Will Schusterick heads into this week’s Konopiste Open, the year’s first professional major, on a high note.
Schusterick traveled to compete in the Pärnu Open 2018 in Estonia, and held off a late charge to take the win. He posted the hot score in the first two rounds on the way to a 22-under par 164 total over three rounds.
Took down the win by 1 shot at the Pärnu Open! Happy to be back on top and excited for Konopiste! 💪 The course in Pärnu was a lot of fun and it was a tough battle with @eagle_wmcm coming down the stretch. Thanks to @prodigydiscbaltic for all the amazing hospitality throughout the week! My 400G D1 came in clutch! 🙌 #prodigydisc #prodigydiscbaltic #dgi #estonia #discgolfinstruction
Catrina Allen and Paul Ulibarri will join him in the Czech Republic after posting strong finishes of their own. Allen finished in a three-way tie for second at the Skellefteå Open in Sweden after a tight battle in the Open Women’s division that resulted in a four-way tie for first. Her second place finish at an A-Tier continues a strong summer.
Ulibarri heads to Konopiste after a 12th place showing at the Great Lakes Open, a Disc Golf Pro Tour Event in Milford, Mich. Cale Leiviska was also at the event and finished seventh.
Chris Dickerson will remain in the States, where he has continued to rack up win after win. Last weekend in Harrisonburg, Va., was no different, as he topped the podium with a 12-under par 96 in two rounds.
This weekend I played in the Rocktown Classic in Harrisonburg, VA. The course was very unique. Around 2/3's of the holes were low ceiling where the distance would be putter distance but it made more sense to throw a mid range. Overall I enjoyed the course and the tournament staff was great! After two rounds I was able to come away with the win! Thanks to @prodigydisc and @airborndiscgolf
The win marks Dickerson’s 18th of the year and third in a row. Dan Hastings finished second in the event with an 8-under par 100 and Lance Brown finished in a tie for eighth.
Jacob Henson has made the most out of his summer tour, taking down the Bluff City Classic in Memphis, Tenn. Henson rocketed to the top of the leaderboard with a 1059-rated first round and remained there all three rounds, totaling a 32-under par 143. Tray Desnoyer tossed a 17-under par 158 to finish fourth.
Mandy Sharp took first in Open Women with her 18-over par 193. Sharp also took the wire-to-wire win and finished an impressive 19 strokes ahead.
Mitch Privette won the White Cedar Open in Superior, Wisc., using a scorching first round of his own. He rode a 1040-rated round one to an 18-under par 100 total. He didn’t slow down much in round two, winning by eight strokes. Ben Kroll’s 9-under par 109 landed him in fourth.
Dustin Perry overcame a five-stroke deficit to win a tight race at Throw at the Stone IV in Macon, Ga. Perry saved his best for the third and final round to jump into a first-place tie, eventually winning the playoff. Austin Lytle came in sixth with a 21-under par 162.
Nick Snelling won a close one at Bringing Back Baker. Snelling came back from a stroke back after the first round in Kewanee, Ill., to win by one, shooting a 23-under par 103 total.
Pete Ulibarri was also a one stroke winner in Pinetop, Ariz., at Top of the Pines. Ulibarri tossed a 1038-rated second round and averaged 14 points above his rating to finish with a 31-under par 146.
Cooper Legee shot a 5-under par 56 at the Hoot and Scoot II, a one-round event in Franklin, Mass., to take the win and Daniel Polk won the MDS Crown College, an unsanctioned event. Polk also finished sixth at the Spamtown Open in Austin, Minn.
