Emily said: “This weekend has been a real mixed bag. I’m unbelievably pleased to finish in 26th place which is the best I’ve ever done at the World Crazies by a huge margin as my previous highest finish was 43rd in 2008!
“I’m also thrilled to pick up The Gommery for most competition Aces.
“However I had hoped to be the top placed female competitor at this tournament for the first time, but unfortunately I missed that target by two shots.”
Richard said: “I didn’t score enough aces and shot too many threes to be in with a shout at the title this year. Great play by Emily though as she scored a lot of holes-in-one over the two-days.”
Chris Harding won the 2014 World Crazy Golf Championships to become a three-time champion.
