WMF World Championships 2019
The World Championships are held every two years and is the very competition that the New Zealand Mini Golf team cut their international putting teeth back in 2015.
The competition is tough, usually played on surfaces that we don't see the likes of in Australasia - fibreglass, concrete, so the opportunities to practice are limited. But that doesn't stop our brave Kiwis from rising to the cahllenge.
This year's championships are being hosted by mini golf newcomers China, in the picturesque water town of Zouzhuang, where players from all over the world will come to compete at a purpose-built mini golf facility.
2019 is also the year of greater televised coverage - you can find replays for some of the competition on the Olympic Channel Website
The New Zealand Contingent
Three competitors put their names up to represent New Zealand in Zouzhuang this year and are no strangers to international competition: Cameron Couper, Kris Vine and Tamara Lear-Vine.
