Gudde Moien Dear Frogs,
Round 9 CITCO.
Wednesday September 12 was a perfect evening play golf. There was a great Frogs turnout and it was well organised by our CITCO started Tim van Dijk, despite his e-mail issues.
Last night was also the final of the Matchplay event when Paul Goes beet Craig Ferreira by the slender margin of 1 up. Paul was one up after the first hole and he held on to the lead on the ninth tee. Craig could only half the ninth, so Paul was a worthy winner. The Dutch will be celebrating this victory for some time to come.
Paul Goes is leading the overall competition with the final event to be held on October 6, probably at Kikuoka, but the venue has to be confirmed. October the 6 is also the FROGS annual dinner. Please respond to Rob McCormack regarding the dinner, partner are invited too.
Round 9 ended with my fist FROGS victory. It was hard fought with Mark Gilles. Both of us had 19 points, but I had a better count back. In third place was Stephane Ayache with 16 points. The standard scratch for the event was 14. The pink ball prize was just as competitive. The pink ball almost went to my playing partner Frank Maitry, but actually went to Bruce McKay who had a very low score!!
The longest drive went to Steve (muscles) Brown, Nearest the pin went to Andrew Paton whose birdie effort just lipped out of the 7th hole. That was one of Andrew’s three 3s that evening. The Leary went to Gregor Dalrymple.
