Sunday 12th June St Andrews Monthly Medal

A Flight

1st Peter Henshaw (17) net 67

2nd Gabriel Enright (17) net 68

3rd Jack Grindvold (6) net 72

Red Flight

1st Yui Bietry (11) net 73

Near Pins:  No 3 Peter Henshaw, No 5 Yui Bietry, No 10 Bob Newell, No 17 Jack Grindvold

Peter Henshaw, who this column has cited as a nice guy several times previously, won A Flight, but more importantly took home a lead crystal whisky glass and a bottle of Jameson’s Irish whisky emblematic of the monthly medal, which in this case was for the month of June.

To do so Peter had to shoot a dazzling net 67 at the treacherous St Andrews and beat Gabriel “the thunder from down under” Enright by a single stroke.  Gabriel plays his golf at the Moore Park Golf Club which is situated near Sidney in Australia.

Jack Grindvold took the bronze with a very steady even par round which also won him the prestigious low gross trophy.

Yui Bietry added yet another champagne flute and bottle of champagne to her extensive collection in the ladies flight.  Yui also added a further no transferable invitation to join Peter in the year end gold medal competition.

Peter made it a day to remember carding the only ‘2’ of the day, all this on a day that saw a record no returns by some very capable golfers.

Tuesday, June 14, Greenwood – Stableford

1st Ed Wyckoff (10) 39pts

2nd Colin Davis (16) 39pts

It came down to two wily seasoned society members to see who would stand atop the podium.  Would it be Ed ‘the right honorable’ or Colin ‘the Donkey’, as both had 39 points.

Colin has the treachery and guile from surviving the Black Country in a long and distinguished career in the sun bed and old folk’s business, but as soon as the winner was going to be determined by count-back, there was little doubt over who was the home team, Ed ‘The right honorable’ Wyckoff.

Peter Hayward’s well executed 38 points was only good for a ringside seat at the presentation.

Just to rub salt into ‘the Donkey’s’ pride, Ed carted off the 2’s pot.

Wednesday, June 15, Burapha – Stableford

1st Peter Hynard (14) 36pts

2nd Colin Davis (15) 34pts

3rd Terry Mangan (10) 33pts

It was back to Burapha once again and the unlikely pairing of Crystal and Dunes were the task at hand.

Peter Hynard who just missed out the day before put that all behind him as he used his supple power and innate talent edge Colin ‘the Donkey’ in to second place by two clear strokes for the second time in as many games.  The balance of the podium was to be filled by Terry Mangan as his back nine numbers turned the tables on Ed ‘the right honorable’ Wyckoff and left him out in the cold.

Big Aussi lad Adam Oyston skipped off with the ‘2’s pot.

Friday, June 17, Crystal Bay – Stableford

A Flight

1st Dale Shier (13) 36pts

2nd Jack Spencer (10) 35pts

B Flight

1st Ed Delaney (29) 36pts

2nd Mike Jeffreys (18) 35pts

The society was joined by some of our friends from our sister club – The Golf Club – for today’s outing at Crystal Bay.  Considering the amount of rain lately the course was in fine condition.  Interestingly both flight places were won with the same scores.

The senior flight was led home by The Golf Club’s star player Dale Shier with an even par round; Dale was followed up the podium steps by Jack ‘Bilko’ Spencer a shot adrift.

The junior flight honor went to Irishman Ed Delaney followed by the Mike ‘the Welsh Wizard’ Jeffreys.

Colin Davis, Peter Hynard, Benn Nelson, Brad Sproxton, Mike Jeffreys and Peter Henshaw shared the ‘2’s pot.
