Spring Flinging in San Diego!
This weekend, April 20/21 will be a busy disc golf weekend in San Diego. Saturday brings the Morley Spring Fling tournament to Morley Field – an Am-only, PDGA-sanctioned, SoCal series event. The course will be closed all day Saturday for the tournament. It’s a fantastic event – Snapper always goes all out with the payout and food – the MA1 winner always walks away with a portable basket.
Sunday’s action will be at Kit Carson Park in Escondido. A full field of 80 players will contest the Pro version of the Spring Fling on a stretched out layout. 27 Open Pros will be on hand, including current World Champion Paul McBeth (yeah, the guy with the signature Roc3 and McPro Aviar). Another 27 players have signed up for the “trophy only” option, giving them a chance to measure their skills against the top guns. Spectators are welcome….no, encouraged. There will be a big prize raffle at the end of the day with over 30 prizes, including a portable DGA Mach 5 basket, a portable Innova Traveller basket and lots of discs, shirts and other stuff. There will also be a disc swap/trade going on during lunch and after the 2nd round – bring something tradeworthy and see what others have to swap.
