It is always tough to lose a count back.  It is always tough not to win when you have 43 points.  Well it happened to Terry Power as he and Freddy ‘the quite one’ Starbeck battled it out in A Flight on Sunday.  Terry had the upper hand on the outer nine as his 22 points was 2 clear of Freddy and the inner nine was pretty even until Terry had a no-score on the par four 17th hole.  Terry also made a bogie on the 18th hole leaving Freddy to birdie the last hole to force the count back; Freddy’s nerve held and he did just that.  Amazing game golf!

Co. Dublin’s favourite son Pat Regan took the third podium spot with a fine 39 points as Paul Handsbury rounded out the top four a shot back.

The laurels in B Flight went to Maurice Byrne with a rock solid 39 points.  Aussie Gabriel ‘the thunder from down under’ Enright and Jim Graham could only be separated by a count back; Gabriel edging Jim 22-20 on the back side.

Another Aussie star, Lou ‘Zig-zag’, made his first podium appearance in some time as he closed the flight with an even par round.

Lewiinski’s would like to send all our best wishes to one of our most popular members, Irishman Terry Mangan who has undergone a successful operation recently.  Get well soon my friend and hope to see you in the new year.

Wednesday, Oct. 7, Parichat – Stableford

1st Jason Newell (12) 31pts

2nd Gabriel Enright (20) 29pts

3rd Lou Szigligeti (18) 27pts

With a group of society members opting to avail themselves of the Lewiinski’s trademark road trip to Kanchanaburi, it was just a small yet intrepid lot that ventured to the Parichat Golf Club on Wednesday.  Arriving at our allotted time it was decided to tackle the course off the blue tees, a decision that that came back to haunt the players as the scores would indicate.

New member Jason Newell saw a crack in the weakened defenses and slipped in with 31 points for the top spot in A Flight and the man of the match honours.  Jason was two clear of Gabriel ‘the thunder from down under’ as he made it his second pay-window visit on the trot.  Gabriel’s Aussie mate Lou ‘Zig-zag’ closed the flight podium a shot in arrears.

Friday, Oct. 9, Treasure Hill – Stableford

1st Jason Newell (12) 31pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (23) 30pts

Rolling grey clouds and rumbling skies kept around two thirds of the less hardy competitors in their beds and they missed an opportunity to play one of the toughest causes in the area – Treasure Hill.

There were barely enough players for one division so only two prizes were on offer for the day.  In the event, none of the hopefuls could even match par as the conditions of swirling rain and gusting winds conspired to keep them over the magic number.

For the second game running newcomer Jason Newell took the top spot with 31 points.  Peter ‘he of the black stuff’ Henshaw closed the flight podium a shot adrift.
