Green Valley

Another good turnout for a Sunday at green Valley, the course looking good ready for next weeks Singha Championship. Starting on time all groups got away quickly, a bit too quick as it turned out when we got to the 2nd tee there were 4 groups on the same hole, This slowly stretched it’s self out with the only wait’s on the par 3’s. peter Lenoury & Tony Fay playing together both birdied the 1st, 4 points each and one can only go downhill from there and so it did. Peter pulled it back to turn in 21 pts but it slipped away again. All the best scores were in B flight with Francis Bathurt coming out on top with 43 pts. 23 on the front and 20 pts back with no blob’s, Gary Emmett had a solid 20 pts each side beating Stan smith on countback on the last 3 holes. Francis playing partner J.P. Maffray managed to steal 1st place in A flt with 35 pts with Fred Birch having one of the many 34 pts along with the luckless Peter Lenoury.

The near pins were claimed by Francis Bathurt, John Deardon, Aidan Murray & Ian Pickles & the Long Putt by Tony Fay

The 1st group out mogens Jensen, Torben Lindgaard, Tony Fay & Stan Smith and they set the pace and the scoring for the rest of the field, Mogen’s on a mission spent the whole of the weekend watching the golf channel and it certainly paid off 42 pts & Stan Smith not far behind with 40 pts. The next group Stuart Brown,  Asger Levin, Barry Oats & Dave Nicolson. Barry was the best of this group with 35 pts. Then the 3 ball of Alistair Gall, Pete Shaw & Per Aschant, Alistair and Pete Battled it out in a tight match with Pete 39pts and Alistair 38pts with a near pin each and Alistair with the long putt.

Then on the back it was disaster at the start for everyone with all messing up the tee shots, But Asger with 3 off the tee putting it 100 yds from the green and a gap wedge to the back of the green and knocking in the putt for an easy par, This spured him on to finish with another 20 pts on the back, The Donkey and Nigel both slipped back with the Donkey16 pts with 3 blobs & Nigel 15 pts and 2 blobs to both finish on 38 pts. The next group john Harrison,Paul West & Mogen’s Jensen all struggled with John 32 pts,Paul 31 pts & Mogen’s 30 pts.
