After two days of training for World Championships 2009 at Fyn Arena in Odense, many players have noticed that indoor courses don’t always guarantee easy weather conditions. Relatively high temperature in the stadium, with quite sticky humidity in the air, is not the easiest possible weather to play in.
Sweden’s head coach Jan Strandberg estimates that the felt course gives hole-in-ones quite generously, but also includes some difficult lanes. Both minigolf courses have some lanes where uncertain players can easily get 7 points, so the score differences may become quite dramatic between the top players and the bottom of scoreboard.
These and more photos available now in the gallery section.
