Catrina Allen has looked right at home in Oklahoma. A week after picking up an 18 stroke win at the Oklahoma Open in Tulsa, the Minnesota-native posted a 17 stroke win at the 5th Annual Buffalo Run in McAlester.
Allen has averaged nearly 26 points over her rating over the two events, and has now collected nine A-Tier trophies on the year. Her dominant 9-under par 174 total over three rounds was again the only score under par in her field. Allen jumped out to a six stroke lead in round one and collected eight more strokes in round three.
Cameron Colglazier has also greeted fall and all of the seasonal changes that come with it by winning his last three tournaments. He capped off his proverbial hat trick in Memphis, Tenn., at the Lee Naquin Memorial.
Colglazier claimed a share of the hot score in round one and then had the best scores for the remaining two rounds. He finished with a 16-under par 146 total to take the win by six strokes.
Marcos Castillo has also been trending well at the end of the season, grabbing his second win in the last three events. Castillo also posted low scores across three rounds at the Toss Up at RockWind in Hobbs, N.M., to secure the three stroke victory. He totaled a 9-under 162.
Austin Criswell locked up a top-10 finish with his 5-over par 176 to finish in a tie for eight. Kolby Sanchez took fifth in Intermediate.
Michael Gibney defended his title at Thriller at the Hiller 6, a Southern Nationals event in Biloxi, Miss. Gibney erased a four stroke deficit going into the second and final round to finish in a three-way tie for first.
He and his fellow competitors duked it out for an extra six holes before Gibney could be crowned the winner. He sunk two putts outside the circle to keep the playoff alive and defend his first title as a professional.
