23 LC’s teed off on time at a brutally hot & humid Bukit Jalil that played very long after torrential overnight rain. The weather conditions were as bad as I have ever experienced so far as the humidity was concerned and for both Alan Holgate and Richard Moss it was too much and they wisely retired after 14 holes. Happily they appeared none the worse for wear after a couple of cold Tigers.
This was Cannons first visit to Bukit Jalil recently and will probably be our last as they made us start all 6 flights from TB1 as the back 9 is reserved for early morning member walkers. This is very disruptive to lunch. The course was in good condition but very soggy after the heavy overnight rain and resultantly very difficult with many high scores.
The winner was Iain Wise with 93 for 39 points. Iain is cut 4. The joint runners up were Peter Kenyon and Tom Holmes who both had 36 points. Lowest gross was 83 by Geoff McLaws.
Full results are attached below.
Lunch was at East of Highway where Indarjit Singh was introduced to the group. The food was excellent and was washed down with 28 large bottles of Tiger which were subsidised by generous contributions from Andrew Robinson, Jeff Pierce & Hans Berger who were all celebrating recent birthdays. A small group remained as they were still thirsty and polished off another 4 large ones before leaving just before 4pm.
