2021 Maricopa Open • FPO Final Holes • Holyn Handley • Cat Allen • Jennifer Allen • Sami Keddington

2021 Maricopa Open presented by Infinite Discs
FPO • Round 2 • Final Holes + Interview
Featuring: Holyn Handley, Jennifer Allen, Catrina Allen, Sami Keddington
Commentary: The Disc Golf Guy
Cameras: Gary to the Oh & The Disc Golf Guy
Edit: The Disc Golf Guy
Location: Copper Sky Rec Complex, Maricopa, AZ
Date: Sunday January 31, 2021
Immediately following the last putt on the MPO side, we decided to double back and find the exciting conclusion of the FPO division. I had been keeping an eye on the live scoring all day and sure enough, Holyn Handley was battling to hold onto the three stroke, first round lead she had built. We catch up with them on hole 24 and follow them in and then I capture an interview with the winner.
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.

    I think it brings new energy to field, everyone saying " who was That- where's she fun, she's not screwing AROUND. Unknown brings mystery and new eyeballs on her. She's so cool,young and being a member almost a year brings even more media.

    @thediscgolfguy still great coverage! I have started following women disc golf a lot more because the strategy is very different.

  16. thediscgolfguy

    Yeah, I hear ya. I was only contracted to cover one card but once I was done I doubled back to get the end of this. I wish I got more as well, pretty incredible event and story.

    Hole 26 cat taking four foot lengths?

  18. thediscgolfguy

    thediscgolfguy19 days ago

    I'm not about to bust out a tape measure next time I see Cat's shoes but if I had to guess ... her shoes are probably 9 inches or less. If so, 9 inches x 4 steps would equal 36 inches which is less than 1 meter (which is 39 inches and change). Cat is a professional and a World Champion, I'm guessing she's thought all of this out before and wouldn't intentionally be breaking any rules.

  19. Tim Bower

    Tim Bower20 days ago

    I think Cat is the best player on tour. I hope she figures out her putting...if one watches her closely it is evident that she tries so many different putting styles, angles on the disc, etc. I cannot wait to see her performances once she realizes that her issue is in the weight shift. Wishing her the best.

    Hole 26 Cat steps 4 feet in from the OB ? That’s not 1m. Anyone else see it ? She takes 3 steps. But already has a foot in from the ob line. Which would be her first foot in ?

  28. sfincione2000

    sfincione200022 days ago

    Wow, so a newbie can come in and challenge the top brass of the ladies that easily... I think it's the level of putting. Cat and Jen have been putting terribly. Cat's issue is more of a confidence thing, but i think Jen's mechanics are bad, she does this kind of pull back and snap out of the putt that causes her to move off the line so she misses left and right all the time. She should change that putt, she drives pretty far, so this is a major problem. Like they say, drive for show, putt for dough.

    Great bonus coverage, looking forward to seeing more Holyn this year! The "Heck yea!" "Thanks, Terry!" at 22:45 is wonderful! Glad the camera kept rolling and you kept that in. You're one of the best in the biz, your love for the game and the players shines through, and this little behind-the-scenes peek is great to see too. Thanks for all you do for DG!

  37. beetorstevie

    beetorstevie24 days ago

    Great footage, but question - do you guys not have to wear masks and do social distancing at the moment?

  38. hyzerponix

    hyzerponix23 days ago

    @beetorstevie Forgive me then if you will. Just never know when Karen is gonna strike these days, lol. Here in the US our policies tend to vary wildly, depending on state or local municipality. For the most part, though, park activities such as disc golf are considered non-contact activities. The crowds aren't large, social distancing can be easily achieved, etc. It's not considered a threat to public health, at least not yet. Cheers...

  39. beetorstevie

    beetorstevie23 days ago

    @hyzerponix - there was no judgement. I was actually asking because in the UK most disc golf courses are closed due to Covid restrictions, so I'm just surprised (and jealous) that you are legally allowed to play competitively, let alone without masks and social distancing.

  40. hyzerponix

    hyzerponix23 days ago

    LOL... Why does there always have to be a mask Karen in the comments getting into other folks' health decisions? Their bodies, their choice... Remember?😉

    Great to see such a new talent competing (winning) at such a high level. I'm a fan already for sure. Curious how long she has been playing. PDGA first year but how many playing I wonder. Hope to see her at more than just the two events she mentioned in the interview. More depth in an already growing FPO field is just what the division needs. Good luck to her.

    Rex and I walked up on Holyn and her friend at the first water hole. Holyn pured the line but hit the gunite and bounced in. Immediately went for the disc in the water when a rake came up with another disc golfer. That run was something else. Just went right for the pin on that peninsula first water hole WoW Rex was like omg! Masterfully done Holyn. You earned that and you learned that! Cheers to your success and happiness in flight !!!

    I would love to see Cat put the same energy and focus into every 12 foot putt like she did on hole 25. She's lost way too many events by 1-2 strokes after giving away 3-4 from inside 15 feet, but it's easily correctable.

  109. Kimmo Matikainen

    Kimmo Matikainen22 days ago

    @Jouni Salminen So you want to get disqualified from a tournament for misconduct? That can happen if you call time time after time for no reason. You can measure the distance and throw in 30 seconds. If player throws in 30 seconds, what does it matter if player just stands there or uses rangefinder? What if someone calls foot fault on you every single throw? In many cases player can measure the distance before it is his/her turn to throw. Usually players uses it only few times in a round. I don't understand Jennifer using it on this video when she had something like 80-100 ft to the the basket.
