The first two rounds of the 2014 Brent Hambrick Memorial Open came to an end earlier this evening after an enduring 12-hour day of disc golf in the hot and humid climate of an Ohio summer. The gusting 25mph winds provided the only occasional relief to the heat, but often brought with it more trouble than it might have been worth. The courses here at the Hoover Dam don’t respond well to bad air-bounces and fluttery putts.
The Brent Hambrick Memorial Open is back on the PDGA National Tour once again and is ready to rock here in Westerville, OH on the infamous courses built on and around the Hoover Reservoir. This event holds a special place in the hearts of the hundreds of people that were directly affected by the loss of Brent Hambrick to Leukemia in 1997. Brent was one of the most respected tournament directors in the world, bringing a new level of professionalism, organization, and attention to detail to the sport.
