Dan Harvey Wins Season 1 Championship

The heavy winds, wet terrain, and raised water level, plagued Youth Park and anyone who decided to challenge the course. Vinny, Dan, Will, and Victor were present and ready to play for the championship. The wind immediately played a key role as the scores got bad really fast. After the first 2 holes, Vinny and Dan sat with a +1 while Will and Victor trailed at +3. Everyone started to calm down and make shots on the front 9, but the back is when the wind picked back up and caused strange th ... more

TDS Season 1 Championship Set For Youth Park

The final 4 are ready and pumped for the Tampa Disc Slingers' final event. The place of battle has been selected by 1st place finisher Vinny Piperato. He has made Youth Park the location where he will defend his title. The selection makes perfect sense as that is the only place where Vinny remains undefeated and averages a +3.33 per round. The hill to climb for his opponents will be a little steep when going up against statistics like that, but they are up for the challenge and are ready to ... more

Vinny Escapes With Win, Remains Undefeated

Friday afternoon played host to a wet and wild Weekly Informal 6 held at USF Riverfront Park. With puddles on the course to negotiate through and slick discs to throw, the expectation of terrible scores turned out to be far from the truth. Through the first 7 holes, Joe Mangrum blasted through to take an early 2 stroke lead with Vinny Piperato and Chris Sikes trying to climb back into the race. After bogeys on hole 8 and hole 9 by Joe, Vinny was able to hang on with pars and go into the b ... more

3rd Weekly Tournament results

This week we had a limited showing of people for the tournament, but hopefully next week everyone will be in better shape to play.



Will -The Token- played one of the best games of his career so far. He finished first with only 9 over and beat out Joe by 2 strokes. The Token will be back next week to defend his title against all who would like to try to take it from him.



Joe played the game that he has been hinting at over the last few weeks. He is slowly getting the control and the distance needed to become a formidable force on the course.
