On the opening day of the EPT Järva Open, the weather was overcast but the disc golf action was anything but dull. Järva DGP looked stunning as always, and spectators were treated to a spectacular moment as Kevin Jones aced hole 5 with a grenade shot, a rare and impressive feat in the sport. The energy and vibes were high for both the FPO and MPO divisions, with Henric Hagman and Luke Humphries tied for the lead, alongside Elina Rydberg.
In the FPO division, Elina Rydberg displayed her mastery on her home turf, taking the well-deserved lead with a solid round of -2. Tinja Väisänen and Olivia Kindstedt also showed great form, shooting even par. Tomorrow, they will be joined by Sofie Björlycke for another exciting day of competition.
