Obituary Gerhard Snaga

We have received with great sadness the news about passing away of Gerhard Snaga, who died last week at the age of 82. Gerhard was 1980-1988 Sport Director of IBGV, predecessor of WMF, and he has also been nominated as honorary member of WMF. Already in the early 1980’s he was a key person when two international minigolf federations (concrete and miniaturegolf organizations) unified to one federation which today is called World Minigolf Sport Federation.

Gerhard had also received the nomination as honorary President of German Minigolfsport Federation (DMV). For international minigolfers a very important achievement among others was being one of the driving forces behind the minigolf centre in Bad Münder in his home region. From 2002 until 2004 he was head of the organization of the very successful series of International Championships in Bad Münder.

Our thoughts are with Gerhard’s family and especially with his wife Herma, who always accompanied Gerhard to the international events, where the congenial couple were always very welcome guests.

The Essex County Open was held on June 30th at the Essex Golf Center in Roseland, NJ. It was the first running of this tournament and twelve competitors played three rounds in 90 (F) degree (32 C) heat to crown the first winner. The course was not an easy one as mid-to-high 40s were the best most players could muster on that summer day. Justin Seymour, a USPMGA pro from Connecticut, would be the only competitor who kept all 3 rounds in the 40s and was rewarded with taking the top spot in the tournament and $200. He’d accomplish this feat through a string of deuce on the back nine of the course in the third round, some of the hardest holes on what Justin called a “fun, tough course.” Anna Wallace, Seymour’s girlfriend and also from Connecticut would post the best score of the day, a 42....

Although many miniature golf tournaments have separate women’s prize divisions, one of the best parts of the sport is that the players play mixed for the overall top prizes. Despite this level of fairness, we continue to see that in minigolf tournaments, including this year’s World Adventure Golf Masters (WAGM) the overall number of female participants is still much lower than the males. One of the unique situations this year was with Team USA, who for the first year since their debut in the WAGM fielded two women on the team, Vanette Block and Paula Gay. Paula was a returning player who had taken gold in the Senior Women division in 2017. This title would be passed to Vanette who snagged the gold this year. The uniqueness was not in the number of competitors – it was in who was coaching Team USA – 23 year-old Olivia...
