Maxitours at lovely Prestbury
Another full field enjoyed the wonderful Prestbury Golf course in todays Maxitours event.
Prestbury’s fairways and greens were in really immaculate condition despite heavy overnight rain. They were holding a well struck iron shot and yet rolling incredibly fast and true.
Even big Colin Byrne managed to get a little bit of backspin on the par three 17th hole.
At least two of his playing partners definitely saw Colins bottom lip tremble slightly as his ball pitched by the flag on the 17th hole and spun 70 feet down the hill towards the picturesque babbling brook.
Wayne Rooney was delighted to return from international duty just in time to give Colleen a quick kiss on the cheek before hurrying up to his room to watch today’s golf. He was disappointed to be substituted late on last night and things went from bad to worse as he witnessed Paul Dalby struggling to make a double bogey on the short par four fourteenth. Bob Sinclair brought a smile to his face soon after with his classy four point birdie.
Liverpudlian Chris Murphy must be great player. The top car park was full except for an space coned off for a large delivery vehicle to access the course for some urgent maintenance work. Phil thought the cones were put there to reserve his very own car parking space. The irate greenkeeper was non too happy, ‘who in the right mind would park there?’ he asked. ‘Calm down, calm down’ came the reply.
Seventy six year old Neville Dennis(15) rolled back the years and declared ‘watch out, I’m back’ after he played some terrific golf today. Neville finished 3rd scoring after 44 points playing alongside Rob Sinclair(10) . Martin Firth(8) teamed up with Macclesfields Steve Goodier(25) and they also scored 44 points with a slightly better back nine to take 2nd place.
Todays honours went to Josh Brand(3) and Pete Atherton(13) from Lymm. Three handicap Brand had a hot streak when he birdied the 8th and 9th before eagling the long 11th hole. Less talented playing partner Pete used his shots wisely to back up when required. Congratulations on your first win chaps!
Many thanks to all players for your tremendous support, I hope you had a great days on the links. Yours in golf, Tim
