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 wins first Bundesliga match 2012/13

Hardenberg wins first Bundesliga match 2012/13

The small Bavarian town Bad Feilnbach, located southeast of Munich near the famous lake Chiemsee, hosted the first match of the Bundesliga season 2012/2013 on the 16th of September. In contrast to the last season it was raining on the last practice day, the Saturday, but sunny on the competition day, the Sunday. The photo is from Saturday. So the match on the concrete course ran smoothly without any interruptions.

Because of the withdrawal of the Bochum team from the 1st Bundesliga there was one place more free for teams of the Northern and Southern 2nd Bundesliga, but only Hamburg-Niendorf wanted to promote. So this season only 5 men's teams fight for the German team Champion.

Of course Hardenberg is the favourite of the men's teams again. But Arheilgen can be seen as a serious opponent. Reinforced by Marco Henning, the Vice World strokeplay Champion 2011, who changed from Berlin-Tempelhof to Arheilgen, and with a returned Oleg Klassen, back from Australia, (he couldn't play the last matches of the last season) the team might be strong enough to beat Hardenberg. And apparently Achim Braungart-Zink, the new European strokeplay Champion 2012, and Andreas Schneider, the new Youth World Champion 2012, are in good form. Mainz is also reinforced by Miroslav Stoparic, a former Bundesliga player, and two players from the former Bochum team changed to other Bundesliga clubs. Dormagen-Brechten could attract Patrick Bothmann and the newcomer Hamburg-Niendorf, just promoted to the 1st Bundesliga, won Stephan Behrens as a new player. Hamburg-Niendorf with the European team Champion 2012 Martin Stöckle hopes to keep the league what is always very difficult for a new team. For further details have a look at the brochure for the new season. All teams are introduced in detail.

There is not so much change in the women's teams. Mainz is reinforced by the new European matchplay Champion 2012 Anne Bollrich. So they hope to have an advantage in the duel with Göttingen.

Hardenberg again fulfilled their role as the favourite and won with 63126.3), followed by Arheilgen with 64126.7). The newcomer Niendorf had a good start into the season and reached the 3rd place with 64727.0). Far behind the top three teams, Dormagen-Brechten ended up on the 4th place with 67027.9), followed by Mainz with 67528.1).

The best players were Arheilgens Oleg Klassen and Hardenbergs Harald Erlbruch with 10125.3) and his team mate Mike Mann with 10225.5).

The women's team competition was won by Göttingen with 32927.4), followed by Bensheim-Auerbach with 33427.8) and Mainz with 33828.2). Mainz lost the 4 shots on Bensheim in the last round. Olching reached the 4th place with 35729.8) in front of Cuxhaven with 36330.3). So the two favourites Göttingen and Mainz are among the leading trio.

The best ladies were Bianca Zodrow and Alexandra vom dem Knesebeck from Göttingen, both with 10626.5), and Claudia Kuhn from Bensheim-Auerbach with 10827.0).

The next Bundesliga match will take place on the Eternit course in Hamburg-Niendorf on the 21st of October. This is the home match of the Niendorf team. All other matches are held on neutral courses. Only the team that has been promoted has a home match.
