Phil Davies Continues a Winning Streak


After teaming with Paul Smith to win the PSC Members Tournament on Monday at Laem Chabang with a massive team score of 49 points and an individual score of 42 points, Phil Davies kept his hot form going to take out today’s “A” flight and the Green Jacket, for which was he was the model for the tailor.

In second place was John Pierrel, who is also playing good golf, scoring 37 points to win the countback over Dave Buchanan who once again had 72 off the stick.


“B” flight saw Tip Briney, still showing very good form, grab first spot with 37 points. Barry Elphick came to join us again and had a good day out by clocking up 36 points for second place, while Geoff Wallace, on his return, took third with 33 points.


Treasure Hill is not known for very high stableford scores but today, of twenty eight players, six played to handicap or better and overall, sixteen had thirty points or better.

Most likely the reasons are the fact the course is in very good condition, although the greens are a little slower than normal and a new idea, I think, is that Treasure Hill moves the white and yellow tees together when a public holiday therefore, seemingly, making for a shorter course.

Iain Craigen is getting used to wearing the “wig” but was spared today by a returnee, Mike Souden, who had the lowest score, therefore taking over the mantel.

But no fear, Iain had the worst score on a nine and got to wear the “silly hat”.

So ends another day playing golf in the Land of Smiles, it’s hard, but has to be done…
