Results from Stunning Stockport

Maxitours results from Superb Stockport

It was another ‘day in a million’ for the full field of Maxitours competitors who turned up at Stockport Golf Club. Clear blue skies and barely a breath of wind meant a hugely enjoyable day was had by all.
‘Those greens are amazing for this time of year’ was the main sentiment echoing around the grand Stockport Clubhouse as the happy teams returned their cards.

I need to apologise to last weeks surprise winner and top bloke Howard Baker who was only referred to as ‘Baker’ in last weeks report (which mainly focused on his more talented partner Steve Lowe.) Today Howard was brought back down to earth as he had to settle for a lowly 27th place playing alongside Pete Cleaver.

Steve Roberts(5) played great golf when won the Cheshire Amateur Championship at Bromborough in 1981. After a successful business career away from golf he declared to his delighted partner Frank Gill on the 1st tee today that he had ‘come out of the wilderness and am back to playing my best’. Their 31 point haul was just good enough to earn them a top 50 finish. ‘He might have come out of the wilderness but his ball was certainly in it a lot today’ said a frustrated Gill.

Many quality golfers have played the beautiful Stockport course, indeed in the 1920’s Harry Braid, JH Taylor, Harry Vardon and Sandy Herd played an exhibition match at Stockport, between them they had won the Open Championship over 18 times! Bob Sutton, David Kelly, Jonty Geake and Dennis Bamford between them have won the Knutsford Tuesday morning roll up over twenty times. Today they had their own little exhibition match and there was a truly incredible variety of shots played by that particular four ball.

Scoring was tight in todays event and Mark Wheeler and Dave Murphy narrowly took fourth place ahead of Iain Bartholomew(3) and John Hilditch(11).

Ron Atkinson’s son in law, Ross Sellors(12), teamed up with John Buckley(11) from The Mere. Sellors parred his final four holes and his strong finish earned the Mere duo a career best 4th place.

Chris ‘also ran’ Hegarty(8) never delivers the goods. Today he teamed up with Cheshire haulage legend Rueben Fielding(12) who transported him around the course in style. Hegarty was really motoring and he incredibly birdied the 14th, 15th and 18th holes and the two top blokes drove off with second place.

Taking todays honours were Mark Kilgallon(16) and Brian Gibbons. Both players contributed 9 times in an excellent team effort, however Kilgallons birdie on the 17th really gave them some momentum after a slow start. Well played chaps!
