Results – Nilai Springs – 27th July 2010

8 players registered and 7 turned up on time. (Bernard had difficulties and joined his flight on the 8th.) We were graced by the appearance of Mr. Smith who proposed walking the course and taking photos for the blog. Unfortunately the marshals had other ideas and he was escorted from the course for inappropriate footware!!

The monthly trophy was won by Ian Geekie with a gross 96 and 40 points. Ian cut 4 next week. Runner up was Erol Akinci with 91 for 39. Erol cut 1. Best Gross was Erol (91). Most Golf – Yours Truly with 111.

There was some uncertainty after the game as regards whether or not Barry was going to show up and lead us to a local hostelry for F&B…  In the event we stayed at the club and the food was rather good.  And on the subject of Barry I received a rather odd email from him the previous week after the announcement that we would play at Awana Genting Golf Resort – too far to go, would need to stay the night, blah, blah.  I transpired that he thought Awana Genting was up in the Cameron Highlands!!  Clearly ‘Genting’ did not provide an adequate enough clue at to the location of the course…….former captain of industry, and all
Another worthy mention was the flight spearheaded by Ian – and submitting a dogs breakfast of a scorecard.  This because nobody in the flight was quite sure how to work out the Stableford points……..?
And a deserved mention must go to the beer consumption which amounted to one mug of Carlsberg and one bottle of stout – between 11 thirsty golfers…..
With yours truly off to London this week adn Mike still unable to swing a club the subject of appointing a new Pro Tempore Cannons Convenor arose.  There was much naval gazing, ‘I’m going to be away’, ‘I’m got to go to the bog’, shoe lace inspections and so on. And then Mike Hughes saved the day by saying he would be delighted and honoured to do it for a few weeks.  Thankyou Mike. So WOULD MIKE S. PLEASE UPDATE THE STATS FOR THE LAST COUPLE OF GAMES AND FORWARD TO MIKE H. ALSO GET THE JULY MONTHLY TROPHY TO HIM.  Thankyou.
Kind regards
Andrew Robinson

Results – Awana Genting Highlands Golf & Country Resort – 13th July 2010

It’s been a long time since Awana Genting featured on the Cannons schedule, and a very pleasant surprise it turned out to be. Perfect cool and bright weather, great scenery and the course in very good order, albeit the fairways and fringes rather wet. The greens were very fast and tricky. It was a serious challenge, but one that all enjoyed. Although a tad more expensive than most courses the Cannons play, it was a worthwhile exercise.

The winner on the day with 102 for 35 points was Tom Holmes – his maiden Cannons win! In second place OCB was Reinli Tan with 88 and 33 points. Tom is cut 4 and Reinli is cut 1. Lowest gross was Reinli’s impressive 88 and Mike Hughes played the most golf with his 116. Mike Hughes tally was boosted by a stunning birdie on the last for 5 points! Full details as follows:

Tom Holmes – 102/35
Reinli Tan – 88/33
Thong Chee Who – 95/33
Raymond Keys – 105/31
Tony Morris – 99/30
Klaus Kretschmar – 100/28
Andrew Robinson – 96/27
Bernhard Romahn – 114/22
Mike Hughes – 116/22
Vincent Vijayan – 110/13

Luncheon was taken at the RSC Kiara Sports Annex, it being deemed sensible to get off the hill before drinking commenced. A variety of makanan and minuman was enjoyed by all. And it was revealed during discourse that Tom’s nickname in certain circles is ‘Mr Bean’ – and we witnessed the extraordinary spectacle of him neatly cutting off and discarding the crusts from all around his pizza….. And having pocketed his RM50 winnings he then had the gaul to think that he would also get a free lunch!
News of next weeks game will follow in a day or so.

Note from Editor : Great to see Kevin Wiggins back out ….. and played to his handicap!!

A few photos from Assistant Editor & Pro Tem Photographer!

Bernhard takes it steady!

In case you are wondering:-  Does It Look Like I Give A F*ck?

Only one ball on the green on the Par-3 17th, and yes I did par it!

How does my ball end up like this two weeks running?

Yes indeed – my ball, clearly marked!

Is Bernhard dejected & will Tony’s belt stand the strain?

Winner Boy & Proud Son (no not me, the young lad Zac on the right)!

Looks like Mike is still hungry!!
