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...

Mainz and Hardenberg win 3rd Bundesliga match in Wittlich

Mainz and Hardenberg win 3rd Bundesliga match in Wittlich

The German Bundesliga has been awakened from minigolf hibernation for the 3rd match on the Concrete course in Wittlich on the 14th of April. After quite a long winter period in Germany this weekend was the first one this year you could really call a Spring weekend. So the competition could take place with mild and dry weather.

Nevertheless the men's teams competition had to be cut to 3 rounds because the match lasted too long and should be finished around 6 pm.

Whereabouts in Germany is Wittlich? Even many Germans may ask these question. Wittlich is a town in the South-West of Germany in a very beautiful scenery, the so called Moseleifel - famous for its cultivated wine. The nearest bigger city is Trier. Famous touristic highlights in the neighborhood are Bernkastel-Kues, Zell an der Mosel, Bitburg and Gerolstein (famous for its mineral water). So this area is worth a holiday trip. By the way - the oldest concrete course in Germany is close-by in Traben-Trarbach.

The concrete course in Wittlich has recently been renovated, but many players were not happy with the state of the course. But the event was organized very well by the leaseholder of the course, supported by the small local minigolf club MC Wittlich, with an excellent catering.

It was an exciting day for the men's teams. Dormagen-Brechten was in lead after the first round and kept the lead in the second round. They were 2 shots ahead of Hardenberg and further 2 shots ahead of Mainz before the final round (the competition was cut to 3 rounds for the men's teams). After the first two players in the last round Mainz caught up to Hardenberg and kept the tie until the end. With 56031.1) Mainz and Hardenberg were the shared winner teams. The red average (above 30) shows that apparently it was a difficult and challenging concrete course. Such an average for the winning men's team is quite unusual in the Bundesliga although the weather conditions were quite good.

Because of a very bad round (41) of Dormagen's Alexander Junkermann which could not be compensated by his team mates, his team ended up on an unlucky last place with 57331.8). Arheilgen reached the 3rd place with 56931.6), 2 shots ahead of Niendorf.

Dennis Kapke from Arheilgen was the best player with 8729.0). The best round (26) was played by Mainz's Sascha Spreier.

There is no change in the rankings of the men's teams after the 3rd match. Hardenberg is still leading with 7 points ahead of Arheilgen. Niendorf is on the 3rd place, followed by Mainz and Dormagen-Brechten.

The women's teams started first and were less players, so they could finish 4 rounds. The winner was Göttingen with 37731.4), followed by Mainz with 39432.8) and Olching with 40333.6). Cuxhaven reached the 4th place with 41234.3) in front of Bensheim-Auerbach with 41934.9). The best woman was Bianca Zodrow with 11829.5).

After 3 matches Göttingen is the leader ahead of Mainz and Olching.

The next Bundesliga match will take place on the felt course in Bad Münder (host of next the World Championships) on the 5th of May.
