The Bunker Boy’s 08/02

Monday, February 8, Khao Kheow C.C. Yellow Tees — Stableford —
Twenty-two BB’s made the trek up the motorway to play the always challenging Khao Kheow Country Club. The weather was most obliging and it was a perfect day for golf: twenty-eight degrees, blue skies, with a slight, almost cool breeze.
The two Tony’s were the men of the day: Tony Scambler posting a very nice 40 stableford points, and Tony Robbins missing a hole-n-one on the island green by inches. A tap in birdie is such a nice feeling.
A-Flight
1st Tony Scambler (12) 40 pts
2nd Gerry Cooney (17) 35 pts
3rd Alan Freeman (5) 34 pts
B-Flight
1st Arthur Rowley (31) 35 pts
2nd Trevor Priestly (22) 33 pts
3rd Peter Habgood (24) 32 pts
Near Pins: Paul Carey, Peter Mannion, Keith Norman, Tony Robbins

Wednesday, February 10, Emerald G.C. — Medal —
The track today looked more like a Manhattan brownstone than a richly green gemstone: brown / parched / hardpan areas everywhere. Management most definitely needs to do a rain dance.
The scores reflected the poor conditions with numerous score cards being ripped up and set a sail. Not a single player was able to play to his handicap, and a net 76 took first place.
1st Geoff Parker (13) net 76
2nd Greg Berry (15) net 77 cb
3rd Dave Ashman (17) net 77 cb
Near Pins: Gordon Melia, Peter Mannion, Alex Kilcoyne

Friday, February 12, Mountain Shadow G.C. Blue Tees — Stableford —
It seemed like every golf society in Pattaya was gathered at the first tee on this beautiful Friday morning. After a long wait, it was difficult for the BB’s to get their mojo working and, again today, no one was able to play to his handicap: a mere 26 stableford average.
The word scruffy is not to be used lightly but most assuredly describes the condition of the track today: leaves / branches / grass cuttings / paper / cigarette butts strewn here and there and everywhere. Very unusual for such a nice course.
1st Mike Corner (19) 34 pts
2nd Gerry Cooney (17) 31 pts
3rd Ed Graham (10) 30 pts
Near Pins: Tony Robbins, Jimmy Carr, Mike Corner, Andy Scambler
