  2. Simon Lizotte Films TV Segment With Former NFL Star Tedy Bruschi

    This post was updated with Simon Lizotte’s vlog with Tedy Bruschi.

    The disc golf bug has apparently bit former NFL linebacker Tedy Bruschi so hard, he’s enlisted Simon Lizotte to help share the sport for a New England TV audience.

    Bruschi played his entire football career with the New England Patriots, winning several Super Bowls while becoming a fan favorite, and is currently an analyst with ESPN and advisor to the University of Arizona football team. He was filming an episode of “Outside the Fame” with Jayme Parker for the NESN regional sports network when the producers called up Lizotte.

    “The people who sponsored the shoot are into disc golf and made it all happen. Pretty spontaneous thing,” said Lizotte. “I’m gonna be in the NESN segment but it’s mostly just about Tedy and what he does in his free time.”

  3. Portland Open Moves From Blue Lake To Glendoveer

    Continued questions around coronavirus restrictions has caused the Disc Golf Pro Tour to change venues for the upcoming Portland Open. The June tournament was originally scheduled to return to Blue Lake Park, home of the inaugural Portland Open in 2019, but will move to Glendoveer Golf & Tennis for 2021. The 2020 event was canceled due to COVID-19.

    “While we love the Blue Lake course, uncertainty regarding MetroPark’s ability to honor our course reservation due to COVID-19 concerns made it necessary to shift the event to our backup venue at Glendoveer,” said Jeff Spring, DGPT CEO & Director.

    Dustin Keegan has designed a course at Glendoveer with an imposing 11,763-foot, par 66 layout for the men, and a women’s track at par 69 and 10,185 feet. Glendoveer has two 18 hole ball golf courses and Von Ebert Brewing on the property, and has previously hosted events such as Nike Cross Nationals.

    Joining King in booking a ticket to Winthrop was third place finisher Heather Young. Young tied with Macie Walker for third but Walker already earned a spot with her finish at the Jonesboro Open. Second place finisher Catrina Allen previously qualified for the TPWDGC in Las Vegas.

    After playing 15 holes on Wednesday, Jessica Weese withdrew from the Dynamic Discs Open due to back pain before completing the final three holes of her opening round Thursday morning.

    “I decided to let the show go on without me,” said Weese. “There are way to many big events to struggle through this one and never get any time off. This was going to be my 10th to 11th tournament in a row. The last time I did that I got injured in 2016. I didn’t get to play at all that year after playing on my injury.”
    Weese said her back pain stems from driving between last weekend’s Bowling Green Open to get to Emporia with time to practice before the midweek start.

  15. Klein, Aderhold Drop From Dynamic Discs Open

    After taking home a signature win last weekend at the Mid-America Open, a DGPT Silver Series event, Kyle Klein was a late scratch from the Dynamic Discs Open.

    “A time-constrained stretching session caused me to tweak a muscle in my upper back, and limit me to only being able to reach back about half of my usual reach back,” said Klein when announcing his withdrawal. He confirmed to Ultiworld Disc Golf that the injury is minor and he has experienced a similar setback in the past.

    Klein said he should be good after a few days of inactivity and rest, and is planning to play the Challenge at Goat Hill Park DGPT Silver Series event in Oceanside, California next weekend.

    After having to deal with two weather delays through the day, the Open Women’s division had round 1 of the Dynamic Discs Open suspended due to darkness. Play will resume with a shotgun start at 8:30 am Thursday on Jones Gold. Round 2 tee times have not been affected.

  19. Mid-America Open Moves From Harmony Bends Due To Unplayable Course Conditions

    Harmony Bends

    The Disc Golf Pro Tour announced Tuesday that this weekend’s Joe Machens Toyota’s Mid-America Open presented by Discraft would be moving away from the famed Harmony Bends course in Columbia, Missouri to an alternate venue due to unsafe course conditions. Unseasonable winter weather this week and a poor forecast rendered Harmony Bends unplayable. The decision was made by Tournament Director Joseph Douglass and the DGPT.

    The Silver Series event will now be hosted at the Back Course at Albert Oakland Park. Players will have two full days of practice on the new course before the tournament tees off on Friday.

    “We are disappointed that we are unable to play at Harmony Bends, one of the highest rated courses in the world” said DGPT Director & CEO Jeff Spring. “However, we knew this was a possibility and prepared to move forward if this scenario were to arise. We are happy to still be able to offer our competitors the opportunity to play a Silver Series event and earn tour points.”

    Isaac Robinson turned in the round of a lifetime at the Eastbound and Down at Boundary Waters B-tier in Douglasville, Georgia on Sunday.

    During round 1 on the Boundary Waters 1 course, Robinson went a “perfect” 18-under par over 18 holes, carding back-to-back eagles on the par 4 holes 4 and 5. He was 12-under through 10 holes before back-to-back pars on holes 11 and 12. The rest of the way was birdies. The 1092-rated round is Robinson’s highest career rated round, beating his previous best by almost 40 rating points.
