Junior star sets new record at Sale Golf Club

SALE and Cheshire Golf’s junior star Adam Carr has set a new record at his home club.

Adam, 15 years, who plays off four handicap, won the Sale Men’s Scratch Knock Out title, the youngest player in the long history of the club to achieve this.

Adam beat Sarabjit ‘Seve’ Ranshi, who also plays off four handicap, in the final and he was delighted to be presented with the trophy at the Sale Men’s Presentation Dinner by Club Captain Terry Crewe.

Dinner organiser Peter Bradford said: “There were many excellent speeches made on the night by the trophy winners and Adam was up amongst them as he showed no nerves by saying how proud he was to have won this particular prize as ‘he knew his dad Steve would never achieve it’ but his Dad, who plays off seven handicap, still loudly applauded his comments.

Tribute was also made to Sale President Peter Broadbent who sadly died just two days before the dinner and his President’s Prize was won by Mike Keane-Williams.

Other special awards were given to Kevin Moore as ‘Team Player’ and Liam Moore as ‘The Most Improved Player’.

Great entertainment was provided by Neil Griffiths with two great speeches- the second of which was accompanied by a light guitar solo of Rendition by George Michael..
