Every time this scribe picks up the score cards for Sunday’s comp he checks quickly to see how his friends ‘Broad more’ Bob and Christy ‘good’ Knight did.  They didn’t disappoint as ‘Broad more’ was top of the senior flight and man of the match with a very creditable 39 points.

Sunday’s winners - Bob Newell, left, and Christy Knight. Sunday’s winners – Bob Newell, left, and Christy Knight.

Bob put this fine win down to his newly acquired belly putter.  Last week in an exclusive interview with this scribe, he stated that they should be banned – hence the moniker!  Yui Bietry took the flight silver with a solid even par round.

Co. Dublin’s favourite son, Christy ‘good’ Knight took the B Flight top place as he carded a very useful 37 points.  Don ‘the ladies man’ Lehmer edged Jimmy ‘no Bell’ and Mickey ‘nine holes’ Beresford for the silver as all were tied with even par rounds.

‘Belly putter’ Bob Newell, Pierre Bietry, Nigel Jones and Peter Henshaw shared the 2’s pot.

Monday, Oct. 1, Bangpakong – Stableford

1st Jim Bell (17) 47pts

2nd Nigel Black (8) 43pts

Bangpakong Riverside’s superb condition and somewhat forgiving layout was expected to yield some good scores and it did not disappoint.  But no one could have dreamt up  these scores as the Aussie gang went crackers.

Jimmy ‘AK47’ Bell led the way with an amazing 47 points off his departing 17 handicap.  For his exploits, Jim acquired his new moniker, ‘AK47’.

Jim’s total made Nigel Black’s 43-point masterpiece (that included five birdies) look rather ordinary but it was good for the flight silver.  You must spare a thought for Aussie Paul Hack on 41 points and Ed ‘our man in the White house’ Wyckoff who had nothing to show for his 40 points.

Nigel did manage the only 2 of the day to dampen his disappointment

Wednesday, Oct. 3, Bangpra – Stableford

A Flight

1st Suresh Meheta (16) 36pts

2nd Paul Hack (12) 34pts

B Flight

1st Eddy Beilby (17) 31pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (20) 28pts

Suresh Meheta was the only player to shoot his handicap as he led the gang home through the marauding monkeys.  Suresh was followed home in the top flight by two of Monday’s heroes, the Aussie pair of Paul Hack (34) and Nigel Black with 33 points.

Eddy  ‘the eagle’ was amazed his 31 points managed to win the B Flight top prize, and even more so were the Irish pair of Peter ‘Don Corleone’ Henshaw and Christy ‘good’ Knight, both tied on 28 points, as Peter came out on top for the sliver.

Nigel Black was the sole heir to the 2’s pot.

Friday, Oct. 5, Treasure Hill – Stableford

A Flight

1st Jack Bybues (16) 38pts

2nd John Cunningham (6) 34pts

3rd Nick Odnoral (15) 32pts

B Flight

1st Eddy Delaney (22) 36pts

2nd John O’Connell (19) 35pts

3rd Woodsy (20) 35pts

What a difference a course makes!  And some distance (6,726 yds) and some dryness.  The same guys and girls and their sacks of clubs took on the sometime diabolical design of Yoshikazu Kato, who also fartherd the Canyon course as Thailand’s most fabled course, Blue Canyon.  But all the above meant nothing to Jack Bybues as he carded a most impressive 38 points for the A Flight and man of the match honours.

John Cunningham and Nick Odnoral, with 34 points and 32 points respectively, rounded out the flight.

Eddy Delaney matched his handicap to take the top spot in B Flight.  John O’Connell snuck a count back past Woodsy (that’s all the info on Woodsy card) to claim the silver.

Peter Cogging took home the 2’s pot.
