Pattana Wed 1 Feb

A surprisingly big field supported by a slightly later tee time today enforced my hunch that we should play a little later on some days and that Pattana is turning into one of the best golf courses out there. It certainly has turned into my favorite despite the sometimes quirky operations in how they do things over there. A downside with Pattana is that the course is extremely busy this high season, with tons of young aspiring Asian golf pro's turning up. This caused us to start half an hour later than our scheduled time, and another 40 minute delay on the turn for the back nine. By the time the last groups made it back to the bar, it was already dark! So with 8 groups and two divisions today, it certainly was a slow day and I will discuss with the management there on how we can avoid this happening in our future visits.

Playing the A&B courses today, some of my golfers were concerned that the course would be too long from the white tee's measuring slightly over 6,800yrds. However, with a par 6 on the course and a par 73, with a reasonably forgiving layout, the results did not indicate a problem with distance at all, and a B division player scored the highest points of the day enforcing that fact. In Division B today, Shay Mitchell scored a good 35 points to come in 3rd place, Stephen Watkins playing of 31 hcp on the white tee's scored 37 points, and the winner in the B division today was Roy Johan Steinbach, who scored a great 38 points to be the overall winner. 

In the A division, three players was equal on 37 points, and with Peter Nixon scoring a worse last six holes than his opponent, he came in 3rd place. In 2nd place, beating Peter on countback, was Raivo Velsberg also on 37 points. Fred Birch, with the best back nine on the difficult B course with 20 points, was declared the overall winner.

There were only two 2's today by Peter Thomas and Jeff Noeske, a young visiting pro that lives in China.
