The 48-years-old Hans Tegebäck took home the victory in the Open division, despite the fact that he is well eligible to play in the Masters division too. To top off team Discmania’s success in the Open division, Anders Swärd was placed tied second in the very tight competition. The final results of the tour were also extremely tight, as Anders was placed 4th in the tour, despite being only one point short of the top score.
In Women’s division Team Discmania’s Angelica Frantz left the competition behind and cruised to victory before Camilla Jernberg and the rest of the field. This was the first leg of the tour that Anki took part in so a single win wasn’t unfortunately enough to compete for the top spots of the whole tour.
In Finland a whole new tour called Discmania Cash Money Tour saw the light of day for the first time this weekend. The first tournament in the 4 tournament series, equivalent to the U.S. National Tour, was played at the always sunny Lauste DiscGolfPark in Turku, Finland. A Turku native Seppo Paju ruled the homecourse in open division despite his sticky first round which placed him on the tied ninth place together with 5 other players. The win in Turku marked the third consecutive tournament win in open division for 16-year-old Seppo as he won both of the two tournaments he attended last weekend too. The storm warning has been given!
In women’s division, a fellow Turku native and Team Discmania member Anne Matilainen took the title with ease by a spread of 38 strokes before Laura Uusi-Rasi who was placed second. Other Team Discmania members Jesse Heinonen (8th in MPO) and Leo Piironen (10th in MPO) didn’t quite reach the level they we’re aiming for this weekend, but thankfully there’s a whole bunch of competitions left for 2011. Extra props are handed out to Discmania’s own Juho Rantalaiho who once again did a great job as the Tournament Director in Lauste.
So yeah… We guess most of you know by now that Disc Golf World Champ 2009 Avery Jenkins is rocking Discmania plastic. Avery is not only a great player, but also an all-around Disc Golf powerhouse, who’s helped us a whole bunch in getting the word out to you guys about our terrific line of discs.
So needless to say, Avery works as a flag bearer for Discmania as a key member of team Discmania. Avery is just the type of person we want to have in our team – A great athlete and a great personality who works hard to spread the word of Disc Golf all over the world. He is an example of a great player that is easily approachable and pretty much always ready to give you tips on how to improve your game. Alongside Discmania, Avery also plays with Innova and is a member of the reputable Innova Star Team.

We’ve also released a limited Avery Jenkins signature set of C-line PD2′s that are you can find popping up on ebay and some selected retailers. Other Discmania discs that Avery uses are PD (Freak) and P2 (Psycho). Coincidentally, below is Avery rocking the P2 (Psycho) to one of the sketchiest baskets we’ve ever seen. No matter though, the basket is made with love and that’s all that counts here ;)
