GC Open Championship, Southwick – 13-16 August
Three of Bowdon’s finest Golf Croquet players competed in the GC Open Championship, from 13th to 16th August.
John-Paul Moberley is playing off of -5 and was one of the favourites to lift the title, Will Mellor is on 1 and playing his first major championship; young Jack Good (2) is also competing.
Matches were played in blocks of 8 on an all-play-all basis. Unfortunately, Will was been drawn in Block A, the same block as J-P; Jack played in Block D. The top 4 of each block qualified for the knockout rounds while the others contested the Plate.
After qualifying for the Championship Knockout by finishing 2nd in his group, John-Paul lost in the first round and then proceeded to win the Bowl competition; Will & Jack played well in their blocks without qualifying but Jack went on to win the Plate Knockout competition.
