World Crazy Golf Championships

  • Intro:

    Michael Smith from Oxford retained the title of World Crazy Golf champion on Saturday at Hastings, on England's south coast.

    The 27-year-old closed with a final-round 35, one-under par for the day, to beat the rest of the 53-man field by six strokes.


    Forget the Ryder Cup, it's all about a new golfing event and this one even has its own windmill.

    Hastings hosted the World Crazy Golf Championships on Saturday and, oh my word, was it crazy.

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Richard Gottfried - Event Organiser:
    "Every year invitations are sent out to players a cross the world and in the UK who congregate here in the last weekend of October, hit the course for some practice during the week and then two days of intense competition."

    Right, he didn't make it sound all that great, but how about this:

    A challenging seafront adventure course, with the swirling winds of the British Channel and a total of 54 'crazy' golfers.

    And if you're thinking yeah, whatever, well actually:

    SOUNDBITE: (English) Jon Drexler, USA:
    "There is a kind of skill. I compare it very favourably to archery - in which I competed in for a brief amount of time, or riflery or pistol shooting. It takes a great deal of skill and coordination - as well as mental strength to be able to compete at the very high level."

    And Michael Smith took home the trophy for the second time.

    That makes him one crazy crazy golfer.
