Dace Kupce-Krievina made a rare visit to Latvian minigolf competitions, and left the usual favourite Madara Kirša far behind at Latvian Championships in Liepaja, which was also part 4 of Latvian Trophy 2009 season.
Dace played average score 23.40 at the eternite course of Liepaja. Women’s silver medalist Madara Kirša also reached a rare green total score in Latvian competitions, with average 24.90. Ilze Kupce was third in women, with average 26.30.
Latvian minigolf is traditionally more prestigious in women than in men. That was the case also this weekend, as Marek Tikerberi took gold in men’s competition with average 26.10, and Jánis Dziguns was second with average 27.20, after a tied score and sudden death play-off against Girts Ieleja.
Victory in team competition went to KKB team of the Kupce dynasty, with 300 points (average 25.00). Team Líva of the Kirša dynasty got silver with total score 301 points (average 25.08), only one point behind the winner. Limbazu OC was third with total score 323 (average 26.92).» photo of the winners
