Chaten ‘the Raja matt black’ Patel showed the field that he is well on the road to recovery after his hair concerns experienced over the last several months, by leading the gang home this Sunday with a quality 40 point performance.  Jack Lieutenant Spencer marched to the bronze three strokes adrift.  Crowd favorite Yui Bietry was sandwiched between Chaten and Jack with a solid 39 points; Pierre keeping a close eye on the situation.

Sunday’s winners: Chaten Patel and Adam Oyston. Sunday’s winners: Chaten Patel and Adam Oyston.

Adam Oyston placed his stamp on the junior flight with a workmanlike 38 points.  Since numerology is the apparent theme of the article we will keep it going pointing out that five competitors posted 37 point totals: Aussie Lou ‘2-1’ Zig Zag had the best of it as his count-back carried Lou to second place and because there was, as there is in many relationships one too many (in this case three) Mr. Craighead was handed the bronze, leaving Don ‘the ladies man’ Lehmer, Geoff ‘the game keeper’ Doody and Sim ‘card’ Davis to view the prize giving at sea level.

Mike Craighead and Bob Watson, who was only a whisper away from an ace, split a huge 2’s pot.

Tuesday, May 3, Khao Kheow A & B – Stableford

1st Mikko Mutanen (21) 36pts

2nd Ed Wyckoff (11) 35pts

3rd Andy Kelleher (10) 34pts

Mikko Mutanen, who finished in the last position in Sunday’s game, showed that he may have solved the plot as he was man of the match with an excellent even par round – “you have been warned.”  Ed ‘the right honorable’ Wyckoff and Andy Kelleher were stretched out behind Mikko in single figure increments and finished  in that order.

Joe Tynan and ‘the Donkey’ shared the 2’s with ‘the Donkey’ claiming two thirds of the pot.

Wednesday, June 1, Pattana – Stableford

A Flight

1st Andy Kelleher (10) 36pts

2nd Ian Halfpenny (16) 35pts

B Flight

1st Jan Eriksen (16) 40pts

2nd Mikko Mutanen (21) 39pts

A fair sized field took on the Gussan designed Pattana, the course was in excellent condition and a joy to play.

The man who had most to shout about was Jan ‘the quite one’ Eriksen who stole the show with a blistering 40 points, it had to be that good as “don’t say you weren’t warned” Mikko Mutanen was only a stroke adrift for the silver and his second pay day on the trot.

The premier top spot went to Andy Kelleher who went two better than Tuesday’s third place with an even par round top finish.  ‘What’s with this two in a week thing?”  Ian ‘loose change’ Halfpenny took second a shot back.

Friday, June 3, The Emerald – Stableford

A Flight

1st Colin Davis (16) 37pts

2nd Terry Mangan (10) 37pts

B Flight

1st Joe Tynan (29) 38pts

2nd Morton Esseth (18) 36pts

The final trip of the week provided a senior flight collision between Colin ‘the Donkey’ Davis and Co. Wicklow man Terry Mangan.  ‘The Donkey’ used his length and amazing ability to hole out from long distance to take the flight honors.  Colin was matched in every department by Terry but ‘the Donkey’s’ math’s stood up in the resulting count-back.

It was the junior flight that provided the day’s man of the match as Joe Tynan put together a splendid 38 points.  Morton Esseth’s even par round was good for the silver.

Ed Wyckoff never far from the pay desk took home the 2’s pot.
