Team MINT is Victoria-ous!

Team MINT is Victoria-ous!

February 18, 2019

We couldn't be more proud of how our friends on Team MINT have started the year. If you missed it, we added 2 new players as well - Tim Escobedo Jr and Rick Muniz.

This weekend Tim showed why he's one of the best players in Texas with a win at the 2019 Victoria Open. This B-Tier is the usual starting point for the Texas season, just before the Pro Tour and A-Tier events in March and April. Tim averaged 1035 rated rounds to take down a field featuring 42 of the best players in Texas.

Here is what Tim had to say about his victory:

Got the win this weekend at 36th Victoria open!
Had a solid 3 rounds and a final 9! Thanks to my sponsor MINT DISCS, the nocturnal and skullboy flew great in the wet windy conditions. Battle some tough conditions and even tougher competition, a great win to get the year started!

Earlier this year in January the team picked up two wins - Stephanie Vincent won the Sugar Land Showdown & Matt Barajas won the Baytown Boomtown. Stephanie won by an impressive 7 strokes and Matt shot a hot final round that rated 1049 to win by a stroke against a deep field.

Matt continued his podium finishes with a 3rd place finish at the 1st ever Lone Star Classic. This was the first PDGA held at the popular Austin course in years. Matt managed to rebound from a broken putter in round 2, to shoot a 1012 rated 3rd round. Renae Farr meanwhile took 2nd place in Advanced Women, losing a tough play off battle.

This weekend Matt, Mike Laitala and Zach Jansen played in the Flat Creek Winter Flight. Mike shot 1033 and 1038 golf to secure 2nd place, while Matt was just behind him in 3rd and Zach in 6th place.

Renae Farr and Andrew Wikert also took down Pro division win at the Love is in the Air doubles event at Moodys Disc Golf Course this weekend. 

Our 2018 Team MINT Player of the Year, Jamie Callis also came in 2nd place at the 6th Bob Classic.

Nothing but podium finishes so far for the team! Proud to have such amazing people

Jamie is a great ambassador for Mint discs. He encourages players to throw his Mint discs, and frankly, I am surprised his Bobcat proto made it home with him from all the players at the Bob Classic 6 in Lake Charles sneaking a throw.
