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...

Youth German Championship in Murnau

Germany 01 Aug 2012 at 23:14 | Published by: mindthegap | Views: 7288 | News search

Youth German Championship in Murnau The Bavarian town Murnau hosted the Youth German Championship from the 19th to 21st of July. It's a nice town in a beautiful scenery, and the courses, Eternit and concrete, are located at the shore of the lake "Staffelsee", with a great view over the lake. As the courses often host national and international tournaments everything was organized very well.

It must have been a very smooth competition for the main referee Volker Missionier as there were only a few interruptions due to rain. Compared to the Seniors German Championship in Berlin, where he acted as a main referee as well, with more than 10 hours interruption it must have been a relatively easy job for him this time. But once he had to warn a cat making itself comfortable in the end circle of the Eternit lane "sticks" (look for the photo).

The individual ranking at Youth Championships in Germany is generally split into four categories - by age and by sex. The younger kids (called Schüler in German) are aged up to 14 and the juniors are aged from 15 to 19 (called Jugend in German).

The local Michaela Zwirlein from Murnau won the female kids category with a total of 336 (average 28.00) only 3 shots ahead of Lena Hengstler from Singen and Laura Heckel from Arheilgen with the same total of 339 (average 28.25). So a play-off had to decide the places 2 and 3, won by Lena. Last year's winner Maike Haupt reached the 4th place.

The male kids category was won by Manuel Szablikowski from Mainz with a total of 307 (average 25.60) 8 shots ahead of Pascal Fischbeck from Arendsee with a total of 315 (average 26.25). Benedict Schwickert from Inzlingen came 3rd with a total of 320 (average 26.65).

Vanessa Peucker from Dormagen-Brechten, who reached a 3rd place last year, won the junior women category in a convincing manner with a total of 301 (average 25.10) in front of the local Katharina Benn from Murnau with a total of 310 (average 25.85). Last years winner Annika Dellmann from Neheim couldn't defend her title but reached the 3rd place (total: 319, average: 26.60).

Andreas Schneider from Arheilgen was the leader from the 1st round on and never lost the lead. He started with an incredible 22 on concrete and played only rounds of 20 or 21 on Eternit, except one 25. He won the championship in an absolutely convincing manner with a total of 284 (average 23.65). The fight for the 2nd place was more exciting. In the middle of the tournament positions chanegd from round to round, but at the end Thomas Sieber from Olching was in front with a total of 297 (average 24.75) only 2 shots ahead of Marcel Waleska from Göttingen with a total of 299 (average 24.90) who came 3rd.

The team competition was also split in two categories: kids and juniors. The team from Mainz won the kids category with a total of 701 (average 29.2) followed by Castrop (total: 718 ,average: 29.9) and Murnau (total: 729, average: 30.4) on the 3rd place.

It was much closer in the junior team category. The team from Arheilgen won with a total of 624 (average 26.0) only 3 shots ahead ofDormagen-Brechten (total: 627, average: 26.1).The team from Göttingen came 3rd only 2 further shots behind (total: 629, average 26.2).

After the Youth German Championship, the German Youth National Coach Petra Szablikowski fixed the nominations for the YWC in Bad Münder, also in Germany (follow link at the bottom).
