KK UT Challenge 2013

A two day event contested between a team from Khon Kaen and a team from Udon Thani. The event is played according to Match Play rules; Day 1 being doubles format, Day 2 being singles. This year each team again fielded 10 players.
 

 Twenty golfers arrived at Ubolratana GC on the morning of Tuesday, 8th October for the second KKUT Challenge, Khon Kaen winning the inaugural event.

At the end of the first day, the surprising events of a year previous had repeated themselves, but this time in reverse!!! Udon Thani claimed all five of the doubles matches and raced into a 10-0 lead on day one with 20 points up for grabs in the singles the following day.
Wednesday was singles day, and all met at Singha Park on another glorious day for golf. Team Captain, Mick Collins attempted to frontload his line up in an attempt to claw some of the deficit back, but it proved too much of an uphill task and Udon Thani ran out winners on the singles day by 11-9 and 21-9 overall.
 

All in all, another highly competitive and successful event. Thanks to Mick Collins and Terry Aston (pictured above, Mick handing the trophy to Terry for safe keeping until next year!!!) for their efforts in making the event not only possible but the success it has been.
