Fergus Brennan started off this Monday in exactly the same way as he started off Monday the week before by winning a golf competition.  On Tuesday and Thursday our resident lady golfer and pool table hustler must have felt she had won the lottery by taking first place on both days, beating the same golfer Jim McNeill into second place on both occasions.  I bet Jim was feeling how unfair life can be at times.Monday, June 24, Crystal Bay – StablefordThe scene for Fergus Brennan’s triumph on Monday was Crystal Bay (A and B courses).  He seemed to have left his shanking nightmare at home for the second week running and managed to rack up an impressive 37pts on his way to the top of the pile.  Jim Cooper did his best to catch him but had to settle for second on 36pts and Ted Senior took third spot on 35.Mod Chaviraksa. 1st Fergus Brennan (13) 37pts2nd Jim Cooper (16) 36pts3rd Ted Senior (14) 35ptsTuesday, June 26, Eastern Star – StablefordOn Tuesday it was on to Eastern Star and our own eastern star Mod Chaviraksa, who looks as though a stiff breeze will blow her off course, kept the wind at her back and sailed into first place on 32pts.  Jim McNeill stalled a little but still managed to get the runners up berth on 30 and David Booth, who has the air of a nautical officer, was demoted to the rank of cabin boy and took third place on 28.1st Mod Chaviraksa (12) 32pts2nd Jim McNeill (16) 30pts3rd David Booth (14) 28ptsThursday it was off to Phoenix (Ocean and Lakes) and Mod Chaviraksa rose again from the ashes to fire her way to the winner’s podium, this time destroying the course as well as the opposition by storming to 39pts and fame and glory.Jim McNeill’s challenge disappeared in a puff of smoke although he did put together an impressive 38pts.  Roger Wilkinson was smoking when he found out he was only third on 37.1st Mod Chaviraksa (12) 39pts2nd Jim McNeill (16) 38pts3rd Roger Wilkinson (12) 37ptsNote:  If you would like to play a round of golf with the TRGG, please phone Fergus Brennan on 086 056 7019 or pop into the Ned Kelly Bar in Soi Lengkee and add your name to the weekly lists, which are posted on the notice board.last_img
