PSC golf from Lewiinski’s Golf Society

Sunday, August 12, Green Valley – Monthly Medal

A Flight

1st Bob Newell (6) net 67

2nd Joe Mooneyham (14) net 70

B Flight

1st John O’Keefe (16) net 73

2nd Barry Copstake (18) net 74

Red Flight

1st Mike Craighead net 77 

Near Pins:  No 4 Bob Newell; No 9 Paul Bray; 12 Peter Henshaw; No 16 Ed Wyckoff

‘Broad more’ Bob Newell, whom this column has cited as a nice guy several times previously, won A Flight at Green Valley, but more importantly he took home a lead crystal engraved whisky glass and a bottle of Jameson Irish whisky, emblematic of the monthly medal (another for team GB) which in this case was for the month of August.  To do so Bob had to shoot a dazzling net 67 which was three clear of Joe ‘I’m in the’ Mooneyham, who is always a welcome addition to the society.

In B Flight John O’Keefe stroked his way to an impressive net 73 that put him one clear of Barry ‘the boot’ Copestake.

The Red Flight was won for the umpteenth time by Mike ‘the Mechanic’ Craighead who picked up a lead crystal champagne flute and another non-transferable invite to join Bob in the year-end Gold Medal.

Paul Bray sunk the only 2 of the day.

Monday, August 13, Khao Kheow A&B – Stableford

1st Rod Brown (18) 38pts

2nd Salvatore Brizzi (7) 33pts

When Rod was advised that his winnings account was depleted he did the only rational thing, he went out and won, thereby replenishing it.  In doing so Rod saved the day from being a non-counting round as he cleared the field by five clear points, which just left Aussie Salvatore ‘you know who’ to tidy  up the flight.

No one claimed a 2 so it’s was a rollover on Wednesday.

Wednesday, August 15, Burapha A&B – Stableford

A Flight

1st Pierre Bietry (14) 37pts

2nd John Baxter (15) 37pts

B Flight

1st Barry Copestake (18) 40pts

2nd Jim Elphick (23) 36pts

Pierre ‘the magician’ Bietry used to visit Lewiinski’s from his native Little Hole Bar just when he was short of cash, but lately he has found the feeding so good he has found it difficult to leave.  It didn’t come easy though as count back was required to edge the red hot John Baxter for the top rung in the premier flight.

But it was B Flight that provided the man of the match when Barry ‘the boot’ Copstake cruised round the course with a splendid 40 point haul.  Considering Barry has recently had surgery to replace a dodgy ankle, coupled with his double knee and hip replacement, this is a remarkable feat.

Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick just quietly keeps sliding onto the podium when no one is looking as he took the second spot today.

Jimmy Day, Mike Jeffreys and Kevin Krazy shared the rollover 2’s pot
