7 golfers assembled at Tasik Puteri for the August Medal. Erol dropping out at the last minute due to illness. We played the Tasik nine first followed by Putera. The greens were very poor, in particular on the Putera nine. Cannons should seriously consider not playing here again until the greens have been fixed.
Barry Cousins won the trophy with a gross of 97 and 43 points (after bonus point adjustment) Hans Berger was runner up with 92 for 40 points. After deducting bonus points Barry will be cut 4 and Hans 1. Best gross was Hans (92) and most golf was me with 112. (A fitting end to my Cannons career!!)
1. Barry Cousins 97 gross 43 points
2. Hans Berger 92 40
3. Ray Funnell 98 35
4. Vincent Vijayan 104 33
5. Ian Geekie 102 31
6. Mike Hughes 112 30
7. Glen Wombwell 103 28
Four of us proceeded to Equatorial for M&M but were joined by Andrew, Dick and Mike Smith where we enjoyed a good lunch and liquid refreshments. The highlight (for me) was Barry Cousins awarding me his trophy – for not receiving a prize at Bukit Utama on my only win in over 60 appearances. Whatever the reason the gesture was very much appreciated and will leave me with a good memento of Loose Cannons.
Finally, I would like to say how much I have enjoyed playing with the group over the last two years and will try to get out again when I return to KL on holiday.
Mike will be appointing another temp convenor and, hopefully, will soon be out and about on the course with you.
