Manchester Alliance Team of Four at Bolton Old Links

Local Knowledge To The Fore

A FULL field of 120 players enjoyed a course in terrific condition at the fine venue of Bolton Old Links for the Manchester Alliance Four Man team event.

Local knowledge played a big part as the top teams were from the host club.

It needed a cpo on 85 points to give top spot to Dave Ashton, Paul Gaskell, Mike Burke and Steve Bolton from Old Links colleagues Eddie Jordan, Ian Fish, Dean Hibbert and Steve Williams.

Next in 84 points were the first pro am team from Hazel Grove comprising assistant pro Ben Thompson, Ian Walters, Ken Russell and Ray Stringer.

The top individual pro was Steve Parry (Hart Common) who has a long experience of playing the course although he did say that this was the first time that he had ever played it well posting a 69 for 39 points.

It left him one clear of Kris Andrews (Ashton-on-Mersey), Scott Jackson (Disley) and Anthony Millar (Ellesmere) with Alliance legend and life member Denis Durnian making a welcome return to action with a very useful 37 points.
