Second First Annual Duncan Doubles Report and Results
"It's deja vu all over again." - Yogi Berra
Sooner Disc Golf brought the rain to Duncan once again for our second First Annual Duncan Doubles Tournament effort. And despite scheduling conflicts (read: OU/Texas weekend, October Friz) that no doubt contributed to low turnout, and the challenging weather conditions, the tournament was a success! Every team bested the rain, mud, and wind to complete the three round format--and Sooner Disc Golf rewarded them for their tenacity, paying out discs and merchandise to every participant. Sooner Disc Golf has also used tournament proceeds to donate a basket to Duncan Lake's second course!
With only 5 teams playing Advanced and 2 teams playing Rec, it was anyone's game! The three round tournament consisted of two rounds of best shot and one round of combined score. Results:
1st: James "BCB" Kuhn and James Bierman
2nd: Mike Lightner and Sam Hazewinkel
3rd: Mikey Hooper and Billy Engel
4th: Marty Dayhoff and Steve "Dig" King
5th: Joshua Smith and Bobby Thomas
1st: Mike McCoy and Sam
2nd: Stan Herman and Larry New
The pouring rain and unsure footing made the formidable Duncan Lake course all the more challenging, as the winning score was a very modest 228 (+12):
Round 1, Best Shot: 53
Round 2, Combined Score: 60 and 66
Round 3, Best Shot: 49
James "BCB" Kuhn hit an ace on Hole #18 during Round 2, smashing chains with a low-line thumber!
I would like to thank everyone who came out for the Second First Annual Duncan Doubles. You made the tournament an incredible success, and more importantly, you made it a lot of fun! With improved scheduling and fortuitous weather, we plan to make Duncan Doubles bigger and better in '12!
