Hooray for Capt. Spaulding!
“Capt.”Simon, Allan, Mark and Phil back at TGC
Monday 26th – Rayong Green Valley – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Allan Rothwell (7) 67 net
2nd – Phil Smedley (9) 70 net
3rd – Mark Wood (9) 71 net
4th – Simon Spaulding (1) 72 net
4th – Wayne Cotterell (13) 72 net
That may have been from the Marx Brothers, but there was some seriously good golf out there this week and we were back to a full schedule on the plate. Allan Rothwell continues to score when he needs to and the medal comp today put the pressure on. Rothwell responded well, and his net 67 made him the easy winner of the monthly Antigua medal prize off his 7 handicap.
Playing off the Singha Open pin positions from the day before, Green Valley gave us a glimpse of how tough a course is set up for the pros and it was interesting to see our home course in a new light. The greens were the best ever, even with the downpours that left us an hour late getting back. All the more reason to applaud Rothwell’s performance today, so well played buddy, we owe you a shirt!
Also, a heads up for our road trip up to Kabinburi on the 18th and 19th of June. Drop us an email or come on by to sign up for this nice and easy break from Pattaya.
Wednesday 28th – Laem Chabang A & B – Stableford – White tees.
1st – Simon Spaulding (1) 39 points
2nd –Rusty Barfield (5) 38 points
2nd – Mark Wood (9) 38 points
Time for the glorious Laem Chabang once again and this eagerly anticipated venue had a full roster of golfers for today’s comp. The course was in great condition and the recently re-opened B side was nice to see after the 4 month closure. There was some fine scoring today and when the dust settled, it was our Aussie mate Simon Spaulding at the top of the pile. Playing off a handicap of just 1, Simon made no mistakes on the Nicklaus course. You do the math, but 39 Stableford points puts you in the territory of the pros!

Thursday 30th – Burapha B & D – Stableford – White Tees
1st – Simon Spaulding (1) 39 points
2nd – Mark Wood (9) 37 points
3rd – Dale Shier (13) 36 points
3rd – Oliver Bayzelton (23) 36 points
3rd – Tom Herrington (17) 36 points
It was looking pretty dicey with the weather as we set out for Burapha this morning, but the thunder stayed in the distance and it turned out to be a near perfect day for golf. The course was also in perfect shape even through the recent heavy rains. We were treated to the B and D tracks which made everyone happy. The Thursday change allowed us to take advantage of the summer special Sports Day rate which is also a bonus for this beautiful golf course.
As we look back on this week, it turned out to be owned by 2 golfers, Mark Wood and Simon Spaulding. These guys were on the podium at every comp, but with Simon taking 2 firsts, he just edges out Mark for Golfer of the Week! Today’s 39 pointer from Simon clinched it, and now he is on the way back to Australia to give the other blokes a chance! Great golf Simon! Let’s not forget our mate Dale Shier, finally coming good for third place on 36 points before he too is leavin’ on a jet plane for another 28 day stint on the rig.
