Default 2018 Memorial Championship

Keith Murray, the TD, was on Smashboxx last night. Seems like we just did this, but registration is open today for the event and it's filling fast.

They changed the tourney back to old school by removing Fiesta Lakes from the rotation. Now it's just Vista and Fountain again. This has cut the field by a third, so I'm not sure how well this will sit with the players.

For the pro side, I hope that McBeast remains healthy so he can win his 30th Memorial in a row.
Paige Pierce always plays well too, so she'll prolly take FPO.

Without looking it up, I wanna say he's won 5 out of the last 7 years. Jerm and Will won a couple in there. Either way, he does very well at the event.

Good recall. 5/7 since 2011, Jerm and Will are the only other winners.


What place did he get in 2010 (without looking it up!)?

Ugh, that's before I even knew what disc golf was.

I'll just take a stab and say 5th. Didn't Doss win that year? We seem to forget how good of a disc golfer Nate Doss is.

Close! 6th.

In 2010 Feldberg bested Anthon by 3. Philo/Climo tied to round out the podium, finishing 4 behind the Beard.

Didn't Murray say the decision was for the players, though? I'm sure they won't mind the pole outs...
