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...

Pauli Kuikka wins again in Askim


Sweden 04 May 2009 at 10:38 | Published by: Hans | Views: 5250 | News search

Pauli Kuikka wins again in Askim When Pauli won last years competition on the newly build artificial grass MOS course in Askim, Slottskogen, it was a surprise winner. Pauli is normally a C-class player on the other surfaces so a tournament victory was not on the map, but he did anyway. So this year it was time to show if it was luck or if this MOS course suites him really well.

In the preliminary rounds the best results where made by Swedish national team player Sandra Weaver with an average of 40,5. Also notable is the new course record of 36 made on the last round by the junior home team player Magnus Carlsson.

At the route to the final in Sundays cup play Pauli met, WMF General Secretary Roger Cadosch, Mattias Strand and Bengt Svensson. Bengt won over a Sandra Weaver in the quarter finals after a dramatic final where Sandra lead with 4 strokes with 2 lanes to go. But a seven for Sandra on the challenging bridge (lane 17) made it possible for Bengt to win by a two on the eighteen. On the other side of the cup-three Hans Bergström, Uddevalla and Magnus Carlsson, Askim had proceeded into the semifinal. When Hans made two high scores on lane 14 and 16 Magnus could easily take the final stand.

The final was a tight and well played match which ended in sudden death. On lane 3 a unlucky 3 for Magnus made once again Pauli the champion. So for another year Pauli can entitle himself the king of MOS in Sweden. Who will challenge him next year?

Online results work just fine. The idea was to test the system intenally. It worked fine. Hoepfully we will be able to advance the system again shortly and it will be used in larger competitions.

This tournament was supposed to use electronic scorekeeping. But we never got a link to live results. Everything OK with the result system?

These type of MOS course is a bit different from other Minigolf so I don't think its strange that different skills come into play. Here you don't need skills needed in normal Minigolf like extreme precision, ball knowledge, spin skills etc. On the MOS course in Askim you need putting skills and ability to handle situations that you haven't been able to practice in advance. Obviously Pauli has those skills.

Still no result list from sundays competition...? Anyway, congrats to Pauli, who showed to master the MOS courses and obviously is also a good man-to-man player.

The cup system is an identity problem for minigolf as a serious sport, because too often the winner is a "class B" or "class C" player, someone whom people don't view as a great player legend. So also the champion title gets a "class B" or "class C" status in people's minds.

That is not a problem with MOS, but a problem with the playing system. I want to say a bit more about this, maybe I will come back later to the MOS issue. I have to go now :P

I have difficulties to see that MOS is a fair form of surface to compete in, when two years in a row you put good players on the start and still you can win it as a class c-player. No offence meant, Pauli. This is strictly a way to see it statistically.

Nice to see that Sandra W was clearly the best in preliminary rounds. It gives credibility to MOS minigolf, when generally the best players get best scores also in MOS competitions.
