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...

Tyresö and Sjöviken step up to Elitserien

Tyresö and Sjöviken step up to Elitserien

Last weekend the last round of the Swedish Team League was finished. This year the Eliteserien was already finished in July, but the rest of the divisions finished this weekend. The most interesting issues was as usual what teams that should make the step up form division 1 to Elitserien for next season.

In the North division 1 Tyresö had a big advantage since the round two results that was canceled due to rain (Link to the news about the disrupted round) was decided not to be counted. The decision was at first that the remaining two rounds should have been played this weekend but Tyresö protested against that since they interpreted the rules to cancel the whole round. This protest was approved by the executive committee of the Swedish Federation as late as 19th of August, so it was back top the results from the first round.

So the whole round in Tantogården was a long journey for deciding what Team of Uppsala 2 and Tyresö that should win the series. But since Uppsala already have a team in the highest division Elitserien they could not take a step up according to the rules and Tyresö quite soon hade the progress to Elitserien in their hand. In the last match between Tyresö and Uppsala however Uppsala won and took the win of the series.

Best individually was Thomas Pölder of Uppsala with 28,0. The serie was played at the new beton course of Tantogården. This was the first competition on the course and the new course record was set to 23 by Niclas Witte of VK 78. The course seems to be quite ace-friendly and the PAR was preliminary calculated to 27,3 making the Tantogården beton to the easiest in Sweden so far.

In the south the winners are Sjöviken IF. Also they played their last round on beton in Stockholm, but on the Akalla course. Akalla is by far the toughest beton course in Sweden and this weekend there was actually quite many results over 36, even on usually good players. Sjöviken ended up on the same points as the runner up BGK Linjen but with far less strokes. But the win of Sjöviken was in practical terms already clear the match before after a win over Tuve.

Sjöviken has a strong team of Jan Åke Persson, Filip Johansson, Mats Olsson, Daniel Källström, Lars Peter Nilsson and Leif Nilsson. It seems now like they will be a strong contender not to be a one year only team in Elitserien like so many others have been the last years.

Failing the task to stick by in the league was Malmö BGK who was playing in Elitserien last year and Gullbergsbro 2. Next year will Granhyddan BGK join with players like Fredrik Persson and Jessica Regnbrandt from this years Swedish national team and Växjö BGK.

The best player this year was clearly Jan Åke Persson who had a fantastic season with his team and individual. Jan Åke Persson started to play again in 2006 and soon became a very important player and person for the team.

Runner up is Björn Andersson in Linjen with a fantastic comeback this year. Notice that this was Björns first beton competition for 21 years.
