The Vic Open is over for another year. This is always a great event on the Australian Disc Golf Tour with competitors from all over Australia and some from overseas. This year there were 65 competitors.
Evelyn was the only junior girl competitor so she decided to play in the FA4 division. It was not easy-going on day one of competition. It was incredibly windy and very challenging, especially on the long fairways driving into 40 km/hr headwinds. Evelyn finished the day in second place behind Caryn Cameron.
The wind was much calmer on day two of the tournament and Evelyn was able to improve on her day one score by nine shots! She played well above her rating and retained her second place position.
Day three was tiring for all. There was wind and rain and it was cold. Evelyn’s group started in the wooded section of the course and unfortunately her discs managed to find many trees and a few prickly Acacia bushes. After just a few holes, Kate had closed the gap between second and third and she and Evelyn battled for the remainder of the round for second place. Leading into the last hole, Evelyn had a one shot lead over Kate. Caryn was way ahead and there was no chance of catching her. It was the longest hole on the course; 333 metres, throwing into a strong headwind and she thought that Kate would surely have the advantage as she can throw much further. Evelyn managed to keep her discs on the fairway however to narrowly hold onto her second place.
This was such a fun tournament. Thank you RPM Discs New Zealand for your continued support and to Geelong Disc Golf, Melbourne Disc Golf and all involved with creating such a great event.
