Gerhard is Top Scorer of the Week

Gerhard Burger was the highest scorer of the week with a forty-one at Eastern Star on Saturday and a third division win. The closest anyone got to him was the thirty-nines at the Monday outing to Crystal Bay from Howard Tyler (Div 1 winner) and Mark Reuben (Div 2 winner). Mike Rushant also had the same score for his Div 2 win at Phoenix on Thursday.


Gerhard who currently plays off eighteen (now sixteen after that result) heralds from South Africa and has made frequent visits to Thailand for the past five years. But this is his first ever win with the TRGG. Congratulations Gerhard may you have many more.


A further note to all players at the TRGG the courses are getting extremely busy and our entry numbers are getting bigger and bigger so it is very important to sign up early if you want to play a course that you like which is on our February schedule

(this can be found at www.trgg.biz) and avoid possible disappointment.


The star of the week was a trip on Monday the 1st to Crystal Bay. A great turnout and two very full divisions.

Division two was a win for Mark Reuben with his thirty-nine. Second and just one back was Trvor Thorley with thirty-eight. Third was Joe Kowalczyk at thirty-seven.

Division one went to Howard Taylor also with thirty-nine. Second was Jon Dean at thirty-seven. Third went to Steve Smith with thirty-six. Lots of new names these days

There were three two’s from Jon Dean at the forth and John Merritt and Chris Parkington at the seventeenth.

Division two was a win for Joe Kowalczyk with thirty-seven and two places better than the previous day. Behind him was Liam Horgan at thirty-four after winning the count back over Mike Rushant both at thirty-four.

Division one saw Jon Dean take the top spot with his thirty-six just squeezing out Tewin Lamthong by one point. She found herself on thirty-five. Another Lady was third and that was Mod Chaviraksa at thirty-four.

Well the record for two’s was well and truly broken this time.
