The column has emphasized before that Green Valley is set up on Sunday to be knocked off, and nobody knocked it off better than Barry ‘the boot’ Copestake and his net 66.  This was Barry’s first medal victory in around twelve years of trying.  Barry’s fine performance also gave him man of the match and the senior flight top spot, plus a cut glass whiskey tumbler and a bottle of Jameson’s Irish whiskey rounded out with automatic entry to play in the gold Medal later on in the year, but most importantly Barry’s name to be etched on Lewiinski’s wall of shame.

Barry’s Stella performance was 4 shots clear of society regular Ian ‘lose change’ Halfpenny.

The junior flight saw Essen Bristoferson come out on top with a net 70.  I have heard on the grape vine that Essen has been taking advice from the Donkey to sort out his iron play, and it seems to have worked.

Essen was followed very closely up the podium steps by Barry ‘the boot’s’ playing partner Mike Shoesbry (sorry I could not stop myself) a shot adrift.  Amazingly three of the four podium places were filled by players in the same four-ball; Barry, Mike and Ian.  I haven’t a clue who the other one is.

Sim Jenny Davis took the top spot in the ladies flight with a net74.  She also gets an invitation to play along with Barry in the year end Gold Medal.

Back at Lewiinski’s and after the presentation it was snowball time, and it was the man of the match Barry the boot that walked off with the money, but to his credit Barry treated the lads to a round of Lewiinski’s best.

Tuesday, October 11, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

A Flight

1st Jan Eriksen (14) 37pts

2nd Fergus Obrien (6) 34pts

B Flight

1st Peter Henshaw (15) 35pts

2nd Fergus Obrien (28) 32pts

It is always a great day, albeit a tough one when the gang takes on the formidable Mountain Shadow.  However don’t tell that to Jan the quite one Eriksen and his 37 points.  Jan was the only player to better par on the day for the senior flight and man of the match honors.  Jan was followed a fair way back up the podium steps by Francis Goyons who finished three shots in arrears for the silver.

The junior flight was an all Irish affair as Peter ‘Don O’corleone’ Henshaw returned to winning ways with a solid 35 points.  Fellow Irishman Fergus O’Brien was looking up at Peter on the podium steps as his three shots adrift return gave him the silver.

The Donkey, never far away from the money, had the biggest smile as he slotted home the only ‘2’ of the day.

Wednesday, October 12, Pattana – Stableford

1st Derek Walsh (9) 37pts

2nd Nick Odnoral (17) 35pts

3rd Christy Knight (23) 35pts

Only Irishman Derek Walsh showed the right stuff as he returned to the level of play emblematic of his Stella(r) Pattaya career with a two better than the field.  Derek was also the only player to better par, not bad on Gussan’s always intriguing, sometimes diabolical Pattana lay out.

Aussi Nick Odnoral came out of a three-way count back to take the silver while Co. Dublin’s Christy ‘Good’ Knight with treachery unknown to the relatively innocent Thierry Petremont stole the bronze and relegated Thierry to a bar stool and left him satang less.

No 2’s were recorded so it’s a rollover next Monday.
