FOURTH STOP OF THE EUROPEAN PRO TOUR
Estonian Open is already a legend in the European disc golf scene and is the fourth stop for the European Pro Tour. The event takes place at the beautiful Sportland Kõrvemaa course, about 45 minute drive from the Estonian capital Tallinn. Event week is already going on as the Monday Qualifier event was played yesterday, EPT players are taking their practice rounds, and the last things will be set up at the tournament center. We are going to see top-level disc golf and exciting moments.
CHALLENGES FOR CURRENT LEADER
Open division tour leader Joonatan Häme from Finland must show his best during the event. He has got 36,5 points lead in tour standings, but he will be chased hard by the other players at the top of the leaderboard. Niklas Anttila, Mikael Häme, Samuel Hänninen and Lauri Lehtinen are definitely hungry for success. And how about the local heroes from Estonia, Silver Lätt and Mathias Villota, to name a few. Norwegians Øyvind Jarnes and Knut Håland are also in top shape, and Jakub Semerad from the Czech republic. Who will take the victory?
RUNAWAY FOR LAINE?
In the women’s open division Heidi Laine is holding the lead in tour points with 40 points gap to UK star Rachel Turton. As Rachel is not joining the Estonian Open, Heidi can take even bigger lead for the tour championship. The biggest challengers at Kõrvemaa will be Estonians Keiti Tätte and Kaidi Allsalu. Current reigning European junior champion Silva Saarinen and Norwegian Anniken Steen will be chasing valuable tour points (currently 3rd and 5th in tour standings).
