Maxitours at Curtis Cup venue Conwy
Thanks to all my players who travelled to Wales- despite a less than attractive forecast I only had 2 teams cancel for medical reasons which is a credit to everyone.
A great day was had by all.
The Conwy Golf Club is looking forward to hosting the Curtis Cup in June and the course should be in tremendous condition for this international showcase event. I am sure the 15.000 spectators they are expecting each day will enjoy the same warm Welsh hospitality extended to our players. Perhaps some of them will find Ken Clarkes golf balls because he lost a few today.
The greens were rolling very nicely and the fairways were excellent considering the recent rainfall.
The rain held off with just a light refreshing drizzle for the last few groups to enjoy on their back nine. The wind also dropped a little in the afternoon and the scores improved later in the day
Mike Kirchin is a great bloke and he was delighted with his team’s 72 point score which is a lot better than his usual rubbish. ‘We enjoyed that. I actually played well and I think there will be a few teams with a worse score than us this week!’
No there won’t Mike.
Scoring was incredibly close with three teams in the lead for most of the day with 86 points. World Class Premiership referee Mike Dean(5) had a VAR moment when his teams’ 3rd place celebrations were cut short after they missed out due to a card play off. His Aldersley team had to settle for 5th place with 86 points.
Richard Blackwell’s team were 4th and Lewis Marland’s team was 3rd after both had excellent finishes.
Second place went to the Heyrose team of Ian Hellens(11), Steve Blakeway(2) Josh Street(scr) and Tom Beevers(16). Josh had two birdies and an eagle on his closing holes. Cheshire senior Steve Blakeway showed his class with a birdie on the famous 17th hole.
Taking the honours were Lancasters Peter Griggs(13), Phil Robinson(10), Dave Goodwin(10) and Andy Buckley(9). They had a solid round but then Goodwin caught fire on the last few holes as the team went into overdrive. He made a birdie on the 16th and then in his own words ‘I hit a monster down the 17th ‘ An impressive Phil Robinson birdie on the last sealed the victory.
Well played chaps.
Thanks to everyone for your support, Yours in Golf, Tim.
