Styal 27th October 2021

Sponsored by Don Milligan Dairies

Haydn is unstoppable!

MANCHESTER Alliance Captain Chris ‘Climatic’ Lee kept up his great track record of dry weather for Alliance competitions to give a full field the chance to enjoy a Two Tee start and a Styal course that was in superb condition along with the usual excellent clubhouse hospitality.
The Styal course is now over 25 years old and grows in maturity and definition every year and it drew unanimous praise for the superb greens.

Team competitions are always popular and played in great spirit and it needed a cpo on 89 points to see the team led by Tom Clancy (Cheadle) featuring Mick Holmes (Cheadle), Alistair Holloway (Denton) and Anthony Kenny (Prestwich) finish ahead of serial winner Haydn McCullen (Ashton-on-Mersey) and his club colleagues Josh Corrigan, Steve Conway and Graham Hegg –possibly missing out his regular partner Mark Gauci cost Haydn the top spot!

Next in on 88 were the Bury fab four of Chris Bibby, John Caveney, Martin Hill and Ian Marsh who won a cpo form Bob Barrow’s Flixton team.

Haydn McCullen kept up his fantastic winning streak finishing top of the individual pro section with 39 ahead of Phil Archer (Poulton Park) 38 and Jamie Howarth (Davenport) and Scott Jackson (Disley), both 37.

The weekly prize for the nearest the pin on the fourth hole , provided each week by the ever generous Paul Crisp, was won by Barry Jackson (Davyhulme Park) and sponsor Don Milligan also sponsored a food hamper for nearest the pin on the 14th which was won by Anton Johnson (Warrington).

Well done to all at Styal and the Alliance organisers for providing another excellent day of golf enjoyed by all.
