The Maxitour Classic AM AM at Hazel Grove
The Autumn heatwave hit Stockport today and nearly 100 Maxitours competitors enjoyed the sunshine as they played the challenging Hazel Grove golf course.
Life long Stoke City fans John Grint and Brian Mottram were delighted to score 85 points and also see their team shock Manchester United at the weekend, ‘Stoke should have won 4-2 easy and we could have had a really, really great score today’. Yes and if my auntie had…
Alf Shillitoe had to find a late stand in after his long term partner Lewis Marland had his car stolen last night. Alf then played his best golf all year ‘I thought for a long time Lewis puts me off when I play with him and now I know he does’.
Reports came in this week about a frustrated Didsbury member who hooked three tee shots in the Mersey on their second hole, he then proceeded to launch his driver over the fence into the river, such was the fury in the throw the club actually reached the far bank. The member then asked a kind passing cyclist if he could throw it back, this time the club didn’t quite reach and splashed into the river before drifting off to sea.
Back in todays event the Bramall team set the early pace with a great 86 points, handicap Secretary Mike Spencer tried hard not to look surprised as his 20 foot putt on the last dropped into the hole to pick up a vital three points.
The high quality team of Rich Pickard, Jonny Davies, Guds Ahmed and Scott Arnold contained three players off plus handicaps, they also scored 86 points after a great display to secure second place.
The honours eventually went to Martin Worthington and Keith Massey from Ormskirk who teamed up with 2 local boys, Hazel Grove Club Champion Frazer Macleod and Luke Elwers. The team picked up 11 shots on the back nine as plus one handicapper Macleod showed his true class.
Many thanks to all players for supporting todays event.
