Greenwood Attacked by Beavers

 

On Friday, 5th October the Pattaya Links Golf Society travelled to Greenwood golf club to play a stableford event on the A and C nines which were the worse for wear after prolonged rain the days before. Fairways were soft and squelchy, the raised approaches to all greens were soft and holding and humidity was very high. It would be quite a challenge to get near par in these conditions.

 

 

Thirty golfers were divided into two flights at fourteen and under and the top flight saw the expected low scores with fourth place going to Maurice Roberts with 30 points, trailing third placed golfer Adam Barton by one point.

 

Runner up was Masa Takano who lost the top spot on countback with 33 points. The man who beat him was Phil Davies with the same 33 points.

 

 

The second flight followed the same pattern with one huge exception. Stu Thompson made fourth with 29 points with Bill Copeland third with 31 points.

 

In second place was Derek Phillips on 35 points. The exception to the day was the performance of Darren Beavers who chewed the course up with 40 points.

 

How on earth did he do it? Well on C1 three-for-five helped as did C9 where four-for-four ended his fine round. The course suited his long hitting and his back nine did the trick with 23 points coming from the very soggy C track.

 

 

Wayne Peppernell recorded the best front nine of sixteen points, with Chris Barker matching the effort on the back nine. Chris’ front nine was another matter entirely as his paltry eight points guaranteed him the “silly hat”, second only in infamy to Alex Sala, whose absence from the presentation denied him the notoriety as the latest wig wearer.

 

 

Near pins went to Iain Jones, Colin Service and Bill Copeland
