Results — Thurs Apr 13th — Singha Amateur update

The weather report was ominous, and things looked rather iffy as we wended our way around the course, but the rain held off until we finished and we got our round in.  Today we had five members:  5Points, Graham, Bruce G, Brian, and Jockey John.  We played our normal skins game.  Afterwards, Graham announced it was his 60th birthday, and bought us all lunch.  Happy Birthday, Graham!  Graham was also the winner of the Stableford and the winner of the most skins.  Way to go, Birthday, Boy!  See the scores, attached.  Here is the results summary:

Skins won:  23 (No one won the last two holes, and since we were a five-ball, those skins are not awarded)

Closest to the pins:  Graham won hole #3.  Bruce G won holes #7, #12, and #17.  Those were the only skins he won all day!  You gotta pity those poor low handicappers.

Stableford scores:

                — Graham (1st  Place):  37 points

                — 5Points (2nd Place):  34 points

                — Jockey John:  30 points

                — Bruce G:  30 points

                — Brian:  27 points

 In other news today — There were rumours that the Dutch Consulate in Australia was going to prevent Leo’s arrival.  However, the head of Australian Immigration Mr. Tiny Woody wasn’t there to tell him that “he couldn’t enter.”  Leo successfully made it to his destination.  That evening Andrew forced a jet-lagged Leo to drink 3 bottles of wine with him.  This afternoon on a beautiful day on a  beautiful course complete with kangaroos it was decided not to play for money.   It could be noted that this was a fair result as neither played very well.
