    Petersen Texas Scramble

    20 Sep 2021

    The weather forecast for the whole week was for heavy rain and thunder storms, and  to make things more bleak, the red rain signal was hosted the night before the event. Despite the bad omens, we were very fortunate to find that there was literally no rain in the morning at 6a.m. and the golf course was open. Result!

    This prestigious event was again greatly assisted by its creator, Ian Petersen, who helped liaise with The Hong Kong Golf Club and enabled us to secure 8 flights on the New Course starting from10:03 till 11:00.   As we gathered at the HKFC around 7:30am in the morning I could feel everyone’s passion since most of us has not been able to play golf since the closure of the golf course.

    I was partnering Greg Medhurst, Mike Duggan and Gary Choy. Gary told me this is his first golf outing in 5 years and he was very nervous so we teed off first so he can ease his tension. Perhaps unsurprisingly Gary hit a dreadful drive on the first, topping it into  the side of the cart path which ejected it backwards onto the Championship tee behind us!  Luckily we were playing Texas scramble where you are allowed to pick the best shot from your team.  This allowed us to benefit from a perfect drive and approach shot to 15 feet, and a nice putt from Mike to record an opening birdie to start the round! I managed to hit some bombs today averaging 280-290 yards from the tee box which put us in good stead on the par 5s!  We had 3 long eagle putts (all missed), but still walked away with 3 two-putt birdies. Overall, we had 6 birdies, 10 pars and 2 bogeys to post a 4 under for the round. As we were benefiting from a 14 handicap, we shot 52 to claim the victory with 18 under par!

    In the fight for second place,  two groups came really close.  Brent York’s team and Mark Li’s team both shot 55 net but Mark’s team shot 32 on the back nine to snatch the runner up spot.

    There was some surprise that there was no nearest to the pin flags on the front nine.  It turned out that as Ian’s team failed to hit any of the greens, he forgot to put out the flags!  So he just put the flags out on hole 11, 14 ,16, with 18 as the longest drive!  Early onset Alzheimers?

    Happy Golfing
