Unofficial results right now but great job Ben Callaway for 6th place, Evan Qualls for 28th place and Chad Nelson for 40th place.

There was a video on PDGA showing highlights of Ben (don't remember which video it was though but it is around the 6 - 7 minute mark).

This was by far the best tournement i have ever been to, and ive played in a few tournements. the tournement staff was great, everything ran smooth and on time, lunches at the course everyday was perfect, spotters on almost every hole, and a sick player pack. I dont think you could ask for much more!

Oh and did i mention that the course is just absolutely sick!!!! So much length and extreme elevation, it was a test of endurance just to walk the course let alone play three rounds on it. I think i proved that you dont need a huge arm to play well on that course, but it sure does help!

All in all a great experience and i would highly recommend that if you are an ametuer, then you need to qualify for this event and go play it. you wont be dissapointed!!

Good job guys. Watching the videos made me want to drive there and play that course, even if just one more time.

I've always wanted to go back and take another crack at it...
Nice job fellas...that course is a monster for sure...how'd the lizard games go this year?? I think that's what they were called when I made the trek up there...

Nice advertising on the follow through by Mr Callaway at the 5:55 mark adn again a short time after that.

Was there a long drive contest there? Would love to see little Wiggins and Ben square off.

Ben managed to get through the rough weather in great shape. Here's some of this action from Friday's play.
