Shadow – StablefordA Flight1st Peter Hynard (12) 33pts2nd JP Maffray (13 33ptsB Flight 1st Rod Brown (19) 33pts2nd Colin Davis (18) 32ptsIt was back to the imposing Mountain Shadow on Friday, an especially daunting challenge when embellished by rain, and the scores reflected it.  And the brave group pressed on through local downpours to play the round.Peter ‘The Right Honorable’ Hynard and Rod Brown in A Flight and B Flight respectively were co-men of the match.  Peter’s job in A Flight was made a little harder than Rod’s, as he needed the help of a favorable count back over the man on fire JP Maffray as both were locked on 33 points.Well I wish this sentence was about how one of the society’s nice guys Mike ‘the Welsh Wizard’ Jeffreys beat the Donkey in a count back for the B Flight silver.  But if you have read this column before, you know that good guys seldom beat the Donkey.With that thought vanquished, all that remains is the antics of a certain Irishman, Fergus O’Brien.  Fergus managed to collect just 3 points on the front nine, but fair play to Fergus as he stuck to his game and added another 13 points to total sixteen points.  Nothing to write home about except that Fergus carded the only ‘2’ of the day which gave him the rollover ‘2’s pot.  Only Fergus could manage that.Note:  Lewiinski’s is situated on Pattaya Land Soi 1, Beach Road Soi 13/3 near to Walking Street.  Anyone wishing to play with us just pop in and add your name to the list or call Colin on 089 826 0764.  Transport is provided.last_img
