Default Tyyni 2019

(Disclaimer: I am in no way associated with organizers or sponsors of Tyyni)

Tyyni 2019 with numerous side events takes place in Finland June 20-30th.

The MPO field looks strong, with Eagle, Simon, Oakley, and large number of best players from Nordic countries (Seppo and many more) participating. FPO is lacking the top US names as well as Finnish top, so my prediction is that Kristin Tattar will snatch easy win as she has been on an excellent roll lately.

There will be live scoring on Udisc and discgolfmetrix.com, as well as some form of live mobile phone stream , FPO post production coverage and live recap-show featuring Terry Miller.

Really excited to participate for the first time, in MA3 division. All three courses are completely new for me, hopefully I manage to practice the courses a bit before the main event. But in any case it will be fun.

Lots of travel time for a player like Oakley. . first from US to Finland to play the Tyyni. . then back to the US for Great Lakes Open. . and then back to Finland again for the European open just a few weeks later

Why not have the Tyyni and European Open back to back weeks?!

It's easier to tour as a trust fund kid, than it is to rely on actually being good at disc golf and consistently cashing.

I don't expect the Oakleys to actually travel to DGLO, unless they have some magical flight schedule. They have a clinic and doubles event in Oulu on July 3rd.

MPO feature card (McMahon, Lizotte, Oakley, Nissinen) is live: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_bjaFh0vXy4

EDIT: Not really worth watching though, terrible signal.

In terms of Europe the field is pretty stacked. Just because you don't know them doesn't mean the level of play is gonna suck.

they coverage, when not lagging, was a decent watch. Hard to track the discs in flight, but the commentator was on point. The chat was decent too until it got bogged down by the DD cult guys.
