Three A-Tiers took the professional spotlight last weekend, and Team Prodigy was well-represented.

Paul Ulibarri and Seppo Paju put on a show at the 2018 Daniel Boe Memorial in Escondido, Calif., battling until the very end. Paju entered the final round in a three-way tie for first with Ulibarri lurking a stroke behind.

The teammates clutch shots and big putts throughout the round, but in the end, Ulibarri launched a 1056-rated hot round to finish with a one-stroke win at a 30-under par 144. Paju tied for second.

Melody Waibel finished fifth in Open Women, shooting a 21-over par 195.

Catrina Allen picked up her second win in The Lone Star State this year, winning The Open at Flat Creek in Marble Falls, Texas. Allen trimmed a five-stroke deficit after the first round down to one stroke after the second.

She tied the hot round on the final day to finish with a 4-under par 188 and a one-stroke win.

Another collection of top pros made their way to Throw Down the Mountain VI in Brooksville, Fla., where Matthew Orum continued his hot start in 2018 with a second place finish. Orum shot a 25-under par 158, and has yet to finish outside of the top-3 in an event, including an A-Tier win.

Cameron Colglazier’s 18-under par 165 landed him in a tie for sixth, and Florida native Nicholas Masters finished two strokes back in a tie for eighth, while averaging 19 points above his current rating.

Several Prodigy players also participated in the Sherando Spartan PRO ODDS#2 - I81DGS#1 in Stephens City, Va. Sam Shiley got the win with a 9-under par 106 and Cody Bradshaw finished third with a 6-under par 109. Allie Stone tied for second in Open Women at a 28-over par 143.

Austin Lytle got a six-stroke win at the Perkerson Park Open 2018 in Atlanta, Ga. Lytle shot the hot score in both rounds and finished with a 13-under par 109.

Back in California, Dallas Albright was able to come away with a win in extra holes. His 11-under par 105 put him in a three-way tie atop the leaderboard, taking the win in a playoff.

Several team members were in doubles action during the weekend, with a few topping the podium.

Jamie Pay and Clayton Morgan teamed up to win March Madness Doubles and Nick Snelling and his partner won the Iron Lion’s Bettendorf Doubles. It’s the third year in a row Snelling has won the event.

At MDS Shakopee, Tommy Locke and his partner won with Daniel Polk finishing second. Cale Leiviska finished fourth and Mitch Privette finished fifth.
