The first stop on the 2023 WLF Tour was San Diego, which was filmed for a segment to be broadcast by ESPN later this summer. This tournament was the first WLF event to be held on the west coast and was held at two different courses: The Welk for the team doubles tournament and Twin Oaks Golf Course for the individual championship.
Despite less than ideal weather, the best FlingGolfers battled it out and produced epic finishes in all competitions.

Apex FlingCrew - featuring Sam "Scantron" Scannell and Austin "Showtime" Ebersole - held on to win against 4 other teams in the finals.
Men's Individual Champion
Sam "Scantron" Scannell bested Jake "Island Hopper" Anderson by one stroke with a birdie after an additional sudden death playoff hole was needed!
Women's Individual Champion
Birdie of Prey, Krysta Smith, pulled away from the Women's field on the back nine and secured a two stroke victory.
