Kansas City Wide Open

Kansas City Wide Open

Another National Tour Elite Series tournament concluded today as the last putt hit the chains at the Kansas City Wide Open presented by GripEQ. The final round was played at Swope Park DGC on the Missouri side of Kansas City. Swope Park itself is a true treasure of the Midwest. Amazing disc golf course, check. Zoo, check. Beautiful ball golf course, check. Outdoor concert venue, check. The park has it all, and today a gallery of 400+ gathered to watch some of the best disc golfers in the world take on the course in pristine condition.

The 2013 Kansas City Wide Open presented by Grip EQ kicked off today at the beautiful and infamous Waterworks Park disc golf course in Kansas City, MO.  The holes at Waterworks DGC are a unique blend of carved and manicured fairways, difficult elevation changes, awe inspiring views of the Kansas City skyline, and pin positions that can shake even the best of the best.

We had an exciting day here at the 30th Annual Kansas City Wide Open, round three of the event got underway early this morning at the 6,907 foot, par 58 Rosedale Disc Golf Course. Our leader in Men’s Open, Will Schusterick, and second place Paul McBeth, were trading shots back and forth all round. On the last hole, Mcbeth tied it up to go into round three.

The 30th Kansas City Wide Open, teed off this morning under overcast skies and with unusually cool temperatures for this time of year in the Midwest.

Hosted by the inveterate Kansas City Flying Disc Club, this edition features an unprecedented five different and unique courses being played in the three day competition for the first time ever, making it arguably the most challenging test of mettle on the 2012 PDGA National Tour Elite Series, presented by Vibram Disc Golf.
