Mark Wood started the day with glee as he noted that he had made it to8.5, hence 9 on the latest handicap sheet.  Well ironies of ironies, Mark did need that extra to head the A Flight, as he edged ‘Broad more’ Bob and Ken Aihara by a single stroke.  Bob did win the count back although Bob had made a handicap move in the other direction 7 to 6, which if left alone, would have given Bob the Monthly Medal.  “How’s your luck”?

B Flight provided the monthly Medal winner for June 2012 Claude Harder with a splendid net 66.  Claude was awarded the lead crystal glassware and a bottle of Jameson’s.  Claude was five strokes clear of good friend Pierre ‘the magician’ Bietry.

Medal winners Claude and Yui. Medal winners Claude and Yui.

Yui Bietry was the clear winner in the red flight with a net 68 plus two 2’s and a near pin.  As all our readers know, Yui joins Claude in the gold medal final to be played later in the year along with their names added to the Lewiinski’s wall of shame.

Bob Watson joined Yui with the days only other 2.

Monday, June 11, Khao Kheow A&B – Stableford

A Flight

1st Jim Bell (19) 35pts

2nd Steve Little (7) 33pts

B Flight

1st Mike Jeffreys (19) 36pts

2nd Joe Tynan (34) 32pts

The man of the match was none other than soon to be back to the UK, Mike ‘the Welsh wizard’ Jeffreys.  Mike showed all his mettle as he was the only player to play to par on the tricky Khao Kheow A and B configuration.

Joe sat nav Tynan goes from strength to strength as he edged Geoff Elvis Kubas on count back as both were locked on 31 points till Joe checked his card and noticed he had gone out a shot, but the prize helped with his expenses.

Jim Bell led the boys home in A Flight – hold on, Jim in A Flight?  Goodness me!  Jim was two shots clear of a bunch of players log jammed on 33 points; Steve Little, Terry ‘pork chop’, Scot Max and Tore Eliassen, and count back dictated that Steve joined Jim on the podium.

Steve also posted a 2 along with Bob Watson, Les Cobban and Geoff Kubas.

1st Terry Mangan (12) 40pts

2nd Phil Page (12) 39pts

B Flight

1st Colm Donavan (20) 33pts

2nd Joe Tynan (34) 32pts

B Flight had the bragging rights on Monday but A Flight won them today, and the man they sent to do it was Terry ‘pork chop’ Mangan who fired a flawless 40 points.  Terry needed every one of them as Phil Page was just one stroke behind as he closed the flight.

B Flight belonged to the Irish as Colm Donavan stood atop the podium on 33 points; Colm was one shot clear of Joe ‘sat nav’ Tynan as Joe made his second visit to the pay window this week.

Terry added a 2 to his man of the match honours along with Thierry Petrement.

No 2’s were claimed so it’s a rollover on Monday.
