The Shotsaver Open at terrific Vale Royal
‘Those are the best greens I have played on all year’ said golf mad Neville Dennis who plays on at least four different courses each week. Nearly every fourball commented on the green keepers superb presentation of this lovely Cheshire course.
Maxitours regular Dave Antrobus is a member at Vale Royal and today he was delighted to set a new club record when he consumed 3 large bowls of chips on completion of his round. Dave doesn’t even need to place an order as whenever he entered the clubhouse the barmaids wink at him and ask ‘the usual large bowl, Dave?’.
Warren Newton is known as the Prince Harry of Bramall Golf Club due to his boyish looks and the large number of tricky situations he finds himself in on the course. Today he stayed on the straight and narrow, teaming up with Alex Elliott he scored a terrific 44 points.
Andy Stubbens plays with an x-stiff tour shaft in his driver, he hits his regular shaft better but found he needed something with a little more torque as regular shafts are too easy to snap over his knee after a bad shot. The big hitting ex marine teamed up with Steve Rhodes to score an excellent 44 points and they took the early lead.
Bill Ross and Pete Tinkler, Mike Kulik and Jeff Chapman, Keith Massey and Martin Worthington also scored 44 points as the top of the star studded leader board started to look a little crowded.
Sean Mills and Tom Cartwright, two talented Vale Royal members, were drafted in off the practice putting green at the last minute due to a late cancellation. The 4 and 5 handicap players made the most of their local knowledge as they played tremendous golf to take first place with an impressive 47 points and a three shot victory, well played lads.
It was great to see Dave Madeley my old sponsor playing today. Dave is a really terrific bloke who I will always be in debt to as he was a massive help earlier in my career, but he can occasionally have a short fuse on the golf course. Dave’s Ping Zing putter has had the pleasure of being thrown at some of the best courses in the world.
Neil Ritchie won the straightest drive award on the 15th hole, he was close to tears as he watched his best drive of the day hit the marker post in the middle of the fairway and come hurtling back towards him.
Many thanks to Ian and his terrific team at Vale Royal for their help in making the day such a great success. A big thank you also to our sponsors Steven and Jason Ballard from Shotsaver for their superb continued support.
Thanks for playing today, I really hope you enjoyed your day.
