The Spring season of the Bundesliga has started with the 3rd match, held on the felt course in the North German town Bramsche near Osnabrück on the 13th of April. It's said that it's a challenging course, but there were lots of blue rounds and even totals. So apparently the Bundesliga got on very well with the course. The weather conditions were mixed - dry but relatively cold, and quite windy. The wind was disturbing for the players and often delayed the game. So the competition was cut down to 3 rounds for the men's teams. The women's teams started first and got 4 rounds through.
Again the outcome was a bit surprising. No dominating Hardenberg team again. Mainz took the lead after the 1st round, followed by Hardenberg and Arheilgen very close together. Mainz fell behind in the 2nd round, but Hardenberg and Arheilgen were still very close together, with Arheilgen leading by just one shot. Arheilgen could defend the lead in the last round, so won the match 4 shots ahead of Hardenberg - the 2nd victory in a row. In the league table Arheilgen is now 3 points ahead of Hardenberg.
Mainz reached the 3rd place with an excellent 3rd round, followed by Dormagen-Brechten. Niendorf couldn't show such a good performance as in the first two matches and ended up on the 5th place. But they are still on the 3rd place in the table. There were no points left for Künzell after a poor 1st round which put them so far behind the others that they couldn't catch up.
The best player of the day was Dormagen-Brechtens Alexander Junkermann with 82 (ø 27.3).
The current league table of the men's teams:
|5.||1. MGC Mainz||10|
|6.||MGC putter Künzell||0|
The women's teams saw a revival of Göttingen. They took the lead with a good 1st round and increased the distance to the other teams every round, so won in a convincing manner. Bensheim-Auerbach reached the 2nd place ahead of Mainz. Far behind the leading trio Olching ended up on the 4th place, followed by Schwaikheim / Ludwigshafen and Cuxhaven. In the league table Mainz is still leading, but Göttingen caught up. Bensheim-Auerbach, Olching and Schwaikheim / Ludwigshafen are equal now.
The best female player of the day was Bianca Zodrow from Göttingen with 110 (ø 27.5), with a 23 in the 2nd round, the best score of the day.
The current league table of the women's teams:
|1.||1. MGC Mainz||26|
|2.||1. MGC 1970 Göttingen||24|
|5.||SpG Schwaikheim / Ludwigshafen||12|
|6.||MC "Möve" Cuxhaven-Sahlenburg||4|
