Steve with Olivia after the Tournament  (Photo by Steve Lovell)

It's no surprise to see Olivia's name on top of a major tournament leaderboard and on June 11th her's was at the top of the World Crazy Golf Championships for the second time. The 2017 tournament took place on June 10th & 11th at the famous Hastings Adventure Golf and featured the largest purse in the event's history with £1000 for the overall winner. There was also a top prize of £500 for the best novice winner. Olivia shot a 235 over the 7 rounds to seal the win over our own blogger Steve Lovell. Jimmy Exall became the World Crazy Golf Novice Champion with a seven-round score of 255.

For the complete details of the event, check out the BMGA article. Below we've summarized some of the links, which are also reflected in the article, and there are many more in the BMGA article.

For more insights into the tournament, Steve provided a two part blog of the activities and his chase to beat Olivia. In
Part 1 Steve details his the pre-tournament preparation, which includes his fair share of sampling food and ales. In Part 2 we get a blow by blow account of the intensity of the tournament and what really goes into trying to win that top prize against some of the best putters in the world.

The top scores in the pro division were:

1. Olivia Prokopova 235 (-17) - £1000
2. Steve Lovell 240 (-12) - £750.
3. Will Donnelly 241 (-11) - £500 (playoff)
4. Chris Harding 241 (-11) - £300
5. Adam Kelly 242 (-10) - £200 (playoff)
