The course was in a good condition, certainly when taking into account the rain of the previous day. The greens a bit changing, form fast to less fast to slow, some damage in the fairways, but on the whole, a good course to play. The weather started nice, but you could feel the heat approaching. The last holes were therefore for some of us a struggle to get through.
Lunch was in a new restaurant, and, combined with three of us ordering, it gave us a new variety of food! In the right combination with some beers, it was a good experience.
And then the scores…….. We know that you have to score well to have a chance to win here, but today you needed a real monster score. Ricardo had the lowest gross score of 83. Six players played their handicap or better. The fourth-place of Iain with 39, two-second places of Jan and Robert with 40 points, and the winner was Andrew Morrow with 48 (!!!) points, Well, his lower handicap will reflect this next time. His handicap was based on games last year with the last game played in July. We welcomed a new player, Bipan Kapur, who joined us for his first game in the Loose Cannons. Welcome Bipan, the mystery prize was for you.
Most of the attention went of course to the real golf player in our midst. Tony Morris with 500 games, the fastest player in Malaysia, was honored with a special LC shirt. Tony, congratulations on this real milestone. A very faithful and consistent player, who keeps the speed in the game. Up for the next jubilee! Thanks to his very generous gift, the costs for this copious lunch were kept within nice limits. Many thanks, Tony!
