FROSTBURG — Colby Mallery’s game caught fire just as the sun began to set.

Mallery, 19, of Mount Savage, was the only one of seven players to throw under par on the back nine en route to a Men’s Advanced Division win in the Allegany County Disc Golf Club’s second sunset-to-glow round on Thursday at Hoffman Park Disc Golf Course in Frostburg.

Mallery tallied eight birdies — four in daylight and four more after the sun went down — and finished at six under par 48. Kevin Spradlin, 44, of Frostburg, also marked a 48 but Mallery edged him in a one-hole playoff. Spradlin finished with nine birdies, including six on the front nine. He ran into trouble on the back nine after the sun set, however, and carded three bogeys. He finished with splits of 27 on the back nine but posted a 21 on the front nine, which gave him a brief two-stroke lead over the seven-player field at the midway point.

Bill Shreve, 47, of Cumberland, and Scott Mallery, 55, of Mount Savage, tied for third in the division as each finishded with a 52. Both players also tallied three birdies apiece.

Noah Spradlin, 24, of Frostburg, represented the Men’s Rec Division and finished with a 55.

Evan Padovini, 12, of Frostburg, carded a personal best two under par 52 en route to the Boys’ Division win. Padovini also finished with a personal best eight birdies, including five on the front nine and three in a row on the back nine.

Myles Shumaker, 12, of Frostburg, made his Allegany County Disc Golf Club debut. He managed to record his first par save on his ninth basket, which happened to be No. 8 on the first loop (his card started the round on No. 9). Shumaker’s putt from the middle of the fairway, roughly 20 feet away from the pin, hyzered into the right side of the cage and circled the basket before settling down.


Bill Shreve won CTP, but not by much.

Myles Shumaker picked No. 7 as the CTP basket. After the round of 18, players gathered at the No. 7 tee pad. Players threw once in reverse order of finish.

Shreve threw fifth, and it was clear from the moment of release that it could be good. It was. After the final two throwers teed off, the group made forward progress towards the pin. Shreve beat out Spradlin’s drive by only a few inches.

Shreve was awarded a Gateway Warlock putter.
