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...

Just as two years back in Bad Munder the German Youth teams takes both the girls and the boy’s team title. On the second and last day of team competition in the Youth World Championships in Lahti, Finland, there was some drama but in the end the drama was never really about the gold medals.

In the girls team category the Germans was in the lead with three strokes ahead of Sweden, but on the first double round this morning the lead was extended to 18 strokes and it seemed like the gold would go as expected to the German girls. However, on the 7 round on felt, the Swedish girls gained 9 strokes, making the gap only 9 to up to the Germans before the last eternit round. But 9 strokes is a lot for three girls to lose on one round of eternit, and when both the German girls and the Swedish girls played a mediocre ending round the end the German girls could celebrate the gold by a kept margin of 9 strokes.

The battle between for bronze was the real drama of the day. For more or less the whole competition the Austrian girls and the Russian girls was involved in the bronze battle. After the first day the Russians were in the lead by a narrow margin of 4 strokes. After this morning’s first double round it was the other way around with the Austrian girls in front by 6 strokes. And on the last round it was a real nail biter, with Russian Yulia Korytina putting real pressure on the Austrian girls by playing a 19. In the end it was the coolness of Austrian closer Lara Jehle that ended the last round with 10 straight aces to lead the Austrian team to bronze, one stroke ahead of the well fighting Russian girls (20 aces on the last seven lanes out of 21 possible) on the last round.

Individually it still Sweden’s Jasmin Hansson in top with 217 strokes. Jasmin is in the lead 3 strokes ahead of Austria’s Lara Jehle (220) and another 3 strokes behind is Annika Dellmann (223) of Germany, in third place. Natasja Huber of Switzerland played a good last double round of 50 strokes and is realistically the only girl that can shake the three currently on the podium. She is now 4 strokes behind bronze and another 8 strokes up for fifth position.

In the boys category there was not that much drama for the winners. The golden medals headed for the German boys were never really in doubt throughout the day. In the end the margin down to Sweden on silver position was a comfortable 40 strokes. The German boys was led by Sebastian Piekorz and Christian Zielaff, both in the end of the day in the individual lead.

In second position were the Swedes in the end 11 strokes ahead of chasing Austria. Austria was as close as 6 strokes before the last felt lap but the Swedish boys could keep the distance and somewhat extend it on the last lap for a silver position in the end. Down to fourth position taken by Czech Republic was a huge margin of 81 strokes.

Best individually is as already stated the two Germans Sebastian Piekorz and Christian Zielaff, both on 211 strokes. On bronze position are Sweden’s Alexander Dahlstedt two strokes behind on 213. Yet another two strokes behind Alexander the home favorite and reigning Match Play World Champions Eetu Ikola is found. Eetu was overall best on the second day and is on shared fourth place with Germanys closer Marcel Waleska.

Tomorrow is the stroke play finals played with lots of excitement and new medalist to be awarded.
