Well I just heard from Nikko and he said he had a really good time up in Rockford this weekend.
Took took 1st place in the A tier with a 9 throw margin of victory over George Smith and Avery Jenkins. I Think he said Chris Sprague was playing really well but fell off the last round.
This is Nikko’s First A tier Victory and he looking forward to Centralia next week and a trip back to Tel-mark Wisconsin the following week for an event on a ski slope.
I wanted to post this following email that was sent to me from a player that was in Rockford this weekend:
I really just wanted to say how pleasantly surprised I was to see, talk to and watch Nikko this weekend @ the Illinois Open in Rockford. I’ve seen comments about Nikko, and heard people not speaking that kindly of him, and I completely disagree. This weekend he showed why he is representing Gateway on and off the course. He played very well, as he has been all year, but more impressively, he was very approachable and nice, all why being a very good ambassador of the sport and of your company. By the way, he never stops! He was putting for hours before the rounds, and quite a while after them as well. I didn’t get a chance to tell him good job, but I imagine if I did that he would have been a nice person to talk to. He’s one of the best young guns on the tour and the way he played and acted this weekend will make people take a longer look at Gateway and know you guys are for real. Thanks for all you’ve done for the sport, all you do for the sport, and all you’ll be doing for years to come.
Thanks Dave!(and thanks Nikko)
Its letters like this that make what we do at Gateway WORTH it!!!.
