Ricky Wysocki has narrowly lost the Vibram open on the final hole two years in a row. This year with his Latitude 64 discs he was able to close the deal and take home his first NT win with the Latitude products. He fell a couple shots behind halfway through the round to Barsby. It looked as if he might fall short again, but then he showed why he is the best putter in the world. Clutching up and making two 70 foot putts on 13 and 14 for birdie to take the lead back. Hole 14 his putt was directly at the water and he had the guts to run the putt and he put the Dagger in the heart. He headed to the final hole with a two stroke lead, played safe and claimed the title.
Besides Ricky, Feldberg finished 7th, Cameron Colglazier 10th, and Matt Bell finished in 12th. Feldberg did hit an epic ace on hole #3 that was caught on tape. It was aired yesterday on ESPN Sportscenter's Top Ten. It was #2!!! What an amazing showing for Team Latitude 64. Next stop Europe!!
As the Disc Golf tour headed to the Great Northwest Team Latitude was in full affect. Wysocki and Feldberg tied for Second narrowly losing by one stroke at the Ft. Stielacoom Open in Seattle.

Team Latitude 64º
This past Sunday Team Latitude's own Emil Dahgren and Dave Feldberg tied for 1st place in the first ever Sunrise Showdown in Sacramento, CA. Both shooting the exact same scores 51,51, for a -14 total of 102 strokes. As a sign of team camaraderie and since it was not PDGA Sanctioned the two of them decided to call it a tie, both receiving $500 dollars for the split. The event was a success fielding 92 players(26 open men). We are glad to see Emil healthy again and we look forward to him playing well on the American summer tour. Latitude would like to congratulate these two gentlemen and point out, a team that sticks together , Wins Together. Great job Team 64!
