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...

Wellenius gets win margin 4.17 points per round on felt


Finland 08 Jun 2008 at 20:51 | Published by: JJM | Views: 4290 | News search

Wellenius gets win margin 4.17 points per round on felt Juha Wellenius played in a class of his own, 4.17 points per round better than the second best player, at a national felt competition in Turku, Finland on 7–8 June 2008.

This would be the new Finnish record for the greatest win margin of all time (points per round) — had not the same player scored an even greater win margin in December 2006, when he won by 5.00 points per round, and scored the Finnish record 25.50 (average score, four rounds on felt).

Win margins in minigolf are usually less than one point per round, when many top-class players are present. Sensational win margins of three or four points per round are sometimes seen in felt competitions, when a very talented player has home field advantage on a difficult course.

At European Cup 2007 the minigolfing world witnessed the sensational win margin of 3 points per round between Ryner – Olsson duo and the rest of the world, at the difficult felt course of Munktell Arena. Juha Wellenius has taken win margins of 4 or 5 points per round at the felt courses of his home town Turku.

Born in 1966, Juha Wellenius is the most successful felt and beton player of all time in Finnish minigolf. He is five times Finnish champion on felt (1996, 1997, 2001, 2004, 2006) and four times Finnish champion on beton (1994, 1995, 1996, 1998).

Wellenius practically never plays eternite, however, and therefore we have seldom seen him in the national team. He has played twice at major championships on combination of felt and eternite: 1994 European Championships in Thessaloniki, and 2001 World Championships in Vaasa.
