2021 Maricopa Open • MPO • R2 • Front • Adam Hammes • Nick Newton • Henry Manahan • Mike Lassuy

2021 Maricopa Open presented by Infinite Discs
MPO • Round 2 • Front Half
Featuring: Adam Hammes, Nick Newton, Henry Manahan, Michael Lussay
Commentary: Pete Ulibarri & The Disc Golf Guy
Camera: The Disc Golf Guy
Edit: The Disc Golf Guy
Location: Maricopa Meadows, Maricopa, AZ
Date: Sunday, January 31, 2021
Buckle up for a wild ride here on Championship Sunday at the 27 hole track, Maricopa Meadows. Considerably different look, feel and play can be found at Maricopa's original disc golf course and we're sure it will perfectly set the stage for us to crown our 2021 Maricopa Open Champion.
More than $1k is on the line for the first place podium position and three of the four players featured this round were here on the lead card during the 2020 iteration of this event. Hammes was able to best the field last year but he starts out tied with Nick Newton and plenty of talented players all lurking around that leaderboard with similar scores.
I promise this action is something you don't want to miss.
Huge shout out to both Pete Ulibarri (Maricopa Meadows) and Mike Jewel (Copper Sky) for helping with some drone previews along with all of my Patreon subscribers and supporters. Sam and Chuck Russ have again hired me to cover this event and I'm honored to do so. Thank you to them and all of the coverage sponsors and anyone else that helps with the production.

    If this round doesn't get you jacked about tournament disc golf then I'm not sure what will. I'd really appreciate it if you'd at least 'like' the video but if you do that and comment (and subscribe) you become eligible for something free from me. #LikeAway #Duh

    @Terry, years ago I had a conversation with Feldberg, Ricky, and Devan about AZ’s best unknown player. We split between Lassuy and Gailey.

    Looks warm compared to the midwest, keep the chase card in the video as you have done in this one.

    Awesome coverage! I really dig seeing some players I'm not familiar with on coverage and hearing what you guys know about them. The bonus AB coverage on the chase was great too! Fully subscribed!

    4:15 i hate this rule... happened to GG last season too, he submitted a score worse than what he actually shot so he got penalized... ridiculous rule

    I like to see the chase coverage. I'm sure the card we're watching knows what's happening so it informs us to some decisions. Thanks for all you do!

    I think it would have been more fun to have the Chase Card check-in after each hole was completed. So if you show the chase card, show the hole that was just done on the main video.

    didnt Hammas have a score of 11 under at the conclusion of round 1?

  18. thediscgolfguy

    thediscgolfguy19 days ago

    I score it as -11 (which was correct) but the live scoring had been turned in as -10 so once that was discovered he gets his correct score plus a 2 stroke penalty which results in him being at -9 to open round 2.

    Yes I like the check in from the chase card. Especially if it coincides with the hole the lead card is playing. “ And here’s how AB played this hole.”

    Outstanding work Terry again. Would you consider a 4 hole recap HUD like CCDG? It changes the way we watch the game. I know it’s a lot more work but would love to see it in the future.

    Good video, better able to follow the disc flight than most. I'd love to see a few seconds of a bio about each player (photo, age, where they are from, disc golf experience, sponsorship, and even possibly a video greeting from each). It's also fun to know what discs they're throwing. Thanks for breaking up the winter blues!

    Thanks for the coverage Terry. We need as much wintertime coverage as we can get here in Iowa. Seeing green grass and discs flying can really boost the morale.

    Chase card check ins were a nice feature. They are quick and tell the story but bring the tournament as a hole together well.

    The chase card check-ins look good! I now regret not playing Maricopa Meadows in 2017.

  44. Ken Tew

    Ken Tew22 days ago

    Love the check-ins. Almost wish it was played out at a bit of a real time order so that we would get a feel for what the leaders might have known (or could have know if the looked) at the time they were playing.

  45. Paul Goudfrooij

    Paul Goudfrooij23 days ago

    I like the chase card check in like this if there is only one person on the chase card doing so well and challenging the lead. If more than one person is doing that well on the chase card, perhaps the chase card deserves its own video.

    That was all my fault. I didn't do any color correcting on the Shelly Sharpe stuff. I take the blame on that one. BTW - glad you liked it. It was all Pete Ulibarri that filmed the Shelly Sharpe and Maricopa Meadows course. Mike Jewel of Pin Deep Disc Golf filmed Copper Sky for me.

    Pete Ulibarri23 days ago

    I apologize for the improper use of the language, I do strive to continue learning and I see what you mean, however, we are so far south that although these geese bare the markings and license plates of the queens land, our geese down here have ceased migrating and now speak with a Spanish accent....thus, we have mistaken them for Canadian Geese.

    Zachary Wilderman23 days ago

    Another course that looks so deceptively simple... if you hit your lines, avoid the OB, miss the water, make the putt uphill, ignore the wind, and prevent the rollaways on the short grass. Ah, the joys of disc golf.

    I very much like the chase card check-in exactly the way you did it or possibly showing it mixed in with the lead card coverage a bit more (but only if chase card ties it up or takes the lead). Great coverage Terry!

    Just a glimpse of the chase man/card, like u did, is perfect, keeps you informed, but doesn't distract from the main event. It was really a plus for me !

    I enjoy the check ins with the chase card, but would also like to see the other players scores as well. Just a thiught

  90. thediscgolfguy

    thediscgolfguy23 days ago

    Fair statement but in the same light, the other players were not pushing anything like the way AB was. Had AB not been pushing so hard, he wouldn't have been included either but he was making a run at the "W".

    The way you did the chase card check in was awesome terry! It was quick, so we just got the highlights, so it didn’t take away from the lead card but also gave a good idea what was happening with A.B. Great job!

  97. Ben Seiss

    Ben Seiss23 days ago

    Loved the chase chard coverage. I'd recommend doing it more regularly through the round at even intervals (maybe every 3 holes). It felt weird having three holes once and then like six holes at the very end.

    Chase card check-in is a great addition! I think playing them soon after the lead card was a good choice.

  101. Jimmy Wyatt

    Jimmy Wyatt23 days ago

    I like the way you handled the chase card! If someone on the chase card is putting up a score that will effect the the lead card's standings, I think it's important. An example of chase card footage I didn't like was the footage of The Lost Valley Open. The cutting to and from the whole time, doing hole intros after watching it get played once, and then leaving halfway to see other people putt was weird.

    I love the way you did the Anthony chase coverage. I allowed us to keep up with any challengers that are not fully visible on the lead card. Definitely would invite more of this type of coverage. Love that you bring us to all the tournaments that we can't otherwise travel.

  108. Andy Madison

    Andy Madison23 days ago

    Are you sure this was in Arizona? Looks too green with too much water! Beautiful course. When I first started watching disc golf coverage, I found it to be very refreshing compared to "normal" golf, where they are constantly jumping around and showing different players on different holes, focusing a bit more on putting on the green. Sometimes following a professional stick golf game can be challenging, because all that jumping around breaks up the continuity of the game, and I would have liked to have seen some shots that they skip over. So, overall, I've really liked following one group through a whole round like is done in disc golf. There have been some rare instances, though, where I've watched the video following the lead card of a disc golf game where at the very end, the commentator has to say, "But, he's not the winner, because such-and-such pulled from behind on the chase card and won the tournament". Having no coverage of that individual and not seeing what he (or she) did on various holes is a little annoying. (Of course, with there being A LOT more money in professional stick golf, they can afford many cameras and personnel; so I understand why footage of other groups cannot always be done.) All this to say: Yes, I enjoyed seeing the chase card as it is obvious that he is in contention. (With all of this being pre-recorded, though, there is this nagging feeling in the back of my mind, "Is this foreshadowing? Did they go back to show him because he won the tournament?" I'll guess I'll find out after I watch the Back footage!)

    Hole 2- I don't understand the point of hanging a basket if you are going to leave it at the same height as a basket mounted in the ground. It seems like it should be more elevated.
