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...

Uppsala defends title at European Cup with new team round World Record

The European Cup 2014, held on the eternit course in Schriesheim from the 2nd to 4th of October, will definitely go down in history. 167 blue rounds - 43 perfect rounds of 18 and 124 rounds of 19 are quite unusual. And we saw two new world records, and two others were equalled.

The men's team competition saw Tantogarden as the leader after the first two days. The two favourites Uppsala and Hardenberg followed in places 2 and 3, but quite close to Tantogarden. Half of the team rounds of Tantogarden and Hardenberg were blue, and Tantogarden even had a blue team average. Uppsala finished the 2nd day with the best team round of 11519.2). Olomouc also showed a phantastic performance and followed close behind in 4th place.

The final day saw team minigolf on eternit at its best. Uppsala started with another team round of 115 in round 7 and overtook Tantogarden. Hardenberg also got a blue team (118) and could win some shots on Tantogarden but even lost 3 shots on Uppsala. Hardenberg continued their phantastic game with another two rounds of 118 and succeeded to overtake Tantogarden in the last round. But even their three blue team rounds of 118 were not good enough to catch up to Uppsala, actually they lost a few shots on Uppsala every round. With another blue team round of 117 Uppsala kept the margin on Hardenberg in round 8. But Uppsalas last round topped everything. With a new team round World Record of 112 (20 - 19 - 18 - 18 - 18 - 19) (Ø 18.7) they secured the victory and won with 1065 and a blue team average of 19.7, 13 shots ahead of Hardenberg in 2nd place. Tantogarden ended up in 3rd place, only 5 shots behind Hardenberg. With a phantastic team average of 20.3 Olomouc also showed an excellent performance but only reached the 4th place.

The flood of blue rounds was unbelievable - especially on the last day. Anders Olsson finished the last day without a two. He got a triple 18 and equalled the World Record of Claude Hermes at the European Champonship in Luxembourg 1990. Together with his 6th round of 19 he got 7318.3) in the last 4 rounds (66 aces in a row) - a new World Record at international championships as far as I know. Another World Record was equalled by Pavel Gerža from Olomouc with 149 in the last 8 rounds (Ø 18.6): 18 - 18 - 19 - 20 - 18 - 19 - 19 - 18. With 170 in total (Ø 18.9) he was the best player. So this European Cup made history.

There weren't so extraordinary low scores in the ladies team competition, but the fight between the leading three teams was more exciting. Mainz was in lead after the first two days, only 2 shots ahead of Brno. Göttingen followed in 3rd place further 6 shots behind. There was no change before the last round, but Göttingen nearly caught up to Brno and was only 2 shots behind. Brno finished with a blue team round of 59 and equalled with Mainz (both 568, Ø 21.0), so after 9 rounds a sudden death play-off was necessary to decide the winner. Mainz won on the first lane and took the title. Göttingen showed a great performance on the last day, but even with the last team round of 58 they couldn't equal with Brno and ended up in 3rd place, only 1 shot behind Brno.

The best lady of the competition was Stefanie Blendermann from Olten with 18120.1).

A fantastic tournament, no doubt!
Nice weather the whole week, an extremely easy course and a very kind organization.
Congratulations Michael Ritschel!
The competition went on smoothly with almost no refereeing cases and full of excitement.
