Hi.

Just wanted to announce some results from the First Ottawa
Open Disc Golf tournament, held last Saturday at Jacques
Cartier Park. There was an excellent turn-out (over 40
players I think...) and the weather was crisp but fine,
with just enough wind for supplementary intrigue.

Congratulations to Claus Reitlingshoefer, with a score
of 123 over 36 holes, finishing in first place. I played in
the "lead group" over the final 18 holes, quite a treat
to be in with a real quality foursome, creating a great
atmosphere for competition and resulting in some first-rate
golf that was also, simply put, good spectatin'

As best as my fatigued mind can recall, here are the
top 10 (men's scores)

1. Claus Reitlingshoefer 123
2. Ken Darcovich 124
3. Paul Holland 130
4. Simon Kaegi 132
5. Roy Germon 135
(I can see that in the top five, the longer
your name, the better the result....)
6. Rod Nicholls 136
6. Ken Lange 136
6. Darren Labrash (?) 136
9. Mike Schofield 138
10 Don Lane 140

Closest to the pin winner (hole 4) Danny Stables
Long Putt contest winner Ken Lange
Birdie Pool winner Paul Holland

Stephanie (sorry, I don't know last name)
was the women's division winner, with a 147.

Thanks to Steve Seabrook for being good
enough to organize the event. I had a
fabulous time, and look forward to many more
such events. A nice wind-up at a pub afterwards,
my pleasure to buy Claus a bucket of Moosehead,
to enhance the taste of his receiving the lovely
Jack Webb (created and donated) trophy.

ps. Supplementary kudos....
Claus and KenL, first two to "par" number 6

Yes, huge kudos to Steve for putting together what was a very enjoyable day of disc golf. The weather was good, the turnout was fantastic, and I think everyone had a great time. The only complaints I heard was a need for drinking water, as well as some sort of food and perhaps other refreshments. Something to think about for next time - does anyone else have any suggestions? All in all, I think the day certainly bodes well for the future of disc golf in Ottawa.

Also, to throw in a couple of additional kudos, I think Darco certainly deserves one for what was obviously some very fine play during the day, particularly his drive on hole 4 in the second round to within 6 feet of the pin, and a fantastic long birdie on number two in that same round. Also, kudos to Darren Labrash for an excellent 2nd round 65, while using an ultrastar for everything but the longest of drives.

Finally, here's my version of the scores... I guess we'll just have to wait for confirmation from the TD before we know what's official (although I know I shot a
135 smile

1. Claus Reitlingshoefer 123
2. Ken Darcovich 124
3. Paul Holland 130
4. Simon Kaegi 132
5. Roy Germon 134
6. Rod Nicholls 135
6. Ken Lange 135
6. ??? 135
9. Mike Schofield 136
10. Darren Labrash 138

I know someone else tied with Rod and
I, but I don't think it was Darren. Anyway, thanks again to everyone who came out, and hope to see you on the course!

KenL

The winner of the 'Women's Division' was Stephanie Chow. Not only did she totally dominate the women's side of things, her placing in the "overall" was certainly top fifteen! She beat out such notables as Steve Ott, Jack Webb, Craig Fielding and Mike Harley. Wow, splendid effort indeed. You look good in 'Plaid' baby!!
