Henshaw at the double


Lewiinski’s Golf Society

Sunday, June 26, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st Yui Bietry (10) 39pts

2nd Colin Davis (15) 37pts

B Flight

1st Adam Oyston (18) 39pts

2nd Kathy Doody (17) 38pts

Near Pins: No 4 Bill Peach, No 9 Sim Davis, No 12 Terry Mangan, No 16 Yui Bietry.

It is well known that Green Valley is the tacit home of the society on Sundays and has been for over ten years, so how on earth was it that a four-ball managed to end up at Phoenix?  T. I. T.

Those that did manage to find the right venue found the course in excellent shape with conditions that suited both the lads and the ladies.

Sunday’s winners: Yui Bietry and Adam Oyston. Sunday’s winners: Yui Bietry and Adam Oyston.

A Flight was won by the ever consistent Yui Bietry with a co-woman of the match, carding an excellent 39 points.  Yui dragged the Donkey up the podium steps as he finished two shots adrift.  A special mention to Simon Spalding whose even par round was the card of the day considering he played of scratch!

In contrast Bob Newel’s card does not warrant any mention as it contained five no-scoring holes, and that is exactly what it is going to get, but to be fair his card did have a ‘2’ penciled in.

Adam Oyston, no stranger to the dizzy heights of the top of the podium, matched Yui’s card to top the junior flight, also posting 39 points.  Kathy Doody added a further bit of glamour to the prize giving as she finished one stroke back for the silver.

Yui Bietry, Terry Mangan, Adam Oyston and Bob Newell shared the 2’s pot.

Tuesday, June 28, Greenwood A & B – Stableford

1st Terry Mangan (11) 33pts

2nd Scott Bramley (22) 33pts

3rd Eddy Beilby (16) 33pts

It was a tough day for the society at five times British Open winner Peter Thompson’s designed Greenwood.  Three players top scored with 33 points, the resulting count-back deemed Terry ‘the silent assassin’ Mangan the winner, Scott Bramley gained the silver, leaving Eddy the Eagle to tidy up the flight.  Mind you, the lads were not complaining as the loot spends just as well.

The biggest grin of the day belonged to Eddy the Eagle as he had the only ‘2’.

Wednesday, June 29, Pattana – Stableford

A Flight

1st Colin Davis (15) 39pts

2nd Stuart Roche (16) 37pts

B Flight

1st Peter Henshaw (17) 36pts

2nd Eddie Delaney (28) 35pts

Colin the Donkey was at it again on Wednesday cajoling and ball dogging the field on the Pattana B+C layout, and that was the nicest thing he did to them all day as he came home with a match winning and A Flight top spot.  Stuart Roche filled the flight a couple of strokes back.

There was plenty of drama in the junior flight as the Irish duo of Peter ‘the red hot’ Henshaw faced up to his old mate Eddie Delany.  The last time these two played together if my memory serves me right it was last Friday and it was Eddie who stood atop the podium looking down on Peter.  Those who know Peter also know that this feat rarely happens twice and today was no exception as Peter extracted his revenge.

Co. Wiclow’s Jimmy ‘where’s me mate’ Day cheered up a little as his solo ‘2’ took the pot.

Friday, July 1, Treasure Hill – Stableford

White Flight

1st Adam Farrell (12) 37pts

2nd Keith McLachlan (24) 35pts

3rd Gordon Wallace (15) 34pts

Yellow Flight

1st Peter Henshaw (17) 35pts

2nd Eddy Beilby (18) 33pts

It was pick your tee day at Treasure Hill, and it was Adam Farrell who did the best work off the White tees as evidenced by his match winning 37 points.  Adam was also the only competitor to better his handicap.  Adam was two strokes clear of Keith McLachlan, and a further stroke clear of Gordon Wallace.  Former Treasure Hill caddie Sim ‘card’ Davis showed she is finding form and was just one shot of a podium place.

Peter ‘the red hot’ Henshaw made it two top podium finishes on the trot as he led a smaller group home off the more forgiving yellow tees.  Peter’s 35 points was two shots clear of a tandem of Eddy ‘the Eagle’ and Co. Wicklow’s Terry ‘the silent assassin’ you know who, with the scales tipping in the Eagle’s favour.

The Headline committee usually saves the headline for the Sunday knock but it was decided that Peter’s splendid double flight win was the highlight of the week and warranted a change.

The Donkey and the Eagle split the ‘2’s pot.
