All Good Things Must Come To An End
All good things must come to an end and so has the European Pro Tour 2022 season. The first ever European Pro Tour was filled with excitement and memorable moments and all in all it has been a fantastic year of disc golf. The EPT All-Stars event in sunny DGP Mijas was the perfect way to end the season and the competition provided exciting action all the way to the last holes. Rachel Turton and Jakub Semerad took home the wins with great performances throughout the three days of disc golf under the Spanish sun.
A tight battle for the All Star Championship took place in the Open Division (Mpo) as leader Jakub Semerad was chased hard by Mikael Räsänen (round -9, total -22), Niilo Hongisto (round -7, total -22) and Daniel Davidsson (round -7, total -22). However Jakub kept his cool throughout the day, played well and took home the well deserved win (round -4, total -24). The conditions were nice during the final day at Mijas with some sunshine and occasional wind. We were also treated to some amazing highlights during the round like 17 year old Niilo Hongisto’s 200m forehand and amazing putt for birdie on hole 13.
Bigger And Better Next Year
The Women’s Open Division (Fpo) featured eight players at the event and Rachel Turton continued her fantastic pace keeping her position at the top. Rachel displayed some great athleticism, calm nerves and controlled shots which allowed her to take home the win with a lead of eight strokes (round +3, total +11). Heidi Laine came in second place (round +5, total +19), Kaire Tekku came in third (round +2, total +21) and Silva Saarinen finished fourth (round +9, total +22). The Fpo division has been amazing to follow all year long.
It has been a great year of disc golf filled with some amazing highlights. Things are only going to get bigger and better next year on the European Pro Tour so make sure to tune in for season 2023. That’s all for now and the EPT team wishes everyone Happy Holidays!
