AMVERTON COVE REPORT-17-5-2022

Cannon’s,

Nice and cool morning at Amverton with 3 flights starting to tee off before 8:00am. The course is always in a good shape with most of the greens quite slow costing some extra puts to most of us. Hans Benn was playing his 4th game with us and next game Hans will be a full member. The winner today with an impressive 97 for 41 points, was our birthday boy Dave Evans (Thanks for the 200.00Rm contribution), second place was the consistent Helmut Dicknoether with 92 for 39 points followed in third place by our guest Hans Benn with a respectable 85 for 36 points. With these results the LC of the year standings, Ricardo still kept the first place but Dave jumped from six to second place closing the race for the final 2 games, with Iain, Josef, and Siegmund also having a good chance to grab the first place. After the game nine of us had a good lunch at I Suka restaurant in a kind of Japanese room style with a nice view of the river. Next week some of our members will be in Cambodia playing with Klogs and we all wish them a great tour, lots of fun, and a safe comeback to Malaysia. Next week we will be playing Tasik Puteri with 3 flights booked. Enjoy your week, stay safe and see you guys soon.

Cheers

Ricardo

UPM RESULTS-29-03-2022

Cannon’s

It was a nice morning out at UPM club, experiencing a new course for the majority of us, nice layout,

quite challenging, especially a few blind tee shots, narrow fairways with water on the first nine, and hilly

on the second nine, very dry, with many balls lost. Overall the course was playable with the second

nine in worst conditions than the first but we all (except for Bernhard and Martin) enjoyed the golf.

On behalf of LC Society, I want to apologize to our new members Bipan and Roland who stayed alone

playing the last 5 holes, showing a lack of respect and etiquette toward the flight buddies and

consequently to the organizer. This is not our true philosophy and behavior, especially for the wrong

reasons, and hope this situation can be avoided. Back to the game, the winner today was Dave Evans

with a good score of 104/35, second place was Bipan with 101/34 followed by our guest Hans Benn,

playing his first game with us with 87 (sharing the lowest gross with Mike Williams) for 34 points.

With these results, the March winner is Bent Serritslev with 75 points and, after the March games

In the LC of the Year competition, Bipan is leading with 44 points, followed by Ricardo with 36 points

and Iain with 36 points. We welcome April games and looking forward to enjoying some Ramadan rates.

OBITUARY-GEOFF PARSLOW 4-3-1947-18-3-2022

Cannon’s

Geoff Parslow sadly passed away in Australia on the 18th March after a long struggle with cancer and he will be dearly missed by all who knew him.

Geoff was a Club Professional at Yarra Yarra Golf Club and Tweed Heads Golf Club in Victoria and a Touring Pro playing on the Asian Golf Circuit, the PGA Tour of Australia, and after he turned 50,  the European Seniors Tour. He won the Victoria Open in 1977 from Greg Norman and Johnny Miller and played in the Open Championship at Royal Lythan & St. Annes in 1979 finishing T54 behind the winner Seve Ballesteros.

Geoff was a partner with his brother Ted and Jason Winter in the very successful golf course design company Parslow & Winter Golf Design, responsible for numerous courses in Malaysia and beyond, the most notable being the redesign and redevelopment of TPC Kuala Lumpur.

After his playing career ended Geoff came to live in KL and in 2012 he joined Loose Cannons with Ted and played 324 games with us and joined several of the clubs Away Tours. Geoff brought a new dimension to Loose Cannons games. Geoff had a wicked sense of humor and was always ready to offer some advice to his playing partners, but in an off-the-cuff matey manner that was greatly appreciated.

Geoff will be missed by all who had the privilege to have known him.

Geoff Parslow
