Maxitours at Hopwood
Maxitours travelled to Manchester Golf Club for the ‘2UNDR’Open. The players all really enjoyed themselves. Thanks to Hopwood and their great staff for some terrific Lancastrian hospitality. Respected Pro Bob Connor and his lovely wife Geraldine and their family run the Club superbly and are a real pleasure to deal with.

Whilst the European Tour’s flagship event ‘The BMW PGA Championship’ is currently taking place at Wentworth which is one of the best courses in the South of the country, the Maxitours ‘2UNDER golf underpants championship’ was taking place on one of the best courses in the cooler North of the country.

The Hopwood golf course is a superb layout and rated by many as the number 1 Manchester course. I have always enjoyed my golf at Hopwood and I first played there in 1991 in the first of my 9 unsuccessful visits to the European Tour qualifying school. A young Lee Westwood and Darren Clarke were also qualifying that year and they both had a few lucky bounces to narrowly pip me by 15 shots.

‘That is my favourite course we play on Maxitours’ said knowledgeable Russell Humphries.

The Hopwood event is just off the M62 and it attracts more Yorkshire players than usual. It is always great listening to them talk. Apparently Dave Crowther can’t play next week because its ‘Alifax Olidays’.

Well spoken wealthy Mere resident Phil Smeathers met up with his old Northern friends from way back who travelled down from Kendal Golf Club to meet up with him. ‘What are we having for breakfast chaps?’ he asked them as he shook their hands in the clubhouse ‘We’ve jus ‘ ad full english’ replied the straight talking hungry Cumbrians ‘see ya on tee’.

In today’s event Gary Conroy was delighted to win a pair of the fantastic golf underpants provided by our sponsors 2UNDR today. ‘They are perfect I’ve not bought a new pair of underpants for ten years, the Mrs will be in for a real treat tonight’.

Ex England international and Sunderland legend Mickey Gray turned up in a great mood this morning after the black cats escaped their battle against the drop with a draw against Arsenal last night. His good spirits soon evaporated with some wild tee shots on the golf course and it was his Driver which was sadly relegated to the corner of his golf bag.

Open champion Stuart Cink once famously said ‘I’m not superstitious because it just brings you bad luck!’ Mike McGoun was unlucky when nearly holing his second shot on the 18th hole- but still won nearest the pin in 2. Greg Adams was also unlucky to see his ball lip out for a hole in one on the short 13th but he also took the nearest the pin prize. Well played.

Northenden’s Carl Kennedy(12), Hopwoods Pete Waterhouse(14) and the Myton Fold duo of Richard Palmer(12) and John Farnworth(23) were thrown together earlier this week to make up a team. There was some great golf played by them all and they were delighted to finish in third with 84 points. ‘It was nice to relax and be confident that your playing partners are going to hit a good shot’ said Richard. ‘With our regular Maxitours partners, Frank and Mick, you never know what the hell will happen next’.

After a week’s practice on the tough Faldo course in Turkey last week the consistent Tytherington team enjoyed the immaculate and generous Hopwood fairways. An incredible nine birdies and an eagle from Gareth Lover(7), Dave Allmond-Smith(3), Martin Firth(4) and Andy Stubbens(5) saw them finish in second place. A handicap review is well under way.

Winning the 2UNDER Championship was the Springfield Park team of Archie Tahir(6), Fizz Ahmed(13), Nad Anwar(6) and Tahir Mahmood(10). They recorded their first victory in over a year with a wonderful 87 points. A solid back nine from the Springfield Park team topped off with a birdie from Fizz on the 18th hole saw them win on a card play-off, very well played chaps!

Thanks to all players for your terrific support today, Tim.
