Jared Hilton Memorial Recap - Jun 18th, 2022

Jared Hilton Memorial Recap

There were 135 players this year that came to Lebanon, Missouri for the 12th Annual Jared Hilton Memorial. The courses looked amazing being mowed and groomed by John Shelton’s park maintenance crew and Brad Hilton. Brad, Rollin Clamme, and Brandy Monnahan all worked hard getting the course tournament ready with OB’s marked, signs, water, and canopies put up. A big shout out to all who made everything look great!

There were two pools with nearly a perfect split in numbers. The A pool started out on the Jared Hilton course side of Atchley Park with the B pool starting on the Winfrey course across the street. The weather was near perfect with the first round starting at 9:00. Nearly all groups were done around noon. Hamburgers, hotdogs, and chips were served courtesy of Chris Ryan owner of R & R Heating and Air who flipped the bill, and Pamela Collins for doing the grilling and set up done by Assistant TD by Lindsey Cass. Thank you all so much as it was delicious. The 2nd round was a brutal reminder that we were definitely in summer. The temperatures and humidity soared. Thankfully there was a breeze that was definitely welcomed.

After the round players gathered for the always Amazing JHM Raffle that is largely sponsored by Brad Hilton. Other players also donated items along with The Lebanon Parks & Rec helping to put in a Monkey Trap in for the grand prize. Lots of winners and $1,100 was raised and will be used to fund another course as Brad and I will team with EDGE to find a school wanting/needing a course on their campus! Thank you everyone for supporting the Jared Hilton Memorial as we continue to keep Jared’s memory alive.

Reminder: North Ark Open is postponed until further notice. - May 5th, 2022

As most of you know the North Ark Open was postponed about a month ago due to an accidental double booking. The North Ark College graduation will be happening the same day and because of parking issues they elected to have us change our date. The date has not been determined, but when it has been established we will post it here and on the Disc Golf Monkey FB pages as well as my personal FB page. Sorry for the inconvenience, and believe me I understand the frustration and let down.

Hanna Hills Recap - May 2nd, 2022

The 4th Annual Hanna Hills Open Recap (Try 2)

As many of you know Hanna Hills is a beautiful and challenging course near Fort Leonard Wood in the town of Laquey, MO. The Par 65 course is filled with scenic beauty that displays the gorgeous Ozark Mountain terrain. Trees, rocks, elevation, ponds, short holes, long holes, and so much more make up this paradise. As a bonus to the scenery the owners, Vic and Diana, are simply awesome. You could not have any better hosts! Along with all the above, there are also animals galore: goats, ducks, peacocks, dogs, cats, and an endless amount of birds to be seen if your lucky. Definitely one of my favorite places to be, and it is a privilege to be able to showcase Hanna on my tour.

I want to take a second to thank Vic & Diana for opening their land for us to play this tournament. A big shout out to Jeff Ford owner of Patriots Gold & Silver who was our title sponsor. To parker Asay for coming up with another great logo for discs and shirts, thank you and as always your art skills are over the top! A big thanks to Dynamic Discs for making Parker’s art come to life on the great looking discs and shirts. I also want to thank Andres Flores being the non playing assistant TD (PDGA’s new requirement in 2022 for B tiers and above) who helped with course set up and tear down as well. To Kevin Carder for helping with all of the technology side of the tournament. You are appreciated more than you know! To Michael Bentele for being the best running man (being asked to be all over) to make things run as smooth as possible. I would also like to thank my wife and kiddo for making the trip to help serve food and show their support.

This year Eighty eight players filled up the 9 division field. The day started cool with a crisp bite in the air that made most wear an extra layer of clothing to keep the chill off. Most of the first round was cool, but thankfully the sun was out and warmed things up just enough to make things near perfect for disc golf at Hanna. Mother Nature opened up some added water on holes 1, 2, and 3 that are often water free. Although the water made it even more beautiful, the filled and over flowing ponds made Hanna even tougher.

In between rounds the players were fed a pulled pork sandwich meal that was catered by Red Ox Barbecue. Carl Jackson, the owner, can be found at Axes and O’s in Marshfield, MO Wednesday through Saturday. If you are in the area give Red Ox Barbecue a try!

At the end of the round there was a throw off for the Ace Pot followed by a raffle. Corey Chaney had the winning ticket for the grand prize of
A Spider Trap, but I believe he said someone else was the actual winner. Whoever won it, I hope it helps you lower your scores with the putting practice you will now get in on your new basket!

There were definitely some issues that were mentioned and we have a plan to correct the shortcomings. The PDGA’s strong suggestion for going paperless bit is this time and therefore we will have printed resources taped to the check in table from now on. We will also have Alternate places to look for information about the event despite the multiple face book pages and my web site incase an issue arises as it did this time. Remember that if you ever have any questions or concerns you may call, text, or instant message. It is advised you do this well before the event. We appreciate constructive criticism as we always try to do our best to provide fun, competitive, and smooth running events on our tour.

Recreational Men Division (13 players):
The first and second place finishers distanced them selves from the field as both players kept their scores in single digits. Brian Mason was only one off Trenton Dean’s 65. Trent held off Brian in the second round by two and gave him the win shooting a final score of +6.

The Intermediate division was our largest field with 22 competitors. Josh Hickman demolished the field shooting a -5. Is a “Move Up” in order. With that convincing win I would say there is a good argument for it! Rounding out the top four were Samuel Crump and Ryan Burns finishing tied for 2nd at +2. In 4th just one stroke back (+3) was Brendon Rost.

The MA 50+ had five players competing. John Parsons of Marshall, MO was able to take down 1st by only a stroke over our Title sponsor provider Jeff Ford.

Julie Crouch was the only FA 40+ player. She was able to better her score by one stroke in the second round. We need to find you some competition lady!

There were 7 in the Am 40+ division. Aaron Ulrich made a rare showing and took down a big win shooting a 138 holding off Todd Sander who shot 142 and Jeremy Surratt who finished at 144.

In the Advanced division there were 10 players. Alec Knopf who is on a great run took down the division with a strong -6! Chris Pilarski was second with a -2 score which narrowly held off Barak Barton and Garrett Bacon who tied for 3rd shooting -1.

The MP 50+ division had 6 players. It was quite a battle with there being a 3 way tie with only 6 holes left. Despite great playing by Mitch McClelland, Corey Riley, and Ryan Kanovich, I was able to get my first win in a play off on hole 1 with Ryan. Incredible group of guys and a tough field!

There were 5 Open Women which was definitely awesome to see. It isn’t often that we see a full card of ladies competing at that level around here. Katie Belty, who has been on the road quite a bit lately, said she was on her way to Colorado after this event. She dominated the competition shooting a strong +7 total. Katie came out with a 69 in round one. This gave her a 2 stroke lead over Alexis Kerman, 8 strokes over Lauren Butler & Fresa Jacob’s, and 11 over Millie Cowgill. Katie cruised to an easy win, but the real battle was for 2nd. Lauren, Millie, and Fresa all came back strong shooting 70, 69 and 73. The ladies finished in that order with Alexis having a really tough round and finishing 5th.

The Open division had a great showing with 19 players. Alex Berg started off hot shooting a opening round 57. He then got hotter in the second round shooting a 55 with a final score of -18. Tyler Frank and Zackeriath came back strong in the second round shooting 13 down to tie for 2nd. Taylor Thomas and Cameron Ivey tied for 4th shooting -10

The official scores can be seen here

To all that cashed congratulations. Thank you all for coming and look forward to seeing you at Runnin’ with Squatch 2 at Branson Trails.

Lucky 13 Recap - Mar 12th, 2022

14th Annual Lucky 13 Recap

The 14th Annual Lucky 13 presented by Elephant & Castle lived up to its reputation by being a cold one. Although the meteorologists missed the snow and ice accumulation, they were right on the temps. The morning started out at 12 degrees when I left the house, and start time was near 20. It was definitely uncomfortable and getting warm was near impossible with the 10-12 mph winds. The 2nd round seemed to be more bearable even though the winds picked up some. The sun shining down did help.

There were 91 players that competed in 9 divisions. Nearly 20 players withdrew throughout the week. Most scared off by the local doom & gloom forecast that was a definite Bogey. I think all in attendance would agree that the conditions were much better than they anticipated. The course was set up for 20 holes as it has been for the last few year. I definitely want to thank all those who brought baskets. For fear of missing someone I won’t list, but you know who you are and your efforts are appreciated by all! Thank you.

Lunch was provided by Little Caesar’s Pizza. We are fortunate to have General Manager Zach Pirwitz continue to make this happen each year. Zach also played this year and ended up cashing in his division. Thanks a bunch buddy!

Our title sponsor Elephant & Castle has been doing the title sponsorship for several years now! Sadly Doug Bowen the owner of E&C had to withdraw because of a knee injury. I’m Confident he will be back soon. I speak for all who competed when I say thank you for your financial support, it is greatly appreciated. We also had a new sponsor this year that was given to us by Brett Stofer’s mom. The Permit Shop was a Hole Sponsor. This year when signing up you will now see different ways to help. We thank anyone who sponsors or gives us leads on possible sponsors!

It was awesome having 6 of my 7 team players at this event. It’s been a while since we have had that many at one event. To Kyle, Kevin, Michael, Paul, Dasun and Jake, you are all incredible. Thanks for making everything run so smooth at all our events .

Division Recaps:

Rec Women
Madison Feeback was the only lady in the Women’s Rec division. She shot 169. Thanks for braving the cold and playing!

Rec Men
There were 24 players in the Men’s Rec division. Garret Steelman jumped out on top shooting a 60 that was at least 2 strokes better the rest of the field. His 61 second round, totaling 121 was good enough to hold off a strong charge shooting 60 by Dylan Kramer (124 total) and Joshua Klesner’s 125.

Int Men
18 players competed in the Intermediate division. It was George Flagg, Brett Stofer, and Michael Cory all separated by one at 55, 56, & 57. George held on to take home the 1st place trophy with a -8 total. Matt Williams slid in to the 3 way tie for 2nd shooting a hot 56. Justin Hare and Brett Stofer also finished -3 total to round out the 3 way tie for 2nd.

Am Masters 60+
There were 3 in the MA60+ division. It was definitely the “Bud Man” Brad Hilton’s Show this event. Brad put the thumping on Roger Reid and Jon Parsons shooting 116. I have no doubt that both Roger and Jon will come back strong at the Disc’n for Cheetah’s tournament.

Women’s Am40+
Julie Crouch was the only lady playing in the FA40+. She shot a 151. Appreciate you coming out as well.

Men’s Am40+
There were 6 players in the MA40+ division. Only the top two shot in the fifties. Ray Preznell’s 55 and 57 round was good enough to hold off Darrin Dodson’ 57 and 58. Derred Scheperle finished 3rd taking the last cash spot.

Men’s Adv
The Advanced field scores were solid. So much so that the leading score of the day came from the 16 strong field. Both Billy Rae and Josh Owens came out hot with a pair of 52’s. Billy Rae absolutely smashed the 2nd round shooting the hot round 48 (1029 rated) to take the big “W”. The true battle was for second as Seth Lindeman, Noah Gentry, and Jay Hall shot well, but fell a few short of Josh Owens. Josh Owens first round was the difference in hanging on to second.

Women’s Open
Brandy Monnahan was our only Female player. She shot both rounds in the mid 60’s for a total of 132.

Men’s Open
There were 21 Open players and it was quite a battle. There were 9 spots paid out and all of these finished in double digits. After the first round the players on top were between -9 and -5. An old Monkey managed to shoot the nine under. Derek Green and Allen Heston were only a stick off at -8 and McKenzie was one
off them at -7. The second round ended up being an even tighter race at the top. There was a 3 way tie for first after a stellar come back by Arkansas’ Chris Eads. Eads shot a 49 (1018 rated) second round to put Allen Heston and myself in the tie. Worth noting, Derek Green was part of that tie until the last hole. David Christie, like Eads also had a 49 that moved him way up in the cash.

In the play off, Eads threw left just out of the circle, Heston threw long at circles edge, and I through right outside the circle. We had it surrounded, but none of us could capitalize. On to the second hole, we were all in the circle. Heston missed his putt and Eads and I sank our putts to go to the 3rd hole. Eads went first and threw a near perfect drive landing about 10 or 15 to the left of the bucket. I threw a roller that landed pin high 60 to the right. My putt was wide and Eads sealed the deal with his 2 putt! Congrats to Eads, Heston, and all the other players that cashed. To all my card mates, it was a blast.

As I write these Recaps, I can only look at the scores unless I’m part of the battle. If anyone would like to give me some info. on exciting facts feel free to type something up and shoot it to me after the event. The only reason I could talk more about the Open battle is because I was fortunate to be in it. It was a blast.

Until the Disc’n for Cheetahs at the Dickerson Park Zoo in Springfield, keep them straight and lots of Aces and Deuces to you all! You may register here for the Disc’n for Cheetah’s event:
