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 and Göttingen win 4th Bundesliga match in Bad Münder (felt)

Hardenberg and Göttingen win 4th Bundesliga match in Bad Münder (felt)

The 4th match of the German Bundesliga took place on the felt course in Bad Münder. This course is well known by most international top players as the World Championships 2003 took place there as well as the Youth World Championships last year. And in a few months Bad Münder will again be the host for this year's World Championships. So this match is an excellent test for the German squad players who are nominated for the Nations Cup taking place soon in Bad Münder. The weather conditions couldn't have been better. Warm, dry and sunny throughout the second half of the week. So some very good scores could be expected.

This time the men's teams started first and both categories managed to finish all 4 rounds. At around 18:15 the match was finished.

The men's teams saw a hard fight between Hardenberg und Arheilgen. Hardenberg started with a phantastic team round of 159 and put themself on the top, 14 shots ahead of Arheilgen. But in the 2nd round Arheilgen countered with the best team round of the day (157) and nearly caught up to Hardenberg. They were only one shot behind. In the 3rd round Arheilgen managed to overtake and took the lead, only one shot ahead of Hardenberg. But this seemed to be like a challenge for the best German team pushing them to a top round again (160). So at the end Hardenberg won in a convincing manner with 66827.8), 16 shots ahead of Arheilgen with 68428.5). Mainz came 3rd with 70129.2) followed by Dormagen-Brechten with 70829.5).

Without a chance, Niendorf ended up on the last place with 74331.0). They had to replace Florian Wietz, who gave up in the 3rd round and didn't finish. Besides they had only 3 blue rounds (below 30) in their team. In comparison: Hardenberg had only 6 green (above 29) and 18 blue rounds. As the newcomer in the Bundesliga, Niendorf seems to have a lack of experience on felt courses. Particularly the felt course in Bad Münder is well known by the Bundesliga and often taken for league matches, as we don't have so many felt courses in Germany and Bad Münder is the German Centre of Excellence for minigolf.

The best player of the day was Lars Greiffendorf from Mainz with 10426.0), followed by Michael Koziol from Hardenberg and Dennis Kapke from Arheilgen, both with 10526.3). The best round was played by Dennis Kapke, a 22 in the 2nd round. With a preceding 1st round of 23 he had amazing 4522.5) after two rounds. What a score on felt!

There is not much change in the rankings of the men's teams. Hardenberg is still leading with a comfortable lead of 9 points on Arheilgen. Mainz and Niendorf changed places, so Mainz is now 3rd and Niendorf 4th. Dormagen-Brechten couldn't make up so much and is still on the last place with 6 points behind Niendorf.

The women's teams were dominated by Göttingen. Starting with a team round of 86 they took the lead and won in an absolutely convincing manner with 35029.2), 14 shots ahead of Mainz with 36430.3). Cuxhaven reached the 3rd place with 39633.0) followed by Olching with 39933.3). Bensheim-Auerbach ended up on the last place with 44937.4). They had to replace Anne Hempel who gave up in the 1st round and didn't finish.

Nicole Piechotta from Göttingen was the best lady with 11228.0), followed by Nicole Warneke from Cuxhaven with 11328.3) and Alexandra von dem Knesebeck with 11528.8)

There is also not much change in the rankings of the women's teams. Göttingen is still leading 6 points ahead of Mainz. Olching is still 3rd and Bensheim-Auerbach and Cuxhaven changed places, so Cuxhaven has reached the 4th place.

The next Bundesliga match will take place in Bad Münder again, but on the eternit course then, on the 2nd of June. This will be the next test for the German participants at the World Championships.
