Today was the first day in probably two years or more that we were rained off the course mid-round. In fact, I’m not sure it has ever happened. Isn’t the rainy season over yet?
We started with four golfers (5Points, Graham, Egbert, and Bruce G), none of whom were expecting rain. As we teed off on the first hole the first indication that all was not well appeared, and by the time we reached the second fairway the heavens opened. After waiting around under the trees for about 15 minutes, it was clear the rain was settling in for a while. We called the clubhouse and they helpfully sent out two carts to retrieve us.
After watching the rain dismally from the restaurant for a while, Graham first departed, then Egbert. Of course, it finally stopped, and 5Points and Bruce G played their normal side bet game for 100 baht from the blue tees. Bruce shot 3 over 75 and hammered 5Points, who never really had a chance. But, he never has a chance, does he? Bruce G asks us not to tell him. Just let him toil away in perpetuity, like Sisyphus pushing the rock up the hill. At least he didn’t run away because of the rain!

- 5Points: 33 points ( 105)
