A rainy day in paradise !
With Stuart Taylor having to drop out at the last minute due to illness, 19 LC’s (including the returning of our beloved resident convener, Hans Berger from the frozen North with a few more kilos and looking forward to be at the hot seat again) braved torrential rain & dark, treacherous roads to play at the Impian Golf & Country Club earlier today. The heavy rain continued unabated until ~ 7.45am resulting in some delay in teeing off, but eventually 4 flights teed-off on #1 with 1 flight joining a queue on #10. Rain continued sporadically throughout the morning, with thunder audible and very dark skies overhead; however there was no further interruption due to rain so, despite these issues, play was generally reasonably quick with all players finishing by ~ 1.45pm
The course was, as usual, in beautiful condition, if a bit soggy and challenging for some (including your stand-in temporary scribe).
The winner was Stan (finally) with 92 for 36 points. Runner-up was Iain Wise with 95 for 35 (even with 6 blobs ) ahead of Ricardo with 88 for 34. Lowest gross was Ricardo with 88 and the most gross was Ray Funnell with 114. Full results listed below:
The winner of the Mini Competition was Bernhard Romahn with 217 points, runner-up was Ricardo Castro with 194, following in third place Martin Belderink with 192. Full results listed below:
Lunch should be at Fei Wai Seafood, but was closed with different name, so we switch to Ken Well seafood restaurant just opposite side attended by only 10 of us. Good food, good company, plenty of good humored banter and 10 nice cold Tiger to help it along. 200 Rm donated by Iain Wise to commemorate his first EAGLE ever, and 50.00 Rm from Roger as a fine to celebrate his fantastic tee shot who ended up before lady’s tee.
Thank you Tony Morris, Stan Constantinides, Hans Berger, Brian Buckley, Roger McGowan, Reinli Tan, Kevin Wiggins, Iain Wise and Martin Belderink to your kind donation to the SILOAM HOUSE.
