Saturday's winner - Mike Robinson - 323' ($100)
After having several players throw in the 150'-175' range, Mike showed up. He bought in for an additional 3 throws. 3 of the 4 throws went over 300' easy. The 4th wasn't straight enough, and went ob. There were lots of oooohs and ahhhhs from the people watching him throw. It was truly impressive! No one else threw after that.....
Sunday's winner - Jon Boster - 265' ($91)
Sunday's race looked much tighter. A few players were throwing over 200'. Jon walked up and thumbered his mini out to 240 feet or so, beating the longest throw so far. A couple of throws later, and one player was able to pass him up, forcing him to pay $5 for 3 more throws. On his next throw, Jon threw another thumber out to 265', beating the longest throw so far by about 12'. No one could beat it, so Jon left two throws unused. If you were watching him throw, you got the impression he could have thrown it farther with just a bit more effort.
I have a little bit of video footage from Saturday's long drive competition. Once I get it edited, it'll be put up on the Aces and Chains website.
