Middlesbrough GC C-Level Series Tournament

[<<] [>>] by Derek Johnson at Middlesbrough [^] -> bottom
15 Jul 2018 (Golf Croquet)

The twelve entrants had been drawn into two American blocks of six with placings in the blocks playing a final play-off against their counterparts from the other block.

Block A finished in a three way tie at the top with John Fitzpatrick (Middlesbrough), Marcia Henderson (Auckland) and Brenda Johnson (Belsay Hall & Tyneside) all finishing with 6 points from their 5 matches with Marcia beating John, John beating Brenda and Brenda beating Marcia. John Fitzpatrick emerged as the winner, Marcia second and Brenda third, not on alphabetical order(!) but on net points.

Block B was a simpler affair, just a two way tie. Sandra Cornes' (Crake Valley) 7-5 win over Dave Okell (Tyneside) in the last round of matches was enough to pull her level with Dave on points and, of course, sent her through on the who-beat-whom first tiebreaker.

The play-offs saw Sandra Cornes take full advantage of her last gasp qualification at the top of Block B by overcoming a 3 point handicap difference in experience to beat John Fitzpatrick into 2nd place 7-5. Third place in the tournament went to Dave Okell, who has only been playing for two months, who beat Marcia Henderson (fourth), and another 3 point handicap difference, 7-2.

Other participants were Sue Caygill (Belsay Hall & Tyneside), Sara MacPherson and Izzy Poyntz (Bishop Monkton), Colin Chun and Jean Thompson (Belsay Hall) and Alison Okell, and May Hall (Tyneside).
