The Golf Club we 25/10

Cordeiro Cracks it with a 42!

Monday 21st Oct. – Rayong Green Valley – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Jeff Cordeiro (8) 42 points
2nd – Bob McPhail (13) 41 points
3rd – Mike Newbert (10) 39 points

Dare I say it? Is the rainy season over for another year? We have had an absolutely gorgeous week of golf here in Pattaya and even the temperature has dropped a few degrees to make for perfect golf weather. Sure, it’s a bit clammy around mid-day, but not nearly as bad as it has been. We have all noticed a pleasant change, which really makes Pattaya a golfer’s paradise!
It sure must have helped Mr. Cordeiro today. With 4 birdies and a couple of bogeys, Jeff had one heck of a round to beat the field with a tremendous 42 points on the day. Jeff took second place here last week, but this time the putts just kept droppin’ and that is a great round of golf. Way to go buddy! Poor Bob McPhail, a 41 would usually be enough to take top spot, but he chose the wrong day for a great round and had to settle for second. Mike Newbert also showed a return to form and the Montauk Mauler was rewarded with 3rd place with his 39 points. Great job guys, we finally tore into RGV for once!

Captain Phil Smedley with Ken Aihara

Thursday 24th – Plutaluang Navy – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Jeff Cordeiro (8) 42 points
2nd – Bob McPhail (13) 41 points
3rd – Mike Newbert (10) 39 points

Today was the day for our pal Kenny Aihara to break out his new clubs. Those sleek new TaylorMade R11 irons and a new hot pink bag (no, it wasn’t Hello Kitty, I checked!) were just the ticket. The new putter, however, was not so hot so you may be seeing a hardly used flat club on ebay this week. Kenny has a legendary short game, and knows how to finesse those Vokey wedges in a truly masterful fashion. He did just that today, but our fearless Golf Captain Phil Smedley did him one better as the affable Aussie won it with just 33 points! Kenny shared 2nd place with Anders Pedersen and will now be on the lookout for a new putter that works as well as the new irons. Thanks for joining us for another fantastic week of golf in Pattaya, the home of golf in Thailand.

We must also congratulate Michael Winterburn for his 1st place Low Net at the Siam Country Club Members Tournament on Sunday the 27th. There was a lot of stiff competition out there and Michael did a great job of holding off the field for his victory.
