Sim the society’s first lady Sim Davis was top performer in the Red Flight with a very good net 71 and so gets to join Adam in the Gold Medal later in the year.
Back at the presentation Adam cracked open the Jameson’s and split it with the lads.
Bob Newell and Eddy Beilby split a very healthy 2’s pot.
Monday, July 9, Crystal Bay B&C – Stableford
1st Jim Elphick (23) 38pts
2nd Salvatore Brizzi (6) 35pts
3rd Rod Brown (18) 34pts
It was off to Crystal Bay to tackle the B&C nines and that was just fine with Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick who was man of the match as he was the only contestant to better his handicap with a fine 38 points.
Jim’s A Flight winning effort was three points clear of Salvatore ‘the thunder from down under’ Brizzi and yet another up on Rod Brown, Barbara Cooper, Ed ‘our man in the white house’ Wyckoff and Mike the ‘welsh wonder’ Jeffreys. There was no ‘ladies before gentlemen’ as Rod filled the podium and he was also the sole recipient of the 2’s pot.
Wednesday, July 11, St. Andrews - Stableford
1st Chaten Patel (11) 39pts
2nd J P Maffray (8) 37pts
1st Gerry Power (17) 37pts
2nd Nick Odnoral (18) 37pts
St Andrews is another tough track where anything close to your handicap usually gives you a shout. Today, Chaten the Rajah Patel made it another win for India as his 39 points were more than enough and so keeps his purple patch going. Chaten was two clear of Frenchman JP Maffray.
B Flight saw Gerry ‘the Irish rover’ Power and Aussie Nick Odnoral both card 37 points as the luck of the Irish holed up for the top spot.
Peter Barathy and Mike Jeffreys split the 2’s pot.
Friday, July 13, Royal Lakeside - Stableford
1st Ed Wyckoff (9) 36pts
2nd Connie Walsh (28) 32pts
1st Geoff Kubas (21) 39pts
2nd Mike Jeffreys (19) 32pts
The gang took the always intriguing drive up the freeway to Royal Lakeside. Englishman Geoff ‘Elvis’ Kubas enjoyed the ride back more than the rest as he was the only player to better par on the day; Geoff arrived early and the putting practice paid off. Geoff’s 39 points was seven clear of Mike ‘the welsh wizard’ Jeffreys, after it was noticed that Greg Bates had mistakenly played off the wrong handicap.
In the big boy’s flight it was Ed ‘our man in the white house’ who stood atop the podium as he edged Irishman Connie Walsh on cont back after both submitted even par rounds.
Possible the biggest smile at the presentation belonged to Ian Wilson as he slotted home the only 2 of the day.
