Idlewild Open: Round Two Recap

By Baker Helton

Moving day lived up to its name for both divisions at the Idlewild Open today. The Idlewild course provides players the opportunity to score well but also can take their lunch. 


Paul McBeth showed why he is number one in the world in the MPO division, moving from second to the lead today. Also moving up one spot was Jeremy Koling as he slid into second place with a nine-under-par to play the same score as yesterday. 

The story of the day was a player who moved up fourteen spots to be three throws out of the lead going into Championship Sunday. Jordan Castro carded the hot round with a ten-under-par performance. Castro did this with one double-bogey and two eagles on the day. 

Rounding out the lead card tomorrow will be Adam Hammes. Hammes would have been in a tie for second if he had avoided the double-bogey on eighteen and just carded a par. However, as the hardest hole on the course, it is no surprise that Hammes felt Idlewild’s teeth as he finished up the day. 

Final round coverage of the Idlewild Open will be broadcast on the Disc Golf Network and YouTube for free starting at 1:35 PM ET tomorrow. Tell your friends and tune in to watch!


The FPO division saw quite a bit of movement today as the tournament leader and second place traded positions to start. In a nine throw swing, Sarah Hokom was able to take the lead from Holly Finley. 

Finley struggled early in the round while Hokom carded four birdies and only two bogeys on the day. Hokom now leads the field by four. 

Making a move from the chase card was Catrina Allen. Allen threw even par for the day to move up into a tie for second place with Holly Finley. 

Rounding out the FPO card will be Ellen Widboom. Widboom has played consistent golf as of late and will seek to stave off Paige Pierce while advancing two or three strokes on the leaders to have a look at a podium finish. 

Live coverage of the FPO division will begin around 4 PM ET and will be broadcast as part of the final round coverage on both the Disc Golf Network and the Disc Golf Pro Tour YouTube channel. Make sure to tune in and watch!
