Loose Cannons and LEGS have been challenging each other since April 2013 and this was the 7th game in the series held at Staffield Country Resort. We had 12 flights with 24 players from each side competing in a best ball Stableford competition.
After a slight delay due to quite a few ladies arriving late (some miscommunication on the tee-off time apparently) we all got off on the West Course at around 8:30am. The weather was wonderful and the course was in great shape making it a very good morning’s golf.
Most players completed the round by 1pm and we had a lunch set up in the clubhouse restaurant where the prize giving was done.
In preparing the flights for today’s match we took all the players’ USGA handicaps, adjusted them all for the slope of the course with men 18 and below playing off the blue tees and those above 18 playing the white tees, and then adjusting the teams to try and match the combined handicaps which we did within one shot. These matched pairs worked very well resulting in some very close games and overall an extremely tight match.
The overall match was a draw with Loose Cannons winning 5 of the matches, LEGS winning 5 matches and two matches were drawn. So 6 points to each side for match No 7.
So after 7 matches there is still only 1 point separating the two teams with Loose Cannons with a total of 35 match points and LEGS having a total of 34 match points. We look forward to the next match in the series.
Full results and overall scores detailed below.
The best men’s pair score was Mike Smith and Iain Wise with 49 points (RM300) and the second best Men’s pair score was Martin Walsh and Graham Cadman with 37 points.(RM150).
For the ladies the best pair score was also 49 points from Gina Blackwell and Yuni Rhoden (RM300). Second best ladies pair score was 47 points from Yani Soermurni and Anita Hourigan (RM150).
NTP for Hole No 8 on the West Course was Mike Smith (RM100) and NTP for Hole No 8 on the South Course Peter Kenyon (RM100).
Well done to all our winners and thanks to all participants who made the day a great success.
With an original 21 booked to play we had one last minute drop out resulting in 5 full flights and 20 players today at Impian Golf & Country Club. So with revised flights we got off from two tee boxes on a beautiful morning, although it did become a little steamy and humid later on. The course was in very good condition although the greens had just been sanded and were a little variable in their speed. Rate of play was good and we all finished by 12:30 and then we headed off to Fei Wai restaurant for lunch ….. well at least 11 of us did!
Our winner this week was Allan Wright with 89 for 42 points (cut 6) and the runner up was Andrew Robinson with 97 for 40 points. Best gross was shared between Allan Wright and Stuart Taylor, both with 89. Full results below:
It was a beautiful clear morning with 26 Loose Cannons players teeing off on the Mango & Pines 9’s of Nilai Springs Golf & Country Club. It is usually a challenge getting started at this club but luckily there were very few other players so we all got off on two boxes relatively efficiently.
Weather was wonderful and the course was in very good shape although some greens were a little on the bumpy side.
We finished by around 12:30pm and although we had planned to stay at the club for lunch and drinks they informed us they were “out of beer” so we quickly changed plans and headed to our reliable Restoran East of Highway for lunch and some much needed cold beers. Paul Geddes and Iain Wise were celebrating very recent birthdays so they kindly handles the refreshment bill making it an even more enjoyable lunch. Thank You to Paul and Iain.
Some good scores today at Nilai Springs as is usually expected at this course. The winner was Stuart Taylor with 83 for 42 points on count back from Paul Geddes with 81 for 42 points (24 points on back 9 vs 20 points). 3rd place was shared between Glen Wombwell (96 for 41) and Allan Wright (91 for 41). Best gross of the day was Geoff McLaws with 78.
