In my constant immersion in this sport, I like to know and understand the history of however many influential people there have been. That being said, could someone educate me, or point me toward a link, that gives information about Hambrick?
Every search I do just gives me info about the memorial open.

brent was a mover/shaker in the sport in the midwest during the 80's (and i believe possibly the late 70's and early 90's).
someone very much known for promoting the sport and helping it grow. i believe he died of cancer in the early 90's.

I played quite a few rounds with Brent.
Met him in 1988 at Brandywine(DE). My first impression of him wasn't all that positive as I returned a disc to him that he had left on the course and he didn't seem at all appreciative.
However as my game improved and I started shooting the same scores as him I found myself in his group more frequently and found him to be very friendly and a great guy to play with and hang out with.
He had battled Hogkins for a while and then it went into remission for about 8-9 years. Then all of all sudden symptoms returned and he posted basicly a farewell letter in Disc Golf World News informing his disc golf family of his impending fate. He died of cancer about 5-6 months later.
Good golfer, fun guy and one of the pioneers of disc golf touring.
