Highlight Reel: Best Of The MVP Open At Maple Hill

Top shots from the sport's top players and video producers

Maple Hill gives us stunning shots every season, both during play on the course and of the picturesque property. Throughout the inaugural MVP Open this year, SmashboxxTV was on site filming for the Disc Golf Pro TourJomez Productions, and Central Coast Disc Golf have already produced the coverage and highlights below (not including the Harbolt ace), while more rounds full of highlights are coming down the pipeline from Tee Time Disc Golf and Par Save Productions.

Aces

Five aces were loaded into UDisc Live during the tournament and we got two on tape. Both Ricky Wysocki and Trevor Harbolt got theirs on hole 8.

Near Aces

Somehow, we were very close to having even more aces at the MVP Open. Look at Sarah Hokom on hole 5.

Same for Calvin Heimburg, right off the flag.

Throw-Ins

Next to aces, a throw-in always feels good, and crews captured plenty of those.

Matt Dollar was able to grab the only birdie on hole 9 during round one. Only two other players would do the same the rest of the event.

Paige Bjerkaas birdied hole 9 twice, but her par save looked the best.

This is what Paul McBeth starts doing when he’s chasing down a lead. This one really warrants a follow-flight to go along with the signature Slo-mez.

Near Throw-Ins

When you find the perfect line after you leave the tee.

Nate Sexton was definitely planning this skip into the bogey band.

2018 MVP Open – Round 1 – Nate Sexton hole 1

Not only getting out of trouble with a “patent pending” but hitting chains as well for Heimburg.

Just give this to Sexton already, he’s all over the basket.

Park Jobs

A low release grenade shot down a tightly wooded alley? Okay, Eagle. What doesn’t he make look easy?

This is basically a 550-foot shot over a wall. Are we sure we’ve nicknamed the right ‘Mc’ McBeast?

His total score wasn’t great but man Eagle had some pinpoint shots the first round.

Next time you doubt Sarah Hokom has a backhand, watch this on loop for the afternoon.

Watching Dollar thumber golf lines will make your brain explode. He’s got a thumber for every occasion.

This McBeth shot could be described as, “on a rope.”

2018 MVP Open – Round 2 – Paul McBeth hole 7

Who else would you rather see forehand flex hole 13 than Sexton? (Also ground action doesn’t get much better than his — a hope, a skip, and a drop-in putt.)

Hokom probably.

McBeth can recover “patent pending” (at least) as well as Heimburg.

This is not a human line Conrad takes. Throwing over everything used to feel exclusively like a Lizotte thing — not anymore.

Lisa Fajkus is one of the most animated (in a good way) players every weekend. She is pleased with this.

Round Three 2018 MVP Open Lisa Fajkus hole 15

Big Putts

Run it down.

Paul Ulibarri will not be denied his birdie.

2018 MVP Open – Round 3 –  Paul Ulibarri hole 4

Hard to overstate the elevation on Simon Lizotte’s putt.

2018 MVP Open – Round 3 – Simon Lizotte hole 7

A good way to walk off for Lizotte on his home course.

For the second time of the tournament, Fajkus has the best reaction. And let’s be real, if there were awards and a podium for ‘best reactions of the season’ how does Fajkus not sweep that?
