Maxitours Shotsaver singles at Knutsford Golf Club

The best greens of the year so far were in play at my home course, Knutsford Golf Club today. Many thanks to Head Green keeper Mark Dingle and his assistant Greg for all their hard work. Thanks also to Anne and Ian for looking after us all so well.

A late finish due to the shootout means a shorter than usual report tonight.

It is always fascinating listening to the conversations in the Clubhouse prior to play. Alan Clough was confusing his team when he was telling them how he had just dropped his grandkids of in the ‘Quiche.’ After a long pause his partner said ‘do you mean Crèche?’.

In today’s event the scoring was incredibly close. With such a well prepared course a score in the forties was expected but three players tied on 39 points. In third place was Dave Buckley with his best finish of the season. Pete Short is known as ‘Kate Middleton’ because a good performance from the likeable Airport Security man was so overdue. Today he produced a great performance to take his best ever position on the podium. Paul Dalby took top spot after he incredibly birdied every par 3 to shoot -2 and collect 39 points. Well played chaps!
