Burapha Mon 25 Apr

Dave Atkinson, aka Acco, became the fourth Hole in One acheiver at the Outback in the last 4 months, by scoring a perfect Ace on C5 measuring 129yrds. In Acco's words, "it was a proper shot, not some thinned bullet that got lucky", referring perhaps to some of the other hole-in-one's in recent weeks? The days of 10,000 baht medical checkups for Hole in Ones are over, but still a nice gesture of Burapha to give Acco a free golf voucher for his achievement. Well done Acco!

With A&B courses closed and our numbers still good but less than the pre-Songkhran months, C&D posed somewhat of a challenge with the thick rough in places. Greens not as fast as always made things a little easier, and in 4th place was John Cunningham with another consistant performance of 35 points, winning that position on countback. In 3rd place and also playing from a 8 handicap, Jimmy Bracket scored a great 37 pts. Maurice Copan had 38 points, and Peter Stonebridge was the man of the day 39pts.

Burapha Mon 7 Mar

A Sweet day for Sugar!

For the second time in as many months, we had a hole in one at the Outback! This time it was from Sugar Ray Handford, who not only scored a hole in one, but also a magnificent 49 points on his playing handicap (47 points on his PSC Handicap Index). Sugar clearly had a round of a lifetime, and that is a scorecard that he will frame, no doubt. Sugar scored his hole in 1 on the not so easy 12th hole, playing around 140 yards. Sugar celebrated with the customary bell ring, and he also received a nice Outback shirt with compliments from us.

On a sidenote, and for those interested in statistics and handicaps, the chances of a hole in one for a high handicapper is 12,500 to 1, and according to the "USGA Exceptional Tournament Score Probability Table" (You can Google it), the chances of someone with Sugar's handicap of 21 getting more than 10 shots under handicap is 37,000 to 1. If Sugar wasn't a regular where all his scorecards over many years was religiously submitted by a society and not Sugar himself, you could think he was a sandbagger, but I can certainly vouch for the authenticity of Sugar's handicap. Nonetheless, and rightly so, the USGA Handicap system used by the PSC is nabbing Sugar and his new handicap has been slashed to 17.4. Even with a 17 handicap, Sugar would have had 43 points on the day, which just proves what a great round he had.

Not taking away any credit to Sugar, there were also numerous other great rounds today at Burapha, which does indicate that we should maybe move the play back to the Blue tee's as we did a few months ago. Clearly Burapha is tame against the onslaught of Outbacker's ability and we should give the course a bit of help in defending itself, don't you think?

With Sugar being the clear winner for Div. B, Rona Carungay with a 43 points came in 2nd place,  Peter Stonebridge 3rd with 42 points and Ivan plunkett 4th with 40 points. In the A division, Maurice Copan narrowly beat Vince Butler to be 4th with 39 points, Geoff Stimpson came 3rd with a fantastic 75 gross (39 points as well), Peter Nixon 2nd with 40 points, and John Fitzgerald 1st with 42 points.

Congratulations to some good scores and especially to the Sugarman!

Green Valley Fri 5 Feb: Hole in One!

With one of the biggest regular competition fields in recent months, it's good to see that the high season is finally in full swing, and what a day it was for one of our frequent players, Yasu Arakawa from Japan, who scored his first ever hole in One on the 16th hole. Yasu, hitting a 9 iron on the 145yrd pin location, landed on the green and on the second bounce, went straight into the hole. According to Yasu, it wasn't his best shot and it was thinned a bit, but as they say, the scorecard doesn't tell pictures and Yasu's name will be added on the board at Green Valley for his special achievement. We just had to give Yasu a special gift from the Outback in addition to his prize money as can be seen in the picture on this very memorable day for him as he was congratulated by everyone on this busy friday afternoon at the Outback.

With the large field we had, paying out 5 places in two divisions, Division B being 18 handicap and up, saw Bryan James with 31 points in 5th place, Keith Allen 4th with 32 points, Satu Lehtonen from Estonia 3rd with 34 points. Brendan Cope scored well again with 37 points to finish 2nd, and Reijo Heiskanen from Finland 1st with 38 points. In the A division, Yasu scored 35 points in addition to his hole in one to finish 5th, Mike Missler 36 points in 4th place, Yurie Murakami from Japan with 37 points, playing partner Sunanta Cotterell from Thailand in 2nd with 37 pts as well, and Maurice Copan from Canada finishing 1st with 41 points.

It is really great seeing such a wonderful international field playing at the Outback with 7 Nationalities making up our podium winners.
