Bjarne Kjersner clinches MVP, with two tourneys to go

By Christer Holmvall

SAMSUNG CSCOn a great Saturday in late April the Blufox-Oakwood Asia golf tournament was held at Rachakram Golf outside of Bangkok.

The tournament saw Bjarne Kjersner (first from right in the photo) emerge as the winner of the aggregated MVP – Most Valuable Player prize. This is a prize put up by Six Senses resort on Yao Noi island for the player who over the year generates most points. As Bjarne Kjersner now has a total of 20.5 points over his nearest opponent, and as it is only possible to get max 10 points in one tournament, this MVP prize will now be his as there are only two more tournaments left this season, one on 24 May and one on 7 June.

In the Blufox-Oakwood Asia torunament, the A group was won by Mats Hom on an impressive 37 points paying off of a 5 handicap. Juha Saarinen came 2nd also on 37 points and Christian Stenhammar took third place in the A group on 35 points. In total there was 16 birdies in the A group.

The B group was won by John Andersson followed by Leo Alexandersen and Lars Anderson – lots of last names starting with “A” and finishing in son/sen……. There was only one birdie in the B group with Leo Achieving this.

The C group was won by Sami Janne and the guest group was won by Chartana. Strangely enough there were no birdies in the C or CC/guest groups. This just showed how well the players in the A group played on this glorious Saturday.

There was a dinner and prize ceremony after the tournament at the Admirals Pub on Sukhumvit Soi 24

As mentioned Bjarne has already clinched the VIP race to Six Senses trophy but note that there are two tournaments still left. This is the Club Championship sponsored by Atlas Copco on the 24th of May at Alpine and the final is the 7th of June which is Danish Golf Day at Thana City.
