The grid was still very wet and soft from all the rain we got earlier during the week. The weather turned out to be nice and sunny with a small cross wind. It was an excellent competition with a full range to warm up next to the competition grid, all the distances were called immediately back to the tee box and it was a fair and fun format to hit. Our grand stand was almost full of spectators and we enjoyed complimentary refreshments during the rounds. Easily the best competition in long drive this year. Our competition and the winner got mentioned during the live coverage of the US Open in the local tv, they were wondering if Dustin Johnson would hit it longer than our winner. (They got it wrong LOL) Unfortunately we had to cancel the Finland vs Sweden match again due to lack of interest.
