Kota Permai was in excellent condition as 23 Loose Cannons players descended on the lush, green fairways. We had 6 flights and we managed to tee off at around or shortly after 7:30 from 2 tee boxes as planned.
The fairways were in excellent shape as were all the bunkers and the greens ran true and fast as they normally do at this wonderful course.
The winner today was Kevin Wiggins with a great score of 83 for 40 points – well done Kevin. Joint runners up were Geoff McClaws (78 for 38 points) and Robert Mulliss with 100 for 38 points. Geoff McClaws also had the best gross of the day.
Lunch was held at the New Fu Yen Restaurant which was very good and aided by kind donations from Ray Funnell and Kevin Wiggins who celebrated their recent 300th and 200th games respectively. Thank you both for the kind donations. Tony Morris was presented at lunch with the January Trophy which was not available at the time he won it – please see photo of Tony and the January Trophy below in the Photo section.
Thanks also to Barry Cousins who made the booking at Kota Permai.
One amusing incident of the day transpired with an apparent “golf buggy accident” with our 4-ball group including Bernhard Romahn, Bernie Schobert, Vincent Vijayan and Iain Wise. The buggy in question, which sustained some damage, was of course commandered by our very own “Desert Fox” Bernhard Romahn, known well for his previous exploits of buggy driving skills and through-bunker-navigation. This has inspired an immediate release of a new movie to follow up from the previous Desert Fox poster which was popularly received by Herr Romahn as detailed below for your viewing pleasure.
