Last weekend, the stage of SEC2009, Lamego’s concrete and eternit courses, received the 3rd weekend of the Individual National Championship.
Although the courses have suffered some changes due to the time gone by and to some harsh winters, the averages are still very low, as they were during the SEC2009.
In a few words, we could say that this weekend was a good chance for some of the first ranked increasing their advantages and preparing for a more comfortable last weekend of competition.
In juniors, João Miguel - MC Portugal (130 strokes – 5 eternit rounds) took the lead and gained an advantage over the second place that can make him, at least start, to dream of the title. Nevertheless, it’s important to underline the result of Carlos Teixeira – CM Porto, who was the best junior player with 123 strokes and who is now in 3rd place.
In the female juniors, Sílvia Oliveira - Vizelgolfe (126 strokes – 5 eternit rounds) continues her way to the title, although Luísa Lobão - MC Lamego (125 strokes – 5 eternit rounds) won the weekend.
In the female youths, Helena Ribeiro - Vizelgolfe (162 strokes – 5 eternit rounds), increased the diference for the second place, which is now of 40 strokes.
In male kids, a turn around happened, with Miguel Oliveira - Vizelgolfe (164 strokes – 5 eternit rounds), going directly to the top. With a difference of just 10 strokes, everything can happen.
As for women, Anabela Pereira - CM Costa Nova (121 strokes – 4 concrete rounds) continues on the lead of this category, increasing the difference by one point to the second place.
In the categories of seniors and oldtimers, there were some turnarounds and everything is now open for the last rounds.
In seniors, Domingos Silva - CM Porto (114 strokes – 5 eternit rounds) played the only blue round in eternit and was the best player in this system (together with Fábio Lima – youth player). With this great weekend, Domingos took the lead and acquired an advantage of 4 strokes for the second place.
In the oldtimers, Joaquim Cunha – CM Porto (117 strokes – 5 eternit rounds) who jumped from the 3rd to the 1st place, was the only oldtimer with a green average, and is 18 strokes away from the third, meaning that he will be fighting for the title only with Joaquim Oliveira – CM Porto, his team mate who is ranked second, with a difference of just 3 strokes.
Pedro Carvalho – CM Porto (105 strokes – 4 concrete rounds), in the men category, increased the difference for the second place by 5 strokes. The best round played on concrete (23) was the key to increase the advantage. With 5 rounds left, everything is open in this class.
Last, but not least, for sure, the results of the youth category: Fábio Lima – CM Porto (114 strokes – 5 eternit rounds), after a pause of 2 months, played his best minigolf and that was more than enough to provide him with a 11 stroke advantage for the last 4 rounds. However, the bad luck knocked on his door after the competition, while playing football with other young players from different clubs, and he suffered an injury on his shoulder, causing serious doubts concerning his continuation in this competition.
The last rounds will be played on 14th and 15th June, in Vizela.
