Jensen beats par to top the leaderboard

first_img “But I didn’t make any fatal errors and I putted well,” he remarked. “The greens are very difficult but I got the pace.” He was the only competitor to beat par in the first round of the English men’s open mid-amateur championship, as the demanding heathland course kept its defences firmly in place with fiery fairways and undulating greens. Woburn’s Steve Jensen shot two-under par 68 to take the first round lead in the Logan Trophy at Beau Desert Golf Club in Staffordshire.  He was the only competitor to beat par in the first round of the English men’s open mid-amateur championship, as the demanding heathland course kept its defences firmly in place with fiery fairways and undulating greens. Defending champion Jorg Paulus is nursing a bad back which makes him loth to hit out and he returned an opening 81. However, he noted that Beau Desert is the 492nd course he has played, as he works his way towards his target of 1000. In the year since he won the championship he has added 48 to his tally.  Jensen worked for his score: “This is a very, very unforgiving golf course, anything which is not on line, whether it’s a putt or a drive or an iron shot is severely punished. It’s very bouncy out there it’s like playing links golf,” he said.  He holds a two shot lead over the field. Matt Wilcox (North Hants) is his closest challenger with his round of level par 70, which also included six birdies. Anthony Harwood (Blackburn) lies third on one-over while Andrew Francis (Bearsted) is a further stroke back. Behind them is a group of 10 players on 73 with a further 11 on 74.  “I fought hard to keep the score going,” he said – revealing that he was motivated by the sight of his name at the top of the on-course leaderboards.  Jensen, a past club champion at Woburn, started and finished with a birdie and managed to add four more during the round, alongside four bogeys.  Defending champion Jorg Paulus is nursing a bad back which makes him loth to hit out and he returned an opening 81.

The average time for all groups was an equally impressive 4 hours.Andy Evan Memorial Best Sportsmanship Award winner Bob “Scar” Taylor (center) receives his trophy from Murray Kerr (left) and Mark Gorda (right).The turnout was somewhat less than expected, most likely in part due to the economy and the low price of oil and gas.  However, those that did take part were able to collect their anniversary golf shirt, which this year paid homage to the loss of good friend and fellow Canadian Wayne Ogonoski.  Sadly, Wayne passed away this year.  He was always a big part of the Jackalope, keeping scores at the tournament, as well as running the charity’s website and always being on hand to help the needy when funds and goods were distributed.Bennie Hansen (left) won Division 3 with 38 Stableford points. Along with the golf shirt, golfers were given quality Jackalope towels donated by Retox Game On and emblazoned with “Jackalope Open 2016 The Fun Tournament 18th Anniversary” and the distinctive Jackalope logo.  Entrants could also pick up tees, stickers and ball markers after the 10 a.m. registration, on their way to the Caesar table.After the traditional noon shotgun start, on course refreshments were handled by JD Crowley on A4 and Blue Moose on B7, plus four liquid refreshment carts that circulated throughout the course.Fred Birch (left) won Division 2 with 39 points.Once back inside the clubhouse, hungry golfers were treated to a delicious buffet provided by the Burapha staff while they waited for their scorecard to be checked and tabulated by John Emmerson and his team.Once the technical prizes were announced and presented there was one final prize to be awarded, the Jack Levy – Macallan Insurance Broker Longest Putt Challenge on hole B9.  This welcome addition to the charity event features a 20,000 baht prize, with 10,000 baht going to the winner and 10,000 baht to the Jackalope charity.  Joe Sullivan sunk the longest first putt, earning 10,000 baht, of which he gave back 5,000 baht to charity.Joe St Laurent (left) was top Rabbit on the day.After the flight winners were announced and trophies handed out, the excitement built throughout the raffle, leading up to the 50/50 draw which this year featured a pot of 180,000 baht, with 90,000 going to the winner. The lucky winner was none other than birthday boy Mark Gorda, who immediately donated his 90,000 baht winnings straight back into the charity coffers. Well done Mark!Birthday boy Mark Gorda blows out his candles as (left to right) Noodle Russell, Murray Kerr and Lumpy Russell lead the audience in the birthday song.In all, early estimates showed the amount raised during the event would be enough to ensure the Jackalope Open would once again be able to donate 400,000 baht to the Jesters Care for Kids charity drive.Special mention goes to the Global Top Group who donated 50,000 baht towards the Jackalope/Camillian Centre. Thank you.Ladies winner Noodle Russell prepares to tee off.Thanks go to Mike (the manager of the golf course) and all the staff at Burapha Golf & Resort for their excellent service provided on the day.  Thanks also to the following businesses and individuals who either donated their time and staff or helped to raise an outstanding amount for the 2016 charity fund: John Kennedy, Colin Mearns, Retox Bar, Macallan Insurance, Jack Levy, TQ, Jesters, Pattaya Sports Club, The Haven Hotel, Indian By Nature, JD Crowley, Blue Moose, Pie Guy, The Clubhouse Jomtien, Q Car Rentals, Pattaya Mail, Rick Moren, Todd Moren, Mike Peters, Stacey O’Toole, Joe and Glenna Ernst, Ryan Woods, Wayne and Anthony Stennes, Alan Vick, Danny Omlund, John Thowsen, Mike O’halloran, Pen and Neil Sandilands, Paul Erb, John Emmerson, Wade Oldenburg, Rob Kennedy, Murray and Mamo Kerr, Doug Campbell, Glenn Unflat, Glen Fiala, Pattaya Pickle, Mark Robbins and Chris Oxley, Bill Freeman, Pinky, Stewart and Randy ‘The Beer Cart Bunch’, and a host of other helpers too numerous to mention.Overall WinnerJason Manley 44ptsDivision 11st Charles Murray 40pts2nd Rob Barnes 39pts3rd Neil Skilton 38ptsDivision 21st Fred Birch 39pts2nd Darren Stanto 37pts3rd Dave Dairah 36ptsDivision 31st Bennie Hansen 38pts2nd Bernie Morris 36pts3rd Mike Lovell 35ptsLadies1st Noodle Russell2nd Pigawan VincentRabbits1st Joe St Laurent2nd Chris Balislie3rd Paal ImhofTechnical prize winnersJoe Sullivan – long putt on #9Near Pin A3: Ladies: Rong Carungay; Rabbits Julian Arawec; Div 3 Chris Harkins; Div 2 Paal Imhof; Div 1 Simon Philbrook.Near Pin A6: Ladies Oyjai Wilanan; Rabbits No Winner; Dive 3 Mike Lowell; Div 2 Barry the Bookie; Div 1 Bob Newell.Near Pin B3: Ladies Noodle Russell; Rabbits No winner; Div 3 Bernie Morris; Div 2 Lumpy Russell; Div 1 JB Russell.Near Pin B8: Ladies Noodle Russell; Rabbits No winner; Div 1 No winner; Div 2 Darren Stanton; Div 3 Andreas GreenacherLong Drive: Rabbits Rob Kennedy; Div 3 Joe Sullivan; Div 2 Peter Thomas; Dive 1 Tyson Dunlop.Andy Evan Memorial Best Sportsmanship AwardBob “Scar” Taylor.last_img read more
