Late in 2015 I managed to break my shoulder by stepping into our laundry room without realizing the crawl space was open. Down I went–the only thing worse than the injury was not having a video of the fall to post online–it would have hit millions of views I’m sure!
The good news is that I was able to shift my focus (so to speak) to photographing golfers, rather than throwing discs. So, without further ado, I present Mundy Park Doubles in January, 2016.
In a crazy weekend of wind-storm driven disc golf, the Mundy Park disc golf team won is fifth consecutive provincial title on August 30, 2015. Play had to be briefly suspended on Saturday due to a windstorm sweeping through the lower mainland dropping trees and branches throughout the course.
After day 1, Mundy Park held a commanding lead, with 13.0 points. The Islands were second at 8.0, and T-Town was tied with Queen Elizabeth, at 6. On day 2, Mundy stretched its lead to another record setting final, winning 14 of 17 matches and accruing a total of 27 points. The Islands secured second place with 16.5 points, while Tsawwassen avoided the relegation match by outlasting QE, 13.5 points to 11. QE will seek to earn back its JB Cup spot next summer.
Coincidently, day 2 was also the day I turned 50–best birthday ever!
After a crazy last day that saw the team go from last place in the morning, to winning 14 of 17 matches during the day, Mundy Park took the Jim Brown Cup for the 4th consecutive year. A number of firsts: first team to win four in a row (covering a course hosted by every club) and the first team to move from last place to first place on day two. We also became the winningest JB Cup team, at five victories (QE is next with 4, the Islands 3).
