Captain Pierre at the double


PSC golf from Lewiinski’s

Sunday, Dec. 26, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st Gareth Gill (9) 38pts

2nd Lindsay Semple (12) 37pts

3rd Ian Dallas (‘plus 2) 37pts

B Flight

1st Jum Karagit (17) 41pts

2nd Ian Halfpenny (14) 39pts

3rd Pierre Bietry (16) 37pts

Near Pins: No 4 Mike Craighead, No 9 Jum Karagit, No 12 Chris Wright, No16 Bob StAubin.

This week B Flight provided the day’s top score with Jum Karagit putting together a splendid 41 points for the day’s honours, and a new handicap from Santa.  Ian ‘Loose Change’ Halfpenny got back to the podium for the silver two shots adrift.  Pierre and Ed Junger both penciled the same score with Pierre getting the count-back verdict after Ed’s two no-scoring holes proved to be the deciding factor.

Lewiinski’s new golf captain, Pierre Bietry. Lewiinski’s new golf captain, Pierre Bietry.

A Flight was a casting directors delight with the gold leaving in the hands of Gareth ‘The Car Park Champion’ Gill.  Gareth used his length and driving accuracy to fashion a rock solid 38 points.  Devastated Aussie Lindsay Semple played a lot better than his cricket heroes with a great knock of 37 not out to gain a count-back verdict over the unlucky plus two player Patrick Kelly (no prizes as to where this young man ails from).

Patrick Kelly, Mike Craighead, Gareth gill and Dave boron divided the ‘2’s pot.

Back at the ranch Lewiinski’s welcomed new President Eddy Beilby as Peter stepped down, and also welcomed new Capitan Pierre Bietry.  Pierre has an almighty task to fill the outgoing Captain Cotter’s shoes but if anyone can we are sure Pierre will.  He got off on the right foot by ringing the bell.

Jimmy ‘The Ladies man’ Day was a very popular choice as vice Captain as he has a very creditable CV (Captain of the Co. Wiclows Boys Brigade as a lad).

Monday, Dec. 27, Greenwood – Stableford

A Flight

1st Phil Page (12) 35pts

2nd Colin Davis (14) 34pts

B Flight

1st John White (27) 35pts

2nd Geoff Kubas (20) 31pts

A relatively modest group – attributable to the season and back-to-back playing days – took on the favorite of many, Greenwood’s A and C layout.

Phil Page was top and co-man of the match with a steady 35 points.  The Donkey survived a count-back with Tore Eliassen to collect the silver.

Not to be out done the junior flight had their own 35 point haul and co-man of the match in John White; Geoff Elvis Kubas managed to reach no 2 in the charts and also collect a very handy ‘2’.

Wednesday, Dec. 29, Treasure Hill – Stableford

A Flight

1st Paul Young (12) 34pts

2nd Mike Shrosbree (14) 32pts

3rd Colin Davis (14) 31pts

B Flight

1st John Baxter (16) 35pts

2nd Geoff Kubas (20) 34pts

3rd Frank McNamara (17) 33pts

A good sized field trekked off to play Treasure Hill where no player managed to match their handicap.  John Baxter was the nearest with 35 points that was good for man of the match and B Flight top spot.  John edged Geoff Elvis Kubas by two shots and Ireland’s big Frank McNamara by three.

The A Flight competitors showed less acumen as the 34 points from Paul Young stood up for  first place, in quick succession.  Paul was followed home by Mike ‘the Isan Raider’ Shrosbree who was two shots back and the Donkey a further stroke behind.

Paul Young, Kevin Marshall, Ray Dorman, Tony Cotter and David Kelly shared the ‘2’s pot.

Friday, Dec. 31, The Emerald – Stableford

A Flight

1st Nok Somporn (14) 32pts

2nd Seamus Cotter (12) 32pts

3rd Mick Folan (15) 32pts

B Flight

1st John Baxter (16) 35pts

2nd Kurt Erick Pedersen (24) 33pts

3rd Peter Hedenburgh (18) 33pts

The final game of the year saw the lads at their favorite golf course – Emerald.  John Baxter duplicated Wednesday’s score of 35 points to take his second consecutive victory as again he was man of the match and tops in B Flight.  Amazingly 35 points has won the last three games played out of Lewiinski’s.  Out came the calculator to decide the minor places as three players posted 33 points; Kurt Erick Pedersen took second, Peter Hedenburgh lifted the bronze and David Kelly was the unlucky player.

The senior flight saw the calculator glowing as all three podium winners recorded 32 points.  Leading the gang home was Nok Somporn, followed by Seamus Cotter and Mick Folan.

Don Lehmer pocketed the only ‘2’ of the day.

Lewiinski’s wish all golfers everywhere a happy and prospers New Year.
