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...

Miroslav Čibik takes Minigolf Photo of the Year 2009
Three most popular photos of the vote.  (Photo by M Čibik, J Pfanzelt,E Tiekstra 2009)

Unusual themes were the key to top positions in the vote for Minigolf Photo of the Year 2009. Miroslav Čibik, a 15 years old boy from Slovakia, took the first place in the vote, with photo of a player making aggressive gestures after an unlucky situation in minigolf. This photo attracted 9.5% of the votes, where the theoretical maximum was 18.2% (10 points from each 10+9+8+7+6+5+4+3+2+1 points).

Johann Pfanzelt from Austria took second place, collecting 8.5% of the votes with his photo of a minigolfer playing from deep waters at a flooded minigolf course. Erik Tiekstra of Netherlands received 8.2% of the votes, with a photo from a winter competion on a minigolf course covered in snow.

20 photos were nominated to the vote by Minigolfnews.com staff, based on submissions from the public at our discussion forum some weeks before the vote.

Pasi, you´re right.You have got a good memory. This photo was taken in Cheb. I´m glad, that I took that photo, because I´ve never done such good photo, since that time.
Mariano, thanks for your congratulation, I will try to continue in taking photo, but minigolf is number one for me. :-D

I just realized that I probably have been there when the winning photo was taken. It definitely is from the beautiful Cheb concrete course, host of the SEC and SNC 2010. If I am not mistaking, that must be the legendary coach match on Saturday afternoon at Czech Junior Trophy. The player in picture is one of the local club players. The coach match was played as a one-ball round and if I remember correctly, it was won with a score of 26 or 27!

Congratulations Miro. Looks like you you are not just very talented minigolfer but photograph as well. Keep up the good work!
