The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf
SOJ #1 @ North Bend & Coos Bay Wrap Up
The State of Jefferson FlipOut League kicked off its 5th year, Saturday May 15th in North Bend and Coos Bay. Thirty one players completed in 3 divisions of doubles action and adventure at Windsor and Mingus Disc Golf Courses.
Taking first in the Random Flip Division was Anthony Salee and Quinten Lewis. They tied with Jered Thompson and Swain Simmons with a score of 93 (Par 108.) Anthony and Quinten won play off that took 3 holes to decide.
The Amateur Division was won by local golfers Mike & Sebastian (84) with Leon Dillon & Caleb Brooks (88) coming in second. Leon and Dillon had a 1 stroke lead on Mike & Sebastian after the first round, but Mike & Sebastian shot a hot round of 41 against Leon and Caleb’s 46 at Mingus to take the home the Am title.
The Open division was dominated by the local team “Pow, Right In The Kisser” (Scott Whithers & Zaq Jones.) They shot a scorching 79 with Bo Curry and Derek Brown coming in second with an 84. Congrats to Scotty & Zaq. They shot very well and took home the $100 first place prize.
Other highlights included Bo Curry’s ace on hole 6 at Mingus in the second round. He took home $31 for that effort. We also raised $180 to go towards disc golf equipment, coaching, and activities for youth.
We’d like to thank Scotty & Zaq for taking on the role of course hosts, printing out my forgotten score cards, and bringing CTP prizes. I owe you one Scotty and will try never again to call you at 5:30 am the morning of the event asking help with score cards. YOU ROCK!!! We’d also like to thank Disc Golf Oregon for being one of our script vendors, along with Scotty, Zaq, Derek Brown, and Anthony Salee. And last but not least, everyone who played and especially traveled to the bay.
See you at Lawson Bar on June 26th. We confirmed Saturday that we’ll have BBQ ribs provided by the Simmons family & Lawson Bar Shuttle Service for lunch that day. That should be enough to get a record number of golfers to complete.
