What a day...another fantastic turnout at a fantastic course.A day full of thrills n spills on a truly sunny,cold and memorable day at WHITEFIELD Golf Club.....
Div1:A well fought out division as ever with an 'old face' returning to the fray in Ross Birch,nice to see the colourful dress sense has not left him...the tough course that Whitefield is, shown its prowess as the 'pro's' of the division laboured with the scoring produced on the day....Mick 'Roydsy' Royds producing a respectable score after a long layoff carrying Dennis 'Maverick' Higgins throughout the winter.Roydsy scoring 26 points was testament to how tough the course was on the day.Our Resident Pro Rob Macauley was next up with 27 points.Paul 'Manilito' Rushby was on par with the returning Ross Birch on 28 points...good scoring again but to no avail...Lee 'Youngfaldo' Burns endeavoured to reach the podium spots but his lack of sharpness around the greens cost him only managing 29 points.Mr steady Carl 'Gleavesy' Gleaves produced a solid round of 30 points but was knocked off top spot by Paul 'Bainesy' Baines,who after only shooting 11 points out produced some magic scoring 19 points on the back nine and claiming top spot.Quality golf from Paul!
Div2:Ex Captain Ian 'Fitzy' Fitzhenry posting a good score for the day with 32 points and got the division well under way....Brilliant scoring from the middle order with club jumper Howard Barker posting a very respectable 36 points with 18 points back and front on his new patch!Jim 'the Caddie' Fallon nudged Howard out on a card playoff also with 36 points..then the real business started as there was a 3 card playoff for the podium spots.Dave 'Beezy' Allen roared into a fast start with 22 points on the front 9 as did Roy 'Woody' Wood with 20 points out....but both were outfoxed by 'The Iceman' Jed Howarth who scored really well in with 20 points and claimed the division scoring a fantastic 37 points...brilliant scoring from these 3 players as was the scoring in the division.Well played Jed!!
Div3: Again very well contested with a whole host of players in the 30's
There was were only THREE 2's on the day as Carl Gleaves shown great putting prowess with 2's on the 5th and 11th.Jon 'The Gaffer' Clark claimed the other '2' draining a 30 footer!!
A huge thanks to Frodsham Golf Club who made us all feel very welcome with fantasic service and Hospitality throughout the day.Another fantastic turnout and a terrific venue which we will be visiting again...
Our next event is at Whitefield Golf Club 19th May 2016
