Mashi magic at Green Valley


PSC Golf from Lewiinski’s Golf Society

Sunday, August 7, Green Valley – Stableford

1st Mashi Kaneta (16) 43pts

2nd Connie Walsh (15) 37pts

3rd Kevin Hamilton (19) 36pts

It was a fine day this Sunday, hot and humid with a slight breeze to help cool it down.  The course like most was damp with all the recent rain of late and meant there was little or no run on the fairways, but the greens were at a good speed and running true.

Old friend Mashi Kaneta San, who we don’t get to see much, was a sight for sore eyes, or at least that is until he spoiled his welcome by carding the best score of the day, a splendid 43 points that gave him the man off the match honours.

Six strokes behind Mashi was Ireland’s favourite son Connie Walsh.  This left Kevin ‘the big easy’ Hamilton to close the flight.  Don ‘the ladies man’ Lehmer just missed the podium on 35 points.

Monday, August 8, Crystal Bay B & C – Stableford

1st Mogens Melander (24) 46pts

2nd Derek Briton (30) 42pts

3rd Paul Bray (8) 40pts

A fair sized high quality crowd took to the road to play the tough and very popular Crystal Bay B & C nines, and again it was mad hot and humid.

When you score 39 or 38 points here you are almost guaranteed to be on the podium, but not today so spare a thought for Joe ‘sat nav’ Tynan (39 points) and Brian Byrne and Bernard Green (both 38 points) who all returned with nothing.

The reason why was Mogens Melander who shot the lights out a fantastic 46 points as he picked up the man of the match honours and top spot in A Flight, plus a trip to the handicap secretary.  Mogens outburst was four strokes clear of Derek Britons excellent 42 points.  Aussie star Paul Bray put his recent run of count back losses behind him as closed the flight with a splendid 40 points.

Tuesday, August 9, Laem Chabang A & B – Stableford

1st Mogens Melander (25) 42pts

2nd Marcus Earp (29) 39pts

3rd Ryuichi Kkuguro (20) 38pts

4th Connie Walsh (14) 38pts

A tidy yet passionate group took on the Jack Nickolas designed masterpiece Laem Chabang.  The task at hand was the Mountain A and Lake B layouts, and the scores were superb.

Ryuichi Kkuguro and Ireland’s Connie Walsh must have been happy with their 38 point returns until Marcus Earp came in with 39 points that only managed second place.  Ryuichi took the count back over Connie by the narrowest of margins for the third podium spot.

The winner for the second game this week and the man of the match was Mogens Melander with a spectacular 42 points.  Mogens last two games point total adds up to an incredible 88 points.

Friday, August 12, Parichat – Stableford

1st Brian Byrne (18) 37pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (23) 37pts

3rd Connie Walsh (13) 34pts

Well it seems that the troubled times we are experiencing at the moment are truly having an effect on people’s decisions as to perhaps not to visit us in Thailand.  I have never seen quite so low numbers at this time of year.  Despite all this Lewiinski’s still soldiers on.

One group who had things go their way today was the Irish Mafia as they filled the podium with co-men of the match Brian Byrne and Peter ‘the silver surfer’ Henshaw, both tied on 37 points.  When the divots had settled it was Brian who got the top podium spot, with Peter a step down.  The man who made it his third pay window visit this week was the inform Connie Walsh with 34 points in third.
