A Commentary on 2011 Golf Croquet World Championship.

2011 Golf Croquet World Championship at Hurlingham
A Commentary on the Commentaries. By Evan Newell.

Two commentaries are to be found on the Web that do not, in my opinion, provide a balanced view of the Hurlingham World Golf Croquet Championship of July 2011. The two to which I refer are:

Chris Clarke’s “opinion” as recorded on the dedicated Championship web site.
Mohammad Kamal’s “post-mortems” of the Championship to be found at “croquetworld.com”.

Managers report by Brian Fisk.

Mark McInerney Wins World Golf Croquet Championships!

Mark McInerney has become the first non-Egyptian player ever to win the World Golf
Croquet Championships. After qualifying from his block without too much trouble,
Mark made his way through a tough Knockout draw to reach the final, beating reigning
champion Ahmed Nasr and 2006 champion Mohammed Nasr en route. This was a truly
magnificent feat in itself coming from a game down in both matches to win.

Mark is 2011 Golf Croquet World Champion
