Englishman Tim Shaw, who lives in Australia, started out a fine week with the biggest prize of the month – the cut glass whiskey goblet and a bottle of Jameson’s Irish whiskey emblematic of the Monthly Medal.  Tim also gets an invite for the gold medal at the end of the year and gets his name etched onto the Lewiinski’s wall of shame.

Tim’s net 66 was three clear of C Flight mate Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw as Tim’s better half Kim filled the flight on net 72.

The senior flight was again led by Adam ‘Dick’ Barton with a rock solid net 68.  Barry ‘the boot’ Copestake followed Adam up the podium steps with a steady net 71 as Dave Stockman rounded out the flight with an even par return.

B Flight was the domain of Vic ‘the infector’ Hester with a solid net 69.  Best mates Freddy ‘the quite one’ Starbeck and Colin ‘the donkey’ Davis took second and third places with non-threatening net 76 and net 77s respectively.

Adam Barton, JJ Harney and Freddy Starbeck shared a very healthy 2’s pot.

Monday, Nov. 10, Royal Lakeside – Stableford

1st John Pierrel (13) 44pts

2nd Thierry Petrement (12) 39pts

3rd Matt Doyle (14) 37pts

John Pierrel was man of the match and top in A Flight as he put in his best competitive effort in some time to lap the field with an excellent 44 points!  Always improving Thierry Petrement made his solid 39 points stand up for the second spot.  It was good to see Matt Doyle climbing the podium steps as he returned to form, not that anyone doubted he would even though his count back win was over gang mate Andy Byrne.

John Pierrel was the sole heir to the 2’s pot.

Tuesday, Nov. 11, Burapha – Stableford

A Flight

1st Reg McKay (13) 40pts

C Flight

1st Tim Shaw (31) 40pts

2nd Jim Elphick (25) 34pts

3rd Lou Szigligeti (22) 34pts

There was a large turnout for today’s competition which required the formation of three divisions.  The first of these was led by Scotland’s Reg ‘Buckie boy’ McKay with a co-man of the match 40 points and he was one of two players to reach that total on the day.  Reg was one clear of A Flight mate Peter Larson with his splendid 39 points and a further stroke clear of Freddy Starbeck on 38.

B Flight was headed by Sir William Peach with a very creditable 37 points.  William edged Aiden Murray and Mike ‘the Welsh dragon’ Jeffreys who both finished on even par rounds, with the latter falling to the bronze spot on the resulting count back over the back-nine holes.

The man in the bold print, Tim Shaw, made it two wins in as many comps as he headed the minor flight with a co-man of the match 40 points.  Tim was six clear of Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick and Aussie Lou ‘walkabout’ Zig zag; Jim nicked the silver while Lou was sorting out his handicap.

Max Scott, Richard Snellen and Trevor Gough shared the 2’s pot.

Wednesday, Nov. 12, Bangpra – Stableford

A Flight

1st Bill McGarvie (11) 41pts

2nd Petteri Aittola (9) 38pts

B Flight

1st Thierry Temime (23) 36pts

2nd Pat Adland (24) 34pts

The size of the field might have been impacted by our back-to-back playing days but the quality of the play was certainly not affected.  Bill McGarvie stole the show and top spot in A Flight with a sizzling 41 points and was three clear of second placed Petteri Aittola.

Thierry Temime, no stranger to the pay desk, filled the top spot in B Flight with a solid even par round.  Pat Adland, a friend of the Donkey, showed he was learning from the master as he took the silver with 34 points.

No 2’s were recorded so it is a rollover on Thursday.

Thursday, Nov. 13, Khao Kheow – Stableford

A Flight

1st Petteri Aittola (9) 42pts

2nd Tim Shaw (31) 37pts

3rd Jim Proctor (18) 37pts

4th Eddie Henshaw (26) 35pts

Hardly a more daunting venue could have been chosen for the society than the Dye designed Khao Kheow.  Petteri Aittola, playing off his nine handicap, bettered Wednesday’s second place finish as he showed he was up to the challenge by garnering a magnificent 42 points and first place in A Flight.  Ireland’s Matt Cronin filled the second spot with a very creditable 37 points.  Thierry Petrement shot a steady 37 points but was relegated to fourth place on a count back by the on form John Pierrel.

The story in B Flight was the ever-improving Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick and his excellent 41 points.  Jim was four clear of the title boy Tim Shaw and Jim Proctor, and the resulting count back handed Tim the silver to go with his two gold finishes.  Eddie Henshaw tided up the flight with a steady 35 points.

Petteri Aittola, Such Janatana, Jim Proctor and Geoffrey Williams shared the 2’ pot.

3rd Jim Reid (26) 34pts

Ireland’s Matt Doyle, everybody’s nice guy, dazzled most of the field and A Flight with a man of the match 41 points; the only two guys close to him were B Flight winner Gerry Cooney and C Flight top man Martin Allard who were but a stroke adrift.  JJ Harney followed Matt up the podium steps with a steady even par round while JP Gasser was pleased to close the flight with his 33 points.

Aussie Lou ‘walkabout’ Zig zag chased Gerry home in B Flight with a solid 38 points as he edged the Donkey by a single stroke.
