BMGA Brighton Open Report

22nd June 2008

Minigolf Tournament Report – BMGA Brighton Open

In his second tournament of the week Richard Gottfried was unable to make it three in a row after wins in the BMGA British Club Championship and Adventure Island/Heart FM Open, when he competed in the BMGA Brighton Open at Peter Pan’s 12-hole Peter Adventure Golf course on Madeira Drive, Brighton on Saturday 21st June.

In a field of 33 players, which included 9 local players, Richard finished in 19th place with a four round total of 115 (+15) after rounds of 27, 34, 28 and 26.

The competition was won for the second year in a row by Brighton’s Jacob Stevenson who held on to a wire-to-wire lead with rounds of 23, 24, 24, 25 for a four round total of 96 (-4).

Richard said of his performance in the BMGA Brighton Open “I was in 11th place after the first round but after my disastrous second round where I took a 6 on the 12th hole I couldn’t seem to make up much ground on the leaders. My problem was hitting too many threes and only managing two Aces, and they came along too late to be of any help.”

Richard has moved up one place in the BMGA Order of Merit and is now currently ranked 15th in Great Britain.

The next tournament on the British Minigolf Association (BMGA) Tour will see Richard and Emily Gottfried heading to Hastings for the BMGA British Championships in mid-July.
