SUMMER LEAGUE – WEEK 15

The final night of regular season league saw more thunderstorms threaten play, a regular theme this year.  The thunderstorms held off but the rain did not.

Weekly Winners:

  • Darrell’s drive was close enough to win the weekly Double Trouble Brewing Co. CTP
  • Jake threw an absolutely amazing shot to park the first of two magical tosses of the night,  Jake parked his drive from tee 2 to the practice basket, he’s getting better every week!  Jake wins an Innova Pro Orc and a Legacy sticker
  • Broc’s drive was a little off the mark on the second magical toss (from the practice basket to hole 1) but a friendly tree knocked it to within 15 feet of the basket.  Broc won an LDD tuque and Discraft sticker.

Week 14 CTP

SUMMER LEAGUE – WEEK 13

Golden Ticket Night was held on week 13 of league and the battle for the few remaining tickets was fierce.  Chris M secured the first of three tickets by shooting the best average 8 league scores (2nd) and best average 3 scores (4th).  The second ticket went to the player who shot the lowest score of the night.  Darrell B won with a very impressive 10 under par, 44 to earn ticket number two!  The third ticket went down to a 3-hole playoff between Jarrod, Ryan, Terry and Reggie.  Reggie birdied all three holes to wrap up the third and final ticket!  Congratulations to Chris, Darrell and Reggie on earning your place at the ODSA Provincial Championships later in August!  That brings the total to 14 players who will be representing the PDGC at provincials this year, way to go!

Some hot scores and an Ace!:

  • Adam G shot a 9 under, 45 and Darrell B took home the honours for the best round of the night at -10, 44!
  • Terry D sailed an anhyzer shot through the cedar forest, hole 12, just clearing the sawed off stump and coming to rest nicely in the basket.  Terry earns himself the weekly $50 ace pot, nice shot Terry!

Weekly Winners:

  • Matt S parked his drive on hole 13, taking home the Double Trouble Brewing Co. CTP
  • New PDGC member Brad C threw a tight shot on the magical CTP to earn himself a Hairy Harvest Gateway Element, Paragon Sticker, Glide Sticker and Discfunctional Disc Golf drink koozie!
