McWhirter strikes gold again

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Look Lo­cal -

CHRIS McWhirter has gone back-to-back win­ning the Gold Medal at the 2016 Golf Cro­quet Na­tion­als for the sec­ond con­sec­u­tive year.

The For­rest Park Cro­quet Club mem­ber played off against Vic­to­ria and Queens­land af­ter the three states fin­ished in a three-way tie fol­low­ing the round robin.

It then came down to WA and Vic­to­ria, a re­play of last year’s gold medal fi­nal, with McWhirter win­ning 76 at Cam­bridge Cro­quet Club.

McWhirter has won the gold medal four times since 2012.

Golf cro­quet is a short ver­sion of cro­quet, sim­i­lar to Twenty20 cricket.

“I’ve been play­ing since 2000 when I was in my early 20s,” McWhirter said.

McWhirter is also cap­tain of the WA team that is con­test­ing the State Shield dur­ing the next few days.
