When you read the title you probably back tracked to see if you had started reading a true crime novel, and some people might think that when they have finished. The scribe, ever in search of the eye catching title, chose to highlight the performance of two society members who have chosen to apply their trade in the Irish Garda.
Gerry Hughes (left) and Kevin Mcentee.
The junior flight provided the man of the match in Ireland’s very own Gerry (C.I.D.) Hughes, as evidenced by his 44 point lashing on the field. Gerry’s score overshadowed the fine effort of fellow Irishman Peter Wallace with 42 points, who has quickly recovered from having an angiogram removed from his leg at the local hospital. Brian ‘Mini’ Cooper filled the flight a further shot back to end this stay with his taxi fair to the airport paid for.
It should not be overlooked in a vain effort to support the above title that Irishman Kevin (detective inspector) Mcentee filled the bronze spot in the senior flight. Barry ‘the boot’ Copestake emerged from a quiet spell to win the sliver on 38 points, as Scotland’s favorite son Mark Wood stood atop the flight with a solid 39 point return.
Barry Copestake, Broadmore Bob, Billy Briton, Reg McKay and Liam McGuinness shared the 2’s pot.
Monday, November 28, Royal Lakeside – Stabelford
1st Conner Doyle (13) 38pts
2nd Kevin Mcentee (8) 37pts
1st Liam McGuinness (16) 41pts
2nd Colm Mullen (16) 34pts
The scribe had one of is his greatest dreams come true as two of Lewiinski’s most popular players made the podium. Ireland’s Liam McGuinness, whose 41 points was good for man of the match and top spot in B Flight, was followed up the podium steps (at last) by good friend and Fellow Irishman Colum Mullen on 34 points. Mind you, it needed the aid of a count back verdict over the unlucky Jon White.
The Irish contingent continued their assault on the podium in the flagship flight as Conner Doyle stood atop with 38 solid points, with ‘you know who’ from Co. Offaly filling out the flight to make it an Irish rout.
Peter Hedenburgh, whose great, great, great uncle visited Ireland in 1672, carded the only ‘2’ of the day.
Wednesday, November 30, Bangpra – Stableford
1st Kevin Mcentee (8) 37pts
2nd Patrick Kelly (+2) 35pts
3rd Reg McKay (14) 34pts
1st Eddy Beilby (16) 42pts
2nd Colum Mullen (16) 37pts
3rd Maurice Swish (17) 35pts
This midweek stint belonged to Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby as he put a 42 point lashing on the gang. Eddy was five shots clear of Colm (can I play in B Flight please) Mullen, and a further two ahead of Maurice Swish, of whom I can only guess his nationality.
In the senior flight it was the never ending story as ‘guess who’ topped the flight with 38 points? (I will have to stop being rude to Kevin, he is just playing to good). Kevin’s haul was two shots clear of Patrick ‘plus 2 handicapper’ Kelly and yet another in front of ‘Buckie’ boy Reg McKay. Alas for Patrick’s father, Peter, his acumen on the course did not translate to the score card, as Reg had the better of the count back.
J-P Maffrey and Terry ‘red card’ Mangan split the 2’s pot.
Friday, December 2, Mountain Shadow – Stableford
1st Patrick Kelly (+2) 37pts
2nd Reg McKay (14) 33pts
3rd Peter Kelly (8) 33pts
1st Jim Elphick (25) 36pts
2nd Lew Szigligeti (19) 35pts
3rd Merle Humphreys (19) 33pts
It was off to the always intriguing Mountain Shadow for the final game of the week for the lads and lasses.
Plus two handicapper Patrick Kelly must have got it right as he stood alone as the only player to better his handicap on the day. Patrick’s 37 points was good for the man of the match and senior flight honours. Scotland’s very own Buckie boot boy Reg McKay split the Kelly father and son partnership as his back side score bettered Peter’s in the resulting count back.
Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick was top dog in the junior flight with a rock solid even par round. Jimmy’s total was one stroke better than Lew ‘the thunder from down under’ Szigligeti while Merle Humphreys on 33 points was left to tidy up the flight.
Patrick Kelly, Terry Mangan, J-P Gasser and Colm Mullen shared the 2’s pot.
