Sunday, April 20, Green Valley – Stableford
1st JP Maffray (14) 41pts
2nd Lawrie McBride (15) 40pts
3rd Ian Pickles (12) 38pts
1st Peter Henshaw (18) 45pts
2nd John Ianson (27) 43pts
3rd Ulrik Sinding (28) 39pts
With the hot and humid conditions, and the difficult greens which have recently been cored and sanded, it was surprising that the scoring was of a very high standard. It was also surprising that the competitors managed to find the correct tee from the last green that they played due to the alterations to the course layout that have even the members as confused as the head bottle washer, who is reputed to be the architect (sic) of the changes.
Sunday winners – Peter Henshaw (left) with JP Maffray.
Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw led home the B Flight with an outstanding 45 points and secured the man of the match honours. Peter was two clear of John Ianson and a further four shots clear of Denmark’s Ulrik Sinding.
JP Maffray, who did not realize how difficult the course was playing but had the benefit of having the head bottle washer’s sister as his caddy, won the senior flight with a faultless 41 points ahead of Lawrie McBride by a shot. Ian Pickles rounded out the flight with an impressive 38 points.
JP Maffray was also the sole heir to a very healthy 2’s pot.
Tuesday, April 22, Bangpra B & D – Stableford
1st Peter Godfrey (16) 41pts
2nd Nick Shaw (15) 39pts
3rd Freddy Starbeck (13) 37pts
It being the low season a tidy but passionate group took on the David Graham –Gary Panks designed Burapha B & C layouts and the scores were superb.
Nick ‘Elvis’ Shaw had to be happy with his 39 points, that is until Peter Godfrey entered the club house and presented his outstanding 41 points. Freddy ‘the quite one’ Starbeck tided up the flight and shared the 2’s pot with Peter Moon.
Wednesday, April 23, Green Valley – Stableford
1st Bob Patterson (11) 42pts
2nd JP Maffray (14) 40pts
3rd Nick Shaw (15) 37pts
1st Pat Regan (17) 38pts
2nd Colin Davis (17) 37pts
3rd Peter Henshaw (17) 36pts
Bob ‘the Senator tea party Wisconsin’ Patterson, who we do not get to see a lot of these days, was a sight for sore eyes today, or at least he was until he put a 42 point A Flight winning and man of the match lashing on the field.
Bob’s score made JP Maffray’s 40 points look kind of ordinary but it did gain JP the second spot on the podium. Nick ‘Elvis’ Shaw made his second pay window appearance of the week as he rounded out the flight.
Irishman Pat Regan (no relation to Ronald) led B Flight into the barn with a very useful 38 points. The Donkey, who has been out to pasture recently, returned to form as he lifted the silver a stroke back and closing the flight was Peter ‘the silver surfer’ as he added to Sunday’s demolition. Peter puts his recent form down to the black stuff, and plenty of it!
Nick Shaw, Ian Pickles and Geoff Pratt shared the 2’s pot.
Friday, April 25, Mt. Shadow – Stableford
1st JP Maffray (14) 39pts
2nd Takeshi Hakozaki (13) 38pts
3rd Ian Pickles (12) 33pts
1st Christian Boysen (18) 39pts
2nd Jim Bell (19) 33pts
3rd Peter Shaw (28) 31pts
A fair sized crowd for any season turned out to take on the beautiful Mountain Shadow course and for many it was a little too tough to handle.
JP Maffray and Christian Boysen handled it best; JP led A Flight with a flight winning 39 points that made him co-man of the match this was also his second win this week and his third pay window visit. JP was closely followed up the podium steps by Takeshi Hakozaki who was one stroke off the pace. Ian Pickles ‘added a bit of spice’ as he closed the flight with 33 points.
B Flight’s Christian Boysen was the other man of the match with his 39 points. Christian was six clear of second placed Jimmy ‘A-K 47’ Bell. Peter Shaw was surprised as anyone to find himself in third place with 31 points.
The top two in B Flight, Christian Boysen and Jim Bell, shared the 2’s pot.
