2016 US Open: Elimination Blocks (Day 4)

PLAYER JOURNAL BY LEO NIKORA:
For the first time in its 29-year history, the United States Open did not have a single-elimination playoff. Instead, each flight of ten players was reduced to two round-robins of four players each, seeded according to the block results.  The winners will advance to the finals.  There was some trepidation in the players, but I thought it worked well.

Updated on Thursday, January 15, 2015 at 06:47AM by Registered CommenterDylan

With Jeff Soo and Ben Rothman battling to a tie with three US national titles each in 2014, we thought we would start the year off by letting the readers vote in the first annual Croquet Network US Player of the Year Poll to get the people's choice. We're also including any player that gained a USCA national title in 2014 along with some of the top finishers in the 2014 USCA Grand Prix, so you have plenty of options to vote for the best performance:

Morning Coffee: Soo Claims 2014 Grand Prix

TIGHT GP RACE FOR 2014: With 2014 in the books, that brings another USCA Grand Prix to a close. The standings show that Jeff Soo edged out Ben Rothman with 22,225 points to Rothman's 19,515. Based on Rothman's three national titles (USCA Singles, GC Singles and GC Doubles) versus Soo's two titles (AC Singles and USCA Doubles), it could again spell controversy for the USCA which uses the Grand Prix to select the USCA Player of the Year.

USCA GC Nationals: It's Show Time

Today the matches started, bright and early. Thank goodness we were spared the winds that made yesterday so unfestive. The sun actually broke out of the clouds a few times. But as the evening fell, so did the temperatures. By day's end, my hands were so cold I could barely feel my mallet.
