April 2017 PAGS Tournament from Phoenix Gold

Hot Day , Hot Rounds

88 players, including a good field of 14 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, while still ensuring the integrity of the daily handicap adjustments. 

Most months there is 1, or sometimes several outstanding performances for the tournament.  This month that mention should probably go to Fynn Csizmadia (10) in the A flight Mens & May Suiye (17) in the Ladies.   Fynn winning the Low Gross with 78, 2nd in the A Flight & a technical prize, while May shot the day’s best score to win the Ladies & got the Long Drive. 

Regular player Heikki Viljakainen (21) was the highest scoring male golfer with 43 points on the day, leading the C grade home by a clear 5 points from Kjell Franberg (22) with 38 points while another point back was Ronny Walfridsson (30) on 37 points. 

The B flight, for handicaps 15 - 19, was a little more tightly contested, with Philippe Pruvot (18) the clear winner on 41 points, while Martin Kempton (15) recorded 38 points to get 2nd spot, a point ahead of Alan Gallagher (18) on 37 points, to go with his Long Drive on 18. 

The A flight (0 – 14) was the tightest of the day, with Daniel Grob (13) the winner with 41 points, while the 2nd spot went to the afore mentioned Fynn Csizmadia with 40 points, 3rd spot on 39 points went to Johan Smedsjo (14). 

Special mentions go out to multiple winners in the technical prizes, getting their maximum 2 prizes, among others, were Jerry Langer & Pekka Saarenpaa.

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 Phoenix on 30 May.  Contact Shane on 0863 720 084 to ensure your preferred tee time.
