1st Donald Lehmer (21) 39pts

2nd Jim Elphick (27) 35pts

It was a small field that turned out for this Sunday bash at Green Valley.  The weather remained hot and humid and the course was in excellent condition despite the heavy storms of late.

Don ‘the ladies’ Man ‘ Lehmer showed the lads how it should be played as he turned in a man of the match performance – an excellent 39 points.  Don was also the only player to better his handicap and was four clear of Jimmy ‘two shots Elphick’.

Jimmy picked up the silver with the help of a five-pointer on the fifth hole par-3.  Aiden Murray also had a five-pointer on the seventh par-4 but came up one shot adrift for a podium spot.

Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby and Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw went head to head in a count back for the bronze, both tied on 34 points, and when the mud had settled it was Eddy who was the happiest, leaving Peter at the bar and quite happy with a pint of the black stuff.

Monday, Sept. 5, Greenwood – Stableford

1st Takeshi Hakozaki (16) 40pts

2nd Kevin Rogers (11) 39pts

3rd Pierre Zibinden (22) 39pts

Green Wood A & C nines was the task for the Lewiinski’s gang today.  The course was found to be in its usual fine condition with good fairways and moderately placed pins on the greens, and that led to some extremely good scores.

Takeshi Hakozaki took the man of the match honours with an excellent 40 points, mind you he needed every one of them as two players were tied on 39 points.  Joe ‘sat nav’ Tynan and Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick were those two and Joe maths added up a little better on the inner nine than Jim’s in the resulting count back.

Wednesday, Sept. 7, Khao Kheow A & C – Stableford

1st Yasumasa Watanabe (36) 40pts

2nd Joe Tynan (34) 39pts

3rd Jim Elphick (27) 39pts

Khao Kheow is certainly one of the best and also one of the toughest around, so when we arrived it was nice to see clear skies and no strong winds.  Even so, you cannot take this course lightly, post a good score here and you have played very well.

Today we played A & C nines, which can be a pretty difficult combination with plenty of water and very tough rough.  Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw must have thought he was in with a shout with 38 points and most days he would have been, he just chose the wrong day.

In fact the days scores were identical to Monday’s outing with the top podium spot and man of the match honours going to Yasumasa Watanabe with his rock solid 40 points.  Joe ‘sat nav’ Tynan and Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick were knotted on 39 points and when the knot was undone it was Joe who picked up the silver leaving Jim with the bronze.

Friday, Sept. 9, Burapha – Stableford

1st Chris Marten (15) 39pts

2nd Yasumasa Watanabe (34) 37pts

3rd Peter Henshaw (22) 36pts

Considering the rain we had overnight and during the last few days, the course was in fine condition.  The hot and humid conditions did not affect the scores as Chris Marten was man of the match with a fine 39 point return.  Chris was two strokes clear of Yasumasa Watanabe who followed Wednesday victory with a second place podium spot.  Peter Henshaw was left to tidy up the flight with a useful even par round.
