HAVEN MONTHLY MEDAL
As usual, the Haven Monthly Medal is well supported and today was no exception. 44 golfers turned up to support this event which has been sponsored by Brian Chapman, for many years now, and runs Haven Consultants (Financial Advisors) in Nern Plubwan. It is said that a medal round is a true measure of one’s ability and one bad hole can determine whether you stand on the podium or not and does not help when one person, who will remain nameless, had a 10 on the first hole and used a hand wedge to extricate himself from a bunker. In the ladies Miss Poopay, always competitive in a medal, had 8 pars and one birdie to lead the way with a net 71. Miss Eng would have challenged Miss Poopay but for 4 double bogies on the back nine just edging out Miss Sasicha on the same score relegating her to third place. In the men’s Micky Beresford, who shook off the cobwebs from a hard grind of 4 weeks offshore, to improve on his first nine holes of 47 by 7 shots which included 4 pars and 1 birdie for a net 74 and 4th place. Pete Thomas occupied 3rd place with a net 73 with four pars and 1 birdie on the way back to the clubhouse but 4 shots behind 2nd placed Brian Wilkinson who had a double bogey seven and an eight for a respectable net 69. But Sandy Chap, who is becoming a regular visitor to the podium recently, despite 2 sevens in his round took the plaudits with a net 68. The twos today went to Lloyd Shuttleworth, Miss Nu, Miss Eng and Miss Prae.
