Another terrific field gathered at the prestigious Vale Royal Abbey Golf Course for the latest Maxitours event.
A slight early morning frost disappeared and the 100 competitors enjoyed the superb greens and well manicured fairways. Many thanks to the greens staff for their hard work and immaculate presentation.
‘I just couldn’t believe how dry the fairways are’ said Kenny Jepson, the deadly accurate and very likeable Mancunian who regularly hits 14 of them each round.
Manchester City have started to wobble like an MFI wardrobe recently as the possibility of winning the Premiership becomes a reality, in contrast John and Jimmy O’Reilly are enjoying the pressure of leading The Shotsaver Order of Merit and they stayed rock solid to record 82 points and a commendable 3rd place finish.
Bill Ross nearly threw his golf clubs in the Mere three weeks ago as his golf hit rock bottom, however 6th place last week saw the Scotsman win his first ever Maxitours prize. Today the more confident Scot played a major part in his teams 83 points, which was good enough for a second place finish.
Chorltons dream team welcomed back Gaz Hibbert who has not played recently due to family commitments. ‘He was a waste of time today- hopeless’ said lifelong friend and team mate Mike Lynch. ‘We would have won if he’d stayed at home and we had a decent player’ he added. Despite the in-fighting the team finished fourth with a well earned 80 points.
Ex football legends Stuart Pearson and Frank Stapleton just missed out on the prizes as their team finished with a solid 79 points for 5th place.
Last night Moby Rawthore was struggling for a final member of his team and he was recommended an improving Sale junior under the name of Ollie ‘Dick Turpin’ Bowden, the young 17 year old ‘putted like a pro’ according to his low handicap teammates and he was on the card 15 times helping his team score a phenomenal 89 points. A very large Maxitours handicap reduction has taken place.
Nearest the pin was won by sixty year old Ian Ainsworth as hit the five wood of his life and his ball finished 2 inches from the cup on the par three 6th hole. The only area of his game the six foot gentle giant needs to work on is disguising the look of surprise on his face after such a good shot.
Many thanks to all players for supporting todays fantastic event.
