Results from magical Manchester

Room for 1 team at Helsby next week- tee times below

Maxitours from marvellous Manchester !!!
A big thank you again to my PGA friend Matt Turnock for running today’s event, this time he managed to get to the correct venue on time unlike his adventures last week when he drove thirty miles past Lancaster Golf Club and only realised his mistake when he neared Carlisle! He will forever receive some stick.

I had to visit my lad in hospital who is thank fully now home and on the mend after an infected wound on his foot. – thanks for all the good wishes.

As The 150th kicked off at St. Andrews today’s Maxitours players were treated to the excellent Manchester Hopwood course which was in magnificent condition with lots of comments about the quality of greens the overall condition of the course.

The weather was cold and blustery for the early starters but soon improved into a very pleasant afternoon for the later players. Many golfers took advantage of the excellent food offerings prior to tee off with the catering team headed by Steve and his clubhouse staff.
Scoring was very tight at the top but taking 2nd place on a card count back was the team of Nathan Evans, Richard Bamforth, Dave Greenwood and Gary Smith with an excellent 89 points beating Heyrose’s Phil McCurry, Paul Robinson, Neil Pemberton and Phil Harris into 3rd place.

Winning were the Saddleworth four. These lads teed off at 2.59pm which was also Tigers exact tee time at St Andrews. Unlike the talented superstar these four got off to a great start and recorded a first ever win. Tom Williams, Stuart Muller’ John Barnes and Nathan Mills made the most of the glorious afternoon weather and were very popular winners. Brilliant.

NP 13th – Jim Hodges – 1 Doz Srixon AD333
