‘Newell service’ is resumed


PSC golf from Lewiinski’s

Monday 7th March Greenwood – Stableford

1st Gavin Knox (11) 34pts

2nd Gordon Kerr (15) 33 pts

Normal service resumed!  The field is always a bit more modest on the second day of the society’s weekly back-to-back features and this Monday was no exception.  The scores were very modest as one would expect after the grueling four day championship. 

Gavin the clean up guy made the trip and took off with the lion’s share of the loot.  Gordon KO Kerr was just a stroke behind Gavin on 33 points as he filled the flight.  Lou Zigzag and Peter Hynard were a shot further back, no count-back required, chin up Lou.

No 2’s were recorded so a rollover on Wednesday.

Wednesday, March 9, St. Andrews – Stableford

A Flight

1st Paul Bray (4) 40pts

2nd Tore Eliassen (12) 34pts

3rd Francis Goyons (7) 34pts

B Flight

1st Michael Lenihan (17) 44pts

2nd Lou Szigligeti (19) 38pts

3rd Mike Jeffreys (15) 35pts

The lure of the impeccably manicured St. Andrews and the favorable sports day prices attracted a strong field as always, but that didn’t prevent Lou Zigzag, who has got his chin off the floor, and Mike Jeffreys, who needed the aid of a three-way count-back over Peter Henshaw and Lawrie McBride from finishing on the B Flight podium.  However the man of the match Michael Lenihan came out to lead the entire field with a 44-point brilliant performance.

A Flight was not about to go unnoticed as Paul Bray saw his 40 points stand up for top spot.  The calculator was out again to sort out the minor places as four players were log jammed on 34 points.  Tore Eliassen emerged out of the heap to take the silver and Francis Goyons rounded out the flight, leaving Ken Carron and Jim Ledwidge pot less.

Paul Bray and the Irish rover Seamus Cotter split the 2’s pot.

Friday, March 11, Crystal Bay – Stableford

A Flight

1st Silvio Bizzotto (12) 41pts

2nd Jack Grindvold (6) 37pts

3rd Gavin Knox (11) 35pts

B Flight

1st Andre Fortis (17) 39pts

2nd Barry Copestake (15) 38pts

3rd Robin Peach (15) 34pts

It was off to the fine layout at Crystal Bay for the final fixture of the week.  Silvio Bizzotto produced the top score of the day with a sizzling 41 points to take man of the match and A Flight honours.  Jack Grindvold took the silver with a solid 37 points and Gavin ‘you know who’ rounded out the flight, gaining a count-back verdict over Francis Goyons.

Andre Fortis penciled in one more digit than Barry ‘the boot’ Copestake to take top spot in the B Flight and Robin Peach filled the podium.

Silvio added two 2’s to his winnings along with Barry Ingram, John Deaden and Michael Lenihan.

Finally, in case you were wondering about the headline, we have to offer apologies to Bob Newell as in last week’s missive I wrongly awarded him the converted low gross.  It was of course a typing error and I meant to report the coveted low gross, well spotted everyone and this week, just to make amends, we have a photo of Bob receiving his trophy.
