Like the true gunslinger he is, Kevin ‘Roy’ Rogers won A Flight and then left town. Well the circumstances were not all that suspicious as Kevin was returning to Oz to that demon called work but he will be back in a couple of weeks. Kevin did let the society know that the last time he returned a score this good was twenty years ago.
Tom ’46-point’ Gorey.
Kevin’s best on the day 45 points edged second place finisher JP Gasser by four points. Broadmore Bob put together a hard worked 40 points off his stingy 6 handicap for the bronze; Bob took it all in his stride though as he also collected a converted near pin.
The belle of the bar Jum Karagit claimed the top podium spot in B Flight with a very creditable 37 points. Jum was two clear of a trio of players Sureth Metsa, Eddy Beilby and ‘the Donkey’. Sureth followed Jum up the podium steps with Eddy ‘the Eagle’ close behind. There was no podium spot for ‘the Donkey’ much to the amusement of the presentation crowd.
Kevin Rogers, Peter LeNoury, Chaten Patel and Julias January shared the 2’s pot with Bob Newell.
Monday, Nov. 25, Khao Kheow – Stableford
1st Colin Smith (9) 35pts
2nd John Lagdon (5) 35pts
3rd Lindsay Semple 34pts
1st Gerry Cooney (18) 38pts

1st Tom Gorey (19) 34pts
2nd Christy Knight (20) 31pts
3rd Brian (Kent) Cooper (25) 31pts
A Flight had the bragging rights on Sunday but B Flight stole them on this day and the man they sent to do it was Irishman Gerry Cooney as he nailed a splendid 39 points. Gerry and flight runner-up, Scotland’s Buckie boy Reg McKay, were the only two players to better their handicaps on the day. The flight was closed by Ireland’s Lim McGuiness on 33 points.
Sunday winners – Kevin Rogers and Jum Karagit.
In A Flight it was hard luck to John Lagdon as his 35 points only provided him with the second flight spot thanks to a count back loss to Colin Smith as he took the top position. Aussie Lindsay Semple nicked the bronze from Co. Offaly gang member Kevin ‘you know who’, both a shot in arrears.
It was a good day for the ‘Micks’ in C Flight as County Wexford man Tom Gorey took the top spot on the podium with a steady 34 points. Co. Dublin’s best dressed golfer Christy ‘good’ Knight and Brian ‘mini’ Cooper knotted it up for second and third with Christy enjoying the bigger count back pay day.
Lindsay Semple, Kevin McEntee, Andrew Byrne and Liam McGuiness shared the 2’s pot.
Tuesday, Nov. 26, Burapha C & D – Stableford
1st JP Gasser (12) 41pts
2nd Paul Robinson (13) 35pts
3rd Bruce Anderson (9) 34pts
1st Walter Baechli (17) 39pts
2nd Lindsay Semple (15) 36pts
3rd Terry Mangan (15) 35pts
1st John Knight (22) 38pts
2nd Mike Jeffreys (18) 35pts
3rd Jim Elphick (23) 33pts
It was back to Burapha where once again the unlikely pairing of Crystal Spring and Dunes was the task at hand.
JP Gasser showed that girth wasn’t a requirement as he used his supple power and innate talent to take the day’s honours with a best on the day 41 points. Paul Robinson took the A Flight silver with 35 points and the balance of the podium was filled by a fellow that had 34 points but which one? The numbers went favorably for Bruce Anderson as the Co. Offaly gang man returned to the hide out potless.
Walter ‘meet me at the altar’ Baechli made a rare appearance with the society and made it a worthwhile one as his 39 points took the gold in the B Flight. Walter was three clear of Aussie star Lindsay Semple while Terry ‘pork chop’ Mangan closed the flight a further shot adrift.
John Knight made a quick visit to the pay window in the junior flight with a splendid 38 points as he bettered Mike ‘the welsh wizard’ Jeffreys by three. Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick closed the flight on 33 points.
Paul Robinson a brace shared the 2’s pot with Bruce Anderson, Andy Byrne, Chris Martin and Ian Pickles.
Wednesday, Nov. 27, Green Valley – Stableford
1st Bob Newell (6) 39pts
2nd Ed Wyckoff (12) 38pts
3rd Sugar Robertson (11) 38pts
1st Eddy Beilby (18) 40pts
2nd Reg McKay (17) 38pts
3rd Bruce Walters (16) 32pts
Today we returned to our adopted home course Green Valley. Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby was man of the match with his rousing 40 points and top man in B Flight, but he needed every one of them as Broadmore Bob took the honours in A Flight with 39 points.
Ed ‘our man in the White house’ Wyckoff and Scotland’s Buckie boy Sugar Robertson both returned fine 38 points but Ed’s course knowledge and the fact that he is resident here in Pattaya help sway the count back in his favour.
Sugar’s close friend Buckie boy Reg McKay followed ‘the Eagle’ up the B Flight podium steps with a solid 38 points and Aussie Bruce Walters needed the aid of a count back to claim the bronze, leaving Liverpool’s Ray ‘hub cap’ Fowlis out in the cold and penniless.
Pat Regan a brace, Peter LeNoury and Eddy Beilby shared the 2’s pot.
Thursday, Nov. 28, Crystal Bay – Stableford
1st Thierry Petrement (14) 43pts
2nd JP Gasser (12) 40pts
3rd Kris Kay (7) 37pts
1st Tom Gorey (I9) 46pts
2nd Merle Humphreys (18) 38pts
3rd Christy Knight (20) 38pts
Well there it is – a score that would normally raise the heckles of a skeptical Pattaya golf crowd but which in this case received a congratulatory round of applause. Tom’s magnificent 46 points was the top in B Flight and the best score on the day. Had Tom managed one more point he could have had Jim Bell;s moniker ‘AK 47’.
Golfing luminaries Merle Humphreys and fellow ‘Mick’ Christy ‘good’ Knight followed Tom up the podium steps, albeit from a distance but they were the first to admit that the loot spends just the same.
A word about the rest of the society starts with A Flight winner Thierry Petrement, who has been seen at the pay window constantly of late but had not made a handicap move. That changed today with Thierry’s exemplary 43 points. JP Gasser managed a 40-pointer but sadly it was good only for the silver. Thailand’s Kris Kay rounded out the flight with a solid 37 points.
Thierry Petrement, Chris Martin, Ed Wyckoff, Francis Goyons, Tom Gorey and Jum Karagit shared the 2,s pot.

3rd Kevin Rogers (11) 36pts
1st Nick Ordinal (17) 44pts
2ndPierre Bietry (16) 38pts
3rd Thierry Petrement (14) 37pts
1st Ray Fowlis (36) 41pts
2nd Bruce Walters (34) 34pts
3rd Bob Fagan (19) 31pts
Well Odnoral, as in Nick Odnoral is not a four letter word but it is sure being bandied about in much the same manner. His round of the day 44 points won the day and B Flight and Nick showed unequivocal signs that he is coming into top form. Lost in the roar of the lynch mob was a splendid round of 38 points by Pierre Bietry. Pierre’s good friend Thierry Petrement took the bronze a further shot a drift.
Aussie Bruce Anderson, playing his usual steady golf, took the honours in the premier flight with 38 points by a whisker from Peter ‘Fluent in Thai’ Hynard. The headline boy Kevin ‘Roy’ Rogers closed the flight with a steady even par round.
Ray ‘Hub cap’ Fowlis made sure the gang in C Flight received recognition as he posted a cracking 41 points. It is great to Ray’s dedication to the driving range starting to bear fruit. Ray was seven clear of Aussie Bruce Walters and a further three clear of Bob Fagan.
Ed Wyckoff and Colin Davis shared the 2’s pot with five other golfers.
