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...

Hettrich and Danner are the new Youth World Champions

Robin Hettrich, Germany and Martina Danner Austria are the new Youth World Champions after the final match play in Sochi today.

Robin started his day by winning against Swiss Kevin Sutter and Austrian Marc Cervinka. After that in the quarterfinal he met the only remaining Swedish hope Mattias Brännström won also this match.

In the semifinal he met the nr 1 ranked from the qualification ranked Lorenzo Levis, Italy. This was the tightest match of the day for Robin, who was ranked 4th after the qualifications, and in the end he won 5-4. In the final he met his Team mate, the closing man of the German Gold Team, Andreas Schneider. The final was to be a clear 4-1 win for Robin who upgraded the silver medal from last year in Waldshut.

The bonze match was won by Sebastian Peffer, Germany over Lorenzo Levis, securing an all German Medal Podium.

The boy’s semifinalist was ranked 1, 3, 4 and 18th after the qualifications. That success of the top ranked players did not happen in the girls match plays.

In the girls it was not so surprising an Austrian Girl taking the Gold. More surprising was that it was neither Lara Jehle nor Jacqueline Helm, but the 10th ranked Martina Danner.

Martina won the tight first match over home favorite Siranush Balasanyan of Russia. After that she won over her better ranked Teammates Helm and Jehle in quarter and semifinals. In the final she met yet another surprise, Swedish Lina Liljegren.

Liljegren started her day by meeting the only other remaining Swedish girl, Sara Karlsson. Even if Liljegren was better ranked, Sara had a great season behind her, Swedish Champion and other god results, making her the small favorite. But Lina took the underdog advantage and won 6-3. Then she was even more underdog when she knocked out the top ranked German favorite Anne Bollrich by 4-3. Also in the semifinal she was not the favorite when knocking out and fifth ranked Jasmine Uhl.

In the final it seemed to be a completely open story between the two surprice girls Martina and Lina. In the end Martina was the winner by 5-3, keeping up the Austrian success story on the Junior Girls side. Austria has taken gold medal individually 3 years in a row. 2008 and 2009 it was Karin Heschl and now Martina Danner.

The bronze match was won by Jasmine Ehm, Germany over Lara Jehle that couldn’t defend her bronze medal from last year.

It's a pity both for him and for Lorenzo Ciompi too. They were 1st and 2nd after qualification days and in the end only 4th and 9th. But this is the system...we all know you need to be not at top places in qualification rounds to win...

Congrats to Germany with winning almost all! Very well played... I think it is a pity Lorenzo Levis didn't come further then the 4th place. He played a really strong tournament and according to me deserved to win!
