Results from terrific Prestbury
A warm refreshing breeze greeted eighty eight of the most intelligent Maxitours golfers who gathered at the superb Prestbury Golf course today.
These guys new the weather was a gamble, however the threat of putting up the Christmas decorations, or even worse- Christmas shopping with the wife- meant a healthy field assembled in this exclusive corner of Cheshire .
For the first three hours the weather was thoroughly pleasant however an intense downpour at 2.30pm flooded the greens and the event was reduced to 12 holes. Paul Hodgson looked like a drowned rat as he came off the course but the Stoke-on-Trent man was still smiling after a great round saw him finish 4th alongside scratch player Bobby Aston.
Andy Stubbens was absolutely delighted to find a chocolate angel in his advent calendar this morning and his day just kept getting better as he made back to back birdies on 18th and 1st to earn third place playing alongside the nicest man from Bollington, Alan Pengally.
Dave Keen is an excellent Boeing 737 pilot for Thomas Cook Airlines but always finds it a struggle landing his jet in the wind. Today however he was on autopilot and his ball flew majestically through the breeze as he teamed up with co pilot Ian King to take second place with 29 points. This was Keen’s highest ever Maxitours finish. Despite losing his house, car and life savings as the Thomas Cook share prices plummeted recently Dave was still thrilled to win a Srixon carry bag.
Andy Adshead is the top Bank Manager at the Royal Bank of Scotland in Macclesfield and he turned up nice and early to prepare for his round. ‘Do you want to pay for your partner as well?’ I asked nicely as he checked in. ‘No, he can pay for himself- I’m really trying to cut down on my lending at the moment’ said a worried looking Adshead. His Partner and client was the likeable 2 handicapper Mark Richardson and he birdied 5 of his twelve holes as they scored a terrific 32 points and take first place. Well played Guys!
Many thanks to everyone who played today, despite the late rain everyone seemed to really enjoy the day.
