FPO LOOKAHEAD – Who’s Got What It Takes To Win in Houston This Weekend?

Missy Gannon secured her first Major title at the USWDGC last weekend, adding to her impressive record of 5 Elite wins, including victories at 2 Tour Championships, 2 Ledgestone events, and the Des Moines Challenge. Gannon’s win also propelled her to 4th on the list of women with the most career PDGA cash, surpassing Sarah Hokom. Eveliina Salonen maintained her position at #2 in the DGPT Standings with consistent top 10 finishes, including a recent 2nd place at the USWDGC and her win at the Chess.com Invitational. Ohn Scoggins has also consistently showcased great performances, with three straight top-5 finishes on tour in Texas and sharing the course record at Brock Park from the previous year’s podium performance. 

Kristin Tattar seeks to bounce back from a 6th place finish at USWDGC and finishing 2nd at the Texas State Championships in the last two years. Standings show Missy Gannon leading for the first time in her career in both DGPT World Standings and StatMando Power Rankings, with notable newcomers like Heidi Laine cracking the top 10! Performers like Catrina Allen, Hailey King, Holyn Handley, and Valerie Mandujano have unique strengths and histories at Texas State. Some notable past winners include Des Reading with 7 wins, Paige Pierce with 4 wins, and Sarah Hokom with 3 wins, among many others.

MPO LOOKAHEAD – Can Anyone Unseat Ricky Wysocki?

Ricky Wysocki boasts an unprecedented record at Texas State, having never lost when he has played. He is a perfect 6 for 6, including 4 wins with a PDGA Elite Series designation Wysocki remains the only MPO player to maintain a flawless record at an Elite or Major event after playing more than twice. 

Some other notable competitors to look out for this weekend are Buhr, Anttila, Barela, and Klein. They have been consistently making it to the top 10 positions in the first three DGPT events. Buhr and Barela have been particularly impressive, with no missed top 5 finishes, and all except Klein have secured a win. 

Calvin Heimburg, the defending Texas States champion and 2023 DGPT and PDGA Player of the Year, returned from injury to earn his first podium of the season at the Open at Austin. Other notable past winners include Ricky Wysocki with 6 wins, Paul McBeth with 3 wins, and others like Ken Climo, Nikko Locastro, and Gannon Buhr with multiple victories. Standings show Gannon Buhr narrowly leading, with just 11 points separating 3rd (Barela) and 1st (Buhr), while players like Cole Redalen make a return to the top 10.
