Hot Start to 2023
Team Innova is having a stellar performance so far this year. We have had players on the podium at all three DGPT events so far this season. At last weekend’s Open at Austin, Calvin Heimburg and Jessica Weese both took 3rd place in their divisions to keep that streak alive.
The Open was a new stop for the Disc Golf Pro Tour this year, played at Harvey Penick Disc Golf Course in Austin, Texas. The golf-course-style venue challenged players with OB, greens guarded by trees, and a variety of shot shapes that are not found at any other courses on Tour. Though the players’ reviews of the course were mixed, the Open at Austin is likely to return next year, either with course changes or at an entirely new location.
3 Events, 3 Podium Finishes for Vinny
After two solid rounds, Calvin Heimburg was on the lead card, just one stroke behind first place. In that final round, Calvin Heimburg got off to a rough start to his round. He took a double bogey on hole one and threw three OB strokes within the first two holes. Just when Calvin managed to scrape his way back to even par, Calvin took another double bogey That put him two over through six holes. At this point in the round, Calvin sat in a tie for 32nd place.
Living up to his reputation as one of the most calm, collected, and composed players on tour, Calvin brushed off his early round troubles. He went on to shoot -9 through the next 12 holes. In that stretch, Calvin jumped 29 places up the leaderboard and onto the podium. He led the field for the event in Fairway Hits and Circle Two Hits in Regulation. In both the first and third round, Calvin took Eagle on hole 16, the 515-foot, Par 4.
Calvin Heimburg has finished on the podium of every DGPT event so far this season. With his 3rd place finish in Austin, Calvin further cemented himself as the leader in the DGPT Standings. He won the first Innova-sponsored event of the season at the Las Vegas Challenge. Let’s see if he can take down the next one too, the Innova Open at Texas States, coming up this weekend.
