Second Half #6
Trinity Links, Lockport, IL


TEES
18 Holes Par 54
Short Tees
 
CONDITIONS
The night started out at around 88 degrees with the dew point in the high sixties and the wind coming in from the SSW at around 7mph. Temps came down by the end of the night to around 78 degrees but the dew point remained high. It was a muggy night but a great night for disc golf.

NOTES
• Trinity Links has come a long way these last few years. A huge THANK YOU goes out to all the guys who have busted their ass working on this course. There’s been a  lot of blood, sweat, tears and heart put into making this course great. I’m just glad to say it’s one of our home courses.

• Once again The Swamps of Trinity ate many discs, but at least no one fell in this time. The rakes definitely got a workout.

• Thanks guys for letting us use the Trinity Links club house for registration. It was nice to stay in a cooled area when it’s brutal out.

• Team Cortisone comes up with a huge win in the Pro/Adv division. Steve “Fern” Forneris and Kris “Big Hutt” Hutter completely annihilate the field by a massive four strokes. They shot an incredible round of -38 (-16) to easily take the win. These guys have both missed extensive amount of time this year due to injury but last they couldn’t miss. This might be a course record.

• Chris “Topher” Roberts & Marc “Markie” Borowski shoot an incredible round of 42 (-12) to claim the first place finish in the Am/Nov division. These guys were on fire from the start.

• Don’t forget tomorrow is Fotoshop Friday!
The Olympic Weightlifters Struggle!

• Shout out to Justin Duckmanton for donating a Destroyer for a ctp. Whoever won the disc it is at the Trinity Shed. The Ctp was left out and Leo is checking today to see who one.

• Shout to the taco lady for feeding us!
 
• Shout out to Scott Coyne on his ace on hole #1 which was worth $270 and it was also a $42 ctp hole.
