Maxitours Shotsaver singles at Knutsford.
The recent damp weather has shut many local courses however the delightful and well draining Knutsford golf course was never in danger of being closed, indeed it was presented in tremendous condition by its team of hard working greenkeepers.
‘This is the wettest drought I’ve ever bloody known’ said Neville Dennis as he put on his waterproofs ready to start the days play. The clouds soon lifted and conditions improved as everyone who sensibly ignored the weather forecast had an enjoyable day.
Terry Davison loves telling jokes, even if they are not very funny. Today, on more than one occasion, he enjoyed coming out with the Old classic ‘the back nine is much harder than the front nine’ as he referred to the beautiful nine hole Knutsford course.
In todays exciting final event of the season John Reilly struggled in the early part of his round, a fighting back nine saw him secure the Shotsaver S430 Order of Merit by just two points from his good friend Jimmy O’Reilly. John has been an ever present on Maxitours this year and this seven handicapper has a terrific fighting spirit which makes him such a great competitor, very well played John.
Frank Garvey and Sean Reilly continued their strong finish to the season as they finished second and third respectively, honours of the day went to six handicapper Guds Ahmed. Guds has struggled all season due to his exciting lifestyle, however he is getting back to his flambouyant best on the golf course and a solid level par back nine earned him first place with 38 points.
