Sacramento, Calif - Jeremy Sieverts, midfielder for the Denver Outlaws, won the 2017 Major League Lacrosse All-Star FlingGolf Invitational, held at Haggin Oaks Golf in Sacramento. In addition to the $1,000 winner's purse, Sieverts took home an additional $500 as he also won the closest to the pin on the 14th hole (sponsored by TourMark Grips), and longest fling on the 18th hole.
Eric Law, also of the Denver Outlaws came in second, and Brian Phipps of the Chesapeake Bayhawks, came in third in the field of eight MLL All Stars.
"It was a great experience to be in Sacramento for All Star Weekend and to be able to compete against some of the best lacrosse players in the world on a golf course with FlingGolf as well as the lacrosse field," Sieverts said. "It was fun to play FlingGolf for the first time and quickly pick up on both distance and accuracy of the FlingStick... and certainly always fun to compete with other MLL players."
The event was hosted by Haggin Oaks Golf Complex and presented and sponsored by PlusOne Sports, the creator of FlingGolf and the FlingStick.
Alex Van Alen, CEO of PlusOne Sports said, "We love seeing these guys come out and compete and have a blast playing FlingGolf at the same time. That's what it's all about, creating a new vibe on the golf course that respects the traditional game, but brings an athletic, fun energy to the course. Congratulations to Jeremy, Brian, Eric and the other All Stars."
Other MLL ALL Star FlingGolf players included Will Manny of the New York Lizards, Connor Buczek of the Florida Launch, Matt Abbott of the Chesapeake Bayhawks and Mike Simon, Zach Currier, and Eric Law of the Denver Outlaws.
