The boys are back in town – Kevin McEntee, Matt Doyle and Andrew Byrne together they are collectively known as the Co. Offaly gang.  You will no doubt read a lot more about them in the coming weeks.

The Co. Offaly mob - Kevin, Matt and Andy. The Co. Offaly mob – Kevin, Matt and Andy.

This apart did nothing to put Victor ‘the inflictor’ Hester off his game as he put a 40 point lashing on the field for the A Flight top spot and man of the match.  Vic was three strokes clear of Chris Sloan and yet another of the man in form, Paul Herring.

It might have taken a bit of a technicality to sort out B Flight but it also took 18 holes of quality golf as Eddy ‘the Eagle’ was found perched on the top podium spot.  The technicality involved Dave Driscoll who mistakenly hit a shot from out of bounds not realizing his error, but regrettably the hole was deemed a no counting hole for Dave, which led to a count back that went in favour of the Eagle.  Dave was an exceedingly good sport about it and the organizers were most appreciative of that.

A second count back was needed to fill the flight involving newly arrived Colm ‘the right Honorable’ Mullen and Claude ‘try a little’ Harder, the scales tipping in Colm’s favour.

Chris Sloan, Yui Bietry and Francis Goyons shared a very healthy 2’s pot.

Monday, Oct. 22, Pattana B&C – Stableford

A Flight

1st Paul Herring (12) 36pts

2nd Matt Doyle (14) 33pts

B Flight

1st Peter Henshaw (21) 31pts

2nd Colm Mullen (16) 31pts

The inform Aussie Paul Herring continued his purple patch as Sunday’s third place was followed by today’s first.  Paul was the only player to match his handicap and so took top spot in the senior flight.  Paul was three strokes clear of (here they come) Matt ‘Dillon’ Doyle, but it did need the aid of a count back over the unlucky Francis Goyons.

B Flight turned out to be an all Irish affair as Peter ‘Don O’corleone’ Henshaw went head to head with Colm ‘the Right Honorable’ Mullen as both were tied on 31 points.  Peter emerged the victor in the resulting count back.  Big Frank McNamara kept an eye on proceedings as he came up a shot shy.

Francis Goyons, Andrew C-O Byrne, Jim Bell, Rod Brown and Merle Humphreys shared the 2’s pot.

Wednesday, Oct. 24, Crystal Bay – Stableford

A Flight

1st Mickel Lauren-Gonnet (16) 41pts

2nd Barry Copestake (16) 36pts

B Flight

1st Jimmy Day (18) 37pts

2nd Joe Tynan (29) 24pts

The one thing you can count on is that whenever Crystal Bay is the venue the scores are going to be over par.  The performance of the field was consistent of that assumption that is if you don’t consider Mickel Laurent-Gonnet as part of the field.  Somebody forgot to tell Mickel that this is one of the toughest tracks in the area with possible the exception of St Andrews.  Mickel’s 41 point outburst was five strokes clear of Barry ‘the Bionic man’ Copestake and yet one more ahead of Sundays hero Vic ‘the Inflictor’.

Actually B Flight had a better than par round competitor as the good captain Jimmy Day led by example with 37 points.  Two other Irishmen went head to head for the Silver as Joe the ‘ever green’ Tynan was the recipient of a count back over Ivan Plunkett.

The two flight winners split the 2’s pot.

You might be wondering what happened to the Co. Offaly gang, it appears they can’t handle the wet weather as the whole gang walked in on the fourteenth hole.  But to be fair they weren’t on their own.

Friday, Oct. 26, Treasure Hill – Stableford

A Flight

1st Mickel Lauren-Gonnet (16) 41pts

2nd Matt Doyle (14) 35pts

3rd Francis Goyons (8) 35pts

B Flight

1st Alan Delaney (21) 38pts

2nd Mike Jeffreys (19) 37pts

3rd Peter Henshaw (21) 36pts

Mickel Lauren-Gonnet was an ecstatic A Flight winner as the Lewiinski’s regular tallied a sparkling 41 points to put a fair sized dent in his 16 handicap.  Co. Offaly gang member Matt ‘Dillon’ Doyle had the better of a count back over Francis Goyons as both were locked on 35 points.

Alan Delaney topped out B Flight with a very creditable 38 points; Alan was trailed in by Welshman Mike Jeffreys and Irishman Peter ‘Don O’corleone’ Henshaw in one stroke increments.

Kevin ‘O-G McEntee a brace, Francis Goyons, Mark Watson, Eddy Beilby and Barbra Cooper shared the ‘2’s pot
