Chaten ‘the Rajah’ Patel rules


PSC golf from Lewiinski’s Golf Society

Sunday, June 24, St. Andrews – Stableford

1st Chaten Patel (13) 39pts

2nd Colin Davis (16) 37pts

With the majority of the society’s core members away to the UK or the States, or Bintan, or touring the country or like ‘Broad moor’ Bob the ex prison officer trying to find his lost keys, a modest but quality field took on the Desmond Muirhead St. Andrews, and a couple of familiar names, namely Chaten ‘the Rajah’ Patel and Colin ‘the Donkey’ Davis (with his eternal 16 handicap) used their course knowledge to navigate to first and second place respectively.

The ‘Rajah’ also knocked in the only 2 of the day.

Monday, June 25, Bangpakong – Stableford

1st Rod Brown (22) 37pts

2nd Darryl Evans (18) 37pts

A relatively modest group attributable to the season and back to back playing days turned out to play the formidable Bangpakong Riverside.  The scores on the day reflected the difficulty of the course for most; this did not however deter Rod Brown and Darryl Evans who both bettered their handicaps by a single stroke.  A count back dictated that they finished in that order.

Two time winner Chaten Patel, left, with Noy. Two time winner Chaten Patel, left, with Noy.

No 2’s were carded so the rollover continues.

Wednesday, June 27, Bangpra – Stableford

1st Eddy Beilby (16) 34pts

2nd Don Lehmer (20) 32pts

3rd Ian Ashendon (0) 32pts

A good sized field for any season turned out to try their luck on the fast and slick greens on the par 72 Bangpra layout.  The scores on the day reflected the difficulty that faced the competitors as anything above the hole on the green was to say the least nerve racking.

Eddy ‘the Eagle’, never one to shy away from a challenge, led the field home through the marauding monkeys with a top score of the day 34 points.  Eddy was followed up the podium steps By Don “I’m getting married in the morning” Lehmer and professional golfer Ian ‘keep your head down’ Ashendon who is always a welcome addition to the society ranks.  Although Don and Ian standing on the podium looked about the same height, handicap dictated that it was Don who managed the silver.

Ian and fellow scratch player Mark Haffendon split the rollover 2’s pot.  I guess the greens speak for themselves!

Friday, June 29, Khao Kheow A & C – Stableford

A Flight

1st Chaten Patel (13) 35pts

2nd Connie Walsh (9) 35pts

B Flight

1st Barbara Cooper (26) 36pts

2nd Nick Odnoral (18) 34pts

There was no man of the match today because the best player was a lady, Barbara Cooper.  Barbara’s 36 points took the B Flight honours as Nick Odnoral picked up the silver on 34 points.

Chaten the ‘Rajah’ Patel finished the week as he started standing atop the A Flight podium as he cemented his name in the bold print, but he did need the aid of a count back decision to edge Irishman Connie Walsh as both were tied on 35 points.

Mark ‘woody’ Sherwood (a brace) and Paul Hack shared the 2’s pot.
