Haydn bites his way to a fine double
THERE was a full field for the second Manchester Alliance Winter competition which again enjoyed great weather, a superbly presented course and the magnificent hospitality at Bramhall’s beautiful clubhouse and friendly staff.
Last week Ashton-on-Mersey GC’s Haydn McCullen enjoyed his Alliance debut by winning the pro am section at Crompton and Royton GC.
This week he suffered a nasty dog bite to his leg prior to the competition but it did not deter him from playing again with his excellent partner Mark Gauchi.
The dynamic duo (pictured) racked up 46 points to go three clear of Chris Bibby and Steve Cooney (Bury) and Phil Archer (Poulton Park) and Carl Irwin (Warrington) in the Pro Am section.
Haydn also posted 41 points to win the individual pro prize from Phil Archer 39, Ian Ridgway and Scott Jackson, both Disley, and Andrew Baguley (Westhoughton), all 37.
There was also good scoring in the Am Am section led by Ian Fearns and Phil Ramsden (Stamford), 45, Mark Richardson and Bob Kwan (Mottram Hall) 44 and Jordan Howard (Styal) and Will Atherton (Prestbury) who took 3rd spot via a card play off with 41.
The nearest the pin prize was taken by Dave Stephenson (Disley) to conclude another great day of Alliance golf and friendship.
