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...

Hardenberg and Cuxhaven win 2nd Bundesliga match

Hardenberg and Cuxhaven win 2nd Bundesliga match

The 2nd Bundesliga match took place on the eternit course in Bad Münder near Hannover on the 9th of October. Bad Münder is well known by international players as there was a World Championship on the two courses (felt + eternit) in 2003. And Bad Münder will host the Youth World Championship next year and the men’s and women’s World Championship in 2013. Furthermore it is a popular course in Germany to run national competitions and training events for the squad players (the pool of players the national team is formed of) on. It seems to be an easy course as there were played some extraordinary low scores. The best was 78, an average of 19.50.

The weather was much better than during the 1st match although most players were not happy with the temperature of around 5 degrees Celsius in the morning. But it became warmer and warmer throughout the day up to 15°. So the tournament ran smoothly without interruptions.

Hardenberg started badly with a team round of 132 and ended up on a (for them) disappointing 4th place after the 1st round - 7 shots behind their most serious competitor Dormagen-Brechten. Apparently they didn’t cope with the cold weather conditions. This is not so surprising as they played the European Cup in Italian Vergiate with best weather just a weekend before. As Walter Erlbruch wrote in his report they better should have practised to stay naked in a fridge to get used to the cold. But in round 2 and 3 Hardenberg showed their quality and played two team rounds of 117 (an average of 19.5) to put themselves back on the top. At the end they won the match in a convincing manner 16 shots ahead of Dormagen-Brechten. Hardenberg’s best players and the best players of the day were Timo Greiffendorf and Alexander Geist with 78 (average of 19.5) each. Dormagen-Brechten showed an excellent and steady performance with four team rounds between 125 and 127. Their best player was Stefan Hecken with 81. Mainz reached a 3rd place 7 shots behind Dormagen-Brechten and 7 shots ahead of Bochum who came fourth. Marcel Noack was the best player from Mainz with 82. Arheilgen and Tempelhof showed a good performance but had one bad score in the team so ended up on the 5th and last place respectively. Their best players were Achim Braungart-Zink and Thorben Sielaff with 82 each. Tempelhof has to struggle for points in the next matches as they were on the last place twice and haven’t got any points so far.

The ladies turned the result of the 1st match upside down. Cuxhaven, who ended up on the last place last time, won 6 shots ahead of Göttingen. Mainz and Bensheim reached a shared 3rd place 19 shots behind Göttingen. And Olching, who won the last match, ended up on the last place further 14 shots behind. So everything is open in the women’s category after the 2nd match.

The ”Seagulls” from Cuxhaven (Möwe in the club name ”MC Möve Cuxhaven” means seagull) showed an excellent performance. All 3 total scores were below 90, and Andrea Reinicke was the best woman of the day with 81 (an average of 20.25). Göttingen had two total scores below 90, and Bianca Zodrow was the best but one woman of the day with 84. Mainz had to compensate the world champion Stefanie Kern, but even their top players Alice Kobisch and Nicole Gundert-Greiffendorf couldn’t manage that. So the winner of the European Cup in Vergiate had to share the 3rd place with Bensheim. Olching couldn’t rub out the very bad score of 113 by Frauke Eilts and ended up on the last place.

The first third of the season is over and the players who don’t feel like playing indoor tournaments or winter cups can fall into hibernation. The next league match will be in Brilon (on a challenging eternit course) on the 14th of April next year.
