We will play Sweden, the #2 seed in the Plate, in a two-day test beginning tomorrow.

WCF Golf Croquet WTC: Day Four

By Eric Sawyer | Yesterday was first round of the Plate.  We played and defeated the #4 seed from the other block, Wales.  We won 4-1.  Sherif won his first singles match.  Our boys showed some real character today.
Tomorrow, we play South Africa, my early favorite.  That team features all-time great Reg Bamford.  I have offered to buy whoever plays and beats him in singles tomorrow whatever six-pack they pick.  We should beat SA, as they have not played well in this event.

WCF GC World Team Championship: Day One

Good news, our lads beat Sweden on Sunday in the opening day of WCF Golf Croquet World Team Championship block play with a 4-2 score. Today we play the Irish, which will be a really big game as explained below.

USA v. Sweden

Our play today was solid, but not spectacular. Ben, Danny and David were solid in winning their singles matches. Our doubles teams split, with Ben/Sherif winning their match but Danny/David losing their match. The highlight in doubles was when Ben made hoop 9 from the boundary line with a two bounce jump shot that took us to 5-4 in game two of the doubles.
