Results from magnificent Pleasington
The magnificent Pleasington Golf Course was presented in tremendous condition for this the first event of the Maxitours Summer season. The fast, smooth and true greens were really enjoyed by all 92 Maxitours players. Many thanks to the excellent greens staff for their professional work.
The Summer Tour officially started today and we new we were in for a great days golf when Colin Lynch revved his way into the Pleasington car park in his black Ferrari California (this car is only used by Colin in the summer months when extreme fine weather is forecast.) After playing some great golf recently Colin was delighted to pick up a pair of black Footjoy socks, but a white Taylor Made visor was not so warmly received ‘haven’t you got a black one to match my Ferrari?’ asked a disappointed Colin.
Big Phil Cogswell was out in the third match today, this talented musician plays keyboard at various venues across the UK in his band called ‘Crash.’ Phil’s claim to fame is once appearing on ‘Top of the Pops’ in the 70’s. Today Phil’s golf was hitting all the wrong notes as he popped and topped his way around the tricky heathland course. Phil also nearly caused a major ‘crash’ as his hooked tee shot clattered off the railway tracks bordering the 5th hole narrowly missing the 9.15 to Burnley .
Dave Stanhope turned up today with a really nasty eye infection and bumped into several chairs as he stumbled into the Pleasington Golf Club lounge barely able to see where he was going. Dave has worked hard and spent thousands of pounds seeking perfection in his golf swing however he appeared very alarmed to find himself playing his best golf today despite the fact he could see neither the hole, nor the ball, nor his club.
Retired policeman John Stubbs is desperate to win some balls and enters in the 2’s sweep each week, unfortunately he very often returns to the Clubhouse upset, shaking and with tears in his eyes after ‘missing a string of birdie putts on the short holes’. Today the likeable 64 year old Sale member decided the simplest and least stressful way to make a two was on a par five and he holed his 3 wood to record that the rareist of birds-an Albatross- on Pleasington’s beautiful 7th hole. Congratulations on your wonderful achievement John!
Sean Reilly and Paul Bradley had a poor start to their round however an excellent back nine saw them record 44 points and a solid third place. Joe Leech and talented Pleasington member Tariq Aziz matched that score but Tariqs magnificent chip to save par on the 18th hole was enough to secure second place.
First place went to Steve Rourke and the on-form Moby Rawthore from Sale GC. It was a real team effort however the highlight of their round was when Rourke chipped in on the tough 13th hole as he became perhaps the scruffiest looking golfer ever to win on Maxitours.
Many thanks for your support of todays event, I hope you enjoyed this great venue.
