We had 16 Cannons for today’s game at Bangi and today we had everyone at the club by 7:30, we were registered and paid by 7:35 and in the buggies and off to the tee box by 7:45 …. an all time record.
Weather was hazy and rather humid making it very sticky. Course was in good shape and the greens were very quick and rather unpredictable making for many of us taking far too many putts. The course was quiet and we got round by 12:15pm.
Barry Cousins won the most inventive attire award of the day …. managing to tailor his golf shorts apparently from the canvas of an old deck chair!
Stuart Taylor won the most bizarre shot of the day award with a tee shot off the 3rd hole (Par 5) on the Kajang Course which headed straight for a large tree on the left (Stuart’s attempt to cut the corner) …. with a large thud all of us assumed it was lost in the jungle …. but a good 4-5 seconds later as the next person was moving to the tee box the ball landed about 6 feet behind us …. having rebounded from the tree some 100m away. Stuart then proceeded to take a 3-wood to the lucky ball, hit his second over the trees onto the fairway round the corner and eventually bogeyed the hole!!
There were some good scores today on this rather short course with a few players in the 40’s. The winner however with a magnificent round of 99 and 45 Stableford points was Richard Moss once again showing that our highest handicap golfer in the group can win! Well done Richard. Runner up was Andrew Robinson with a mere 44 points. Best gross of the day was Andrew Chez with a round of 80, including one eagle and a couple of birdies. He did however completely #%$#@ up his Stableford score …. declaring 40 points …. reduced to the correct figure of 36 points by the Convenor.
