KSC North Golf Outing
KSC North Golf Outing24 Nov 2020
Wednesday, 11th November
I am happy to report that for this outing, we had perfect weather to start the round; 25 degrees with a gentle breeze and blue skies. As KSC North course is a walking course only, it typically does not attract many members to participate. However with the pandemic situation making access to golf in Hong Kong very difficult, there was a huge level of interest with 50 members signing up for the event. This time we gave priority to those who had put down their name for the last two events but could not join. The level of interest inevitably meant that we saw some new faces at the events, which hopefully will continue.
The first to tee off were William Bill King, Alastair Murray, David Chiu and Michael Button. Alastair and Bill had rounds of 89 and 90 which was quite tidy on this tournament course. Their rounds were somewhat blemished on hole 14 where both of them scored a double bogey. Alastair made the green in regulation but 4 putted it! Meanwhile Bill butchered his way to the edge of the green in 5 shots, and then chipped in for zero putts! It looked like the chip from the 2005 Master Championship where Tiger Woods chipped in at hole 16! And that’s golf is all about, remembering the good shots but forgetting the bad ones!
Here’s the breakdown of the event.
