Paul Levasseur from Regina got married the week before the B.C. Open disc golf tournament.
On Sunday, July 24, having flown out to B.C., he was at Raptors Knoll course in Aldergrove, warming up while he waited his turn to play. His wife Emma was competing, too.
“We’re having our honeymoon,” the newlywed smiled.
“We’re just having fun.”
The Levasseurs were among 346 competitors, 94 professionals and 252 amateurs from Canada and the U.S., to play at the PDGA (Professional Disc Golf Association) sanctioned B.C. Open, making it the largest event of its kind in Canada, according to tournament director John Gould-Thorpe.
Gould-Thorpe, owner of Ace Runners Disc Golf in Langley, explained so many people signed up to play, a second course had to be created at Campbell Valley Regional Park in Langley to accommodate the overflow.
“We had over 100 people on the waitlist within a few days of it opening,” Gould-Thorpe told the Langley Advance Times.
American pro disc golfer Scott Withers won the MPO (Male Pro Open) division at the B.C. Open.
Withers, from Albany, Oregon is ranked 53rd in the U.S. and has career earnings of $104,671.
