Update August 4: Alas, it wasn't to be. But Kinkel still had a good showing at the Disc Golf World Championships in Kansas City: He finished in a three-way tie for 6th.

Here's the full results.

First reporting:

North Charleston's Blaine Kinkel needs only win one more disc golf title to do what no one has yet done: Win all three major amateur disc golf titles in one year.

He's already won the US Amateur Disk Golf Championship and the Bowling Green Amateur and this week he's off to play the Disc Golf World Championships in Kansas City.

The Post and Courier has a solid write-up of Kinkel and what's going on, and you can dig a little deeper by checking out this bio of Kinkel.

The championship gets going today and runs through Saturday (August 1), stay updated over here.
