Strauss/Gula set Dubs record at Thrill on the Hill

Thanks for coming to the Thrill on the Hill, everyone! It was another beautiful Autumn day, just like we requested. Send me your DiscGolfScene email if you want your scores to appear on your profile.

Congrats to Frank Strauss and Alex Gula for shooting a dubs record 46 in Rd 1 en route to a superb 94 (-14) AM1 tournament win. Their 3-throw lead was hard to overcome in Rd 2 as Karl and I matched them stroke for stroke with a 48.

AM1 winners: Alex and Frank
You could tell something special was in the air after Alex deuced hole 14 from just past the second tier. The hawk that is now calling Devens home was there to see this rare birdie too. Frank and Alex played steady, solid golf all day. Great job.

The Hawk

Brett Norcross and Austin Brooks held off Andy Allen and Jason Paul to take home the AM2 crown with a hot 49/53 (101), while Recs Luke Sisco and Martin Janhunen shot lights out in their first-ever tournament, also shooting a 101! Great job guys. Watch out for these guys next year, AM2s!

AM2 winners: Brett and Austin

Rec winners: Martin and Luke

There weren't any aces, but Pete Nevius chained out twice I think I heard. Doug Callaghan won the ace pot throw off with a beautiful tomahawk that landed right next to the basket. He won 60-something bucks.

The turnout for Speed was disappointing, especially after so many people had signed up for it or told me they were going to do it.

The old guys win Speed! Karl, Rob, Donnie

Nonetheless, age and experience prevailed as Karl Molitoris spanked the field by 23 seconds. Karl shot -1 for a final adjusted time of 2:55. Rob Walker came in second (-1, 3:18) and Donnie Phillips finished third (+1, 3:28). I took fourth (+1, 4:02) while Doug C (E, 4:48) pulled up the rear .

I guess us old people are a little more adventurous than the young, scared whippersnappers. Thanks Tim, Nat, and Bobka for spotting and scoring. More pix and video coming later.

Look for the opening of our new store behind basket 12 next month. Killer B Disc Golf!
