Peter Henshaw continues illustrious career


PSC golf from Lewiinski’s

Sunday, July 24, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st Sonny Crawford (9) 39pts

2nd Pierre Bietry (14) 37pts

B Flight

1st Peter Henshaw (17) 43pts

2nd Bob Lindbergh (20) 41pts

Peter Henshaw, whom this column has cited as a “nice guy” several times previously, won B Flight but more importantly took the man of the match honors.  To do so Peter had to shoot a dazzling 43 points which was just two strokes ahead of Bob ‘the guru of green valley’ Lindbergh, who has returned to the fold after a six month self-imposed exile.

Sonny Crawford.Sonny Crawford.

Spare a thought for big hitting Adam Oyston who must have thought he had done enough to have won the day with 40 points, and he had, it was just the wrong day.

Moving on to the flagship flight saw the scribe’s personal script writer Sonny ‘get your gun’ Crawford shot a flight best 37 points.  Pierre ‘the Magician Bietry’ was a couple of tricks back to take the silver.

Ian Grout Mark Wood and Bob ‘I love you two’ Newell shared the 2’s pot.

Update on the Strathlene Open.  Buckie boot boys Nick and Sugar fell at the first so let’s hope Reggie can pull something out of the bag.

Monday, July 25, Bangpakong – Stableford

1st Ed Wyckoff (10) 36 pts

2nd Joe Tynan (28) 35 pts

A relatively modest group, attributed to the season and back-to-back playing days, made the journey to Bangpakong.  Ed’ the Senator’ Wyckoff posted a steady even par round for the low score of the day.  Joe ‘Satnav’ Tynan cruised his way round a stoke back for the silver.

No 2’s rollover on Wed.

Wednesday, July 27, Burapha – Stableford

1st Serge Straten (17) 39pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (17) 38pts

3rd Ed Wyckoff (10) 36pts

Peter Henshaw.Peter Henshaw.

Serge Straten used to visit Lewinski’s from his native Haven just when he was short on cash, but lately he has found the feeding so good he has found it difficult to leave.  It didn’t come easy though as his 39 points was just a stroke ahead of the red hot Peter Henshaw.  Ed ‘the right honorable’ Wyckoff keeps sliding on to the podium when no one is looking as a count-back left Joe ‘Satnav’ Tynan at angles.

No 2’s were recorded rollover Friday.

Friday, July 29, Treasure Hill – Stableford

1st Mark Wood (11) 40pts

2nd John Deraden (20) 36pts

3rd Sonny Crawford (9) 36pts

The boys from The Golf Club joined up with Lewiinski’s today and left with all the loot.  Mark Wood, Aberdeen’s favorite son, led the boys home as his fine trademark play was in evidence as always.  Mark was the only player to better par.

The Golf Club’s John Deraden, never far from the pay desk, and Sonny Crawford, lethal off an eleven handicap, squared off in a count-back as both returned solid even par rounds; John’s maths edging Sonny into the bronze spot.

John also took home the rollover 2’s pot.

The scribe will be back in sunny Thailand next week.  Lewiinski’s last hope of glory in the Strathlene Open disappeared as Reggie put two balls in the North Sea on the first hole.
