Kansas City Wide Open 2014

24 Jun

The 2014 Kansas City Wide Open Disc Golf Championships are over. Paul McBeth took Open Pro at Swope Gold Course and way at the other end of the card, over at Blue Valley Park, I took Pro Senior Grandmasters. The courses were tough and long with big elevation changes. It was hot as Missouri in Summer, but our card had really wonderful players all three days. The first two days Mike Maness and I  played with the Pro Women Masters and on the final day we played with two Open Pro women.

Bottom row from left Pro Masters Women winner Peg Berry, Sheila Kirkham (third place), and Douglas MacIlroy (the trophy is ceramic, very heavy and shaped like a disc. Cool.)

 

One tournament down and one to go. Next weekend I will bang my head on two courses for two days in Jefferson City, Missouri, at the Mid-America Open and see what happens.

Now it’s off to find the Disc Golf World store in downtown K.C. and see what swag I can find to jam into the plane for the flight back to Hawaii when all this fun is over.

 

Aloha,

 

Doug

    Didn’t I always say you were a master? 🙂

    Hey, congratulations!!! And your are so right: Missouri is HOT in the summer. I know because I’m in Southern Illinois, and pretty much whatever they get, we get. It’s been so hot here this past week that one friend described it as having air so hot and heavy with humidity that she could hardly breathe when she went outside — and she’s very healthy, with no lung problems of any kind. So be careful out there. Keep yourself well hydrated. Hope you head back to Hawaii with such a weight of trophies that you have to pay extra to carry them on the plane.

    I didn’t know they considered 44-50 as a Senior. Congratulations, Doug! Now we need a little video next time. Good Luck, my friend.

    Welcome to the Midwest, Doug! Hope you’re having a delightful stay despite the weather, which isn’t as bad as it often is this time of year. I also hope you’ve managed to stay out of the rain for the most part.

    Let those discs fly!

    Dear Doug,

    With all that swag and the ceramic disc trophy I hope your plane can get off the ground.

    All my best for the next tournament.

    Shalom and GLAKA,

    Rochelle
