Ricard Lockner of Sweden became the third non-American winner of all time at USPMGA US Masters 2010, as he played 12 rounds with total average 30,42 at the Hawaiian Rumble and Pineapple Beach adventure golf courses in North Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, USA. Two other non-Americans have won the competition before, both of them from Sweden: Anders Olsson (2004) and Hans Olofsson (2005 & 2006).
Olivia Prokopová of Czech Republic took a rare second place for a female player in the tournament, 9 points behind Lockner. Defending US Masters champion 2009 Greg Newport was third, 2 points behind Prokopová.
Minigolf US Masters is played with a golf ball only, at two adventure golf courses in North Myrtle Beach, a small holiday resort town in South Carolina (USA). Myrtle Beach is the mecca of American golf tourism, with some 100 golf courses and 50 minigolf courses along the 20 km coastline.» results
