There may be typos, but Dollar's 45
in the first round isn't one of them. Albeit against a layout with one changed hole, that's a new course tournament record . . . by 3 strokes (Nate Doss had a 48 in the Atlanta Open a few years ago). He came back down to earth a bit in the second round, with a 48 that would still have tied the prior course record. He very nearly lapped the field, winning by 14 strokes over Joey Lutz and Dustin Perry, who tied for second at 107. The entire Open field finished closer to second place (13 strokes from second to last) than the two in second did to Dollar.
Ryan Harris took home a souvenir (trophy disc) in his first tournament winning Advanced with a 113. Andrew Rudick took Intermediate, and Austin Clark won Rec. Carlos Rodriguez took Advanced Masters and Vern Williams won Advanced Grandmasters. Eight-year-old Joel Robinson had the Juniors field to himself but put up scores that would have placed him ahead of several others in Rec.
Thanks to everyone who helped make this year's LITW a success: assistant TD Ryan Watson, Craig Nettleship, Lance Todd and Craig Dickerson for help during signin and last minute prep (and to Craig for cooking the TD one of the biggest tastiest burgers I've ever had between rounds), Brett Porter, Caitlin Gray (and Graysie) and Imran Khan for help with scoring between rounds, Dave Dittmar and Cody Britain of Disc Stalker for the trophy discs, and Wes Campbell for handling am payout and loan of the temporary basket for Hole 4. Special thanks to Mark Holder and Joel St. Vrain from the Roswell Recreation and Parks Department for jumping into action to coordinate the brush clearing, etc. for the new Hole 4 layout. Thanks to Ari Walker for the tournament graphic design, and to my wife and kids for putting up with all the time spent on tournament prep the last few weeks and for making the cash run to ensure enough cash in the right denominations to make pro payout easy to distribute.
No doubt I'm overlooking some folks, but I've fallen asleep at the keyboard several times since I started working on this post, so forgive me for now and I'll make sure to acknowledge you later as soon as I remember or you remind me
Please let me know right away if you see anything wrong or questionable on the scores.
