Jared Hilton Memorial Recap - Jun 18th, 2022

Jared Hilton Memorial Recap

There were 135 players this year that came to Lebanon, Missouri for the 12th Annual Jared Hilton Memorial. The courses looked amazing being mowed and groomed by John Shelton’s park maintenance crew and Brad Hilton. Brad, Rollin Clamme, and Brandy Monnahan all worked hard getting the course tournament ready with OB’s marked, signs, water, and canopies put up. A big shout out to all who made everything look great!

There were two pools with nearly a perfect split in numbers. The A pool started out on the Jared Hilton course side of Atchley Park with the B pool starting on the Winfrey course across the street. The weather was near perfect with the first round starting at 9:00. Nearly all groups were done around noon. Hamburgers, hotdogs, and chips were served courtesy of Chris Ryan owner of R & R Heating and Air who flipped the bill, and Pamela Collins for doing the grilling and set up done by Assistant TD by Lindsey Cass. Thank you all so much as it was delicious. The 2nd round was a brutal reminder that we were definitely in summer. The temperatures and humidity soared. Thankfully there was a breeze that was definitely welcomed.

After the round players gathered for the always Amazing JHM Raffle that is largely sponsored by Brad Hilton. Other players also donated items along with The Lebanon Parks & Rec helping to put in a Monkey Trap in for the grand prize. Lots of winners and $1,100 was raised and will be used to fund another course as Brad and I will team with EDGE to find a school wanting/needing a course on their campus! Thank you everyone for supporting the Jared Hilton Memorial as we continue to keep Jared’s memory alive.

Reminder: North Ark Open is postponed until further notice. - May 5th, 2022

As most of you know the North Ark Open was postponed about a month ago due to an accidental double booking. The North Ark College graduation will be happening the same day and because of parking issues they elected to have us change our date. The date has not been determined, but when it has been established we will post it here and on the Disc Golf Monkey FB pages as well as my personal FB page. Sorry for the inconvenience, and believe me I understand the frustration and let down.

Hanna Hills Recap - May 2nd, 2022

The 4th Annual Hanna Hills Open Recap (Try 2)

As many of you know Hanna Hills is a beautiful and challenging course near Fort Leonard Wood in the town of Laquey, MO. The Par 65 course is filled with scenic beauty that displays the gorgeous Ozark Mountain terrain. Trees, rocks, elevation, ponds, short holes, long holes, and so much more make up this paradise. As a bonus to the scenery the owners, Vic and Diana, are simply awesome. You could not have any better hosts! Along with all the above, there are also animals galore: goats, ducks, peacocks, dogs, cats, and an endless amount of birds to be seen if your lucky. Definitely one of my favorite places to be, and it is a privilege to be able to showcase Hanna on my tour.

I want to take a second to thank Vic & Diana for opening their land for us to play this tournament. A big shout out to Jeff Ford owner of Patriots Gold & Silver who was our title sponsor. To parker Asay for coming up with another great logo for discs and shirts, thank you and as always your art skills are over the top! A big thanks to Dynamic Discs for making Parker’s art come to life on the great looking discs and shirts. I also want to thank Andres Flores being the non playing assistant TD (PDGA’s new requirement in 2022 for B tiers and above) who helped with course set up and tear down as well. To Kevin Carder for helping with all of the technology side of the tournament. You are appreciated more than you know! To Michael Bentele for being the best running man (being asked to be all over) to make things run as smooth as possible. I would also like to thank my wife and kiddo for making the trip to help serve food and show their support.

This year Eighty eight players filled up the 9 division field. The day started cool with a crisp bite in the air that made most wear an extra layer of clothing to keep the chill off. Most of the first round was cool, but thankfully the sun was out and warmed things up just enough to make things near perfect for disc golf at Hanna. Mother Nature opened up some added water on holes 1, 2, and 3 that are often water free. Although the water made it even more beautiful, the filled and over flowing ponds made Hanna even tougher.

In between rounds the players were fed a pulled pork sandwich meal that was catered by Red Ox Barbecue. Carl Jackson, the owner, can be found at Axes and O’s in Marshfield, MO Wednesday through Saturday. If you are in the area give Red Ox Barbecue a try!

At the end of the round there was a throw off for the Ace Pot followed by a raffle. Corey Chaney had the winning ticket for the grand prize of
A Spider Trap, but I believe he said someone else was the actual winner. Whoever won it, I hope it helps you lower your scores with the putting practice you will now get in on your new basket!

There were definitely some issues that were mentioned and we have a plan to correct the shortcomings. The PDGA’s strong suggestion for going paperless bit is this time and therefore we will have printed resources taped to the check in table from now on. We will also have Alternate places to look for information about the event despite the multiple face book pages and my web site incase an issue arises as it did this time. Remember that if you ever have any questions or concerns you may call, text, or instant message. It is advised you do this well before the event. We appreciate constructive criticism as we always try to do our best to provide fun, competitive, and smooth running events on our tour.

Recreational Men Division (13 players):
The first and second place finishers distanced them selves from the field as both players kept their scores in single digits. Brian Mason was only one off Trenton Dean’s 65. Trent held off Brian in the second round by two and gave him the win shooting a final score of +6.

The Intermediate division was our largest field with 22 competitors. Josh Hickman demolished the field shooting a -5. Is a “Move Up” in order. With that convincing win I would say there is a good argument for it! Rounding out the top four were Samuel Crump and Ryan Burns finishing tied for 2nd at +2. In 4th just one stroke back (+3) was Brendon Rost.

The MA 50+ had five players competing. John Parsons of Marshall, MO was able to take down 1st by only a stroke over our Title sponsor provider Jeff Ford.

Julie Crouch was the only FA 40+ player. She was able to better her score by one stroke in the second round. We need to find you some competition lady!

There were 7 in the Am 40+ division. Aaron Ulrich made a rare showing and took down a big win shooting a 138 holding off Todd Sander who shot 142 and Jeremy Surratt who finished at 144.

In the Advanced division there were 10 players. Alec Knopf who is on a great run took down the division with a strong -6! Chris Pilarski was second with a -2 score which narrowly held off Barak Barton and Garrett Bacon who tied for 3rd shooting -1.

The MP 50+ division had 6 players. It was quite a battle with there being a 3 way tie with only 6 holes left. Despite great playing by Mitch McClelland, Corey Riley, and Ryan Kanovich, I was able to get my first win in a play off on hole 1 with Ryan. Incredible group of guys and a tough field!

There were 5 Open Women which was definitely awesome to see. It isn’t often that we see a full card of ladies competing at that level around here. Katie Belty, who has been on the road quite a bit lately, said she was on her way to Colorado after this event. She dominated the competition shooting a strong +7 total. Katie came out with a 69 in round one. This gave her a 2 stroke lead over Alexis Kerman, 8 strokes over Lauren Butler & Fresa Jacob’s, and 11 over Millie Cowgill. Katie cruised to an easy win, but the real battle was for 2nd. Lauren, Millie, and Fresa all came back strong shooting 70, 69 and 73. The ladies finished in that order with Alexis having a really tough round and finishing 5th.

The Open division had a great showing with 19 players. Alex Berg started off hot shooting a opening round 57. He then got hotter in the second round shooting a 55 with a final score of -18. Tyler Frank and Zackeriath came back strong in the second round shooting 13 down to tie for 2nd. Taylor Thomas and Cameron Ivey tied for 4th shooting -10

The official scores can be seen here

To all that cashed congratulations. Thank you all for coming and look forward to seeing you at Runnin’ with Squatch 2 at Branson Trails.

Lucky 13 Recap - Mar 12th, 2022

14th Annual Lucky 13 Recap

The 14th Annual Lucky 13 presented by Elephant & Castle lived up to its reputation by being a cold one. Although the meteorologists missed the snow and ice accumulation, they were right on the temps. The morning started out at 12 degrees when I left the house, and start time was near 20. It was definitely uncomfortable and getting warm was near impossible with the 10-12 mph winds. The 2nd round seemed to be more bearable even though the winds picked up some. The sun shining down did help.

There were 91 players that competed in 9 divisions. Nearly 20 players withdrew throughout the week. Most scared off by the local doom & gloom forecast that was a definite Bogey. I think all in attendance would agree that the conditions were much better than they anticipated. The course was set up for 20 holes as it has been for the last few year. I definitely want to thank all those who brought baskets. For fear of missing someone I won’t list, but you know who you are and your efforts are appreciated by all! Thank you.

Lunch was provided by Little Caesar’s Pizza. We are fortunate to have General Manager Zach Pirwitz continue to make this happen each year. Zach also played this year and ended up cashing in his division. Thanks a bunch buddy!

Our title sponsor Elephant & Castle has been doing the title sponsorship for several years now! Sadly Doug Bowen the owner of E&C had to withdraw because of a knee injury. I’m Confident he will be back soon. I speak for all who competed when I say thank you for your financial support, it is greatly appreciated. We also had a new sponsor this year that was given to us by Brett Stofer’s mom. The Permit Shop was a Hole Sponsor. This year when signing up you will now see different ways to help. We thank anyone who sponsors or gives us leads on possible sponsors!

It was awesome having 6 of my 7 team players at this event. It’s been a while since we have had that many at one event. To Kyle, Kevin, Michael, Paul, Dasun and Jake, you are all incredible. Thanks for making everything run so smooth at all our events .

Division Recaps:

Rec Women
Madison Feeback was the only lady in the Women’s Rec division. She shot 169. Thanks for braving the cold and playing!

Rec Men
There were 24 players in the Men’s Rec division. Garret Steelman jumped out on top shooting a 60 that was at least 2 strokes better the rest of the field. His 61 second round, totaling 121 was good enough to hold off a strong charge shooting 60 by Dylan Kramer (124 total) and Joshua Klesner’s 125.

Int Men
18 players competed in the Intermediate division. It was George Flagg, Brett Stofer, and Michael Cory all separated by one at 55, 56, & 57. George held on to take home the 1st place trophy with a -8 total. Matt Williams slid in to the 3 way tie for 2nd shooting a hot 56. Justin Hare and Brett Stofer also finished -3 total to round out the 3 way tie for 2nd.

Am Masters 60+
There were 3 in the MA60+ division. It was definitely the “Bud Man” Brad Hilton’s Show this event. Brad put the thumping on Roger Reid and Jon Parsons shooting 116. I have no doubt that both Roger and Jon will come back strong at the Disc’n for Cheetah’s tournament.

Women’s Am40+
Julie Crouch was the only lady playing in the FA40+. She shot a 151. Appreciate you coming out as well.

Men’s Am40+
There were 6 players in the MA40+ division. Only the top two shot in the fifties. Ray Preznell’s 55 and 57 round was good enough to hold off Darrin Dodson’ 57 and 58. Derred Scheperle finished 3rd taking the last cash spot.

Men’s Adv
The Advanced field scores were solid. So much so that the leading score of the day came from the 16 strong field. Both Billy Rae and Josh Owens came out hot with a pair of 52’s. Billy Rae absolutely smashed the 2nd round shooting the hot round 48 (1029 rated) to take the big “W”. The true battle was for second as Seth Lindeman, Noah Gentry, and Jay Hall shot well, but fell a few short of Josh Owens. Josh Owens first round was the difference in hanging on to second.

Women’s Open
Brandy Monnahan was our only Female player. She shot both rounds in the mid 60’s for a total of 132.

Men’s Open
There were 21 Open players and it was quite a battle. There were 9 spots paid out and all of these finished in double digits. After the first round the players on top were between -9 and -5. An old Monkey managed to shoot the nine under. Derek Green and Allen Heston were only a stick off at -8 and McKenzie was one
off them at -7. The second round ended up being an even tighter race at the top. There was a 3 way tie for first after a stellar come back by Arkansas’ Chris Eads. Eads shot a 49 (1018 rated) second round to put Allen Heston and myself in the tie. Worth noting, Derek Green was part of that tie until the last hole. David Christie, like Eads also had a 49 that moved him way up in the cash.

In the play off, Eads threw left just out of the circle, Heston threw long at circles edge, and I through right outside the circle. We had it surrounded, but none of us could capitalize. On to the second hole, we were all in the circle. Heston missed his putt and Eads and I sank our putts to go to the 3rd hole. Eads went first and threw a near perfect drive landing about 10 or 15 to the left of the bucket. I threw a roller that landed pin high 60 to the right. My putt was wide and Eads sealed the deal with his 2 putt! Congrats to Eads, Heston, and all the other players that cashed. To all my card mates, it was a blast.

As I write these Recaps, I can only look at the scores unless I’m part of the battle. If anyone would like to give me some info. on exciting facts feel free to type something up and shoot it to me after the event. The only reason I could talk more about the Open battle is because I was fortunate to be in it. It was a blast.

Presidential Cup VII Recap - Feb 15th, 2022

Q102’s Presidential Cup VII a Dynamic Discs 5k/10k Ace Challenge Event Recap

This was the second stop on the DGM’s Blast Off Tour. It was the 1st PDGA sanctioned B Tier as well. This year’s Presidential Cup was again a Dynamic Discs 5K/10k Ace Challenge. This meant that everyone of the 97 players has an opportunity in the 2nd round to hit an Ace on hole 20 for big money. Ten Thousand for an ace with a DD disc and Five thousand for any other brand. Despite the packed out venue, the big money was safe as mother natures cold and windy conditions made it pretty tough. It was still exciting getting the opportunity to try.

A special thanks to Q102 for being our title sponsor again this year. They also gave us two gift bags for the raffle that had two pair of Korn tickets and other items. Roy Crouch also needs to be praised for hooking us up with paint and flags allowing us to mark the OB’s, Drop Zones, and Mandatories. We appreciate Brian Kisling also for helping set up the morning of and made chile. A big thanks to Andres Flores for setting out all the DZ and Mando signs. To my mom thank you for making the Posole. Thanks to Team Monkey for working both on the front lines and behind the scenes. You all make it look easy. As always, a big shout out to Scott Kisling for always improving on the course, and welcoming us all each year!

The cold air was made worse by the wind on Saturday. The temperature never reached above freezing. I believe 30 degrees was the high. Despite the conditions there were still some great scores shot by the 10 divisions that made up the event.


In the 15 player Rec Division, it was Ethan Harting who got off to the early and big 4 stroke lead over Gregg Cass and Eli Sheafer. In what proved to be the hot round in the division, Bryan Tieke’s 59 still fell three short of Ethan’s two round total. Cameron Banks was only two off Bryan taking 3rd.

There was only one participant in the Intermediate Women’s division. Madison Feedback shot an 85 & a 77. Great improvement in that second round!

14 players competed in the Intermediate division. The top 3 players actually shot 60, 62, and 63 in the opposite order of how they finished. Davis finished 3rd despite his 2 stroke lead going into round 2. Michael Corey’s Consistent pair of 62’s took second and Jacob Winn’s 59 second round was the key to his two stroke victory.

There were 4 Am Masters 60+ players. Michael McBee had a 3 stroke lead on John Parsons, 5 on Brad Hilton, and 6 on Roger Reid. Roger played solid the last round and took second shooting a 65. Michael held on to 1st.

Julie Crouch was the only one in the Am Master 40+ Women’s division. She shot two consistent rounds of 72 & 73.

There were 9 players in the Am Master 40+ division. It was a very close first round with a tie between Seth Hamilton and Mark Vanderhoef. Only one stroke behind them was Ray Presnell and one off him was Charles Rector. Seth Hamilton again was able to best Ray by one in the second round winning by two. Charles and Mark finished 3rd and 4th.

In the huge Advanced Field of 28, Alec Knopf and Jon McCain shot the low scores in opposite rounds. It was Alec’s 58 that was two better than Jon’s 60 that gave him the 2 stroke victory. Tyler Sisco and William Rea finished up 3rd and 4th. this was a tight scoring battle at the top.

There were 5 in the Pro Masters field. Dasun Keylor and Bryan Johnson battled closely to the end. Dasun was able to get Bryan by 1 stroke in each round for the two stroke victory.

There was only one lady in the Pro Women’s division. Brandy Monnahan shot a 74 followed up by a 65. Great 2nd Round!

In the Open division there were 19 players. This was a very tight battle for the top 3 players. Loren Lewis’s 52 hot first round put him in first after round 1. It was Dallas Wrinkle’s 52 and Bradley Brown’s hot round of 51 (shared with Allen Heston) who kept the battle close:
1st Loren Lewis -15
2nd Dallas Wrinkle -14
3rd Bradley Brown -13
4th Braden Denmark -9
5th Tie Allen Heston -6
5th Tie Caleb Hawley -6

The 8th Annual Bear Hollow Ice Bowl presented by: Patriots Gold & Silver Wrap Up - Jan 24th, 2022

Official Results: https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/56122


The 8th Annual Bear Hollow Ice Bowl in Ava, MO was this past Saturday. Again, the temperature made it a true Ice Bowl. There was some snow on the ground and the temperature ranges from mid 20’s to lower 40’s. Although it did warm up in the second round, the winds also picked up. I believe Rick Rothstein’s Ice Bowl slogan of “No Wimps and No Whiners” was up held by everyone, as I never heard any complaining.

Last year we had 50 players at this event. With this years record setting 71 players, the 2022 tour is off to a great start! The Heart of the Hills Thrift Store and Food Pantry will again be the recipients of the food and monetary donations that were raised. Nick Helm, the Bear Hollow founder, will post the donation amounts soon.

There were 11 divisions this year. This showing for a cold day in January is just awesome. Kudos to all of you who braved the the cold conditions.

Here are a few high lights:

Juniors (3) Case Sciba ran away with the win shooting a 59 first round and a 57 2nd round. There was a true battle for 2nd with Conner Yancey besting David Richeson by 2 in the 2nd round.

Rec Women (3) Like the Junior field the ladies also had 3 players. These ladies played tough and made it a very close match up. Liberty Howell took a 1 stroke lead over Madison Feedback in the first round with Joy Vincent only a few off the pace. The second round was a carbon copy of the first, only the girls improved their scores by 5 & 6 strokes. Liberty took down the win shooting a 129, to win by 2.

Rec (23) The largest division was started off fairly close by four players separated by only 4 strokes: Casey Carnell, Brady Weston, Aaron Stillings, and Brady Fox. The second round was different making it a 2 horse show with Brady Fox and Aaron Stillings being the only two to finish under par. Brady with the win with a -6 held on to win over Aaron Stillings who finished at -4.

Int (4) This 4 strong division was a good contest as well. The 1st round scores were only separated by 4. Both Davis Ford and Brett Stoffer shot 52’s while Joshua Owens and Nathan Crandall shot 48’s. Despite Davis being the only one in the division to shoot better his second round, Joshua and Nathan still held on to 1st and 2nd shooting a -4 and an even. Joshua’s -10 finishing score would have won Advanced and finished 4th in Open… Move Up!! To soon? Nah!

MA50 (8) Despite Ray Preznell’s 1 over second round, his solid 3 down first round was enough to hold off Tour and Tournament sponsor Jeff Ford and also Darrin Dodson. His -2 finish was the only under par score in the division. Darrin and Jeff tied as they shot even.

MF40 (1) Julie Crouch shot a 120 total. This score would have taken down the Advanced Women division… I bet Mary would like the competition.

MA40 (4) Peter Michalack took down the win with a a convincing -5 finish. The real battle in this division was for 2nd place between Roy Crouch and Mike Abbott. They both shot similar rounds but their scores were flip flopped in opposite rounds. Mike Abbott finished 2nd just 1 better than Roy.

FA1 (1) Mary Abbott was the only Advanced Lady. She shot a 126 total.

MA1 (9) This division had the highest % of players finishing under par. Almost 78% of the field beat the course. There was definitely a nice battle in this division. There was only 4 strokes separating 1st and 4th after round one. Noah Gentry shot the hot first round at 49. Jon Musick was tied for 2nd, but it was the the scores in the high 40’s by local Drake Ford (taking 2nd) and the winner Nevada McAlpin that made the difference. Nevada won by a stick shooting -9.

MP40 (4) If I had been told I would win this division by 15 strokes, I would have laughed. Seeing the competitors I was certain it would be a tough battle. The first round Dan Newlin was 3 back in his professional debut, with Matt Hitt only 5 back. The second round I managed to play very well. I got some rolls, hit the island, made some putts, and my drives were pretty good. I shot -17 to run away with the win. Congratulations to Dan for finishing 2nd and cashing (and excepting the money). He now has made the moving up official. I look forward to shooting with you more. I have to thank God for letting me compete and play better than I could have ever imagined. Coming fresh off of a 10lb lifting restriction and being limited to only walking for exercise, I know I couldn’t have done it without Him.

MPO (11) Well, it’s no doubt that Jeff Renner was the overall champion blistering a -21 for the day. With all the OB’s and the cold, this is a remarkable score. Rounding off the top five players that cashed were: 2nd place Andrew Presnell (-16), followed by 3rd place James Reichert (-13), 4th place Ryan Elliott (-10) and taking last cash Jon Paul Finney (-7).

Congratulations to Jeff Renner for your incredible play! To all the others that cashed great job. A big thanks to Jeff Ford and Patriot’s Gold & Silver for their title sponsorship. To all the tour sponsors thanks so much for helping make the DGM tour what it is. To the players who continue to support the tour through rain, shine, cold, wind and whatever mother nature brings, you all Rock! Last but not least, thanks Nick Helm for getting this fun course put in years ago. It is great having a place to play in Ava. This event is looked forward to each year by a lot of players. From all of us we appreciate you making this event happen each year!

I hope to see all of you next month in Springfield at the Presidential Cup. You Can Register Here:

Runnin Trails with Squatch Recap

Players checked in starting at 7:45 a.m. and received a player's pack with a disc, shirt, and tour towel bag! Everyone loved the new full turn shortcut and the T-shirt with Squatch on the back that was in the players pack. The morning started out great it was cool with no rain. the field started with 84 people with first round starting at 9am. Towards the end of first round it did start raining but it was not downpouring, most players did very well on the blue course through the rain. they said the trees helped keep most of the rain off of them. After first round which started around 1130am lunch was served hamburger, nachos, and a drink. Most people grabbed a plate and rested in their cars or under the porch to try to stay dry, as it was still raining, till the start of second round. We did have three people drop out after first round. second round started about 2:20 pm with rain still coming down. Second round was done about 5:00 p.m. and we started with cash payouts and am payouts. After all payouts were completed we had the raffle with Laney and Coop taking the RV tonight stay package and Micah took the big ticket item the monkey basket. Everyone did very well for the rain pretty much staying all day it did lighten up here and there but second round pretty much soaked everybody, but they were all troopers. It was a great tournament and everyone did very well and we hope to see you all at the next one!

Thank you to everyone one that came to our 1st Runnin' Trails with Squatch! You all did an amazing job through the rain! Huge shout out to Disc Golf Monkey and Full Turn for helping run the event and to our sponsors thank you too, without all of you this would not be possible!

Welcome to the 9th North Ark Open! We’d like to start off by thanking Doug Bowen, owner of Elephant & Castle Fine Arms our Title Sponsor, as well as, a tour sponsor.

Further related to COVID-19, the state of Arkansas limits gatherings to 100 people or less. Since we have 100 players at the tournament, we must ask that no one brings a caddy. Also, any spectators we might have would be asked not to follow the players. This will help us stay within guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

Disc’n for Cheetah’s VI Recap - Apr 14th, 2021

Disc’n for Cheetah’s VI Recap

The sixth year of the Disc’n for Cheetahs tournament took place this past weekend. This was only the second time that it was played at the Dickerson Park Zoo property. Initially the event was held in Ozark, then Ozark & Prime Trucking and then because of the Pandemic, a temp course was the set up on the zoo grounds. The land is absolutely beautiful, like a hidden oasis. Elevation, trees, a pond, a creek, all make for a fun challenging course despite the fact that it is a shorter course.

The course was in great condition as it had been mowed and prepped by the zoo keepers. The trees were blooming and the Purple Redbuds stole the show of the natural beauty of the property. As expected, there was rain and wind through out the day. The second round had more rain and there were stronger winds to contend with.

This year’s event had been full for three and a half weeks. There was a few drop outs that made some players very happy as they jumped on the chance to play. A maxed out field of 100 with 12 divisions, including a large women’s attendance (11 women and a junior lady) and a total of 4 Juniors was so awesome!

This year we raised $1,800 for the Cheetah Habitat in Kenya. This figure was accomplished by sanctioning the event as a B tier through the charity endowment program set up by the pdga and a raffle. On be half of the Zoo Keepers, AAZK, and the Cheetah Habitat in Kenya, thank you for making this such a success for 6 years in a row. We plan on continuing this for years to come!

Result Recap:

Junior Girls - 9 year Allayna Ward (Lu as they call her) won the junior girls division shooting a +37. This kiddo loves the game so much and you can tell she practices. It will be fun watching here get better and better. She tried to clean out all my mom’s jerky with he winnings :-)

Junior Boys - there were 3 kiddos in this division and all had a great time. Owen, Garret and Elijah finished in that order with Owen shooting a +31. Great job gentleman, and keep playing!

Recreational Women - There were four ladies in this division. Whitney Marcum won this division by several strokes despite being 6 months pregnant! What’s trooper! You Roc Whit!!

Recreational - This was the largest field with 20 players. What a super tight race between the top 4 players that ended up in a pair of ties. The tie for 3rd was between Miro and Allan at +4 (1 stroke off the leaders tying score). The tie for first at +3 between Tyler Dixon and Brett Stofer went sudden death on hole 1. Brett said he teed off first and smacked the building, leaving a tough upshot. Tyler threw down the middle of the fairway and proceeded to lay up for par. Brett rolled to about 35’ and chained out on his putt. This gave Tyler the “W”.

Intermediate Women - Ashley Hood was the only player in this division. We need to get more ladies playing so she has some competition... let’s go! She shot a +32.

Intermediate - There was another close battle in the intermediate between the too 3 players. Tyler Adleman’s -2 was goos enough to hold off Barak Barton and Nevada McAlpin who tied at -1.

Masters 60+ - This was quite a dog fight with 3 of the 4 players tying for 1st at +6. The play off started on hole 1, where all 3 parred. Hole 2 took out Jon Parson’s as he found the OB. This left Brad Hilton and Roger Reid who ended up playing two more holes where Roger proved victorious. This was the first time Roger had beaten both Brad and Jon... Kudos brother!

Masters 50+ - There were 7 players in this division. Darrin Dodson, took the lead in the 1st round and never looked back. He was able to win by 6 strokes over the returning Kevin Elrod and Doug Clark who each shot +9.

Masters 40+ Women - Two ladies battled it out here. Candie Luster from Calico Roc was able to get a win over Julie Crouch (who I am thankful that she did not get hit this tourney). Candie shot a +32 and Julie shot +37. Looking at the scores, you ladies may think about playing INT with Ashley Hood next time. You all would be very competitive with each other.

Masters 40+ - This division always has great competition and the 4 top players seem to always be near the top. Toby Rector was able to hold off the charging Seth Hamilton who shot the hot round of the division (58) in the near come back. Toby shot E, Seth shot +1 and Dan Newlin and Adam West ended up +3.

Advanced - Kody Kutz and Parker Asay were in a close battle to the end it appears. Kody’s 3 stroke lead proved to be the difference as Parker did get Kody by one in the second round, but it wasn’t quite enough. Kody shot -7 and Parker was at -5.

Open Women - Mary Abbott, Brandy Monnahan, Katelyn Belty, and Esmeralda Dodson were the four that competed in this division. Brandy and Katelyn are the two registered Pro players, the other two bumped up. Great job to all. Mary played incredible and took home the win holding off Brandy and Katelyn by 5 strokes. Very impressive win over some good competition!

Open Men - Kyle Webster who snuck in late Friday night (maybe even Saturday morning) was the man who tamed the Cheetahs. I’ve said for a long time Kyle is my favorite pro player. He has all the skills needed to be great, but is humble and so much fun to be around. Class act all the way around. He absolutely lit up the course both rounds, but really killed it in the 2nd round giving him the win by 8 strokes over Andrew Boone and 9 over myself. Congratulations Kyle, and thanks for the fun Video Blog. You can see it on his FB page.

Lucky 13 Wrap Up - Mar 15th, 2021

13 years of the Lucky 13 are now all in the books. 99 Players braved the weather knowing it was going to be a swampy nasty mess for the Elephant & Castles 13th Annual Lucky 13. Unfortunately our local meteorologists were right about the forecast. It was raining when we all started at 9:00, and it continued through the first round. There was a little wind as well, but nothing like the second round. The rain stopped completely before the second round, but the wind picked up at the same time. Rain, wind, mud, water and more water equaled very tough conditions.

There were eleven divisions represented this year. We were excited to have seven women and one junior in the field. Thankfully the 20 hole lay out flowed rather well despite the rough conditions. As always OB’s are what make this wide open course such a challenge. There were two CTP holes sponsored by Innova and Dynamic Discs. Dillon Clinkanbeard won DD’s and Chris Eads one Innova’s. Congrats guys.

The 24 player Open division was a very tight race to the end result in a sudden death tie break between Dasun Keyler and Micah Funderburgh. Their -15’s were two better than David Savage and Chris Eads. In the playoff, Micah parked the hole to take the win with a -15.

The Open women had two players Andrea Eads and Brandy Monnahan. Andrea shot 920 rated golf for the day smashing the course.

The Advanced men had 11 players, and was where the best score of the tournament came from. Andrew Boone, a 969 rated player annihilated his field shooting -18 for the tournament. This score would have one Open by three strokes. Great job, and hope to see you in Open soon. Noah shot a very respectable -7 that was good for 2nd place.

Mary Abbott and Esmeralda Dodson competed in the Advanced Women division. The first round was very close, with Esmeralda up by only a stick. She turned it on in the second round shooting a 66 pulling away and taking the win.

There were 9 players in the Am 40 division. Ray Presnell, (who could have played MA 50+) made a late decision to jump to this division. This was a great choice as he killed it shooting a -3 for the day besting brothers Charles & Toby Rector who tied for second with a +9.

Candie Luster was the loan lady in Am 40. We hope to find you some competition at the next one!

There were 5 players in Am 50+. I want to point out that two of our Tour Sponsors were in this division. Much thanks to Doug Bowen (Elephant & Castle Fine Arms) and Jeff Ford (Patriots Gold & Silver). John Parsons (Co TD of the Marshall Open) won the division shooting +4 which was 2 better than Jeff.

Seventeen players made up the Intermediate field. There were only 2 players in the division shooting under par. Michael Cory fought back from the second card shooting a 54 to leap card several players. Although it was a great come back, it wasn’t quite good enough to catch Tyler Klinglehoefer’s -8 victory.

The largest field was again the Recreational Division with 25. It’s amazing to see how many new players there are. Our sport keeps growing and it’s awesome! Nevada McAlpin shot a very impressive -4 winning with ease. Rodney Gemme was 2nd with a +7.

There were two in the Rec Women field. Whitney Marcum and Julie (She-Ra) Crouch finished strong. Whitney who, is pregnant was able to battle through to the end and take the win.

There was only one Junior registered. This was only Wyatt Sorrell’s 2nd event, if I’m not mistaken. I am sure he is waiting for a good weather event.

Shout out to the Luster’s on winning the custom Monkey Trap basket.

On behalf of the Republic Parks & Recreation, Thank You all for playing, and Congratulations to all the players who cashed. There are plenty more events coming up soon, so don’t wait to register.

Until next time, Aces and Deuces to you all!

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!!
