Great Britain’s top Junior Minigolfer Rocky Bullin, from St Leonards on Sea ranked 62nd of 74 players in the Minigolf Youth European Championships (YEC) in Waldshut, Germany on the 5th to 8th August 2008. Earning his second Great Britain international cap Rocky competed against players from 14 countries over eight rounds of Minigolf, playing a total of 144 holes.

Most World Minigolfsport Federation (WMF) competitions are played on courses that are uncommon in the UK and the YEC was played on Concrete/Beton and Miniaturegolf/Eternit playing surfaces. Following some intensive practice prior to the tournament, Rocky set a new British Course Record of 28(-8) in his first round on the Concrete/Beton playing surface.

His 144-hole, eight round total was 238(-50), an average of 29.75 per round (1.65 shots per hole). In total Rocky scored 66 holes-in-one, 66 twos, nine threes, two fours and only one five. His second round on the Miniaturegolf/Eternit playing surface saw him score 12 holes-in-one for a seven-under par score of 29.

Four-time British Junior Champion Rocky Bullin, 14, travelled to Waldshut with his parents Ruth and Bill, who also coached him during the tournament, along with German Coach and former BMGA British Open winner Karsten Hein. Ruth is a WMF qualified Minigolf coach, gaining her certificate in Austria in March 2009.

Following the tournament Ruth Bullin said “We are very pleased with Rocky's performance and so grateful to Karsten for all his hard work and professionalism in coaching Rocky.”

The tournament was won by Gerrit Britz of Germany, with Robin Hettrich (GER) second and Sweden’s Filiph Svensson third.

Rocky regularly plays in tournaments on the British Minigolf Association (BMGA) Tour and is currently ranked 15th in the BMGA Order of Merit. He will next be competing in the BMGA British Open in Margate, Kent in September.
