Jackson Wins USCA First Flight Doubles Title

RANCHO MIRAGE, CA -- MCA members Matt Griffith and Steve Jackson travelled west this week for the 2014 USCA Golf Croquet Nationals in Rancho Mirage, California. Jackson partnered with California local Pat Dugan and they scored national title in first flight doubles with a 7-5, 7-4 win over Gary Neal and Richard Kennedy in the final (playoff bracket).

Jackson also made some noise in the first flight singles bracket as he gave favorite Michael Rumbin a real fight in a match that went three games but ultimately fell 5-7, 7-5, 6-7.

Griffith played at the champioship level in preparation for the upcoming WCF GC World Championships to be held in February in New Zealand. The event featured the toughest GC field it has seen in many years and had 36 total entrants. He was 3-6 in block play with notable wins over Leo McBride and Stephen Morgan. He was 1-2 in the plate event.
