Moving day is complete at Discraft’s Ledgestone Insurance Open presented by GripEq. Players in both divisions were able to separate themselves from the pack to have substantial leads going into championship Sunday. 

FPO

Catrina Allen continued her dominant play at the Sunset Hills course, carding a nine-under-par performance to elevate her lead to eleven on the field. With only one bogey on the day, Allen is showing she has what it takes to bring home the victory this weekend. 

The race for second place is close between four players. 

Paige Pierce currently owns second place by one stroke. She will be pushing for a shot at first if Allen falters but will also be seeking to maintain a second-place finish. Watch for Pierce to focus on course management in this final round. 

Heather Young is currently in solo third only one throw behind Pierce. Young traditionally plays the course and does not worry too much about her other competitors. Should Pierce find herself in trouble pushing for better scoring, Young is poised to move up into the second-place position. 

Tied for fifth are Sarah Hokom and Hailey King. Both players have experience pushing for a podium finish. Look for Hokom to draw on course management and King to use distance off the tee to jockey for position on the leaderboard. 

Live coverage of the final round starts on the Disc Golf Network and YouTube at 10:10 ET. 

MPO

Ricky Wysocki was the MPO player who shined as play shifted to the Eureka course for the tournament’s final two days. Wysocki distanced himself from the field with a one-stroke off hot round eight-under-par. The rest of the lead card faltered as they collectively shot three-over-par. 

Kevin Jones was the only player to keep a position on the lead card for the final round with a three-under-par performance. It took him until after the first four-hole loop and hole five to get things into gear. He was four-over-par and had quite a bit of work to make up ground on the field at that point in the round. 

Two players who made pushes on moving day were Paul McBeth and Chris Dickerson. Both players tied for the hot round of nine-under-par. McBeth’s drive was enough to move him into third place, nine throws behind Wysocki. Dickerson jumped 31 spots into a tie for ninth place. 

Rounding out the lead card will be Anthony Barela, who edged out Gregg Barsby for the position with the hotter round between the two. Barsby had a look at owning fourth with a putt on eighteen but missed it to have to settle for a share of fourth and the top spot on the chase card. 

Live coverage of the final round of Discraft’s Ledgestone Insurance Open presented by GripEq will begin at 4:10 PM ET on both YouTube and Disc Golf Network. Make plans to tune in and watch!
