Turba’s commentary on the competition: “All the rounds were windy. The last round the wind was just as strong, but had changed direction, so the start was very rough, but eventually I got the feel of it. As the course itself is simple and short the flags were placed in “mini golf” spots, so the tactic was to hit the middle of the green on each lane and just wait for the putter to get hot. I got more or less played to plan and at the moment I feel good.”
