Tee Time:All Day
There’s No Stopping This Boy!
Colin Service is in red hot form at the moment, and today wore the Green Jacket yet again. He says he made a couple of “small” tweaks to his game and is reaping the benefits.
In 11 starts since May 9, he has had 4 wins, 3 seconds, 2 third
s and one 4th. Certainly on a roll. Keep it going!
St.Andrews is one of the more expensive courses in the area and, because Golf Societies need to cater to all players, this course is not on the roster very often.
However, we were able to take advantage of their Sports Day Wednesday at the very good price of 2050 bht all in. (Carts are compulsory) Not cheap, but a chance for a once a year treat.
Nineteen excited players arrived at the course, checked in and ready to go. But, what a disappointment to find many greens had recently been scarified and sanded so, consequently, not the usual good greens here. Putting became difficult.
Fairways are in good condition, and the weather, alth
ough humid for most of the distance, did not produce any rain. Got away with it again!
We’ve talked about Colin Service and his great form and with 39 points stole the show. Two days previously it was Colin and Steve Truelove in a one two.
Same again today, but in reverse, Steve in second place with another good score of 37 points.
Nigel Harrison had an off day 2 days ago at Treasure Hill, but bounced back to take third with 34 points, while Phil Davies in his first outing since his trip to Wales came up with 33 points for the remaining spot.
Once again only three of the four near pins were won. It was just too hard, apparently, to get onto the 17th.
Near Pins: Colin Service (3), Gerry Conway (5), Ralph McConnell (10).
If your name has not appeared yet, there is still a chance for a Best Nine prize.
Best Front Nine ( non winners)….Mike Jeffreys……..20 pts
Best Back Nine ( non winners)…..Tommy Marshall…19 pts
Winner ………..Colin Service (19)……………39pts
2nd Place………Steve Truelove (10)…………..37 pts
3rd Place……….Nigel Harrison (20)………….34 pts.
4th Place……….Phil Davies (12)………………..33 pts
Marco Beer is heading home again soon, so Phil thought he might like to wear the “wig”.
But he got away with it… Peter Henshaw was the lucky recipient, just keeping Marco out.
Then the fans were turned off as Joy carried out the Birthday Cake with candles glowing
for Happy Birthday Ralph McConnell.
