Maxitours at lovely Llangollen
Another amazing February day greeted Maxitours players at Llangollen today. The greenkeeper was up at the crack of dawn preparing his smoothly ironed greens and freshly cut fairways – many thanks.
‘Those Greens were fantastic -really, really quick and true.’ Said Colin Roberts
The world’s top golfers work hard on staying positive in everything they do and this tends to transmit itself into great performances on the golf course. A few Maxitours golfers need to take note:
There is a large sign in the entrance to the Clubhouse warning golfers not to enter the fast flowing river Dee under any circumstances. Mike Rowe’s Pro V1s failed to obey and his three new balls entered the river Dee with an expensive splash.
Thomas Cook pilots Mike Ferguson and Dave Keen played together in their first Maxitours event since they both retired earlier this year.
Winning the two day event was the Bramall Park team led by charismatic Steve Merricks(5). Rob Kenyon(13), Les Russon(12) and Simon Burgess(17) listened to Steve’s intelligent advice and were delighted to take first place (168pts). Mick Mahon’s(164) talented team took 2nd and Colin Roberts team(163pts) were 3rd. Congratulations eveybody.
It was nice to see the Evans family (Tony, Audrey and son Paul) enjoying the Welsh sunshine. I upset sixty two year old Tony Evans last year when I called him a seventy year old in my report. He must have had a child bride because Audrey looks great – at least 20 years younger than her husband. She is also the best golfer in the family and her par on the 15th was critical to their success. They were delighted with 4th place.
Lymm’s badly dressed Steve Lambert(3) Steph Hamilton(10) Dougie Main(11) and Russ Jones(7) were 3rd today with 85 points.
Styals Charles Herbert(18) continued his good form alongside Martin Firth(6) and Andy Bethell(12) to earn a 5 shot handicap reduction and taking 1st place was the Wychwood Park team of Tom Butler(9), Eddie Sterling(8), Seam O’Conner(18) and Saj Hashmi(14) . Tom was the main contributor with excellent birdies on the 2nd , 4th and 15th holes. Well played chaps. Great golf.
Thanks to everyone for your terrific support,
Yours in Golf, Tim
