Big Jerm's biggest accomplishment to date is his capture of the Amateur World Championship in 2008. As he stated to Discraft (his sponsor);
"Nothing could ever beat the rush and excitement I felt as I was finishing the last hole of the tournament by getting an eagle 2 on the downhill 780 foot hole with a huge gallery watching from down below." *
Jeremy Koling has grown quite the fan-base in the Hickory, Yadkinville, Ashe and Wilkes County Disc Golf Clubs due to his friendliness, great play and consistent attendance at local events.
He's however, finding it hard to come around too much with a busy PDGA Pro Tour during 2009. His finishes for the year are:
- 3rd - Buckhorn Open
- 9th - Carolina Clash
- 6th - Azalea Disc Golf Tournament
- 14th - Dogwood Crosstown Classic
- 2nd - Alamance County Pro Am
- 1st - Yadkinville Spring Tour
- 2nd - Mountain Disc Golf Experience
- 8th - Tar Heel Tournament
- 1st - High Country Throwdown
- 12th - Midtown Chiropractic Raleigh Disc Golf Championship
- 60th - PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships
- 4th - Vibram Open at Maple Hill
- 4th - Hickory Disc Golf Classic
- 1st - Yadkin Open
On September 19, 2009, Jeremy captured the Wilkes County Disc Golf Club #1 Bag-Tag (and the Yadkinville Disc Golf Club's #1 as well)! The tags were on the line during the PDGA Yadkin Spring Tour event in Yadkinville, NC. He captured both with an INSANE 15 UNDER, 39, paired with a second-round (not-quite as impressive) 49 for a total score of 20 under (88).
The first-round 39 is the Yadkin County Park course record and was rated as a 1087 round by PDGA.
We are very proud to have Jeremy as a member of our club and look forward to his next big win!
Go, Big Jerm!!
