The Final Push
2023 DGPT Championship – Round 3 Recap
Nevin Park was broken.
Ricky Wysocki torched the woods in Charlotte, North Carolina on Saturday to open the sprint-to-the-finish finals of the 2023 Disc Golf Pro Tour Championship presented by Barbasol.
Wysocki set the course record with a 10-under round after the cut was made and the scores were reset heading into the weekend at the final Elite Series event of the year.
After starting even par through seven holes, Wysocki birdied the next eight in the daunting woods of Matt Keatts Memorial DGC and added a birdie-birdie finish to become the first player to hit double digits on the weekend. Wysocki was stellar off the need and fairway with just three Circle 2 looks all day.
Not far behind is the newly crowned USDGC champion Kyle Klein, who matched the previous course record with a 7-under showing. He’s three back of Wysocki with 18 holes to go.
Adam Hammes, who surged during Friday’s semifinal round and had an eight-hole birdie streak of his own, is in third at 5-under, and reigning PDGA World Champion Isaac Robinson sits at 4-under.
No. 1 seed Calvin Heimburg is at 2-under, tied for sixth with Cole Redalen and Niklas Anttila.
In FPO, Ohn Scoggins turned in a 5-under hot round for the second-straight day.
Scoggins upped her birdie rate to seven on Saturday after a clean-sheet 5-under on Friday to a take a two-stroke lead. She went 100% from C1X and added a Circle 2 hit late. She scrambled at 67% on the day.
In second place, Kat Mertsch shot 3-under, scrambling at 71% and connecting from a number of tester putts at circle’s edge for birdies and par saves.
No. 2 seed Missy Gannon is one stroke back at 2-under and 2021 PDGA Amateur World Champion Ali Smith rounds out the lead card at plus-1.
No. 1 seed Kristin Tattar will lead the chase card at plus-2 and is tied for fifth with Hailey King.
