Discraft

The 22nd Annual Discraft Michigan State Championships were held last weekend in Mason County, MI and spotlighted the best disc golf in the state with 440 competitors on seven courses, over two days. The tournament is the world’s largest B Tier event for the fifth consecutive year and breaks the record attendance from last year’s 397. The event has been held in Mason County and run by Tournament Director Jeff Schwass for the past 18 years.

When the third and final round got underway at the 2013 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship presented by Discraft in Milford, Michigan, there were several competitors within reach of the first place trophy and the title of National Champion.  The morning began with eight players within 5 strokes of the lead, and on a course as difficult as the Toboggan, that lead could shrink in a matter of one or two holes.  This tournament had come down to the wire so many times in the 11-year history of the event; many wondered if we would see another tight race to the finish.  Minnesota’s

As day two of the 2013 United States Disc Golf Championships presented by Discraft kicked off today, the Toboggan course was at its most vulnerable state.  From the early tee times throughout the day, the sun was shining and the wind was down; perfect conditions for scoring in the second round of this PDGA Major event.  Just a week after Ricky Wysocki set the new overall course record at an astounding 50, the top rated amateurs, representing 24 states and 3 countries, have their sights set on the next hot round.  Sometimes easier said than done, however, as the r

Today was Day 1 at the 2013 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship presented by Discraft, and you could cut the tension with a knife.  A very difficult task was in front of the 143 player field.  For some, it would be their first time competing in an event of this size, while for others, it is the last step before setting off on their professional disc golf campaign.  The Toboggan course, located in beautiful Kensington Metropark in Milford, MI is truly one of the game’s most difficult courses.  Kensington Park is huge, nearly 5000 acres, and the holes at the Toboggan are just as big.  The course has a total length of just less than 9000 feet, and there is plenty of elevation change.

This weekend, only a few days after the pros were tested at the Discraft Great Lakes Open, the top-rated amateurs in the country will congregate in Milford Michigan for the 2013 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championships presented by Discraft. 144 players were invited to this year’s PDGA major event, each earning their spot at one of the qualifying tournaments leading up to the Championship.

The Discraft Great Lakes Open wrapped up today on the toboggan course in Milford, MI marking the end of the 5th event in the 2013 National Tour Elite Series. Ricky Wysocki won his 3rd NT event of the year and Sarah Hokom won her second after a 3 day battle against Paige Pierce. With those wins, they both have a nice lead in the points series with only 3 events to go.

Another great day in Arizona as day two of The Memorial Championship started off with a bang. I had the pleasure of live tweeting both the womens and mens lead cards and the story of the day (and the tournament) has to be Paige Pierce.  She is now in the lead by 10 strokes after a stellar 1036 rated round on Wednesday and a 1015 rated round today.
