Well, Sunday is here and the Brewster Ridge team has had great success throughout the week promoting the Green Mountain Championship, our 1st PDGA A-Tier event at the Maple Hill Open. I rebounded from a first day 75 to throw 66 & 67 in rounds 2 and 3. While both rounds were rated around 980, I felt like I left a lot of strokes on the course. Low 60s is out there for me if I just clean up those two round a bit.  Though there wasn’t much hope for the cut after the 75 in round 1, I feel encouraged with rounds in the mid-60s. I know that in the future, the low 60s are very doable and I look forward to making another run at it next year.

In other news, I am back on the bag for Steve Brinster, reigning United States Disc Golf Champion. After round three, Steve is on the chase card, sitting 4 strokes back of the leader Jeremy Koling. With 8 players within 4 of the lead, it should be a tremendously exciting final round. My thoughts on Steve’s chances… Steve can go low out here. A round in the 40s wouldn’t surprise anyone, coming from Steve. I believe he is coming in confident and ready to go low, post a number, and see if the lead card can match it. I  also noted Ricky Wysocki’s hot round of 52 from yesterday has many thinking that he could be poised to go low again. Scoring conditions are prime as the wind of Saturday has died down leaving a gorgeously sunny day in the mid-70s. Will Brinster be able to charge back into a winning position or with Jeremy Koling hold off the field and keep his slim lead? A growing crowd of spectators awaits the tee time for the leaders and the excitement to follow.

Brewster Ridge Disc Golf is happy to be a vendor for this great event and is excited for the strong field of pros that is shaping up for our own event, the Green Mountain Championship this September 19th-21st!
