PSC golf from Lewiinski’s Golf Society

Sunday, Sept. 29, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st Dave Driscoll (15) 40pts

2nd Freddy Starbeck (13) 39pts

3rd Barry Copestake (12) 38pts

B Flight

1st Jum Karagit (18) 40pts

3rd Colin Davis (17) 36pts

Near Pins:  No 4 Claude Harder, No 9 Dave Driscoll, No 12 Kevin Ed Wyckoff, No 16 Bob Newell.

The boys and girls gave notice that it could be a week of big scores right off the bat as the day’s honours were shared by A Flight’s big hitting Dave Driscoll and B Flight’s Lewiinski’s belle Jum Karagit.  Dave’s 40 points, which included a near pin and a ‘2’, edged the fine effort of Freddy Starbeck by a stroke.  Freddy in turn edged Barry ‘the boot ‘Copestake by the same digit.

The prestigious golfer of the month award went to the flamboyant Freddy Starbeck.

JP Maffray, Jim Bell, Ed Wyckoff and Jum Karagit shared the 2’s pot with Dave.

Tuesday, Oct. 1, Greenwood A & C – Stableford

1st Eddy Beilby (19) 40pts

2nd Colin Sansom (11) 39pts

A relatively modest group, attributed to the season and the inclement weather of late, took on the Wooldridge and Thompson designed Greenwood.

Eddy the Eagle Beilby had a sparkling round of 40 points that gave him the man of the match honours and this was also his second pay window trip in as many games.  A count back decided the silver spot and dictated the order of ascent which favored Colin Sansom’s 39 points to that of Ireland’s Terry ‘pork chop’ Mangan.

Peter Henshaw lifted the 2’s pot.

Wednesday, Oct. 2, Pattana – Stableford

A Flight

1st Freddy Starbeck (13) 39pts

2nd Jean LaRouche (15) 38pts

3rd Les Cobban (10) 37pts

B Flight

1st Peter Henshaw (17) 35pts

2nd Jimmy Day (17) 34pts

3rd Colin Davis (17) 32pts

I’m not even going to mention it this time, but the clean-up guy struck again.  Freddy Starbeck drew the short straw and then left nothing to chance as he shot a best of the day 39 points.  Three golfers who had every reason to be optimistic of their chances in A Flight were Jean LaRouche on 38 points, and Les Cobban and Colin Sansom both a shot back.  Unfortunately there were only three podium spots and Colin was on the wrong end of the count back so received nothing for all his hard work.

The action in B Flight was only reasonably sublime as all the flight places were filled with players who did not better their handicaps.  The Irish pair did the best with Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw and good pal Jimmy ‘good’ Day returning 35 and 34 point cards in that order.  The ‘Hee Haw’ man slid onto the podium with a very modest but just as spendable 32 points (he did however point out that the one hour delay due to the heavy rain was the main reason for his low total)

Nick Lewthaite, Colin Davis and JP Maffray shared the 2’s pot.

Friday, Oct. 4, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

A Flight

1st Pierre Bietry (16) 35pts

2nd Thierry Petrement (13) 33pts

B Flight

1st Jim Elphick (27) 39pts

2nd Eddy Beilby (19) 38pts

Wily Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick and Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby were the only two players to solve the Mountain Shadow riddle on this day as both bettered their handicaps.  Jim was man of the match with a fine 39 points as Eddy closed B Flight a shot adrift.

The flagship flight was a bit at half mast as Pierre Bietry was top man on 35 points.  Thierry Petrement, returning to the society from wherever he goes, made a quick visit to the pay window as he closed the flight with 33 points.

Ed Wyckoff, Freddy Starbeck and Gerry Roche divvied up the 2’ pot.
