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...

April Day: Walter Erlbruch resigns from Minigolf

April Day: Walter Erlbruch resigns from Minigolf

At a suddenly called for press conference in Frankfurt, Germany this morning Minigolf legend Walter Erlbruch reviled that his resigning from the sport immediately.

Minigolfnews where the only press attending live at this press conference. In a long and partly quite emotional monologue Walter explains that this decision has grown over some years now. The main reason is that he is tired of spending that much time and energy on the road and wants to spend more time on his life outside Minigolf. He also feels that he has won all there is to win and that it becomes a bit boring to actually win all the time.

Now its time to let the younger players through both in Hardenberg and in the National Team. Lastly he opens for a comeback in a few years from now, but surprisingly he states that will be on the MOS course then. This is the only surface I haven't won on yet and I am a bit curious about it. So maybe in the future I will go to UK or US to try my skills.

UPDATE: This was of course an April fools-day joke. We didn't have a pressconference with Walter and what we know, Walter isn't resigning (yet).

The only thing that was probable to be true in this news is the fact that there was only one journalist in such a press conference. But that's what makes a good April's lie, you gotta mix some truth with it.

Perhaps the last paragraph shouldn't be taken as a joke. He'd be welcomed & maybe enlightened a bit! ;)

Average 23.75 on felt at Veritas Teamgolf

Finland 30 Mar 2010 at 18:51 | views: 5992 | Comments: 4

How low scores are possible on felt courses, when the players have 4 chances per round to try again the same lane, if they are not satisfied with the score that they got for the lane? For example 22 for one round, and average 23.75 for the whole tournament. That ...

Unfortunatelly the term of this competition collided with the annual meeting of the Czech Minigolf Federation so only 11 pairs came to play indoor felt marathon in Decin. The aim of the most players was to get in the TOP 10, which was not so difficult. During ...
