I’m just writing to you to pass on my thanks to the boys who ferried me around last week in Pattaya and Bangkok, Montri and Jum. Also thanks for letting Jum drive me to and from the course in the "boss’s" Lexus in Bangkok, I felt spoilt. His ability to organize "better" caddies for me was appreciated.
I’m looking forward to October/November when I’ll be back and hopefully bringing some colleagues. One of the Swedish guys I was grouped with is celebrating his 60th birthday in Pattaya arounfd the end of October or early November and he’s invited me to join teh party. He nicknamed me "Aussie Shark" after I hit a couple of 300 yard plus drives and got on a couple of the par 5’s at Phoenix CC in 2.
What my coach back in Australia (John Tolhurst) had been telling me about using a driver finally clicked and the ball kept disappearing in the distance. My caddie at Muang Kaeow challenged me to drive the green on the 16th into the wind. I hit the green on the full but unfortunately the ball didn’t stick and I finished in the back of the left greenside bunker and only finishe with a par..
I’d also like to thank Jim and the back-office team for their seamless organization.
