Finnish Doubles Championships were held at Peurunka Disc Golf Course last weekend and the freshly crowned Finnish Champion Seppo Paju‘s game was once again too hot to handle for the other competitors. Seppo and his pair Teemu Nissinen were tied for the first place after Saturday, but forgot to sign their score, allowing a 2-stroke lead to Antti Heikkilä & Marko Jokimäki. The two-stroke lead wasn’t enough to keep Seppo & Teemu behind as after the next round they were back on top with seven stroke lead. The finals were merely a formality for the boys and yet another title was handed out to 16-year-old Seppo, who’s had a phenomenal season so far.
The silver medal was also awarded to Team Discmania player, as Leo Piironen and his pair Ilari Tuoma were placed second in the competition. If you haven’t been following our facebook page or Youtube Channel recently, chances are you’ve missed the latest brief disc introduction clips from both Seppo & Leo. So take a moment to check out how the champs like to handle some of their favorite discs:
The talk of the day has been our 16-year-old Team member Seppo Paju, who cashed in a nice 500 bucks at the Pro Worlds Distance Exhibition by shooting an incredible hole in one on his second shot. To Seppo’s surprise the basket was placed “a mere” 120m/395ft away from the pier so he couldn’t use the distance discs (DD2) he had with him. A quick stop at a Pro Shop didn’t get Seppo the disc he was looking for (PD2) but thankfully the second option, Innova’s Firebird got the job done. Congratulations Seppo!
Team Discmania & Innova member Will Schusterick was also playing hot on Thursday (and all week for that matter) and his 1061-rated round lifted him to the lead cart for Friday. Will is currently standing at the third place with 7 strokes separating him from the top position. There’s still plenty of holes to go so it’s still anyone’s game!
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.

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.
