Terry ‘pork chop’ Mangan has long been considered a player of great potential, or was it a sand bagging bandit. Well, whatever. In any event Terry showed the ability all day that has only previously come in flashes as he brought home the ‘bacon’ with a man of the match net 67 performance, More importantly he picked up the lead crystal whiskey glass and a bottle of Jameson’s. Aberdeen’s favorite son Mark Wood followed Terry up the podium steps a stroke adrift.
Sunday’s winner Terry Mangan, right, is congratulated by Colin the Golf Manager.
B Flight turned out to be an all Irish affair as Ed Delaney took the top spot with a rock solid net 68. Peter ‘Don O’corleone’ Henshaw continued his steady improvement of late with a creditable net 70.
Dropping down to the Red Flight we saw the society first lady Sim Davis win the Medal with a solid net 68. As many readers and players know, both Terry and Sim go on to qualify for the gold Medal slated for January 2013.
Terry Mangan, Mark Wood, Tom Byrne, Jon Haugen and Pete Godfrey shared the 2’s pot.
Monday, May 14, Khao Kheow B&C - Stableford
1st Andy Harrison (14) 37pts
2nd Salvatore Brizzi (7) 34pts
1st Christy Knight (21) 33pts
2nd Peter Henshaw (18) 31pts
Andy Harrison was the highest point getter of the day as he was the only player to better par with 37 points on the favorite of many, Khao Kheow. Andy was followed up the podium steps by Salvatore Brizzi whose 34 points edged Aussie Lindsay Semple into the presentation crowd on count back.
The Irish pair of Christy ‘Good’ Knight and Peter ‘Don O’corleone’ Henshaw filled the Irish flight formally known as B Flight. Christy top scored with 34 points as Peter, who was speechless, (nothing to do with the Black stuff) stole the silver on 31 points.
No 2’s were recorded so it’s a rollover on Wednesday.
Wednesday, May 2, Royal Lakeside - Stableford
1st Jim Bell (16) 35pts
2nd Paul Hack (12) 34pts
1st Esara Duangari (33) 34pts
2nd Lou Szigligeti (17) 31pts
This was the last fixture of the week in deference to the PSC monthly comp which wrapped up the week on Friday. The lads and ladies went to the demanding layout and greens of Bangpra.
Aussie Jim Bell topped A Flight and the entire field with 35 points, as no player managed to better par. A trio of players became knotted on 34 points for the minor places; Paul Hack had the better of the math to take the silver spot while Thierry Petrement and Terry ‘Pork chop’ Mangan fell completely out of the money.
There was no top man in B Flight as the highest score was posted by a lady, Esara Duangsri, with a very good 34 points. Lou (the soi 13 traffic warden) ‘Spaghetti’ was delighted to grab the silver with 31 points.
Esara added to her winnings as she had the only 2 of the day.
