Countless happy children’s faces, proud parents and very pleased organizers best describe the finale of the “Lucky33” tournament series that took place at the Golf Course St. Leon-Rot last weekend with pristine weather conditions.


A total of 100 players travelled into the Electoral Palatinate for the finale of the tournament series for youth up to 18 years of age, accompanied by about 100 parents and 22 general agents of the Allianz Insurance company: a platinum-partner of the hosting Golf Club St. Leon-Rot, but simultaneously official partner of this unique event in Germany.  The young players qualified for the finale by playing in 33 tournaments Germany-wide as well as four tournaments at Swiss Golf Clubs.   It was an unforgettable weekend:  upon arrival every player received a gift package, caps, shirts, umbrellas and balls printed with the “Lucky33” logo.  The kids felt like winners, just by participating.  It was no surprise, therefore, that the childrens’ excitement knew no bounds already before the first tee-off.  It only got better at the following Players-Night: a big raffle, delicious dinner and a nightly Shoot-Out making for a grandiose climax.


The task at hand on the second day for the finalists, playing the “Rot” course, was to establish the “Best of the Year” placing.  The boys’ winner was 12 year-old Jamie Griffin from GC Gut Neuenhof, the girls’ winner was 17 year-old Kathrin Wessels from GC Düneburg.  Great prizes awaited the high-performance players in front of the leader board at the winners ceremony that would make even “big” players exult:  not only an invitation to the qualifying tournament of the Allianz German Boys & Girls Open 2011 but also a Ping tour bag and – to trump it all—the two winners Jamie Griffin and Kathrin Wessels, each received a trip to the world renown “Home of Golf” St Andrews Golf Course in    Scotland with a tee-time at the “Old Course”!   The players that placed second and third also received invitations to the qualifying tournament of the German Boys & Girls Open 2011.   The teams then judged and chose the best Allianz general agents.  The winner here was agent Andreas Lehman from the Golf Club Dresden Ullersdorf.


Not only winner Jamie Griffin was overwhelmed by the generous, premium prizes, but also her mother:   “a big thank you to the Allianz and the Golf Club St Leon-Rot.  Jamie already discovered her passion and drive for the game by participating in the Allianz Camp during the German Boys and Girls Open in June of this year.  We still can’t believe that Jamie has now won the “Lucky33” Finale 2010!”


The organizers from Golf Club St. Leon-Rot were more than satisfied by the results:  “Lucky33” is already in its second sensationally successful season, the development of which we too can only marvel at.  After 6 club tournaments during the pilot year 2009, we were able to organize tournaments on 37 different courses in Germany and Switzerland in 2010, welcoming over 1000 youth.  This demonstrates that the idea of having a net-youth tournament series for golfers up to 18 years of age was exactly right. ““Lucky33” has already become an esteemed element in family and athletics that reaches beyond mere club borders,” says St. Leon-Rot CEO Eicko Schulz-Hanßen happily and adds, “a big thank you goes to our platinum partner Allianz and especially the general agents.  Due to their involvement and dedication this overwhelmingly positive reception would not have been possible.  The Golf Club St. Leon-Rot, together with Allianz – and possibly two further partners that are still to be determined— envision expanding “Lucky33” even more next year.  We plan on organizing more than 99 tournaments nationwide next year.  We would also like to expand “Lucky33” to play in additional European countries.”
