Links Golf Society 1/6
At Emerald on Fri Jun 1, 2018 S/ford
Tight Finish at Stormy Emerald
The proposed stableford event at Emerald was very much in doubt right up until the scheduled tee off time on 1st June as the Pattaya Links Golf Society displayed all the patience derived from the experience of the wettest May in years.
Until 11am the round was in doubt with flooded greens and soft fairways but in the event the round began only six minutes late with greens already drying out. It was a miracle and full marks to the small field, splendidly stewarded by Colin Service, for their fortitude on the day and as a result a close contest ensued.
Aussie golfer Mike Tottenham again made the frame with a fourth placed finish on 29 points whilst Colin Service again produced a good round finishing on 32 points in third place.
Two Aussie/Italian golfers, Livio Marrone and Vito Cirelli, coming to the end of their first golfing experience in Thailand, went head-to-head over the eighteen holes with Vito’s extra point on the back nine just enough to take the win on countback with 36 points.
There were no technicals on this day but Tip Briney would have qualified for the wig had Mr Phil been back from his break in UK. Tip is left to wonder whether it will be presented in retrospect when the boss returns next week!
After a fretful May the PLGS regulars are hoping that “flaming” June brings better flaming weather.
