2nd Lou Szigligeti (18) net 75
1st Mike Craighead net 71
Near Pins: No 4 Claude Harder; No 12 Pat Regan; No 16 Eddy Beilby
Claude Harder showed why he is the red hot favorite for the year-end gold Medal as he showed the field nothing but tail lights in his B Flight winning and best on the day net70. This was Claude’s third medal and Lewiinski’s lead crystal whiskey glass plus a bottle of Jameson’s Irish whisky win this year. Three society regulars were just a shot off the pace headed by ‘Broad more’, Dave Shelton and JJ Harney.
Lou the ‘traffic warden’ Zig-Zag bested Aussie mate Jim Nobel and Eddy ‘the Eagle’ in a three way count back to set the order in B Flight.
Scotland’s Mark Wood and Ireland’s young Pat Regan had the best score’s in the flagship flight with even par rounds. The man from Aberdeen took the count back and top spot.

In the Red Flight the race to Ban Chang seems to be all but over as Mike ‘the mechanic’ Craighead took the lead crystal flute and the Medal for the fifth time this year with a net 71. Both Claude and Mike gain an invite to play in the Gold Medal to be played later in the year.
Despite a quality field the par three ninth hole near pin was not claimed. Beside his fine Medal win Claude also picked up a near pin and split the 2’s pot with Captain Jimmy Day.
Tuesday, Sept. 11, Greenwood B+C – Stableford
1st Paul Hack (13) 39pts
2nd Pat Reagan (13) 36pts
1st Lou Szigligeti (18) 38pts
2nd Joe Tynan (30) 32pts
With determination akin to settlers heading out on the old Oregon Trail during the western expansion of the United States, Lewiinski’s golf society set out for Greenwood on the old ‘Ammunition Rd.’ a.k.a. Hwy 331. Although the road is much improved it is always a challenge but the group eventually arrived at Peter Thompson’s layout at the remotest edge of the Eastern Seaboard family of courses.
Aussies Paul Hack and Lou ‘the traffic warden’ Zig-Zag topped the A & B flights with 39 and 38 points respectively. Interestingly enough both second place flight holders were Irishmen: young Pat Regan followed Paul in the senior flight with a good even par round, as Joe ‘Sat-Nav’ Tynan followed Lou up the steps in B Flight six shots adrift.
No 2’s were recorded rollover Wednesday.
Wednesday, September 12 – St Andrews
1st John Piernol (13) 39pts
2nd Iain Usher (11) 36pts
1st Espen Kristoffersen (30) 39pts
2nd Mike Jeffreys (18) 34pts
It was John Piernol and Epsen Kristoffersen vying for man of the match: John’s solid 39 point haul was three clear in A Flight of Iain Usher. Espen’s just as solid 39 points was five clear of Mike ‘the Welsh Wizard’ Jeffreys as he was top dog in B Flight.
John Piernol split the rollover 2’s with Jimmy ‘No’ Bell.
Friday, Sept. 14, Mountain Shadow – Stableford
1st Jim Bell (17) 37pts
2nd Jan Eriksen (8) 31pts
1st Peter Henshaw (20) 36pts
2nd Joe Tynan (31) 34pts
A perennial society favourite Mountain Shadow was the site of Friday’s outing. The group found all was in order at this great layout but Peter ‘Don Corleone’ Henshaw was the only player to master the course that features the toughest quartet of par fives, with his 37 points topping the B Flight. Peter was followed across the line by good friend Joe ‘Sat-nav’ Tynan two strokes adrift to make the flight an all Irish affair.
In the premier flight, traveling undertaker Jimmy ‘No’ Bell showed he could play a sack of clubs as well, as his even par round held the day. Jim was six shots clear of Jan ‘the quite one’ Eriksen.
The Donkey was as happy as Larry with the only 2 of the day.
