Another beautiful day in paradise. Weather sunny and not too hot. Santiburi is in fine condition.
Today we had five participants – four members and one friend, Ralph. We played our normal skins game, with Ralph and Leo playing white tees, and the rest playing from the blue tees.
Ralph had a tough morning, but after the first nine he caught fire and tied for the best back nine score of 19 points. He also chipped in to a back pin from off the front of the green on hole 15 to save bogey and win the hole.
Bruce G must have caught a virus, or perhaps decided to “drop anchor” since 5Points declined to bet with him. Who knows, but shooting a gross score of 90 is a rarity. Maybe 5Points will be suckered back in next Thursday. Today might have been the best day for the bet, though. Also uncharacteristically, Bruce failed to capture a single closest to the pin prize, leaving all four for Leo. I guess playing from the white tees suits him!
Leo and Les tied for the best stableford score.
Here are the results:
- Winner(s): Leo and Les, 32Points each
Closest to the Pins:
- Hole 3: No one
- Hole 7: Leo (x2)
- Hole 12: Leo
- Hole 17: Leo
