Maxitours Shotsaver Classic at amazing Conwy
An absolutely stunning day greeted the Maxitours competitors who travelled to Wales for this Shotsaver sponsored Pairs event.
John Stubbs has had some unlikely success with his golf in recent weeks, however off the course his team still think he is ‘slowly losing it’. Today he arrived at Conwy later than planned as he couldn’t find his specially made insoles. ‘I searched high and low in the house, I even emptied the bin to see if I had put them in there!’ Playing partner John Royle arrived to pick him up and suggested he might actually be wearing them. ‘I couldn’t believe it- that was the last place I thought of looking’ said the highly paid retired police Detective.
The greens at Conwy were true and fast, Andy Blake the new pro at Conwy is a great lad and he is doing a terrific job. He told me the story of a recent visitor who asked if it was possible to buy ‘slow rolling golf balls’ as she found the Championship greens were too quick for her fast rolling balls.
The terrific conditions and forward tees should have led to excellent scoring however tricky pin placements and firm approaches meant that just 40 points good enough to take first place.
The Knutsford Golf Club steward Ian Greenough(14) and his talented wife Anne (5)cooked up an excellent 5th place finish with 37 points. This was one short of the experienced Stuart Hilditch(5) and Dave Aden(9). They showed their guile as they teamed up well to score 38 points. Three birdies in the space of four holes on the back nine saw the white haired pairing come home in a wonderful 21 points.
Dave Antrobus(8) usually hits his tee shots wider than a Wayne Rooney corner kick. Today they were arrow straight as he made the most of the fast running fairways. A strong back nine from the on-form Dave Stanhope(12) saw the Vale Royal men take 3rd place.
Pete Hall(3) won the Poulton club championship for a record 6th time on Sunday, today he narrowly missed out on a Martin Kaymer like double when he teamed up with Nick Fletcher(7) to finish second with 40 points.
Taking todays honours was Ashton on Mersey duo Alex Baguley(2) and Dave Hillier(8). Talented Baguley narrowly missed out on winning the Cheshire Matchplay earlier this year when he was beaten in a close semi final. Today his hard work was rewarded with perhaps the biggest win of his career. Well played!
