Sunday, August 28, Green Valley – Stableford

1st Vic Hester (14) 42pts

2nd Bob Newell (8) 38pts

B Flight

2nd Lou Zig-Zag (18) 34pts

The storm clouds were gathering as the society left Lewiinski’s for our usual Sunday bash at Green Valley, and they did not disappoint as about half way through the game the heavens opened up.  This caused a few players to give it up for the day.

After about an hour play resumed but only for twenty minutes, as the rain returned with a vengeance.  This also lasted about an hour, by this time the field was depleted to half the original contestants but as they say the show must go on.

It was the senior flight that weathered the storm best as Victor ‘the inflictor’ lived up to his name as he put together an unbelievable (considering the conditions and a no score on the 5th hole) 42 points.  Vic was three clear of Bob ‘Marley’ Newell who seems to have got his timing back.

The Donkey took top podium spot in the junior flight as his 35 points (which included no scores on the 3rd 14th 16th and 17th) was just one stroke clear (much to the delight of gang) of Aussie Lou Zig-Zag.

Bob Newell and Jonny Lindberg split a healthy 2’s pot.

Tuesday, August 30, Greenwood C & B – Stableford

1st John Feehan 37pts

2nd Colin Davis (15) 37pts

3rd Bob Dibben (8) 34pts

The young man from Co. Tipperary, Ireland, John Feehan, could buy his merry band of leprechauns a getaway drink with his 37 points as he took the man of the match honors on a count back over the Donkey, whose own pay window exploits have been duly noted of late.

A bunch of three players were tied three strokes back for the bronze podium spot.  That man from Wales, Bob Dibben, came out on top leaving Peter ‘Don O’Corleone’ Henshaw and Bill ‘the monkey tamer’ Brochart, at sea level.

Mike the welsh Wizard carded the day’s only ‘2’.

Wednesday,August 31,Bangpra – Stableford

A Flight

1st Paul Whitnall (11) 32pts

2nd Michael Mier (7) 31pts

B Flight

1st Jimmy Day (15) 31pts

2nd Don Lehmer (16) 31pts

Bangpra, which many consider to be the toughest test of par 72 on the Eastern sea board, bared the teeth of its tight fairways and lightning glass like greens to ensure no one bettered their handicap.  Colin the Donkey, who is kind enough to lend the scribe on-course assistance, reported that after two holes his group of four well seasoned golfers had five points between them.

Mastering the premier division was Paul Whitnall who won with a best of the day 32 points.  Paul’s score was one stroke ahead of Michael Mier.

Jimmy Day and Don Lehmer, often referred to as the ladies men, and Bill Brochart are not cutting their Tuesday night time activity short by any stretch of the imagination, though it seems to show in their performance on the fairways, as all three could only muster 31 points.  Irelands’ Jimmy Day emerged from the heap to take top spot in the junior division, an out of breath Don faltered on the back side to take the silver.  Bill was left out in the cold and on his own-some.

Brian Holden and Paul Young shared the ‘2’s pot.

Friday, September 2, Treasure Hills – Stableford

1st Jimmy Day (18) 37pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (14) 35pts

3rd Bob Dibben (8) 34pts

My goodness, he’s done it again!  Not happy with Wednesday’s B Flight victory, Jimmy ‘the ladies man’ won the premier flight again today.  To cap it all Jimmy was the only player to better his handicap with a solid 37 points – a super score on this course.

Peter ‘Don O’Corleone’ Henshaw, a shot adrift, made it an Irish double.  Welshman Bob Dibben secured the third podium place a further shot back with the aid of a count back over the unlucky Daniel Oshiro.

The Donkey made good use of his wife’s former employer and course knowledge whose sister and mother still caddie there, to notch the only 2 of the day and so make it a happy reunion.
