𝑷𝑬𝑻𝑼𝑹 𝑴𝑨𝑲𝑬𝑺 𝑰𝑻 𝑩𝑨𝑪𝑲 𝑻𝑶 𝑩𝑨𝑪𝑲 𝑾𝑰𝑵𝑺
After a couple of days of having no rain, it came back hard on this Wednesday morning as we arrived at Links Hotel.
Messages and phone calls came from golfers, but we decided to wait for an hour to see what happens.
Two players decided to cancel but the rest showed up early, and ready to go. As our bus arrived the rain eased slightly, so all agreed to head for the course.
Amazingly, as we entered the gate at Green Valley, the rain stopped, happy days!
Another Society had headed to the first tee at St.Andrews so our groups followed.
The rain did come back at about the time our groups were on the 15th or 16th tee. There were two very slow five ball’s ahead of the Society groups and all agreed that we might have finished before getting wet, if only..
𝗣𝗲𝘁𝘂𝗿 𝗣𝗲𝘁𝘂𝗿𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗻 had his handicap lowered by one shot after scoring 40 points two days ago, but that could not stop him.
His past three games have produced scores of 37, 40 and now, another 37 points. This man is making the very best of his short stay in Thailand for this trip.
Nine days ago, Bob Paine wore the winner’s Green Jacket for the first time. That good form continues with another solid score of 35 points for the second place.
Newcomer to our group, Matt Thurnburn, scored a handy 33 points to grab third spot.

1st Place – 𝗣𝗲𝘁𝘂𝗿 𝗣𝗲𝘁𝘂𝗿𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗻 (𝟱) – 𝟯𝟳 𝗽𝘁𝘀
2nd Place –𝗕𝗼𝗯 𝗣𝗮𝗶𝗻𝗲 (𝟮𝟮) – 𝟯𝟱 𝗽𝘁𝘀
3rd Place – 𝗠𝗮𝘁𝘁 𝗧𝗵𝘂𝗿𝗻𝗯𝘂𝗿𝗻 (𝟭𝟳) – 𝟯𝟯 𝗽𝘁𝘀
This course is in very good condition, even though quite wet for the most part so, of course it was lift, clean and place.
Greens are clean and playing well and the rough, well, the rough is the same as most courses right now. It will be better when they can get to them with the mowers.
It was little later getting back, but all eight of the players enjoyed the course, even if a little wet at the end.
𝑷𝒉𝒐𝒕𝒐: Winner, 𝗣𝗲𝘁𝘂𝗿 𝗣𝗲𝘁𝘂𝗿𝘀𝘀𝗼𝗻. If you think this looks familiar, you are correct. Two in a Row.
