Tee Time:All Day
Perfrement’s Perfect Day
Eastern Star has been in good condition for a long while this year and the Pattaya Links Golf Society took a four group playing field there on Friday, 15th June to play a stableford competition off the white tees. The day stayed fine allowing the group to complete the round with very few holdups.
As always the course is a tough test of golf with the copious amounts of water to the right and the dreaded OB on the left of many holes, and only the most accurate of golfers will reach a good score.
As it happened a full field average of 30 was a fair reflection of the day’s golf with a couple of excellent rounds rewarding the two six handicappers in the field as Petur Petursen recorded 33 points for fourth place, just one behind Pete Seil’s fine best gross effort (80) of 34 points which gave him third spot.
In second was a resurgent Tip Briney, so often blowing either hot or cold, with a more than tepid 35 points rewarding his steady and focussed round.
The day’s winner was Aussie Greg Perfrement who followed his big win at Burapha just a week previously with another fine performance giving him 38 points for the day’s best.
The near pins were held back allowing consolation awards for the best front nine of Tommy Marshall (18 points) and a rare prize for Mike Firkin for his best back nine of seventeen points.
Winner ……….Greg Perfrement (21)………38pts
2nd Place………Tip Briney (23)……………….35pts
3rd Place……….Pete Seil (6)…………………..34 pts.
4th Place……….Petr Petursen (6)……………33 pts
Selwyn Yates has yet to find his true form and again he took the wig as the day’s low scorer. Never mind Selwyn things are bound to get better soon, hopefully before you return home at the end of the month after your well-earned break
