Patriots Gold & Silver’s 1st Runnin’ the Trails with Squatch Recap - May 20th, 2021

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!

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!!
