Catrina Allen is now a perfect two for two at A-Tiers in November, taking down the Northwest Arkansas Open in Springdale. Her two wins this month pair with another two in October to run her win streak up to four.

She's won those events by an average of 16 shots, and her dominance wan't absent in the Natural State as she took it down by a margin of 21 throws. Allen had the hot round on each of the three days, and her second round 2-under par 54 was the only under par round in her field for the weekend. 

Allen has a shot to keep the streak alive at The Open at Belton this weekend, another A-Tier and her final scheduled event of the year.

Several other Prodigy teammates had notable finishes in Arkansas, including Cale Leiviska, Kevin Jones, and Luke Humphries, who all finished inside the top-10 in Open. Gannon Buhr also continues to recover well from injury with his 11th place showing.

Leiviska finished second by just one stroke in tying for second. He made his mark on the event in Round Two, torching the course for a bogey-free 14-under par 42 that garnered a 1086 unofficial rating. 

He was masterful during the round, never taking two pars in a row while constantly stringing birdies together, including runs of four and five consecutive birdies. 

Jones finished in fifth and also topped the 1080 mark with his opening round 13-under 45. It was another unblemished round where pars were scarce. He closed the round on a heater, taking nine birdies in his last ten holes. His birdie on Hole 18 marked six in a row to finish.

Humphries added in a tied for sixth place finish with his consistent play, netting the same rating in each of the first two rounds. He also had a bogey-free run in the opening round and maintained his position toward the top of the leaderboard all weekend.

Matty O Wins 'Shootout' Over Colglazier

Matt Orum won the 7th Annual Shootout @ The Creek, edging out teammate Cameron Colglazer. It was another battle between the two Alabama natives in Foley, with Orum grabbing his fourth win of the year. He started with a one stroke lead after Round One and was able to lock it down in the second.
