Midwest Collegiate Disc Golf Championships
« on: October 17, 2010, 03:09:15 PM »
I would like to thank everyone who came out today for the Midwest Collegiate Disc Golf Championships. The weather was great (wind picked up a bit in the 2nd round) and even though the team title was kind of put away early, UNI made up much ground in the afternoon. Individual honors were a bit tighter, with Eric Winkleman pulling away from the crowd on the Gold Course. Here are some results.

Team Standings:
ISU 1 367
UNI 374
ISU 2 380
Indian Hills 386
IWCC 420

Top Individual Standings:
Eric Winkleman UNI 116
Garrett Miller ISU 1 121
Zach Moses ISU 1 122
Carter Smith ISU 2 123
Rich Kennedy Indian Hills 124
Zach Hill ISU 1 126

Hopefullly we can get some Missouri teams to compete next year.  College Team disc golf is just in its infancy, and has a totaly different tournament feel when college teams are playing as a team to win a title.  I think it will grow.

Is it combined singles stroke play?

Each college team brings 3 or 4 players.  All players must be amatuer status and must be taking at least 6 hours at their respective college.  Top three scores for each school for each round are counted.  Some schools are now even bringing 2 teams per school.  We have held this tournament for 4 years now, and 2 of our past winners, University Nebraska Kearney, and Indian Hills have both gone on to compete in the Collegiate Nationals.  Iowa State this years winner is also planning on going to Nationals.  If you win our tournament, we pay for your registration fee to nationals.  All it takes is three players from your college.  Surely there are some college disc golfers in Kansas who would like to come next year  :)

Mike...I think collegiate disc golf is one of the best things going on now that is helping to advance the sport. Please let us know when your event is happening next year before it happens. I think there is a club at KU now, and I know that K-State went to the nationals last year. There may be a course going in at Johnson County Community College soon as well.  Please keep us posted out here, and if possible, also send notice to me at rick@discgolfworld.com.

Thanks...Rick

I was approached by our Student Government Association last week about putting a course on campus here at Pittsburg State.  I think Missouri Southern in Joplin MO is considering one and I've hear that Oral Roberts is also putting a course in.  So I would second the comment about the increasing demand of disc golf among our universities as the sport continues to grow (or throw).

We have a course on campus at the University of Saint Mary and are in discussions with our athletic department to take it beyond intramurals. We shall see.
