Sunny Old Links sets up some hot scoring
AFTER two days of pretty awful wet and windy weather the big field for the Manchester Alliance’s competition at Bolton Old Links were delighted to be faced with a day of sunshine, great views and a terrific course receiving plenty of compliments from the players.
They put on a superb competition with some top scores and close finishes to make this another excellent day for the Alliance.
The Pro Am competition reflected this as there was a four-way tie on 45 points and sharing the spoils were home pro Sean Owen and Paul Greenhalgh (Turton), Craig Corrigan and Mark Riley (Leigh), Andy Baguley (Westhoughton) and Phil Cooney (Dean Wood) and Leigh duo Sean Blinkhorn and Dan Crook.
The top individual pro was Scott Howarth (Davenport) with 42 points taking him comfortably clear of Chris Bibby (Bury) 39 and Andy Baguley and Ben Crompton (Crompton and Royton) both with 38.
It was close in the Am Am competition with Ellesmere’s dynamic duo of Phil Reeve and Josh Lanscomb top of the shop with 45 points from Paul Robinson (pictured right being congratulated by playing partner Mike Fenton) and Mike Jones (Davenport) 44 and Anthony Kenny (Prestwich) and Alistair Holloway (Denton) 43.
The nearest the pin prize was won by Saddleworth’s ever cheerful professional Andrew Earlam to conclude another great day for the MDGA.
