Newell departs on a high


PSC Golf from Lewiinski’s Golf Society

Sunday 18th October Green Valley

A Flight

1st Jason Newell (12) 43pts

2nd David Palmer (13) 38pts

3rd Andrew Kostopoulos (14) 37pts

B Flight

1st Bob Chidfalo (19) 37pts

2nd Jorn Finnerup (22) 33pts

3rd Jim Elphick (24) 33pts

There were dark clouds in the distance as we approached Green Valley and we were wondering if more rain was on its way.  The course was very wet and there was little or no run on the fairways, however as the round progressed the clouds dispersed and it became a hot and humid day.

Jason Newell.

Jason Newell, the man on fire and the previous week’s medal winner, led the way with an excellent 43 points (gross 77).  Jason might find a one-way ticket to any destination of his choice under the Xmas tree this year.  Jason was five shots clear of David Palmer and yet a further stroke clear of Andrew Kostopoulos.

The laurels in B Flight went to Bob Chidfalo with a steady 37 point return.  Irishman Jorn Finnerup was left clutching the silver but only because his luck held out in the resulting count back with Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick.

Monday, Oct. 19, Treasure Hill – Stableford

1st Larry Pumpa (9) 38pts

2nd Jason Newell (12) 36pts

3rd Per Forsberg (15) 32pts

Treasure Hill is earning a lot of friends these days as the course continues to be in fine condition and more important at this time of year, you get an undisturbed round.  It makes the long trip up the 331 highway well worthwhile, especially if you travel on the transport provided and fancy a kip on the way.

Larry Pumpa wasted no time after his long trip up north to stamp his authority on the game and gain the top spot on the podium with a man of the match 38 points.  Larry was one shot clear of the man in form Jason Newell as he followed Sunday’s win with his second pay window visit on the trot.  Per Forsberg filled the third podium spot on 32 points.

Wednesday, Oct. 21, Siam Country Club – Stableford

A Flight

1st Jason Newell (12) 38pts

2nd Larry Pumpa (9) 36pts

3rd David Palmer (13) 34pts

B Flight

1st Peter Wallace (21) 39pts

2nd Peter Walker (20) 34pts

3rd Paul Kruining (25) 31pts

A good sized field for any season turned out for the chance to play Siam old course.  It had been a long, long time since we had the pleasure to play the oldest course on the Eastern Seaboard.  The course was found to be in excellent condition with sick greens which played very true.

Lewiinski’s golf manger, Irishman Peter Wallace, mastered the course best on the day as he took the top rung in B Flight with a man of the match 39 points.  Peter was five clear of Peter Walker, as Paul Kruining closed the flight with 31 points.

Guess who was the top man in A Flight?  Jason ‘the man in fine form’ Newell as he made it three pay window visits on the trot with a solid 38 points.  The good news for the rest of us is that Jason left for England after the match.  Come back soon mate!

Larry Pumpa took the flight silver with a steady even par round and the podium was rounded out by David Palmer on 34 points.

Friday, Oct. 23, Greenwood – Stableford

1st Matt Cronin (16) 40pts

2nd Matt Timbrell (20) 39pts

3rd David Palmer (13) 38pts

It’s always a pleasure to hold a competition at Greenwood over the A & B courses and Friday proved to be no exception.  In the wet and windy conditions the greens were a tad slower than would normally be experienced but Ireland’s Matt Cronin showed real class to fire a sparkling 40 points – mind you he needed every one of them to fend off Matt Timbrell who lifted the silver with a rock solid 39 and the inform David Palmer on 38 as he made it three pay window visits this week.
