If not the round of the day, certainly the shot of the day belonged to Co. Wicklow’s Garry Green who canned a dodo on the ninth hole of this week’s configuration of Green Valley.  This adds to Gary’s three other aces he has accumulated in his short career.

The senior flight was ruled by the Irish.  Now you could not fault the card of the Co Offaly’s gang leader Kevin Mcentee, but it was not as favorably distributed as that of Co. Wicklow’s young man – Liam Guinness.  So, even though Kevin negotiated the front nine one under par off the stick, the count-back rules deemed him second best on the day.

It seems the Wicklow mob have ganged up on Kevin as another Co. Wicklow man, Andy Byrne, took the bronze one shot adrift.  I think they call it a Wicklow sandwich.

Seamus the captain, Ed Wyckoff, and the hole in one expert from Co. Wicklow were all lurking a shot back.

There was plenty of action in the junior flight as well, as Bill Peach ‘esquire’ put together a very creditable 40 points for the day’s top card and man of the match honours.  Don Lehmer and Peter ‘Don Corleone’ Henshaw both came up three shots short of Bill, with Don securing the count-back decision.

Please spare a thought for Geoff Doody who carded the day’s only ‘2’ but did not win a bean as Garry’s hole in one cleaned up.

Back at the ranch it was party time as the Paddy’s celebrated their good fortune with Bill Peach.  Pity Bill did not hang around a little longer as his name was pulled out of the barrel, and he would have won the free draw of 7,300 baht.  Don’t forget you have to be in the bar to win it.

Monday, Nov. 1, Treasure Hill – Stableford

A Flight

1st Tore Eliassen (15) 39pts

2nd Kevin McNtee (7) 37pts

B Flight

1st Gerry Hughes (21) 35pts

2nd Nok Hester (21) 34pts

Tore Eliassen, was man-of-the-match in the senior flight as he put in his best competitive effort in some time to destroy the field with 39 points.  I am not going to even mention who took the silver, and there are no prizes for guessing.  Suffice to say this was his third pay desk visit in as many games.

Irishman Gerry Hughes made himself right at home by being the best in the junior flight with an impressive one under par round.  Nok, the better looking half of the Hester household, came up a shot short for second.

Sunday’s hero, young Liam McGuiness, and Mike Holmes split the ‘2’s pot.

Wednesday, Nov. 3, Bangpra – Stableford

A Flight

1st Yui Bietry (12) 41pts

2nd Terry Mangan (12) 36pts

3rd Jim Brackett (8) 36pts

B Flight

1st Liam McGuinness (13) 38pts

2nd Pierre Bietry (16) 36pts

3rd Chop Daprakhon (14) 35pts

C Flight

1st Bill Peach (22) 36pts

2nd Jean Claude Coulon (31) 36pts

3rd Christy Knight (19) 36pts

A great turnout warranted nine podium places in three divisions.  There was no man of the match this day, but it was not due to the lack of performance – it was because the best player was a lady!  Yui Bietry.  Yui’s 41 points took the match and A Flight, whilst Ireland’s Terry Mangan and Arizona’s Big Jim Brackett both posted even par rounds.

Sunday’s hero Liam McGuinness got back to winning ways in B Flight with a solid 38 points.  Pierre ‘The Magician’ of the Bietry household was two shots adrift, with Chop Daprakhon a shot further back to fill the flight.

C Flight saw a three-way count-back as Bill Peach made up for his Sunday free draw disappointment with a win.  Jean Claude Coulon took second with Christy ‘Good’ Knight closing the flight.
