Sunday, Feb. 5, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st Jack Grindvold (4) 40pts

2nd Connie Walsh (11) 36pts

3rd Thierry Petrement (11) 36pts

B Flight

1st Colin Davis (16) 37pts

2nd Ian Halfpenny (12) 37pts

3rd Dave Driscoll (15) 35pts

C Flight

1st Barry Tregurtha (18) 41pts

2nd Jim Bell (19) 38pts

3rd Sim Davis (26) 37pts

Near Pins:  No 4 Dave Driscoll; No 9 Morgan McEvoy; No 12 Barry Tregurtha; No 16 Pierre Bietry.

Well if it needed to be confirmed, Barry Tregurtha showed today why he deserves to carry on playing here in Pattaya as he humbled the defenseless Green Valley with 41 points.  (Six weeks ago Barry threatened to pack golf in as his game was in bits; however since then he has won five out of his last six outings).

Barry’s C Flight winning score was three clear of Jimmy Bell and a further shot ahead of the Donkey’s better half, the society’s first lady Sim ‘card’ Davis.

Arguably Jack Grindvold with a 40 point even par round of the stick masterpiece in A Flight was the round of the day.  Connie Walsh took the flight silver with a count back success over Thierry Petremont.

The Donkey’s return to form helped Sim with the week’s groceries as his backside 37 points was more evenly dispersed than Ian Halfpenny’s while  Dave Driscoll closed the flight on count back with 35 points over Billy Briton.

There were seven 2’s

Monday, Feb. 6, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

A  Flight

1st Barry Power (11) 35pts

2nd Bob Stokes (11) 35pts

3rd John Oswald (11) 33pts

B Flight

1st David Dunne (20) 37pts

2nd Keith Murphy (19) 37pts

3rd Jim Bell (19) 32pts

Mountain Shadow can play as tough as any course around and that was certainly in evidence as only two competitors bettered their handicap on the day; unusually both flights were left to the perils of count back.

In A Flight, Barry Power in the first count back on 35 points got the verdict over second placed Bob Stokes.  John Oswald got the same reward for third as he edged J-P Maffray.

B Flight provided the winner as Irish men dominated.  David Dunne with a fine 37 points was man of the match with a count back win over the unlucky Keith Murphy.  Jimmy Houdini’ bell closed the flight as he put together a fine even par round.

Six 2’s were recorded as Barry Power claimed a brace.

Wednesday, Feb. 8, Bangpakong – Stableford

A Flight

1st Bob Stokes (11) 40pts

2nd Conner Doyle (13) 37pts

3rd Chris Barrett (14) 36pts

B Flight

1st Martin Allard (24) 41pts

2nd Colin Davis (17) 40pts

3rd Michael Craven (18) 38pts

The entire field attacked the Bangpakong Riverside country club.  Martin Allard was man of the match and B Flight winner with a splendid 41 points; this bettered the inform Donkey by a single shot who must have found a new supply of fresh carrots as he also collected a 2.  A count back was required to separate Michael Craven and the canny Irishman Tom Gorey, both locked on very steady 38 points – Michael got the bronze as Tom was left satang less.

Bob Stokes went one better than his performance on Monday as he led the ‘big boys’ home with a sold 40 points.  Bob was three clear of Irishman Conner Doyle who lifted the silver.  The calculator was out big time to sort out a four man pile up for the bronze, as Chris Barrett filled the flight with an even par round.  Fits Pocke, Pat Hanafin and Peter Ennis’s fine efforts were unrequited

Michael Craven and Paul Heyworth shared the 2’s pot with the Donkey.

Friday, Feb. 10, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

A Flight

1st Val Bredin (16) 37pts

2nd Peter Kelly (10) 35pts

3rd Bob Stokes (11) 34pts

B Flight

1st David Dunne (20) 36pts

2nd Les Greentree (18) 36pts

3rd Sean Soden (23) 33pts

Val Bredin found himself a little short of cash on Friday morning and was torn between visiting the ATM or playing a little golf.  The line was so long at the ATM he decided to join us for a great day on the challenging Mountain Shadow and came away first in A Flight and also man of the match with 37 points, plus he was the only player to better par.

Irishman Peter Kelly on 35 points and the title guy Scotsman Bob Stokes filled the minor places.

B Flight saw a real tussle as David Dunne and Les Greentree were all square with even par rounds – the count back verdict going to David by the narrowest of margins 22-21.  Sean Soden closed the flight on 33 points.

Six 2’s were recorded.
