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 2013 season ending ranking list from WMF has been published by WMF. This is the ninth time WMF has published this rankings since the start in November 2009.

On the ladies side Anne Bollrich, Germany, climbed from last year’s silver position to the top. Even though Bianca Zodrow won the World Championships on home ground this summer she has to step back to silver position in the rankings due to that Anne had a better 2012 and played more other ranking tournaments in 2013 than Bianca. The 2011 top ranked Karin Heschl of Austria takes one step up from fourth to third place.

In general this ladies list has well established names in the top but there are two new names appearing in top five this year. In fourth position we find Czech Jana Nakladalova which had a great 2013 season and on fifth we find Sandra Bengtson of Sweden, silver medalist in Bad Münder.

The rocket on the list is Evelyn Haberl from Austria that due to her WC Gold medal in Bad Münder climbed from 2012 position 71 to current 2013 position 19.

The five best ladies of the November 2013 WMF rankings are (last year’s position in brackets):

1. Anne Bollrich, Germany 5572 points (2)
2. Bianca Zodrow, Germany 4661 points (1)
3. Karin Heschl, Austria 4396 points (4)
4. Jana Nakladalova, Czech Republic 3942 points (8)
5. Sandra Bengtson, Sweden 3725 points (9)

If you only count the points from 2013 we find a slightly different list. On this list it shows quite clear that the best lady of 2013 where actually Jasmin Ehm of Germany. With a great season all through she clearly outranks all her colleagues during 2013.

The five best ladies of 2013 according to WMF are:

1. Jasmine Ehm, Germany 2258 points
2. Anne Bollrich, Germany 1898 points
3. Evelyn Haberl, Austria 1848 points
4. Karin Heschl, Austria 1741 points
5. Sandra Bengtson, Sweden 1725 points

At the men’s side last year’s winner Günter Inmann of Austria can now be found outside the medal podium. New on the top position is the double silver medalist from Bad Münder, Filiph Svensson from Sweden. Just behind him are the two Erlbruch brothers from Germany with Walter in silver position and Harald in bronze position. Filiph takes over the top with a narrow margin of 28 points ahead of Walter Erlbruch and also Harald is close behind another 248 points behind. Noteworthy is also that the German top club Hardenberg has 3 players in the top five with Alexander Geist climbing from last year’s ninth position.

The rocket climbers of the list this year is Sweden’s Lars Brown (from 22 to 7), Finland’s Oskari Vihervaara (from 25 to 12), Czech Karel Molnar (from 36 to 15), Czech Zdenek Majkus (127 to 31) and last year’s junior Daniel Moser of Switzerland (new on 21st place).

The five best men of the November 2013 WMF rankings are (last year’s position in brackets):

1. Filiph Svensson, Sweden 6492 points (3)
2. Walter Erlbruch, Germany 6464 points (2)
3. Harald Erlbruch, Germany 6216 points (4)
4. Günter Inmann, Austria 6174 points (1)
5. Alexander Geist, Germany 5654 points (9)

On the men’s side it’s interesting to notice that of the top 5 above all of them also qualifies into the top five if you only count 2013. On this list we find Harald Erlbruch in top. Harald had a great season in 2013 with many competitions with top results, however he didn’t really get the final individual peak in Bad Münder he might have hoped for.

Also noteworthy is that the two German individual gold medalists of Bad Munder, Achim Braungart-Zink and Dennis Kapke is not in top five in neither list. Achim is 11th in the rankings and only on place 16 only counting 2013. Dennis is 13th in the rankings and on place 9th place only counting 2013. The explanation for them both is that they didn’t play that many other ranking competitions apart from the World Championships.

The five best men of 2013 according to WMF are:

1. Harald Erlbruch, Germany 3050 points
2. Filiph Svensson, Sweden 2976 points
3. Walter Erlbruch, Germany 2958 points
4. Alexander Geist, Germany 2786 points
5. Günter Inmann, Austria 2654 points

On the juniors girls list the by far winner is not surprisingly Annika Dellmann of Germany. A bit behind still on second place is her junior team mate Katarina Benn and third is Vanessa Peuker.

Best junior girl player only counting 2013 is maybe not surprisingly again Annika Dellmann, with another 2013 breakthrough girl, as equally clear second position, Karolina Jandova of Czech Republic.

In the boy’s category Philipp Lau, Germany is holding on to his top rankings. On second position his team mate Marcel Waleska is rising from fifth position and third is still Sweden’s Derice Shumilov Susoho.

Best junior boy player only counting 2013 is maybe a bit more surprisingly Germanys Maximilian Freich, followed by Finland’s Juuso Tasku and Sweden’s Sebastian Ekängen. One might argue that the odds for these three on the top three positions for 2013 before the season have made any betting player quite rich by now.

At the moment the seniors list are still not ready.

Best nation in all categories are still Germany.
