On Sunday the May 4th 2014 the third match day of the Landelijke Hoofdklasse (LHK), the highest minigolf competition in the Netherlands, MGC Oirschot took their 3rd win in a row and took a six points lead in the overall standings.

This time the elite players of Dutch minigolf played in Appelscha. The weekend on the beautiful felt course in Appelscha, host of the 2013 Seniors European Championships, was blessed by good weather.

On Saturday all teams were very active to try to prepare themselves for a important match. Which teams will attack the leaders in the standing MGC Oirschot? Which teams has to start worrying about relegation. On felt a lot can happen, so everybody realized this match was the key to the rest of the season.

Favorite for the win were the home team of MGC Appelscha, last in the standings and MGC Drachten, who play very often in Appelscha. Will they be able to defeat MGC Oirschot?

MGC De Vrije Slag from Wageningen took the lead after round 1 with a 197, with a round of 29 by good-old Wilbert van Helmond. MGC Zoetermeer was second (204) and leader MGC Oirschot was on third place with 205. Favourite MGC Drachten started slow with a 226 on fifth place and their win was already out of sight.

In the second round home team MGC Appelscha came up with a 192, with a 28 of Zeno Folkertsma and a 29 of Roelof Hooijsma and they were now second after round 2. De Vrije Slag played 203 and was still in the lead.

Third round was close between all teams and nothing decisive happened. MGC De Vrije Slag was still in the lead, 5 strokes in front of Appelscha and 7 before Oirschot. It all came down to the last round.

In round 4 the triple champions MGC Oirschot proved why they rule Dutch minigolf in the last 3 years. With a brilliant 192 they took the victory and the 6 point back in the trunk of the car to Spoordonk. Chris Campfens played 28 and youngster Jeroen van Holland, making his debut inside the team, did it even better with 26!

MGC De Vrije Slag fell to third place due to a round of 217, also Appelscha passed De Vrije Slag and stayed on second place, taking some important points in the battle for relegation. RMC De Hole Ridders finished last and desperatly needs a good result in the next 2 matches to avoid relegation.

Best player of the day was Ruud Slappendel of MGC Zoetermeer with 114 strokes (28,5 average)

Next match is in Zoetermeer on MOS (Dutch system) on May 11th, with hometeam MGC Zoetermeer starting as the big favorite.
