Maxitours at Classy Caldy
An incredible day was enjoyed by my Maxitours players at Caldy.
Clear blue skies with just the hint of a zephyr from the West meant absolutely perfect golfing weather.
The course was in truly magnificent condition. Excellent Head green keeper Carl Frocher still remained frustrated as he had hoped to hand cut the greens for us this morning but he was unable to due to the heavy overnight frost. They were still magnificent. Thanks for your great work Carl.
The Players event at TPC Sawgrass takes place in just over a month and The Masters starts in eight weeks time. With a few daffodils and crocuses lining the fairways it really feels like we have broken the back of Winter.. Woo-hoo!
Lancastrian entertainer Stuart Roach played today and he turned up in his tour van. He does a ‘trio tribute act’ of David Bowie, Frank Sinatra and Neil Diamond and has his picture plastered on the side of his motor. He impersonated top Golf Professional Tiger Woods on the front nine as his team collected an impressive 42 points however he was more Tim Maxwell on the back nine when the team collected a paltry 28 points.
In todays event only Roy Ainsworths team scored more points on the testing back nine than the easier front nine.
Gary Neiles Sandiway team took third place with 79 points narrowly beating Les Russons Bramall men on the back nine play off.
Withington Solicitor Martin Keates(3) loves it at Caldy as it was the scene of his only ever Maxitours victory last year. They reassembled the winning team of Iain Bartholomew(1) Kev Hawkins(8) and John Owen(9) and nearly pulled it off again! Their 80 points was good enough for second place.
Carden Parks Paul Fell(4) Mike Lowe(10) Nigel Ashton(12) and Colin Bryan(8) could see their Welsh homeland over the Dee Estuary all day and they were inspired by the stunning views. Fell birdied both par 3’s and par 5’s on his front nine and managed to steer his team home safely with a battling back nine.
Well played chaps, great scoring on a golf course that was playing long today.
Thanks to everyone for playing and travelling to posh Merseyside.
I’m getting out of here quickly as I’ve met enough chirpy Liverpool supporters for one day.
Yours in Golf,
