Blue moments in European Cup


Europe 27 Oct 2007 at 17:11 | Published by: JJM | Views: 3736 | News search

Blue moments in European Cup Uppsala BGK played mostly a colour of its own in European Cup 2007, and scored some of the greatest win margins ever seen in international minigolf competitions.

Silver medalists lost to Uppsala BGK 136 points in men’s team competition (3.24 points per player and round), and 48 points in women’s competition (2.29 points per player and round).

MGC Mainz took silver in women’s competition, after a tight last-round battle against MGC Knittelfeld (bronze) and BGC Neutraubling (fourth place). In men’s competition the defending champion BGS Hardenberg got silver, and MGC Bischofshofen bronze.

The competition was played at one of the most challenging felt courses in the world, the Munktell Arena indoor course in Eskilstuna, Sweden. The long lanes, very high hills and narrow obstacles taxed a heavy price for all careless shots — but also rewarded generously hole-in-ones for perfectly played shots.

Many players found themselves in a wild rollercoaster of round scores, the score going 10 points up or down from round to round. Four players hit a “Royal Flush” on the table, using four colours in four rounds: David Bílek of MGC Olomouc (44 32 36 27), Robert Krof of MGC Bischofshofen (28 36 31 41), Corina Reinisch of BGC Neutraubling (37 47 29 34), and Karin Wiklund of Uppsala BGK (29 39 67 34).

The coolest game was shown by Carl-Johan Ryner of Uppsala BGK, with an all-blue set of seven rounds (27 27 25 26 29 27 23 = 26.29). His team-mate Anders Olsson showed some signs of human mortality, by slipping one non-blue round into his score­card (25 25 29 30 29 25 25 = 26.86). A sensational performance was seen also from Jessica Rengbrandt of Uppsala BGK, who was the only female player to achieve a blue total score (28 31 27 29 34 30 27 = 29.43). These three were the only players to score an average below 30 points per round.


European Cup is played yearly in October, with club teams of 6+1 players in men’s competition, and 3+1 players in women’s competition. The tournament is based on total points of all played rounds: it is not a knock-out cup competition.

Since 1966 the European Cup has been played 28 times on beton, 12 times on eternite, once on E+B combination, once on E+F combination, and now for the first time on felt only. Open System courses have never been used in major tournaments of WMF or its predecessors.
