Well you’ve probably heard about some of it by now, but it was an exciting start to the 2022 season for Team DGA. We had three players cash at the Las Vegas Challenge, and a couple others representing elsewhere. Read on to see how it went down!
Catrina Allen didn’t waste any time getting used to a new bag of discs and decided to just win her first event of 2022 with a dramatic birdie on the last hole of the event. Some say it’s the archer and not the arrows, but imagine what can happen when you give the greatest archer the best arrows 🙂 Cat’s taking a break from playing Memorial but will still be there rooting on her teammates, then it’s WACO up next!
Noah Meintsma came out of the gates hot at LVC and didn’t slow down, finishing 17th place in a stacked MPO field. He averaged 1033 across his four rounds, with a scorching 1075-rated round two. Noah will be carrying a good amount of cash from the event and a lot of momentum into the Memorial this week!
Shasta Criss played in the Non-DGPT Las Vegas Challenge and got 6th Place MP40. Shasta said, “These courses set the stage for some great disc golf. I had moments of great golf, however left way too many strokes on the course this go around. I finished 6th in MP40. My Hurricanes worked overtime on these long courses. Time to dial it in here in Arizona!” Good luck at Memorial, Shasta.
Dandridge Marsh played a in the 28th Annual Vintage Cup and got 2nd Place MA1. He said, “After 2 months off due to injury, it felt great to get out and compete again, going up against the young guns as I near my 45th birthday. Finished the final round by parking the last two holes with my FF Hellfire to get 2nd place by a stroke.”
Ben Llena, who in his roundup photo appears to have a small dog as his caddy, played the Prodigy Disc Golf Fling and took 2nd Place MPO. In an effort to conserve regular punctuation marks, Ben tripled up on “!” and said, “Great day on the course! Love being able to smash drives on these golf course layouts! My Hypercanes were so dependable in any wind today!”
Great work, Team DGA!
