Bring it on, apparently I play better in the rain! :D

Besides, anything that makes it tougher to throw inch perfect 100m thumbers is all good as far as I'm concerned...

That was a general comment, rather than a thinly veiled threat to Mr Webbers chances of beating me at the open.


1) I'm not playing in the open
2) I've only ever beaten him on a round once.
3) That means, by my calculations, that he's better than me. by quite alot.

having said that, I can still throw a thumber further than he can ! :D

I just posted the following report to the Quarry Park site

British Open Championships Report
Saturday, 11 July 2009 20:30
11-12th July - British Open Disc Golf Championships

After the first round on Saturday morning, the reigning European and British Open Champion, Ville Piippo was tied with local course pro Derek Robins, as both players shot 5 under par 49's. In the afternoon, the Finn Piippo surged ahead with a course record 10 under par 44, and now leads Robins by 6 shots, with Denmark's Sinus Frank a further 4 shots back in 3rd place.

In the Amateur Division, french teenager Felix Ban is in the lead, but Coventry's Jesse Denny is hot on his heels. Marco Lehousse from Belgium has yet to find his best form, but still leads the masters division, and looks set to consolidate his position as leader in over 40 division of the European Tour. Jester Wilson scored a hole in one on #5 and Sinus Frank got a hole in one on hole #6.

The course will not be open for public play until the finals are completed, but spectators are welcome to attend the finals which should start at around 14.30 and finish around 16.00.

Hi All,

Thanks for making it a great weekend. Scores are up on PDGA website (http://www.pdga.com/tournament-results?TournID=8427) and some pics from the event are up at Sandblaggers.com (Clicky!).

My thanks to Jesse Denny for the loan of his camera when mine broke!

Woo Hoo, I got my first 900 + rated competition round. Unfortunately I think that means its time for me to move up :cry:

Thanks to everyone involved in the organisation I had a great weekend, although next time someone else can carry the leaderboard, I can hardly walk this morning.

Did I? Oh. I'm better than I thought! Alright this time I had a 900 + rated round and then didn't choke horribly on the other rounds, so I was consistently medicore instead of one round of mediocrity and 2 of downright rubbish, its an improvement. Come the next ratings update I think the decision to move up will be taken out of my hands.

steve, lets swap. You can choke ins ome int am finals instead of me, and I can flatter to decive at advanced. Hows that sound?

A belated but very well deserved 'thank you' to Duncan and his fabulous team of helpers (Jon, Westy, Sue and Ivan, Ricky H, Del and anyone else I may have forgotten to name-check). The British Open was once again a superbly run event.

Players can sometimes take for granted that a course is so well prepared, that the scorecards are always ready when required and that everything runs smoothly. This is down to excellent planning, preparation and team work and we should all be very grateful to Dunc and the team for putting this effort in for us.

Cheers, Guys.

Nice photos!

from http://picasaweb.google.com/JesseDenny8 ... 5906885202 through the next few you can get a reasonable view on Villi's forehand technique :)
