San Diego Disc Golf Loses a Gentle Giant

March 1, 2014

Our local disc golf community lost one of it’s most-liked young disc golfers this week. Daniel Boe, an up-and-coming MA1 player, was killed early Friday morning in a single-car accident on Interstate 8. Daniel was on his way back home after competing in the Memorial disc golf tournament in Scottsdale, AZ. Daniel was alone in his SUV when he lost control and crashed.

Daniel was a fixture at North County disc golf events, calling Kit Carson Park as his disc golf home. His strong play on the course coupled with his affable personality made Daniel a universally-admired player on the local disc golf scene. Daniel was a powerful thrower, but the best shot in his arsenal was probably his Yeti Aviar putter, which he would use to sink puts from all distances. His strong play earned him a spot on SDSF’s sponsored team, and he closed out the 2013 season with a second-place finish at the SoCal Amateur Disc Golf Championships.

Details on memorial services for Daniel were not known at the time of this writing. As more information becomes available it will be posted on the Aces web page and Facebook page. In the meantime we will all keep Daniel, his family and loved ones in our thoughts and prayers.

    Kit Carson lost one of its best players. Im happy to have tagged along with him on many rounds and had the chance to get to know him as a great person on and off the course.
