March 1, 2012– Memorial Disc Golf Tournament- Fountain Park
You might think there are a bunch of “Frisbee-throwers” in the park this week-end. But that’s like saying Phil Mickelson is an amateur hacker. This is THE 2012 Professional Disc Golf Association Memorial Tournament, and the field of 400 professional and amateur participants are serious about their sport. The 2012 Memorial Championship presented by Discraft kicks off the National Tour and is held every year at the Fountain Hills Disc Course at Fountain Park, which is considered to be one of the best in the country.
Be sure to visit and enjoy the beautiful weather. Walking traffic through Fountain Park will be allowed, though all visitors are asked to be mindful of golfers. The event will run in conjunction with The Memorial Experience, featuring contests, a vendor showcase and a concert Saturday evening.
Fans of the sport will be able to watch all the drama unfold live from the beautiful Fountain Hills course in Arizona by pointing their browser over to http://www.DiscGolfPlanet.tv. The broadcast will begin on Thursday and continue Friday and Saturday. Special bonus coverage of The Memorial Championship presented by Discraft will occur on Tuesday, as DiscGolfPlanet.tv will provide a live feed from the Memorial Press Conference in Fountain Hills at 2:15 pm MST.
With a full field of the game’s top players looking to start their year with a big win, the defending champion, Paul McBeth, has his work cut out for him. Nikko Locastro won his third consecutive player of the year award in 2011 and is coming off an impressive win at the Gentlemen’s Club Challenge, where McBeth finished second. Nate Doss is aiming to keep his momentum from his stellar play in the second half of last year where he won the Kansas City Wide Open, the Vibram Open and his third World Championship. Paige Pierce is the defending champion in the women’s division.
As in previous seasons, this Tenth year for the PDGA National Tour maintains its mission to be the spotlighting of disc golf’s best events on the best courses with the best players. With 2012’s six-event schedule, the PDGA feels that this valuable mission will continue to be fulfilled for disc golf fans, players, and strategic partners.
