John and Nick double up


PSC Golf from Lewiinski’s Golf Society

Sunday, Sept. 22, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st John Stewart (8) 37 pts

2nd Bob St Aubin (12) 37 pts

3rd Pat Reagan (13) 36 pts

B Flight

1st Ulrik Sinding (36) 39pts

2nd Christian Boysen (24) 39pts

3rd Mike Craighead (23) 36pts

Near Pins:  No 4 J P Maffray, No 9 Ed Wyckoff, No 12 Dave Driscoll, No 16 J P Maffray

The day’s honours were shared by newcomer to the society ranks Denmark’s Ulrik Sinding and fellow Danish mate Christian Boysen, each in the junior flight and each with 39 points.  The sharing came to an end, however, when the count back handed the biggest bag of loot to Ulrik and bid “Aloha” to second place Christian.  Who said Thailand has never been invaded?

Mike ‘the mechanic’ Craighead did not need the help of the calculator as his steady even par round closed the flight.

The steady and always accurate play of John Stewart ensured him of the top spot in the premier flight as his 37 points was more favorably dispersed on the inward nine than that of the unlucky and one of the society’s most generous members (and we have many) Bob St Aubin who, as he always does, donated his winnings including a half share of the ‘2’s pot to the Bann Jing Jai Orphanage.

Co. Dublin’s Pat Regan was Ireland’s representative on the podium as he took the bronze with a steady even par card.

JP Maffray shared the ‘2’s pot with ‘Saint’ Bob.

Tuesday, Sept. 24, Khao Kheow – Stableford

A Flight

1st Nick Shaw (16) 33pts

2nd JJ Harney (12) 33pts

B Flight

1st David Edgar (18) 36pts

2nd Mike Jeffreys (17) 31pts

A low turnout by society standards bucked up against Mango monsoon to take on the always challenging Dye designed Khao Kheow.  The lads found the course in excellent condition and a tough test of golf as the scores would indicate.

Man of the match was David Edgar with a solid even par round while Mike ‘the Welsh wizard’ Jeffreys took the second B Flight place a distant five shots in arrears.

Nick ‘Elvis’ Shaw hit all the right notes as he and Co. Waterford’s JJ Harney topped the senior flight with 33 points each, the scales tipping in Nick’s favour.  JJ was not too disappointed as he was the sole heir to the rollover ‘2’s pot

Wednesday, Sept. 25, Burapha A&B – Stableford

A Flight

1st John Pierrel (11) 38pts

2nd Colin Sansom (12) 37pts

3rd Jean LaRoche (15) 36pts

B Flight

1st Nick Shaw (16) 41pts

2nd Serge Streaton (16) 36pts

3rd Christian Boysen (24) 35pts

Once they get a taste for it, you have a problem.  Nick Shaw followed up Tuesday’s A Flight win with a B Flight and man of the match performance and 41 sparkling points.  Nick was five clear of monsieur Serge Streaton who was one clear of the tandem of Denmark’s Christian Boysen and  Co. Wicklows Jimmy ‘good’ Day.  Christian citing a lower member number grabbed the bronze leaving Jimmy in a daze and potless.

In A Flight John Pierrel was the class of the lot as his 38 points was one clear of Colin Sansom.  The bronze spot went the same way as B Flight, needing a count back to separate Canadian Jean LaRouche and Freddy ‘the Viking’ Starbeck – Jean got the count back decision as Freddy received the same fate as Jimmy.

Freddy did receive a little compensation in the way of a 2, along with all the A Flight place winners.

Friday, Sept. 27, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

A Flight

1st John Pierrel (11) 37pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (16) 33pts

3rd Freddy Starbeck (13) 32pts

B Flight

1st Christy Knight (22) 37pts

2nd Burlan (Japan) (21) 33pts

3rd John Heaney (20) 32pts

Top man on the day honors were shared by A Flight’s Texan John Pierrel, who carded his second win on the trot to promote him to the bold print, and B Flight’s always smiling Christy ‘Good’ Knight.  John’s 37 points was a stroke clear of Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw.  Freddy Starbeck and Colin Sansom locked it up on 32 points – only a count back preventing Colin from adding another podium spot to his vaunted CV.

With Christy sitting firmly on the B Flight top podium spot, second place was filled by a fine golfer from Japan whose name I can neither write nor say – apologize for my lack of Japanese – but I congratulate him on his fine play. The podium was completed by Irishman John Heaney a further shot in arrears.

Both flight winners John and Christy shared the ‘2’s pot.
