Rutger Beijderwellen won the Sidmouth Golf Croquet Open Tournament

[<<] [>>] by Nigel Graves
1st May 2007 (GC)

Fresh from his triumph at the Winchester One-Ball last weekend, Rutger Beijderwellen swept to victory in the first Sidmouth Golf Croquet Open, losing only one of the sixteen games he played. Despite his relative inexperience of the game, he was able to use the strength and accuracy of his shooting to overcome those with a better understanding of the tactical nuances of golf croquet.
