Rendezvous we 16/05
Tuesday was a long awaited return to Bangpra, a course that is not readily accessible throughout the High Season. The course was in good condition, with the greens running truly & noticeably more receptive to the well struck shot than previous years. The heat was oppressive, so let’s hope for a bit of breeze to come in over the next few weeks. Graham Briggs (26) playing the course for the first time, shot a day’s best of 36 points, ahead of Jeff Wylie (7) who signed for 34points, with Colin Quinlan (9) rounding out the podium with 33 points. NTPs were spread around between Colin, Jeff, Dave & Owen.
Pattana was our venue for Thursday’s game, with the B & A combination our test, again in the heat, with little breeze for relief. The course was in good condition, smooth well grassed fairways, while the greens were running smooth & true. Scores were generally pretty close, with Colin Quinlan (9) just edging Owen Walkley (9) on countback 19/18 after both signed for a solid 34 points. Colin & Owen hogged the prizes today, with the 2 of them sharing the NTPs between them also.
We had a group attend the PSC T/ment at Pleasant Valley on Friday, with mixed results. Joel Flor (20) got 3rd spot in D Flight with 40 points, although Clive Hoseason (20) was a good thing beaten after 25 points on the front 9, but faded badly, to just miss the prizes. Same could be said for A Flighter Jeff Wylie, who was playing well but had a brain fade mid round to shoot himself out of the T/ment. Jeff & Joel each got a technical, Jeff with a NTP, while Joel got the Long Drive.
