Friday, June 12th – Bangpra
A bright sunny day for our last game of the week at Bangpra. Despite all the recent rain, the water catchments on the course remain virtually empty, the course however has benefited greatly and is in top condition. The greens were very fast but not ridiculously so as has been the case in the past.
For much of the round, we were held up by a pair of six balls, I guess its part of golf in Thailand and we simply have to grin and bear it, it’s just one of those things that happens occasionally. The rationale behind it is sixes can play together if all are in carts, however it doesn’t really work.
Very modest scores again today, only Jimmy Carr managed to have a decent card of thirty-six. Jimmy has been absent from the winner’s circle for a while, normally when Jimmy gets into form he holds it for a while so look out next week to see him back again.
Michael Brett had a real curate’s egg of a game with a couple of good holes and a lot of rubbish to finish on thirty-one in second place. Dave Ashman likewise had a mixed round and finished third on thirty points. Geoff Parker took one near pin with Jimmy taking two, one remained unclaimed.
1st Jimmy Carr (16) 36points
2nd Michael Brett (15) 31 points
3rd Dave Ashman (22) 30 points
