It was time to feel to good about our games; and what better way better way to do it than having a day at the Sunday configured Green Valley “lay-in” (it is a layout on the week days). There is no better way of to improve your game than to play an easier course. Consistent with the current climate of conversation, it’s sort of an “ends” justifying the means” type deal.
Brian Wilkinson, right, with Lewiinski’s golf manager, Colin.
Well the lads and lasses kindly obliged, firing one 42, three 40s, a couple of 39s and a 38. You would have to go to the lingerie shop across from the plastic surgeons office to see those kinds of numbers!
But lest the efforts of the winners be diminished, you must realize many in the big Sunday field did not fare so well. So hats off to the man of the match, though its odds on that you will have heard about it well before this edition hits the streets. Brian ‘Wireless’ Wilkinson’s 42 points senior flight score bettered Yui and Thierry Petremont’s 40 point hauls; Yui getting the verdict in the resulting count-back.
Eddy’ the Eagle’ Beilby was the top man in the junior flight with another splendid 40 points and Mike ‘The Mechanic’ Craighead’s 39 points held up to a count-back scrutiny to better Colm’ the silent assassin’ Mullen.
A shed full ‘2’s – twelve in all – with Paul Shaw slotting home a brace on them.
Monday, Nov 29, Greenwood – Stableford
1st Peter Hynard (13) 40pts
2nd Gavin Knox (12) 38pts
3rd Terry Mangan (11) 33pts
1st Lou Szigligeti (20) 37pts
2nd Eddy Beilby (16) 35pts
3rd Joe Tynan (29) 35pts
Peter Hynard “cited never leaving myself a shot short” as the reason he was able to leave the field behind and stand atop the A Flight podium. He needed every trick in his well worn but extensive book of golf tricks to edge the ‘flying Scotsman’ Gavin Knox. Meanwhile the Co. Wicklow man needed all the luck of the Irish to beat Ed ‘The Right Honorable’ Wyckoff on a count-back for third.
Lou Zigzag one of the gang from the Peninsular Social Golf Club of Western Australia served notice that he is back in town, as hit the ground running with a top score of 37 points in B Flight. Married life seems to suit Eddy ‘the Eagle’ and his golf game, as he again ascended the podium. ‘Sat Nav’ Tynan, who the paymaster knows by this moniker, made it into the third spot.
No ‘2’s were recorded so it is a rollover to Wednesday.
Wednesday, Dec. 1, St. Andrews – Stableford
1st Ed Wyckoff (10) 42 pts
2nd Thierry Petremont (11) 40pts
3rd Kevin Mcentee (6) 39pts
1st Pierre Bietry (16) 42 pts
2nd Don Lehmer (17) 37 pts
3rd Tore Eliassen (14) 36 pts
1st Lou Szigligeti (20) 36 pts
2nd Joe Tynan (29) 34 pts
3rd Jim Bell (21) 32 pts
Ed ‘The Right Honorable’ Wyckoff and Pierre ‘The Magician’ Bietry were co-men of the match as they posted joint best top 42 points on the day in A Flight and B Flight respectively.
Ed was followed in A Flight by Thierry Petremont, no stranger to the pay window himself, while Kevin Mcentee, who has gone a bit quiet (by the Offaly gang’s standards) took the bronze. Perhaps Kevin is missing his sidekick Big Mat.
Every body’s favorite Don Lehmer took the silver in B Flight by the narrowest of margins over the ‘Viking’ Tore Eliassen
Lou Zigzag showed he was riding a purple patch on Monday and that play continued today. Lou’s even par round was two shots clear of the kid himself Joe ‘SatNav’ Tynan while Jim ‘Houdini’ Bell was a further two shots back.
David Hamilton and Francis Goyons split the rollover ‘2’s pot.
Friday, Dec. 3, Mt. Shadow – Stableford
1st Colm Mullen (15) 34pts
2nd Jean-Paul Gasser (9) 31pts
3rd Kevin Mcentee (6) 30pts
1st Jim Bell (21) 31pts
2nd Lou Szigligeti (20) 30pts
3rd Mike Jeffreys (17) 29 pts
It is not unusual that the field was challenged by Mountain Shadow (formerly known as Natural Park) and no one matched their handicap. While the course only measures an unthreatening 6276 yards, it is tree lined to an extent unique on the Eastern Seaboard and sports a quartet of devilish par 5s. It is considered the most difficult par 72 in the area.
Tenacity and perseverance can count for a lot on a course like this and those were the attributes displayed by Irishman Colm Mullen as he bested A Flight and the field with 34 points. Jean-Paul Grasser continues to impress, coming second today, with Co. Offaly’s Kevin Mcentee filling the flight
It was even less dramatic in the minor flight; Jim Houdini Bell taking the flight with a mere 31 points. The man in form Lou Zigzag collected the silver, as the consistent Mike Jeffreys claimed the bronze in a three-way tie with Pierre the ‘Magician’ and the out of tune ‘Elvis’ Kubas
Colm and Kevin added a ‘2’ apiece to their winnings along with Christy ‘Good’ Knight.
