“FIT FELLA WINS THE 1909 BALFOUR CUP”

 CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE NEW B&H ON-LINE UP SIGN-UP PAGE

On June 24th 1909 the Manchester Evening News ran the following article relating to the Balfour Cup which had been played at Timperley Golf Club that year:

Mr. Frank Whitworth, Hon Secretary of the Competitions Committee for the Balfour and Houldsworth Cup, has received the following letter from Sir W. H. Houldsworth:

" Let me congratulate you upon the great success of the Balfour Cup tournament this year. It seems to have been a most interesting contest, and the winner to win under the special circumstances in which he was placed deserves great praise.

I should imagine that it is a new and unique instance in the history of golf for a man to play a good round in the forenoon (top score), then go off and bowl for some hours in a cricket match, and then return to play a second round at golf, and beat his man on the post. If I knew his address, I would write to congratulate him. The second man must have been a good one too."

The winner after the 18-hole play-off was V Hope of Macclesfield Golf Club.

Must have been a fit fella!
