On Tuesday 25th July, the Tube and Bracket company entered four teams in the annual Tom Marsh memorial Golf Day at Batchworth Park.
At 8:30am, team members; Nick Tyler, Andy Coles, Tim Massey, Craig Smith, Lee Phillips, Mick Phillips, Paul Hornby, Paul Warrington, Chris Tuzzio, Steve Sadler and Graham Collett met at the factory carpark in Middleton Cheney, before venturing on their drive to the Golf course in Rickmansworth Hertfordshire.
A quick stop on route at Bicester to collect Alan Mellor, Ade Bird and Mike Faulkner, then the team was completed by Mike Bayliss, who joined them on arrival. Much appreciated bacon sandwiches were enjoyed by the guys before tee off. A sticky start to the game, giving everyone a good laugh; Andy Coles of Tube and Bracket took his first shot, which ended up on the ladies tee off point and not in the direction that Andy intended at all.

The winning team were Alan Mellor, Ade Bird and Mike Faulkner. Alan Mellor won the highest score of the day.
