2011 World Golf Croquet Championship: Chris Clarke’s Response

Firstly, thanks to Evan for allowing me the opportunity to comment on his article. I accept that there isn’t very much depth or justification in my views posted in my commentaries. This is due to the fact that I was trying to keep up with play in “live” time and didn’t have the chance to expand on my views. I also believe that lively debate is healthy for the sport and part of the fun of playing and spectating.
I’d like deal with a few specific points.

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.
