The 1st Disc Golf Monkey Open - Nov 16th, 2009
The weather was absolutely perfect Saturday the 14th for the season finale Disc Golf Monkey Open tournament in Springfield, MO. No clouds, no rain, no wind and close to 75 degrees. Who would have ever thought this could be possible in November? A field of 78 took part in the last tournament of the Disc Golf Monkey Tour 2009. This was only two players shy of the tour average, 80 players. The tournament flowed fairly smooth considering all holes were filled with at least 4 players.
Adam Hunt, took home over all honors shooting an 11 under in a come from behind birdie shoot out. The last 9 holes was an incredible display of golf by both Adam and 2nd place finisher Kyle McClure. Other winners included Kevin Hart in the Pro Masters, Mike Nower in Advanced, Stan Balke in Grand Masters, Trevor Coquillard in Intermediate, Adam Meecham in Recreational (Meecham won over Adam West in a play off), and Gina Williams in the Womens division. Great job and congratulations to all of you.
