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...

Record Set at 1st Irish Open


Ireland 20 Feb 2017 at 16:33 | Published by: PatPenguin | Views: 7396 | News search

Record Set at 1st Irish Open

It's not often when the first of something leads to a record being set in a sport that's been played competitive for quite a while. However, the first Irish Minigolf open held on February 17-18 at Rainforest Adventure Golf in Dublin saw just that as Pauli Kuikka shot a 23 on the 2nd round to set an MOS World Record. Unfortunately that great round wasn't enough to keep him at the top of the leaderboard after 8 rounds. On his performance Pauli mentioned "I came off the course shaking, I was so happy to do that in a tournament."

Out of the field of 36 competitors (half from Ireland and half representing 4 other countries across Europe), Adam Kelly from Great Britain rose to the top shooting a 219 and finishing 4 strokes ahead of current BMGA Chairman, Sean Homer. Adam's steady play of 7 rounds under 30 (including 2 rounds of 25), and one right at the 30 mark, propelled him to the top spot, but it wasn't without drama. All 4 of Adam's winning strokes were earned in the last round (one of his two 25s) as Sean put the pressure on with a 29. Karl Lakos of Austria rounded out the podium finishing 11 strokes behind Adam. For this efforts, Adam walked away with a cool 1500 EUR.

Irish participants also competed in the Irish National Minigolf Championships. Jamie Campbell shot a 262 to claim that title and finish 14th overall in the Irish Open competition. Jamie's efforts earned him 350 EUR.

Top Spots: Irish Open
Adam Kelly - 219
Sean Homer - 223
Karl Lakos - 230

Top Spots: Irish National Championship
Jamie Campbell - 262
Seán Kelly - 268
Shane Reilly - 271

This was an Irish Minigolf Association event, backed by The World Minigolf Sport Federation. The World Minigolf Sport Federation (WMF) is the umbrella organization of 63 Minigolf sports associations worldwide with continental associations in Africa, America, Asia, Europe and Oceania. There are more than 38,000 competitive minigolf players registered with the WMF via the 63 member nations, with 900-plus clubs between them. Over 1,000 courses are approved for official competitions and over 1,500 minigolf tournaments are held each year.

Editor’s Note: First I want to apologize to Australia. I can only pick one flag for an article so I went with New Zealand on this part as we’ll be doing a second part specifically on Allan so we’ll use Australia then! However, we did sneak both into the picture.
