Nottingham Golf Croquet ‘C’ Class (11 July)

Jack entered his 1st ever tournament last Thursday. With 10 players competing there were 2 cross-blocks  and Jack won his first 4 games so guaranteed a place in the semi’s. His only ‘loss’ being a 6-6 draw, when his opponent ran hoop 12, called the score 7-4 and walked off!

In the semi’s, Jack set off to play one of the ‘hot favourites’ – Glynis Davies (6) but was called back when a misreported score was spotted, which turned her group on its head. Once everything was re-calculated Jack, now using clips (the only player to do so all day)  got a comfortable 7-3 win against Simon Draper (7) which saw him into the final.

With the other ‘hot favourite’ David Brame (5) already one of Jack’s victims missing the cut, it was Andy Cruickshank (11) who Jack had also beaten, who took a 4-1 lead.  This clearly did not phase Jack as he rattled off the next 6 hoops, 4 with jump shots to seal his 1st win. His handicap fell to 10!

Well done Jack!
