Sunday, Oct. 11, Green Valley – Monthly Medal

A Flight

1st Jason Newell (12) net 70

2nd JP Maffray (12) net 73

3rd Paul Handsberry (10) net 73

B Flight

1st Kim Scaddan (19) net 72

2nd Bob Fagan (23) net 73

3rd Gabriel Enright (19) net 80

Jason Newell showed recently that he was riding a “purple patch” and that play continued today at the Monthly Medal as his net 70 left him two strokes clear of the field.  Jason, a frequent Lewiinski’s player when on vacation here, hails from Puttenham Golf Club in Guilford Surrey and took home the lead cut glass whiskey goblet and bottle of Jamerson’s Irish whiskey.  He also picked up a non-transferable invite to play in the gold medals later in the year.

Following Jason onto the A Flight podium was ‘Mr. Consistency’ himself, JP Maffray, along with Paul Hansberry, who were both three shots back and the count back dictated that JP got to stand a step higher than Paul.

The laurels in B Flight belonged to Kim Scaddan with a steady net even par round.  Bob Fagan lifted the flight silver a shot adrift.

Gabriel Enright had stated on Facebook the previous week that he was the red hot favourite for this month’s medal.  Well he did make the podium but he also came up with ten shots too many to be able to fulfill his prophecy.

Monday, Oct. 12, Khao Kheow – Stableford

1st Dave Charlton (13) 36pts

2nd Peter Godfery (16) 34pts

3rd Lou Szigligeti (18) 34pts

There are some courses that stand at the top of the tree out here and Khao Kheow is one of them.  The course was in great nick and played very tough on the day as the scores would indicate, with no player bettering their handicap.

One man however did manage to at least play to his handicap and that was Dave Charlton.  Dave was two clear of a pair of players, Pete Godfery and Aussie Lou ‘Zig-zag’ and after the divots had settled it was Pete who emerged from the count back in second place, leaving Lou to close the flight podium.

Friday, Oct. 16, Pattana – Stableford

1st Jason Newell (12) 39pts

2nd Kevin Rogers (12) 38pts

3rd Mike Jefferys (16) 38pts

The week concluded with a trip to the play the well-maintained Pattana Golf Club with its island par-3s, par-6s with very challenging greens and a stunning club house.  Surprisingly the scores were in the main very good, with second and third podium spots requiring a count back to separate them.

Both Aussie superstar Kevin Rogers and Mike ‘the Welsh wonder’ Jeffreys tied on very good 38 point returns but it was Kevin who emerged from the count back with the silver, leaving Mike with the bronze.  The Queen’s sole representative was the medal winner, Jason Newell, as he finished the week as he started it with a sparkling 39 man of the match points.
