Pacific Game - 13 June 2010

Lord of the Pings

The Return of the King

The Dark Lord (George) is still atop his tower (the league table) coveting the crown he one day hopes will be his, however the return of last years champion Owen Wright (the King) and the ever reliable ever annoyingly good, Ian Smith, have cut into his lead.

It is now shaping up at this the halfway stage of the year as though we could be in a battle more ferocious than that at Helms Deep.

On a chill morning the Pacific course played as we expected it would (like crossing Mordor in the dark). It was very difficult and quite brutal (also dangerous for the poor group in front of us, sorry group 2 from group 3).

The cards indicated none of us had a really decent round, we will all have to re-group for Redcliffe to repair those dented prides.

The results were as follows:

NTP 13th – Rodney Topor

Mens long drive 18th – Rodney Topor (NB this may never happen again - ed)

Ladies long drive 18th – Karen Greedy

1st place on 31pts – Owen Wright

2nd place on 28pts – Ian Smith

3rd place on 26pts (on count back) – Paul Lockwood-Lee

Also on 26pts Mark Coster, who missed out on count back (strangely the count back was calculated by myself).

Many thanks to all who turned up to be thoroughly demoralised, hope to see you at Redcliffe on the 18th July.

Captain Paul.


  1. Paul - thanks for the commentary. Always entertaining. Can i be legolas? If i keep having all these 2nd placings I can compare myself to Phil Mickelson at the US Open. Ian

  2. Legolas may be taken, alright if we call you legolamb instead?
    Keep an eye on the Brits for this year at the US open.

  3. Hey! You were right, Paul. A Brit (from NI) did win the US Open. Well done!
