways was the order for the day. The rough was long and challenging. There had been efforts made to cut it back, but everything was just too wet to make a decent job of it, so better to let it dry out.

The greens are always in great condition and even the rains had not harmed them. Yes, they are quick and true, but if you can control your putts, especially the downhills, good scores are possible.

Two flights today with the cut at 14 and under.

“A” flight saw a great win for Maurice.  Phil Davies has rediscovered some form to march into second spot with a very good 37 points, then came newcomer to Links, Adrian Pethick, on 36 points, while Michael Lohse won all the countbacks for fourth with 34 points.

“B” flight at last saw Wayne Peppernell smiling again after scoring 36 points to edge out  the in-form Bill Copeland in another countback. Jim Ferris is going OK of late and held third place with 33 points while Claudio Grossi filled fourth spot on 31 points.

Tip Briney has been missed while he visited his home country USA. He’s back now to resume normal transmission, and wearing his trademark “wig”.  Good onya Tip.

The lowest nine hole score of the day saw the “silly hat” fit on first timer, Craig Martin.

How lucky can we be? As the passengers for the last two buses were enjoying our complimentary beer from Pattana Sports Club ( Thank You), the heavens opened up with a vengeance, thunder, lightning, rain, the whole works.

All arrived back at the Bar nice and dry, but not too long after, that storm got to Soi Buakhaow.
