Maxitours Legh Arms Classic at Prestbury Results

There was not a cloud in the sky as millionaire Jimmy O’Reilly drilled his second hand Pro v1 down the beautifully manicured Prestbury fairway to get the fantastic Legh Arms Classic underway today.

Playing partners Carl Kennedy and Joe York set the early pace with a wonderful 44 points. ‘I’ve got this great new warrant card’ said York who has started training to be a policeman, ‘it gets me free public transport and meals in Macdonalds, Subway and Pizza Hut- does it get me any Maxitours discount?’ ‘NO’ replied the organiser.

The Prestbury course described by many as ‘The Augusta of the North’ was in immaculate condition, however last weeks winners Holmes and Breirley found the Azaleas and Creek more than once on their way to a very average 36 points.

Martin Worthington’s fortunes have changed after finding a new Maxitours partner, (the gifted Keith Massey) and he recorded a second successive top 5 finish after rolling in a 12 foot putt for a superb birdie on the last hole for 43 points.

Over Seventy years ago two major events happened, Peter Hargreaves was born and Lancashire won the County Championship . Since then Lancashire never won the championship and Peter never won a Maxitours prize. Today all that changed Lancashire beat Somerset to take the crown and Peter held his nerve scoring a gutsy par on the last hole as he and Brian Atherton won a superb pair of socks with a great back nine.

Jonathon Davies is a scratch golfer who is trying to pursue an acting career, today he did a great impression of a European tour golfer as he rolled in six birdies on his was to 42 points and sixth place playing alongside Rod Stewart lookalike Paul Bradley.

Moby Rawthore continued his rich vein of form as he eagled the first hole on his way to a best of the day outward nine of 25 points playing with Amjad Butt, however a general lack of fitness saw some heavy breathing and tired swings on the undulating back nine, and the two likeable characters lost out on a back nine card play off.

The strong pairings of Scott Arnold and Guds Ahmed, and Dave Garner and Brian Hill were also in the prizes after playing some great golf.

Many thanks to Pete Myers owner of The Legh Arms for his very kind sponsorship today.
