Green Valley is typically set up in a forgiving configuration for the weekly Sunday outings; that is forward tees but even that cannot dampen the quality of Pierre (the Captain’s) 43 points to win C Flight. Pierre had been playing at or just around the standard scratch for the past three Sundays and has clearly and finally taken his game to a level more commensurate with his age and physical condition. We will see how he manages with the forth coming cut.
Sunday’s winner Pierre Bietry.
Pierre’s fine effort made also runs of Barry ‘The Boot’ Copestake and former President Peter ‘Don O’Corleone’ Henshaw despite their creditable 39 and 38 points on the day.
As further testimony to the friendly course set up of the day and the familiarity that the field has with the layout, both B and D Flights were won by 42 points and 41 points by David Driscol and Tom Breslin respectively. Dave was followed in B Flight by ‘Bukie boot boy’ Reg McKay and’ fast’ Chaten Patel with Reg Getting the nod via the very tight resulting count-back.
D Flight was filled out by Mickey ‘nine holes’ Beresford with a very nervy 39 points that contained 4 wipes on his card and Anna Freyne with 35 points.
Jumping on the escalator to the A Flight saw the young man Patrick Kelly repeating last Sunday’s masterpiece of 39 points off his plus three handicap. The minor places saw Raji out-point Blair Philip for the second spot on the podium.
There were six competitors with a very handy 2’
Monday, Jan 24, Greenwood – Stableford
1st Terry Mangan (11) 35pts
2nd Pat Hanafin (12) 35pts
1st Ayako Pueshi (18) 34pts
2nd Geoff Kubas (19) 32pts
While points were there for the adding up on Sunday, today was a different story all together with no competitor bettering par. The senior flight was an all-Irish affair that saw Co. Wicklow’s Terry Mangan and Co. Cork’s Maestro Pat Hanafin both post 35 points, and a count-back sorted out the order of ascent.
The junior flight was a bit less dramatic but the loot was just as spendable, just ask Ayako Pueshi who copped the top rung! Geoff ‘Elvis’ Kubas gave every man hope as he strode off to the podium to take up a stance on the second step.
Colm ‘the Irish Rover’ Mullen slotted home the only ‘2’ of the day to help pay for his taxi to the airport.
Wednesday, Jan. 26, Bangpra – Stableford
1st Peter Hynard (13) 41pts
2nd Gavin Knox (11) 33pts
3rd Greg Bates (13) 33pts
1st Tore Eliassen (14) 33pts
2nd Pierre Bietry (15) 33pts
3rd Frank McNamara (17) 30pts
1st Amin Agit (22) 31pts
2nd Jim Elphick (25) 30pts
3rd Sean Sodden (23) 25pts
Peter ‘The Right Honorable’ Hynard served notice that there are still plenty of tricks in his well worn golf bag, as he showed the field nothing but tail lights in his A Flight winning and best on the day 41 points, plus Peter was the only player to better par on the day. Gavin Wilko Knox bested Greg Bates on count-back for the second place on the podium.
The action if one can call it that in B Flight saw Toe Elissen’s back nine hold up in another count-back over the headline boy Captain Pierre Bietry. Irelands’ Big Frank McNamara gratefully accepted the third spot.
Dropping down to the junior flight saw the lads really on fire as Agit Amin put together a 31 point winning total. Jimmy ‘Two shots’ Elphick was a stroke back for the silver and to say that Sean Sodden was gob smacked to find his 25 points held up for third would be an understatement.
Peter Henshaw and Francis Goyons split the ‘2’s pot.
Friday, Jan. 25, Bangpakong – Stableford
1st Yui Bietry (10) 38pts
2nd Gavin Knox (11) 37pts
3rd Gordon Wallace (15) 35pts
1st Jim Elphick (25) 43pts
2nd Geoff Kubas (19) 36pts
3rd John O’Neil (17) 34pts
Jim Elphick, who has seen his handicap climb over the last couple of years, signaled that he may have solved the plot. Jim amassed 43 points for the top spot on the day and B Flight glory. Jim was also one of only three players to better their handicap.
Elvis Kubas penciled in a even par round for second, the third place on the podium was sorted out via a count-back between John O’Neil and A J Butler, the scales tipping in John’s favour.
The premier flight was led in by the girl on fire Yui Bietry with a sparkling 38 points. Gavin ‘Wilko’ Knox followed Yui up the podium steps a shot adrift. A group of four was log jammed on 35 points with Gordon Wallace winning the last premier flight position with a count-back victory over Pat Hanafin, Greg Bates and Francis Goyons.
Andre Fortis was the only golfer to register a 2.
