A Flight

1st Yui Bietry (13) 37pts

2nd Alain Bellec (14) 37pts

Near Pins:  No 4 Jan Eriksen; No 9 Alain Bellec; No 12 Bob Newell; No 16 Barry Copestake.

The story of the day started in the clubhouse at Green Valley as the Donkey decided to give Yui not one, not two, but three shots to add to her 10 handicap, a more human side that the Donkey keeps to himself.

Yui has long shown a strong desire to play off the men’s (get your mind out of the gutter) tees and the extra shots came in handy, as she emerged from a three-way pile up to top the podium in the senior flight.  Alain Bellec claimed the silver with a non-counting hole on his card.

Barry ‘the boot’ Copstake, who has been on fire this month, finally ran out of steam, as he had a nightmare finish with non-counting holes on the 16th and 18th.  How different the headlines could have been.

The junior flight supplied the overhaul winner, John Dearden, with a nearly flawless score of 42 points but he managed one non-counting hole on the 16th.

Now one good turn deserves another right?  Well no, because the Donkey did not realize he had gone out a shot and his excellent 40 points was good only for the silver in the junior flight.  Had he remained a 15 handicapper he would have won the senior flight.

Yui Bietry, Nigel Jones, Eddy Beilby and Maurice Copan shared the 2’s pot.

Back at Lewiinski’s and after a few sherbets had been shifted Colin sat in the corner in silence, as he thought he had well and truly shafted himself.

Tuesday, October 4, Greenwood – Stableford

1st Jan Eriksen (15) 42pts

2nd David Kirstuik (22) 39pts

3rd Ed Wyckoff (9) 36pts

Jan ‘the quiet one Eriksen’ did the best work on the day as evidenced by his 42 point lashing on the field.  The ‘quiet one’ in this form is lethal, watch out!  Jan’s score was three clear of Canada’s David Kirstuik.  Ed ‘our man in the Whitehouse’ Wyckoff was a further three stroke back to wrap up the flight.

There were two 2’s today and both belonged to the Ed Wyckoff.

Wednesday, October 5, Bangpra – Stableford

A Flight

1st Ian Halfpenny (12) 38pts

2nd Jan Eriksen (15) 32pts

B Flight

1st Mike Jeffreys (17) 33pts

2nd David Kirstuik (22) 31pts

A good sized field, took on the Japan Golf Promotion white tees at the tough and tricky Bangpra, and it must be said lost the battle, that is all but for Ian ‘lose change’ Halfpenny as he stood head and shoulders above the field as he put together a fine 38 points, for the man of the match and premier division honours.  Jan ‘the quite one’ Eriksen was again in the frame as he was six strokes adrift of Ian.  You were warned.

The junior flight found the greens very tricky as Mike ‘the Welsh Wizard’ needed just 33 points for the top spot.  This left Canadian David Kirstuik and Ireland’s Christy good Knight to fight it out for the silver on 31 points apiece, David gaining the verdict.

Nigel Jones slotted home the only ‘2’ of the day.

Friday, October 7, Treasure Hill – Stableford

A Flight

1st Paul Smith (7) 37pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (15) 35pts

3rd Eddy Beilby (14) 34pts

B Flight

1st Barry Oats (26) 35pts

2nd Ed Delaney (26) 34pts

3rd Gebi Kindle (21) 33pts

Although Fridays at Treasure Hill can be a traffic challenge, the risk is always worth it to play a most enjoyable layout.  The good sized field found it to be very tough, with only one player managing to solve the puzzle.

Paul Smith fashioned a very creditable 37 points for the man of the match and senior flight honors.  Paul was closely followed up the podium steps by Irishman Peter ‘Don O’corleone’ Henshaw and Eddy ‘the Eagle’ Beilby, who needed the aid of a count back over his good mate Barry ‘the Boot’

Skipping down to the junior flight, saw the Donkey’s mate Barry Oats carding a solid 35 points to take top spot.  Irishman Ed Delaney, no stranger to the pay window, and Liechtenstein’s very own Gebi Kindle stringed out in single digits and finished in that order.

Nigel ‘dead eye’ Jones matched the man in the Whitehouse’s Tuesday feat of two 2’s on the day which added up to three for the week.
