Tee Time:All Day
A Refreshed Paul Chesney Too Good
The rains seem to be staying away from our area at this time, but the days are still hot, humid and wearing for golfers while out on the golf course.
No rain means more work for the Greenkeepers to keep courses up to their best condition. Somehow the management at Pattavia Century are doing a fine job, as today this course was, as always, in splendid condition.
The greens have been allowed to grow a tad longer, as has been the case for some time now. No problem here, as they are not as slick as they once were, and now much more putter friendly.
That doesn’t mean your putt won’t still go sailing past the hole if you miss, but not quite as far, and may actually stay on the green. The grass may be shorter, but the contours are the same.
A good field of eighteen “Links” golfers arrived by mini bus and cars to find another Golf Club with a terrific price of 1350 bht G/fee, Caddy, Cart. Thank you Pattavia.
Paul Chesney has been away for a short visit to the UK and, in just his second game back, took on Pattavia and won. His 39 points was a great result and gave him the chance to again don the Green Jacket.
Phil Davies has run into some very good form recently and, following on from his 40 points 2 days ago, has scored another fine 38 points to take second spot.
Mike Tottenham is consistently around the mark and Bryan Barrell sometimes surprises himself, (and others), when he has a good score. These two fought it out for third, with Mike getting up in a countback, both with excellent scores of 37 points.
Four near pin markers out today and all were won:
Tip Briney (4), Dave Hewson (7) Phil Davies (13), Tommy Marshall (17)
Winner ………….Paul Chesney (21)………….39 pts
2nd Place…………Phil Davies (12)……………..38 pts
3rd Place………….Mike Tottenham (22)……..37 pts c/back
4th Place………….Bryan Barrell (33)…………37 pts
For those not already mentioned there is the best half games to be won.
Best Front Nine ( non winners)……Peter Henshaw……..19 pts c/back
Best Back Nine (non winners)……..Ian Corica…………….19 pts.
The complimentary meal of Penang Curry was followed by the presentation of the Green Jacket to Paul.
So excited was Dave Jarvis for the “wig”, he gave Phil no chance to tease others. He jumped up ready to be fitted. Not telling his score..
