The Rockburn Rumble took place at the Rockburn Park Disc Golf Course in Elkridge, Maryland on Saturday, May 19. With 77 disc golfers competing in this PDGA sanctioned C-tier event it was Patapsco Punisher winner Mike Moser of Wilmington, Delaware who was crowned champion with a final score of 10-under par.
Moser has had several victories this year, including last weekend’s Brandywine Breeze and the Roundabout. Following at second place was Essential Discs’ team member Kevin Gleason of Salisbury, Maryland scoring 3-under par. He had an impressive first round shooting a 51 to Moser’s 49, but a difficult hole in the second round took him out of contention for first place. I have a feeling a victory will be coming his way soon.
Shawn Johnson of Berlin, Maryland and Tim Barham of Glen Burnie, Maryland followed in a tie for third place at just a stroke behind scoring 2-under par, while Joel Provencher of Catonsville, Maryland and Tom Kim of Silver Spring, Maryland came in at a tie for fifth place, both scoring at even par.
In the grandmasters division it was Mark Sherwood of Laurel, Maryland who emerged the winner after battling it out in overtime with second place finisher Lewis Graninger of Westminster, Maryland.
Local Waymon Peet won the advanced division with a final score of 3-under par while Gary Karbaca followed at second place scoring 2-over par and Dan Becker captured third place with a final score of 5-over par. Kristen McIntyre won the advanced division for the women scoring 26-over par.
The intermediate division win went to Jeff Watson with a final score of 6-over par, with Matthew Kashima capturing second place scoring 7-over par. Finally, Sarah Patterson won the women’s intermediate division with a final score of 33-over par.
Congratulations to all the winners and competitors on a great day of disc golf!
