Shotsaver Pairs at Prestbury Golf Club.
Maxitours visited wonderful Prestbury Golf Club today. There were plenty of refreshing April showers to prevent the full field of competitors from overheating.
Shotsaver Golf GPS systems kindly sponsored todays Maxitours event and they again offered participants the opportunity to try their marvellous product on the course ‘I don’t want one of them cheating machines’ said John Farnsworth seriously ‘when I play golf I play much better when I don’t know where I’m going’.
As we all know golf is a great game and can be enjoyed by the young and the old. ‘Old’ Rob Weston from Knutsford was let down this morning when his regular partner awoke with a bad back. Things improved when a twelve year old Prestbury junior came to the rescue. ‘Young’ Matthew Delaney was ‘a credit to his parents’ the lovely lad has a great swing and will hopefully have many happy years ahead of him on the links.
It was great to see Jason Waite playing in his first event since last summer, the likeable Tytherington man only enjoys golf in the sunshine and today he was very concerned about getting his hair wet. Jason returned last week from a trip of a lifetime when he went to Augusta to watch Bubba win the Masters, in fact if you have a spare morning he will happily tell you all about it.
The world of sport has produced many successful sibling pairings, Venus and Serena, Bobby and Jack Charlton, Eduardo and Franscesco Molinari to name but a few. Unfortunately Malcolm and Graham Brownhill do not fit into this category and the two Chorlton brothers continued their string of very average performances with just 36 points today.
Two all time Manchester United greats Frank Stapleton and Stuart Pearson were feared by defenders throughout the country when they were at the pinnacle of their footballing careers. Nowadays they are becoming feared on the local golfing stage as they recorded another solid performance with a 43 point score in the worst of the testing conditions.
Glamourous Sale ladies Moira Forster and Elaine Sloane produced a gutsy performance in the wet morning conditions and they also scored a fine 43 points. Ten handicap Forster birdied the tough 12th and charismatic Sloane made a monumental three on the long 9th hole.
Chris Cyprus and Paul Dalby from Didsbury finished in second place due to a better last three holes, it was around the turn however when three handicap Dalby really turned on the style playing holes 7 to 11 in a tremendous three under par.
Winning todays event were Maxitours regulars Darren Whittaker and Ian King. After a poor Winter season without a top three finish, the two Bramall men finally got it together scoring 43 points with a stronger back nine. Fireman Whittaker has plenty of time to practice between blazes, however it was King who set the course alight with a magical birdie on the last hole to narrowly take first place.
Thanks to Sponsors Steven and Jason Ballard from Shotsaver thanks to everyone who played today in such great spirits.
