Record numbers of Aussies competing overseas

The northern hemisphere summer of 2019 is proving to be the season that the most ever Aussie disc golfers have traveled internationally to compete. As the sport develops in Australia, we are starting to produce players who qualify for top level international competition. The Aussies travelling away to play are (from top left to bottom right):

Jonathan Jonas, Shaun Batey, Sue Summers, Kairi Koobakene, Ken-Kristjan Toomjoe, Priit Koiv, Matt Lamy, Archer Shaw, Ken Summers, Jacob Stanley and Andre-Kristopher Toomjoe; who are all heading to the WFDF 2019 World Team Disc Golf Championships (WTDGC) in Alutaguse, Ida-Virumaa, Estonia this August.

Jordan Wheeler is currently homeless, roaming the USA in a van and will be playing in the Pro World Championships in Preoria Illinois in August. Also Jordie has been on tour competing in a host of smaller tournaments as well as some National and Disc Golf Pro Tour events, like the Ledgestone Open and the Silver Cup.

Toosje Frequin is travelling with her good friend Cassie Sweetten, the queen of Aussie Disc Golf, to compete in the prestigious US Women’s Disc Golf Championships in Spotsylvania Virginia in September.

While Bruce McNaughton, Tim Bohan, Patrick Ferris Jr and Kim Holmes are all playing in the Amateur World Championships in York, Pennsylvania starting this week.

The best of luck from everyone in Australian Disc Golf to you all.
