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...

Eight rounds of Teamplay in future WC and EC


World 09 Feb 2012 at 20:48 | Published by: Hans | Views: 7150 | News search

Eight rounds of Teamplay in future WC and EC When the WMF Technical committee was gathered in Offenbach, Germany on the last weekend of January a lot of topics where discussed as usual.

One of the more debated issues where many of the interviews we made here on Minigolfnews with players after the WC in Stockholm was the shortening of rounds in the Team play at International events from 8 to 6 rounds played over two days instead of 3 as before.

The change was made to make Friday the day of the stroke play finals. The change to have stroke play finals itself was mostly positively comments about but it was a pity that this change was done causing fewer rounds in the team play.

Therefore the TC has decided that “The team competitions of World and European Championships of all categories are extended to be played over eight rounds in two days instead of current six rounds whenever the number of participants, system(s) to be played and time schedule during the tournament allow it.” All details about this will be published in the minutes from the meeting once they are published.

Further topics highlighted in the WMF news bulletin are:

• TC had received applications for future championships in years 2013-2015 and some more are announced to come in soon.

• A workshop for creating standards for becoming and being a WMF international referee will take place during YWC 2012 week in Bad Münder, based on the motion of the Youth Committee.

• TC discussed a hot topic regarding ball approval and decided to create a list of currently available balls which don’t have to be approved and for which no approval fee has to be paid. “Klickers” and glass ball are examples of such balls.

• After having revised the felt rules in 2011, TC will now start a revision process of the system-specific rules of miniaturegolf with the goal to bring the motion to the DC 2013.

Golf balls will be at least part of this discussion. This said without any prediction of the outcome.

An interesting detail: old minigolf balls are allowed, even though no license was paid for them. But old golf balls have not been allowed with this same logic, I think.
