Bradshaw, Barbeau, Boden make glow debuts at Locust Post Brewery

Warder wins it; Shreve 2nd

* Next glow round set for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Oct. 31 at Hoffman Park DGC in Frostburg (free to play)

LITTLE ORLEANS — Playing a course blind. In the dark. After 18 tournament holes earlier in the day.

The odds were stacked against Dan Bradshaw heading into the Allegany County Disc Golf Club’s glow round Sunday night at Locust Post Brewery in Little Orleans.

Bradshaw, 29, of Chambersburg, Pa., was one of three players to make their club glow debuts — and, along with Steven Boden, his first club round ever. Bradshaw, for one, didn’t mind the odds.

“It was my best round ever,” Bradshaw said after his two under par 52 performance earned him a third-place finish among nine competitors. The mark put him first among Men’s Rec Division players.

It was the first glow round of any type at Locust Post Brewery, which added a nine-hole course to its stable of amenities earlier this year. The Allegany County Disc Golf Club previously hosted a flex league round during the summer and participated in course designer Cultivation Disc Golf’s grand opening.

David Warder, 32, of Frostburg, took the win with a seven under par 47. It was Warder’s first time on the course but it sure didn’t seem like it. Warder tallied eight birdies and only one bogey as players completed 18 holes from the short tees — two loops of nine — on a very dark night.

Bill Shreve, 47, of Cumberland, was second in the Men’s Advanced Division with a 50. Kevin Spradlin, 44, of Frostburg, placed third with a 54 and Brian Padovini was fifth (55).

Behind Bradshaw, Barbeau, 29, of Cumberland, and Boden, 39, of Little Orleans, finished in a two-way tie for second. Each player finished with a two over par 56 though they went about it quite differently. Barbeau posted three birdies but countered that effort with three bogeys and a double bogey. Boden, meanwhile, posted zero birdies but largely stayed out of trouble — it’s his home course, as he lives within walking distance — and limited his score card to two bogeys.

Noah Spradlin, 24, of Frostburg, completed his third round of the day with a tired arm (and body) and finished with a 60.

Evan Padovini, 12, of Frostburg, posted a personal best from 18 shorts on the course with a one over par 55. Padovini carded three birdies and had multiple near-misses to indicate an under par performance is on the horizon.

The round was free to play for all players.

With the win, Warder chose an Axiom Halloween-themed Simon Lizotte Hex. Shreve won the closest-to-the-pin (CTP) contest and took home the recently released Axiom “Rise from the Crave” Sarah Hokom glow Crave fairway driver.
