Dylan Feldman’s spectacular performance lit up the Barwon Valley Bash, a thrilling one-day disc golf tournament held on June 22nd. With a sold-out field of 35 eager participants enjoying ideal weather conditions, the stage was set for some intense competition.

In the highly competitive MPO division, local favorite Dylan Feldman showcased his prowess, reaffirming his status as the country’s second-highest-rated player. He dominated with a commanding 13-stroke victory over Geelong peers Ryan Hart and Tim Bohan, boasting an impressive average rating of 1038 for the event. With performances like these, Dylan is poised to make a run for the top spot in the national rankings.

Narada Guzman made waves in MA1 with a stunning Round 1 score of -4, seizing an early lead over Allen Brunsting. However, Tournament Director Chris Hart delivered a remarkable performance of his own, scoring a career-best 990-rated round (-7) in the second round to clinch victory by three strokes over Ethan Lewis.

The FA1 division witnessed a gripping showdown between Anita Weber and Emma Winkworth, with Emma taking an early lead after Round 1. Anita rallied in the second round, and a tense battle ensued until Anita pulled away in the final stretch to secure a decisive 4-stroke victory.

In MA3, Juan Rueda displayed remarkable consistency, carding pars on nearly every hole in his debut on the course. The Ultimate Frisbee convert comfortably claimed victory over Ashley Weidner by an impressive 8-stroke margin.

The MA4 division provided a nail-biting finish as Mark Reiffel and Tobias Weber ended their 36 holes tied at 21 over par. In an intense playoff, Tobias, who recorded the only three birdies in the division, emerged victorious.

Special thanks were extended to Geelong Disc Golf Club committee members Chris Hart and Matt Hill for their diligent organisation of the event. Disc golf enthusiasts can anticipate another thrilling tournament, the Rudolph Riot, scheduled for the first weekend in December. Stay tuned for more details!
