That would be excellent. I've been leveraging the BMGA site for information about individual tournament but would love a season long wrap-up!

All green and gold for Germany in Bad Munder

All green and gold for Germany in Bad Munder
The German double gold teams with all coaches celebrating  (Photo by Achim Braungart-Zink 2012)

Dressed in all green the German junior squads set out on Thursday to secure a double team gold at the Youth World Championships in Bad Munder. The boys had more or less secured the gold already yesterday by leading with a huge 29 stroke margin. For the German girls it was a bit tighter with Sweden only ten strokes behind.

The Swedish girls took two strokes on the first felt lap on Thursday morning and were only 8 strokes behind the German girls. But after that the home team showed that closer than this was noting they would allow the Swedish girls to be. After the last lap the margin was a big 23 strokes. Sweden won the silver medal and Austria won bronze.

The German boys where from the beginning showing that they wouldn’t let anyone else take the gold medal from them. Already after the first double round on Wednesday the margin down to second team Sweden was 18 strokes. And then they German machine continued and in the end they had won 7 of 8 team rounds. Only losing to Sweden and Switzerland in round 7 on felt when Switzerland played an amazing 155 (25,8) including a new course record by Daniel Moser with 22, in the battle for bronze. The Germans also made a rare blue team lap on eternit with 118 strokes (19,8).

In the end the German team won by a huge 53 strokes margin and the skills of the German boys can also be seen in the individual standings where all 7 boys are within top 11 and 6 within top 7. Seeing these incredible results is making you wonder what position this team results would have given next year in the General class played at the same courses. I am pretty sure this is a top 3 result also next year.

Best individual after two days are:

Ladies:
1. Annika Dellmann, Germany, 206
2. Lara Jehle, Austria, 207
3. Katharina Benn, Germany, 207
4. Sara Karlsson, Sweden, 212
5. Vanessa Peuker, Germany, 213


Mens:
1. Robin Hettrich, Germany, 188
2. Andreas Schneider, Germany, 190
3. Sebastian Piekorz, Germany, 191
4. Marcel Waleska, Germany, 191
5. Anders Brandt, Sweden, 192


Tomorrow the stroke play finals will be played.
