Players head out for the start of the 1st round

GMPS#2 is in the books and we got a beautiful day for disc golf at Center Chains DGC in Waterbury Center, VT for the Sap Bucket Open XIII! This is the longest running event at the oldest public course in the state, so taking home a title here means something! Last weekend’s event saw a large field of 80 players compete across 10 different divisions! This GMPS event was also a PDGA C-Tier so we have some round ratings to look at as well. Check them out here: SAP BUCKET PDGA RESULTS. With 2 events in the books, there are also GMPS considerations to review as the early division leaders try to stake their claim on the 2016 series. But first, here are your 2016 winners and field sizes they beat:

  • MPO – Dario Re – 12 person field
  • MPM – Chris Young – 4 person field
  • MPG – Marcos Miller – 5 person field
  • MA1 – Charlier Veysey – 19 person field
  • FA1 – Alex Benson – 4 person field
  • MG1 – Rick Williams – 1 person field
  • MA2 – Jay Stevens – 28 person field
  • FA2 – Emily Kirbach – 4 person field
  • MJ2 – Jamie White – 1 person field
  • MA3 – Garret Worely – 3 person field

GMPS CONSIDERATIONS:

Frist off, let me mention that we have had some great results from players NOT in the GMPS through these first two events. If you don’t see your scores up in the GMPS standings, it most likely means you need to purchase you 2016 GMDGC Membership for your rounds to count in the GMPS. The rule for the GMPS is that the scores from the last 2 events count when you join as a member, so don’t wait if you have a good score out there! For the player’s that are GMDGC members, take a peak at the current current GMPS Standings.

GMPS#3 – QUARRIES THROWNDOWN TOMORROW!

Wait until after the round if you're going swimming!

Tomorrow, Saturday May 28th, GMPS #3 will kick off at the Barre Town Forest and Quarries DGC. This course has evolved and broken in considerably since its inception in 2013 and is now hosting its 2nd GMPS event! We again look to have a robust field full of both Vermonter’s and golfer’s from across New England.

For a full hole-by-hole preview of this event (thanks Andy Powell, for your shockingly thorough forum thread) please check out the Quarries forum thread. There are only a few spots left, and pre-registration is over, so there early if you would like to try to register the morning of! We will report back soon!

Until next time – Keep on dreamweaving those lines.
