Minigolf Report – BMGA English Open
Luton Minigolfers Richard & Emily Gottfried were in action at the 13th Annual BMGA English Open Minigolf Championships which took place at the 18-hole Adventure Golf course at Wroxham Barns, Norfolk on Sunday 5th June.
A 28-player field contested the title and Richard scored a three-round, 54-hole total of 103(-5) which included scores of 31(-5), 33(-3) and 39(+3), to earn 7th place.
Emily finished in a respectable 19th place, with rounds of 41(+5), 37(+1) and 39(+3).
The tournament was won by Oxford’s Michael Smith with a score of 90(-18).
Richard said “The English Open was a great event and I’m pleased with seventh place. I hit an all-time new personal best in my first round and I had 13 Aces overall. It was also great to do well on the round-killer twelfth hole which has been a problem for me in the past. A weekend with two top ten finishes is a great result.”
