University of Essex(Colchester)- Eleven disc golfers formed up at Tee 1 at The University of Essex coming from as far as Croydon and West Norfolk and on this cloudy windy day while Europe's finest were up North at the Battle at Blue Bell Woods vying for the 2016 British Open Trophy. Who will win it today then up at Reboot Disc Golf?
With a steady stream of golfers showing up the 11 players were grouped accordingly and sent off into the winds.
With ever growing excitement for the Croydon Cyclone happening the very next week everybody, even those not lucky enough to nab one the 90 covered spots at Lloyd Park wanted make a good showing in front of their friends.
The winds were constant but Predators and Firebirds weren't seen being pulled that often and the author here never even though about his Predator or Gateway Spirit, strangely these winds once again provided a tail wind on hole 14 "Over the Road" where many had fun playing with this natural distance additive. :D
In the end another American Jordan their finally dialled in his game to where it should be going and hopefully with work continue to improve. Defending Essex Handicap World Champion Steve Kornmuller was absent from any chance of placing after a very poor start. Paul McCullough got back to his winning ways however and his efforts garnered him 2nd place and a disc.
Jordan Thies shot a very, very nice raw score of -1 (59) to get his first Essex Victory.
It was great to see many 'old school' players like Dave Allaker, Clive Phillips and Dan Eagle. A scheduling issue has been remedied and more old school players will be attending the next two Essex Handicaps on Saturdays, 18 June and 30 July(2 rounds Special starting at 1030am).

Weather: Cloudy to mostly cloudy, 12, windy 10-15mph with some calm spells.

"By far, the most important part of any shot is what is happening in the last split second as the disc is pulling itself from your grip. Focus there. It's the key."

"Don't let what you cannot do interfere with what you can do."
