October 2015 PAGS Tournament from Phoenix


October 2015 PAGS Tournament from Phoenix

October 2015 PAGS Tournament from Phoenix Family Affair This Month.

119 players, including 9 ladies, made the short journey this month to the Phoenix course, where we played the Mountain & Ocean combination. Although the weather was hot & humid, there was a light breeze to keep it from being too oppressive, with the groups progressing at a steady pace. We played from the white tee markers today, with some being back, while others were a little forward, but still the course provided a solid challenge for all. Tee markers were adjusted, as Phoenix is hosting the Thailand Ladies Amateur Championships next week from the 28th, and they were keping the ladies teeing areas pristine for their tournament.

Most months there is 1, or sometimes several outstanding performances for the tournament. This month that mention should probably go to the Suominens, Olli Pekka (9) in the A flight Mens & Anne Maija (32) in the Ladies. Both figured in the placings in their relevant flights with Olle getting the maximum 2 technicals & Ann also getting a NTP. Jormi Heinjoki (28) was the only male golfer to break 40 points on the day, leading the C grade, home by a clear 6 points to Roman Lastamet (22) with Willem Lasonder (20) getting 3rd spot a further point behind on 37 points. The B flight, for handicaps 13 – 18, was tightly contested, with all placegetters separated by only 1 point. After countback, the placings were as follows, Bjorn Olaf Noren (15) in 1st spot after edging Brian Green (16) into 2nd, after both shot 38 points. Bjorn recording 22 points on the back 9, to Brian’s 17, while in 3rd spot was Staffan Lyrestram (15) with 37 points. The A flight (0 – 12) was another tightly contested division, with Jonny Lindberg (11) the clear winner with 38 points, while the 2nd & 3rd spots had to be whittled down form 4 players, all on 37 points. Gerd Riedler (8) got the silver after his 20 points on the back 9, with Olli Pekka Suominen (9) getting the bronze after his 19 on the back 9. Unlucky players were low gross winner & runner up, Jack Grinvold & Mike Allidi.
The Low Gross also required a countback, to separate Jack Grinvold & Mike Allidi, after both shot a commendable 74 off the stick. Jack getting the chocolates, with his back 9 of 37 to Mike’s 38. With a field of 9 Ladies this month, it was Choojai Sawasdee (28) leading the way with a day’s best of 46 points, to go with her long drive prize, ahead of the afore mentioned Anne Maija Suominen (32) with a more than creditible 41 points.

Special mentions goes out to multiple winners in the technical prizes, getting their maximum 2 prizes, among others, were Mika Vilkainen & Montri.

BBQ King Dave was at it again, who with his capable staff kept all attendees well satisfied with their tasty offerings for the night. We will all look forward to another successful tournament with next month’s event at Pattavia on 25 November.
