Another Champion Crowned After DEP Cup

The Down East Players Cup occurred this weekend and as always, Max Crotts and the Greenville Disc Golf Club put on an awesome event that included free breakfast and lunch for all players in attendance. A Full field of 80 players battled the 20 hole layout, which changes each round, at West Meadowbrook Park. The Open division was won by Brian Schweberger. Schwebby doesn’t compete very often in Open in the North Carolina series but as if anyone doubted it, he can still hang with the young boys. As noted last week, Barry Schultz locked up the victory on the series. However, Terry Gallops has now clinched second place. Eight players have a chance to finish in the third payout spot with two events left. The masters division was won by Eric Vandenberg. The big news, series wise, is that Brian Schweberger officially clinched the North Carolina Masters Series this weekend. The race now is for second between Dave George, runner up in Greenville, and Chris Lee. But many people are still in striking distance. The advanced division is as close as it gets with Todd Gingerich holding a slim 17 point lead over Jared Askew. The intermediate division is now officially a two horse race as Josh Rock and Michael Spivey have clinched first and second place, however either one could win the series. The next to last stop on the series is the first weekend in November at the Lake Reidsville Open. The series concludes at the Forest Hills Open in Durham two weeks later.
