For the second time, young amateur golfers from eleven European countries met at St. Leon-Rot Golf Club to compete in the Capri-Sonne International Boys and Girls Championships.
Therewith the organizers, the German Golf Association and St. Leon-Rot Golf Club, took a big step towards their goals to make the tournament more International and to create an international platform for german players in their own country. The tournament is now established in the calendar of the European Golf Association.
But also the title sponsor, WILD Werke from Eppelheim near Heidelberg, who committed themselves to support young top golfers, came up to their expectations with attaining only top golf.
A high-class starting field offered a high sporting level throughout three tournament days, as usually seen only at pro tournaments. The target of the German Golf Association “having a higher class by having more competition” was fulfilled in this case.
Not only the fantastic competition, but also the cheerful atmosphere among the social program will remain in the guests' memories.
Many spectators were offered an exciting finish at the finals. The German Golf Association’s national player Allen John from St. Leon-Rot Golf Club came out on top in his home club with 215 strokes in total, in the end he was two strokes in advantage of Finland’s Kalle Samooja and over again two additional strokes in advantage of Norway’s Marius Thorp.
The winning girls were Caroline Masson (Hubbelrath Golf Club, 220), her club companion Denise-Charlotte Becker (Hubbelrath Golf Club, 222) and Nina Holleder (Bad Griesbach Golf Club, 225).
The organizers would like to thank the sponsors and players, their trainers and caretakers and also many spectators, giving this tournament an extraordinary frame and making it a sporting high-class event as well as a joyful event.
