The man of the match was none other than Freddy Starbeck who out-counted a host of 42 point returns.  Aussie star Bob Watson and Dave Stockman, both with 42 points, filled the A Flight podium with Bob lifting the silver and Dave the bronze.  Freddy also had a hole-in-one on the fifth hole par 3 and just for good measure a near pin.

B Flight was not to be outdone as Claude Harder and Ireland’s Jorn Finnerup battled it out for the top spot, both incredibly with 42 points each but with Claude having the better inward nine.  The superb performance of the field was reflected in the fact that Phil Davies, Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw and Don ‘the ladies man’ Lehmer went to a count back for the third spot, all with 37 points, as Phil edged the other two in the count back.

Spare a thought for David Anderpauch who had 40 points and would have filled the B Flight bronze spot if he had been a member.  But he did get a near pin which he was allowed to keep.

Back at Lewiinski’s, Freddy gave a bell ring to celebrate his hole-in-one.

Tuesday, Oct. 21, Greenwood – Stableford

A Flight

1st Peter Larsson (12) 36pts

2nd Tom Gorey (12) 35pts

B Flight

1st Mike Jeffreys (17) 38pts

2nd Bruce Walters (26) 30pts

Many of our regular players will remember Greenwood by its old name Noble Place.  Even with its new name it still plays the same, which is to say it is one of the top courses on the schedule and with a very competitive price it remains a firm favourite with the players no matter that the travel time is a little longer than some of the other courses.

Once again it was in first class condition today with the greens being flat and fast and with the fairways looking and playing superbly.

B Flight’s Mike ‘the Welsh dragon’ Jeffreys was the only player to better his handicap on the day to take the man of the match honours.  Mike’s 38 points was eight clear of a trio of players and the resulting count back handed the silver to Aussie starlet Bruce Walters, leaving no podium steps for Aiden Murray and Peter Moon.

A Flight was the domain of Peter Larson with a solid even par round; Peter was a stroke clear of Tom ‘the Irish rover’ Gorey.

No 2’s were recorded so a rollover to Friday.

Friday, Oct. 24, Mt. Shadow – Stableford

A Flight

1st Tom Gorey (12) 37pts

2nd Per Forsberg (15) 36pts

3rd Thierry Petrement (12) 35pts

B Flight

2nd Lou Szigligeti (22) 34pts

3rd Marcus Earp (35) 33pts

Irishmen Tom Gorey and Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw were the stars of the day as they both topped their respective flights.  Peter was the man of the match and top in B Flight with a sparkling 38 points.  Aussie Lou Zigzag followed Peter up the podium steps on 34 points and Marcus Earp had the better of the mathematics as he outgunned Aiden Murray for the third podium step.

Tom sat atop the A Flight podium with a sound 37 points,  Per Forsberg and the man in the bold print Freddy Starbeck were strung out in one shot increments and in that order.

Tom Gorey, Thierry Petrement, Paul Smith and Bob Watson shared the rollover 2’s pot.
