Season round-up

One major problem for the webmaster when unable to attend the FROGS events is that some results arrive here with a major delay.
However, I have just been informed that our executive editor and master mind, Mr David Hopwood, claimed the win at the three club challenge.
Steve Kaiser and Phil Woodger won the LAB Pairs in style.
Check your e-mail to see his latest analysis regarding the FROGS’s past, present and future and last but not least the hairy situation in the Friggen’Mittee.

Last event of the season is the KPMG Individuals scheduled for tomorrow at Canach.

Halfway stage results from the CITCO Grand Prix 2009

Delayed information as the webmaster was not informed…

Quoting Mr Botfield:
“Well done to all participants in Saarbrucken last night…what a fantastic meal….well done Jonny Hill for an excellent trip !!!!

Last night was the half way stage of the CITCO Grand Prix (see attached leaderboard, yep it’s Botfield on Top)….many thanks to our beloved sponsors, it’s brewing up for another tight end of season battle and even Mr Biggar is still in the hunt….come on everyone, fantastic prizes and honours are still up for grab for all of us underachievers (that’s how Bart refers to us all)…..

Botfield found some form and scored 18 pts, narrowly beating Gillies 17 and Luc (also 17) into 2nd and 3rd place…with Frank (Nearest the Pin) leaving before the prize giving and Gillies winning the shortest ever Longest Drive, these prizes were subsequently awarded to Dennis (16) and Winters (15)…will give a sleeve of FROG balls and maybe a glove too to Frank next time out !!!

Last place went to the man who lost his wallet, Mr TIM TOBIN with 8 pts, but given his state of distress about the lost wallet, it was tempting to name and shame the 2nd worst player of the night (MR CRAIG FERREIRA “phone number deleted”) but of course the rules of this society means that i can’t give out that information…

A clean sweep of the only guest prize was performed with an amazing 18 pts from Serge Bijnens, who was suitably rewarded with a FROGs t-shirt and balls and in addition a one and half stroke cut to his handicap !!! Welcome back Serge !!!

No more FROG events in June, but unhook those caravans…round 6 of CITCO Grand Prix is on July 1st at Preisch and it will NOT be played on the German 9 !!! Round 7 is set for Junglinster on the 15th and Round 8 also Junglinster on the 29th !!!

In between we have the famous “LAB Pairs falling out with your partner if he is called Steve Brown” competition at Canach on 22nd) (Steve, will you be my partner again this year?) Sort yourself into pairs, you still have a few weeks to ditch one another…also the RYDER CUP will be held at Canach on the 25th…the FROGS have won it ONCE and it has been played for at least three times….it is our DESTINY….FREEDOM YA BAS !!!!
Sorry a wave of patriotism has swept me of my feet and filled my eyes with tears….maybe just hayfever…back to normal now…

Finally in the SHRM matchplay, one result from last night saw Botfield beating Gillies on the last hole…see schedule attached and get your ties played very soon as it is the holiday season coming up !!!!

Anything that i have forgotten is nothing to do with ignorance…but if it is due to sheer arrogance, then i don’t apologise for that !!!”

Seventh CITCO event – results

Mr. Botfield shot an impressive 1-over-par score with his brand new golf clubs to win the seventh CITCO event of 2008 tonight edging out Dennis Robertson on the count-back. Excellent conditions at Kikuoka and a good turn-out.

2. Dennis Robertson 20 points
3. Ian Doherty 18 points

Nearest to pin: Alan Botfield
Longest drive: Alan Botfield

Steve Brown didn’t follow up on his recent run of good form, so Nick Montague took over the lead on the overall CITCO leaderboard with 81 points. Steve Brown and Dennis Robertson are tied second at 78 with Jonathan Hill in fourth place on 78 points.

Next event is next week the 30 July at Preisch (see schedule). Francis Parisis will act as starter and send out the invitation shortly.

The SHRM matchplay saw one match tonight between Andrew Paton and Russell Edwards. They both struggled but Andrew came out the winner. As previously mentioned, Alan Botfield will play Merve Herneman in the first semi-final, and in the other Andrew Paton will meet the winner of the match between Ayzo van Aysinga and Craig Ferreira.

3. Craig Ferreira 23 points

Nearest to pin: Nathan Sneyd
