Wira leaves on a high


PSC golf from Lewiinski’s

Sunday, May 1, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st Gordon Wallace (15) 40pts

2nd Bob Newell (5) 38pts

B Flight

1st Jan Eriksen (18) 39pts

2nd Mark Bonner (15) 38pts

Near Pins:  Garry Blackburne, Einar Widness, Terry Mangan, Yui Bietry

With the Co. Offaly gang heading back to Ireland with their pockets lined with the society’s loot and monthly medal, it was Gordon Wallace who did the best work on the day in the premier flight as evidenced by his rock solid 40 points.  Bob ‘Seamless’ Newell appears to have well and truly put his run of health problems behind him as his 38 points was good for the silver.

‘Snowball’ winner Terry Mangan. ‘Snowball’ winner Terry Mangan.

Jan ‘the silent one’ stole the show in the junior flight with a steady 39 point return.  Mussels Bonner cashed in on his last game before returning to his London cab duty, with a more than useful 38 points.

Yui Bietry, Garry Blackburne, Thierry Petremont, and Einar Widness shared the 2’s pot.

Back at the ranch it was sad to see Mussels head back home, the same could not be said of the Offaly Gang, but the Irish had the last say as Terry Mangan won the snowball and graciously rang the bell.

Tuesday, May 3, Khao Kheow A&B – Stableford

1st Jon Haugen (7) 33pts

2nd Peter Hynard (14) 31pts

3rd Tore Eliassen (14) 31pts

A relatively modest group (attribute to the season) took on the favorite of many, Khao Kheow.  The scores reflected the difficulty of the A&B layout and John Haugen, a regular visitor to the pay window, was top performer on the day with a modest 33 points.

Jon was followed up the podium steps by old friends Peter ‘the right Honorable’ Hynard and Tore Eliassen; the order of accent was determined by count-back.

Jon Haugen, John Heaney and Einar Widness shared the 2’s pot.

Wednesday, May 4, Bangpra – Stableford

1st Wira Siduang (10) 41pts

2nd Jan Erikssen (18) 36pts

3rd Gordon Wallace (15) 33pts

There was no man of the match, but there was a lady of the match as Wira Siduang put a 41 point lashing on the field.  Jon ‘the quite one’ carded an even par round for second place.  Gordon Wallace got the right result in a count-back to fill the podium over the unlucky Tore Eliassen.

Friday, May 6, The Emerald – Stableford

A Flight

1st Wira Siduang (10) 39pts

2nd Jimmy Day (15) 36pts

3rd Pierre Bietry (15) 35pts

B Flight

1st Barry Oats (27) 36pts

2nd Joe Tynan (29) 34pts

3rd Jim Elphick (23) 34pts

As is so often the case, a player’s vacation ends just as he or she finds her form and Wira Siduang experienced just that.  Wira cashed 39 points to take the A Flight and the match honours for the second victory on her last week before returning to the tepid weather of Oslo, Norway.  The society whishes Wira and Einar all the best, especially Wira with her amended handicap.

Jimmy vice Captain Day showed he is ready for the upcoming challenge as he edged Pierre the Captain elect by a single shot for second.

Barry Oats shot even par for top spot in the junior flight; this made also-rans out of Joe ‘Sat-Nav’ Tynan and Jimmy ‘Two shots’ Elphick – Joe gaining a count-back decision over Jimmy.

Pity Wira’s old man Einar never made the podium but he did cop a super 2’s rollover to easily take care of the Taxi to the airport.
