Sunday, July 6, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st Lawrie McBride (14) 37pts

2nd Claude Harder (14) 37pts

B Flight

1st William Peach (17) 42pts

2nd Vic Hester (15) 38pts

Near Pins:  No 5 Bill Peach, No 8 Bob StAuban, No 12 Lawrie McBride, No 16 Gerry Roche

William Peach left nothing to chance on this day as he surpassed the entire field by a clear four points.  It was an excellent 42-pointer which gave Bill the top step in B Flight and the man of the match honours.  Vic ‘the inflictor’ was true to his handle as he closed the flight with a very useful 38 points.

Bill Peach.Bill Peach.

A Flight was contested right to the very end as pay window specialist Lawrie McBride had to rely on a count back to edge Claude Harder, both on 37 points.  The outcome could have been very different as all Claude’s points were amassed on only fourteen of the eighteen holes, his round containing ten pars and four no scoring holes.

Pat Regan, Ed Wyckoff, Bob St Aubin and Jim Crook shared the 2’s pot.

Monday, July 7, Pattana – Stableford

A Flight

1st Lawrie McBride (14) 37pts

2nd Rod Brown (15) 34pts

B Flight

1st Aiden Murray (19) 41pts

2nd Phil Davies (22) 35pts

A relatively modest group, which can perhaps be attributed to the low season and back to back playing days, took on the Pattana layout on Monday.

The day belonged to society regular Aiden Murray whose 41 point performance stood him atop the B Flight podium and gave him the man of the match honours.  Aiden was six clear of Phil Davies.

In the senior circuit it was Ireland’s man on fire Lawrie McBride who made it two A Flight wins on the bounce with a steady 37 points.  A trio of competitors vied for the silver spot; Aussie star Rod Brown, Freddy Starbeck and Co Killkeny’s Tom Gorey, with Rod emerging from the count back in the silver spot but Freddy and Tom did not go quietly.

A couple of Aussie’s shared the ‘2’s pot, Paul Bray and Geoff Bracegirdle.

Wednesday, July 9, Bangpra A & B – Stableford

A Flight

1st Greg Bates (11) 35pts

2nd Paul Bray (6) 34pts

3rd Freddy Starbeck (12) 32pts

B Flight

1st Phil Davies (22) 34pts

2nd William Peach (17) 33pts

3rd Peter Terry (21) 31pts

The field showed great spirit in taking on the lightning fast greens at here in the heat and humidity that was well into the 70’s again.  Spirit alone however proved not enough to conquer the Japan promotion designed Bangpra layout.

There were both winners and losers though and the best round of the day was understandably in A Flight in the person of Australia’s Greg Bates who had a modest 35 points, which was relatively awe-inspiring given his cohorts’ efforts.  Greg was followed in by Aussie star Paul Bray and Freddy ‘the quite one’ Starbeck with 34 and 32 points respectively.

Phil Davies ruled B Flight with 34 points, with the headline boy one shot adrift and Peter Terry took the flight bronze with 31 points.

Not surprisingly no 2’s were recorded.

Thursday, July 10, Siam Waterside – Stableford

A Flight

1st Chris Doak (12) 34pts

2nd Serge Straeton (17) 34pts

3rd Paul Bray (6) 33pts

B Flight

1st Phil Davies (22) 39pts

2nd Peter Terry (21) 38pts

3rd Barry Elphick (22) 36pts

The rumors that Phil Davies was not winning were quickly dispelled as his 39 points was the top score on the day and gave him gold in B Flight and man of the match honours.  This was also Phil’s second win in as many games, coupled with Monday’s second place finish (perhaps his name should be in the bold print?)  Peter Terry made it a second pay window visit in the week as he followed Phil into the barn a shot adrift.  Barry Elphick tied up the flight with a steady even par return.

The top rung in A Flight was decided by the dreaded count back as both Chris Doak and Serge Straeton carded 34 points each, with Phil getting the gold and Monsieur Straeton the silver.  Aussie star Paul Bray made it a profitable week as he took third on 34 points to go with his second place on Wednesday, and it also puts in front for the player of the month comp.

Kevin Rogers, Bruce Anderson, Freddy Starbeck, Peter Terry and Manfred Hanke shared the ‘2’s pot.
