2nd Yui Bietry (9) 37pts

B Flight

1st Colin Davis (17) 36pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (20) 36pts

Age transcended beauty as Jan ‘the quite one’ Eriksen took the upper flight on a count back as he edged the ‘Junoesque’ Yui Bietry; both Yui and Jan both posted best of the day 37 points scores.

(L-R) Jan Eriksen, Colin Davis and Jimmy the Captain. (L-R) Jan Eriksen, Colin Davis and Jimmy the Captain.

The calculator was out in B Flight as the management pair of Colin ‘the Donkey’ Davis and Peter ‘Don O’Corleone’ Henshaw both ground out even par rounds.  It was no surprise to most that the Donkey came out on top – He Haw, He Haw-ways does!

Please spare a thought for Yui’s other half Pierre ‘the Magician’ – his rip the card up trick  did not quite go to plan as he could not find all the pieces and had no option but to N.R.

Yui completed her round with a ‘2’, along with Thierry Petrement.

Monday, Sept. 3, Royal Lakeside – Stableford

1st Paul Hack (13) 38pts

2nd John Harney (11) 36pts

3rd Brian Prudden (17) 36pts

Ha!  I warned you on Friday that name would come up again.  Big hitting Aussie Paul Hack was the only player to better his handicap with a solid 38 points at the tough Royal Lakeside.

Paul was closely followed a couple of strokes back by John Harney who was a count back ahead of Brian Prudden on even par rounds.

A couple of old vets, Jim Elphick and Mike Jeffreys, split the ‘2’s pot.

Wednesday, Sept. 5, Bangpra – Stableford

A Flight

1stJohn Harney (11) 34pts

2nd Eddy Beilby (16) 33pts

3rd Pat Reagan (13) 32pts

B Flight

1st Joe Tynan (31) 37pts

2nd Colin Davis (17) 35pts

3rd Lew Szigligeti (18) 34pts

John Harney, obviously unsatisfied with Monday’s second place, decided to put the pedal down at the Bangpra course designed by the Japan Golf Promotion Co. Ltd.  His effort was rewarded with first place in the upper flight.  John’s podium mates were Eddy ‘The Eagle’ Beilby and Ireland’s young Pat Regan as they took second and third respectively, although Pat did need the aid of a count back decision over C-B Thomsen.

Irishman Joe ‘Sat-nav’ Tynan signaled that there might be more good times ahead as he was the only player to better par with a rock solid 37 points.  That gave him top podium spot in B Flight and man of the match.  Colin ‘the Donkey’ was two strokes off the pace, as newly arrived Aussie Lou Zig-Zag tidied up the flight.

Friday, Sept. 7, Treasure Hills – Stableford

A Flight

1st Colin Davis (17) 34pts

2nd Thierry Petrement (10) 34pts

B Flight

1st Lim Reid (27) 30pts

2nd Lou Szigligeti (18) 30pts

Hey where’s ‘Broad more’ Bob?  Well before the field could get too smug about keeping Mr. Newell off the podium, it was pointed out that he had to take a week’s rest to let his golf shafts cool down.

So that left ‘the Donkey’ an opportunity to vault atop the podium for the second time in a week and including a second place finish to boot but he did need the aid of a count back to edge Thierry Petrement, as both were tied on best of the day 34 points.

A count back also sorted out B Flight as Jim Reid got the better of the Aussie ‘traffic warden’ Lou Zig-Zag for the top spot.

Brian Prudden was sole heir to the rollover 2’s pot which he split with Marlene.

If you haven’t heard, no doubt you soon will Brian ‘the wireless’ Wilkinson is getting married again – No kidding!
