Yui scores a hat-trick


PSC golf from Lewiinski’s

Sunday, July 3, Green Valley – Stableford

A Flight

1st Yui Bietry (9) 36 pts

2nd Peter Henshaw (17) 35 pts

B Flight

1st Eddie Delaney (27) 41 pts

2nd Sim Davis (27) 38 pts

Near Pins:  No 4 Eddie Delaney, No 9 Yui Bietry, No 12 Yui Bietry, No 16 Yui Bietry.

Despite some excellent point totals, the story of the day was Yui Bietry and her 36 point A Flight winning total.  Yui played for the first time as a single figure handicap player and her card contained three near pins and three 2s.  Yui also collected 10,000 baht from her other half Pierre as he had promised to if she ever achieved this fete.

Peter Henshaw (hold it Peter in A Flight? – well I never) was a far cry happier than Nick Unsworth as the resulting count-back left him satang less at sea level.

Eddie Delaney, whose accomplishments have been lauded in this column numerous times, made another marked move on his handicap with a scintillating 41 points for the man of the match and junior flight honours.  His effort overshadowed the fine showing of the society’s first lady Sim ‘card’ Davis (Ha, I told you so last week).

Back at Lewiinski’s Yui rang the bell but the party mood was brought to an abrupt halt as we learned of the sudden death back in the UK of long time society member Gavin Knox.  Gavin was a friend to all and will be deeply missed especially by his long time pal Irishman Colm Mullen.  Our thoughts are with Gavin’s family, R.I.P. mate.

Tuesday, July 4, Crystal Bay A&B – Stableford

1st Keith McLachlan (24) 42pts

2nd Gordon Wallace (15) 40pts

3rd Ian Wilson (18) 34pts

Keith McLachlan knew the round was out there, it just hadn’t been answering the call.  Well it heard him today as he scorched the course with a sparkling 42 points.  Every bit of that scorching was required as Gordon Wallace was but two stokes adrift that saw him take the silver.

Ian Wilson, Joe Sat Nav Tynan and Ed’ the right honorable’ Wyckoff were locked in a mortal count-back as Ian filled the flight and Joe and Ed were in a daze.

Nick Unsworth scoped the 2’s pot with the only one of the day.

Wednesday, July 6, St. Andrews – Stableford

1st Nick Unsworth (15) 42pts

2nd Gordon Wallace (15) 39pts

3rd Colin Davis (14) 38pts

Nick Unsworth put a 42 points pasting on Desmond Muirhead’s Magnum Opus, here on the Eastern Seaboard.  That was three clear of the silver expert Gordon Wallace with a splendid 39 point haul.  The Donkey nosed his way to the bronze a further stroke back, “he haw” he also carted off the only ‘2’ of the day.

Welshman Mike Jeffreys and Keith McLachlan both carded a very creditable 37 points

Friday, July 8, The Emerald – Stableford

A Flight

1st Jimmy Day (16) 41pts

2nd Don Lehmer (16) 38pts

B Flight

1st Peter Henshaw (17) 38pts

2nd Ian Wilson (18) 34pts

Somebody woke Co. Wicklow’s Jimmy Day up!  Jimmy managed a lower podium finish in several efforts went off like a bomb at everybody’s favorite the Emerald as he left the field three shots clear!  History suggests that the consistency of the fairway lie can help the higher handicapper find the grove and Jimmy certainly did this day.  He left the lower podium place to Don ‘I’m getting married in the morning’ Lehmer.

Peter ‘I’m on a run’ Henshaw made it an Irish rout as his 38 points was good for top spot in the lower division.  New member Ian Wilson, who made his first society debut with a 10 point masterpiece at Treasure Hills last Friday, emerged from a three way count-back smelling of roses at the expense of long time members Jim ‘Houdini Bell’ and the consistent Keith McLachlan.

Don Lehmer, Ed Wyckoff, Bill Brochard and Peter Henshaw shared the 2’s pot.
