The third leg of the Legacy Co-op Disc Golf Tournament Series was held Saturday at the Churchbridge Credit Union Disc Golfcourse.
Attracting 18 golfers, and having excellent support from local businesses in providing prizes the day was deemed a huge success for an inaugural tournament.
The open division of the event was played over three rounds of the 12-basket course which was opened to play earlier this year.
When the final putt was made it was Duncan Holness of Broadview, SK. coming out on top with rounds of 42-41-42 on the par-38 course from a three round total of 125.
Yorkton’s Nick Leclerc slotted in second with a 42-44-41 for a total of 127, two strokes back, tied with Churchbridge’s own Rob Gosselin. The pair split second and third money.
Brothers Sebastian Leimhofer and Lukas Leimhofer of Inglis, MB rounded out the top five, with Sebastian 45-44-44 for 133, and Lukas 42-46-47 for 135.
In the 50-plus division, playing only two rounds, Yorkton’s Trevor Lyons topped the field with 42-44 for an 86 total, two strokes up on Doug Kerr, also of Yorkton. He shot a 46-42 88. Karl Leimhofer, of Inglis, MB was third with a 47-46 93.
The Junior Division was topped by Todd Frasier from Churchbridge with a 51-47 for a 98 total.
Hunter Yankee also from Churchbridge was second with a 73-66 for 139.
Sandy Kerr of Yorkton was the top female player with a 51-51, 102.
In the longest drive competition Nick Leclerc had the best toss at 379.5-feet.
The final event in the Legacy Co-op Series will go Sunday at Whitesand Regional Park near Theodore this Sunday.
The Parkland Association of Disc Golf will return to Churchbridge Saturday, Oct. 19, as the course will host the Grain Millers Champion’s Challenge where Wadena’s Mark Kienle will hope to defend his Yorkton Lions Club Trophy in the open division, and win his second champion’s jacket.
