Vernon & Atwell win two-ball better-ball at Pattaya Country Club
As we had an even number of players Monday, our illustrious leader Jimmy Carr decided we should, by way of a change, play a two-ball better-ball competition. In order to make it as fair as possible teams were randomly picked prior to leaving the bar.
Winners Daryl & Geoff
As it turned out there was little or nothing between all the groups and the winners were decided by countback. Daryl Vernon & Geoff Atwell finished on equal points with Jimmy Carr and Dave Ashman but with a superior back nine were declared winners.
Curiously the team with the highest combined Stableford score came last as they didn’t dovetail very well.
1st Daryl Vernon & Geoff Atwell 42 points
2nd Jimmy Carr & Dave Ashman 42 points
Near pins Jimmy Carr, Michael Brett, & Geoff Parker X 2.
Last week at Greenwood we saw some very long driving from Les Cobban and Jimmy Carr, Monday Daryl left them both in his wake pounding out some monsters. Daryl denies taking any special protein shakes, or doing any unorthodox gym exercises to assist. It must be power built up over the years at Fylde Rugby Club.
Pattaya Country Club was heavily booked at the time we made our booking but in the interval, most of the bookings canceled for some reason leaving us with the course virtually to ourselves apart from a couple of groups out ahead. We were able to hit off ahead of schedule and finish in a respectable time. The course was in as good condition as we have seen it and so it was decided to immediately schedule another round on next month’s roster.
