Doss and Jenkins' give clinic at Devens

9/1/2010 by John Borelli

After playing the Vibram Open, World Champions Nate Doss, Valarie Jenkins, and Avery Jenkins stopped by Devens disc golf course in Devens, MA to give a members-only skills clinic to 26 tagholders.

The three pros reviewed the basics of throwing starting with grip, arm motion, hip and head positioning, and finally the all-important x-step. After some Q&A about technique and life on the road, Avery let loose some bombs across the field while Nate and Val worked one-on-one with a few people.

They also spent time autographing discs, posing for pictures, and just hanging out with us. It really was an awesome night.

Earlier in the day, several volunteers who have worked on the course a lot were invited to play a round with Val, Avery, Nate, and current <19 World Champion Ricky Wysocki. That of course was awesome because I've always wondered what a top pro would shoot on our course, never mind three. Playing it blind, Avery was one throw short of tying the course record with a 50 (-4), Nate shot a 53 (-1), Ricky shot par 54, and Val, well, she got her money's worth. I can only imagine what they'd shoot after a few more rounds under their belts.

Sounds like a great time. Good job setting this up Borelli(x2). Did they convince you to move the tee for hole 8? :)

Nope, but they did give me some good advice on a few other holes that I'm going to seriously consider. Stay tuned this Fall!

I can't wait. I don't get to the Hill that often, but love the improvements each time I visit. It is shaping up to be a really nice course.
