White Wins Florida GC Regional

Championship Doubles Finalists: Lawrie Simpson, Cheryl Bromley, Macey White and Bo Prillaman

A RECORD 32 PLAYERS

The National Croquet Center in West Palm Beach, Florida was the site of the 5th Annual USCA Florida Golf Croquet Tournament January 12–14, 2018. A record 32 players took to the lawns for three days of singles and doubles competition with a total of 119 matches played! It was wonderful to see a number of new faces enter the ranks as well as others from across the country and southern hemisphere with Lawrie Simpson of Australia traveling the farthest and logging the most frequent flyer miles!

The top two players in each block then advanced to the Championship Knockout quarterfinals, and the 3rd/4th place finishers moved into the First Flight Knockout quarterfinals. Remaining players had the option to play additional matches in the Plate consolation.

Despite dodging rain showers from time to time and with a few matches running much longer than expected, the second day wrapped up with some places in the semi-finals left to be determined early the next morning.

Sunday’s action featured solid play and beautiful shot-making as the tournament winded down to its conclusion. Individual scores may be found on www.croquetscores.com. Congratulations to our newly crowned Champions for 2018!
