There are about 300 recesses on one golf ball, and thanks to them, the ball flies three times farther than a smooth one. ... Balls of the same size...

Bundesliga season 2011/12 started with Hardenberg victory

Bundesliga season 2011/12 started with Hardenberg victory

The Bundesliga season 2011/2012 has just started. The first league match took place on the concrete course in Berlin-Tempelhof, probably the most challenging and difficult one in Germany, on the 18th of September. There are generally no league matches on the home courses of the competing Bundesliga teams, so all matches are hold on neutral courses. Only if a team from the 2nd Bundesliga has promoted to the 1st Bundesliga, which was Tempelhofer MV (TMV) from Berlin this year, the first league match is hold on their home course. Particularly this course provides a good home advantage to the local team. But this should not be overestimated in the 1st Bundesliga.

The weather forecast was awful and proven true later, so there were lots of interruptions due to rain. In the morning it was so dark on parts of the course that the light had to be switched on. The planned number of rounds (4) was cut to 2. It even needed until late afternoon to get them through. To validate a league match it’s necessary to get at least half of the rounds through, and the majority doubted that this would be possible.

The season start of the women’s teams was quite surprising. The two favourite teams Göttingen and last season’s winner Mainz ended up on the 3rd and 4th place. The top team of the day was Olching with Christiane Wamboldt playing first, who gained the best score (58) of all women. Bensheim with the senior’s european team champion Ute Rothermel, gaining the best but one score of 62, came 2nd. Mainz and G÷ttingen didn’t play badly but had a lack of top scores in their teams, and they were only 1 respectively 2 shots behind Bensheim. Cuxhaven had two scores above 40 in the team and so ended up on the last place.

The men’s team competition was less surprising. Last season’s superior winner Hardenberg again dominated the match and won 17 shots ahead of Dormagen-Brechten. The matchplay world champion Walter Erlbruch achieved the best score of the day (55). Hardenberg was the only team with a green average (below 30) as 4 out of 6 total scores in their team were green. Only the matchplay vice world champion Harald Erlbruch suffered from a lack of aces and had 66 at the end, but this was easily compensated by his team mates. So it was a good rehearsal for the European Cup at the beginning of October. Dormagens best player was Stefan Hecken with a score of 58 followed by the seniors european team champion Markus Janssen achieving a 59. Arheilgen and Mainz continued their fight from the end of the last season, but this time for the 3rd place. Arheilgens Achim Braungart-Zink could keep the lead against the vice european champion Marcel Noack in the last round and saved the 3rd place for Arheilgen, 2 shots ahead of Mainz. Arheilgens best player was Oleg Klassen with 58, Mainz’s best player Marcel Noack with 59. Bochum followed another 2 shots behind Mainz on the 5th place. It was a disappointing match for the local team Berlin-Tempelhof. They had too many mistakes in their game and couldn’t utilize their home advantage, so ended up on the last place. Their best player was the substitute player Jörg Hartmann with 59, who came into the team in the 2nd round.
