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...

Kevin Lacey is national champion of USPMGA and PPA

The reigning PPA champion (2008) Kevin Lacey is now also the reigning national champion of USPMGA, as he won US Open 2009 at Ball Fore adventure golf course in Worth, Illinois, USA.

Lacey is the second player in American minigolf history to hold the national champion title of both two federations, PPA and USPMGA. Brad Lebo did the same trick in 2006, winning both titles in the same year. Political unity between the two American minigolf federations may still look like a distant dream, but the top players have no problem combining these two leagues in their competition calendars.

Kevin Lacey played average score 33.75 at the difficult Ball Fore adventure golf course. Randy Reeves was second with average 34.63, 7 points behind Lacey. 2006 US Open winner Brad Lebo was third with average 35.00, 3 points behind Reeves.

The rest of the top 10 of this USPMGA event was occupied by current and former PPA top players, and two experienced European players from Czech Republic: Olivia Prokopová (7th) and Milan Sykora (10th).

The tournament included also a pairs competition: Kevin Lacey & Nate Nichols were best with team average 34.44, Brad Lebo & Randy Reeves were second with team average 34.81, and Rainey Statum & Charlie Greenwalt were third with team average 35.25.

Andy Richter, the co-host of Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien, played three rounds at the minigolf course together with the competition players, achieving round scores 43, 39 and 46. Material recorded during his visit will be seen in Tonight Show some weeks from now.

The official USPMGA website has results from before year 2000, possibly all tournaments that have ever been played, but the links to older results (of US Open) disappeared two years ago, I think.

Thank you Astra.

An idea for the USPMGA official website: keep the results of older years easily available. USPMGA website still has the HTML pages for US Open and US Masters results of all past years, but links to older results are missing (at least for US Open), so website visitors will not find any other results than the latest year. (Only we who have seen the links to older results some years ago, remember that they exist, and can possibly guess their correct links.)

Once I will receive photos fro Ball Fore from this year event I will update my website. I am having surgery on Wednesday so will need few days to recover before I work on website.
Two person team competition, top three:Lacey Kevin and Nate Nichols- 1st place, Lebo Brad and Reeves Randy- 2nd, Statum Rainey and Greenwalt Charlie-3rd. Total-8 teams. Full results will be updated on my website.
Amateur division 2 players:1st place Owens Calvin Dziekanowski Dave. Ladies- only one player , so Prokopova Olivia automatically 1st. Same story with Seniors- George McLeod.
