A lovely warm sunny evening with the course in good condition provided an ideal evening for some good golf. Unfortunately, there was very little good golf being played by any of the Frogs! The winning score with what we believe to be the lowest ever winner’s score was 15 points [this year, Ed.]. It was said that with scores like this even people originating from NZ might have had a chance… Again we had a very good turn out of members with 26 members and 3 guest players. So a very enjoyable evening. Thanks to Ian Doherty for being starter.
We are moving along in the match play so do please keep to the scheduled dates for the completion of your matches both for the SHRM and golf shop competitions.
A couple of results :
Frank bt Dolby
Ian Doherty bt Merve

The Ryder Cup will be played on Saturday 3rd August at Kikuoka. Johnny Hill has again very kindly agreed to be our captain and to organise our team. So if you would be available for selection and would wish to take part please contact Johnny direct at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please save this date – Saturday 28th September. This is an event with partners so have a word with you better halves and make sure it is in the diary. Luc is organising the evening and will be sending out more information in the next few weeks.

We had three guests Ray Fitzpatrick, John Molloy and Pat Hutchines. All Golfaholics keen to gather valuable information ahead of the Ryder Cup. In retrospect we should have teamed them up with some of our illustrious pink ball winners – that would have provided them with interesting feedback to take back to the Golfaholics.
We had three players on 15 points so on countback:
1. Stefan 15 points (1 point after 3 holes – 7 points in last three holes)
2. Craig 15 points
3. Luc 15 points
After 8 rounds Stéphane remains the runaway leader with Craig still leading the chase in second place. It is worth noting that Stéphane has already surpassed the previous highest ever tally of points in a season and with his win this week he will again be keeping the handicapper busy. Congratulations Stéphane.
Pink Ball. With the notable absence of several of our usual contenders the ball this week went to Andrew Paton on 8 points who just edged out myself.
Our next event is on Tuesday 23rd July at Junglinster. The starter for this round will be Nathan.
