The 2017 PDGA Pro Masters World Championships took place in Grand Rapids, Michigan, 15-19th of August and Team Latitude 64° had a strong presence. David Feldberg, JohnE McCray, Patrick Brown and Scott Reek competed in Masters division and Eric Rainey in Grandmasters.
3. David Feldberg – struggled for the first couple of rounds but after a strong push, made it to the finals and finished third (only one shot from second place).
5. JohnE McCray – came out strong the first three rounds, despite battling Lyme Disease flare ups for the last couple of weeks. Finished 5th after nearly making it to the final four showdown.
8. Patrick Brown – started slow but showed character and got better and better as the tournament went on. His semifinal -11 was the hot round and got him to a 8th place finish.
30. Scott Reek – played solid disc golf with 5 of 6 rounds well above his rating.
2. Eric Rainey – just like last year Eric finished second after playing great disc golf. This time he ended up four shots behind the winner Ron Convers.
