WEEKEND ROUNDUP: DICKERSON WINS NO. 20, ALLEN BACK TO WINNING WAYS
Article by Idris Garcia
Chris Dickerson did not need another A-Tier win under his belt to make his season impressive, but with the Charlie Vettiner/Wendell Moore Open title in tow, it’s heading more toward historic.
Dickerson’s triumph in Louisville, Ky., marked his 20th win of the season with five months to go in the year. He shot back-to-back 1060-rated rounds to open the event and closed the door on the competition by tying for the hot round in the finals.
Dickerson racked up a 42-under par 167 total over the three rounds and final nine. In third after competing in the finals was Matt Orum, whose debut season with Prodigy has also come with plenty of success. His 38-under par 171 ensured a top-3 spot for the fourth time in five A-Tier events this year.
Cameron Colglazier’s 25-under par 151 put him in ninth, while Dutch Napier finished in 10th, one stroke back. Jacob Henson and Cameron Messerschmidt posted top-15 finishes in the event.
In the Pro Masters +55 division, Prodigy Disc co-founder and Charlie Vettiner DGC designer, David Greenwell, took the 1st place trophy.
Catrina Allen is no stranger to the spotlight herself, as she picked up her seventh win in events designated as A-Tiers and above this season. Allen dominated the Des Moines Challenge in Iowa with a 5-under par 235 total over four rounds.
She was the only competitor under par in Open Women and posted the best score in three out of the four rounds. Her strong showing put her ahead of second by ten throws.
Billy Ray Osborn made the trip to Charlotte, N.C., for the PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships. His week got off to a good start as he finished 10th in mixed doubles and won the putting competition.
Over the grueling week of six rounds and semifinals, Osborn finished with a 6-under par 399, which included a 1002-rated round five. He placed ninth in Amateur Masters 50+.
Ben Page continued to shine in his home state of Alabama, winning the Tour de Rocket City - Stage 3 at Brahan Springs in Huntsville. Page tossed a 20-under par 88 for a two-stroke win, his sixth of the year.
Allie Stone got the win in Montross, Va., at The Lair Championship at Lake Marshall. Stone had the low score in both rounds on the way to a 30-over par 160 to finish first by five. Ricky Snapp finished in a tie for second in Open Men with a 3-under par 127.
Cooper Legee won the latest stop on the Maine Disc Golf Tour at Dragan Field. He launched a course-record 44 in round two to come back and narrowly leapfrog into first by one throw. Josh Seeley tied for third.
