Several Prodigy players started their tour seasons strong in Vegas, while others stayed local and picked up decisive wins.
Allen had at least a share of the lead after three of the four rounds and was one of just three women in the field to post a 1000-rated round, with her 2-under par 56 in round one earning a 1007 unofficial rating.
Melody Waibel bounced back for a 10th place finish, shooting a 16-over par 258.
On the Open Men’s side, Seppo Paju and Cale Leiviska battled the wind for top-20 showings at the event. Paju’s 20-under par 222 landed him in 15th place, while Leiviska finished two strokes back in 18th place.
Chris Dickerson stayed on the east coast and took the win in Spike Hyzer’s: Stumpy’s Fling and Ching in Mooresville, N.C. His dominant 41-under par 152 was nine strokes clear of second place and marked his sixth consecutive win to start the year.
Benjamin Page won the Tour de Rocket City - Stage 1 at Mastin Lake in Huntsville, Ala. The Huntsville native started hot with a 1039-rated opening round and rode an 18-under par 90 total to a five-stroke win.
