Torben Wins Again In A Close One!

After a week in Hua Hin it was good to be back with the Phantom crew again and after a long absence Pattaya Country Club was back on our schedule and we had four groups signed up to play. After a short drive we arrived at the course which was fairly quiet and on a fine & hot morning our first group got away about 20 minutes ahead of our scheduled 10.00am tee time. Plenty of drinking water was the order of the day (something a bit stronger for Ian Pickles) and all groups progressed reasonably quickly on the course which was in reasonable shape but very dry in many parts. Most of our groups completed their rounds in around four hours & twenty minutes.

No-one tore the course apart and Torben Lindgaard’s 38 points was good enough to win the day with a count back required to determine second & third spots as there were 2 golfers on 37 points. This resulted in Larry Gibb (17 point back nine) grabbing second place from his good mate John Tallett (15 point back nine) in third spot. With 2 golfers on 36 points another count back was needed to sort out fourth place and that went to John Pierrel (20 point back nine) with Ian Pickles (16 point back nine) just missing out.

1st – Torben Lindgaard (30) – 38 points
2nd – Larry Gibb (21) – 37 points
3rd – John Tallett (27) – 37 points
4th – John Pierrel (12) – 36 points
7th – Ian Pickles
12th – Stuart Mann

18th – John Tallett

Friday 11th September, 2015 – Phoenix, Mountain & Ocean – Stableford

Big Phill On Top At Phoenix Gold!

We had another good Friday field for this visit to Phoenix Gold with four groups signed up and there were several newcomers to welcome. American Tad Han from Korea, Michael Padilla from USA, Alan Taylor from Scotland, Kim Kjaereoell & Torben Sorensen from Denmark and Martin Kempton from Pattaya were all made to feel at home at Phantom Golf Society. After the short trip to the course we arrived to find things fairly quiet and were able to send our first group away off Mountain 1 thirty minutes before our scheduled 10.00am tee time. The weather was fine and hot and the golf course was in great shape with the greens on both nines of a high standard. With hardly anyone in front of us the pace was very good and we finished our rounds in a little over four hours.

Big Phill Davies was the winner on the day with a fine 38 points and the returning Neil Skilton came second with a solid 36 points. There were 2 golfers on 35 points so a count back was required which resulted in Tad Han (18 point back nine & 14 points on the last 6 holes) finishing third from Denis Steele (18 point back nine & 10 points on the last 6 holes) in fourth spot and Martin Kempton was fifth with 34 points.

1st – Phill Davies (13) – 38 points
2nd – Neil Skilton (5) – 36 points
3rd – Tad Han (5) – 35 points
4th – Denis Steele (14) – 35 points
5th – Martin Kempton (12) – 34
Mountain 8 – Neil Skilton
Ocean 7 – Tad Han

Mountain 9 – Tad Han
Ocean 9 – Martin Kempton
