Mon 28th Sept – Phoenix
With three groups playing at Phoenix Gold golf and resort on a very cloudy day to start with that turned to light rain later in the round. Just getting to the course was fun as Sandy was a little under the weather from a late night out the night before, and a moose cider was on hand when he got to the starters hut to help him out, that’s what friends are for isn’t it.
Anyway off we went and his first drive was unbelievable straight down the middle and only about 150 out a great drive indeed but alas in went downhill from there. It was quite a fast round of golf for the first nine holes then it slowed up a bit and the rain clouds were threatening. The course was in great condition as per usual, with the amount of rain this course has had there was only a few fairways that carts were not allowed on which made it easier on Capt Cripple and Gerard.
Coming down the 18th fairway it started to rain so after the Captain had taken his second shot, the PSC President Tim said, see you in the locker room having only scored 10 points on this nine he didn’t deem it prudent to get wet so he went in closely followed by Sandy leaving Tim to finish by himself but alas he put his third shot OB and also beat a hasty retreat.
Now to the scoring we all got a lesson from one of the newer members today who scored 18 points on the front nine and 26 on the back,( I always knew the Ocean loop was easier). Coming in third place was Thiery Petrement with 33 points, second spot went to Serge Straeten with 35 points, and now to the new member with 44 points Skip Jefferies took that spot and promptly bought everybody a drink. Once again there were no two’s recorded.
