The story of the Swingin DB’s Chain Banger Bash III was clearly the weather. Rain changing over to snow and ice on Saturday led to the cancelation of the second round on Saturday and a late start on Sunday. Despite that, 85 people made their way to Moncure to fight the conditions and a very challenging 21 hole layout.
In the Open Division, David Wiggins Jr. cruised to an 8 throw win over Cam Todd. With the win, Wiggins, Jr. took the lead in the NC Series by 47 points over the 2012 champion Terry Gallops.
In Masters, Brian Schweberger battled two time world champion and 3 time US Masters Champion Barry Schultz and bested him by 4 shots. Schweberger and Schultz are now tied both finishing 2nd to each other one time thus far.
The advanced division had a change in leaders as Jared Askew took over after another great showing in Moncure. Along with Ross Trevor, now in second, Askew played both events and took over the series lead. Todd Gingerich’s win put him in a tie for third place.
Intermediate looks as competitive as ever as multiple people played both events, but it was Derek Greene’s consistent play that puts him in the lead. After a strong 2nd place finish, Josh Rock moved up into second place as well.
The series takes a month off before event three, Tar Heel Tournament, which takes place in the Triangle division in Chapel Hill on March 16-17.
