2019 WACO presented by Dynamic Discs Round 2 MPO Recap: Hot scores on a chilly day

By Baker Helton
Round two of the Waco Annual Charity Open was one for the record books as Paul McBeth shot the hot round of an -18 by birdieing every hole except 11 and grabbing the eagle two on 18.

The day didn’t start with Paul McBeth though; the day started with several other players making a push for the lead card. Seppo Paju and Andrew Presnell were two players who had hot rounds today. Seppo carded a bogey-free -15 with three eagles. He could have been two throws better had he landed his two circle two putts that he missed. Andrew Presnell carded a -14 today with a 100% scramble rate. He did land one circle two putt on hole thirteen for birdie. His 100% C1 and C2 rates helped propel him twenty-four spots up to a tie for fourteenth place.

The fireworks happened on the lead and chase cards where two familiar faces were battling it out to see who would be in the lead. On the lead card, Ricky Wysocki was gunning for a course record only to have his record upstaged by two throws by Paul McBeth. Ricky only had to scramble on one hole today, he did miss one circle one putt on fifteen that would have put him at -17. He also missed two circle two putts which could have put him in position for a -19. On the chase card, Paul McBeth missed two circle two putts today, one from the woods and a forty footer that missed a fraction too low. As Paul was walking up to hole 18 he had an easy putt to finish his -18, he made two remarks; first: “this putt will be easier than the last 18 down” and second: “once I get these [Discraft] discs dialed in…” The point has been made, the switch has not slowed McBeth down and he is here to make a point. In his post-round interview McBeth said he would do whatever it takes to win during the final round of the Waco Annual Charity Open.

With another -18 Paul McBeth is still two off the lead going into the final round of the Waco Annual Charity Open presented by Dynamic Discs. The lead card tomorrow will be Ricky Wysocki, Paul McBeth, Paul Ulibarri, and Emerson Keith. You will not want to miss out as the top players in our sport look to tame the bEast.
