Players Cup

Players Cup

The 2011 PDGA rookies of the year once again prove themselves to be among the best in the sport.

Ricky Wysocki took advantage of a couple early mistakes by Cale Leiviska to win the first two holes. Leiviska birdied hole 4 to pull within one but Wysocki kept the pressure on with birdies on holes 5 and 7 to increase the lead to three.

Today marks the first day the ladies side will compete in the World Match Play Championships. Eight ladies are set to compete with Valarie Jenkins, Catrina Allen, Paige Pierce, Des Reading, Liz Lopez, Brittany Blair, Danielle Vargas and Lara Coffey vying for the first ladies side championships.

The Players Cup started off with a bang as the Daniel Loomis (15) defeated Bradley Williams (2). Dan Loomis, a 973 rated journeyman discer from Kansas took down Austin's own 1032 rated Bradley Williams. Loomis hit several 50-70 foot putts to put the pressure on and a little bad luck and awkward lies managed to thwart Williams' attempts to get back in to the lead. Loomis wins 1 & 0.

The Player's Cup Goes Weird!

In the midst of NCAA March Madness, Vibram Disc Golf is proud to present the 2nd annual Player’s Cup match play event. From October 21st to 23rd. 64 of the world’s best disc golfers will converge on Austin, Texas and compete in a six round, match play championship.

This is the Player’s Cup, The World Match Play Championship. Every shot counts.

The Final Four is set and youth is served.

Bradley Williams played flawless golf, winning six of the first nine holes over Dave Feldberg, the world's #2 ranked disc golfer. After 13 holes, it was all over and Bradley Williams was the first player to enter the Final Four.

Will Schusterick withstood a little bad luck and demonstrated that the USDGC was no fluke. He beat Ken Climo, disc golf's most celebrated champion, and may have showed the Champ that the youth revolution is upon us. 14 holes into the match, it was all over.

Will Schusterick and Bradley Williams will face off in the Final Four.

The Friday morning sun broke through the trees onto a beautiful and chilly morning. The temperature would heat up, and the play would keep pace. On this first day, our field of 64 players would be reduced to 16. The Sweet 16, to steal a phrase.

DGA has teamed up with Vibram Disc Golf and Sun King Disc Sports in sponsoring this year's Players Cup in Ocala, FL.
