Wigan Warriors hold inaugural golf day
Event hailed great success by Kris Radlinski
- Fleetsmart UK win best fourball team award
Wigan Warriors inaugural Golf Day took place at Shaw Hill Golf Resort & Spa Hotel last week.
In a battle between Team Rads and Team Waney, Rugby Director Kris Radlinski took bragging rights with a combined stableford score of 763 compared to 691.
Winning team captain Kris Radlinski said,
“Winning the inaugural Wigan Warriors Golf Day ranks alongside everything I have achieved in my career.
“The trophy will find a nice spot in between the Lance Todd and Harry Sunderland trophies.
“I always thought Waney would be better under pressure but I guess he couldn’t handle it on the day. I am sure he will be back stronger next year”
Wigan Warriors Sales Executive Paul Dawber added,
“The Wigan Warriors Golf Day was a fantastic day for everyone involved, bringing together lots of different people in a fun environment.
“I would like to thank everyone involved who helped to make this event possible including our excellent hosts Shaw Hill, event sponsors Fleetsmart and BCC Cars, and both Rijo 42 and Electrolux for donating prizes.
“We hope that the Golf Day will become an annual occasion and I’m sure that next year’s event will be even better.”
The overall best fourball was main event sponsor Fleetsmart, whilst their team member and former Wigan player Gary Connolly won the longest drive competition.
Tony Waite of SOL PV won the trophy for the best individual golfer with a score of 39 stableford points.
After hitting a hole-in-one on the 12th hole, Keytech Managed Solutions Managing Director Steve Critchley won himself a two-night stay at the Forest of Arden Golf Resort, a prize which had been kindly donated by BCC Cars.
Mark Elstone from Caliper Engineering was victorious in the chipping challenge, taking away a washer and dryer provided by Electrolux Appliances.
Wigan Warriors would like to thank everybody who took part, Shaw Hill for hosting and also Fleetsmart, BCC Cars, Rijo 42, and Electrolux for a memorable day.
