The spring of 2017 has been off to a fantastic start with some great local disc golf tournament action. Wes Campbell, TD for the Eagle Eye Open, has some great things to say about this year’s tournament:
Wow, what another wonderful weekend in Haywood Valley for the 2017 Eagle Eye Open – GSS Event #2! Scores are now posted: http://www.pdga.com/tour/event/31597. Congratulations to 1st Place Pro, David Feldberg for his stellar performance! Hats off to Chris Hamby for his Ace on hole 3 that was worth $110 Ace Fund and $57 CTP! In the Masters Division, Jake Nye made the trip down from Chattanooga to take 1st place! We had a great women’s field in which Jessica Leigh Metz was able to rise to the top of the field of 10 for the win! Also, congratulations to the Am winners Mike Hallworth, Mark Spaugh, Rock Rock H Arnold, Robbie Robinson, and Scott West. I can not say thank you enough to all the volunteers & sponsors! With out these people and companies, this event would not be possible. Thank you everyone!
Austin Lytle, this year’s Pro runner-up had more to say regarding the weekend:
This weekend was nothing short of awesome, at the 2017 Eagle eye open. It started on Saturday where I shot the hot round and course record 52 (-10) on par 62. The next round I found myself on the lead card with world champ, and now! Georgia native, David Feldberg, and my boys from home, Matt Versola and Martin Young, and managed to all stay together After the first day. I had a 2 stroke lead going into Sunday! And then the rain comes.. and doesn’t stop until after the round where Dave had fought his way back to a 1 stroke lead going into the final 9. As Dave said it when we were done, “I haven’t had that much fun playing disc golf ever!” It was epic, awesome, fun, and so adrenaline pumping! I got my stroke back on the first hole and it was a battle all the way to the end, with an 90ft jump putt in the middle and some sweet shots all the way in! In the end, Dave showed me he is a world champ. Hats off to him! He’s a ‘boss’! I love this tournament every year and will be back again next year for the 7th time, With vengeance!
Thank you Wes for hosting another great tournament!
