Montevideo Cup

[<<] [>>] by Jon Diamond at Tunbridge Wells
10th June 2017 (GC)

Liz Farrow from Sussex County won the annual Tunbridge Wells Open Golf Croquet level play tournament (Montevideo Cup) on Saturday 10th June, beating the local hero John Greenwood in the 19 point final by the closest of margins. Some instruction was necessary about the order of hoops 13-19, so no mistakes were made, but the golden hoop was the decider with John having chances to run the hoop, but Liz ultimately winning

Notable was that none of the -1 handicap players made the final, despite the lawns being in perfect condition as was the weather.

Also notable was the play of Tunbridge Wells's Lister Fielding, which resulted in the reduction of his handicap from 9 to 6. Andrew Stewart from West Worthing also merited a handicap reduction to 5, although this was purely on results on his handicap system card.
