Weather play­ing havoc

Macclesfield Express - - SEARCH -

THE Manch­ester Al­liance pro­gramme has been se­verely dis­rupted with an un­prece­dented blank start to the se­cond half of their busy win­ter pro­gramme that has seen the first six sched­uled com­pe­ti­tions hav­ing to be can­celled – the worst in re­cent mem­ory.

The cancellations came at Tyther­ing­ton, Romi­ley, Crewe, Ley­land, Brook­dale and Chor­ley but the scratch knock out did see the first two rounds played thanks to the ini­tia­tive of the com­peti­tors.

The can­cel­la­tion of events has paused the keenly con­tested Or­der of Merit quest for the pro­fes­sion­als and am­a­teurs who play reg­u­larly in the win­ter com­pe­ti­tions and gain points for their plac­ings in the events.

The cur­rent stand­ings are Pro­fes­sional OoM: G Cox (Daven­port) 193, A Hod­kin­son (Chorl­ton) 153, C Cor­ri­gan 149, S Jack­son (Dis­ley) 127, I Ridg­way (Dis­ley) 127, M Smith (Stam­ford) 124, A Palmer (Chor­ley) 120, T Maxwell (Knutsford) 111, S Parry (Hart Com­mon) 107, D Brun­ton (Ring­way) 101.

Am­a­teur OoM: J O’Reilly (Swin­ton Park) 26.5, K Ash­ton (Bolton) 24.5, S Ham­blett (Pike Fold) 21, D Brad­bury (Dis­ley) 19, A Fletcher (Bolton Old Links) 19, J Kil­ner (Ellesmere) 18, A John­son (Mere) 17, N Haslam (Stand) 16.5, J Par­ton (Stand) 16.5

There are plenty of op­por­tu­ni­ties for lo­cal golfers to en­ter at­trac­tive open com­pe­ti­tions.

There is a new and ex­cit­ing open team com­pe­ti­tion at Cromp­ton and Roy­ton Golf Club – The Martin Beaty Clas­sic on Sun­day May 29.

It is be­ing or­gan­ised by the club’s pro­fes­sional Martin Beaty and is an Open Four Per­son Team com­pe­ti­tion and teams can be in any com­bi­na­tion of gents, ladies, mem­bers and vis­i­tors and can also in­clude a PGA pro.
