Beaver State Fling – Disc Golf Show Episode 48

Disc Golf Show – Show Notes

Brought to you in part by Final 9 Sports and the Patreon for the Disc Golf Show!

Hello and welcome to the Disc Golf Show Episode 48? 4 YEARS!!!

 

Today is Sunday, June 4th.

 

And our guest host is Jeff from the Beaver State Fling presented by KEEN, which will be held this coming weekend, June 9-11!

 

If you don’t know, Jeff Mittl is the current and long standing TD for the Beaver State Fling. Jeff earned himself a PDGA Tournament Director of the year award in 2010 for his work with the BSF since taking the TD reigns in 2009 and continues to develop and improve the event year after year. Jeff has maintained NT status for the BSF since 2009 with the exception of 2014 when Portland hosted Pro World’s and Jeff of course was an instrumental part of that core team of organizers. Jeff Mittl has had two other TDs helping him along the way with Michael Phillips in 2009-10 and Jeff Hagerty 2011-2017. The Jeff Duo has proven to be a well oiled machine over the last 6 years supported by an amazing staff of core volunteers.

  1. Utah Open – Disc Golf Pro Tour Event
    1. Round 1
      1. Four way tie at top in MPO with Bobby Musick, Ulibarri, Koling, and Wysocki all at -8
        1. Paige dropped out due to family emergency
      2. Catrina Allen and Jessica Weese tied for the lead at +6
        1. Due to the miscommunication and no rules in the caddy book, many people played the hole wrong and didn’t use the drop zone
        2. What we heard is that the players meeting had mention of this, but nothing was in the caddy book
        3. This would constitute a 2 stroke penalty on all those that didn’t use the drop zone if their disc went in the water, but no penalties were added due to the confusion
      3. Bit of controversy over a drop zone that is on one of the holes, 16 I think
      1. Catrina and Jessica battle back and forth and end up tied going into the final round
      2. Battle between Sockibomb and Big Jerm

      4. Wysocki ends the round with a 3 stroke lead over Anthon, Koling, and Ulibarri
    2. Round 2
      1. The battle between Cartina and Jessica continued, pushing the final round into a playoff that lasted 3 holes until Jessica Weese was able to come out on top
        1. Dana Vicich threw the overall hot round of -12, giving him 3rd
        2. Anthon and Wysocki both shot a -11, leaving Ricky with the win

Discs

  1. Discraft – Punisher (Distance Driver)
    Discraft Punisher is a very fast distance driver that performs best with lots of power behind it. Expect extra glide whether you’re throwing backhand or sidearm, and a consistent fade into your target.” – by Discraft
    http://www.pdga.com/announcements/whale-discraft-punisher-17-distance-driver
  2. Discraft – Ringer GT (Putt & Approach)
    “It’s a beefier Ringer! Your short game will get an instant boost when you deploy Ringer GT. Discraft has taken all the best attributes of Ringer and added a subtle Groove Top that increases grip confidence while shifting the stability of Ringer from 1.5 to Ringer GT‘s 1.7 rating. Players use it more often for driving and approaching when a soft landing is mandatory and wind needs managing.” – by Discraft

Listener Feedback

 

  • Review from ITunes: One of the best DG podcasts going!

 

  1. in iTunes by Nicolai from Norway on May 13, 2017
  2. Love the these dudes! Seriously, if you’re into disc golf then this is IMO one of the two best podcasts currently being made. News, gear, discs and most of all lots of fun – I’ve literally been stared down with the “what is up with you??” look for laughing so hard during field work.
