A Stormy Green Valley


Miss Nu, Miss Lynn and Miss Porn

STABLEFORD

The first 9 holes were sunny and hot but we could see a storm developing in the distance which, unfortunately, was moving towards Green Valley. We were, seemingly, surrounded by continuous thunder and the darkest clouds you can imagine which only served as a backdrop for the lightening to shine brighter. The storm just slipped past us on its way to Laem Chabang, where some Billabong members were playing, and the cancellation of play after 9 holes. Thankfully, the rain decided to stay away until our last group played the 18th hole. Despite this, the scoring was very good with Miss Nu (15), continuing her brilliant form, came out on top of the ladies’ competition with 40 points having 8 pars and only one double bogey. Miss Lynn (10) also had a good day with 7 pars and 2 birdies for her 37 points and 2nd place closely followed by Miss Porn (22) who would have had a better score but for four 1 pointers in her round for her 3rd place. Tony Oakes (13) and his partner, Jeff North (10) accepted a challenge from Selwyn Wegner and William Macey on the 1st tee bemoaning his recent form but despite his 39 points, which included 1 blob and only 3 pars on the back nine, earned him 1st place but could not establish, for him, a win over Selwyn and William. Keith Allen (13) lost his partners by the 18th due to the possibility of bad weather, but his 2nd place finish was down to 21 points on the way out with at least 2 points on every hole but 5 holes with only 1 point on the back nine was the reason for his 2nd place and 38 points. Selwyn Wegner (16) came 3rd with 37 points but a blob on the par three 16th put paid to higher ambitions. Lloyd Shuttleworth (5) had a game of two halves, 14 on the front but 21 on the back which included 6 pars and 2 birdies, mainly on the back nine, which did not include a birdie on a par three but, there again, nor did anyone else that played today.
