Everybody has heard the saying ‘drive for show put for dough’, this is what Jimmy Elphick told Eddy Bielby as he edged Eddy for the B Flight top podium spot.  Jimmy never had a three-putt all day even though he had two wipes on his card.  Peter ‘the black stuff’ Henshaw rounded out the flight with a steady even par round.

In the senior flight, co-man of the match Freddy ‘the quite one’ must have thought his chances of winning were gone as he had only one point from his opening two holes.  He managed to rally though and finished two clear of Nick ‘Elvis’ Shaw’s even par round.  Big Kevin Hamilton closed the flight with a steady 34 points.

Monday, Sept. 28, Khao Kheow – Stableford

1st Kevin Rogers (13) 43pts

2nd Ian Pickles (17) 38pts

3rd Jim Elphick (25) 34pts

4th Peter Henshaw (23) 30pts

A quality course always attracts a quality golf field and today was such a day as the Lewiinski’s golf society departed for the to the beautiful Khao Kheow Golf Club.  The course was, as always, in excellent condition with the greens running fast and true so the field faced a very stiff challenge.

Aussie star Kevin Rogers was again to be found at the head of the field as he continues to benefit from hours of practice in recent weeks.  This time the competition was a little stiffer but his magnificent man of the match 43 points was just too much for the lads to handle.

Ian Pickles must have thought that he might have done enough to win with his fine 38 points, and on most days he would have, he just picked the wrong day.

Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick followed Sunday’s co-man of the match performance to take the bronze with his 34-point return.  Pay window regular Peter ‘from the black stuff’ Henshaw was very pleased to close the four man podium with his 30 points.

Wednesday, Sept. 30, Burapha A & B – Stableford

1st Freddy Starbeck (12) 45pts

2nd Jim Elphick (25) 42pts

3rd Per-olov Lindmark (26) 35pts

4th Bernard Green (27) 35pts

A fair sized field for the time of the year made the trip to Burapha, which was found to be in excellent condition.

Freddy ‘the quite one’ Starbeck found something to shout about as he threw a magical man of the match 45 points at the field for his second victory of the week.  The in-form Jimmy Elphick pushed Freddy all the way with a sparkling 42 of his own for his third pay window visit of the week.

Per-Olov Lindmark and Bernard Green fought it out on count back for the minor flight places, both with 35 points but Per-Olov’s back nine was more favourably dispersed than Bernard’s.

Friday, Oct. 2, Greenwood B & C – Stableford

1st Ken Hole (16) 37pts

2nd Jim Elphick (25) 36pts

3rd Per-Olov Lindmark (26) 35pts

4th Mike Allidi (3) 35pts

Arriving at Greenwood we were quickly onto the first tee to be told the task at hand was the B and C nines.  We were soon on our way under dark skies accompanied with a stiff breeze.  The course was in fine condition with slick greens and firm fairways.

Ken Hole mastered the conditions best as he led the boys in with a man of the match 37 points.  Ken was also the only player to better his handicap.  Jimmy Elphick finished the week in fine style as his even par effort earned him the second step on the podium for his fourth pay window visit of the week.

A cont back was required to separate Per-Olov Lindmark and Mike Allidi, both knotted on 35 points and when the knot was undone it was Per-Olov who emerged with the bronze.
