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...

German Teams Dominate U23 Nations Cup

German Teams Dominate U23 Nations Cup

Weather seemed to be the key word when it came to miniature golf tournaments over the weekend of May 14 & May 15. While the U.S. Open saw gusty and cloudy conditions, the Under 23 Nations Cup held in Bischofshofen, Austria was plagued by rains causing changes in schedule and two rain delays during Saturday’s rounds. However, the weather cooperated for the afternoon some moving from rainy to windy to sunny making a “perfect test of the tournament organization and players' skill”. Five countries were represented in the team competition, with the home Austria sending 3 teams and there were 29 overall participants between the various youth and kids divisions.

Despite the changing weather conditions, some excellent scores were posted in the qualifying rounds including some 22s. Although the home Austrians did well in the School Kids (under 15) division, taking 1st and 3rd, it was the German teams who steamrolled their way through the competition, first winning their groups and then dominating the semi-finals. Their only close match was against each other in the final, with the Germany 1 team winning by a slim margin as the two teams flip-flopped who won the last two rounds.

This tournament previewed the courses in Bischofshofen which will also be the home of the Youth World Championships in August.

The top results are as follows:

National teams:
1. Germany 1 (Pierre Bonacker, Sarah Schumacher, Johannes Lieber, Manuel Szablikowski)
2. Germany 2 (Daniel Bärsch, Tobias Richter, Patricia Gras, Tristan Kleiner)
3. Czech Republic (Boris Svoboda, Dominik Bertels, Ondrej Skaloud)

International Kids (U15) Championships (7 rounds):
1. Florian Haberl (AUT) 203
2. Henrik Andersson (SWE) 217
3. Lucas Schuster (AUT) 221

Note: Some information from this article was taken from WMF Facebook posts and we’d like to thank the organizers of the tournament for that information.
