Team Discmania’s young star Simon Lizotte continued his stellar play again last week at home soil. The event was Deutsche Discgolf Meisterschaft 2013, aka The German Disc Golf Championships that was played on four different courses near Wolfenbüttel, Germany. Despite his young age, Simon has been dominating the rapidly growing German Disc Golf scene for quite some time and last week’s victory marked the 5th consecutive German Championship title for the 20-year-old super talent.
The next event on Simon’s busy schedule is the United States Disc Golf Championships in Rock Hill, South Carolina. Right after being awarded the trophy at Wolfenbüttel, Simon hopped on the plane and headed towards the prestigious Winthrop Gold course in Rock Hill. This will be Simon’s first time competing at the USDGC, where he will be representing Team Discmania alongside Avery Jenkins, who has taken part in the USDGC 12 times already before this year’s event.
The action at the USDGC will be broadcasted live at DiscGolfPlanet.tv and TheSpinTV.com will also be filming on-site for a nice set of videos to be released after the tournament.
Team Discmania’s young German talent Simon Lizotte proved himself once again victorious last weekend at Belgian Open. The tournament was held on the course of “Le parc Bourdon” in Braine-l’Alleud, Belgium and it was already the 9th leg of the PDGA EuroTour, with just 2 events remaining in this year’s tour schedule. Simon eventually won the tournament by 1 stroke, but the final nine was essentially a technicality for the young German, as after the 3 tournament rounds he was already leading the rest of the field by 7 strokes.
By taking home the victory at Belgium, Simon also moved to the lead at EuroTour points standings. Simon snatched the lead from US touring Pro and a fellow Team Discmania member Avery Jenkins, who’s summer tour of Europe consisted of two wins, one 2nd and one 4th place on the most competitive tour on Europe. The current EuroTour standings have not been updated at the time of writing this article, but can be found here.
