Results from ‘The Wilson Classic’ at Immaculate Prestbury Golf Club
Over 100 competitors teed off in the Wilson Masters at immaculate Prestbury Golf Club today. There is nothing worse than playing golf in hot sticky summer conditions and the refreshing Northern drizzle was really welcomed by all the players.
‘Can I pick up some golf balls my pal won last week? asked shrewd multimillionaire businessman Colin Lynch. ‘Certainly – I forgot let him know he also won a titleist glove-what size is he?’ I replied
‘Err, think he will need an ML’ replied the medium large handed Lynch, just a little too quickly. On the course Lynch birdied the 15th, topped his tee shot and duffed his second before holing a six iron for a second consecutive birdie on the 16th, he then made another birdie on the 17th ! This stunning finish was good enough for 8th place and he wins a medium large glove.
Britain has recently enjoyed a huge few days of partying, first the nation celebrated ‘the Neville Dennis reaching 75 weekend’ and then the Queen enjoyed her Jubilee.
Continuing the Jubilee theme it has been suggested 71 year old Cliff Richard could be slightly past his best, Seamus Keegan from Didsbury is actually getting better with age and he finished 2nd with 44 points playing alongside Wayne Nuttall.
Elton John lookalike Brian Hopkins holed a terrific eight iron on the 6th hole to earn five points on that particular hole and playing alongside Charles Herbert their 43 points finished 3rd.
Kylie Minogue lookalike Carl Kennedy partnering Dom McHugh made tremendous birdies on the 14th and 16th to finish in 7th position.
Alex Rugen and Tony Crook from Leigh Golf Club both have a look of Tom Jones and they eventually took the honours with a solid 45 point haul, both players contributed 9 times in a real team effort, very well played chaps.
Ex Grandstand trophy winner Alan Clough from Cheadle Hulme hit his tee shot within two feet of the hole on Prestburys signature 17th hole, unfortunately he missed out on sweep balls as he left his putt short, ‘it was uphill’ said the likeable motocross champion ‘at least it will win nearest the pin’. As Alan knows sport at this incredibly high level can be cruel and David Coyle in the penultimate match to nearly holed his tee shot as he put his ball within 2 inches to snatch nearest the pin, and leave Cloughie absolutely devastated.
Many thanks to the legendary Malcolm Thorniley from Wilson Golf for kindly sponsoring todays event and providing such excellent prizes.
