Sunday’s top two: John Heaney, right, and Dean Higgins.
Because Lewiinski’s has always been a halfway house for lost souls the society chose to provide a distraction to those that stayed behind. Irishman John Heaney was glad he stayed as he was involved in a 39 point count back with good friend Dean Higgins and came out the winner. Ian Halfpenny showed he could splash it about a bit as he closed the flight with a solid even par round.
Paul Robinson slotted home the only ‘2’ of the day.
Monday, April 16, Khao Kheow - Stableford
1st Matt Cronin (13) 37pts
2nd Adam Oyston (16) 35pts
1st Bev Byrne (23) 36pts
2nd Christy Knight (22) 35pts
With the majority of the society’s core members away to the UK, Bintan, Khao Yai or Ireland, the field was wide open. Irishman Matt Cronin jumped through the unprotected breach in the society’s defenses and snatched the A Flight gold on the day with a very impressive 37 points. Big Adam Oyston took the silver two strokes adrift.
Bev Byrne was the toast of the bar as her even par round took top spot in B Flight. Christy ‘good’ Knight, unaccustomed to taking a back seat to anyone on this course, had to settle for second place with Sean Soden getting the short stick and left out in the cold.
John Rehm pocketed a healthy 2’s pot.
Wednesday, April 18, Mountain Shadow - Stableford
1st Max Scott (5) 36pts
2nd Bob Watson (3) 35pts
3rd Savatore Brizzi (8) 33pts
A field wracked by Songkran defectors took on the often unforgiving layout of Mountain Shadow. With the heat, the lads were reticent to avail themselves of the favorably priced liberations of the course, which only served to make it tougher.
Max Scott was the toast of the day with a best on the day even par round, as Bob Watson filled the Silver spot a shot off the pace. Savatore Brizzi completed the frame a further two strokes back.
Bob Watson and the headline boy John Heaney split the 2’s pot.
