It’s not often you get a golf course to yourselves … but today we did. There were no other players at all so our small group of 19 Loose Cannons players had an unimpeded round at KGSAAS today. The weather was great, albeit very humid at the start, and the course was in wonderful shape making it am almost perfect morning’s golf.
We had 19 players for today’s game and 18 of us started on two tee boxes on the Sultan and the Alam Shah 9’s ….. our 19th player, Greg Sturgess, eventually making it to join us at mid way through our 2nd hole.
Sigi Maierbrugger kindly sponsored the cost for his flight so giving us some extra money to go towards the lunch today … thanks Sigi.
It was good to have a good caddy today … his advice was excellent and eventually found out that he played to a handicap of 2!
We had lunch at Pantai Seafood today and again, other than the beer, it offers really great value and wonderful food.
As usual this course can produce some good scores and we had a number of players with more than 36 points. Dave Evans played his best ever round with two birdies and was sitting at lunch after the game thinking he may be in with a good chance to win. However the last group came in with some very good scores ruining Dave’s chance of victory. The winner today was Roger Surieux with a very good 42 points (gross of 95) …. cut 4 …. and runner up on count back was Sigi Maierbrugger with 40 points (gross 87) and an amazing 25 points on his first 9 from Dave Evans and Brian Stubbs both also with 40 points. Best gross if the day was Paul Geddes with an 85. Full results below :
Playing with Greg Sturgess today we were amazed at the loud sound his driver made at impact so it was an opportunity to record this as shared below :
