Jimmy ‘AK 47’ Bell led Sunday’s mob with a splendid B Flight winning and best on the day 40 points, and continued his warning to the society that he had his sights set on the year ending Gold Medal.  Gaston Oggier, who is dropping by a little more frequently, much to every ones enjoyment, was close to Jim with 39 points.  It is tough to take second with a score like that.  Aussie Lou Zig zag snuck in for the third spot on 38 points even though he ‘no-scored’ the first hole.

John Harrison and Ed Junger were co-men of the match with excellent rounds of 40 points each in A Flight and B Flight respectively.  Ed was followed up the podium steps by everyone’s favourite, Christy Good’ Knight, with a useful 35 points.  Lou Zig zag’s bid for the podium was almost lost bar for a beneficial count back over the unlucky Ken Hole.

Freddy ‘the quite one’ took the A Flight silver with a rock solid 38 points as Aussie star Lindsey Semple rounded out the flight one stroke in arrears.

The Aussie pair of Lindsey Semple and Lou Zig zag split a very nice 2’s pot.

2nd Lindsay Semple (15) 38pts

B Flight

1st Colin Davis (16) 38pts

2nd Werner Pausch (24) 36pts

With Xmas just around the corner a smaller group than normal turned out to take on Silky Oak, and it was Gaston Oggier, no longer a up and comer but rather an established force, who took the top spot in A Flight and the day’s plaudits with a very creditable 40 points.  Gaston was two clear of Aussie star Lindsay Semple.

The Donkey, playing some fine golf of late, stood atop the B Flight podium with a fine 38 points, two clear of Werner Pausch and his fine even par round.

Gaston Oggier was the sole heir to the ‘2’s pot.

Thursday, Dec. 25, Silky Oak – Stableford

2nd JP Maffray (12) 36pts

3rd Paul Hack (12) 35pts

4th Eddy Beilby (19) 35pts

Silky Oak proved to be a lovely place to spend Christmas Day on what turned out to be an unusually hot day for this time of year.  It was not hot enough to hinder Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick however as he blazed his way round the course to rack up 38 points and take the top spot in A Flight plus the man of the match honours.

Jim’s good mate JP Maffray’s even par round was good for the silver spot while three players squared off for the two minor places; Paul ‘the thunder from down under’ got the better of the count back to secure the bronze, Eddy ‘the eagle’ Beilby took fourth and Gerry the Irish rover was left potless.

No 2’s were recorded so a rollover to Boxing Day.
