SUMMER LEAGUE – WEEK 11

Week eleven saw 23 golfers record a score and some notching their first 8 scores towards a playoff berth.  Scores have been updated and the crunch is on to drop those bad rounds with only 4 weeks of regular league play remaining.

Some hot scores:

  • Brent threw a 6 under 48
  • Reggie made his return in style with a 7 under 47
  • and Chris threw his second 9 under 45 of the season, nice job!

Weekly Winners:

  • Brien parked his drive on number 11, WITH A BACKHAND THROW!  to earn himself the weekly Double Trouble Brewing Co.  CTP
  • We held a throw-off near basket 5 back to to basket 4.  The first two throws were the closest but Clint edged out Brent to take home a Hairy Harvest Gateway Apache and a Legacy sticker and bracelet.

Good luck to everyone competing at Breezy Treez in Brampton and the Throwdown at Chicopee in Kitchener this weekend!  The LDD’s on the road!

Week 11 CTP

SUMMER LEAGUE – WEEK 10

It looked like tornado Tuesdays (as Brent has coined league night) was going to strike again but the weather cleared and a nice round of golf was enjoyed by all.

Some hot scores:

  • Clint threw another 8 under par, 46.  Nice shooting Clint!

Weekly Winners:

  • Shane had his disc pulled from the pile for the weekly members prize draw.  Shane earns himself a sweet LDD tuque, a Disc Golf Guy sticker and a Mill Street bottle opener.
  • Brent and Ryan had to pace it out to see who threw the CTP, word is Brent edged Ryan out by a toe to take home the Double Trouble Brewing Co. CTP
  • For all the die-hards that have been braving the extreme weather this year, we threw a magical toss from the “No Swimming” sign all the way to basket number 2.  Some creative lines were attempted but in the end it was Rick edging out Brent to take home a Hairy Harvest Magic, Legacy sticker and bracelet.

This past Saturday the LDD hit up the Toronto Island Open to great success.  In the MA1 division, Clint placed 2nd.  In MA2 Brent placed 2nd and Eric won 1st!  Eric earned his golden ticket to the provincial finals which brings the total to 11 PDGC players who have qualified to date.  With 3 league golden tickets left to give out, PDGC will have no fewer than 14 players representing at the provincials!   July 29 is Golden Ticket night at PDGC so be sure to attend!  The 3 tickets will be awarded as follows (to those who have not already qualified):

  1. Best league average
  2. Best score of the night
  3. A vote for the player who wants it most!  Start campaigning now.

(ODSA rules state that league tickets must be awarded in a competitive manner so the 4 players with the most votes will play against each other July 29th for the last ticket)

The LDD will be in action again July 19 and 20th for the ODSA gold series Brampton Breezy Treez.  This is a merch-out tournament so there is no players pack or lunch but if you register before this coming Sunday July 13th, you’ll save $5.  http://www.discgolfontario.com/forum/index.php/topic,2046.0.html

I believe there might also be a crew heading to Kitchener July 19th for the cash payout Throwdown at Chicopee.  http://www.discgolfontario.com/forum/index.php/topic,1936.0.html  Great to see so much Disc Golf action happening this summer!

Week 10 CTP

SUMMER LEAGUE – WEEK 9

League fell on Canada Day this week but 15 golfers still showed up and notched scores towards a playoff berth.  Scores have been updated for the past couple weeks and can be found through the PDGC Summer Roster link on the right side of the home page.

Some hot scores:

  • Clint nailed 8 birdies in a row to record a -8!
  • Jake crushed his P.B. by 11 strokes to score in the 50s for his first time.
  • Shane hit 3 huge putts from outside 60 feet and just barely chained out on another 70 footer, nice putting Shane!

Weekly Winners:

  • Before the round started we had a prize draw for the 9 players who were present last week.  Shane C was the lucky winner, taking home a  2013 TIML Prodigy D3, Memorial Championship toque, a sticker and Legacy bracelet.
  • Rob F put his drive 8 feet from the pin to earn himself the weekly Double Trouble Brewing Co. CTP.
  • It was such a nice night we held a CTP throw to determine the weekly members prize winner.  Broc put his drive closest to earn an Innova Tern, Legacy sticker and bracelet.

This Saturday is the Toronto Island Open and there’s a small crew heading down from Peterborough.  If you haven’t played the island yet this is a great opportunity to take in one of the best disc golf course experiences in Canada.  Good luck to everyone making the trip!   More information can be found on DGO: http://www.discgolfontario.com/forum/index.php/topic,2008.0.html

Week 9 CTP

SUMMER LEAGUE – WEEK 8

The thunder and lightening cleared just in time for league and the weather turned quite nice for a round of disc golf.  9 players stuck it out and recorded a score for week 8.

Weekly Winners:

  • Brent M. placed his drive on hole 8 close enough to earn himself the weekly Double Trouble Brewing Co. CTP.
  • We didn’t have a prize available for the weekly members draw so we’ll bring an extra one next week and do a draw for the 9 players who were present then.

The LDD were in Midland for the PDGA ‘B’, ODSA Gold Series Summer Solstice V.  Rick G battled it out in the MA2 division ending up tied for 3rd.  In doing so, Rick earned his provincial finals golden ticket.  Way to go Rick!  In the MA2 division Clint B finished 3rd and Aaron C finished 2nd.  They both shot very well, recording mid to high 900s rated rounds!  Karl F and Adam G tied for 6th and earned their golden tickets, way to go guys!  Peterborough will have a very strong contingent representing at the ODSA Provincial Finals at Whisky Run in August.  Golden ticket night is not that far off, we’ll be awarding the 3 PDGC golden tickets at one special night in July.  More details to follow.
