2018 is already going by so fast! We kicked off the year with the addition of 2 new team members - Stephanie Vincent and Matthew Barajas.
Stephanie, a PDGA member since 2006, has been instrumental in the continued growth of the women's side of the sport. As a founding member of Women Throwing Frisbees, winner of 20 PDGA events, and the PDGA Texas State Coordinator(South Region), she is one of the most important players in the game today for her work on and off the course. We are proud to welcome our fellow Texas State Bobcat to the team!
Matthew is one of the best up and coming pros in Texas. As president of the Texas State University Disc Golf Team, he takes pride in growing the sport on his college campus. We look forward to his continued growth as a student and professional player in 2018.
February Tournament Recap:
Matthew and fellow teammate Kyle Barnhouse are featured in the latest Jomez Pro Final 9 at Roy G Guerrero DGC(Austin, TX). They made the top 5 out of 90 players to get featured on the Final 9 film card. Great shooting guys and thanks for representing MINT Discs! Kyle also provided the drone footage for the final 9 with his Max Flight Disc Golf video production company. Make sure to follow their Facebook page for more awesome videos in 2018.
Krissie Fountain moved up to Pro Women this year and took 3rd(of 10) in her first event of 2018 at the Cedar Hill Chill. Krissie and her fiance Neal also took First in Advanced Mixed Couples at the 5th Annual Love is in the Air Tournament.
Jimmy Zamora and his wife Brandi also competed in the Love is in the Air tournament and took 1st place in Open Couples.
This last weekend, we had 3 pro players competing in the Flat Creek Winter Flight. Matthew tied for 2nd place, Mike Laitala took 4th place and Zach Jansen wrapped up final cash in 5th place. There was only a 4 stroke difference between 1st and 5th so it was great to see all our participating team members finish at the top with a chance to win it down the stretch.
