Despite some outstanding point’s totals, the story of the day was the Donkeys enormous 44 stroke masterpiece; this gave Colin the C Flight honors and the President’s Trophy. (Heehaw) ways comes good at the right time! He also gets his name on the wall of shame.
Sunday’s winner Colin Davis.
Ken Kelly put in a fine performance with a steady 39 points for second spot while Adam Oyston carded an even par round as he filled the flight.
Alex Tregurtha must have thought he was in with a chance with his B Flight winning 41 points and on most days he would –he just picked the wrong day. Vic ‘the inflictor’ Hester took the silver with 38 points by a shot in front of Irelands Colum ‘the lord mayor of Dublin’ Mullen.
Jumping up to the flagship flight proved to be just as exciting as Irishman Tom McManus took top spot on39 points. Tom’s 39 points was two clear of the tandem of Broadmore Bob Newell and Gerry O’Dwyer, another Irishman I suspect? Anyway, the resulting count back dictated that they finished in that order.
D Flight was a tight affair as Warren Holland grabbed top on the podium with 35 points, leaving the Irish pair of John O’Neil and Christy ‘good’ Knight stringed out in single digits.
There was a dozen 2’s on the day.
Back at Lewiinski’s the new President thanked Eddy Beilby for all the hard work he had done while in office, and looked forward to the year ahead and the staff for all their hard work and for the Buffet.

1st Ajit Amin (18) 35pts
2nd Geoff Kubas (20) 33pts
3rd Ayoko Pueschi (20) 32pts
Off once again to the fantastic Dye layout at Khao Kheow, the difficulty of which shows in the gang’s points returns, with no player bettering or playing to par.
Co-man of the match and A Flight winner was Irishman Tom McManus as he used all his talent and a strong finish to edge Tore Eliassen on count back. Terry ‘the silent assassin’ Mangan was just a shot back as he closed the flight.
Ajit Amen took top spot in B Flight and a share of man of the match as he matched Tom’s score. Geoff ‘Elvis’ Kubas was on song as he took the silver and Ayoko Pueschi was a further shot back to round out the flight.
Paraic McManus, Tim Hickey, Pen Caruthers, Pat Hanafin and Geoff Kubas shared the 2’s pot

It seemed like there were more 40’s today than you would find in an augmentation clinic. And of course, it is the scribe’s job to keep you abreast of such observations. But enough of the quip’s as one senses that the scribe is only humoring himself.
B Flight provided the day’s man of the match in the person of Chris Barratt. Chris’s best on the day 42 point haul left Peter Bauer down a step, despite his own fine 41 point effort. The flight was filled as all the luck of the Irish in the shape of John Feehan held sway over the luckless Paul Robinson as both were locked on 39 points. Paul did however slot home a 2.
J-P Maffray who carded 41 points topped Terry ‘red card’ Mangan by three clear digits in the senior flight as Patrick +three Kelly, playing of the blue tees, rounded out the flight.
David Dunn was the only player in C Flight to reach forty points and so stood atop the podium. His C Flight compatriots were the erstwhile septuagenarian (ask Christy, Jimmy), Fergus O’Brien second and Mogen Pedersen the bronze.
Thierry Petrement, Paraic McManus, Peter Bauer, John Feehan, Paul Robinson and Mogen Pederson shared the 2’s pot.
Friday, Jan 27, Mountain Shadow - Stableford
1st Peter Kelly (10) 37pts
2nd John Nalty (13) 36pts
3rd Tom McManus (11) 34pts
1st Tony Dolphin (17) 31pts
2nd Peter McCann (16) 30pts
3rd Ajit Amin (18) 29pts
1st Tom Gorey (21) 42pts
2nd John O’Neil (19) 35pts
3rd Ayoko Pueschi (20) 34pts
If 42 points was successful Wednesday, why not try it again on Friday? And Tom Gorey did, and the result was about the same with a five digit-point victory over the field. Tom may not (and can rest assured the field will be checking) recognize his new handicap.
Fellow Irishman John O’Neil covered the cost of his game with a C Flight place 35 points. Ayoko Pueschi edged Jim ‘the silent’ Bell 18-17 on the last nine to fill the last slot.
Plus 3’s Dad, Peter, was the only other player to better par as he stood atop the big boys flight. John Nalty put in a solid even par round for the silver and Tom McManus had a nervous wait as he emerged from a four-way count back to fill the flight; the unlucky count back victims were Connie Whalsh, J-P Maffray, and Tim Hickey.
B Flight could not quite solve the Mountain Shadow puzzle, as Tony Dolphin was top man on 31 points. Peter McCann and Ajit Amin were stringed out in single digits to close the flight and the week’s golf
Once again there were six ‘2’ recorded.
