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 wins but Weaver dominates

Uppsala wins but Weaver dominates
The Podium of the Elitserien 2009, 1: Uppsala BGK 2: BGK Jönköping 3: Tantogårdens BGK  (Photo by Piet Tiekstra 2009)

Once again Uppsala BGK wins the Swedish Elitserien. This time the series was supposed to be tougher than ever and at least Jönköping and Tantogården would be able to take the victory. Nevertheless it was Uppsala that won for the fifth consecutive year. The last round in Jönköping was never that much exciting for the top teams. Without any big surprises in the Saturday matches the medals was already decided after the 5 matches on Saturday. Uppsala took gold, Jönköping silver and Tantogården bronze.

The remaining two matches on Sunday were more thrilling for the 3 teams in the bottom, which two teams had to leave. Kungälv played two equal games in a row the last two games and by that they managed to keep on the right side of the line by better strokes than Gullbergsbro, who was their opponents in the last draw. Must been nervy for the closer Hans Olofsson in Kungälv on the last lane, but he made it and aced the flash for another year in Elitserien for Kungälv.

This weekend was dominated by Sandra Weaver, who played an astonishing game and used only 9 twos in the seven laps on the not so easy course of Jönköping. With an average of 19,3 she lead as closer her Jönköping to a full point weekend by beating Uppsala in the last game. Second best this weekend was Carl-Johan Ryner, Uppsala with 20,0.

The team of the weekend was:
Sandra Weaver, Jönköping (19,3)
Carl-Johan Ryner, Uppsala (20,0)
Jonas Gustavsson, Jönköping (20,1)
Gustav Björnberg, Tantogården (21,0)
Anders Olsson, Uppsala (21,4)

The total team of the season is (just summing their average on felt, beton and eternit):

1 Anders Olsson, Uppsala BGK (79,8)
2 Jonas Gustavsson, BGK Jönköping (80,4)
3 Sandra Weaver , BGK Jönköping (80,6)
4 Gustav Björnberg, Tantogårdens BGK (82,8)
5 Lars Brown, Uppsala BGK (83,7)
6 Lars Kvael, Skoghalls BGK (85,3)
7 Erik Tiekstra, Tantogårdens BGK (85,4)
8 Filiph Svensson, Skoghalls BGK (86,2)
9 Hans Olofsson, Kungälv BGK (86,9)
10 Linus Sundström, BGK Jönköping (87,0)
10 Marcus Johansson, Södertälje BGK (87,0)

Worth mentioning is also three players that only played two out of the three weekends. They are Carl-Johan Ryner Uppsala, Martin Sjöberg, Jönköping and Thomas Pölder, Uppsala. All three probably on this top ten list if they had played all three weekends.

Hey everyone! Check out the teams in the Olympic Show Jumping - Male & Female!
An out dated rule that certainly needs changing quickly.

Mixed teams is not a 100% black-and-white question, good vs. evil. In countries like Germany or Austria, using a mixed minigolf league would reduce the number of women in top-class leagues by 75% or more, and make it very difficult for new talents to get a chance in top-class teams to try and learn.

Anyway it is interesting to be part of a rare sport in the world, where men and women can compete side by side. Eternite is the ultimate opportunity for gender equality, because any difference in power or stamina will not have any effect (as seems to be the case already on felt courses).

Seems like we haven't com every far since 98 or so when Karin couldn't play either. Why would she have played if they won? Jönköping has no women's team this year. (And there is no women's series in Sweden for example because of a lack of female players.) This feels more like punishing women than not... I feel that if a woman, regardless of who she is, is good enough to play on a men's team and help them win and get to the European Cup then she should be able to play there. I have NOT written that there shouldn't be woman's teams. I personally feel that this is more demeaning to women in the sport as well as being counterproductive to the sport in general. What century are we living in? It would be great PR for the sport as well. It is fine in other sports such as hockey... why not minigolf?

If Jönköping would've won with the team at the Swedish Champs then she could show it at the EC aswell.....
I think internationally it is good to have different classes (women and men) because otherwise there would be almost no women left in the team minigolf.

No Erik, the stupid rule that states that only men can play on the team. What were you thinking? Not sure I get what you mean.... sorry.

What stupid rule? The rule that you have to win with the team at the Swedish Championships?

...and a damn shame that she won't get the chance to try and close in the same fashion at EC due to a stupid rule.

Congratulations to the winners and great play Sandra. A pity we couldn't do anything to stop it this weekend/season....
