WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 30TH
HAVEN CONSULTANTS MONTHLY MEDAL
Before the presentation at the Billabong, Capt. Bob thanked Brian Chapman, the CEO of Haven Consultants for his long term sponsorship of this monthly competition. A medal competition is not everybody’s favourite for one bad hole can put an end to your ambitions which is one reason that a certain Dr. Stableford devised a new game in 1898 called, would you believe Stableford, to make life somewhat more tolerable for mere mortals. Our high spirits were dented a little today for whilst standing on the 1st tee we noticed all the greens were being sanded at that very moment. Not to be down hearted we ignored these problems, well four players did at least, three of these were ladies and Miss Sasicha (19) being the outstanding player of the day. She had pars on the first four holes and not a six dropping only 4 shots on the front nine and a 65 net to win the day. Miss Thip (18) enjoyed her day with no double bogeys on her card for a 69 net closely followed by Miss Prae (35) with a net 70 which included a nine on a par three but a birdie on 16th did a little bit to nullify this. Tony Oakes (13) only dropped 4 shots on the way home which included 5 pars for his 68 net and 1st place. Barry Copeskate (15) can thank his front nine for his impressive 70 net which included 5 pars and 1 birdie well in front of four others with net 73. Wayne Cotterell (13) who birdied 2 of the first 4 holes and no double bogeys after the turn claimed 3rd place and Thiery Petrement (11) dropping to 4th place with seven 5s and only three dropped shots on the front nine, the back nine was not quite so good. Three 2s today going to Peter Le Noury, Miss Prae and Miss Nu.
