There Was No Shortage Of Drama At The Conclusion Of This Year's Beaver State Fling

 

The final day of any tournament has the potential to bring its fair share of excitement, but when you’re at the Beaver State Fling and the top two players are only two strokes apart, you know you’re bound to see some amazing golf! Sunday’s round began with Paul McBeth leading the pack while Ricky Wysocki was hot on his trail. Both Eagle McMahon and Anthony Barela were tied for third place, proving there was more than one battle occurring on the lead card.

 

Building Up The Momentum

The round started off a little more lackluster than normal, with McBeth carding a bogey on hole one and Wysocki taking a par on the first three holes of the final day. Once the players cleared the tightly wooded holes on Milo East, the pressure began to build.

In years past, the “Genius” hole has often been a score separator for the pros, as some can convert an amazing drive into an eagle, while others can easily rack up strokes. Though he gave it a solid run, McBeth failed to repeat his back to back eagles on holes 9 and 10 like he has in past tournaments here, and this started to open the door for Ricky to take charge.

Both Wysocki and Barela carded 2’s on hole 9, and McBeth slowly started to give away strokes to his card mates. Hole 12’s island created another opportunity for Rick, as McBeth went OB and took a bogey, allowing the three other pros to take a stroke from him.

 

Here’s Where It Got Interesting

For most of the round, both Rick and Paul seemed to play smart golf and didn’t really try to push each other too hard. It was almost like they kept waiting to see which one of them would step on the gas first. After the long par 5 on Milo East, Wysocki saw his chance to take home the victory.

As they approached hole 15, the gallery stood on the sidelines to watch the players throw short yet calculated shots toward the basket. Knowing he had to capitalize everywhere he could, Wysocki ran a massive putt and connected with chains to get a thunderous roar from the crowd. His raptor legs came out in full effect as he retrieved his putter from the basket and a fist pump showed spectators he was in it to win.

 

Coming Down To The Wire

With the scores tied up as they approached hole 16, it was clear that Eagle had secured the third place position as Barela lost momentum on the back 9. McBeth and Wysocki traded scores back and forth for the remaining few holes, each of them trying to run putts and secure the win.

After a bogey from Paul on hole 18, it was determined the top two players would enter into a playoff. Tee shots on hole 1 were a little wide, and both men carded a 3. Ricky’s shot on hole 2 landed within the circle and the crowd knew he had the chance to take the win home as Paul’s drive settled farther away. In the end, Wysocki made his winning putt after Paul’s missed birdie attempt.

The players are now off to Georgia for Pro Worlds next week. Is it Paul’s turn to take back his title, or will Wysocki go for a repeat? How will this year’s BSF play into the mindset of both men? We’re excited to find out!

Beaver State Fling Day 2 Gives Spectators A Show

 

Is it still considered moving day if the top players don’t really move a lot? Today’s scores didn’t see enough variation to change tomorrow’s lineup, and once again showed the gallery why these players always rise to the highest ranks. Despite the fickle forecast and massive backups, our lead card pushed through to create what will be an incredible showing on Sunday.

 

Putting The Pedal To The Medal

Ricky Wysocki knew that today was the day to make some magic happen, as his best chance of taking home the 2017 BSF win is to start off Sunday’s round within striking distance of Paul McBeth. He did just that, shooting a hot 11 down and earning him the second place position going into tomorrow. His 1072 rated performance didn’t seem to be hampered by the sometimes oppressive rain, nor did he lose momentum during the round’s multiple backups.

Spectators often found themselves waiting half an hour at some holes, as at least three to four cards were backed up on the West course at varying times. Though the waiting can be hard on one’s mental game, the players stayed occupied by chatting and stretching to make sure they stayed loose.

The rest of the lead card scored impressive numbers despite the conditions, with McBeth shooting a -7, Eagle McMahon carding a -4, and a fresh face to the top card Anthony Barela doing work and ending his round at 6 down. Paul will lead the pack on Sunday with a total of 23 down, with Wysocki close behind at -21. Both McMahon and Barela currently sit at -18.

 

Running Away With The Win

On the ladies side of things, Paige Pierce put on an incredible performance once again, scoring her third consecutive 1000+ rated round of the weekend. Despite her quick and unexpected trip back home during the Utah Open last weekend, Pierce arrived in Oregon with the determination to win. She was the only woman to shoot under par today with a 57 on the grueling par-61 Milo East course.

Sunday’s round will really be a battle for second place for the pro women, as Catrina Allen, Valarie Jenkins, and Sarah Hokom are all one stroke apart. Pierce leads the pack with a 15 stroke head start over Allen, who sits at +7 for the tournament. Jenkins ended the day with a total of 8 over, and Hokom rounds out the lead card at 9 over in total.

 

Will There Be A Big Show?

The men’s final round will be played on the East course, where in years past McBeth’s back-to-back eagles have stolen the thunder from other players. With a close race to finish out the event, who will play smart and who will be gutsy and push for the win? Stay up to date on live scoring to catch all the action and see who takes home the title at the 2017 Beaver State Fling.

The 2017 Beaver State Fling - Let's Recap Day 1

 

There’s a lot to talk about when it comes to day one of 2017’s BSF, as this NT packs two rounds into the first day. There was a lot of golf, a lot of rain, and a lot of frustration. While June typically brings sunny skies to the rest of the country, Oregon is known for its temperamental weather. We experienced absolute downpours with gusty winds only to be greeted with blue skies twenty minutes later. All throughout the day, spectators could be heard saying “Welcome to Oregon.”

 

Confidence Prevailed During Round 1

At 9:00 am the air horn sounded with the men’s open division excited to get the show started. Media coverage was spotted filming a stellar card, featuring Philo Brathwaite, Pacific NW players Kyle Crabtree and Nate Doss, as well as Dude ambassador and Oregon local Dustin Keegan. All four players matched each other shot for shot, even when it came to the more challenging and tightly wooded holes.

But trouble started to brew just after hole 5, as those under the thick tree cover could hear the rain beating down around them. This weather seemed to take players by surprise, as the live scoring showed a bit of a momentum shift across all cards. However, once everyone’s umbrellas were out and mindsets were changed, the pros seemed to move into “rain mode” and finished the round strong.

The leaders going into round 2 included both Paul McBeth and Ricky Wysocki, who shot the hot score of -9 and were closely followed by Anthony Barela, Nate Doss, and Eagle McMahon who were each at 8 down.

 

Did A Little Rain Ruin The Party?

It seemed that everyone couldn’t wait to eat lunch in their car and warm up for a bit after round one’s offerings. As the second round began, the gallery increased sizably, as did the wind gusts. By the time the men’s lead card was half way through the Milo East course, rain was pelting the players and winds blew strong enough to change the trajectory of their discs in mid-flight.

The scores reflected this shift, as many players carded at least three or four strokes more than they did during the morning’s round. Far fewer birdies were seen during the afternoon, and no eagles were to be had unlike what spectators saw previously in the day - Wysocki, McMahon, and Ulibarri had all carded threes on hole 6 West’s par-5.

 

Let’s Hope We Make It All Three Days

Now here’s the concern on many people’s minds: we’ve seen far too many events this year become severely affected by weather, so much so that it has sparked a discussion about inclement weather policies moving forward.

Are we about to see a repeat of GBO? While it’s not the final day of the tournament, Saturday’s forecast calls for thunderstorms and a steady rain will make itself known through the rest of the weekend. How will the players perform on these long and grueling courses? Stay tuned to the live scoring and see what happens!

Masters Cup Final Round - The Battle For Second Place

 

Spoiler alert: Paul McBeth won the 2017 Masters Cup. If you’ve paid any attention to the first or second rounds of this weekend’s tournament, that news probably doesn’t come as a surprise. Once McBeast mode was activated, there was no stopping him, as he averaged 1077-rated golf between the three rounds.


Ending the tournament with a total of 34 down, the pressure to win was taken off of Paul after his astounding performance day one. What became clear as the tournament moved forward was that the real excitement was around who would claim second and third place positions.


It’s Like Moving Day All Over Again


Saturday saw some hot rounds and a good amount of movement on the scoreboard, and it set in place an expectation that anything could happen on Sunday. With so many players within a stroke or two from the top positions, even the slightest error on the golf course could mean someone else moves ahead.


There were moments where it seemed like the number two spot could be anyone’s game, with pars, birdies, and the occasional bogey being thrown into the mix. About halfway through the final round, there were more than a dozen players within two strokes of second place. Then, as the day got hotter and the backups got longer, some people started to slip.


The Back Nine Changed It All


Once the round started to wind down, it became pretty clear who was going to come out ahead. The lead card saw Ricky Wysocki skyrocket to second place with eight birdies and only one par on the back nine. This ended up securing his position behind Paul with a total of -24 for the tournament.


Members of the gallery who kept up to date on live scoring found that Washington’s Kyle Crabtree was sneaking up the ranks, and after shooting an impressive 8 down on his final round, he barely ousted the rest of the field who had a chance at third.


There was visible frustration today as Jeremy Koling’s round didn’t quite go how he had planned. Although he only carded one bogey throughout the 18 holes, his pars were limited as he had a hard time off the tee. Koling ended up shooting five down and took home 4th place.


Many were cheering on Christopher Watson, who catapulted himself to the lead card on day two after shooting a 1056-rated round on Friday. The Masters Cup was only his second tournament of the year, and so far he’s averaging well over 1000 for the 2017 season. However, after his final round was said and done, -3 wasn’t enough to push him to the top. He and Austin Turner shared 7th place.


Trading Places


Just like we’ve seen in previous years, Paul and Ricky seem to go back and forth trading victories with each other. Who will take charge at one of the year’s most picturesque events, the Beaver State Fling? With challenging holes and the opportunity for them to show off their skills, it’s sure to be an exciting event.

Moving Day At Masters Cup Certainly Lives Up To Its Name

Christopher Watson displayed confidence and skill during Saturday’s round.


When you look at the results from day two of the 2017 Masters Cup, you might ask yourself if there was a typo. But then you remind yourself, “Oh, well it’s McBeth.” After Saturday’s round was said and done, Paul is entering the last day of the tournament with a 13 stroke lead over second place. What exactly happened to push him so far ahead? This time, there was more than just McBeast mode at play.


A Star Emerges From The Pack


Saturday’s lead card was a treat to watch, not only because McBeth was focused and played well, but because of the caliber of each of the three other players. After a hot round on day one, Manabu Kajiyama continued to impress the gallery with his smooth and consistent play.


Spectators often wowed and commented how “buttery” his form is, as he makes shooting 1000+ rated rounds look easy. Despite playing a steady round with only one bogey, Kajiyama’s -3 score wasn’t enough to keep him at the top of the pack for Sunday. He moved down the ranks to a three-way tie for 7th.


Nate Doss surely wanted to make some moves yesterday as he knows DeLa like the back of his hand. It seemed that he had a hard time really getting his game going, as his 24 holes were sprinkled with bogeys and birdies alike. His frustration was visible throughout the day, and after finishing at 2 down, he will begin the final round in 10th place.


One of the more talked about players from moving day was Northern California’s Christopher Watson, who made his way onto the lead card by shooting a 1056-rated 8 down on Friday. Watson proved himself to be cool under pressure, as he was on the card with some of the sport’s top players and had his performance captured on film. He shot -4 on Saturday which was just enough to secure his spot once again on the lead card for the final round.


What Happened Elsewhere?


The rest of the day held an interesting turn of events, as spectators were shocked to see Ricky Wysocki card 11 pars in a row. Despite this uncharacteristic play, he still managed to shoot a -7 and is currently sitting in second place with 13 down.


As the scores were tallied, it was discovered that a few players made some big moves, as we saw another NorCal native with a super hot round. James Proctor started the tournament at a slow pace and ended Friday with a 994-rated performance. He more than made up for it his second time around, matching McBeth for the hot round at 11 down.


Carding a bogey-free round and turning up the heat, Jeremy Koling also played exceptionally well, so well in fact that he boosted himself to Sunday’s lead card with a 10 down after his round of 24 holes. Koling and Watson are both tied for third place.


The Masters Cup/Worlds Connection


You can’t help but see a pattern starting to emerge between success at the Masters Cup and how that translates into championships at Pro Worlds. The four consecutive years that Paul McBeth won in Santa Cruz also saw him take down the World Champion title, while in 2016 both events were won by Wysocki. What will this year hold? We’re pretty sure Paul has this weekend in the bag, so only time will show if there’s a true connection or not.


The men’s final round tees off at 2:00 pm local time. Be sure to catch the action hole by hole on PDGAlive.com.

Round One Of The 2017 Masters Cup Is No Match For McBeast

 

Spectators and players alike gathered in sunny Santa Cruz, California to watch an amazing event take place - not only was it the first round of the 2017 Masters Cup, but it was the day that Paul McBeth absolutely dominated the course with a new record of -15. Friday presented ideal conditions with clear skies and moderate temperatures, and fans got to see many of the top pros put on a great show.


Familiar Faces Graced The Top Card

The last men’s card to tee off on day one was quite the mixture of players, as fan favorite Ricky Wysocki joined Thomas Tomaselli, winner of the Masters Cup Amateur event two weeks ago. Tomaselli had taken down the first place position with an 8 stroke lead, securing his spot on the top men’s card on Friday.

Spectators were in for a treat from Manabu Kajiyama, who started his 2017 season by taking 4th place at the Aussie Open. Rounding out the card was Josh Anthon, playing in his first NT event since his last appearance in Santa Cruz in 2013. The group teed off at 2:20 pm local time in 75-degree weather and an excitement to get the round started.


Sneaking Up From Behind

Beginning his round just ten minutes prior to the top card, Paul McBeth sported a fresh haircut and looked ready to attack the challenging DeLaveaga course. Having secured four consecutive wins here from 2012 through 2015, it seemed that McBeth had one goal in mind - come out on top.

His round started off with some uncharacteristic play, as he parred the first two holes and carded a bogey on hole four. After that, something seemed to click, as he birdied eight of the next nine holes. Hole 14 gave him some trouble and his second bogey of the round, and he finished strong carding a birdie on eight of the remaining ten holes.

One of his more impressive moves was to secure the course record on the last hole of the day. Those familiar with this course know it as “The Top of the World,” which gives an amazing view of Santa Cruz while at the same time providing a challenge to even the most high-level players.

Paul’s drive was right on line but ended up about 55 feet short of the pin. With a decently sized gallery watching, he sunk his putt to bring his total score to 15 down and an unofficially rated 1104 round.


Can Anyone Catch Up?

It seems that Paul has secured his top spot early on, as the second place score on Friday was trailing behind him by seven strokes. Surprisingly, Wysocki ended his round at -6 and is in a six-way tie for 5th place. Even after one round, he’s usually within striking distance of first place, so Saturday’s round might show him really stepping on the gas.

Saturday’s top card features McBeth at -15, California local Christopher Watson at -8, and both Kajiyama and Santa Cruz native Nate Doss tied for third at -7 each. Get ready to see some real score separations as players once again prepare to battle through 24 holes of amazing golf.

The 2017 Memorial Championship Wraps Up With Some Familiar Faces

Paul found success at the 2017 Memorial Championship

The final rounds at Discraft’s 2017 Memorial Championship started off with an unexpected change to the women’s lead card, thus shifting the final battle from three players to four. Madison Walker had to withdraw from the last day due to illness, and Jessica Weese was bumped up to the 9:56 am tee time. The morning was cool with very little breeze, and a handful of strokes separated all four women from each other fairly evenly.


Despite the best efforts of Catrina Allen, Sarah Hokum, and Weese, Paige Pierce had a solid game plan that she executed flawlessly to take home the win. Knowing her own skill set was key to her success: “[On] certain holes I felt confident on my putts even at the water, it just really depended on the shot at hand. If I walked up to a putt and didn’t feel confident I layed up before I could think about it, and if I did I went with it.”


Mental Games Seemed To Improve All Around


After speaking with several of the top finishing women after Saturday’s round, it was clear that the pros are really hitting their stride and feeling confident now that the 2017 tour is kicking into high gear. With a solid final round at -3, Val Jenkins moved into third place to finish the week strong. “It felt really great today, I’m happy to finish the tournament on a good note like this. It all came together today,” Jenkins said.


Through hole nine, Pierce had only carded one bogey, and it was clear to many that she was going to do whatever it took to maintain her lead. While this left some others visibly frustrated, Hokum kept a smile on her face and made jokes throughout the round. “Your mental game has so much to do with it; my goal was to stay positive the whole weekend and I did that. I ended up 2nd but I really did meet all of the goals I was trying to meet,” Sarah said when asked about her demeanor today.


Drama In The Men’s Final Round


The men’s lead card teed off at 2:00 pm with warm weather and close scores. Topping the leaderboard was Ricky Wysocki, Simon Lizotte, Nate Sexton, and four-time Memorial champion Paul McBeth. With all four players knowing this course like the backs of their hands, it was anyone’s game. Paul began his charge when he gained one stroke on Wysocki and Sexton, and two strokes on Lizotte after hole one. From there, the momentum continued.


None of the men on the top card had major missteps - all told, only four bogeys were carded amongst the group. Pars and birdies were traded back and forth between all of them, but consistency for Paul made the difference: “Out on these courses you can get on streaks, I was able to keep it under control.”


Knowing that Wysocki can push Paul to go harder, McBeth was happy with how he strategized his final round, saying “I was never trailing which made it a lot easier, never got behind. I always had a cushion on Ricky because he could explode at any time.”




Wins Were Well Earned


Coming down to the wire, McBeth was able to secure first place with a one-stroke lead over Simon, and Paige held her ground to finish 13 strokes ahead of second place. We love the show that all of the players put on for us this week! The three courses used for The Memorial Championship offer great variety and truly test player’s skills and resolve.


Good luck to everyone continuing the tour and competing in Texas in the next few weeks!

Rolling Through Vista Del Camino - Moving Day at The Memorial

Vista Del Camino was host to round three of The Memorial Championship in Scottsdale, Arizona. After the conclusion of Thursday’s action, a scoring error discovered by members of the media led to an investigation by the PDGA. Ricky Wysocki was subsequently issued a two stroke penalty for his three separate scoring discrepancies at the Fiesta Lakes Golf Course in Mesa. These critical errors seemed to swing Rick’s momentum onto his card mates Simon Lizotte and Paul McBeth, two of the players seeing the most success on moving day. Simon carded a 50 and Paul threw just 49 shots on the par 60 course.


In bogey-free fashion to tie McBeth’s hot round was none other than Nate Sexton, who made his way onto the lead card for today’s final round at Fountain Hills. Eagle McMahon also shot hot yesterday, birding more than half of the holes at Vista, however with a bogey on hole 10 and a triple bogey on hole 8, he was only able to manage a 54. This leaves him in a tie for seventh place with Dave Feldberg, six strokes behind McBeth and Lizotte, who are tied for first. Ricky Wysocki had an uncharacteristic round missing 15% of his inside the circle putts and he had the highest OB rate out of the top three cards. This pushes him back into a tie for third with Nate Sexton, three strokes behind the co-leaders.


A surprisingly small gallery found the muggy Vista Del Camino track yesterday, the longest of the three courses used in this year’s Memorial Championship. But it’s thanks to Vista’s length that we got to see some of the biggest throws this week as well as many players making excellent use of backhand rollers across the courses’ long open fairways. There were some adjustments to the course from years past, with the addition of new mandatories as well as the upgraded Disc Golf Pro Tour Baskets.


The pros seemed to hit their stride at Vista, the sixth course they’ve played in eight days. With just two days off after The Gentlemen's Club Challenge in Las Vegas last week, these last few days are shaping up to be quite the endurance test. All that’s left is one more round at Fountain Hills, where we have had numerous historical finishes in years past. Will this year bring the drama we’ve come to expect from The Memorial final round? We can’t wait to find out.

Round 2 of The Memorial Brings Tension You Could Cut With A Knife

Dustin Keegan ended his round on a solid note with a birdie on hole 18.

If you looked at everyone’s faces at the conclusion of yesterday’s round at Fiesta Lakes you’d see one thing in common: despair. Although the weather in Mesa was sunny and bright, an unpredictable wind caused players to throw their game plans out the window and fight just to get through the course. The mood of the day was somber and tense, as this almost pitch-and-putt style course put player’s mental games to the test with random spit outs and roll aways.


That’s not to say that hot rounds weren’t present, as Paul McBeth and Ricky Wysocki both carded 12 down, putting them on today’s lead card. The ladies also saw some action with Madison Walker shooting an unofficial 1001 rated performance, and Paige Pierce moving ahead of the pack with a five stroke lead on second place. Despite these successes, most players were disappointed with their day, and are looking forward to redemption at Vista del Camino.


Not Such A Gimmie Course After All


When you walk up to Fiesta Lakes, it seems like a course that most anyone would excel at. With two holes under 200’ and the bulk of the rest viewed as easy birdies by professional players, one would think that our top pros would completely shred. Yet with some strong and unstable wind, just the opposite happened. Dude ambassador Dustin Keegan commented that his card had a tough time navigating certain holes because of the weather conditions: “We just spent most of our energy trying to figure out what the wind was doing because it was spinning 360, so within a person’s shot it could change completely. Most of that is just mental strength to try to stay inside yourself and not let it affect you, and figure out your best shot possible.”


Aside from uncontrollable weather, the layout of the course fooled players into thinking they wouldn’t have a tough time carding two’s left and right. With it being one of his home courses, Paul Ulibarri felt the pressure yesterday to execute every shot as best as he could. “It’s that type of course where, like I said, one mistake is so huge. The holes are so gettable that if you mess up somebody else is getting it. There’s all kinds of stroke separations; I think everybody’s kind of on edge,” he said. While he put in a solid performance and carded a respectable -7, he still felt like he could have played better.


Tomorrow Is Another Day


For those who didn’t perform as they wished, players got to rest their head last night knowing that tomorrow will bring new opportunities. Struggling in particular on hole 10, Zoe AnDyke had to look deep within herself to maintain composure after carding a 10 on this par 3. “I took a 10 and I turned around and I 2’ed right after it. I had an 8 stroke swing in two holes, and that’s unheard of,” Zoe said.


With Vista del Camino boasting the longest total footage out of the three this tournament, Zoe feels confident about her upcoming performance today: “I do need to put a little extra on tomorrow, I gotta dig deeper because I need to lick my wounds from what happened today. I also need to play smart and even maybe more conservative at some points, and then I need to look at the points where I could go ahead and be a little bit gutsy.”


It seems that many of the players look forward to their rounds at Fountain Hills and Vista del Camino far more than the one at Fiesta Lakes, so much so that they wish the format would be changed. Ulibarri shared with us his thoughts on the matter: “My opinion has always been that the pros here should always just play three to four rounds at Vista. I think that’s more [of] a gallery friendly [course] and kind of more of a professional course for the top players in the game.”


Keegan also echoed Paul’s sentiments about Vista saying, “I kinda wish we played twice at Vista. This course is not quite up to NT caliber in my opinion with 4 holes under 200 feet.” He went on to suggest that in future years, it might serve players better to scale back the amount of courses played during The Memorial Championship: “It’s hard to learn 3 courses. I feel sorry for the people [where] this is their first time and they’re coming from Vegas; they had two days to learn 3 courses and it rained both of those days! It wasn’t really that forgiving for them.”


Ending on a positive note, we love how Zoe described her mindset for today’s round: “I have control over my confidence.” Today’s forecast brings the hottest weather of the tournament so far, and hopefully we’ll see some hot rounds this moving day.

Coming off a rather lackluster performance in Las Vegas last week, yesterday’s opening round at The Memorial brought the fire we’re used to seeing from disc golf’s top players. With a feature card showcasing Eagle McMahon, Ricky Wysocki, Paul McBeth, and Simon Lizotte, spectators knew they were in for a show.


Yesterday’s gallery was larger than what we usually see on day one at most events, pointing to the popularity and success of this spectacular event. The weather was warm, the breeze was just strong enough to affect disc selection, and the race was on after just 18 holes at Fountain Hills.


The Competition Is Palpable


For many of the pro men, it seemed that the four rounds at The Gentlemen’s Club Challenge were just warm-ups. The first event of the year allows them to work out their off-season kinks and prepares them for the intense pace of the year’s tour. It only took a handful of holes yesterday to feel the mood in the air - everyone wants to win.


The first six holes at Fountain Hills were fairly uneventful, save for a few moments. Lizotte started hole one with a lone bogey, and the disappointment on his face was clear. You could tell he was determined to fix the mistakes he made at GCC, which landed him a 16th place finish. With this laser focus, he went on to birdie eleven of the next fourteen holes. Only on hole 16 did he card another bogey, and after a strong finish of two birdies, he found himself with an impressive round of -11.


Changes With The Wind


Through hole seven, only two bogeys total were carded between the four players. Spectators got to see the steady and impressive golf that these four are known to bring to the table. As the wind picked up, things began to get interesting. Very uncharacteristic for such a talented pro, McBeth found himself getting back to back bogeys before finishing the front nine. Keeping his mental game strong, Paul came back with a vengeance and hit the cage not once but twice during his drives on holes 12 and 14.

 

It was around this time that we were able to catch up with KJ Nybo, as he had finished his round and at that point was sitting in the top position at -10. Not letting the major climate change get to him, Nybo’s first US round of 2017 was smooth and solid. He finished strong on Wednesday by carding five birdies in a row on the last five holes of the course. His plan for this week? “The wind can change so I’m going to adjust to all that, but mostly I got everything written down. I’m gonna stick to that.” KJ is well-known for plotting out each hole and writing down his plan of attack. So far it’s served him well.


Flashbacks To The Aussie Open


As the men closed in on the final handful of holes, it was clear that Eagle and Ricky were in contention for the top of their card. They almost seemed to be channeling their final round from January’s Aussie Open, as they were seen trading birdies and pars back and forth. The real difference that put Eagle ahead? An absolute park job on hole 18, giving McMahon a strong finish and tying for first along with Lizotte and Nate Sexton.


Today’s top card will feature Dude ambassadors Simon and Eagle, Sexton, as well as Cale Leiviska who secured the fourth spot in the group with a -10.


The weather this week looks to be beautiful and we’re expecting to see some exciting golf here in Arizona!

No Surprises In The 2017 GCC Finish - Slow And Steady Wins The Race

The final round of this year’s Gentlemen’s Club Challenge included some household names on both the men’s and women’s lead cards. As usual, the cream rises to the top in the game of disc golf, and competing on what has been called the most challenging course at Wildhorse Golf Club, the Innova layout created the perfect landscape for some exciting shots.

 

Sunday’s rounds began with both Paige Pierce and Ricky Wysocki leading by at least a handful of strokes each. All that was really needed from either of them was to play safe and steady, and to walk in their victories. As veterans of the game with countless wins under their belts, both of them stuck to their game plans and were rewarded as champions.


A Fivesome To Lead


Yesterday’s MPO lead card held five exceptional players and exhibited some aggressive pressure when it came to who was taking first place. Many will say that going into this final round, the real race was between Ricky Wysocki and Paul McBeth. The remaining three men, Jeremy Koling, Eagle McMahon, and JohnE McCray were just far enough off of the lead to be in true contention.

 

Despite starting a handful of strokes behind, McBeth wanted the win badly, and believed he could surpass Wysocki: “I knew from the beginning that I had a chance but I had to convert all 18 drives in order to make that happen. I did for most of them; for some of them I went a little too hard and some of them were just a little too short. But I never felt like I was out of it at any point.” Even with an eagle on hole 7 and an ace on hole 13, Paul finished the round in second place, having closed the gap to only two strokes.


Dude ambassador Eagle McMahon put together a very solid round, and with only one bogey and numerous birdies, he was able to secure the number three spot. We also saw consistent and steady golf from JohnE McCray, who chose to play in the open field rather than masters for this event. Yesterday he shot an even round, and just squeaked into fourth ahead of a three-way tie for fifth place.


Unfortunately, today was not Jeremy Koling’s day, despite having a solid game plan and great attitude after Saturday’s round. He couldn’t quite convert his drives and ended up taking a double bogey on hole 14 after a missed putt rolled outside of the circle. Big Jerm’s performance pushed him down to 11th place.


Pierce And Wysocki Are Two For Two


Coming fresh off wins at the Aussie Open last month, both Paige Pierce and Ricky Wysocki have created exceptional momentum with the start of their 2017 touring season. During Sunday’s round, Pierce could relax and have fun, playing smart shots that allowed her to take the win. It was obvious that Catrina Allen wanted to dominate, as she unofficially shot over a 1000 rated round, but it just wasn’t quite enough to take the lead.


There’s no doubt that Wysocki was feeling the pressure from Paul, as they often battle back and forth during final rounds. By hitting his ace, McBeth was able to close the gap and come closer to Ricky’s lead, but a strong mental game kept Wysocki in check: “ It was a great shot, but I couldn’t really let it rattle me. I had two choices: to either let it rattle me or to keep on focusing even more after that. I chose to focus and I’m glad I did.”


With The Memorial starting in only a few days, players are feeding off of this weekend’s energy and carrying it into what is one of the most prestigious events of the year. Having spent his offseason in Arizona, Wysocki is really going to give it his all. “I’m looking to have a good performance, I don’t think I’ve had a top five finish there in a while. I’m looking forward to starting the Pro Tour off strong,” he said.


He’ll have some tough competition from McBeth, who seems to be desiring some closure despite wins in previous years: “I’ll be ready, I’m excited. I don’t feel like I’ve had a complete tournament there yet with the four rounds. Even though I’ve won it a few times, I still don’t feel like I’ve put [it] together.”


We look forward to watching our Dude ambassadors compete this week at The 2017 Memorial and wish everyone luck!

GCC Round 3 Recap - Moving Day Brings Confidence And Excitement

Saturday morning started with players hoping the wind would stay at bay, as many saw their scores improve dramatically as the weather conditions changed. Competing on the Adidas TERREX course yesterday, it seems that both the MPO and FPO fields had some rollercoaster action. Starting off slow but gaining momentum toward the back nine was the name of moving day’s game.


Round 3 gave the pros a complete perspective of what the Gentlemen’s Club Challenge has to offer, as they have now competed on all three courses. Like the saying goes, you can’t make everyone happy all of the time, and there were varying reviews on which layouts had room for improvement.


Mental Games Came Back Strong


Comfort with their play seems to be slowly building as each day passes, and many players expressed being happier with their rounds on Saturday than on previous days. Dude ambassador Zoe AnDyke saw a distinct difference in her mental game yesterday, noting it was a vast improvement over Friday’s round: “I never let down necessarily but I didn’t throw with heart. I didn’t throw with belief. I just went through the motions. I lost the heart in the middle of the round, and you can see it on my scorecard.”


For those who made the cut, it seems the prevailing attitude is that there’s nothing to lose in the last round. Cameron Messerschmidt played his best round of the three on the Innova course, and is looking forward to seeing how the final round plays out: “[My] game plan is just to go for more things on the Innova course, just try to be more aggressive and get more looks so I can move up the leaderboard.”


A Frame Of Reference For The Courses


Similar to sentiments after Friday’s round, competitors gained a complete perspective on what Las Vegas did right, and where things went amiss. FPO players seemed frustrated with the Innova course; Erika Stinchcomb commented that it’s just too long for her, and AnDyke seemed to echo those thoughts. When asked where the GCC could make changes, she vocalized: “I would say that adjusting the pars to be a little bit more correct [is needed] so that we’re not catering to the top five players in the whole sport.”


On the other hand, this inaugural NT garnered a lot of positive feedback as well. Despite her frustration with the Innova course, Stinchcomb was appreciative of this year’s layout: “These are amazing courses and it’s cool to see the bump of how many more people are here. I think it’s accommodating everyone really well.”


Players Look Ahead To Next Weekend


Despite having one more round to complete the 2017 Gentlemen’s Club Challenge, there’s quite a buzz stirring about next week’s competition at The Memorial. While it and the GCC go hand in hand as the start of every tour season, people seem to be exceptionally excited to play in Arizona.


Feeling confident in his game, Jeremy Koling is particularly excited to be competing again after an illness in Australia kept him from the Aussie Open. “We’re all so happy to be back on tour now. This time of season is always magical to see everyone’s faces and see the excitement in the air,” Koling said.


Many are considering GCC to be a warm-up to the Memorial, so while the pressure is on for some to make some big moves during the final round, others are just happy to be easing back into tour life.


The lead card on Sunday’s round boasts five players, including Dude’s Eagle McMahon who ended Saturday’s round with an eagle on hole 18. You can follow live scoring during today’s event by visiting pdgalive.com.

Scores Improve As Wind Calms Down - Gentlemen’s Club Challenge Round 2 Highlights

Thursday was a tough day for many top players as they carded rounds much higher than anticipated. With a new sense of determination, competitors came into round 2 with the mindset of playing safe and smart. Conservative golf became the theme of the day rather than players putting on the show we’re used to seeing. All in all, Dude’s ambassadors had solid scores and mixed feedback for Vegas’s inaugural NT.


A change in weather helped a great deal as the wind had calmed down considerably by Friday morning. The men and women open fields completed round 2 on the Innova course, which boasts lengthy par 3’s and a decent amount of par 4’s along with more water hazards than the other two layouts. Avoiding OB and keeping a positive attitude helped players with their mental game, as prolonged backups of over 45 minutes occurred several times.


The Ladies Focus on Smart Golf


While performances improved yesterday over round 1’s action, the pro women’s cards saw a more concerted effort to avoid repeating past mistakes. Dude ambassador Melodie Bailey noted a change in her mental game, attributing her steady progression to slowing down: “The reason I got my 5’s was because I didn’t quite take the time. I did that ‘I don’t feel ready but I’m just gonna go anyway’ shot.”


Similar sentiments were echoed from Paige Pierce and Tina Stanaitis, who found themselves out of bounds more than they would have hoped for. Their game plans for moving day? “Play it safe no matter what, even if I have to take off 100’ or something like that, just whatever I have to do to stay in bounds,” says Pierce.


Dude Men Plan To Fire On All Cylinders


Saturday’s round on the Adidas TERREX course promises to bring smoother sailing for some of our ambassadors. After recovering from a lengthy rehabilitation, Simon Lizotte is approaching the GCC with a realistic goal: “I’m not expecting much of myself right now, I’m just coming back after 8 months of not throwing, so angles are slightly off, timing is slightly off; being slightly off on these courses can hurt.” His mindset for tomorrow? “Keep smiling. Stay warm and keep smiling.”


A similar story can be said of Gregg Barsby, who is playing his first Gentlemen’s Club Challenge in six years. Hoping to get fully in the groove by day three, Barsby says: “I haven’t really been able to get into the zone all the way. I’m throwing the disc pretty well, I’m just trying to find some fluidity and consistency.” Barsby is currently sitting at 3 over par after two rounds.


How Is Vegas Living Up To Its NT Status?


Having experienced two rounds so far with the inaugural National Tour title, Gentlemen’s Club Challenge players seemed to settle in one of two camps when it comes to how the tournament is playing out. Ever the optimist, Paul McBeth had nothing but good things to say about the 2017 GCC noting, “I think it was a long time coming for them. It’s always been an NT quality type of event.”


Although others weren’t completely disappointed, there was some constructive criticism to be found. “The only thing I didn’t really dig was [that] there’s no water jugs out on the course,” said first time GCC competitor and Dude ambassador Kona Panis. About half way through her round yesterday she ran out of water, and would have liked the option to refill.


Several grumblings were also heard regarding the condition of many of the tee pads, and extreme back-ups created frustration for most players. Despite these challenges, tournament director Jeff Jacquart kept an open mind: “Right after the round the TD asked what they should fix for tomorrow, so they’re very receptive to critiques and feedback,” said Paige Pierce.


It’s Moving Day!


Day three promises to entertain, as players are focused on tightening up their mental game and making their rounds count. The men’s lead card features Dude’s own Eagle McMahon, while Jessica Weese will be on the ladies chase card. As long as the wind stays at bay we should see some real movers and shakers as we enter into the second half of the 2017 Gentlemen’s Club Challenge.

Gentlemen's Club Challenge Opening Day - Where Have All The Good Vibes Gone?

The first National Tour event of 2017 promised excitement as many players crawled out of hibernation to visit Las Vegas, Nevada. While several handfuls of pros headed down under for last month’s Aussie Open, the GCC drew exponentially more players as disc golf’s first event seeing a sponsorship by Adidas TERREX.

We could observe the thrill building across all aspects of social media, as some players arrived here up to a week early to practice all three courses at the Wildhorse Golf Club. Videos on Instagram and status updates on Facebook predicted the GCC would be full of good moods and hopeful performances.


The Tides Quickly Turned


Opening day brought plenty of sunshine, but high winds during each card seemed to blow in a different story from the positivity we had envisioned. Both FPO and MPO groups played the Discgolfvalues.com course, which sports a good amount of holes with treacherous OB. With an average hole length of 390’ it seemed like a safe bet that top names and big arms would dominate today’s round.

Early in the morning, many of the ladies seemed to have a hard time converting their drives into any meaningful ground. Over half of the pro women played rounds unofficially rated below their current PDGA rating, and hole-by-hole scoring shows a shockingly minimal amount of birdies. Emerging from the pack was none other than Paige Pierce, with Dude’s own Melodie Bailey, Zoe Andyke, and Jessica Weese following closely behind.

Frustration For The Men’s Feature Card

With a tee time close to 2:00pm, the men’s lead card was composed of a group of men that we can count on to put on a show. Dude had a great showing with two of our ambassadors on this card, but as each hole played out, we quickly saw disappointed faces.

Back from a lengthy hiatus, Simon Lizotte appeared to dial back his power a bit while sporting a knee brace. Although his drives were still jaw droppingly long, he had a tough time getting his putting in sync. He cashed a large putt on hole 13 and was able to birdie a third of the course, yet it was obvious things just weren’t clicking to his liking.

Young gun Eagle McMahon went into the GCC feeling more confident in his play than he has in years past, yet described his round as “shabby.” Noting that he practiced this course least, he said today was “not a terrible start but not ideal.”

Perhaps most despondent was Philo Brathwaite, who used humor to try to push through his round. After seeing a birdie on hole 1, it took him 13 more holes before seeing another deuce. Upon sinking hole 14’s putt, he threw his arms up in the air and cheered, garnering a good laugh from the gallery.

Just about the only player on the lead card who wasn’t frustrated with his performance was Ricky Wysocki, who shot an unofficial 1064. With only one bogey the entire round, his focus and drive served him well to pull into the lead after day one.


What Could Today Hold In Store?

With the winds looking a bit lighter, today's rounds could see a little more smiles. Open players will be competing on the Innova course, where an intense about of OB will be awaiting them. Several holes top out at over 700 feet, allowing these players to air out their big guns. We look forward to watching the action and are cheering on our Dude ambassadors who are here this week!

Blending Disc Golf And A Good Time - We Present Mr Gregg Barsby

Blending Disc Golf And A Good Time - We Present Mr Gregg Barsby


If you’re on the course and you hear someone having the time of their life, chances are that person is Gregg Barsby. Having perhaps the most fun out of anyone during a tournament, his high energy and positive attitude bring a breath of fresh air to the sport of disc golf. While down under for the 2017 Aussie Open, we spoke with Gregg about his thoughts on Dude and advice he has for touring players.


Embodying The Dude Spirit

The attitude of Dude seems to go hand in hand with the spirit of Barsby, and our partnership just makes sense. “Being a Dude ambassador to me means to really represent not only the company and the clothing brand but also just kind of a way of life,” he said. He places value on being easy going and open to anyone that he meets along the way. It’s always an opportunity for friendships and connections, he believes.

Describing disc golf outreach as “spreading the good word,” he appreciates that Dude is setting a standard for apparel as well as the entire industry, noting that they support touring professionals and really understand what their clothing needs are on and off the course. Gregg’s favorite Dude items are the Disc Dacs and the shorts, and knowing first hand how high quality they are says: “Those two trump the competition when it comes down to it. There’s nothing that really comes close in my opinion.”

He hopes that in 2017 there will be a few more items to choose from, but really just thinks Dude will continue to build upon the solid foundation they’ve worked to achieve.

What Makes For A Successful Tour?

Barsby promotes solid planning as a fundamental part of his tour. He should know - it’s his 15th touring season. For both pros and ams hitting the road, he offers this sage wisdom: “My advice would be to make sure you know your game really well and make sure you have an adequate amount of discs that are backups, because you can lose discs at every event. If you’re only relying on a few, when those are gone your game’s gone with it.”

Although he’s quite social and thanks his friends for being an integral part of making a successful tour, Gregg also points to the solo aspect of touring. It’s important for him to have a sense of self-sufficiency, and he strongly suggests to “[get] all your ducks in a line before you get out there.” Since it can be hard to coordinate so many people’s schedules, Barsby says you should have your own schedule set up and not rely on someone else’s.

Tour life is a grind, and during his off season, Gregg likes to let his body and mind rest a bit. He loves being home for the holidays to see his friends and family. 2017 will bring a packed schedule for him, with first time visits to both Norway and Iceland.

A Few Additional Thoughts

It’s always fun to find out what shots players like to throw, and we got a great answer from Gregg: “any of them that go in!” In reality though, he is a big fan of rollers, finding that while they are unpredictable for others, he says it’s not a gamble for him.

Another fun fact? If Gregg wasn’t a touring pro, he sees himself involved in the music industry or working in a fabrication shop. “I have a passion for welding,” he says.

If you see Gregg during the tour this year, go up and say hello to him! He’s such a bright light of positivity on the course, and we at Dude really appreciate having him as part of our team.

Making The Dream A Reality - Going On Tour With Disc Golf

DUDE Clothing is excited to release a snapshot into the life of a touring pro by documenting our 2016 US Disc Golf Tour. The videos aim to give insight into all aspects of the touring life, including driving, playing, working, social activities, more working, more playing and even a few more social activities.

The tour centres around CEO Chris Finn as he travels across 45 states in 7 months. His journey covered around 30,000 driving miles and what’s more, around 50,000 air miles while transiting from Australia to Los Angeles and over to Europe for the European Open.

Tour life includes more than just competing and driving to the next event. For those who have never been on tour before, you’ll gain insight into what a day in the life of a touring pro looks like.

In 2016 we have attempted to capture a little of the life, but mostly you’re going to see some highlights of the DUDE Stealth truck and its inhabitants. Joining us on this epic adventure was Chris’s family, including, his wife Leslie, his two kids Ethan and Adelina, and “Momma” Dude, as well as some other notable characters. Jordan Wheeler was on board with this being his first tour of the US as a working touring pro, and we also saw the likes of seasoned athletes such as Gregg Barsby and Philo Braithwaite.

Along the way you’ll meet some of the other ambassadors of disc golf as the adventure crosses numerous state borders and tests our resolve in some varying conditions.

All in all, it was a fantastic journey and an incredible way to see the country.We hope aspiring disc golfers can get a better idea of what tour life is all about and possibly envision themselves on tour someday. It’s quite a challenge to leave your “normal” existence, embark upon this journey, and to live a different life.

For many touring pros, mapping out their lodging options is almost as big of a challenge as figuring out what events they are going to play in. For us, we had the ability to take our beds with us in the massive Stealth trailer. Daily activities certainly become more communal when you’re staying in such close quarters, and everything from meal time to clean up is shared.

The tour becomes your home away from home, and little things like a fully stocked kitchen to look through or a full closet of clothes aren’t always available. For a pro player, it’s crucial that what they put in their bodies will help them to perform to their highest level. While it’s tempting to eat fast food because of the convenience, eating freshly prepared foods as often as possible is essential. That’s not to say we didn’t throw a few indulgences into the mix!

Because our tour was so long and spanned so many states and different climates, we had to be prepared for anything! Packing comfortable clothing to compete in was key; luckily we know some people who make amazing disc golf apparel. When we’re off the course, we wanted to be comfortable, so bringing nice casual clothing and a few sets of shoes seemed to work out just fine.

Our adventure required us to have two main states of mind at all times: we’re here to have fun and experience everything the US has to offer, and we’re here to work and perform as best as we can. There’s definitely a time and a place for each of these ideas, and many times the two blend seamlessly together as we’re on the road.

Our videos make it seem like tour is just fun and games, and while it is, there are some high highs and some low lows. Coming off a great showing at an event makes you feel like you’re on top of the world, and having a few bad rounds can make the drive to the next stop all that much more grueling.


With so much sitting and logging thousands road miles, it’s important that practicing and training still come into play. While it’s true that the tournaments themselves are like the best practice there is, it’s still important to hit a practice basket and get some cardio in when you can.

Our tour gave us another insight into what a touring pro experiences during their year: working. While we’d all love to be able to cover our expenses by our tournament winnings alone, sometimes that’s not always feasible. At DUDE, we obviously rely on the sales of our clothing to keep our efforts going. We got to vend at tons of events and sell at fly marts across the country. Not only does it bring in some cash, but you get the opportunity to socialize with tons of people!

Are you going on tour? Be prepared to drive more than you’ve driven in your life! Be ready to walk, a lot. It’s a toss up as to whether you spend more time walking, standing, and playing disc golf versus sitting and driving. You will get flat tires. Your vehicle will break down. You might have plans to arrive at a course four days ahead of time to get some practice rounds in, only to experience setbacks on the road and barely make it in time to play. It’s these unknowns that makes tour-life a challenge, but impromptu mini golf and bonding with your mates certainly balances the scales.

Most importantly, savour the experience of being on tour. Try not to have expectations and take each day as it comes. Our 2016 journey was truly a once in a lifetime experience, and being able to have friends, family, and colleagues join us was something we’ll never forget.

It takes a dedicated and passionate person to grind day in and day out, and to put themselves in the midst of the most talented players our sport has, just to pursue their goals and live the dream. We hope you enjoy what our life on tour looked like and hope to see you on the road!

We hope you enjoy this 9 video series, please share, like comment and most of all, support the pro Ambassadors whenever you can.

Get Acquainted With Everyone’s Favourite Vegan Disc Golfer - Eagle McMahon

A lot of disc golfers are incredibly intense during a tournament, not only when playing, but also off the course to maintain their “gameday” mindset. Discmania’s Eagle McMahon is a notable exception to the rule, always trying to make people laugh or chatting it up with everyone during his down time. We recently spoke with Eagle to hear about his plans for the 2017 season, as well as get his advice on touring and thoughts about Dude.


He’s Only Going To Get Better


Eagle had a great year in 2016, placing within the top ten for all but two of the 30 events he played. He demonstrated an exceptional level of consistency and his hard work truly paid off. He excitedly shared with us that his wins at Disc Dash For Cash as well as the Piney Woods Open were major highlights for him, and of course his 4th place finish at USDGC was a great way to wrap up his tour.


During this offseason, Eagle is really focusing on staying in shape, eating healthy, and continuing to throw to maintain his impressive form and skill. When asked what he’s most looking forward to in 2017, he answered USDGC, because….revenge.” There’s no doubt about it - we are going to see some epic golf during that event.


He’s really looking forward to playing rounds particularly with Ricky Wysocki or Paul McBeth, noting that it means he’s probably on the top card. “It really elevates my game to the highest level possible” says McMahon.


Why He’s With Dude


It’s no question that Dude’s quality of clothing is exceptional, but for Eagle, being a Dude Ambassador means that he’s putting himself in the public eye and associating his name with a company he believes in. The clothing “allows me to get maximum potential out of every shot on the course,” Eagle says, which is why he’s such a proponent of Dude’s products. In fact, his Disc Dacs lasted him an entire year and they still look brand new!


In 2017, Eagle is really excited to see what Dude has to offer in their hat collection. McMahon’s favorite colour is blue, and he’s really looking forward to being able to wear more blue Dude clothing this year.


Words Of Wisdom For Pros and Ams Alike


Eagle is no stranger to tour life, and for anyone embarking on their first tour this year, he recommends keeping your focus on the game. Any distractions in your personal life will mess with your ability to be successful on the course, and Eagle warns that it “will make it tough to play at a high level.”


If you aren’t quite at the pro level yet, but want to be involved in growing the sport, do what you can to put yourself out there. From volunteering at events, running a clinic, or designing your club’s new logo, even the smallest task can help your disc golf community.


We are really looking forward to watching Eagle’s success during his 2017 season. We are so honoured to have him representing the Dude brand and thank him for being such a great ambassador!

A True Inspiration For Women Disc Golfers - Chatting With Kona Panis

Featured:LadiesInspireTechHoodie

As Dude’s youngest female Ambassador, Colorado’s Kona Panis is making a name for herself in the disc golf world. Her level of dedication and exceptional talent have propelled her to the top of many scorecards, and she’s really looking forward to her first touring season. We took some time to talk with her about her involvement with Dude and what 2017 holds in store for her.


Why Dude?


Many sports clothing lines don’t pay attention to the fine details of fitting a woman’s body like Dude does. The way we design our ladies’ wear is second to none, and Kona really appreciates how well the clothing fits her. She doesn’t have to mess with things being too baggy or tight; instead, they stretch with her to accommodate a wide range of motion.


For Kona, wearing Dude “shows people that we’re not just messing around, we’re professional athletes.” It elevates the game to “show the sport is to be taken seriously.” While she loves wearing her hoodie, Panis raved to us about the Ladies Tracky Dacs. She layers them with shorts on cool mornings, and is able to remove them easily once the weather heats up.


What 2017 Holds In Store


This year will be Kona’s first touring year, and she is really excited for what’s to come. She’s going into it on a strong note; 2016 brought her a total of four 4th place wins, and a huge advanced win at the 303 Open.


For Kona, The Memorial and Beaver State Fling are on her priority list. She’s heard amazing things about Milo McIver, the beautiful yet challenging course where BSF is held each year. Fountain Hills is also a special place in her heart, as it was there that she competed in her first big tournament of her career.


We asked Kona what she was anticipating from her tour, and she noted that “keeping a good mindset might be hard if you had a bad round.” She’s also well aware of budgeting so that she can travel to each event.


Practice Makes Perfect


A lot of pros tend to take time off in the winter to rest and give their bodies a break, but not Kona. She has no offseason, and is spending her time practicing and working out using videos sent to her from fellow player Hannah Croke. “I practice putt twice a day and am working on my form,” Panis says. It’s this kind of dedication to mastering the game that inspires us all to work a little harder!


One aspect of her game that hardly needs practice is Kona’s backhand. With confidence, she states she has “perfected it for herself,” and anyone who has seen her throw knows she’s right! It’s her favourite shot to throw and we can see why.


Dude Clothing is proud to have Kona Panis as one of our Ambassadors. We take pride in supporting men and women players equally, and wish her luck in her 2017 season!

The artwork for the poly mesh foam trucker was to create a one off collector's item in the desert and flora colours.  

The Aussie Open runs during Australia Day, and the hottest month of the calendar, a cap is essential, and Dude design team have captured everything that represents Australia during this time.

"We Hear You" Sale

"We have listened to feedback from disc golfers– we heard you love Dude and what we stand for, but we also heard you want lower prices – so, we’ve reduced them to make it easier for you to get into Dude."

 

(These prices not available with other discount codes)

For much of 2016, Chief Dude, Chris Finn has been on the road with his family in the huge 40’ Dude Van. He’s attended over 2 dozen major disc golf tournaments, traveling nearly 26,000 miles through 30 states and talked to thousands of disc golfers. All with the support of the Dude team back in Australia.

Whilst it is a great chance to sell Dude gear, and he has sold a heap, it’s also a listening tour, listening to feedback from thousands of interested fans who have visited the Dude tent to talk to Chris. Two themes came through consistently; “we love the Dude gear and what you are doing for the game of disc golf. We love the style quality and design of the Dude gear”. But “your prices are too high. We’d love to buy, but can’t afford to”.

We are keen for disc golfers to have the choice of quality gear, designed especially for their game, with large pockets, stretch fabrics, high collars for added sun protection and a range of other innovations that will make Dude the most sought after apparel for disc golf.

So, we are reducing our prices to guarantee more people can access Dude. What will stay the same though is the Dude high quality, attention to detail, and dedication to bringing the best gear possible to the game. We believe disc golfers deserve nothing less.

Dude Silver Jacket for 2016 Pro Tour Winners

Dude Silver Jacket

 

When the history of the Disc Golf Pro Tour is written in decades to come, the Dude Silver Trophy Jacket is sure to feature. This year’s inaugural winners, Paul McBeth and Catrina Allen could well be still smiling too.

 Paul McBeth and Catrina Allen - proud winners of the Dude silver jacket

It's no mean feat to win a Pro Tour Championship. You are up against the best in the world, and then, if you are the best in the world, everyone's out to knock you off your pedestal. So hats off to McBeth and Allen for a wonderful display of disc golf to reach the finals and to walk away with the historic wins.

The Dude Pro Tour silver winners jacket is inspired by the US Masters Golfing green jacket, presented to the winner of arguably the most prestigious and well known of golf games, held in April each year at the Augusta National Golf Club. One of the first ever jackets presented to the 1934 winner Horton Smith  was auctioned in 2013 and fetched over $682,000 . Will McBeth and Allen’s jacket be equally valued in 60 years’ time, when disc golf is played in every country in the world, featuring in Olympics, world champions are earning millions and tournaments feature in prime time news.

The US Masters green jacket is actually the club members jacket and the winner receives a jacket as a way of welcoming him into the club for the year of his win. Dudes silver jacket also welcomes Paul and Catrina into a very prestigious inner circle as winners of the inaugural 2016 Disc Golf Pro Tour. Dude means mate or friend and the Dude brand seeks to embrace all players as a collective family in this great sport of disc golf.

Dude is the official apparel supplier to the Disc Golf Pro Tour, so it was an easy and obvious decision to create a silver jacket modeled on Dudes signature piece, the Tech Caddy Jacket.  Designed with unique and fastidious attention to detail to support a disc golfer in wet and cold conditions.  The large side pockets, which hold up to 6 discs, can be stowed and kept completely dry.

It is hoped that the silver jacket will be as sought after as the Masters green jacket in years to come, when the history of the game is written.

Technical threads designed with Disc Sports in mind


Dude Clothing’s Pro Polo and Pro Shorts are durable and designed with subtle touches that make them ready for the course or the field.

 

Disclosure: Ultiworld Disc Golf was compensated for reviewing this product, and purchases via some of the links below help support the site. All opinions are those of the author, who was given free product samples for review. The review was not subject to approval by DUDE Clothing.

 

These days, depending on where you’re from or where you’re at, the word dude is widely used as a laid-back greeting for acknowledging our friends, as well as informally referencing others. But jump into your time machine and travel back to the late 1800s, and you’ll find that “dude” had an entirely different meaning altogether. Before its redefined evolution through surf culture slang, “dude” primarily meant a person who dressed in an extremely fashionable manner, one who paid particular attention to how they appeared in the presence of others.

Fast forward quite a few decades, and there’s a new definition of dude evolving in the disc golf and Ultimate scene. DUDE Clothing (Down Under Disc Evolution) is committed to applying their own take on high quality and stylish disc golf-specific clothing that should appeal to everyone from beginners to accomplished world champions.

Chris Finn, the dude behind Dude, has been playing disc sports since he was 11 years old and has competed all over the world. Through his years of experience, and together with a team of professional garment designers, Dude Clothing has developed a range of high quality and distinctive clothing that is especially suited to disc.

I was fortunate to be the recipient of several of Dude Clothing’s technical and professional level pieces to test and put through the paces at my local disc golf course. True to the Dude Clothing philosophy, their threads did not disappoint.

The men’s Pro Polo is a modern take on the traditional polo shirt. Thanks in part to the Evol-Dry fabric, the shirt is lightweight and does a great job of wicking away sweat and keeping you cool when the course starts to heat up. There are some well thought out features throughout the shirt, including rubberized printing on the shoulders, which is there to help grip your disc golf backpack straps, and a taller collar to help protect your neck from the sun. The Pro Polo kept me comfortable and cool, all while looking good.

Coupled with the shirt were a pair of men’s Pro Shorts. Again, very lightweight and comfortable, these rugged shorts stood up to sharp, pointy sticks when playing out of the rough without flinching. At one point, I deliberately tried to get them to snag on some thorny palm fronds, but no such luck. Toughness and comfort are incredibly important when playing long tournament rounds, and these shorts are easily up for the challenge. The one disappointment I had with the Pro Shorts is there are no snaps to attach the 100% microfiber Dude Tech Towel, which comes ready to snap onto other shorts and pants in the Dude lineup. It’s a small quibble, but for the price I felt like they could’ve included a snap to keep the towel attached.

One of the most impressive and intelligently designed pieces I received from Dude was the men’s Tech Arms shirt. This technical shirt will once again keep you cool on the course with its Evol-Dry fabric and keep your arms warmed up with form-fitting compression sleeves, something that will help during those chilly morning warm-ups or those days where a jacket may be too bulky and hot. Keep in mind when buying this shirt, though, it is a slim, tapered fit from shoulders to waist. I’m 6’1” with a 32” waist and an athletic (albeit skinny) build, and while the shirt did fit comfortably through the shoulders and chest, it was still tight around my waist. Those with a bigger waistline may be disappointed with the fit. Make no mistake, though: With well thought out features like an incorporated button loop to help keep the shirt tucked into your shorts or pants to keep from riding up, and reflective accents with Dude’s signature “boomerang” graphics, this technical shirt is an excellent piece of equipment.

All in all, Dude is definitely raising the level of technical and exciting disc golf apparel. Couple that with the fact that they are making clothes that have appeal to both men and women, they are pushing the envelope for clothing design. And sure, while you could maybe find similar clothing at a slightly lower price point, guaranteed you won’t find the level of disc golf-specific thought and design going into those clothes. At that level, I can certainly appreciate what Dude Clothing is doing to help grow the sport, and to that I say, “Dude, you’re looking good!”

DUDE Steps up to Help St. Jude

Discraft Ledgestone Insurance Open

Peoria, Monday, August 15, 2016

 

The moment Chris Finn saw the opportunity to help St. Jude, he jumped on it. That was a year ago at the inaugural PDGA St. Jude Charity event. This year, Finn and his Australian disc golf apparel company named DUDE again answered the call to raise money for St. Jude via the St. Jude Charity event. So it should come as no surprise that when Finn heard that the Ledgestone Insurance Open presented by Discraft was aiming to raise $30,000 for St. Jude that he again stepped up.

In an effort to help the tournament get to the $30,000 mark, tournament staff decided to offer up the final spot on the day 1 feature card. For a $400 donation to St. Jude, one lucky (and charitable) player would get the opportunity of a lifetime; a round with Paul McBeth, Nate Doss and Cale Leiviska. Not only is the round with some of the world's best, but it is going to be braodcast live via SmashboxxTV and recorded for post round coverage as well.

As soon as Chris Finn heard about this opportunity to round out the feature card and that it was to raise money for St. Jude, he, like he always has, stepped to the plate. "I'd like to wear a different DUDE shirt on every hole and then auction them off with the proceeds going to St. Jude," said Finn. On behalf of the Ledgestone staff, the sport of disc golf and St. Jude, we say THANK YOU.

Shirts worn on even holes will be used in our silent auction on site (Sunday at Lake Eureka) and those worn on odd holes will be auctioned off online with more details to come. Keep an eye on the Ledgestone Insurance Open Facebook page for more details.

DUDE is the official apparel partner of the Disc Golf Pro Tour and Disc Golf World Tour. Please be sure to like @DUDE on Facebook and visit dudeclothing.com to hear their story and to buy your official DGPT apparel.

Dude Ladies Boomer Tee Review

MY TAKE ON THE DUDE LADIES BOOMER TEE

By Michele Ramon

 

I first spotted a boomer tee on Chris Finn at the RED WHITE AND BOOOM event in Dayton, OHIO.  This shirt was not your ordinary tee shirt my any means.  It has a high quality fabric, mixed with design functionality to be like no other tee out there!

My Scorecard:


Appearance 10

The ladies boomer tee has a lower neckline or a scoop neck.  It is a flattering fitted tee and shaped to show off your curves.  The cap sleeves is stylish and the split side appears to be for greater movement with the tee. It's a great feminine looking or sexy tee shirt!

Design 10+

What amazes me the most with the ladies boomer is the hidden Unique Dude boomerang shaped towel feature in the tee shirt.  It is a mini micro towel stitched under the tee shirt.  It's quite handy for cleaning or wiping off your discs, sunglasses and iphones or whatever needs a touch up.  This feature is good for any lifestyle on and off the course, your literally ready for any adventure life takes you. I just love the boomerang stitch!

Selection 10

There is four colors to choose for the ladies boomer tee:  Black, Grey, White, Aqua. Dude offers standard basic colors but also a different aqua color too. The Aqua is most beautiful color and fresh looking!

Construction 10

The ladies boomer is a wicking breathable fabric.  It's fabric is 85% polyester and 15% cotton.  It dries fast in fact faster than cotton and does not retain odors. It's fresh material to wear to keep clean and dry all day.

PRICE $39.99USD

Price reflects the high quality of the product. It's worth it!

After seeing the functionality of the ladies boomer tee and the high fabric - I don't want to wear any other tee shirt other than a Dude Boomer tee! I will be rocking the boomer tee.

 

Cheers

Dude Clothing - Quality for Disc Golf

A DISC GOLFERS TAKE ON DUDE CLOTHING

21 July 2016

 

IF IT’S QUALITY YOU WANT, IT’S QUALITY YOU WILL GET!

 

So I have been following DUDE for some time now and finely brook down and purchased a Pro-Polo during the 4th of July sale. My anticipation was palatable as I exhausted my family with my unending trips to the mailbox and relentlessly checking the tracking number in optimistic blindness that USPS was wrong and my beloved package would arrive sooner than scheduled. I was also on vacation during this time and developed an irrational fear that someone would become keen to the awesomeness that resided inside the otherwise frumpy looking package. After returning from vacation I found nothing but a drab emptiness inside my mailbox and started to fear that my inevitable rendezvous with the ultimate DUDE Disc Golf apparel was not meant to be. Then after two weeks of agony the sun broke through the clouds, birds chirped in harmony, aces were hit all across this great land and all was right with the world, for my package had arrived.   

As I gathered friends and family to partake in the celebratory unveiling of majesty that lies inside this manila envelope, I hesitate, take a deep breath and carefully cut open the vessel that has protected my bounty for the last two weeks. I reach inside, my fingers make contact with the supple expertly woven 100% polyester Evol-Dry Fabric. Chills run through my body.  Someone from the crowd shouts “show us, we can’t take it anymore!” So I remove the polo and hold it high above my head like baby Simba being presented to all the creatures of his land. The gasps were so great it felt as if all the air had been sucked from the room. One person fainted, others bowed; I also had to fight back the tears of joy and wonderment.  The blinding radiance of the red and black Pro Polo brought a Zen like calm to the crowd and an overwhelming need to hit the course. 

The days tick on from that great unveiling, but the excitement continues. The fabrics breath-ability allows a gentle breeze to penetrate and cool the skin. The flexibility of the Polo provides my torso and shoulders the unrestricted movement necessary to launch a disc down the fairway or stretch around obstacles. My anticipation was not unfounded. This is not just another Polo it is a Disc Golf Polo.

 

Thanks for a great product.

Dude Pro Polo Review

A Dude’s Pro Polo is meant to look good, and feel good, so you can play well on and off the course.  It is the perfect shirt for the active disc golfer who is a perfectionist with quality, detail, performance, and the leader with style against the competition.  This shirt will give notice that a serious and styling disc golfer is onsite!

Appearance 10

 The Pro Polo is a masterpiece and branded with the Dude printed logo on the chest.  The shirt is shaped with bright highlight piping for quality fit.  It Features a lightweight, breathable, high quality fabric with a two piece self stand up high cut collar for extra sun protection.  The boomerang yoke is a contrasting element. The contrasting colors is very appealing to the eye!

 Design 10+

 Each Dude Clothing item has a unique design feature for functionality.  This shirt features reflective and rubberized shoulder print for grip of backpack allowing comfort and safety.  It actually grips your bag.

The designer states, “Our unique and specially designed 2 piece collar which extends to protect the neck. A slanted contrast placket, slim fit to the body shape, hi lo hem with contrast taped side splits for ease of movement, sophisticated and functional using wicking, breathable fabric, which does not fade or loose shape. all with the Dude signature boomerang shaped back yoke.”

Designed with detail and function is outstanding!

Selection 10

 DUDE Pro Polos offers four different color selections: Black/Orange, Grey/Aqua, Aqua/Grey, and Red/Black.

 The color combination selection is a broad range for anyone’s preference.  The black with orange is more of the traditional Dude look within their line.

 Construction 10

The Dude Pro Polo’s Fabric: 100% Polyester.  It is enhanced to keep you dry for comfort while playing. It’s super light and it’s like you barely have a shirt on. A great technical performance shirt that will deliver outstanding comfort!

 Disc golf players deserve and want the best!  Dude clothes are built to last the rigors of the game, won’t shrink and lose shape and are designed not to fade quickly. Dude represents that with best quality product on the market!

 PRICE HIGH $49.99USD

 Prices reflect the high quality and worth the money!

 

TEST

 I have been wearing one of the DUDE Pro Polo’s for a month now.  Let’s forget the specs on it right now and consider what my body and mind says about the way it feels on me.  I love this polo.  It feels light  on my body, and it feels great on me too!  Even thought the color of mine is black and trimmed in orange, it is NOT hot in the strong hot summer days.  It is cool.  It feels good on my body and looks good too.  I can tell from the feel of the fabric that the material is strong.  It is not flimsy.  When I wear it, I feel well dressed.  When I look in the mirror I am proud of what I see.  I plan on getting more in different colors.  There is nothing about these clothes that disappoint me.  DUDE, you have done well.  Thank you for your products. I’m glad I found you and bought from you.

DUDE NEW 2016 RANGE ARRIVES SOON

The new 2016 GLOBAL range is about to launch,  and to say our design TEAM  is excited is an understatement. They have been working so hard on the new range. Months spent designing, sourcing fabrics, overseeing production. With Chris Finn, in the field, testing the products mercilessly putting them through the extreme rigours on the road, touring and competing. Now, finally the delivery. It’s been an exhaustive but extremely creative journey, but according to THE TEAM,  will be worth the wait.

The 2016 range has built on the fundamental  pieces that are becoming classic, core Dude items like Pro Shorts, Tech Tees, Tech Arms, and the hugely sort after, Tech Jacket.  We are adding a pallet of new colours, and new designs that are guaranteed to stand out from the crowd. . Key among these are our new Disc Dacs. Great name to match a great product. These long trousers are made in a lightweight stretch fabric that has never been used before. A Dude Exclusive, The Design Team, actually specified the fabric and  had it made especially for the Dude Disc Dacs.  We are  predicting these Dacs will go way beyond the disc golf field and become a must have piece for every travellers wardrobe.  A real game changer. 

Complimenting the clothing, a full range of coloured caps, and trucker styles, two of which recognise our  sponsored players Eagle McMahon and Simon Lizotte, all come in flat or curved brim, extremely high quality with one size fitting most. Dude’s exclusive Easy Fit caps, have an elastication and come in 2 sizes.

The new range arrives late May and is expected to be on the Dude website early June. Diarise to check it out. We’ll also broadcast the release on social media.

Dude - Official Clothing Supplier to 2016 Disc Golf Pro Tour

Dude – Official Clothing Supplier to the 2016 Pro Tour

When the Dude Clothing 40’ van rolls into town, heads turn. And turn they should, for the Dude van has been instrumental in putting Dude on the map at disc golf tournaments this season. Not only is Dude on the map for its new range of clothing specially designed for Disc Golf, they are also official clothing suppliers for the 2016 Disc Golf Pro Tour.

 

 

Chief Dude and Aussie disc golf champion, Chris Finn has put his hand up to support the Pro Tour with a great range of clothing that anyone playing in the Pro Tour would be proud to wear. “When it came to the opportunity to be involved with such a well run program, it was a no brainer” said Finn. “We are excited about the development of disc sports and really keen to see the game grow”.

Every sport has its own line of clothing and now with Dudes involvement, so too has disc golf. And not before time. It’s a sign of the growing maturity of the game and can only be good for it.

The Dude van and Chris Finn and his team will be at all the Pro Tour tournaments promoting and selling the usual Dude range as well as some really high quality co-branded tops, shorts and caps made specially for the 2016 Pro Tour. “Some of this, especially the caps are sure to become collectors items in years to come” says Finn. “Our designer has gone to incredible lengths to respond to the special needs of the game, with high quality fabrics, and design elements that only apply to disc sports. Large pockets for mini discs, side pockets for easy access to score card and pencil, lightweight 4 way stretch fabrics, some of which have never been seen before”.

“The response from the disc golf world to our new range has been phenomenal” says Finn. “We have been around for a number of years, but this year is our big break with the new range and partnership with the Pro Tour. We are getting great support from players and supporters at all levels of the game, who see only benefits to having a clothing range specific to disc sports”

Dude origins are firmly based in Australia, because Finn is an Aussie and an Australian disc golf champion. He’s been playing since he was 11 and is instrumental in the games development down under. But, says Finn “the major centres for disc golf are in the US and Europe, so it’s great to take an Aussie brand to the world”.

Be sure to visit the Dude store and van at the next Pro Tour tournament, say “Gidday Dude” to Chris and his team and don’t pass on the chance to pick up some great Pro Tour gear.

DUDE Supports Amateur Championships at Bowling Green Kentucky

The DUDE, Chris Finn, just back from a brief tour in the US has inked a deal for DUDE Clothing to support the Amateur Championships at Bowling Green in Kentucky, just 100km from the famous city of Nashville. For those fans of the Everley Brothers, the city is the inspiration for their song “Bowling Green” and boasts at least 10 Disc Golf courses, all of which will be used for the championships.

Amateur Championships at Bowling Green 

The Amateur Championship at Bowling Green, held annually in April (this year April 22-24) is one of the largest amateur disc golf tournaments in the US and attracts over 900 players and 2000 spectators.

Players and spectators will have a chance to check out the latest DUDE range of shorts, polos, caps, hats and other threads including official clothing of the Disc Golf World Tour. Friday Fly Mart for all vendors is a huge attraction and will enable all sponsors to present their wares to players and DUDE will be present.

 Current Aussie Champion the DUDE Chris Finn will be setting up and floating around town seeing how Disc Golf is thriving throughout the region.

 “I’m really looking forward to seeing the AMS get it on and it will be my first spectator tournament in the US, something I’m really looking forward to, though I’ll be sure to get a throw in with some locals if time permits. Getting among the players and hearing their stories, hopes and dreams is a real part of DUDE’s journey in 2016.”
