BV Pro Am Finalz-29

Maybe it was all the carbon fiber Rock Stars sitting in the eddy. It was probably also the Downtown Hole’s user-friendliness and the fact that most hole moves were possible there. One way or another, it was quite a show Saturday night for the finals of the BV Pro-Am, as myself and Stephen Wright each [...] Read more »
