Nick Iron was in the fifth place after four stages in the European FootGolf Trophy Tour (EFTT). He was the best in Holland, winning the three-day long competition. Beside the individual game, FootGolf Holland won the Amsterdam Trophy against Team Rest of the World.
Nick Iron (UK) won the three-day tournament by three shots in Holland with score -25. “It was tough to play over three days for sure. You have to keep concentration on high level, rest your leg muscles and make sure you stretch before the game. On the first day I had a good flight with players who all pulled each other along and was probably the best scoring flights of day one. On day two I was in top flight so all players were very good. I was disappointed with my performance as I was five under after the front nine and only managed one under on that back nine which I felt wasn't good enough. But my score on this day was -6 and best score was -7 so I was still tied for the lead going into the final day. Anyone from the final two flights could have won the competition. I remained calm and made sure I was concentrating. I'm so happy to win one of the best competitions.” summarized the winner.
He said, the course in Holland was very technical and it was punished when you did not put the ball in the correct place. “Some holes were short but technically difficult, while some holes were very long. The course was a perfect mix.”
He is so ambitious after winning in Holland. “I would like to become the gold medalist at the end of the EFTT. My next three events I attend are Italy Ireland and UK.”
The match between FootGolf Holland and a team of the rest of the world, called the Amsterdam Trophy was won by Holland. After the defeat of last year, they got revenge by the 5:4 win.
