European visitors were left in the shadow of Americans
in this year’s US Masters, played on Open System
courses in Myrtle Beach (South Carolina, USA).
Hans Olofsson of Sweden, winner of US Masters 2005 and 2006, was left on 6th place
behind four Americans and Marek Špidra of Czech Republic.
Daniel McCaslin took his third US Masters title
and 4000 dollars of prize money,
cementing his position as the most successful
player in the history of the competition. (Last year
he lost to Olofsson in a sudden death play-off,
after a tied score on 12 competition rounds.)
Hawaiian Rumble and Hawaiian Village minigolf courses in Myrtle Beach
host US Masters competition yearly in October, and US Open competition in May.
Top-class European players used to have great success
in earlier years of these tournaments, but Americans
have been improving their game year after year. Local stars
like Daniel McCaslin have grown into maestros who control all parts of the game
with perfection, and offer a competition too tough for nearly any player of any country.
