Once again another fair turnout for our Green Valley Sunday bash but not quite enough for three flights.  The course was playing extremely well while the weather was hot and humid.

John Dearden added another string to his bow with an excellent man of the match and B flight wining 42 points.  John was six strokes clear of the inform Peter Terry, leaving Co. Dublin’s Pat Regan to close the flight.

A Flight was led by Gentry Harrington with a sparkling 41 points while Brian Scott was two shots off the pace in second.  Two players were tied on 37 points, Mickey Beresford and Peter ‘the right honorable’ LeNoury, and when the divots had settled it was Mickey’s more favorable back-nine that held sway leaving Peter to tidy up the flight.

Franjo Blazevic was the sole heir to the 2’s pot.

Tuesday, Feb. 20, Green Valley – Stableford

1st Pat Regan (18) 38pts

2nd William Peach (18) 37pts

16 players made the trip Tuesday to play in our mid-week bash and once again the course was in fine condition and the weather warm, but we did have two very heavy showers.  Two flights were required with four podium steps in A Flight and three in B Flight.

B Flight provided the man of the match as the man on fire John Dearden returned another forty plus points to make it two wins on the trot.  John was five strokes clear of second placed Tim Knight while Jorn Finnerup was as surprised as anyone that his 27 points gave him the flight bronze.

Co. Dublin’s Pat Regan led the boys in A flight with a fine 38 points for his second pay window visit this week.  William Peach and Mashi Kaneta were knotted on 37 points and when the divots had settled it was William who managed to edge Mashi on the back-nine.  Jimmy ‘AK-47’ Bell was left to close the flight with 32 points.
