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...

Rebecca Weber took her Second Gold

The success continued today for the Swiss ladies when Rebecca Weber took the individual Gold Medal after a thrilling ending in the finals. Just as back in Tampere the goddess of Luck was involved and on the Swiss side.

Rebecca started of her day by winning easily over the Swede Sandra Bengtsson with 6-1. Then she meet her Team mate Yvonne Klukas in open game with lots of give and take ending 6-4 to Rebecca. In the semifinal she was winning with relative ease over German Nicole Piechotta by 5-1.

On the other half the Austrian star Lisa Gruber started her journey to the final by beating Dutch Ilona de Kok with 4-1. In the next match she won a tight match over German Nicole Gundert-Greifendorf and then yet another Dutch, this time Natasja Klarenbeek in the semifinals.

So in the final the two ladies in red played very well, but also a match of many gives and takes. So in before the last lane on eternit Rebecca was in the lead with 5-4 and only needed to ace for victory. This straight lane with a window all players play using the “klicker” ball, and usually a hit in the doorpost means a secure two, but for Rebecca the ball got a strange spin and found its way to the hole.

A picture tells more than thousand words and we will soon publish a video of this incredible moment.

In the bronze match Nicole Piechotta won the bronze for Germany.

Deja vu? Different players different stages of the play offs. Is there a minigolf player who hasn't had a lucky shot?

unbelieveable...
for sure she had to bring out the best to beat lisa but to fix it in this way is just...(I have not words for that) too lucky,isn't it?

I bet that in 9 out of 10 times it doesn't even pass the post?!

Great reporting Hans, Minigolf Pulitzer 2010 awaits you.

Next time take videos from the putting green end of lane, when possible. And hope that WMF will ban using white balls on white lanes. What a business opportunity, found a company that paints old minigolf balls to new WMF-approved colours!
