Golf Outing - Kau Sai Chau South
Golf Outing - Kau Sai Chau South20 Oct 2021
We enjoyed a surprisingly pleasant event at KSC South on the 22nd of July. Despite the typhoon signal 3 being hosted on Monday, we were blessed with a bright, hot day. Sadly the course condition was not as spotless as the weather as it had suffered from the recent downpours so some bunkers were filled with water and the greens was a bit muddy. Such is golf and the rules of golf are designed to allow for such conditions.
Again we were pleased to welcome some new faces to join the event, with this being the first time for Mark Li and Jane Fung to take part in a Golf Society event. Welcome aboard!
The first to tee off were Andrew Wood, Robin Zavou, David Williams and Nickolas Dalais. Andrew Wood had an excellent day on the links with 9 pars and 8 bogeys fora gross 80 and 37 stableford points to claim victory.
In my group I partnered Choy Sheung Ki, Thomas Yiu and Mark Gah Chun Li. Mark Li has only been a member of our golf society member for a month. Previously he played in UK so this was literally his first time at KSC. He did not play particularly well over the front 9 but he picked up his swing slowly on the back 9. His cunning plan was to try to use his right elbow to lead his swing. His idea being that this would help his hands arrive further forward at impact to improve the ball contact. Whatever the technical merits of this might be, it certainly seemed to work for him as with this drill he was able to hit his 5 wood 200 yards and land softly at hole 16. With only 6 feet left to the hole, Mark was able to claim the nearest to the pin.
Choy Sheung Ki has only been playing golf for six months. On hole 13, Choy mishit his first two shots leaving him with an uphill shot of 150 yards. Unflustered, with 7 iron in hand, he stuck his approach shot to 7 yards short of the hole resulting in a bogey. For a newcomer to the game, a very successful result. Well done!
