All things come to an end.
At the end of this month, tupelodiscgolf.com will be no more. As my disc golf play and interest transitions to a more casual/social aspect and due to exceedingly rising cost and the effort it takes to maintain the site, I will not be renewing its domain upon renewal.
I posted this possibility on the TDGA Facebook page a few days ago with no one offering interest in maintaining it.
Some aspects of the site will likely move over to msdiscgolf.com, but many of its features, galleries, and history will fade into the oblivion.
The 2020 FWTK replacement Master’s Mini is in the book.
Six brave souls braved lower 90’s heat on Thunderchief for the first round with Ken Cash taking top honors for the Masters with a 58. Austin, from the Water Valley area, took the Elvis CTP with his second shot a few feet from $18’s basket! There are 5 or 6 discs in the lakes around 11, 14, 15 & 17 so if anyone rakes, keep us informed if anything is found! While not the hottest Mississippi weather can offer, it was indeed a hot round!
The second round began soon thereafter on Veterans long pads to long baskets and all “King” holes! Once again, Ken Cash took top honors with a 66 while Austin again took the Elvis CTP with his 2nd shot a mere 25 feet from the #9 King basket! Yes, you read the correctly …. 2nd shot 25 feet form #9 KING! We were playing third shot CTP on that hole. Although, only his 2nd shot, it was surrounded by asphalt and OB, but still close enough to win the CTP! Austin, a non-Master) also shot a 61 for lowest score for the round!
Ken Cash had the overall best score for both rounds and took home the 2010 Elvis disc.
Fun and enjoyable rounds, but this old man won’t be playing many more consecutive rounds of that length!
