*final week for Carden Park entries(18th+19th August)-go on treat ya self!
Maxitours at The Tytherington Club
The balmy British summer continued as temperatures once again reached well into the 80’s. This meant that excellent Tytherington was playing shorter than usual and the lovely course and facilities were enjoyed by all.
At Muirfield the early morning scores were much better than later in the day and this was mirrored in todays event. The Mediterranean sun firmed up the greens and sapped energy from the less fit players on the tour. Only Jim Rymer looked cool after preparing for the heat by clean shaving both his legs late last night.
Max Henderson(10) has struggled with his game in recent weeks. Things reached an all time low when he lost 2 balls in the ball washer during a recent round. Today he played wonderful golf and enjoyed three birdies in just five holes to help his team into 5th place. PC Ben Trotter(6) and Hale property tycoons John Hilditch(12) and Iain Bartholomew (4) made up the rest of the team.
Wealthy Bill Parkinson(11) owns Moorhouses Brewery and he flew in for today’s event from his holiday home at LakeNona. He is also a golf member at the Florida resort alongside the likes of Tiger Woods and Graeme McDowell. He was brought back to reality as he played alongside team mate Barry Rigby(17) Ian Nelson(21) and Ted Ellis(12)who flew down the M6 from Chorley Golf Club to play with him today. A magnificent par at the last from Ted secured fourth position for this senior team with 83 points.
Mark O’Meara, Tom Lehman, Miguel Jimenez, John Stubbs(18), John Royle(16), Guy Hall(10) and Keith Coxon(9) also turned back their body clocks today and played stunning golf to feature near the top of a leaderboard. The decrepit Sale men were delighted with 84 points and 3rd place.
Top tour caddy James Baker landed struggling Simon Dyson’s bag just 16 days ago and he has really helped the blond haired Yorkshireman turn around his season after two great weeks. Today he also helped turn around his teams fortunes after a magnificent run of threes on the front nine. Howard Baker(17), James Davidson(13) and Nigel Speake(15) were the other members of the Tytherington team which finished second.
Taking top honours today were the Didsbury team of Bob Vickers(7), Phil Sharp(18), Malc Wells(4) and Adam Hart(7). Hart was the star of the show and he picked up 7 shots for his team after playing his 5 tough shot holes in a magnificent two under par. Well played!
Somebody thought they had spotted Lord Lucan today but there was certainly no sightings of Dave Chambers in the bar after he recorded his first ever hole in one on the 5th hole. Congratulations on your terrific shot Dave!
Many thanks for your continued support today, I hope you enjoyed the sun. Tim.
ps a nice watch was found on the 3rd hole-it is in Tytherington lost property.
