With her hot start, the two-time PDGA World Champion holds a four-throw lead over Rebecca Cox and Kristin Tattar.
Consistency was the theme for Allen, ranking in the top five in major strokes-gained stat categories, including leading the field in strokes gained putting and strokes gained in C1X. 2022 Preserve champion, Tattar, experienced some putting woes inside the circle, which appears to be the primary differentiator for the reigning PDGA World Champion.
