That would be excellent. I've been leveraging the BMGA site for information about individual tournament but would love a season long wrap-up!

Stefan Sudol Snags Close Birthday Invitational


United Kingdom 07 Nov 2016 at 13:35 | Published by: PatPenguin | Views: 1906 | News search

Stefan Sudol Snags Close Birthday Invitational Editor's Note: Not all minigolf tournaments have to be big events and/or sponsored by a federation. We know many people put together their own tournaments to celebrate various events and promote competitive, but fun, putting among friends. It's not big news but we want to showcase these events as we hear about them to continue our goal of showing how much impact miniature golf has on people's everyday lives. If you have an article about a local event please get in touch with us at patsheridan@minigolfnews.com

A birthday minigolf tournament culminated in a tense playoff, but unfortunately there were no happy returns for Henri Myers on his special day. He was beaten in the Henri Myers Birthday Invitational by friend Stefan Sudol following a playoff.

The event took place on Sunday 18th September to mark Henri’s 32nd birthday, when he and seven friends from Leeds traveled up the M62 Motorway to Volcano Falls Adventure Golf at the Xscape Centre in Castleford, Yorkshire.

After the drawing of the groups into 4 pairs, this 36 hole stroke play event got underway on the T-Rex Trail course. With undulations on the green and no shortage of obstacles, concentration was crucial, as the competition was closely fought, with only seven strokes separating the leaders Henri Myers and Johny Goldstone and 8th place after round 1.

The final round was played on the adjoining Volcano Valley course with the groups being determined by reverse leaderboard order with the leaders out last.with the leaders out last. Both Andrew Dalton and Adam Teeman couldn’t lift themselves to climb up from the bottom of the leaderboard, but Goldstone surprisingly fell to sixth after a nightmare back 9. Adam Gould solidly stayed in mid table, and arguably the surprise of the day was chronic bad back sufferer Ben Gershaw, scoring two rounds of 47 to end in the top half. Alex Hyman’s superb final round 44 wasn’t quite enough to win, ending agonizingly one stroke behind the tied leaders.

The sudden-death playoff between Sudol and Myers commenced at the 17th hole on the T-Rex trail course, which ended in a half in twos. The destination of the trophy was decided at the following playoff hole (the 18th), coming down to the final putts, where Myers missed a three-footer leaving Sudol free to comfortably hole out to take the title. All the players thoroughly enjoyed the competition and got together that evening at a local Indian restaurant to share each others' experiences at trying to tackle one of the most challenging adventure golf courses in the North of England.

Final Scores
1 Stefan Sudol 47 43 90*
2 Henri Myers 46 44 90
3 Alex Hyman 47 44 91
4 Ben Gershaw 47 47 94
5 Adam Gould 48 49 97
6 Jonny Goldstone 46 52 98
7 Andrew Dalton 52 47 99
8 Adam Teeman 53 51 104

*Won playoff at second extra hole.

Thank you to Ben Gershaw for writing this article and to Alex Hyman for sending it along.
