The final day of the Ledgestone Insurance Open is upon us.  The women head over to Northwood Black and the men will finish the weekend at Eureka Lake.  Paige Pierce held a commanding lead over the rest of the field with a 9 stroke lead coming into the round.  Pierce continued her dominance at Northwood Black shooting a (-1) and total (-19), to win the Ledgestone Insurance Open title.  With Pierce having such a large lead, she mainly had to shoot a clean round and not be too aggressive, her (-1) round was a 989 rated round and wins easily with an 11 stroke win.  Pierce also leads the field in birdie rate (43%) and Circle 1 in regulation (47%).

Missy Gannon takes 2nd place by shooting (+1) at Northwood Black and (-8) total on the weekend.  Gannon was 2nd in birdie rate (32%) with  90% C1X putting on the day.  Sarah Hokum finishes in 3rd place by shooting (+3) at Northwood Black and (-5) total on the weekend.

The MPO heads over to Eureka Lake to finish up the weekend.  Kyle Klein started the final round hot going five for five birdies on the chase card.  Coming into the round only 4 strokes separated the top six players.  Thunderstorms were looming over the Peoria, IL region as a huge line of severe storms were heading towards Eureka Lake.  Tournament play was delayed due to lightning strikes in the surrounding area after 4 holes played on lead card.  The weather delay sent all tournament staff, competitors, and spectators back to safety and then with the storms never letting up, the round was cancelled.  According to PDGA rules, “Dangerous conditions at a PDGA sanctioned event may require a Tournament Director (TD) to consider the need to suspend play or outright cancel the remainder of the event.”
