Golden Sombrero Standings at the 2/3 Mark
Who’s in the lead in the Golden Sombrero standings after seven events? None other than Redlands TD and co-GS Instigator Bill Maury-Holmes! Bill’s 163 points after playing in four events give him a ten point lead over multi-time GS Champ A.J. Risley. But A.J. will not be playing any more Golden Sombrero events this season, as he will be playing at the Gentleman’s Club Challenge in Las Vegas and the Memorial in Scottsdale. Mark Verrochi could mount a late charge with three events remaining, as he has only played three events so far and is third in the points at 125. Cory Marstellar is two behind Mark at 123 to round out the top four.
But really, there are a whole bunch of disc golfers who still have a shot at this year’s title. That’s because the three remaining events: Wrightwood, Mission Bay and Colina Park could all have large fields, which means big points. Mission Bay in particular has a history of fielding close to 100 players, so Bill better watch his back! Wrightwood may also draw a big crowd after players hear the news that all 27 holes will be available for play (barring a huge snowstorm between now and next Saturday). Remember – your top four point totals count in the standings.
