31 players squared up to contest the Sunday bash at the traditional Sunday venue of Green Valley Rayong.  To say that Rune Aksdal vanquished the field is putting it lightly.  He was a tigeresque 4 shots clear of both divisions.  He is fortunate that he has an alias because the field might be after him following his brilliant 44 point performance which contained a near pin that he converted for a 2.

William Peach was five shots back for the silver and a count back was required to sort out the bronze between Mickey Beresford, Colin ‘the Donkey’ Davis and Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby, with Mickey having the upper hand.

Paul Smith’s sparkling 40 point return was the best of the mere mortals in A Flight while Neil King took the top flight silver with a solid 39 points and old friend JP Maffray rounded out the flight.

Neil King, Dave Stockman, Greg Bates and Gerry Roche shared the 2’s pot with Rune.

Tuesday, Sept. 30, Khao Kheow – Stableford

A Flight

1st Eddy Beilby (15) 38pts

2nd Neil King (6) 37pts

3rd Colin Hopkins (12) 33pts

B Flight

1st Rune Aksdal (25) 37pts

2nd Jim Elphick (26) 36pts

3rd Marcus Earp (33) 34pts

A visit to Khao Kheow is usually a popular and very competitive affair, and today’s visit proved to be no exception playing in very hot and humid conditions as the scores reflected the difficulty with only three players breaking par.

Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby, playing his usual steady game, headed the senior flight with a man of the match 68 points, although Neil King gave him a close race as he was just a point adrift.  Colin Hopkins took the third spot all on his own with a useful 33 points after the initial count back which left Kris Kay potless at sea level.

The inform Rune Aksdal took his second podium position of the week as he headed the junior flight with a solid 37 points.  Rune was followed up the podium steps by Jimmy ‘two shots’ Elphick with a steady even par round.  Marcus Earp fired a useful 34 points to close the flight out.

Neil King a brace, Colin Davis and Phil Davies shared the 2’s pot.

Wednesday, Oct. 1, Bangpra – Stableford

A Flight

1st Paul Smith (4) 38pts

2nd John Pierrel (11) 36pts

3rd Neil King (15) 32pts

B Flight

1st Rod Brown (17) 38pts

2nd Rune Askdal (25) 37pts

3rd Aiden Murray (19) 34pts

Nothing new to report, the same old faces and Paul Smith with his second win of the week.  Paul was followed up the podium steps by John Pierrel with a steady even par round as Neil King, who himself made it three flight spots this week, closed the flight with 32 points.

Aussie star Rod Brown was one clear of Rune Askdal and Aiden Murray rounded out the flight on 34 points.

With so much talent on display it was surprising to find that no one carded a 2.

Rune Askdal continued his remarkable run of form as he topped B Flight with 38 points.  His three wins and a second place finish has earned him a trip to the handicap office.  Aiden Murray picked up the silver with 37 points leaving newly arrived back from Ireland Christy ‘good’ Knight to close the flight with 34.

Paul Smith retuned a remarkable three 2’s along with six other players.
