WEEKEND ROUNDUP: COLGLAZIER TAKES DOWN SECOND A-TIER, KAJIYAMA WINS KOREA OPEN
Article by Idris Garcia
Cameron Colglazier got his second A-Tier win of the year in Tyler, Texas, at the Piney Woods Open. Colglazier stayed steady throughout the event, winning the event even without shooting the hot score in any of the three rounds.
He totaled a 24-under par 64 which put him in a tie for first after erasing a two stroke deficit. He took the playoff for his sixth win of the season. Matt Orum worked his way back into the mix with the low score of the final round and finished in a tie for third. Both competitors will head to Rock Hill, S.C., for the United States Disc Golf Championship.
Manabu Kajiyama dominated at the Korea Open Championship in Gyeongju Nasandeul Park, Gyeongsangbuk-do, South Korea. Kajiyama highlighted his win with a 1069-rated second round on the way to a 29-under 177 over three rounds and a final nine. The Japan native won by a whopping 15 strokes. Hyundo Jang finished in a fifth place tie. Shinah Kim took the win in the Open Women’s division.
Gannon Buhr continues his big year. The young pro recently became the youngest player to reach a 1000 rating and backed it up with his second Open win of the year. He took at least a share of the low score in both rounds at the GVCCC in Des Moines, Iowa, and tossed a 20-under 90 total.
Daniel Polk kept his Pro Masters 40+ streak in tact at the Everyday Fall Open in Inver Grove Heights, Minn. Polk nipped the competition by a stroke with his 12-under 96 to mark his eighth straight win in the division. He finished with a 12-under 96 over two rounds.
Michael Gibney won the Azalea City Classic Warm Up, a Southern Nationals event, with Josh Hollingsworth coming in second. Nick Snelling completed the sweep, winning both Matzens Lake Doubles and Singles. He took down the doubles with Dawson Snelling.
