Another awesome weekend of disc golf is in the books. Our friends in NY/NJ, the Skylands area had their A Tier, Animalfest and John Biscoe Hawk Hollow Open in VA attracted a slew of regional pros. Word on the street is that they both were great successes!
MrDiscGolf traveled to the lovely Hanover, PA and hosted the Codorus Autumn Open. Golfers from Utah, Wisconsin, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, New Jersey and Pennsylvania comprised the 93 enthusiasts in attendance. Pro Men was decided by a playoff with Phil Denhart taking the win over Linc Morgan. Pro Ladies was won by Alanna Poole of Indiana, PA while the Am ladies was captured by Jenn Cable. Advanced men was championed by Wayman Peet and the Intermediate Mens winner also decided by a playoff was Josh Mertz over Matt Evans. Pro Masters was taken down by Dan Becker and Am Masters Jeff Ross, and Am Grandmasters by Joey Desimone. Lastly, Mark Fox prevailed in the recreational division.
Three young men who could have comprised the junior division all played in the rec division and were each rewarded with an additional prize disc along with their player pack! And as always, all am ladies divisions were paid out!
A MrDiscGolf ritual raffle was stacked! Donations from the Whispering Falls DGC provided two prizes, an entry into the Hyzerflip Open on Nov 5, a pair of Keens, and an Innova Skillshot were donated by Mike Solt. Congrats to the Keen’s winner, Jay Gobrecht; the basket winner, Anthony Caito; and the tournament entry, Ken Dunbar!
The participants were not only challenged by a 2 round of 20-hole layout but the immense winds that Mother Nature provided. Many golfers commented that they had their discs fly like they’ve never seen before. Golfers joked that they were unprepared for wind. After 9 hours of being on the course, golfers departed near dusk and the course, after humbly taming many a golfer, prepared for a two week nap, until their North vs. South competition on the 29th of October.
On Sunday, MrDiscGolf trekked to Kennedy Park in Forest City, PA to take part in their Dead Leave Doubles. Sixteen teams came out and competed on the course with 7 temporary holes and after two rounds, Skip and Jay Hummel of Hughesville championed the Pro division. Matt Evans and Justin Seersma prevailed in the advanced division while Devin Machalick & Greg Martens took down the Intermediate division.
The greatest part of the event was that over $300 was raised so they can now purchase a 12th basket!!
