SIAM Country Resort @ PSC Club C’ships 7/1 & 10/1
Tuesday was the 1st round of the PSC C/ships at Khao Kheow A & B with 2 groups of SCR players signed up. Bob Edwards was a late withdrawal due to injury, but 2 marker Jack Grinvold filled up the slot, and shot a nice 77 with a hole out eagle on his last, A9, which was enough to put him in the seeded group for Friday. George Gamble (24) was the overnight leader in D flight after a nice 40 points, while Joel, Willem & Paddy were not far off the pace in that flight. Jeff & Jonathan in A flight played some good golf, but both had “others” to blow their scores out, while Jim was in the C flight with some of the hottest players & scores of the day.
Thursday was a normal service SCR day with the crew headed off to Greenwood, the C & B combination our test on this fine day. The course was in good order with greens running fast & true. Sufficiently so, that golf course afficianado George Gamble was heard to describe the course as “not bad”, high praise indeed. Jeff Wylie (8) led the way with a hard fought 33 points, while George (24) signed for 32. Jonathan was in contention after 9 holes, but a few loose shots led to his relegation. NTPs were spread around between the Js, Jonathan, Jeff & Jim.
Friday was the 2nd & final day of the C’ships at Khao Kheow, with the SCR boys all keen to fly the flag high. Paddy Devereux (22) really showed some good golf to get into the mix with a fine 42 points, with George playing well again to complete his round under par and eventually finish 2nd in D flight, while Paddy finished 1 point off the pace for the placegetters. Joel & Willem both ended up getting amongst the technical prizes, each with a Long Drive & Joel also a NTP. After his 1st day 84, Jeff hit back with a best of the day 74, to end up leading the way home in the A flight nett. Jonathan & Jim both played well in patches, but those dreaded “others” took a heavy toll. Paddy & Jim did win lucky draws so all SCR attendees went home with something! SCR golfers would offer their congratulations to all the winners from the C’ships & their thanks to Joe & his team for a well run tournament.
