With yours truly (Mike Smith) getting out of the wrong side of the bed; taking a phone call while driving, missing the turn and getting lost and arriving late, registration of 19 starters went smoothly enough and we eventually got started off 2 tee boxes only 5 mins late.
The recent dry weather was showing at Bukit Kemuning Golf Resort with yellow, rock hard fairways, some near bare tee boxes and firm, bumpy greens but with buggy on course and their very cheap “Early Bird” promotion this is still a decent venue. Oh and BTW the pin position on the 6th was ridiculous and the talking point at lunch. I wonder how many of us 4 putted this one? The weather was dry and breezy and not unpleasant and we were round in 4 hours.
The winner continuing his recent good form was Geoff McLaws with 76 for 43 points, cut 7 strokes. The runner-up was Hans Berger with 91 for 38 points with Glen Wombwell 3rd with 101 for 37 points. The lowest gross was of course Geoff with his superb 76. The full result is attached.
Lunch was taken at the nearby Mayflower Restaurant where 13 golfers enjoyed an excellent meal washed down with copious quantities of cold Tiger…..and water for Barry who is on a strict diet. Get well soon Barry. Hans Berger celebrated becoming a great granddad by chucking 250 into the lunch kitty. Congratulations Hans.
