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...

Svensson siblings won Swedish Championships

Svensson siblings won Swedish Championships

In terrible weather conditions the stroke play of the Swedish Championships was decided this afternoon. It was from time to time more or less pouring from the skies and wet conditions throughout the day. On top of that it was cold (12 degrees) and also from time to time quite windy.

On a normal competition even on felt it would probably have been more rain breaks, or even no play at all, but today, for the first time, a minigolf competition broadcasted was live in nationwide Swedish television. So all players and officials wanted to keep the schedule so that the broadcasting slot between 14.00 and 16.30 could include the final round and the winners were decided. So there were only short breaks to avoid the worst showers.

And even though the weather conditions were terrible some really nice play was performed by the top players. Best overall today was junior boy winner Markus Nilsson, from Jönköping, played incredible 30-29 on the two last rounds today in heavy rain. And by that he turned a place outside the medal podium this morning into a gold medal. Silver and bronze was taken by the couple of Tantogården players, Alexander Dahlstedt and Derice Shumilov Susoho, both seven strokes behind.

In the junior girls class Marielle Svensson, playing for Malmö, won by six strokes over Umeås Felicia Vikström. Another two shots behind was Jasmin Hansson on bronze position.

In the ladies class it was all along a battle between senior national team player Annelie Larsson, playing for Linjen, and national team player Jenny Erlandsson, playing for Kungälv. After round five Anneli was in the lead but a strong last lap in the rain (31) gave Jenny the gold. This was her first gold since leaving the junior classes. On bronze position came Sandra Bengtson from Uppsala, who had a difficult day in the rain, but still managed to keep out for bronze due to a good start of the competition on Wednesday.

In the men’s category it was expected to be a generation battle between the two biggest felt players in Sweden Carl-Johan Ryner, Uppsala and Filiph Svensson of Skoghall. And those two were also in the top from round one until the end. But there was also a third player that wanted a piece of the action, Fredrik Tagesson of Olofström. Fredrik who played the most offensive game of the three was never in top position but not far behind either. So before the last round it was Filiph 2 strokes ahead of Carl-Johan and Fredrik another two behind. And even if Fredrik came up alongside with Carl-Johan after half the round Carl-Johan could gain this strokes on the latter half and so after the final lane all three had made a 31 and thus keeping the positions from before this round. So Filiph Svensson did like his sister did and took the gold. Carl-Johan had to give in to the new generation felt king and had to settle for silver.

The TV-broadcast hade initially some technical issues with cameras not working in the rain, but once fixed it was a nice production to watch. With some more training one could reduce the waiting by playing on two lanes in parallel cutting back and forth, but neither the TV-team nor the officials had much experience about live Minigolf broadcasting. Jan Strandberg was acting as an expert commentator alongside with the commentator from SVT (Swedish Public Service TV) and he made a calm and initiated impression helping his colleague who sometimes did some strange comments.

Tomorrow will be the match play finals, also this will be on SVT starting at 12.30 and continuing until the competition ends.
