Maxitours at Stockport www.designerradiatorsdirect.com AM AM
Day one of the fantastic two day AM AM at Stockport and Sandiway saw well over 100 competitors playing the superb Stockport Golf Club in lovely warm bright conditions.
Overnight rain had left some Saharan sand deposits on players cars which arrived from the African desert on the warm Southerly wind. Iain Perkins added a bit more sand to the atmosphere as he struggled to get out of the bunker on the 16th.
Head Golf Pro Gary Norcott advised us before play that there may be the odd wet patch on the course but Maxitours players found the exact opposite and they were very impressed with the Cheshire gem. Big Jim Driscoll said that there were no occasions when he saw any casual water. ‘He’s carrying so much weight on a dry day he can take his normal stance in the car park and water comes over his shoes’ remarked playing partner Frank Massey.
In today’s event the benign conditions saw some excellent golf. Colin Lynch usually only gets a Maxitours mention due to the fact he has a salmon pink Ferrari, his Lambourghini driving son sponsored today’s event and this inspired the cheerful Lancastrian to play some of the best golf of his career. Teaming up alongside Lewis Birch and Adam Swarbrick they took the daily prize with a solid 85 points.
Talented Colin is with another team tomorrow and so unfortunately he is ineligible for the main 36 hole prize.
In pole position is the Des Kelly team from Poulton Park with 84 points, Dave Blood’s team from Denton is in second place with 82 points. Swinton Park ’s Pete O’Neill and Eddy Sterling from Wychwood Park have ordered their teams to have an early night as they are just four shots off the early pace.
Colin Roberts Alsager team (76 points) face a sleepless night as they attempt to win the seniors prize tomorrow.
Bob Sutton and Ron Sloanes teams nearly made Maxitours history by failing to make the cut but due to the new Maxitours 20 shot rule (within 20 shots of the leaders) they narrowly made the grade.
