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...

Jönköping won the Swedish Cup

This weekend the Swedish Cup was played at the decisive felt course of Uddevalla in the west of Sweden in beautiful sunshine. The modus was 4-men team with man-to-man score like in the U23.

It was a very long Saturday where the fourteen teams were divided into two groups, which meant that everyone would play 6 games. The last matches on Saturday were not finished until 10 pm and it was matches play in the dark after half past eight. Luckily there was good lighting on the course then.

The two groups on Saturday was won by Tyresö and Skoghall and this two teams was showing the best game and started to look like favorites to meet in the final. Already in the quarter finals against Jönköping, Tyresö lost and was out of the competition. Ersta won against Örebro 2, Örebro 1 won over Gullbergsbro and Skoghall won over Uddevalla. So after the quarter finals the four teams proceeding to the semifinals where all from group B.

In the first semi-final Jönköping and Örebro meet and this was won by Jönköping. The second semi-final was won by Skoghall against Ersta. So final in the end between Skoghall and Jönköping.

The match for third place was pretty dramatic but won in the end by Örebro with 2.5 to 1.5. So bronze to Örebro.

In the finals it was for a long time an advantage for Skoghall. The first match was a tight game and the remaining three was lead halfway by Skoghall. But Jönköpings Markus Karlsson managed to win the first and tight match against Mikael Lövgren for a 1-0 lead in the clubhouse for Jönköping. On the course Ulf Kristiansson and Filiph Svensson led their respective matches pretty clear so the whole final was to be decided by the match between Andreas Ekängen and Stefan Gillberg. Ekängen had for long a grip of this but Stefan "Laban" Gillberg managed to turn around a 2 strokes behind to a win on the last lanes and hence Jönköping had a 2-0 lead in the clubhouse.

There are always many heroes in a winning team but maybe Jönköpings Stefan Gillberg sleeps extra well tonight. Not only did he manage to turn his match in the final to reach a sudden death decision. Moreover, it was Stefan Gillberg who won lane in sudden death to reach the lane win over Skoghall by 2.5 to 1.5 on the third play-off lane and thus the gold was secured for Jönköping.
