Maxitours at Davenport Golf Club

Davenport was in lovely condition for today’s Maxitours event. Hard working Club Pro Tony Stevens runs a tight and very friendly ship and the staff, members, President and Captain all made us feel very welcome indeed.

John Stubbs was trying to be in positive mood before his round ‘my long game is hopeless but I think it’s slowly getting better, once that improves I really need to work on my short game’.

Ruel Spence and Jimmy Edwards have also struggled in recent events. They were delighted to finish in the middle of the field today. When Ruel was asked if his playing partner let him down ‘no, he was actually quite good in comparison to most weeks’ he commented.

The lovely Davenport course requires excellent course management and clever strategy. The narrow fairways and firm greens led to some very average scoring and a record low total of just 40 points was good enough for first place today.

Senior players enjoyed the fast running fairways and they featured strongly today. Young looking Ron Sloane(19) and the less fresh-faced Tim Spencer(18) called upon their many years of experience and kept the ball in play well to secure 5th position with 39 points.

Mike Delooze(10) ‘volunteered’ to play with the hung over Des Kelly(16). Des had an interesting night out in ‘The Warrington Gentleman’s Club’ yesterday and came on the card just twice with vital birdies on the tough 7th and 9th holes. Mike played some solid golf to drag them both into 4th spot.

Nice guys Alan Pengelly(14) and Brian Hopkins(6) were clear favourites to win today after an impressive outward 22 points on the tougher front nine. They capitulated towards the end of their tournament and picked up just six points on the closing four holes ‘It was just like watching Brazil’ chuckled compassionate playing partner Alan Smith.

Deep pocketed Yorkshire men John Snowdon(9) and Alan Robinson(3) from Chesterfield struggled on the front nine and thought that they ‘ad nowt t’ play for’ after failing to score on the 7th hole. However they relaxed and played some great golf on the back nine and were both surprised and delighted to take 2nd place.

Veterans Guy Hall from Sale and Stamford’s Ian Trow also moved through the gears on the back nine. Guy plays poorly most weeks however the greatest moment of his golf career came at Davenport last year when he surprised family and friends with a second place finish. Today the course brought back some great memories and he birdied both the 10th hole and under intense pressure he rolled another in on the 18th hole to snatch the winners spot. Great golf chaps, very well played.

Thank you to all who played today, your support is always appreciated. Yours in Golf, Tim
