It was a beautiful morning today as 6 full flights tee’d off on the Putera and Tasik nines at Tasik Puteri. The Putera nine was probably in the worst shape we have seen it for a long time … the greens were bad and very slow. The Tasik nine however was good although again some of the greens were suffering a bit. The weather was great and we had no hold ups round the course so we were all finished and then took lunch at the usual Chin Heong Restaurant close to the highway exit ….. well apart from Roger McGowan who had some navigational issues …. thank God he is still not flying!
Lunch was good washed down by quite a few cold beers kindly sponsored by Kevin Wiggins with RM200 who was celebrating a recent birthday and Mike Smith topped up the pot to the sum of RM600 who was also celebrating a birthday with a number larger than most of our birthdays! Cheers boys.
Worth of mention today:
- Peter Kenyon managed to hit the ball from the tee and land it behind him by hitting the bridge in front of the tee box
- Stuart Taylor pulled of an excellent recovery shot where his ball was right next to the lake on the 18th Par 5 hole by getting in the lake and playing his 2nd shot …. managed to recover with a bogey ….. and a very wet pair of golf shoes … video below:
Scores were not as good as usual at this course qualifying the earlier comment on the course condition, but our clear winner today, Kevin Wiggins, did well with an excellent 90 for 40 points (cut 4). It was so good to see Kevin win having made a come back from a long bout of illness and eventually made it to the winner’s podium again. Runner up was Peter Kenyon with 98 for 36 on count back from Mahmud Mohamed and Mike Williams. Best gross today was Geoff McLaws with an 80. Full results below:
