A couple of old vets knotted it up for man of the match: Dave Boran arrived in the ‘Land of Smiles’ just the day before and may have given a glimpse that it was time to again put his name “ on the wall” in the up and coming monthly medal comp with a fine 39 points in the premier flight. Peter ‘the man from Atlantis’ Henshaw matched Dave’s output to take the top spot in B Flight. Co. Dublin’s Pat Reagan followed Dave home as he out-pointed the Golf Club’s big hitting nice guy John McHugh on the inward nine to take the silver.

Jez ‘Lord Lucan’ Lee took the silver in B Flight with a steady 35 points, although he had an amazing four no scores on his card. Jim ‘AK47’ Bell showed little chivalry in winning the count back over the ever green Mike ‘the mechanic’ Craighead.
Dave Boran, Pat Regan, Lee Adelly Peter Henshaw, Jim Bell and Claude Harder shared the 2’s pot.
Monday, Dec. 24, Greenwood C&A – Stableford
1st J-P Gasser (11) 35pts
2nd Peter Hynard (13) 33pts
1st Lindsay Semple (15) 37pts
2nd Colin Davis (17) 35pts
Old friend ‘the man from down-under’ Lindsay Semple was a sight for sore eyes; at least, that is until he spoiled the warm welcome by coming in with the day’s top round and B Flight winning score. Lindsay was also the only player to better his handicap on the day and his 37 points was two clear of ‘the Donkey’.
J-P Gasser continues his way to the pay window and his 35 point senior flight winning points insured it was a worthwhile trip. Peter ‘the right honorable’ Hynard crept in to second place with his 33 points.
Good old pal Mick Folan lifted the 2’s pot.
Every year, Christy Knight invites his friends to his house for a Christmas party and karaoke. Peter ‘the man from Atlantis’ Henshaw was the first to negotiate his way round the pool to give his recital of a Jonny Cash hit “a Boy named Sue”. Ed Delaney predicted that Peter might just fall in the pool as Peter was well and truly sloshed. Peter did not disappoint as he tripped head first in to the deep end. We all agreed the ‘tuna’ we got him out the better, and Peter muttered something about feeling a right tope and he would not return next year to this dive.
A great night was rounded off with ‘Broad more’ getting the girls to throw their underwear at him with his interpretation of the Tom Jones hit “Sex bomb” and the scribe’s George Formby masterpiece “when I’m cleaning windows”.
Many thanks, to Christy and Mango, for a wonderful night.
Wednesday, Dec. 26, Bangpra – Stableford
1st Francis Goyons (9) 35pts
2nd Ronnie Wilson (11) 35pts
3rd Thierry Petrement (12) 33pts
1st Tore Eliassen (15) 36pts
2nd Mike Jeffreys (19) 35pts
3rd Jerry McCarthy (14) 35pts
1st Mick Coghlan (25) 37pts
2nd Barry Oats (25) 32pts
3rd Keith McLachlan (21) 30pts
Red & Silver Flight
1st Brian Prudden (19) 38pts
2nd Nadine Goyons (11) 32pts
Brian Prudden, tired of constantly hearing wife Marlene’s name hailed to the victory podium, put his foot down and shot the best score in the Red and Silver Flight, which also won him the man of the match as he led the guys and girls home. Brian was six strokes clear of Nadine Goyons. Marlene was 2 shots back with a no-counting third place.
You can’t fault Ronnie Wilson’s 35 point A Flight return but it was not as favorably distributed as Francis Goyons who made it a family double podium visit. The calculator was on overtime as Thierry Petrement, Dave Shelton and teaching pro Ian Ashendon all vied for the bronze; it finished with Ian and Dave heading for the driving range to sort out the problems.
Tore Eliassen led B Flight into the barn with a respectable even par round, bettering three players all a stroke in arrears; Mike Jeffreys, Jerry McCarthy, and the Donkey. The calculator needed new batteries to sort this one out but when the dust had settled it was the Donkey who missed out, but I know no one felt bad about it.
Skipping down to C Flight we saw Mick Coghlan return the second best card of the day – a solid 37 points. Barry Oats was a distant second on 35 points, while Kiwi ace Keith McLachlan rounded out the flight a further shot back.
J-P Maffray, J-P Gasser and Petai Vetowiem shared the 2’s pot.
(Peter ‘the man from Atlantis’ failed to turn out and rumor has it he was trying to improve his diving technique).
Friday, Dec. 28, Mountain Shadow – Stableford
A Flight (Silky Oak)
1st Pat Hanafin (13) 35pts
2nd Andy Kelleher (10) 34pts
3rd Save Shelton (8) 35pts
B Flight (Silky Oak)
1st Brian Prudden (19) 38pts

C Flight (Green Valley)
1st Geoff Kubas (22) 38pts
2nd Sean Murphy (29) 32pts
3rd Esara Duangsri (35) 31pts
Brian Prudden continues to amaze as he quickly acclimates to each new flight level. This day was further evidence as Brian garnered 38 points for his co-man of the match B Flight top spot and second win in as many games. Brian’s 38 points was six clear of good friend Ed Junger, as Mike Jeffreys prevailed on count back over the unlucky Jimmy AK47 Bell for third.
C Flight was not about to go unnoticed as Geoff ‘Elvis’ Kubas was in fine tune to match Brian’s 38 points for the flight and co-man of the match honours. Sean ‘the Irish rover’ Murphy’s 32 points held up for the silver while Esara Duangsri was a shot in areas of Sean to close the flight.
A Flight was led by another from the ‘old sod’, Pat Hanafin, as his 35 points took the podium top spot. Andy Kelleher followed Pat up the podium steps a shot back and Dave Shelton and J-P Maffray went to count back for the bronze; alas to J-P there was no step left for his 32 point effort.
Andy Kelleher, Dave Shelton, Rob Mulholland, Jon Haugen and Nial Higgins shared the 2’s pot.
