Diplomats’ Challenge 2014 – Raffles Country Club Lake Course 17th Nov


Dear Golf League members

It went according to plan - executed with some panache against the diplomats. The result of our 3rd match of the year was a victory by 2 games to one.

The 3rd edition of the Diplomats' Challenge 2014 was held at the recently upgraded Lake Course, Raffles Country Club on Monday morning. Leading our charge on the 1st tee was Press Club Captain Patrick Daniel (SPH) and Ven Sreenivasan (Business Times) against Captain & Amb Philip Green (Australia) and Amb Thomas Kupfer (Switzerland).

Quoting Ven, "We were cruising into the 2nd nine with a couple of birdies but the ambassadors fought back strongly" until the 17th hole when the game was decided 2&1.

Tony Mallek (SPH) and Dicky Goh (Hindustan Times) took on Amb Husni Zai Yaacob (Malaysia) and Amb Sven Hakan (Sweden). It was an ideal morning for golf with a light breeze and cloudy skies. Amb Husni played very well but the Press Club duo won the game 1&0 with Tony & Dicky taking turns to either win or hold the ambassadors.

Representing the Press Club for the 3rd game was Han Fook Kwang (SPH) and Edward Stanislaus (The Edge) against Amb Manuel Talavera (Peru) and Jon Connolly (Australia). Fook Kwang said "Amb Talavera played outstanding golf and we were down 4 in the first four holes! In the end, we lost 4&2 despite Edward throwing everything, including the kitchen sink, at the diplomats".
