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...

Three Question Series number 10 - Lutz Brune

Hi, it's Steve Lovell. I hope wherever you in the world, this finds you safe and well with those you hold dear. As we all know, minigolf has the incredible power to unite us all and during the time of Covid-19, this is heighetened. I've spoken to a few friends around the world to ask them the same three questions about the situation we face.

How badly has Covid-19 affected your country?

When do you think you could be playing minigolf again?

Have you managed to do any minigolf activities at home, like Puttathome or made any obstacles?

This is the final interview in our series, which has not only been a testing time for minigolf but for the world as one. I’ve spoken to minigolfers, either in this format or informally all over the world, and it is surreal that we are all going through the same situation at the same time. It has been a pleasure to speak to friends all over and I finally call on Lutz Brune of Germany.

Hello Steve, first of all, I would like to say thank you for choosing me as one of the Minigolfnews interview partners.

I think in a comparison to the rest of Europe, we got off relatively lightly here in Germany. Both in terms of economically and socially. Of course, there were and are necessary restrictions in place, but all in all, it has been tolerable for me.

We can already practice minigolf now and I think the first competitions will now take place in June. All of the national championships and leagues have been cancelled for the rest of 2020.

No, I did not do any activities like puttathome, but I very much enjoyed watching such videos on Facebook.

To everyone who has taken time out of their lives to jot a few words down, I really appreciate you doing so. Hopefully, before too long, we can talk for less and putt for hours. All the best to you, wherever you are.
