|Maxitours at lovely Knutsford
My home course of Knutsford proudly hosted todays Maxitours singles event. The weather just about held off and nearly sixty players enjoyed what Ex European tour star Denis Durnian describes in his opinion as the best nine hole course in the world.
The catering has always been superb at Knutsford and new stewards Ceri and Rhiannon are doing an absolutely fantastic job producing great food as well as being lovely people- Thanks for looking after my guys today.
Peter Farmer was proudly telling his four ball that he was heading off to Celtic Manor this weekend. His team mates told him to play the Roman Road course as the Ryder Cup course would be much too long for him. Then they warmed to the subject:
It is always nice listening to conversations in the clubhouse and Ian Handy was telling his team how his life had been transformed recently. I listened in as I thought he may have had some form of interesting operation or perhaps a hair transplant -but he was just talking about the new Bramhall bypass.
I use the event at Knutsford to sell some stock that I have. For some unknown reason I bought a pair of tangerine Galvin Green pants a couple of years ago and I haven’t had a sniff of selling them to my very reserved Knutsford Members. I knew that snazzy dressing Mark Hagarty was playing today and he will buy anything as long as it is visible from over a mile away. The trousers were his size and right up his brightly lit street. He was my final hope.
In todays event Didsburys Simon Wells took 4th place with 35 points.
The rain fell in the afternoon but Lymms battling Marc Morris(18) posted an impressive 39 points to take 2nd place. Late in the day Sandiway’s John Hunt (18) had a steady 17 points on the front nine and then bogeyed the 10th and 11th . Suddenly he then hit what can only be described as the purple patch of his life playing the next five holes in one under par to cruise through the field.
Well played to all competitors. The rain came down later in the afternoon so the Stuburt shootout will be rearranged for a later date.
Thanks to all who played I hope you had a great day despite a damp afternoon, Tim
