John Bahng, whom this column has cited as a nice guy several times previously, won B Flight, but more importantly took home the silver incrusted tankard emblematic of the monthly medal, which in this case was for November.  To do so John first had to shoot a dazzling net 69 then win a count-back over Barry Hogan.  Co. Ofally’s Matt Doyle managed to win the bronze despite the pain of a pulled muscle, he or someone had pulled.

The senior flight provided us with another trophy winner, the new low gross trophy kindly donated by Pierre the vice captain, the low gross on the medal day gets to keep the trophy for the month, unless anyone manages to win it three times in the same year.  He or she then gets to keep it.  Seamus the good Captain was the first recipient with another solid net 69.  It was count-back time again to sort out the remaining flight places, Thierry Petremont edging Jeremy Massie for the silver.

Skipping down to C Flight saw three competitors piled up all with net 71’s; Don Lehmer emerging the victor while Pierre ‘the Magician’ filled the silver role with Eddy the Eagle rounding out the flight.

Yui Bietry must have thought she had blown her chances in the Red Flight starting 5-5-9 then staging a remarkable recovery with six straight pars.  Yui duplicated the feat on the back nine to book her spot in the year-end gold along with Seamus, John and Barry.

Jeremy Massie, Peter Lenoury, Chaten Patel, Gavin Knox and Peter Henshaw shared the ‘2’s pot.

Monday, Nov. 15, The Emerald – Stableford

A Flight

1st Ted Lodge (11) 38pts

2nd Peter Lenoury (8) 36pts

3rd Graham Porteous (7) 36pts

B Flight

1st Colin Davis (15) 43pts

2nd Geoff Kubas (19)40pts

3rd Jim Bell (21)37pts

This scribe has mentioned it numerous times but you can’t appreciate how tough it is until you have done it.  Colin ‘The Donkey’ has to find and load every ones clubs, sort out the pairings and the transportation out and corral the late breakfast crowd just to get to the course and then has to find “lost souls” and battle course management, and then still find a way to calm down and focus on his own game.  He did that this Monday in a manner which exceeded all others, amassing 43 points for the junior flight and match honours.

Any other day Geoff ‘Elvis’ Kubas haul of 40 points would have been expected to probably win but today it was good only for the silver.  Jim ‘Houdini’ Bell rounded out the flight with a steady 37 points.

The senior flight provided two even par rounds in the persons of Peter Lenoury and Graham Porteous; Peter had the better of his mate on count-back for the silver.  But the honors belonged to the young man from the Emerald isle Ted Lodge who posted the flights top score of 38 points.

Ed Wyckoff, Mike Holmes, Mike Jeffreys, Homicide Hank and Graham Porteous a brace shared the ‘2’s pot.

Big Matt, left the course for a short time to try to get his muscle sorted out, the destination is unknown.

Wednesday, Nov. 17, Bangpra – Stableford

A Flight

1st Kevin Mcentee (6) 37pts

2nd Terry Mangan (12) 35pts

C Flight

1st Christy Knight (19) 36pts

2nd Joe Tynan (30) 35pts

3rd Eddy Beilby (17) 34pts

Interestingly, today all the flight winners also pocketed a ‘2’ except Kevin Mcentee, he had a pair, to go with his 37 point A Flight win.  Terry Mangan made it a one-two for the Irish boys, carding a sound 35 points while Gavin ‘The Flying Scotsman’ Knox filled the flight on 34 points.

B Flight provided the match winner in Tore Eliassen with his best of the day 38 points.  Dan Blake took the silver a shot back and Co. Dublin’s Albert McEvoy took the bronze a further three shots back.

The Irish Boys took the most of the loot again in C Flight, with Christy ‘Good’ Knights even par round good for first.  Terry Mangan came in second a shot adrift of Christy and Eddy ‘The Eagle’ Beilby filled the flight after getting the better of Jum Karagit on a count-back decision.

Terry Mangan, Matt “pulled a muscle” Doyle and Barry Horgan were the other ‘2’s winners.
