B Flight

1st Peter Terry (19) 39pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (16) 36pts

3rd Merle Humphreys (19) 33pts

The story of the day was Peter Terry’s 39 points for man of the match and tops in B Flight.  He was also the only player to better par on the day at the Sunday shortened Green Valley.  Peter’s score was three clear of the pride of Dublin, Peter ‘Don O’corleone’ Henshaw and Merle Humphreys; the Paddy prevailed in the following count back and Peter also pocketed a near pin which he converted for a 2.

Wednesday winner, Peter LeNoury.Wednesday winner, Peter LeNoury.

Turning to the premier flight, Connie Walsh continued his fine play with a count back win over JP Maffray, the reigning player of the month, after both finished with steady 35-point returns.  Bob StAubin added a few shekels to the Jing Jai Orphanage fund as he always does, as he took the last podium place, sending Freddy ‘the quite one’ Starbeck and Broad more Bob to the welfare lines on count back.

Dale Shier and Colin Davis shared the 2’s pot with Peter.

Monday, July 29, Bangprakong – Stableford

1st Rod Brown (18) 43pts

2nd Pat Adland (25) 40pts

3rd Freddy Starbeck (12) 40pts

A relatively modest group, attributable no doubt to the season and back to back playing days, made the long journey to play the customer friendly Bangpakong Riverside.

Rod Brown led the boys into the shed with a 43 point lashing and Pat Adland put a final punctuation on his A Flight silver finish thanks to a count back win over Freddy’ the quite one’ Starbeck.  We might be seeing Pat more often.

Pat and Freddy went head to head again as they split the 2s pot.

Wednesday, July 31, Pattana B & C – Stableford

A Flight

1st Peter LeNoury (9) 38pts

2nd Barry Copestake (14) 38pts

3rd JP Maffray (11) 37pts

B Flight

1st Mike Jeffreys (18) 36pts

2nd Rod Brown (18) 35pts

3rd Merle Humphreys (19) 34pts

Peter ‘the right honorable’ LeNoury was the story of the day as he started to build a formidable bid for ‘the title slot ‘with a co-man of the match count back winning 38pts, a score he shared with Barry ‘the boot’ Copestake in the premier flight.  JP Maffray, who is well known at the pay window, filled the flight as he edged Rod Morison on his own count back, unfortunately there was no step left on the podium for Rod.

Mike ‘the Welsh wizard’ Jeffreys, who could find his way to the pay window blind-folded, took the laurels in B Flight with a steady even par round.  Mike was followed up the podium steps by this week’s co title holder, Rod Brown, as he made is second podium appearance in the week a shot back, and the other man in the bold print, Merle Humphreys, was a further shot back.

Peter LeNoury and JP Maffray split the 2’s pot.

Friday, August 2, Mountain Shadow – Stableford

A Flight

1st Nick Shaw (17) 39pts

2nd Colin Davis (17) 37pts

3rd Laurie McBride (14) 32pts

B Flight

1st Merle Humphreys (19) 34pts

2nd Rod Brown (18) 33pts

3rd Jim Elphick (25) 32pts

Fittingly Friday capped the week off with both the title boys fighting to make the headlines their own, but the headline committee decided rightly so that both should share the honor.  Merle Humphreys took the top spot in B Flight with 34 points; one clear of fellow co-title man Rod Brown to make it three podium place finishes each for the week.  Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick rounded out the flight a further shot back.

Nick Shaw was the top man in A Flight and man of the match with a splendid 39 points on what many believe is the toughest par 72 on the Eastern Seaboard.  Nick was two shots clear of ‘the Donkey’ who I imagine is the man of the month for July.  Irishman Laurie McBride’s eyes were smiling as he grabbed the last B Flight bag of loot.

Colin Davis, Laurie McBride and Peter Henshaw shared the 2’s pot.
