Annual TQ Masters



It's only rock and roll

The change of venue for this year’s event from Emerald Golf Club meant a much shorter ride out (and back) for the 68 players who took part and was appreciated by all. There was a wee bit of rain earlier in the day but it stayed mostly dry until the end - even though it certainly looked threatening. Relief from the humidity was fortunately at hand in the form of Bernie Tuppin, ‘Wild’ Bill Freeman and the TQ lovelies who rode around the course in the refreshment carts, handing out beer and water to packs of thirsty golfers.
After the golf, the players returned to the T.Q. bar on Beach Road for the traditional ox leg dinner provided by Bjarne of The Café Kronberg.  With dinner out of the way, John Emerson produced his tallied list of the day’s scores and announced the winners as T.Q. ‘mine host’, Woody, handed out the prizes.

The winner of Division 1 with a superb score of 40 points was Gene Connor, who finished two ahead of flight runner-up Brad Sproxton while two points further back in third place was Phil Smedley with an even par 36.

Paul Ovens scored 39 points to take the Division 2 honours but only after edging a count back on the last six holes over Ian Pickles who returned a similar total overall.  Third place in the flight went to Didier Chaumet just one point back on 38.

Top spot in Division 3 went to Nev Nicholson with a well constructed 38 points and he was followed up the podium steps by Alan Raulton (37) and Matt Millar (36) respectively.

In the technical prizes, long drive awards went to Kurt Kantor, Scott Cosban and Chris Oxley while the near pins were claimed by Gene Connor, Brad Sproxton, Paul Ovens, Darren Stanton, Paul Walph and Larry Deverdenne.

A notable achievement on the day that received no prize was an albatross ‘2’ scored by Jose Garcia on the 493-yard par 5 Ocean #9 hole.  Jose has had 2 hole-in-ones before but this was his first ever ‘big bird’.  Congratulations to him.

The final announcement was for the longest putt award, sponsored by Jack Levy from Macallen Insurance Brokers to the tune of 20,000 baht, with 10,000 baht going to the winner and the remainder to the Jesters Care for Kids.  Larry Ball won and immediately and very generously donated his half back to the Jesters charity.
