“The National Tour started with a playoff and ended with a playoff”, said Paul McBeth #27523 as we walked up to the tee pad of Hole 2 with the gallery just behind us. At that moment, the reality of the 2015 National Tour coming to an end finally hit me. Has it really been six months since The Memorial Championships where Mcbeth faced another North Carolinian in a playoff?
If you haven’t already noticed, the Round 1 scores at the 2015 Hall of Fame Classic presented by MVP Disc Sports this afternoon, specifically in the Open division, were nothing short of absurd, on paper anyway. When the fans following along at home see that 13 different competitors in the Open division finished with scores of 13 under par or better, we can only assume (as disc golf fanatics ourselves) that they are likely asking themselves a simple, but understandable question.
April 1st might be a day of pranks and mischief for some, but for those looking to make a name for themselves in the world of professional-level disc golf, the day has a more significant meaning. Starting at 12:00pm EDT on April 1st, registration for the 2015 Disc Golf Hall Of Fame Classic (HOFC) opens. The HOFC is the final and most important leg of the 2015 PDGA National Tour Elite Series, and series ending awards and bonuses will be awarded.
