Maxitours at Fantastic Fixby

Maxitours had its annual visit to what many players consider to be Yorkshires finest venue -Fixby.

The course was a prepared to an exceptionally high level and looked a real picture with the Rhododendrons in full bloom . Many thanks to Alex the highly respected Head Professional and all her Fixby staff for making us feel so welcome. Thanks to the greens staff for all their hard work throughout the day.

John Pratt turned up at Huddersfield looking a little bit apprehensive after his rock bottom finish last week. ‘Wow, This looks really nice- is it a good course?’ I told him it was absolutely superb but warned him that is was really tough test of golf.
‘When are we playing an easy course? he enquired.

Richard Palmer is a relatively successful Maxitours player but most weeks he lets himself down with his golfing attire. Today he looked pleased with himself as he had a new and very expensive Under armour skin to keep warm . Unfortunately he was wearing it not only inside out but also back to front.

With thunder and lightning hitting Manchester and Cheshire all afternoon the weather was relatively kind to us in sunny Yorkshire. There was a 50 minute heavy downpour at two o’clock but the rest of the day was idyllic! The scoring was once gain very close and the season low score of just 42 points was good enough to win.

Graham Pike(12) was in the prizes on Saturday when he finished 4th in the worst dressed golfer of the year at Knutsford Golf Club. He continued his prize winning streak today teaming up with Nigel Davenport(4) to take 7th spot with 39 points. Mancunian nice guys Ray Massey(5) and Steve Tyrell (15) were delighted with 6th place and Richard Brewster (10)and Richard Walmsley(3) marked their Maxitours debuts with 5th place all on 39 points.

Maxitour regulars Brian Hopkins(5) and Mark Taylor(12) both work very hard and they ask for late start times each week. The lovely Shrigley members were rewarded with a rain free afternoon and made the most of the conditions to finish in fourth place with a solid 40 points.
Joe Kirwan(5) and Mike Spencer(12) both had their handicaps reduced after playing well in Bramall’s Captains day this Saturday. Their good form continued as they finished in 3rd place also on 40 points.

Hazel Grove’s Dan Moss(7) and Chris Heyes(5) really enjoyed the course and Chris made a wonderful birdie on the 18th to secure 2nd place with 41 points.

Steve Parle(12) and Gary Parle(15) have played Maxitours for the past five years and were delighted to win a pair of socks in 2012. Everything clicked for the jovial brothers as they recorded the best result of their careers in Yorkshire this afternoon. Gary has spent plenty on lessons with top PGA coach Adrian Fryer and he recorded 5 straight pars from the 2nd to 6th holes. Steve was in a state of shock after his win and was seen wandering around the course for two hours searching for his car keys which were tucked safely in his golf bag. Well played chaps- great performance on a top course!

Thanks for everyone for your support- I am sure you had a fulfilling day rather than watching England struggle against the Welsh!
Yours in golf, Tim
