LONACONING — After having a few close calls and a couple of losses to Shania Farris in the month of February, Tim Farris decided it was time he put some distance between himself and Shania or anyone else in the field.

The 26-year-old man from Wiley Ford, W.Va. put on a clinic Friday evening during a glow round at Living Waters Family Life Center in Lonaconing to lead a four-person field over 18 holes. Farris was consistent over the front nine with seven bogeys and blitzed the back nine with a two under par effort to finish even at 56. Noah Spradlin, 23, of Frostburg, was second with a 61. Shania Farris, 26, of Wiley Ford, was third with a 62 and Kevin Spradlin, 44, of Frostburg, rounded out the field with an OB-inundated 65.

Shania was the leader at the midway point, only one over par (28). The effort included a birdie and six par-saving putts. Tim was one stroke back at that point (29), while the Spradlin players were tied at 30.

Then Tim reminded everyone why he was selected the Allegany County Disc Golf Club’s Player of the Month for January — it’s ’cause he’s pretty good at disc golf, and over the second half on Friday night, he was a lot better than everyone else. Tim threw for three birdies over the second half of play and managed par five other times. Noah Spradlin, who, like Tim has a stronger arm that is better-suited for longer drives, had a stellar back nine to move from a tie for third into second place. Barely, though, as Spradlin bogeyed No. 18 while Shania picked up two strokes by throwing for par. Four bogeys, along with a double bogey on No. 16, pushed her from first to third over the second half of play.

The players worked through a temperature in the low 30s, but were mostly thankful the strong winds from earlier in the day had died down to a negligible issue. After all, a lack of wind gave players one less thing on which to blame an errant throw.

The club’s February calendar of competition wraps up Sunday with Week 9 of Winter Doubles League at Mile Lane Disc Golf Course in Mount Savage. Tee time is 2 p.m. Play is open to the public. New players are encouraged and the club has discs that can be borrowed for the round.
