February 5, 2020 by Bennett Wineka in Recap with 0 comments
It’s been more than three months since the Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship in Charlotte, and while some of the world takes a break from tournament play during the “offseason,” high-level golf is still being played.
Time to check in on some of the game’s top players to see what they’ve been up to.
Catrina Allen: Apparently she wasn’t even planning on playing, but Allen got a nice W at the Maricopa Open to start her year.
Jennifer Allen: Besides a couple lower tier wins to close out 2019, Allen has added Shelly Sharpe Memorial and Battle at the Fountain wins in 2020.
Jessica Weese: Won convincingly at the Chain Hawk Open
Lisa Fajkus: A 975-rated round closed out her Staddle the Brazos win.
Rebecca Cox: A December trip to Tupelo Bay resulted in a win.
Valerie Mandujano: Picked up a couple B-tiers at the end of last year, including the BATADGA Finals.
Callie McMorran: Has been playing a lot of second fiddle to Jennifer Allen recently, but did get first at the Mesa City Championship to go with her 2019 Phoenix Ladies Open victory.
Ellen Widboom: Widboom played 45(!) events last year and finished with wins at the South Florida Open, Moccasin Lake Open, and Hub City Halloween Open among others.
Heather Young: A new contract and she’s 1-for-1 in 2020, winning the Pasture Open.
Kona Panis: A 2019 Inland Empire Championship and an Ice Bowl in 2020 are both quality victories.
Tina Oakley: Not always playing but usually at a course, Oakley got a win at the Fairhope Jubilee.
Adam Hammes: Off to a humming start in 2020 with two impressive wins down in Arizona at the Shelly Sharpe Memorial and Maricopa Open.
Chris Dickerson: Closed out 2019 with solid wins at South Florida Open, Belch’n Turkey, and All Hyzer’s Eve. A slow start to the new year by his own standards was rectified by a win at the Pasture Open,
Garrett Gurthie: A win at the Chain Hawk Open over Dickerson, and played in the Open division with siblings Evan and Alex.

Gregg Barsby: A stop-off in Texas netted a BATADGA Tour Championship for the Champ.

Dan Hastings: Starting 2020 strong with wins at the King’s Cup and Mooky’s Cup Not Yours over solid fields.
Cameron Messerschmidt: The newly-signed Gateway pro had a nice win over Calvin Heimburg at the Moccasin Lake Open.

Cameron Colglazier: An 1100+ rated round helped Colglazier to a Fairhope Jubilee victory.

JohnE McCray: Hasn’t played much but did win the New World Championship.
Brian Schweberger: Undefeated in five events in 2020 across two divisions, Schweby also had seven wins from October-December.
Austin Hoop: The 1010-rated California finished 2019 with a NorCal Championship and looks to be hitting the road hard in 2020.
Bradley Williams: Does an early Straddle the Brazos win mean more Williams on tour in 2020?
Sias Elmore: A late FLYR Open win in 2019 could be a good omen for 2020.
Colten Montgomery: A 2019 Inland Empire Championship and an Ice Bowl in 2020 are both quality victories.
Matt Dollar: Several area Dollar wins were highlighted by the Doc Holiday Shoot Out.
