Results from Vale Royal Abbey
You could feel the tension building in anticipation as one of the greatest golfing events of the year was about to kick off – no not the Ryder Cup but the Vale Royal Abbey Am Am.
After mixed weather at the start of play the odd light shower gave way stunning sunshine which cracked the Vale Royal flags. The clubhouse was buzzing with all players trying to catching a glimpse on the TV of the morning Ryder Cup matches teeing off before heading off to do their own golfing battles (some faring better than others).
The occasion obviously inspired a number of players but none more so than 3 handicapper Andy Hall from Cheadle who came in proclaiming “I’ve had a blinder” managing to shoot a personal best score of 68 Gross with no less than 6 birdies, 3 of which were consecutive from the 3rd to the 5th, to assist his team to a 90 point haul.
At the other end of the spectrum poor Anton Ellis’s team got off to a flying stop and could not get out of first gear in a disappointing 49 point tally – this game can be cruel !
Many stayed behind in the bar after play to soak up the atmosphere and it was fantastic to see local Macclesfield Pro Jamie Donaldson score his first Ryder Cup point partnering Lee Westwood – well done on your debut Jamie. The final groups came up the 18th with their torches to end a well supported event.
