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...

Portuguese teams national championship - An epic battle


Portugal 11 May 2014 at 19:49 | Published by: agcampos | Views: 6142 | News search

Portuguese teams national championship - An epic battle Lisbon was the stage of the Portuguese teams’ national championship in the weekend of 26-27 April. This competition took place during one weekend where seven 7 rounds were played, men and women in eternity, and juniors, seniors and oldtimers in concrete (the same one where Anders Olsson scored 20 in 2006, but where nowadays a red average is considered a very good result… due to the decay the lanes have suffered.

If in last year’s competition Clube de Minigolfe do Porto took all of the six titles home with a new record of gold medals in the Portuguese minigolf history, this year something unusual was to happen…

In the categories that played concrete, the teams from Porto guaranteed the first place in the all 3 of them, and the junior team achieved a fantastic result. Pedro Cruz (CM Porto, 15 years old), a player with only two years of experience, was the best player in concrete of all categories, and a big piece in the motivation puzzle of the juniors team.

In miniaturgolf, the ladies’ team of Costa Nova took the lead from the beginning and maintained it until the end, but the ladies’ team from Porto was always just a step behind. Manuela Pinheiro was the best lady of the tournament.

As for the men’s category, MC Portugal was playing at home, but that wouldn’t be enough reason to expect a victory. On Saturday, during the first four rounds, CM Porto was on the front run during all the rounds and went to bed 11 strokes ahead. However, the first round of the next day brought with it a whole new story with MC Portugal reducing the difference of 11 to 0 in round five, and conquering 5 points on round 6. What seemed like a complete turnaround and the last words of this story, ended up turning out differently.

In the last round, CM Porto regained the lost points when João Nabais, from MC Portugal, missed the match point in the last lane and left the title up for discussion for a sudden death. Then, although the Porto’s team started with an ace and MC Portugal with a two… the victory went to the home team, MC Portugal.

The best player on miniaturgolf was the substitute of MC Portugal, João Miguel (17 years old) who entered the game after round 3, with and incredible average of 22,1.

It's a well-known fact that people that work for the common good are more exposed to criticism than those who have never done anything for minigolf except for their own selfish interest. That´s why we should be grateful for those that give up a lot of their personal time for the benefit of our beloved sport. With this post I wish to THANK all the Minigolfnews' reporters.
