The Memorial Championship is officially over and the final day did not fail to excite
In the MPO division there was one ace by Tommy Eckmann on hole eight. Tommy ended up finishing the tournament tied for 82nd place, but an ace will definitely get the blood pumping and lead to some excitement!
In the birdie category Dutch Napier and Nate Sexton won the day both carding flawless -11 rounds to finish out the tournament. However, the most impressive birdie of the day award goes to James Conrad who crushed a drive over 450 feet on the par three hole nine to card an easy, inside the circle birdie.
In the FPO division Paige Pierce carded ten birdies and had it not been for a few bogies could have finished the tournament over 20 under par. Sandi Hendel also shot a nice round finishing -1 for the day to move up three spots and secure an 8th place finish.
In the MPO division Eagle McMahon will have a few pars come back to haunt him seeing as he had a few chances to close the gap between him and Simon Lizotte but ultimately he was not able to secure the win. A newer name to the top of the Pro Tour leader board is Noah Meintsma. Noah had an impressive 100% C1 putting percentage for round four and if he could have increased his C2 putting percentage and landed a few less pars he might have not finished tied for sixth or even landed himself a top five finish.
In the FPO division Sarah Hokom played par golf which can be a safe bet on the final day, however in this case it saw her finish one spot below where she started the day ultimately leaving The Memorial Championship with a sixth place finish.
Paul McBeth carded a double bogey on hole fifteen that would have otherwise given him sole ownership of fourth place but ultimately Ricky Wysocki finished in fourth and McBeth owned the fifth place finish for the first Pro Tour stop of the season.
James Conrad road the bogey struggle bus for three holes today that ultimately dropped him a few finishing spots. It started on hole twelve where he did not quite make the island green. Then on hole 13 he went for a birdie putt and ultimately fell OB. This lead to the water bottle debacle which saw James three putt inside the circle to finish the hole with a seven.
In the FPO division Jennifer Allen had two double bogies and three bogies to drop her two spots to finish tied for fourth place. Had she not taken any of those additional throws she would have finished second place at the first Pro Tour stop of the season.
That’s all for the first stop of the 2018 Pro Tour. Make sure you are ready to tune in and watch the second stop on the tour March 15-17 in Waco, Texas at the Waco Annual Charity Open. Live coverage will start each day at 4pm ET.
