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...

Two weeks ago the WMF 2013 season ending ranking list was published, but at that point in time the seniors lists where still not ready. Now they are and not surprisingly the leaders are Gaby Rahmlow and Markus Janssen, both from Germany.

With her total domination in 2013 ending with a historical triple in Appelscha it was not a surprise to anyone that Gaby Rahmlow would be the ladies number one. And frankly you might argue that there is Gaby and then there is nothing, and more nothing and then there is the rest. Gaby would actually still be in the lead if she could not count any of the record amount of 3352 points she earned in 2013, since she is leading with 3458 before her team mate Andrea Reinicke. On third place Sweden’s Bernice Thors are found another 68 points behind Reinicke.

The total amount of 7890 is the record level of points since WMF was starting the rankings in 2009 any class counted. The high score before this was held by Austrias Reinhard Schuster from his November 2012 ranking with 7661 points.

Other classes’ high scores are (3 of them set this new ranking of December 2013):

General class ladies: Anne Bollrich, Germany, 2013, 5572 points
General class men: Filiph Svensson, Sweden, 2013, 6492 points
Junior class girls: Annika Dellmann, Germany, 2013, 6199 points
Junior class boys: Philipp Lau, Germany, 2012, 6956 points

The five best senior ladies of the December 2013 WMF rankings are (last year’s position in brackets):

1. Gaby Rahmlow, Germany 7 890 points (1)
2. Andrea Reinicke, Germany 4 432 points (4)
3. Bernice Thors, Sweden 4 364 points (6)
4. Linda Lundberg, Sweden 3 868 (12)
5. Dagmar Hirschmannova, Czech Republic 3 860 (2)


If you only count the points from 2013 the four in top will still be the same, even if Linda Lundberg will rise to second position but still far behind Gaby. In as fifth on this list we find Austrias Maria Fuschelberger.

The five best ladies of 2013 according to WMF are:

1. Gaby Rahmlow, Germany 3 352 points
2. Linda Lundberg, Sweden 1 840
3. Andrea Reinicke, Germany 1 597 points
4. Bernice Thors, Sweden 1 501 points
5. Maria Fuschelberger, Austria 1 232 points


On the senior men’s list there has been a change in leader. The top ranked from the past two years Austria’s Reinhard Schuster has been forced to give up his top position to Germanys Markus Janssen. Reinhard is still at number two but 2013 was not the best of years for him and only counting this year will leave him in 16th position only.

For Janssen though it was a great year with one silver and one fourth place individually in Appelscha. This lead to a giant step up the list since many before him on the list was not really felt specialists, from eleventh position up to the top.

In third position we find last year’s number four Udo Rathje from Germany now passing his team mate Karl-Heinz Gerwert who drops down to ninth position.

The five best men of the November 2013 WMF rankings are (last year’s position in brackets):

1. Markus Janssen, Germany 6188 points (11)
2. Reinhard Schuster, Austria 5623 points (1)
3. Udo Rathje, Germany 5412 points (4)
4. Rene Schäppi, Switzerland 5030 points (14)
5. Herbert Bäk, Austria 4891 points (19)

On the men’s side it’s interesting to notice that of the top 5 above only 2 appears also on the list if you only count 2013. Markus Janssen will still be on top of this list only counting 2013 but second will be his team mate Michael Müller with god positions both in the Nations Cup, German Championships and also European Champions. Third we find the felt king from Appelscha Stefan Viberg from Sweden.

1. Markus Janssen, Germany 2328 points
2. Michael Müller, Germany 2248 points
3. Stefan Viberg, Sweden 2160 points
4. Herbert Bäk, Austria 2048 points
5. Horst Brandstätter, Austria 1966 points

Best nation in the seniors categories are still Germany.

The seniors ranking list is this time for the first time not put together by Eduard Schibli from Switzerland which has chosen to retire from this task. This time its taken over by C-G Andersson from Sweden and those who know C-G can assure that it will still be in good hands.
