2018 Ledgestone Open: Nothing tastes like Frescura

Moving day is in the books here at the Ledgestone Insurance Open presented by Discraft. There was a lot of movement on the board today as players moved into position for the final day of competition.

Reid Frescura started the day -9 and ended the day -18. He tied for the hot round for the day and moved into a tie for second place going into the final day. He landed 11 birdies on the day and had a rough hole thirteen, other than that he played clean golf missing only two circle one putts and one circle two putt. He will be looking to make a name for himself on the lead card tomorrow.

Other players shooting hot rounds today were Kevin Jones and Bobby Musick. Kevin worked to make up for his sub-par round yesterday and that he did. Kevin missed the scramble on holes five, nine, and ten, ultimately carding two bogeys and a double bogey on the three. On hole 16 Kevin had a crush drive that went OB across 13’s fairway and into the water. He was far enough down the fairway to be able to get up and down for the par. Kevin had thirteen birdies for the day and will be looking to make a move from the chase card tomorrow.

Bobby Musick improved from his even-par round on Friday to throw a bogey-free -9 today. Bobby only missed one circle two putt today on hole eighteen and only two-putted on two holes (seven and fifteen). Bobby will be a few cards back from the lead but in a good scoring position for the final day of competition.

The lead card today kept things close making sure all of the players looking to make their move onto the lead card did not have an opportunity. A. J. Risley had a comfortable enough lead that he maintained his top position while only carding a -3 for the day. A. J.’s four OB throws were punctuated by his only bogeys for the day. He will be looking to hold off a charging field with a three throw lead going into the final round here at Lake Eureka.

Chris Dickerson and Nate Sexton were also able to retain their spots on the lead card going into the final day. They both played -7 on the day, while Dickerson carded one more bogey than Sexton. They will be looking to push for first tomorrow alongside Reid Frescura.

You can catch all of the MPO final round action starting at 4:15 PM ET tomorrow here at the Ledgestone Insurance Open presented by Discraft.
