The 2nd Annual Jefferson City Open - Oct 27th, 2009
The 2nd Annual Jefferson City Open was the 7th stop on the Disc Golf Monkey Tour 2009. Despite the frigid air and neighboring tournaments in Olathe, KS and Jasper, Arkansas, the 51 player field was a welcomed success. George Smith from Columbia, Missouri, took home the top honors winning the Open division with a 101 score (9 under). All scores and other winners can be viewed at www.pdga.comhttp://www.pdga.com/event?TournID=9600. The course was in great playing condition despite rain in the days before before the event. Thank you to Todd Hohenstreet and the Jefferson City Club Members that helped get things in order. On top of the “pick your own prizes” payout (standard for the DGM Tour 2009 events), local club member Kevin Myers provided all divisions with 1st place trophies that were greatly appreciated! Thanks Kevin.
All players were again treated to a players pack that was second to none. The pack included; a tourney shirt, tourney disc, free ring of fire, free CTP, and lunch! We also had a raffle to benefit the EDGE program. Over $150 was raised! This brought the total for the Disc Golf Monkey's Tour 2009 to $1,600! Over $500 in prizes were donated by Hooters, Innova, EDGE, and the Disc Golf Monkey. I would like to thank each of you for your continued support in the EDGE sponsorship. There was also another fund raiser collected on a somber note. A commemorative Tye Disc, provided by Tony Hulin, was auctioned and a donation was taken for local disc golfer Dan Clarke who passed away a week before the event. Over $220 was raised. This was greatly appreciated by Dan Clark's family.
