Gauci on the mark at classy High Legh Park
ON a day where nearby areas experienced tornadoes and thunderstorms High Legh Park, apart from one heavy shower, provided a sunny haven and a fine course for another great day of Manchester Alliance golf.
The course drew constant admiration from the full field and this was reflected in the high scoring.
Ashton-on-Mersey pro am duo Haydn McCullen and Mark Gauci are proving to be unstoppable and they again led the pro am section with 47 points and while Haydn produced a steady score of 38 points, it was Mark (pictured above) who made the difference adding vital points on nine holes.
They were just a point clear of fellow Ashton-on-Mersey pair of Ollie Pantoja and Josh Corrigan who won a cpo from Jamie Howarth and Paul Robinson (Davenport).
Jamie kept his aim to retain the professional Order of Merit title as he led the individual pro scores with 41 points, one more than Alistair Waddell (Chorlton) and Tim Maxwell (Knutsford).
There were new names at the top of the am am section with Flixton’s Bob Barrow and Keith Middleton first past the post with 46 points.
Just a point back were Daniel Ritchie (Pleasington) and Carl Robinson (Wigan) with Phil Cooney (Dean Wood) and Chris Harrison (Leigh) next in with 43.
Ian Ridgway (Disley) won the nearest the pin prize and High Legh Park Captain Joe Lauder, a scratch golfer, was delighted to see his club provide first class service both on and off the course on yet another enjoyable day for Alliance golf.
