Aiden Murray - medal winner.Aiden Murray – medal winner.

Aiden Murray was well contested to the very end, having to rely on count back to edge A Flight’s inform golfer Christian Boysen, both on net 70, to win the monthly medal for September 2014. The victory qualifies Aiden for entry in to the Lewiinski’s Wall of Fame as with every monthly medal winner, he also qualifies himself for the year end Gold medal competition held after the December medal winner is determined. Aiden also won the lead crystal cut whiskey glass and a bottle of Jameson’s Irish whiskey.

Jim Elphick and Akikmoto Yamamoto were both a shot adrift with Jim getting the nod in the count back. Because it was a rather large turnout, a fourth podium spot was added, which Nicoulas Fauroux was very grateful for, with his even par round.

Christian’s gallant effort filled the top spot in A Flight. Four players were log jammed on net 71, and when the divots had settled ‘Jimmy two shots’ Elphick emerged out on top, with Aussie star Bob Watson picking up the bronze. As Ireland’s Tom Byrne rounded out the flight, Big Dave Stockman was left at sea level and pot less.

Nicoulas Fauroux, Bill Peach and Colin Davis shared a very healthy 2’s pot.

Back at Lewiinski’s and after the presentation Aiden very kindly shared his bottle of Jameson’s with his new found friends.

2nd John Pierrel (11) 35 pts

B Flight

1st Christian Boysen (17) 35 pts

2nd Aiden Murray (17) 32 pts

Freddy ‘the quiet one’ Starbeck was man-of-the-match and tops in A Flight as he put his best competitive effort for some time to lap the field with a best on the day 38 points. Freddy was also the only player to better his handicap, this coupled with the only 2 of the day. John Pierrel threw a handy 35 points at the always difficult Khao Kheow layout to fill the silver spot.

The inform pair of Christian Boysen, 35 points, and Sunday’s top man Aiden Murray, 32 points, filled the gold and silver places in B Flight but Aiden did need to gain a count back decision over the unlucky Nick ‘Elvis’ Shaw.

Wednesday, September 17, St Andrews – Stableford

2nd Ed Delaney (26) 34 pts

3rd Brian Davison (23) 32 pts

John Pierrel, second on Tuesday, took no chances and no prisoners with his man-of-the-Match 43 points. That was four more than his A Flight compatriot Odur Olafsson with a fine 39 points, and a further two from Aberdeen’s favourite son, Mark Wood.

Terry Dyer, continuing to play effectively despite an ever decreasing handicap topped B Flight with a sound 39 points. But he needed a count back decision over Sunday’s Medal runner up Christian Boysen (not having much luck in the old count back department is Christian). The bronze spot also went to a count back as Ron Grafton and Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby were tied on 35 points, the former filled the flight spot as Eddy was left at sea level and pot less.

C Flight was not to be out done as it had a 39 pointer in the form of Darren Doyle. Darren was five clear of Irishman Ed Delaney. In the final count back of the day, Brian Davidson edged Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw, both on 32 points. Peter joined Eddy on the beach.

John Coombs and Eddy Beilby shared the 2’s pot with John Pierrel.
