Phil goes from Wig to Winner at Pattana on Wed Jun 20-S/ford
It’s a good thing we don’t allow gambling in Thailand as many would lose plenty if we bet on golfers, with the many drastic form reversals.
Two days ago Phil Davies wore the dreaded “wig” for having the worst score of the day. Today he wears the Green Jacket by having the best score of the day.
A small field of thirteen came out to play at the beautiful Pattana Golf Club, in fine weather and with a steady breeze, at times a bit stronger than that, for most of the round so to keep conditions pleasant.
The Golf Course was once again in excellent condition with the only “complaint” being that the greens on “A” course were a little grainy and slower. However, the “B” course greens were in their usual excellent shape.
Fairways were cut to suit, so there was no reason for, at least some players, to score well..
We did have good scoring! Phil Davies showed you can’t keep a good golfer down, for long, and went right to the top with a great 40 points to win by three.
The now consistent Greg Perfrement was there again, and with his 37 points took second spot. Seems this trip he is always somewhere on the podium.
Another very recent “wig” wearer is Dave Hewson, who has found some form since that day and only missed third place on a countback. Nigel Harrison runs hot and cold, but held out Dave to grab third for himself, both players with 36 points.
This is regarded as a fairly tough course to score on, but nine of the thirteen players had 30 points or better. Good golfing!
Having such a small field, we left the “near pins” at home, but still had “Best Nines”
Best Front Nine (non winners)…….Kevin Rogers….21 pts
Best Back Nine (non winners)……Tip Briney………18 pts
Winner ………….Phil Davies (12)……………..40 pts
2nd Place…………Greg Perfrement (20)………37 pts
3rd Place………….Nigel Harrison (21)…………36pts c/back
4th Place………….Dave Hewson (8)…………..36 pts
Snaring his FIRST HOLE IN ONE…KEVIN ROGERS….Congratulations.
Kevin did not see it go in, but his playing partners all did.
As the player with the worst score didn’t make it back to the Bar, nor did the second worst or the third, it was put to the vote. NO WIG today, much to Phil’s disappointment.
