Maxitours Wilson Classic at Worsley

A full field of Maxitours Competitors turned out for today’s Wilson sponsored Am Am at wonderful Worsley, there were no cancellations or ‘no shows’ so many thanks for your tremendous integrity and support.

Congratulations to the green staff for presenting the course to such a very high standard, there were plenty of compliments throughout the day from our players. Everyone at this lovely Club made us feel very welcome indeed

Paul Baxter blamed his poor performance today on his failure to adapt to the climate. ‘In the world cup it’s the South American teams doing well. It’s the South Manchester teams who’ll play well here today. I’m a lot better playing in cooler North Manchester latitude conditions’ explained the Hopwood man to anyone who was bored enough to listen.

After England’s ‘below par’ performance at this year’s World Cup travelling England fan Des Kelly cancelled his tickets. He wanted to stay well away from the beaches of Brazil but ended up in plenty of sand as his ball regularly found the bunkers at Worsley Golf Club.

Dave Antrobus is now known as the ‘Luis Suarez of Maxitours.’ For 99% of the time dieting Dave is a lovely mild mannered man, however when he gets the smell of a bacon sandwich he just can’t help himself and when he thinks nobody is watching he can often be found crazily chomping on a bap in the corner of the clubhouse.

Messi is starting to set the world Cup alight. Football experts have claimed his low centre of gravity helps him to turn makes him such a great player. Pie loving Rob Hand’s centre of gravity has got lower in recent years however this has not helped his golf and his team struggled to a 25th place finish.

In today’s event the fast running fairways and reachable par fives ensured some excellent scoring on this short but superbly designed course. Northenden’s Ian Broughan(5) and his team of Chris McKane(13), John Parkin(10) and Gary Furlong(4) finished 3rd with an excellent 87 points.

Ray Ward(15) and Geoff Cogswell(18) have not played much golf in recent weeks however the fast running fairways and a few lucky bounces helped the likeable Lancastrians into 2nd place alongside Gary Garner(6) and his green keeper son Jordan(16).

In last year’s Worsley event forgetful Keith Fitzhenry(14) could be seen opening his boot and scratching his head when he discovered he had left his clubs at home. He was delighted with himself when remembered to bring his clubs this morning. Today he did however forget what a bad golfer he usually is and was surprised to play some wonderful golf as he inspired his team to a marvellous 89 point haul and a first win of the year. Playing partners Richard Palmer(12), Mick Mahon(21) and Frank Hindle (14) have all spent years in the doldrums without any success however after much heartache and perseverance things have incredibly improved this season. (Are you listening Roy Hodgson?) Well played chaps.

Alsager’s Dave Marchant, Bob Sinclair, John Rigby and Jeff Andrews were delighted to take the over 60’s title today with 84 points.

Many thanks to Wilson Golf for their kind sponsorship of today’s event.
