WEEK 10 - June 6, 2012
First Half #10
The Oaks - Mokena, ILTEES
27 Holes - White Tees - Par 81 CONDITIONS
The temperature to start the round was around 75 with some NE gusts in the teens. The sun was out and it felt great. The temp fell into the mid 60s by the end of the round. A picture perfect night. The course looked great and it was in great shape. Another perfect night for disc golfCOMMENTS
To our experienced Ams that pair up with a beginner. Your guidance towards these players is a major part of the future success of the league. Please be a mentor to these new players and make sure when they leave they feel like they had the coolest time and want to come back. It's great to win but if feels a whole lot better knowing you helped make difference in someones game. You just might be helping the next great player in our area.
After a 4-year hiatus the J-Town Disc Golf Doubles League was back at The Oaks. Thanks to Mary Beth Windberg, Mokena’s Superintendant of Recreation for all of her support and for allowing this to happen. It was great to be back and we are looking forward to having The Oaks on the second half schedule a couple of more times.
The race for the top four spots in each division is coming down to the wire. With only three weeks left in the first half the gaps for the top spots are closing. We have a ton of players jockeying for position. It's going to be tough battle through June 27.
The Fourth of July falls on a Wednesday which would be the first week of the second half. League will be canceled that week and resume on July 11. Go and celebrate with your friends and families.
Cool Ace Stories:
On Andrew Smith’s first throw of the night Andrew hits his first ace of his life. Now that's pretty damn cool. He aced hole 16.
Paul Pazanin aced Hole 12 which was also the CTP for the CFR disc. The cool thing is Paul told me to keep the disc and donate it to Operation J-Town Storm. These packages from home mean the world to our soldiers! Please donate and check out the link for more info.http://jtowndiscgolf.com/SMF1/index.php?topic=616.0

Leo Borowski & Steve Forneris completely destroy the course by shooting an amazing round of 60 (-21). They take the top honors for the night. Now that's a hot round.

Leo gives himself a chance to get back into top four with a late first half surge. Al Hermosillo & Dave Kocuiba shoot a fantastic round of 61 (-20) to take second place out right for the night. They end up taking home 43.50 each and they both make significant jumps in the points standings. Dave is now only one point out of fourth while Al sits at three points out. Taking third place out right for the night were Buddy Lee & Steve Slater. They also shot a fantastic round of 62 (-19) and split 60 bucks. They both keep their hopes a live for the first half and they need a late first half surge to get to at least that fourth spot.TOP THREE

He now moves into sole possession of third place for the first half by three points. Josh DeLucio & Andrew Smith take the second place honors by shooting a very hot round of 64 (-17). They end up taking home $23 each. Andrew keeps his hopes a live for the half and will need a late first half charge to catch the top four. Matt Hotuyec & Darren Terpstra also shoot a very nice round last night. They come in with a 65 (-16) and take the third place honors out right. They end splitting 35 bucks. Nice shooting guys!CTPS
