Maxitours at Sun Kissed Stockport
Stockport is right up there with Cheshire’s finest. The terrific weather and stunning layout meant an enjoyable day was had by all. Thanks to everyone at this friendly Club for your hospitality, it was also a nice touch when the President popped in to wish us well. Newly married top pro Gary Norcott and Jayne Scowther are also great to deal with -brilliant.
The country is buzzing after some terrific performances at the Olympics in Rio. Yesterday was perhaps the most successful day in British Olympic history and it was capped off when South African golfer Justin Rose won a terrific gold for Team GB.
It is the turn of the talented Brownlee brothers to set off in their quest for Olympic gold tomorrow in the Triathlon. Let’s all hope and pray that they fair better than the untalented Brownhill brothers (Graham and Malc) from Chorlton cum Hardy Golf Club who could only manage 22nd place with 72 points .
Bernard Hessian’s team also had a bad day, he even tried to throw the scorecard in the bin, but it missed.
Mick Mahon tees off at 10am on the dot with his Lancashire based team each week. After play they always have a quick pint and a long inquest to work out why they played so badly before departing for the North at 2.30pm looking miserable. Today at 3pm I was surprised to see them heading for the Clubhouse door looking happier than usual. I then remembered they had asked for a late start time and were actually heading for the first tee. ‘We are just delaying the inevitable’ said dour team mate Richard Palmer. They actually played well today and lie in 7th place before tomorrow.
There were 4 teams tying for third place on 84 points and all of them scored heavily on the back nine. Dave Bowers team took 3rd spot after collecting 46 points on the closing holes.
Well known Cheltenham winning jump- jockeys Sean Quinlan (24) and Alan O’Keefe (14) joined wealthy horse owner Alan Baxter (7) and Matt Barratt(14)from Mere Golf Club. They all played great to finish in 2nd place with 86 points. I am not a big gambling man but Alan was feeding his lads up with bacon baguette and chips before they went out and they certainly weren’t drinking orange juice in the bar after play. I won’t be backing one of his horses for a couple of weeks.
The Prestbury team of Chris Adams(13), Charlie Cunningham(13), Andy Oakes(7) and Simon Golsby(6) took first place with an impressive 87 points. Ex-Club Captain Charlie was the star man as he picked up seven shots for his team. ‘Are you still also a member at Royal Lytham as well as Prestbury? ‘ I asked him after the round. ‘Yes and I have just joined Royal Dornoch as well!’ Nobody likes a show off Charlie.
Well played chaps great score.
There are prizes for top 3 teams each day and top 3 overall – but teams can only win 1 prize! Full results printed tomorrow!
thanks for your support, Tim
