We all know March 17 is St Patrick’s Day, so the organization committee decided it would be a nice gesture to play Sunday’s St. Pat’s bash at St. Andrews.  This suited Danny Lawson, Tony Gliddon and Freddy Starbeck down to the ground as they were all co-men of the match with an excellent 40 points apiece.

Freddy’s C Flight winning score was four clear of Irishman Gerry Roche and Blackpool’s John Warren as they tied for the flight silver, with Gerry prevailing on the count back, as did Jean LaRoche over the unlucky Merle Humphreys, both on 35 points.

B Flight provided two co-men of the match as Danny Lawson edged Tony Gliddon via the count back to take the top spot.  Terry ‘Pork chop’ Mangan did the same to Michael Goggin as they filled the two remaining podium places.

A bunch of five of the more accomplished lot vied for the top spot as they all returned solid even par rounds.  When the divots had settled, Aussie ace Bob Watson emerged from the pile-up on the top of the podium followed by Blackpool’s Steve Mulberry in second, Thierry Petrement third, and Kevin ‘the hermit’ McEntee in fourth spot.  There was no podium step for Peter ‘the right honorable’ LeNoury.

Kevin McEntee, Max Scott, John Beshoff, Gerry Roche, Mick Beresford and Bruce Walters shared an excellent ‘2’s pot.

Back at the ranch it really was party time coupled with an excellent buffet and the guest appearance of Christy ‘Detective Thomson of TinTin fame’ Knight.

Monday, March 18, Crystal Bay A&B – Stableford

A Flight

1st Peter Hynard (13) 37pts

2nd Kevin McEntee (7) 35pts

B Flight

1st Freddy Starbeck (20) 42pts

2nd Colin Davis (16) 33pts

While Sunday night’s St. Patrick’s Day party was unbelievable, it did serve to dent the golfing ardor of the society come Monday morning.  A small field took on the always demanding layout at Crystal Bay and found it to be in as fine a condition as can be remembered.

Those that did manage to turn out were treated to another Freddy Star spectacular but this was not very comical as Freddy Starbeck followed Sunday’s co-man of the match 40 points with a tremendous 42 points for man of the match and top spot in B Flight.  (Unnamed sources have indicated that Freddy has been having a few lessons with Pattaya’s top teaching pro Mike McClarren).  A distant nine holes in arrears was ‘the Donkey’, no doubt suffering from a touch of the Gaelic.

In a return to more traditional levels of performance in the senior circuit the two top places went to two old work horses, Peter ‘The Right Honorable’ Hynard 37 points and yawn Kevin some body or other on 35 points.

Freddy ended the show with a ‘2’, along with Pen Caruthers.

Wednesday, March 20, Silky Oak – Stableford

A Flight

1st Pen Caruthers (12) 40pts

2nd Matt Doyle (12) 37pts

3rd Thierry Petrement (11) 36pts

B Flight

1st Andre Fortis (19) 37pts

2nd Freddy Starbeck (20) 36pts

3rd Merle Humphreys (19) 33pts

Pen Caruthers was man of the match with his outstanding 40 point effort, good enough to provide him a three point cushion over Co. Offaly Bandit Matt ‘Dillon’ Doyle.  Matt did card a 2 to ease the pain.  Every body’s favourite, Monsieur Thierry Petrement rounded out the flight with a steady even par round.

Top man in B Flight was Andre Fortis with a very creditable 37 points.  Freddy ‘Star’ Beck foreshadowed a week on form with his third pay window visit this week.  Freddy has been offered a one way ticket to a destination of his choice by the society regulars.  Bulls eye Merle Humphreys closed the flight on 33 points.

Terry Mangan, Colin Davis, and Arthur Busch shared the ‘2’s pot with Matt.
