David Barratt won 5th Lancashire Open Golf Tournament

[<<] [>>] by Geoff Young at Heaton Park
9th May 2004 (GC - Championships)

The 5th Lancashire International Open Golf Croquet Tournament, played at Heaton Park on May 8-9, resulted in victory for home player David Barrett. In somewhat indifferent weather, the eight contestants battled through a round-robin on the Saturday, Chris Sheen leading with six wins to Roy Ware's five, David Barrett on four, and Don Beck leading the tiebreak in the 3-win group.

The Sunday began with the consolation event of randomly paired doubles, the winners of all three games in the round-robin being John Moore and Roy Ware with Tom Weston and Chris Sheen second. The knockout 19-point semi-finals resulted in Chris beating Don 10-5 and David, who had been modestly surprised to reach this stage, beating Roy 8-6 on time. In the best-of-three final David began well and scored the winning point with an amazing hoop 12 run from corner two. He kept his cool in the second game and won it 7-4 to secure the championship trophy.
