A few more as well I think. Katy S. from Minn. Sweet about Johansen, big gun there that will represent!!! Cool to see Martin get added. We talked about it in McCook last year.

Work on your game Pat. Good things will hopefully come for you. I bet it would be nice to have someone in Vegas on the Team. Great win last week in the PDGA event down there. Way to come out with a bang!!

C U Later,
Yeah it's definitely sweet to see them guys get on team. Those up and coming players are gonna be freegin good. Anyhoo, yeah I'm definitely working on the game, getting out there and putting, doing fieldwork, and just the casual rounds almost everyday. I'm definitely patient, I know that it'll happen in time if it's meant to. I'll be at a bunch of tourneys this year and a good amount of big NT's and A-Tiers. I'll see ya around. It's definitely an Innova dominated area here. Anyways I guess we'll just have to wait and see. Thanks again! laters.
Folks, I can't speak about a number of the new team members but I definately know the new players from Michigan. In alphabetical order: Ziggy Bierkoven (pronounced Berry-ko-ven), Kevin Tomasitis (Tom-ah-sigh-tus) and Liz Carr.

Ziggy (really Siegfried) is a 15 yr old phenom who dominated Am Worlds last year. He ran away with a Jr's title and his handicap rating bested the Am 1 winner too. Let me summarize his strengths and weaknesses. He is good at everything, especially putting and touch. His weakness is only that we haven't seen how far he will advance and how strong his motivation is. Unless distracted by chasing chicks he should be top ten in the world within a few years. ((There, if that doesn't curse him, nothing will. I have to play against him sometimes))

Kevin is big, strong, athletic and throws a ton. Maybe a ton and a half. He just turned Pro and there is no way to predict how far and how fast he will advance. When Geoff Bennett is in town they regularly practice together. Too bad Geoff is a road warrior because Kevin needs someone to push him. Oh, Kevin's main flaw is that he has a full time job. If he gets fired his propects will improve dramatically.

Liz Carr (pronounced Car- well, what did you think?) is a young pro who is small and slender and rock hard (seriously, she rock climbs for a hobby). She has shocking power. You just don't expect someone her size and gender to throw like she does. I saw her park a '400 hole. She seems to have a rabid desire to play and practice the game. Her biggest flaw is that she is engaged to Critter Bill Themm. Otherwise her judgment seems fine. At her current rate of improvement she will set the women's distance record and win the worlds in a few years.
Very nice mark, thanks for all the input. That's cool to summarize up all the players for us, we'll I've heard about Ziggy and I am definitely interested in seeing how fast he progresses this year. He's definitely gonna be a top pro soon if he sticks with it. Good luck to all of ya guys!
