Presidential Cup VI Recap - Feb 16th, 2021

The Presidential Cup VI Recap

The Presidential Cup VI sponsored by Q102 and Dynamic Discs was held this past Saturday. In my near 30 years of play, I can’t recall playing a competition round in those extreme low temperatures. Starting out in single digits with “feels like” temperatures below zero was pretty brutal. Despite that craziness, 82 players braved the elements Saturday which I am sure will be remembered forever by all who played. We had several other tournament sponsors that helped with this one including Intuitive Body Works (Ashley Wright), Branson Trails (Teddy & Liz), The Cycle Bar (Jeromy & Megan), and Greazy Dyes (Chase Marcus). Thank you all so much for the support

It seemed all players had there own ideas on how to stay warm with every type of “stay warm” contraption available being used. I wanted to give a shout out to David Christie & Adam West for letting Scott Kisling come grab fire barrels and wooden crates to burn. These fire barrels were a hit, despite a few ruined pair of gloves and a jacket from what I heard. The bitter temperatures were accompanied by some wind that definitely cut through you. I’m glad I was a part of this experience, but I am ok with a one and done!

Scott Kisling did a remarkable job prepping for this tournament. Along with the fire barrels, he prepped the tee boxes the night before using a torch to melt any snow and ice and then put salt on all of them. I never slipped on a tee box. Well done Scott. He also marked OB’s real well with string paint and flags for visibility. A spot on the fence row was missed initially but painted in between rounds. The wooded holes look incredible with very few limbs lying around. There is no telling how many hours were out into all that was done. Great Job on all the course updates and preparation Scott. We thank you for a great place to play.

I want to thank Brian Kisling for his help in the morning prep as well. Also for his pot of chile. Brad Hilton and my mom also brought chile for lunch. This was a perfect answer for the cold.
A big shout out to Team Monkey for helping to make sure everything ran smooth and made sure we were out in a timely fashion. You all are the best and much appreciated.

A note from Scott Kisling:

“We would also like to thank the representative's from the Spfd Convention & Visitors Bureau and Spfd Sports Commission for coming to view and express their interest in the tournament. As well as KOLR 10 featuring the event in their news program. I want to thank everyone that signed up, played or not, for supporting Swing Right as we continue to improve our course for the disc golf community.” This is very exciting to have some support from the city and a local news station. Again, thanks for the hard work on the course as well as the promotion of course, tournament, and disc golf in general!!


The official results can be found here on the PDGA’s website:

https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/49072

Winners included the following:
Juniors - Wyatt Sorrel our only brave Junior

Rec Women - Julie Crouch who took a disc to the face and still came back and played the second round. Definitely winning the “Toughest Player Award”

Rec Men - 125 - Jon Randle edging out Christopher Pearson by two in a small comeback

Intermediate Men - 121 - Michael Cory by two who held off a young Drake Ford who put in a good charge in the second round

AM50 - 125 - Ray Presnell by 2 over Mike McBee who over came a 3 stroke deficit after round 1

Advanced - 117 - Sam Knopf by 2 breaking the 1st round tie with Paul Dingman

Open Women - 124 - Rebekah Kersey shooting well above her rating and wining handily

Open Men - 105 - Andrew Presnell shooting the hot rounds on a freezing day and winning by 5 over Loren Lewis

Hats off to all the winners and a big congratulations to all of you. This is an impressive win because of the elements. I hope to see you at the Ice Bowl in Lebanon on the 27th. Until then keep warm!!

9th Annual Marshall Open Players Meeting - Oct 22nd, 2020

9th Annual Marshall Open
Players’ Meeting

In Memory of Jerry Scott

The Marshall Open this year is being played in Memory of Jerry Scott, who was taken from us earlier this year by the COVID-19 pandemic. Anyone who ever met Jerry would almost immediately know three things about him – he loved God and his church, he loved his family, and he loved disc golf.

Jerry was the pastor of Olivet Free Will Baptist Church for the last 20 years and assistant pastor for 17 years prior, only recently retiring. He was constantly helping anyone in need, even if not from his church, with things like food, shelter, or transportation. He was even one of the most loyal members of the jail ministry team that would visit the county jail on Sundays.

As much as Jerry is missed in the community, the Marshall disc golf scene would be totally different without his influence. He was one of the designers/builders of the original course. He was the first to speak to the Park Director, and led the presentation to the Park Board. Without his continual nudging, the course may never have existed. Not only was he one of the handful of players to build the first course, he also spent countless hours over the years doing maintenance work.

Jerry loved the sport, playing as often as possible, even if he didn’t expect to win. He attended tournaments as far away as the Amateur World Championships in Emporia, Kansas and the Tim Selinske U. S. Masters Championships in Charlotte, North Carolina. He would never miss the Marshall Open until failing health last year forced him to just watch. Another favorite was to play in the Show Me State Games where he always medaled in his age bracket.

In short, Jerry was an inspiration to the community in all ways. He will be sorely missed.

Welcome to the Ninth Annual Marshall Open! As always, we’d like to start off by thanking our sponsors.

Disc Mania presents: The Dragon Ridge Open Recap - Oct 1st, 2020

This past Saturday a maxed out field of 90 players took part in the 3rd consecutive Dragon Ridge tournament in Camdenton Missouri. It has been a treat partnering with Disc Mania for all three of these years. We appreciate and thank Disc Mania for the custom discs that were stamped up this year. I also want to make sure we thank Larry Bennett and the Camdenton Parks and Rec as for allowing us to try and slay the Dragon again this year and for funding this event. Another huge thank you that needs to be given is to both Darren Rucker and Mike Abbott for weed eating for nearly 4 hours a few days before the tournament. This made the course play much better. Thank you to all of you!

The day started off beautiful allowing players to warm up any way they chose. Blue skies and a cool start. Kevin Burns with local radio station 93.5 Rocks the Lake was on site and did an informative interview. This was a very cool added feature. Unfortunately, the radio jinks happened as Kevin had to say this on air, “it looks like you’ll have good weather this year”... as you may have heard the weather was far from good! We appreciate the shout out any way, but whatever you do, don’t cover the weather any more!

The rain moved in half way through the round, making the Dragon even tougher. This course is physically and mentally challenging without any weather. Add rain, and man is it tough! The rain continued through the rest of the 1st round. The 3 hour and 45 minute first round was grueling. The brutal conditions only allowed 8 players in any divisions to finish under par.

The second round was started in the rain. Unfortunately play had to be suspended due to inclement weather as lightening set in. Knowing that the course took over 3 and a half hours to play, and the rules stating that 30 minutes after the last lightening strike after suspended play must be allowed before a restart, we knew there was a chance we wouldn’t get the last round in. 4:20 was the latest we could start and get people in before dark. Thankfully this happened! Everyone was finished before night fall.

The competition was tough and the winning margins were almost all super close! Congrats to all winners and players that cashed. It’s worth noting again, that there were only 8 players that finished under par.

1st place in Open, in a great come back win, was Andrew Presnell holding off both Jake Hebenheimer and Adam Morrison by only one stroke. Andrew shot an impressive -9 for the tournament.

Open women winner Millie Cowgill has only played one other tournament. The Farewell to Jonathan Chambless tournament was a non sanctioned event a few weeks back at Hanna Hills. She was able to take her 1st PDGA win with only a one stroke lead over Brandy Monnahan (+17).

Pro Masters had a great battle. Roger Reyes of St. Louis and I battled to the end. I was able to shoot -1 to snag a small two stroke margin win.

Advanced Men had the tightest battle in the field having to go into a play off to decide the winner. Jon Corristin bested Jon Musick in the play off. Both players shot +5.

Dan Newlin in Am Masters took a commanding lead with his +9 winning by 4 over Scott Reek.

Women’s Am Masters was taken by Mary Abbott by the largest lead in all the divisions. Her +26 was 19 strokes better than second place.

Tom Butler recorded his 50th PDGA win. He was able to thwart off local Brad “the Bud Man” Hilton by 5. Tom shot +11.

The intermediate division was taken down by Dylan Gilltrap’s +5. Only one stroke separated him from both Paul Baker and Brad Walkenhorst.

Ben Neufeld won the Recreational division shooting a +10.

A huge shout out to players that hit aces as well:
Rick Waggoner hit a 400’ blind hole 2 Ace.
Aaron Reinhardt also had a blind ace on the 270’ hole 1.

Thank all of you for coming to this super fun tournament. We hope to see you all again next year as well!
