International Action Heroes

Simon Lizotte and Jussi Meresmaa battled for the top honor in Germany this weekend at the 24th Berlin Open. The eighteen year old Lizotte showed remarkable composure as his Team Captain applied pressure down the stretch. Jussi’s sizzling, final nine round of 25 was 3 strokes better than Simon. In the end however, it was Lizotte holding off the veteran by one.

About 5000 miles away, in Vancouver, another battle was brewing. In this generation gap showdown it was Dave Feldberg, the elder, outlasting Will Schusterick to defend his 2010 victory in Kamloops, BC for the Canadian Disc Golf Championships run by Fan Plastic 4 winner Carrie Neal. For Dave, the Canadian title is just one more feather in his international fedora.
