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...

Rahmlow takes a historical triple and Brandstätter denied Viberg one

Rahmlow takes a historical triple and Brandstätter denied Viberg one

Gaby Rahmlow of Germany today became historic since she was the first player ever to win all 3 possible gold medals (team, stroke play and match play) in the same championships since the Three categories was introduced in 2011. In 2011 Bianca Zodrow was close with (Gold-Silver-Gold) and last year Martin Lundell was equally close (Gold-Gold-Silver) and Achim Braungart-Zink (Gold-Gold-Bronze) and Anne Bollrich (Gold-Bronze-Gold) was also quite close. But Gaby Rahmlow was the first to achieve this.

And it was not much there to stop her. She won her matches with 6-0, 4-0, 5-0 and finally in the final against team-mate Andrea Reinicke with 4-1. She only lost one lane in four matches and had the brilliant quota of 19-1 in four matches. Gold again for Gaby Rahmlow and silver for Andrea Reinicke. Gaby is the most successful match play player since the introduction in 2007 with two gold’s and two silvers.

In the bronze match Bernice Thors won against her team-mate Linda Lundberg. Bernice is actually the second most successful match play player in history with two bronze, one silver and one gold.

In the men’s finals yesterday dominant Stefan Viberg of Sweden continued his winning game and advanced all the way to the final. In the final he met Austrian Horst Brandstätter, who only was number 26 in the qualifications. Stefan had a match quota of 22-8 on his way to the final and Horst had even more impressive 25-7, so it was expected to be a giant battle between these two.

And as predicted the final became a tight story going all the way to sudden death. There Horst could secure the gold by an ace on the first lane and denying Stefan Viberg to become equally historical as Gaby. But Horst couldn’t deny Stefan from the title as the king of the Championships.

In the bronze match Swedens Mikael Karlsson won against Germanys Markus Janßen.

I have been in Appelscha for both Thursday and Friday and I saw many great performances, especially by Gaby Rahmlow and Stefan Viberg. What a results! Results who make the sport worth what it's worth. Absolutely unbelievable sometimes!!

I would also like to give my compliments to the Organizing Committee of MGC Appelscha, they did a hell of a job and everything was running smoothly. Great advertisement for the sport in the Netherlands and throughout Europe!! I wish them all the luck with the preparations for the European Cup in 2015 and I am sure that also in 2015 the organisation will be in the best hands again.

In both the ladies and gentlemen class it was a one-man (woman) show from start to ending. In the ladies class Gaby Rahmlow won by 10 strokes, just as she did last year in Rozemaii. She could probably have won even more but it’s seemed that she had a hard time ...

It was the German ladies lead by their grand old lady Gaby Rahmlow that took the gold in the ladies class in Appelscha. But for quite long it was looking like the Swedish ladies should defend their title from last year. After 3 of six laps the Swedish ladies ...
