A Look Ahead At This Weekend’s Field

The recently concluded Preserve Championship in Clearwater, MN was a remarkable showcase of skill and unwavering determination. Amongst the fierce competition, it was Catrina Allen and Ricky Wysocki who rose to the top, claiming the well-deserved titles of champions.

Allen displayed tenacity, securing her second win this season despite formidable competition from Kristin Tattar. Meanwhile, Ricky Wysocki showcased his resilience, standing strong in the final round and clinching his first Elite Event victory of the season. Read more about this year’s edition of The Preserve Championship.
