Clever Kenny clicks again!
Kenny and caddy getting ready for battle.
Monday 30th – Rayong Green Valley – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Ken Aihara (4) 41 points
2nd – Muffy Kerr (12) 39 points
3rd – Steve Wentford (12) 37 points
Not to rub it in, but we have been experiencing some perfect golf weather here of late. I see from the news that the UK and the US are having a pretty monstrous winter and hope those back home get through it the best they can. Here in Pattaya, it has been just beautiful. Hope things turn around for you soon.
Time for the last round of golf for 2013! We set off to Green Valley once again to find the course in fine condition as usual.
It was another win for Kenny Aihara, now playing off just a 4 handicap, as his 41 points was a great round on this breezy afternoon. A fine effort by Muffy saw his card in with a 39 and Stevie Wentford just behind on 37.
Thursday 2nd – Crystal Bay – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Peter Wilson (7) 38 points
2nd – Ken Aihara (4) 37 points
2nd – Glen Hendricksen (10) 37 points
2nd – Robbie Taylor (12) 37 points
And now for the first day of golf to break in the New Year! We skipped playing yesterday as it was a holiday so today we had the lads off to Crystal Bay. Peter Wilson was the star of the show and a trio of 37’s had Ken, Glen and Robbie snapping at his heels. The greens were superfast and it was a long slog at 6,600 yards, but at least we were getting some roll on the ball!
Friday 3rd – Khao Kheow A&B – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Steve Weller (7) 39 points
2nd – Robert Moore (14) 37 points
3rd – Ken Aihara (4) 35 points
3rd – Phil Smedley (12) 35 points
3rd – Brad Gearie (12) 35 points
We thought it would be a good idea to play Khao Kheow this week as we will be here next week for the P.S.C. Annual Members Tournament. A bit of practice never hurt anyone!
Hey Stevie, it’s about time! Mr. Weller finally got his just desserts this week and had a terrific round at Khao Kheow with a 39 on the card. The timing is perfect as this is a warm up week for the annual Mulberry Ryder Cup which tees off in Khao Yai on the 13th of January. Or are we peaking too early? Time will tell, but the best of luck to Team Rest of the World that Weller is on and Team England with some of Blighty’s finest out to Pattaya for this 11th edition of the January classic.
Also joining us today were 3 of Aberdeen’s finest, and this trio of Scotsmen finally had a round of golf in good, comfortable weather. Neil Cameron, Duncan Kerr and Sugar Robertson must have been shocked to have a mild breeze and see the sun actually shining on a golf course. These difficult conditions wreaked havoc on their game so no podium finishes for the lads and we will spare you the gory details of their scores.
In case you haven’t noticed, this week saw Ken Aihara with a win and 2 other podium places, so thanks and a tip of the hat to our buddy with the meanest short game in town.
Have a Happy New year to all and see you for more great golf in our Pattaya paradise.
