Truelove Strikes Again!

Another Monday morning in Pattaya and Mountain Shadow was our venue with just 2 groups signed up and raring to go. The weather was fine and hot and the golf course practically deserted so we were able to send our first group away 20 minutes ahead of schedule at 9.40am. The course was in good shape and the greens had quickened up a bit from last time we played there and with no other groups immediately in front our four ball cruised around in three hours & forty five minutes.

There were 2 golfers with 36 points and yet again Steve Truelove (21 point back nine) was declared the winner after a count back from Tony Cook (20 point back nine) in second spot with Wan Makmul finishing third with 33 points.

1st – Steve Truelove (7) – 36 points
2nd – Tony Cook (28) – 36 points
3rd – Wan Makmul (33) – 33 points

Wednesday, 24th June – Crystal Bay, C & A – Stableford

Torben Sparkles At Crystal Bay!

We had another small field with just two groups ready to tackle the Crystal Bay Golf Course and our intrepid & fearless stand in driver Thomas managed to get there via the back way thus avoiding the busy Highway 3 and the heavy traffic getting through Sriracha. With the B nine still closed it was to be C & A nines and our first group got away 15 minutes earlier than our scheduled 10.00am tee time. The weather was fine although with partly overcast skies but not a drop of rain was felt as we enjoyed the good condition of the course with most greens being fairly slow but much improved. Once more the course was relatively free of “traffic” and both groups finished their rounds in under three hours & forty five minutes.

Torben Lindgaard was the clear winner on the day with a fine 40 points and with 2 players on 33 points the count back resulted in second place going to your writer, Peter Blackburn (19 point back nine) with Mogens Melander (16 point back nine) finishing third.

1st Torben Lindgaard (32) – 40 points
2nd –Peter Blackburn (14) – 33 points
3rd – Mogens Melander (36) – 33 points
