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...

The Youth German Championship took place on the concrete and eternit courses in Darmstadt-Arheilgen from the 11th to 13st of July. The courses are well known and popular in Germany as they allow excellent scores and they are the home courses of a big club with teams in the Bundesliga. The weather conditions were quite good all days, so the tournament could run smoothly - except a very strange interruption on the concrete course on the 1st day: There was a damage on the surface of lane 5, just on the line for the rebound, which had to be fixed.

There were 4 combination rounds to play on the first two days to decide the team competition. Another 2 combination rounds decided the winners of the individual ranking on the final day. The individual ranking at Youth Championships in Germany is generally split into four categories - by age and by sex. The younger kids (called Schüler in German) are aged up to 14 and the juniors are aged from 15 to 19 (called Jugend in German).

The female kids category saw a fight between Patricia Fischbeck from Göttingen and Rebecca Hoch from Dormagen-Brechten. In the first 5 rounds the lead changed from round to round, but then Rebecca gained a comfortable lead with an incredible round of 23 on concrete. In the 2nd half of the tournament Patricia caught up again shot by shot and won at the end with 313 (average concrete 29.8, eternit 22.3), only 3 shots ahead of Rebecca with 316 (average concrete 28.5, eternit 24.2). Sarah Schumacher from Inzlingen came 3rd with 331 (average concrete 30.2, eternit 25.0). Last year's winner Michaela Zwirlein from Murnau reached the 5th place.

The male kids category saw an exciting fight between Kilian Horn from Hachenburg and Max Rosendahl from Neheim-Hüsten. For a long time Max was in lead. In the 8th round Kilian gained a comfortable lead and kept it. So Kilian Horn won with 315 (average concrete 29.2, eternit 23.3), only 3 shots ahead of Max Rosendahl with 318 (average concrete 30.5, eternit 22.5). Benedikt Schwickert from Inzlingen came 3rd (as last year) with 326 (average concrete 32.2, eternit 22.2).

The junior women even provided a hard fight for the victory between three girls. With an incredible 24 on concrete in the 4th round Anna Rümmelin from Inzlingen took the lead in front of Annika Dellmann from Neheim-Hüsten but lost it in the 6th round. She could overtake Annika again in the 11th round, but at the end Annika Dellmann won with 311 (average concrete 28.8, eternit 23.0). The Youth World Champion Katharina Benn from Murnau didn't start so well but had a great final day and overtook Anna Rümmelin. Katharina came 2nd with 314 (average concrete 29.0, eternit 23.3) followed only one shot behind by Anna Rümmelin with 315 (average concrete 28.8, eternit 23.7). Last years winner Vanessa Peucker from Dormagen-Brechten reached the 4rd place.

Philip Lau from Singen, the World team champion, had a storming victory. He started with 91 on the 1st day, with two incredible rounds of 22 and 24 on concrete. On the 2nd day he played another incredible 23 on concrete, and another 24 on the final day. With 278 (average concrete 24.2, eternit 22.2) he won in an absolutely convincing manner, 11 shots ahead of Maximilian Frech from Inzlingen with 289 (average concrete 26.7, eternit 21.5). Only one shot behind Fabio Brück from Homburg (Saar) came 3rd with 292 (average concrete 27.2, eternit 21.5).

The team competition was also split in two categories: kids and juniors. The kids team from Attendorn was in lead one shot ahead of Neheim-Hüsten after the 1st day. Both teams were close together on the 2nd day, but at the end Neheim-Hüsten won with 693 (average 28.9), only 2 shots ahead of Attendorn with 695 (average 29.0). Mainz came 3rd with 719 (average 30.0).

The junior teams competition saw a fight between Göttingen I and Homburg (Saar) with changing leads. Göttingen I won with 607 (average 25.3), only 4 shots ahead of Homburg (Saar) with 611 (average 25.5). The team from Mainz came 3rd with 623 (average 26.0), after a team play-off against Inzlingen.
