Maxitours Algarvian Classic

Maxitours Day 1 in the Sunny Algarve.

The sun shone down on the sixty Maxitours players at Laranjal golf course today. GLORIOUS!
A gentle sea breeze meant the course was playing tougher than usual and this was reflected in today’s scoring.

Leading the way was the Lymm team of Roger Percival, Martin France, Andy Wright and Pete Atherton. It is the 5th time these guys have played in this event and each year they have had a terrible first day. Today was different as they holed several long putts to lead by 6 shots. Pete Atherton is known as Heavy Ballesteros to his close friends as he enjoys his food and has a great short game. He holed a classy sand shot when the rest of his team were crumbling late in the round.

Knutsford’s Chris and Jim Clarke, Graham Jackson and Pete Ledger are looking dangerous in 2nd place after recording 79 -this despite dropping a shot on the birdie-able 18th hole.

The well spoken Stockport Golf Club team of Peter McCulloch, Peter Roche, Chris Hammond and Moby Rawthore are in 3rd place after a hard fought 78 – Rawthore had three 2’s on the tough par three holes.

Can the Percival team hang on to their lead???

Get to bed early guys. Moving day tomorrow.
