In this multinational community in which we find ourselves members, we had Robert McVey (USA) win B Flight and the monthly medal for December 2012 with a faultless net 66.  Robert who hails from Corpus Christi in the great state of Texas won a lead cut glass whiskey goblet and a bottle of Jameson’s Irish whiskey; he also gets an invitation to play in the year end gold medal to be held later in the year, but more importantly gets his name etched on the Lewiinski’s wall of shame.

Robert was closely followed by Maurice Thurnherr a (Swede) and Jimmy ‘AK47’ Bell (Aussie) stringed out in one stroke increments in that order.

Patrick Regan (Ireland) took the top spot on the podium in A Flight with a sparkling net 67.  Pat left Scotland’s favourite son Mark Wood and Nice Guy ‘Broad more’ Bob (Walsall, England) four shots back.  But nice guys finish last, especially when you’re up against the guile of Mark on count back.  (Ah you can hear One Ball from here).

Dropping down to the Red Flight we saw Yui Bietry (Thailand) win by a street with a net 74 as this was 14 strokes clear of Sim ‘card’ Davis.  Sim found the par fives impossible as she carded a nine on each.

Bob Newell, Dave Stockton, Gareth Gill and Patrick Kelly shared the 2’s pot.

Back at the presentation Robert cracked his bottle of whiskey and shared it with his new found friends.

Tuesday, Dec. 4, Burapha A&B – Stableford

A Flight

1st Bob Watson (5) 38pts

2nd Thierry Petrement (12) 36pts

3rd Max Scot (3) 35pts

B Flight

1st Serge Straeten (18) 41pts

2nd Reg McKay (15) 37pts

3rd Colin Davis (16) 36pts

C Flight

1st Keith McLachlan 0 37pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (20) 37pts

3rd Barry Oats (25) 34pts

The story of the day was Monsieur Serge Straeten and his sparkling 41 points, which topped his B Flight playing friend Reg ‘Buckie boy’ McKay by four clear points.  These two fine efforts made the Donkey’s even par round inconsequential, but mark my words the Donkey never takes things lying down.

Bob Watson topped the premier flight with a fine 38 points, two clear of everybody’s nice guy Thierry Petrement and a further stoke clear of Max Scott.

Aussie Keith McLachlan tied with Irishman ‘Peter Don Corleone’ Henshaw for the C Flight top spot but prevailed in the count back.  The Donkey’s pal, Barry Oats (just mention oats to the Donkey), rounded out the flight on 34 points.

John ‘the big easy’ Hartigan was the sole heir to a very healthy 2’s pot.

Thursday, Dec. 6, Treasure Hills – Stableford

A Flight

1st Pierre Bietry (13) 39pts

2nd Kevin McEntee (8) 35pts

B Flight

1st Donal McGuigan (23) 41pts

2nd Colin Davis (17) 36pts

As our regular Wednesday fixture fell on the King’s birthday, the organizing committee decided to move it to Thursday.  This suited Irishman Donal McGuigan just fine as his delightful 41 points took top spot in B Flight and the man of the match honours.  The Donkey moved up a step to the silver from Tuesday’s third place. (Who mentioned oats?)

Pierre ‘the magician’ Bietry shuffled his clubs and carded a magical 39 points for the top spot in the premier flight.  Kevin ‘the clean up guy’ from Co. Offaly took the silver four strokes adrift.

Tore Eliassen, Ed Wyckoff and Nigel Jones shared the 2’s pot.

Friday, Dec. 7, Crystal Bay B&C – Stableford

A Flight

1st Kevin McEntee (8) 38pts

2nd Peter Hynard (13) 36pts

3rd Dave Shelton (7) 35pts

B Flight

1st Colin Davis (17) 43pts

2nd Brian Cooper (28) 37pts

3rd Mick Pikos (18) 36pts

Yet another 40 plus round as the Donkey galloped away with B Flight and the match honours at Mountain Shadow’s more forgiving sister course, the Thai Takenaka designed Crystal Bay.  The Donkey must have got his oats and a sack of his favourite carrots, as his outstanding 43 points was by far the best score on the day.  A distant second to the Donkey was Brian ‘mini’ Cooper whose 37 points was one clear of third placed Mick Pikos.

I am not going to mention who was top in A Flight with a rock solid 38 points, you will have to use your imagination.  ‘You know who’ was two clear of Peter ‘the right honorable’ Hynard.  Peter in turn was a shot clear of a triumvirate of Dave Shelton, J-P Maffray and Reg McKay.  After the count back Dave took the high road to the podium while Reg took JP down the low road all the way to sea level.

Kevin @#%&#!!, Pat Reagan and Colin the Donkey shared the 2’s pot.
