WEEKEND ROUNDUP: PRODIGY RACKS UP SIX A-TIER TITLES ACROSS US AND EUROPE
There were six A-Tiers over the weekend, and Team Prodigy collected at least one first place trophy at four of them, with team members combining for six titles.
The most convincing wins came from Chris Dickerson and Catrina Allen at the 2019 Music City Open. Allen stretched her margin to 16 strokes at the Nashville, Tenn., event and had the best score by five strokes in all three rounds.
She totaled a 17-under par 199 by shooting all three rounds in the 60’s on the monstrous par 72 11,290-foot Ravenwood track. Allen was the only FPO competitor to shoot even one round in the 60’s during the dominant performance.
Dickerson also crushed his way to a hefty margin, winning by eight. He had the hot score in just one of the three rounds, but stayed consistent throughout the weekend on the 13,496-foot MPO layout. Dickerson has now won 17 events this season and 100 career Open wins.
Cale Leiviska won in Madison, Wisc., at the 27th Mad City Open for his second win in a row and fourth in his last 5 starts. He turned in a 29-under 168 over three rounds to beat out teammate Donny Ferguson by two. Daniel Polk added the Pro Masters 40+ title to the mix with an 18-under 179. He nipped the competition by one.
Väinö Mäkelä won the Prodigy Disc Pro Tour 2019 event in Oulu, Finland. He found himself in a five stroke deficit heading into the third and final round before vaulting into first with a 1058-rated effort. He finished with a 31-under 164 total.
Henric Hagman took down the Swedish Championships in Västervik, Sweden, to defend his title from last year. Hagman outlasted his fellow competitors over five rounds in three days for the win, totaling a 34-under 269. It was his first win in singles competition this year.
Orum Cruises to Prides Creek Open Win, Kajiyama Wins Asia Championship
Matt Orum picked up a seven stroke win at the Championship at Prides Creek in Petersburg, Ind. Orum found himself tied at the top after round one but came out scorching hot in round two to shoot a 1076-rated round. He rode that to a 34-under 94 total over the two rounds.
Prodigy also had two National Champions crowned in Estonia at Eesti Meistrivõistlused Discgolfis 2019. Madli Vaht took down a heavily contested FPO Division in a three-way playoff. Vaht tossed a 17-over par 251 over four rounds to secure the tie at the top before winning the playoff. Mathias Villota won the Juniors Division by 5 with a 7-under 227. Eno Juul also tied for third in Pro Masters 40+.
Manabu Kajiyama won The 7th Asia Championship Fukuoka, Fukuoka, Japan. Hyundo Jang finished seventh in MPO, and Shinah Kim finished second in FPO.
Team Prodigy also got wins from Jamie Pay at The Golden Horseshoe Open, G.T. Hancock at the TCS Flex Start Sunday @ City Disc Park and Kolby Sanches in Intermediate at the Land of Enchantment Open.
