Mon 17th Aug – Bang Pakong
On our last visit to Bangpakong prior to lockdown and the advent of the rainy season, the course was in disappointing condition hence the extended interval between visits. Today it was back to what we have come to expect except for a few wet areas on fairways where the watering system may have broken down. The weather was the hottest we have had in some time and the normal cooling breeze was absent.
Geoff Parker was the man in form today with a very nice round of thirty-nine points narrowing the gap on Tony Robbins in the race for the golfer of the month. Tony on the other hand already has just about enough points to take the trophy, even though we are only halfway through the month, today he had another good round with thirty-six points. Les Cobban failed by his standards today, no thirty-nine points, instead thirty-four to take third place. He was however on target on the par threes taking two near pins, with one each going to Jimmy Carr and Michael Brett.
1st Geoff Parker (18) 39 points
2nd Tony Robbins (21) 36 points
3rd Les Cobban (8) 34 points
Near pins Jimmy Carr, Michael Brett, & Les Cobban X 2.
