Welsh Classic full results

Maxitours at breathtaking North Wales

What a terrific two days in the sun.
Thanks to everyone who played in the Welsh Classic. Well over 100 golfers spending two days in Wales and not a single issue which is a testament to what a lovely group of golfers I am lucky enough to have on my tour.

There was a slight incident when Colin Upton got hit in the face by a stray golf ball as he played the 3rd hole but he took it on the chin.

North Wales is an incredibly friendly golf club and General Manager Phil Beard is the nicest guy in the golf business. The professional shop and catering is also up there with the best in Wales. All my players love this venue and the course can boast possibly the most enjoyable last four holes in golf- they are all short but cracking fun to play.

Graham Jackson played with his lovely better half Caroline this week. Everyone thinks she is far too nice for him. Unfortunately, since he has been dating the health conscious Heyrose lady member Graham has changed. He went to the bar this morning and asked:
‘Can I have a small breakfast?’
I never thought I would see the day.

It was great to see Roy Ainsworth make the trip to watch his team play. Roy had a wisdom tooth out yesterday so missed his favourite event. The 15th tee is right next to the clubhouse and Roy rushed over urging me to watch his team tee off.
‘Just watch this lot play their shots. It will make you appreciate what I have to put up with each week.’

In todays event the shortened course and fast running fairways meant the big hitters were destroying the par fives. Six birdies from James Cash(1) and a four pointer from his Dad Russell(5) helped Jim Caldwell’s(12) Wilmslow team gather 92 points for the best score of the week. Excellent.
Simon Hemsleys(12) Bramhall team were 23 points better than yesterdays abysmal performance and they finished 2nd with 89 points. Gareth(+2) and Charlie Bradley(1) and Joe Kirwan (8) completed the talented team.

In the overall two day event it was incredibly close with the Jim Caldwell, Paul Fell and Bob Eastwood teams sharing 3rd place on excellent scores of 22 under par.

Gary Owen(9) and Mark Bone(9) were devastated to learn this week that they would not be travelling to the Tokyo Olympics due to Covid and quarantine restrictions. The Sports analysts for the British Olympic Taekwondo team were delighted however to take second place in the Welsh Classic.
‘This beats a gold medal at the Olympics any day.’ Announced delighted Owen.
Alan Gale(21) and Alistair Holloway(14) made up the quartet.

Taking the honours was the Davyhulme Park team who held their nerve despite dropping a shot on the opening hole. I watched John McAtee(7) and Paul Yearsley(13) both impressively birdie the closing hole to seal a narrow win. Kev Hart (11) and Ted Mansfield (17) also played great golf over the two days. Well played chaps.

Thanks to everyone for your support and 100% attendance.
Superb.

Tim.
