February 5, 2020 by Bennett Wineka in Recap with comments
It’s been more than three months since the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship in Charlotte, and while some of the world takes a break from tournament play during the “offseason,” high-level golf is still being played.
Time to check in on some of the game’s top players to see what they’ve been up to.
Catrina Allen: Apparently she wasn’t even planning on playing, but Allen got a nice W at the Maricopa Open to start her year.
Jessica Weese: Won convincingly at the Chain Hawk Open
Lisa Fajkus: A 975-rated round closed out her Staddle the Brazos win.
Rebecca Cox: A December trip to Tupelo Bay resulted in a win.
Valerie Mandujano: Picked up a couple B-tiers at the end of last year, including the BATADGA Finals.
Heather Young: A new contract and she’s 1-for-1 in 2020, winning the Pasture Open.
Tina Oakley: Not always playing but usually at a course, Oakley got a win at the Fairhope Jubilee.
Chris Dickerson: Closed out 2019 with solid wins at South Florida Open, Belch’n Turkey, and All Hyzer’s Eve. A slow start to the new year by his own standards was rectified by a win at the Pasture Open,
Garrett Gurthie: A win at the Chain Hawk Open over Dickerson, and played in the Open division with siblings Evan and Alex.
Gregg Barsby: A stop-off in Texas netted a BATADGA Tour Championship for the Champ.
Emerson Keith: The Texas Armadillo never stops playing, and he’s got the flex start wins to prove it.He got a good win at the Winter Warmup.
Jeremy Koling: Koling returned to win his fifth Tupelo Bay Open.
Cameron Messerschmidt: The newly-signed Gateway pro had a nice win over Calvin Heimburg at the Moccasin Lake Open.
Cameron Colglazier: An 1100+ rated round helped Colglazier to a Fairhope Jubilee victory.
Scott Withers: Sometimes easy to forget that Withers is rated almost 1040. A win at the 2020 Santiam Open go with three other late season victories from 2019.
Luke Humphries: Did we mention Humphries’ Veterans Park Open W? We should have.
Andrew Presnell: Several late 2019 wins around Missouri for Prez, like the PLAY MO DISC GOLF Tour Championship.
Alex Russell: Top 10 finishes at USDGC and the DGPT Championship led to a November win.
Michael Johansen: Staying sharp with a victory at the Savannah Open.
JohnE McCray: Hasn’t played much but did win the New World Championship.
Brian Schweberger: Undefeated in five events in 2020 across two divisions, Schweby also had seven wins from October-December.
Austin Hoop: The 1010-rated California finished 2019 with a NorCal Championship and looks to be hitting the road hard in 2020.
Bradley Williams: Does an early Straddle the Brazos win mean more Williams on tour in 2020?
Sias Elmore: A late FLYR Open win in 2019 could be a good omen for 2020.
Matt Dollar: Several area Dollar wins were highlighted by the Doc Holiday Shoot Out.
Clint Calvin: Calvin protected his home turf by winning the 2019 Morley Field championship.
