Hoad was the most inconsistent of the three. A good example could be that he played very well against Gonzalez in the 1959 world series but lost several matches to Cooper and Anderson while Gonzalez beat them in every match.
Here we disagree. Hoad beat all three opponents on the 1959 American tour, which was not a true round-robin and was regarded as a head to head by Gonzales himself, his only loss in such a tour.
Hoad's record in the Ampol World Championship was 34 to 13, first place.
