    Golf Outing

    29 Apr 2021

    After a night of solid rain, everyone was praying there would be no more rain during the round. Golf has become a very precious sport during the Covid time in Hong Kong, and lots of members are waiting in line to get their opportunity to play. We had 80 members who registered for the 24 available slots for this event so apologies to those who were not selected.

    We were very fortunate that despite the wet night and some light rain in the early morning, there was pleasant sunshine during the day! The first to tee off were Chris Burley, Stephen Knight, Eric Desgouttes and David Cross. They told me they would not participate in the competition as they are going head to head with scramble format! Eric paired with David versus Stephen and Chris. Eric led the way with excellent iron play which carried his team through the front 9.  He also won the nearest to the pin on hole 3. Eric’s team won by 3 holes against Chris’s team.

    In my group, I played with David Lindsay, Lam Wai Ming and Rich Maton. Rich was very stable for the whole round with absolute discipline and an accurate short game. When the fairway is narrow like on holes 6 and 16, he used his 3 wood to keep the ball in play and then try to get up and down to secure a par. This turned out to be a cunning plan as he shot his lowest round of 90 on KSC East Course and won first place with 34 stableford points! Congratulations to Rich! Meanwhile Lam Wai Ming surprised me by demonstrating that despite his “seniority” (77), he can still hit a very solid drive and long irons! He even won the nearest to the pin on hole 13!  I am reliably informed he is also still a demon on the squash courts!
