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...

After the team double yesterday the Germans achieved another double in the individuals.

Germanys Roman Kobisch from Mainz was in the leading position from the beginning on. With two combination rounds of 44 and 45 on the 1st day he set a standard which nobody could keep up to. So he has never been in danger to loose the lead and won with 280. But at the end the margin was only 6 shots to Austrias Herbert Bäk who finished with 286 on the 2nd place. Robert Kullick from Berlin Tempelhof, the new Seniors German Champion, came 3rd with 292.

Last years champion Stefan Viberg from Sweden ended up on the 30st place. Last years vice champion and current number one of the World Ranking List, Markus Janßen from Mainz, reached an 8th place. After a bad start on the 1st day he had to struggle to reach the finals. But he showed a kind of winner instinct and kept up to the finalists with an excellent performance on the 2nd day. Austrias Herbert Bäk could improve one place this year. After the bronze medal last year it's a silver medal for him this year.

No wonder that the German men's team won as 5 Germans are on the first 8 places.

Things were more exciting in the ladies competition. No German lady was leading after the 1st day, it was Czech's Dagmar Hirschmannova who was in lead. For me it's not surprising as she used to play for the former Nuremberg club in Bavaria in the 80s and 90s, so it might have been a kind of "home match" for her.

Some German ladies even had to struggle to reach the finals cut after the 1st day. Alice Kobisch, for example, found herself far away from the leading players. But she also showed winner instinct and kept up place by place from round to round. In a dramatic final she even beat her team mate Andrea Reinicke from Cuxhaven by just one shot with an amazing 24 on concrete in the last round - the decision was made on the last lanes 15 - 17. Andrea Reinicke beforehand equalized with Dagmar Hirschmannova at the end of the 2nd day and overtook in the final rounds. So the winner is Germanys Alice Kobisch from Mainz with 304 only one shot ahead of her team mate Andrea Reinicke. Czech's Dagmar Hirschmannova could equalize with Germanys Nicole Warnecke in the last but one round. Both ladies finished with the same result: 311. A sudden death play-off was necessary to decide the 3rd place. Dagmar won and conquered the bronze medal.

As mentioned yesterday, last year’s winner, Germanys Gaby Rahmlow, and vice champion, Sweden's Linda Lundberg, are not participating this year. Bernice Thors from Sweden, last years bronze medalist, reached an 8th place this year.

It's also no wonder that the German ladies team won as all the 4 German ladies are on the first 5 places.
