I got the best birthday present of all!! I won the NorCal Points Championship! It was a close, tightly contested race all year against some of the best in the state and I scraped and clawed all year long and won it. Barely. But barely counts!! After the final round at Rocklin at the NorCal Finals I was sweating the results, as Les Swift and Mark Whittingslow both made a run at the title, finishing 1rst and 2nd in the tournament to my 4th. I was the points leader going in but wasn't at all sure I had done enough to hold on to the lead, but somehow I squeaked it out!
This is my proudest accomplishment in Disc Golf to be sure. The Advanced Masters division is chock full of talented players which makes me doubly proud to come out on top. Congrats to Les and Mark for finishing up the year 2nd and 3rd, and a tip of the hat to James Brennan who pushed me hard all year long! I'll remember this birthday for a LONG time!

Thanks to the whole NorCal crew for putting on a first rate PDGA series!
